Happy Fish

Worked from home this morning with Kyle home, and Luke getting home early after his final.  Sue went to work and will be going to visit her mom this afternoon.

Grabbed a slice of pizza with Luke.

We stopped at the pier and dropped the crab traps for a few minutes before heading back home.  I am taking Sue to the railroad so she can catch an early train to NYC.

This day in history "During the American Revolution, the Continental Congress adopts a resolution stating that "the flag of the United States be thirteen alternate stripes red and white" and that "the Union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation." The national flag, which became known as the "Stars and Stripes," was based on the "Grand Union" flag, a banner carried by the Continental Army in 1776 that also consisted of 13 red and white stripes. According to legend, Philadelphia seamstress Betsy Ross designed the new canton for the Stars and Stripes, which consisted of a circle of 13 stars and a blue background, at the request of General George Washington. Historians have been unable to conclusively prove or disprove this legend."

We only catch 2 crabs, but have a couple of surprises in the traps... A huge American Eel.  Not stars and stripes on this guy.  Of course Luke wants to eat it.  We set if free.

Another trap has a really beautiful happy fish.  A nice sized blow-fish, that Luke proceeds to play with to get it to puff up...Also released to the wild.

A shopping spree to Costco brings home all sorts of much needed food.

Dinner is salmon, edamame, and rice.

After dinner I take a 4 mile ride thru Sans Suci.

I pick up Sue at Ronkonkoma Station at 9:37.  Sue reports that Peggy is feeling a little better.  She had a blood transfusion, and today managed to east some chicken, vegetables, and a contraband chocolate donut and cup of tea from Dunkin Donuts.
