If anyone has been following the past week on FB - between one of his friends, me and him... it's been a bumpy ride. But this is what I am talking about when I say family love.

The brown is just the background color I put on there so it would show the white piping on the edges lol Right now I've gone from this to thinking I will just pick the tan-ish beige crinkled color and be done with it - with white piping lol I have the samples until Wed - so anything could happen.

The barge from which the fireworks were launched were set up right out our back door. So we sat on the porch with friends we invited over and watched fireworks the evening of Independence Day. No Incidents.

Can't off the boat in the marina - against the rules - but someday I will bust out the fishing pole and try my hand at it. (I hate fishing though - it upsets me to hurt and kill fish even if I throw them back. Poor bebes!)

I will fish, hunt or what ever for food. Will NOT do it for "sport" AKA "fun".
I see no "fun" in harassing fish for my own amusement. :-/

Yep that's me too - but then I often catch too many things I can't eat - and have to torture it off the hook before I ever catch anything I can. This is why I mostly just go to the fresh fish market. lol
