    I wasn't sure where to post this but I just wanted to share with my "extended family" that today is my birthday. I've been roaming this earth now for 40yrs (sounds kinda Biblical if you ask me ; ) and I've been very blessed along the way.

    At first I wasn't going to post this because I felt funny announcing my own b-day but soon realized that I talk to you folks more than I talk to my own family ........ not saying anything would be silly. So basically I wanted to share my day with you guys, I wouldn't want it any other way : )

    Today its raining so I'm just gonna sit around and ask my wife to get me things all day....hey it's my day, LOL. I tried really hard to break my pb ( #20 blue ) before I hit the big 40 but it just didn't work out that way. But hey that's cool I've got a clean slate now and 364 more days to give er hell.

    I did get a cast net and a lot of hooks, sinkers, swivels...the works. I even got a super dooper spot light for fishing/camping. So now I'm gonna be snelling my brains out today, like B-George does, snell, tag and bag ; )

    I haven't been here long but it sure feels like it, and that's a good thing. Thank you all for always sharing your ideas , stories, and pics, and most of all for putting up with me ; )

    Happy Birthday. Glad to see you celebrate them. At least you remember when yours is. That is "a good thing" as Martha Stewart would say.

    Can't let this pass on your birthday Jim. Did you happen to notice the well wishes from "OL MAN". I am at a loss for words. I always imagined him as the droll elf, and there he is as the honcho himself. It is nice to know the Holiday Spirit still persists in the hearts of some men. Amen.

    John.

    Happy B day man. I'm 25 and 40 sounds a long way off, but I know it will happen in a flash. Hope I'm still fishing then!

    I just wanted to stop in and personally thank everyone for the kind birthday wishes.

    I had a great day of nothing but snelling hooks and listening to the rain come down... I've been praying for the rain and I got it for my birthday, ( thank you Lord ).
    Heck I was even out there in the cold rain practicing my net in the yard. Anyway, again, thanks for the great replies ; )
