Happy Anniversary to Wifey and I(36 years)!! 5 4 21

Wifey and I celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary with a fun and productive crabbing trip to one of our favorite areas!!Had great time,winds were not the most cooperative,causing us to seriously take our sweet time getting to where we intended to soak some crab nets and possibly toss a few fine Shakers at whatever might be hanging around.Ended up catching 41 small to medium but very fat crabs and saw a few fine waterfowl in the process!Last year,crabbing exact same spot,we nabbed almost twice the number of crabs and Wifey did her typical exemplary job boiling these crabs and tossed in some home-grown red potatoes,yummy!!!Got Mother's Day crawfish boil set for this Sunday and might even take older son and Grandson on crawfish trip this Ffriday,though think better use of our time this Friday might be return to Trestles,given the predicted wind conditions this Friday!!Always fun spending quality time in outdoors with family and think ole Lady P bout to bless plenty of us with fine specks,reds,flounders and bass,in certain areas!!!Got home in time to tackle fun job of repacking trailer bearings.Gent who owns Pearson Trailer in Kenner strongly suggested annual repacking of trailer bearings and I did detect slight amount of water on right side bearings and more on left side so timely maintenance NO DOUBT just saved me plenty headaches and my trailer an ole one but plenty serviceable.I have the Bearing Buddies and think issue I am having is that left side of axle has very slight bit of corrosion and ultimate fix would be axle replacement!I did clean up corrosion on both sides and will make sure to repack bearings next April/May.

CCAguns Totally agree. Was planning crawfish trip this Fr with the two AJ’s but think better use of time would be Trestles trip. Let’s coordinate soon possibly next week be glad to jump aboard Miss Kitti🐠🎣🦀🦞
