Transform Household Spaces Into Cozy Retreats

Cool weather often drives people to spend more hours indoors than they do during the warmer months. Autumn is a time to winterize gardens, put away lawn furniture and prepare for the holiday season. Autumn also provides the perfect opportunity to begin home interior projects.

Fishing Report

Recently I was both humbled and honored to be invited to fish a local tournament with someone that I introduced to the sport of bass fishing when he was 12 years old. He's continued to fish, has his own boat, and is now 25 years old. We've never lost contact and have occasionally fished together over the years. The difference this time is that we'll be on his boat, and he'll be the one making all the decisions. It's going to be nice having someone else at the controls for a change and truly relaxing ...
