  •  My fishing experiences as a youth were either alone or with the gang that made up Ford’s Woods. What I learned about fishing came from the same sources.

    I can remember as a youth the day that I was bit by the “bass” bug. Even though I had never been to the lake, the levee was known to be full of largemouth. And even though it was still in my small town, for a kid who either walked or rode his bicycle everywhere, it was a little further away than I was use to going.

    Lighthouse Word Church – Health and wellness series

  • The cold weather was late getting here this year. Unseasonable warm weather was an understatement for December and early January has provided a long runway for the winter that is now in flight. This week stands to be the coldest of the season but I’m already thinking I’m only seven weeks away from March. I still find myself saying “I wish spring would hurry and get here,” but the older I get the less likely I am to wish my days away. It’s been an odd deer season. I could write a book on patience.
