Still Crazy After All These Years

For the past 17 or 18 years, we've fished together, laughed, cried, fought, made up, told secrets and gone on to fish again. I hate to admit it, but she's a better fisherwoman than I am.....on certain days, a good day, on a streamers and some dry flies. However, there are days, on a dry fly, a hopper, I can whoop her buns.

Today on the Snake was a golden day on the river. One of those days you remember in the deepest, darkest part of winter! Sure we caught fish, and plenty of them. But it's more than that. It's being out in this magnificent creation with wildlife, great company and lots of laughs. The fish are just the bonus.

Love you, Edie. And John, you are the best, very best, of guides and boatmen. Great to have you here showing us yankee neophytes how it's really done, during your New Zealand winter.

To be continued.

So glad you are spending time with such good friends. Those are the things that matter in the long run.

Yes, besides our relationship with Christ, those long-term relationships are so important, and often show us how far we've come and also how far we have to go.

I thank God for so many good friends, as well as family....

I enlarged the photo and was so happy to see two pretty women! It seems women in our society today are trying to not be pretty . Thanks for sharing this photo. You both look so tanned and healthy too!

It does look like a wonderful time you're having, with friends and nature. Good for you!

W - I am so there with you in spirit, including the demure earrings.

M, now that Posh Spice is in town, we need to carry the banner for demure more than ever. We can't let it become an endangered word!

and, D, thank you for your kind words!
