Merry Christmas, Jimmy, and ev'ryone else also too!

I'll be driving to Lafayette, Louisiana to finish about a day's worth of work on this past summer's project there. Hopefully I'll return Tuesday or Wednesday and be ready to get into Christmas with the family until flying out to Salt Lake City the day after Christmas for a few warranty items to take care of.

I hope all y'all have a wonderful holiday season with lots of love and fun being had with your families and friends. Trout fishing brings us together on this board, but I believe our God created us all as brethren from the beginning and we should love one another as such.

May God bless everyone during this season that commemorates the arrival of His Son into this world to redeem all men to himself, and may his blessings continue to rain down upon us all during the coming year.

Falcons game at 1:00 on Christmas Eve Day and then a traditional Puerto Rican holiday dinner with the family (roast pork, rice & beans, pastelas, etc) cooked by my smoking hot trophy wife.

Default Merry Christmas from Glad & Marty

Blessings to all during this Christmas season.
We're blessed beyond measure in every aspect of life.
Regardless of circumstances, we have the Advent words of Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace
May we reflect on these things as we celebrate the birth of Jesus in our world and our hearts.


This sweet grandchild of ours is a true miracle who graced our lives 2+ years ago. I love her contemplative look at this snow globe. She will help our Christmas be a special one as she begins to understand the excitement and anticipation as she discovers what this is all about.

Marty and I've had some challenging months ~ We came home from vacation in early September to find $$$$ damage to our home from Hurricane Irma. It also seems another storm was brewing in our absence; our son and his wife were both diagnosed with cancer while we were away. It's been pretty tough for them with a 2-year old (their in early 40's!) but we've enjoyed having Katherine here more to help out. Thankfully, they each have a positive prognosis. Peter is recovering from two surgeries (kidney cancer) and Karen (breast cancer) is undergoing chemo with surgery in the Spring.

They seem to be managing with a strong faith and a strong support community.

So, once again, I'm reminded that our human condition is often challenging, but our God is always loving and good.



On another topic ~ Fern Valley is growing and we're most grateful for our loyal anglers and friends. Merry Christmas from Glad & Marty, Harold, Belle, and Meadow
