    Im thankful that miserable year is over.
    You know you guys were thinking it too

    More blessings than I can count. Except for the health issue facing my lovely bride, and she is lovely, my problems are few. I have more than I ever imagined I would and would probably do well to rid myself of half of it. Good job, working with good people, making a positive difference to those we serve. I am truly blessed.

    Of my family, myself and our remaining families. Almost lost my dad this spring, her mom this fall. All are doing well now and everything is under control.
    I lost 35 lbs and aim to take another 20 off this year.

    My son.

    He has turned into a fine young man. His new school suits his learning style much better and he is exceling in most subjects. His assocation with Boy Scouting has provided he and I a great amount of time together (I'm an assistant Scoutmaster) doing many of things we have raised him to love. He is a good shot and confident when handling firearms, always safe and becoming quite handsome.
    Business was up and down again fairly steady good work, but no large projects. Until there is more lending I'm afraid it will continue to be like this. The rentals are fine, some getting old, but not in need of remodel. My high risk investments did very well this year with the stock market instability.
    My wife continues in her outdoor recreation career, teaching skiing in the winter and aquatics director at a Scout Camp in the summer. We managed some great travel, and had some killer vacation activities.

    So, we're still OK.
    Strap me in, tie me down and roll me a bone, I'm getting on an airplane and I'm flying home...

    If a young man will give Boy Scouts a chance, nothing but good comes from it. Encourage him to stick with it and earn his Eagle. Once and Eagle, always an Eagle. Both my boys earned theirs and they have already realized the benefit of doing so. When he gets there, if he needs a good Eagle project, let me know.

    Tanner is growing up to be a smart, courteous and kind little man. He's looking forward to spending more time in the woods and water with his old man.

    Chase is growing like a weed. A very chubby little weed and already has a great personality...

    Glad to still have my best friend, Sammy. Our birthdays are one week apart (his 1/04, mine 1/11). We shot the squirrels, and the ducks, and the quail at an early age. Brillo is still with us. Best fisherman ever!!!

    Sammy and I always talk on our birthday week. His sayin' is, that we will take every one we can get! We've all caught trouts together. We lost our bud Harve this past year. Hit us hard.

    Lookin' forward to '12. Sammy don't talk much. Brillo can't shut the trap!!!

    Here's Harve on our last trip. He's in the prime seat just out of Tybee Island chunking a live skrimp up against an oyster bar aboard the "Keeper".


    Sayin... :driver

    Does it make me shallow and materialistic if I say I'm thankful for the G. Loomis rod and Abu Revo Premier reel I found laying on the bank at a lake I was fishing yesterday morning? :angel

    I think I've been through Milton, but don't know anything about the gene pool there. I am, however, from northeast Alabama, so I'm quite familiar with the concept!
