NOTE – Some of you arrived here today expecting the regular art feature, but due to circumstances beyond my control, things are a bit out of synch this week. Hope you enjoy the information provided today though!
NOTE NOTE – I have already made inquiries for my speaking slot at 11am, as to getting hooked up to a fast internet connection so that I can YouTube live – that lecture. In Texas, we sometimes say, “You gotta’ just take the bull by the horns!” That has extra meaning in this instance. Playing this scenario out; I’ll probably have to record and broadcast this later on.
NOTE NOTE NOTE- Do you ever wonder why it is that every single North Texas fly fishing event is scheduled for the same days of the same weekend? After two years of this, and the addition of another event, the whole thing is becoming downright ridiculous in my humble opinion. Intelligent folks would say this isn’t for the best of the community.
