Walleyedan: Fishing for a bear
Happy Memorial Day weekend! Thank you to all service people who gave the ultimate sacrifice for us in the U.S.A. I looks like it might be a moist stretch of weather we are going to encounter over the next number of days, but let's hope that it's not a total wash-out! But whatever...
