Sharkathon 2009

This weekend, Leon & pals are going to Padre Island for the annual shark fishing tournament called Sharkathon.

In addition to prizes for the top three (3) sharks caught in the tournament, there's a $10,000 prize for catching one 10 feet or longer.

Maybe that money can be used to pay the surgeon to re-attach hands and feet...

Catching Up

Be patient, my two dozen readers.

I've been busier'n a one-legged man in a butt-kickin' contest!

Now that my short break is over and I'm about to get caught up (hahaha), I should be able to get back to posting regularly.

High school buddy and his son came to Texas this weekend. We spent a couple of days/nights on the beach with Leon and caught a few sharks.

The first of the bunch was this 6-footer:
