Just some catching up to do.  I know it has been a while since I last posted here, but there have been a couple of reasons why.
In March, I was diagnosed with epilepsy and couldn't drive for 90 days, so no fishing for me. I am on medicine now and all was going fine until I went to do some aluminum can collecting that we use the money for graduation gifts for the grandkids.  Well, some teenagers asked where I took the cans for recycling, and I hit the front brake a little too hard and did a head dive over the handlebars.  Luckily, I was wearing my helmet and 3 of the young ladies jumped off the curb and helped me get up and make sure I was ok.  I thanked them.  There are good teens out there.  I did tear two muscles and surgery on the 18th to repair, so more time for no fishing and maybe not even deer camp this year.
Getting old is hell!!  LOL! 
And that is it for now.  G57, quit laughing!!

Chin up.  The fish will wait.  Heal up first.

Darn good to hear from you Tom.  Like they said good thing you had the helmet on.  Mind what the Drs. say and follow their directions and you will be fine.  Just think of how each fish you would have caught will be that much bigger now when you do catch them.

Glad to hear you'll be healing up GT. I am willing to bet there'll be a sheepshead calling your name in the not too distant future!  :happy1:
