Ditto as well, Sam, yet I'm unclear of the apparent certainties that were factored into the decision process, other than to say, a prize earned, is a prize saved--measuredly, Aloha!

Delightful rhymes with a whimsical glance in vivid images William. A perfect picture of the fishing experience - "the wait, the catch godsends." Congratulations on your first place win! Aloha! Thanksgiving blessings.
