    Happy Birthday, Jim. Don't get too feeble before I get a chance to come back & meet you this summer. Retirement is wonderful . . . no freeking boss to tell me I can't go when & where I want. God Bless & may you have many more.

    3/7/35, best wishes to you from 7/27/38. Looks like we'll have at least one more spring to hear red winged blackbirds singing in the reeds. Enjoy.

    I don't really drink beer. One beer is almost fine but the second one tastes bad and the third one I usually throw away because it tastes like shit. I'll stick to hard stuff.

    There are a few people on here I would like to meet up with. You are one of them, but coming to Oregon isn't in the cards. I have met a lot of people from this site and have fished with a bunch when I lived in Washington. I had a good time with all. And there are some power drinkers out there.

    Happy Birthday, Jim. You are an inspiration. After surviving cancer, heart attack, and quintuple bypass I am confident I'll make it to enjoy fishing as long as you have. Fish on!

    My dad was an old man when he was my age. I don't feel any different now that I did when I was 64. I'm just a bit slower than when I was when I retired. A few more aches and pains. my get up and go has slowed down. But other than what was said I feel good for an Old Man.
