My usual sedentary lifestyle has taken a turn toward the wild side this week; two days of fishing for walleye on the Missouri River and a non-stop weekend of playing drums and singing with Mogen’s Heroes first for an event at Willow Run and then headed for Aberdeen for Saturday and Sunday shows at the Arts Festival in Melgaard Park. I hear they have a stand that offers deep fried cheesecake this year. As good as that sounds, I’d trade it for cool temperatures and a bit of a breeze. Anyway, we’ll be playing shows at 11, 1 and 3 both days.
When last we briefly spoke, I was about to embark on my second day of fishing on the Missouri River. After only catching a couple small ones on Wednesday, my hopes weren’t all that high but right away, I started getting action. Several undersize ones at first but that’s okay I just enjoy the catch. But then..well, let the pictures do the talking.
I’ll bring the camera along to Aberdeen. If you’re of a mind to..stop by and check out Mogen’s Heroes making music. I’ll be the guy playing the drums and sweating profusely. Say hi and give me a bite of your funnel cake.
Oh, and a very happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there.
Thinking of mine for sure. Here’s a photo I found of dad holding me in 1946.
