"a Christmas Story"

T'was the Night before Christmas and all though the house not a creature was stiring, not even a mouse... then the tyer's lovely wife ,with a smile on her face, and a delight in her walk Said, "isn't time we go buy a tree", and with a twinkle in his eye, and grin on his mouth he said" why buy one when we have this one".... she took delight in his words, laughted that Christmas laugh, and smashed him over the head with the biggest ,meanest , frying pan in Santa's House......MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL

That is great. Probably make a great ornament for the tree the husband can pick up on the way home from the emergency room.

Happy Holidays,

John.....Luv it!

These ideas are endless?

Who would, but you, would think about using your flounder fly and than camouflaging it with sea weed. That's going to be a killer techneque on the flats this year.
