I am still alive, and yes the contests are a go. I am shocked at the votes for the blanks, but I'm excited to build on whatever you all pick.
I am still intermittently fishing, though nothing worth blogging about really. I think the past three weeks worth of fishing could be condensed into one, crappy, short paragraph. I'll throw something together with some eye-catching photos...keep the masses appeased.
Thank you to all my new followers, there have been quite a few join in the past month or two. It may seem like a mundane little button, and even a mundane feature of Blogger, but it gives me a picture of the fact that people really do read this blog, and--for some reason--enjoy it. So, thank you for following!!
Last but not least, my son was born on July 1st and tipped the scales at 7lbs 6oz and stretching to a respectable 18.5". If he were a Brown, he would have made my month! Instead...he blew my year out of the water. Amazing little fella'. I've spent more time changing diapers than rod building, and more time rocking/swaddling/whatevering than I have fishing. When I read Gierach, it's to him. And when I tell fishing stories--again, they are to him. Eventually I'll have him in rubber pants and I'll commence the blogging. ...well, maybe even before that.
Keep readin'. I'll keep writin'.
