Life off the water through the eyes of a catfisherman. Sunrise yesterday started as I parked my car under the catalpa tree at work. Noticed it was starting to bloom on the south side then by the end of the day it had awesome white blossoms all over. Today I had to go to the Columbia area with dad and the sunrise brought snapping turtles attempting to cross interstate 70. Half way into the trip and back it was snapper road kill everywhere. Easily saw over a dozen and many looked like armadillos on their backs with legs sticking out. Such is the day in the eyes of catfisherman, catalpas and turtles all over the place. Its a beautiful world out there, guess our eyes see what our passion dictates. Nows the time to start looking for prospective catalpa trees, with perhaps some turtle soup as a bonus.
