1974_001c

Yes, most of my blogs lately have been about our Take ‘Em Fishing campaign.  I am going to continue that today with a little different twist. . . . An important part of the campaign is getting long-time, avid anglers to take someone fishing.  Most of us got started fishing because someone took us.  For most it was a dad, brother, sister, granddad, grandmother, uncle, cousin, some family member, but it also could have been a friend or acquaintance.  The …

“Hi, Puppy!”

P3300112ct

My standard greeting for a new dog I encounter is to hold out my hand and say, “Hi, Puppy!”  I do not know if the dogs like that greeting or not.  At least I have not been bitten yet.
