Well folks, my day started off really sad this morning, after reading this story which I'd heard about on Tuesday after finally Google-ing it. I was so moved by all of this that I wrote about Taylor on my other blogs too, because I want more people to read about this amazing young woman who could have been anyone's daughter, sister, or friend. Then I sent a note to Twitter as well, for the same reasons.
If you get a chance, go and visit Taylor's Facebook page too. There's lots in there to show what a cool and talented girl she was. I'm man enough to say right here, that I cried for this young lady as I read some of her stuff and where she was going with her life. :-(
Destined to be a super role model, now only an aching memory for many of us. Thank God this sweet and gifted lady, left some of her great music for us all to enjoy...
This is a nice shot from her picture section on Facebook, taken by James Dean and borrowed here to share with you to-day.
Here's a link to the very sad story from Canada dot com...
Tragedy strikes Cape Breton...
Although you were taken from us far to early, God has you now Taylor. You are in real good hands...
R.I.P. Taylor Mitchell, we all miss you...

Some fall biking...
To try and keep myself in at least some kind of shape, I took my old Adventure-Cycle slash Life extender unit, out for a spin the other day. It always takes me about five or six minutes with the wind in my face, and my bod leaned over in stroke mode, legs pumping, before my little brain says, like, Why aren't you biking every day, bonehead? :-) This just feels SO GOOD!
Anyway, first stop, leaf city...
Next up, a little wheelin' through a little rougher stretch of "deer trail" in here dodging Kama-kazi Squirrels and flocks of squawking Starlings to steer towards, finally, the river...
...where I spotted this little cutie pie. Got to work with him for a few moments too. :-)
... and then this neat little "Fall-Bloomer" type of cool, tall bush, which I have No clue as to what it may be, appeared right there too. It looked real Pretty though! :-)
And then, a quiet little semi-secluded, future fishin' spot, reveals itself to my wondering eyes. Hmmmm. Inflowing creek emptying in the Ottawa. Hmmmm.
...a little further on, and then, nothing... the end of the line.
I'll tell ya, it sure felt Super to get my little ol' self outside again crankin' those sprockets once more for a few healthy, and very fresh hours. Also it's great to see a few of the neat things that are always goin' on out here, all around us, too.
I hope most of You are doing Your part in keeping healthy in body and mind as well. It ain't easy all the time, but most certainly well worth it! Get Outdoors! :-)

As a kind of Birthday present for me this year, I was fortunate enough to spend some time on the Ottawa River this past week-end with my good friends Jack and Art. We caught quite a few fish and really had a great ol' time. :-)
Now, although I've been sworn to secrecy as to just where we were actually fishing, I Can say that we were a few miles downstream from the Petrie Island area. :-)
To start things off, my Trout fishing buddy Art, added to his species count with this decent sized wet kitty that fell all over his spinner rig.
This is the average size of most of the Walleyes we caught.
Of course, the Captain of this awesome Lund fishing boat, Walleye Jack, caught this sweet, fat hog, to show us all, just how it's done. :-) Congrats on such a fine Walleye there Jackman!
This big ol' river is really a great place for catching a variety of fish. Check out this big eyed boy that you don't see in too many places.
A Mooneye Cool or what, eh? :-) Here's a link to a neat website where Rolf, from Alberta, tells us all we need to know about this very neat, Trout-like fish.Rolf's Flies
We moved around some in the wind and the current and before we knew it, we had tapped into the Sauger population too. Once more, my man Jack shows us that he knows what he's doing out there, eh?
Here's a shot of Jack's fishin' buddy Guy, with a nice catch that he and Joe put together on Sunday. Sweet!
All in all, the fishing was real good and spending time on the water with a few friends is pretty hard to beat as well. There's no life like it! :-)
Thanx again Walleye Jack, for making me part of your Outdoorsy adventures! :-)
The fillets I took home with me were some delicious and well appreciated my friends.
I truly did have a Happy Birthday! :-) LarryB
