Louise surprised me with a fantastic birthday extended weekend in Watercolor Florida. We stayed at the Water Color Inn. Friday and Saturday brought fly fishing on local inter-coastal estuaries where Lazarus and I caught many spotted sea trout.

Moriah Jayne Peters

Well, my lovely daughter has graduated from high school this week. She has also been accepted to attend a very good university in their medical program. I am very proud of her. Be persistent, work hard, and keep your eyes on that prize Moriah, and you can do it!
