First want to thank you all for your kind words of support in both comments and emails.I also want to let you know that the boys are holding up well. They have a tremendous bond which I am so thankful for and it is helping them now.
Also want you to know that Ed was a prolific and well known writer in his field which was nature, the environment and of course fishing. He published many books and articles throughout his career.You'll have to bear with me while I post a few links in days to come that if interested I think you will find fun and amusing. Such a wonderful writer and creative thinker. By the way he loved my blog and encouraged me in my endeavor. Just wish I could write like him.
And on a happier note Troy Robinson aka "waterboy" qualifed for the state swimming championships which take place this weekend in Hood River Oregon. Bravo Troy. Pretty heady stuff for a sophmore. k
