My World Tuesday Season # 2 Episode # 44

This is my posting for the My World Meme. It is hosted by Klaus, Sandy, Wren,  Sylvia and myself. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive. Click to visit other sites.

After 20  years comes when you no longer worry about the three R's. You then have 45 years to go to work before you get to do your own choice. So I have chosen my retirement work to be as follows. This is the time of year that I get to work at the three F's. 

The first F is Farming. This is the time to reap from the garden and here is some of the bounty. The vegetable garden is producing more then enough for us two.
The second F is for fishing. I had a great day again today with a 13" Crappie and several 12" crappie. I had 30 fish in all and could have kept many more. This 13" one is a Fish Ohio fish, the first of the year for me. You get a pin and an award certificate. I wonder if I will get a bigger one later in the Fall?
The third F is photography. Well, at least it has an F sound. A pair of baby White Tail Deer are using my back yard as a play area. They have been nice to the garden so far.  What a great Summer I am having, may it continue into the Fall. I love when they pose for me, scratch that itch way up there.
Just remember, boys just want to have fun also.

Your 3 F's are great. Nothing like produce fresh from the garden or fish fresh from the water and I love the shot of the deer.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, yes! I do agree with Carver, Tom! Your 3 F's are wonderful as are your photos. And I, too, love the shot of the deer! Hope you have a great week!

Oh I love the three "F's" Tom! And I love this meme you and the other kind bloggers keep together for our enjoyment. I simply love the look of your vegetables. And the wildlife in your garden and, of course the amazing fish - "F"rst of your season. Congratulations. Have a wonderfully "F"un and blessing-"F"illed day. Jo

Lesley said...

Considering your deer visitors, you have quite a nice bounty of fresh veggies.

what an unfortunate name for a fish - crappie!

Philip said...

You can the "F" in photography Tom as in F-stop LoL !! those veggies look Yummy :)

Jenn said...

I think those are 3 great Fs indeed. I hope I'll enjoy mine as much when the time comes. :-) The veggies look great!

Lanny said...

Love the three F's

Rose said...

I do all three 'f's also...though not as much fishing as we used to do. I was raised on a farm, so other than a couple years when we were first married and maybe a year or two when the kids were babies...I have always had a garden. Even if it is just a small one.

And I have loved photography forever...

soulbrush said...

what amarvellous post, you go and then go again!

George said...

Your world sounds like a great world. Your garden (farm) is certainly providing you with plenty of great eating. And while I wish you success with your fishing, I'm really looking forward to more of your foots!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Tom, Love your 3F's..... My favorite is seeing your smiling face ---with all of those fish... You are a SUPER fisherman.

Of course, your 'fotography' is great also... That little Bambi is adorable.

The fresh veggies in your garden are yummy.... You are having a great summer INDEED.

Thanks for sharing your F's.... My 3 F's are Food, FUN, and Fall/Autumn... I'm ready for cooler weather.
Betsy

SandyCarlson said...

I love that deer shot. The veggies and the fish--they look delish! Great post.

CaptainRunner said...

Tomatoes! Those were a bit pricey here in our country nowadays.

You captured a lot of fish, so how would you prepare it for a meal? Fried or something?

Fotography. That's the only F that I have done among your 3Fs :)

BTW, no, I don't end up with a running related gift, I end up with a gadget-related gift :)

Thomas and Shilpy said...

The 3 "F"s are interesting, I particularly like your third "F"...Thomas

Tipper said...

I like all 3 of your fs : )

Twisted Fencepost said...

After that little health episode you had awhile back, I am glad to see that you are enjoying your summer, too.
Love the "pose"!

TUDSANI said...

Your 3 F's are great. Nothing like produce fresh from the garden or fish fresh from the water and I love the shot of the deer.
