Looking at the blogs I had a "I can do this moment." The rest is history as they say.
Much later, I added a second blog, Troutbirder II to be a catchall for book and movie reviews, a little history, some bad jokes, the occasional rant, and other odds and ends. And with this I submit my 500th post.
My original goal was to provide a weekly update, to my far away son, of his father's outdoor activities. Later, when I also discovered this "hobby" was a great way to meet fun and interesting people, that goal broadened to include stories (mostly true) that might bring a smile to their faces. I hope I've succeeded.
