One Brother's Admiration

I’m lucky to have the friends I am close to. They keep me humble and grounded.

I’m blessed to have the family I have.

They are always there and are constant reminders that I belong to something greater. My brother in particular is the best brother in the world as far as I am concerned. I am truly proud to be his brother. Since the day I was made an uncle by he and his wife, I couldn’t wait for this particular day to arrive, Guy Weekend. It was time to introduce my nephew Joe (who is 4 years old) to the world of trout fishing. I know my father was hauling my brother and me around on fishing trips when we were Joe’s age and we both turned out just fine, so nothing wrong with getting Joe started early. So with a truck load of groceries and fishing gear, we headed up to the cabin for a weekend of burger grilling, Chocolate Yoo-Hoo drinking and trout fishing fun.

There is no better job than being an uncle. And to think that in a couple of years I get to do it again with Joe’s younger brother Jack.

There is also no greater joy than watching the fire being lit in the next generation of trout fishermen.
