    Every day, we are surrounded in some way by the leaders of various organizations, clubs, entities and even countries, and we may not even think about it. There are leaders everywhere, from your church's pastor, to your school's principal, or even your boss. Leaders are a necessary part of our lives, and without their presence or guidance, our society would descend into chaos and mad uncertainty.

  • Be careful - ‘Dumb Thumb...

    Fished Willisburg last Sunday and ended up catching something … not a fish … from John!
    John exhibited symptoms early on but didn’t pay a lot of attention to it. Then, as the day wore on, he got worse.
    About halfway through the tournament, I came down with a mild case!
    No, it wasn’t a heat stroke or anything like that. Heck, that would’ve been easier to take. The affliction we came down with was “Dumb Thumb Syndrome!”
