I’m back from
We’re also in our new house. We’d been renting one on Guntersville but we decided to buy one. That’s really everyone’s dream, and we want to be a part of it. I like it as much or more for the family as I do for myself. They don’t get the publicity and recognition — I’m talking about all the anglers’ families — that they deserve. They earned it with their hard work and tears, at least in my case.
The best part about this one is that it’s right down the street from where we used to live. Everything’s the same except for our new home. The kids are in the same school, and we’re all in a community we know and call home. The only thing that’s a little different, something I didn’t think through, was my new honey-do list.
I’ve been working on that darn thing since I got home, I mean working hard. It’s getting a little shorter but I have a feeling it’ll start growing again when I go to
And speaking of
It’s not just me, though. Mark Zona, Tommy Sanders, Jerry McKinnis, several Elite pros and a number of other B.A.S.S. people will be there. There’ll be a silent auction and a Fish with a Pro opportunity, too. If you can participate, we’d love to see you there. Most important of all, at least to me, there’ll be a dinner provided by Catfish John’s. Check it all out at www.beaverlakeboaters.net.
Early on I said that the one thing we wanted to do was make a difference to kids. If we can do that, everything will be a success; if we fail at that, not so much. It’s not just that it helps the future of fishing, although that’s important. There’s more to it than that. It helps the future of everyone, regardless of what they do for a hobby or how they earn their living.
We’ll talk again next week. I need to go. Honey-do lists and dandelions never stop growing.
