Priorities

Post by west_jay » Sun Mar 12, 2017 12:30 pm

[report]I've tried not to post anything non-fishing related, because I've heard this place isn't what it used to be, again.

2017 sucks already.

Put my best friend down two weeks ago, my youngest brother unexpectantly passed last week, and Trump is still prez.?

Anyhow, say Goodnight, sweet prince.

Sorry to read that. As Will Rogers said, "If there are no dogs in heaven, when I die I want to go where they went." They just don't live long enough.

Sorry to hear, WestJay. We will try to fill that void by doing some fishing later in the year.

Very Sorry to hear, thats a tough span right there-I keep telling myself at least I am lucky enough to see mine get old but not looking forward to that day.
Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need-a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.

Rick - best to you and your family, man. I'm so sorry. That's a heap of loss and heartache all at once. Hang in there.

In the spirit of this place,

I offer you,

Hope.
