Smile Cruisingdad is published Again

Sunday; my brother and I had gone to look at an inflatable a fellow had for sale. When I returned home I noticed the new issue of Lats and Atts. It had been lying around the house for several days; I seem to have lost some of my enthusiasm for this publication and hadnít looked at it yet, any way this afternoon I decided to have a look. Thumbing through the pages and not finding much of interest, I was almost ready to put the rag down when close to the back I spied an article by Cruisingdad . Well as a loyal SailNetter I had to read it. Cdís story of a large mythical fish and taking his boy fishing brought back memories of my own youth.
CD my hat is off to you, the skilful way you magically kept from catching that large fish you knew was there is truly amazing. Then with true genius you baited your young son into begging you for a chance at his turn at glory. As every fisherman knows, the battle between fish and fishermen is much more than just catching fish. To know, victory and defeat, the thrill of the hunt, is something we all must learn. The teaching you passed on to your son, to achieve victory where others have failed will inspire him to greatness. I even enjoyed the tack full way you tempted him to veer off his chosen path, but your young son true to his heritage stuck to his guns and the lesson was learned. Again, I take my hat off to you Sir.


Ken

Ken,

Thank you very, very much for the very kind words. I have been absent this weekend from the forum and did not even know the magazine came in until Last night.

Thanks again for the very nice thoughts. I will show them to my wife. It starts off a Monday morning with a smile!!!

See ya around,

- CD

PS I guess that pesky Oscar has plagued you too? (smile).

My 15 year old read it in the car on our way back from the boat yesterday. He was laughing out loud. I asked him what he was reading and he said a story by cruising Dad...other than what he read out to me about a fish "having trouble breathing" I haven't read it yet.
