Weekend Fishing

With a bit of a mad week at work, it was nice to have a long weekend. I managed to spend some time this weekend fishing with the kids and it was great fun. I think Katie’s fish may have been bigger than Seth’s.

There was another guy on the pier with us pulling in numerous 10-15lb carp and catfish which was great to watch. I had no idea there was carp in Crabtree, never mind being able to catch fish that big from the pier.

Fishing on Little River Lake

Great day fishing on Little River Lake today. Absolutely perfect weather for it. There were four of us, two in each boat. The losers had to buy lunch. We lost. But then, I’d happily buy twice the money to eat at American Hero, so I’m not sure who really lost there. All the same, next time we will win and have Shawn and Seth buy us lunch.

Catfish were not counted toward the team catch.

Seth’s contribution to his team. “He’ll be fine”, said Seth, “Look, he’s swimming away. Oh, look he’s showing us his belly, isn’t that cute”.

Oxygen – New album from Lincoln Brewster

Oxygen - Lincoln BrewsterA new album from Lincoln Brewster released yesterday called Oxygen.  I’ve had the chance to listen to a pre-release version of it for a few weeks now (thanks Shannon!). It’s pretty high energy from beginning to end, with plenty of Brewster’s signature guitar licks.

It’s a polished release and I like all the songs, but there’s a couple of songs that I really like on the album.

The first one is There Is Power. This is definitely one I plan on using at STORYCHURCH sometime.

He does a really good version of Worship Central’s Let It Be Known, swapping out the keys parts for guitars. I still would rather have the original version though.

Love Sinking Ships.  Great melody. Great message. I don’t know if it would work congregationally for us, but I like the song personally.

Whole Again (Come Alive) is just a beautiful song. Yes, I said beautiful. I can’t think of another word to describe it. It makes me want to learn piano and sing my heart out.
