Bonnie and Clyde Bum

OHHHH YAAAAAA, we’re back friends! Sorry for the hiatus, we were stuck in hibernation mode and well our bosses were on us like a smallie on a top water. But, we are back and back for good. A lot has happened since last fall. So, instead of catching you up, we’re just gonna dive right…

A Reel Good Fishing Partner…

A fishing partner is a good find. A good fishing partner is hard to come by. A real good fishing partner is rare.  You may think you know you’re friends and family. But, it isn’t until you are stranded in the wilderness with a tornado at your back or a bear at the point or…

Never settle for less. Less than you deserve. Less than your worth. Less than extraordinary. But, it sure is easier said than done, isn’t it? We settle all the time.
