As promised so long ago, I'm finally getting my act together on this blog of mine!!

So back in the good old days, my other half, Jimmy, and his fishing partner, Bozo (I only knew him by that nickname), were out fishing for yellowtail snapper.

This will be a work in progress so have patience. I'll get there!
