Thanks and travels

I want to thank the group at www.wired2fish.com for inviting me to Bloomington/Normal, Ill., last week. Had a good visit with them and then the opportunity to speak at a meeting of the B.A.S.S. Federation Nation with some of The Bass Federation guys, as well. Wired2Fish then wrote a great article about what I'm trying to accomplish at this point in life.

After that, I went on over to St Louis to attend a Hall of Fame function for my old school — Ritenour High School. Several outstanding individuals were inducted into the Ritenour Hall of Fame that night but I was there for the honor being given to an entire family — the Grubbs Family.

I grew up with several of the Grubbs brothers and cousins in the '50s, and they single-handedly brought the sport of wrestling to high schools in Missouri. There were about 20 kids in the whole family and rumor has it that one time ... one of them was actually defeated in a wrestling match. But that was only a rumor.
