So glad thatís over!
 
Beyond excited that 2017 is over by far one of the worst years Iíve experienced, felt like anything bad that could of happened did and more.

Seems like it was a pretty crummy year for a lot of people.

Anyone else glad to see it go?

Tough year for sure but we made it through. Looking forward to what will hopefully be a better year in 2018!

After reading all these posts I almost feel like an "odd ball"...

I had a pretty nice year even though still missing my gal...

Started off the year with a few Saltwater fishing shows on the east coast.

Then off with to a nice trip to Cutty, weather was good, company was great and fishing was slow but always fun.

Had a few trips up to the Cape with the Mako, got some nice Stripers & best year for Albies. Learned some new places ....

Headed out Toggin for the first time and have a GREAT TIME. Lost my Tog virginity.

Then went out with Cohen and ended up landing a Tuna..... That was also a first....

Had a blast in my new Basscat fishing boat......Tiaconderoga, Lake George & more. It was an absolute rush.

Did some nice Trout stream fishing at the famous Battenkill with a new Ultra light setup. Had an awesome time. Damn near petted an Osprey. Ya see he got himself a huge Brown trout which he could not lift off the stream..... so.... me being the nice guy that I am.... helped him pick it and and put it in ........ my kreel. That's the part where he got a little pissed. Eat your heart out "McGiver"....

Had another great year with the tree cutting business, I don't know how I did it cause I took more time off this yearn to fish by "lots" and still hit my goal.

So.....with that said, I can't complain.... 2017 was pretty darn good year.

I am looking to make 2108 a banner year. I am already gearing up...
I am planning on only working 3 days a week this year.... gonna try at least. So, if you happen to see a 21' White Mako out at the Cape this year.... it's most likely me. An open invitation to anyone who wishes to join me.

Aside from the usual chronic back issues, I had a good year fishing, a lot of good rounds with my cape golf buddies and two of my three boys have found I think their future life partners. Not a good year for Peg however with her mom having 3 ambulance rides and matching hospital stays, followed by rehab. I'm suffering from a severe case of cabin fing frozen fever however, so 2018 isn't starting well.

Considering we could be wrapping up the 1st year of a Hillary Clinton presidency and we are not I say it was a great year.

Turned 70 as did my wife. Family is healthy for the most part. Enough money to live comfortably. I live on 15 ac in RI with a beautiful house and 1000 sq ft man cave for my boat and equipment and winter in South Carolina.
Nothing to complain about here.:hihi::hihi:

OH and BTW, everything is paid for!

Pretty memorable year for us. Had our first child this year in May. Theres nothing that can compare to it. To say its changed my perspective on life would be a massive understatement. Its pretty damn awesome! We take him everywhere with us. 5 days old was on the boat to block island, just took him to San diego on a surf trip!

It's pretty much the same all around.

Some have good years, some had bad, some had a mix.

This will NEVER change. All that WILL change is whether it's good, bad or mixed for YOU!

Add to that the fact that we're all getting older, so we keep increasing our memory banks of experiences to compare, and the fact that many of us continue to do things that are guaranteed to shorten lifespans, and you have a good S-B mix.

Remember that you have to have good AND bad times so you can appreciate them both on their own.
If you had good luck all the time you would probably end up in the news after you flipped out!

Think "balance", with some good and bad to keep us all grounded.
We've probably all had times when we would recall a good time to help us through a bad.


That's all I've got to say.
