Boot,
Mr Watts story is a excellent read. Thanks for sharing that.

With your writing talents, you should seriously consider entering this contest sometime in the future.

Also Colten Braybrooks got a shout out as one of the top ten, apparently Colten is from Seattle

“Osprey, the Fisherman” by Colten Braybrooks of Seattle, Washington

Having a big love for Osprey I would love to see this work also....
