Thanks so much both of you. I was a little sheepish about putting it out there. I'm happy that you like it. Still pondering email vs post vs reading it to him but am leaning towards email. It will be after our fishing day at any rate.

Bob, the fishing is on for Saturday, 5.45 am. I had given up on him getting in touch so today's email was a bit of a surprise. Saturday will be one of levity. I want to enjoy the day. I know I'll get my butt kicked at fishing though. I like what you say about not getting lost or caught up in the CSA. It's not the same scenario, but my brother, while he was alive battling a neuromuscular disease that ultimately took his life, hated being called brave. "it's just my life" he'd say.

CdnDW please use whatever bits you like.
