We spent far too many months in our camper after we sold our home while we looked for our new home but when we are in the mood to go camping again, Wingates is where we will go. You won't find a better place to camp, rest, relax, fish, enjoy nature and make great friends. THANK YOU Jane and Smokey.
Skeeter made the news!
I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner.
I too...k out my wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked,"If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?"
"No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.
"Will you use it to go fishing instead of buying food?" I asked.
"No, I don't waste time fishing," the homeless man said.."I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive."
"Will you spend this on hunting equipment?" I asked.
"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't gone hunting in 20 years!"
"Well," I said, "I'm not going to give you money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a shower and a terrific dinner cooked by my wife."
The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that?
I replied, "Don't worry about that. It's important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up drinking, fishing and hunting." 🤘
Our friend, Angelo "Andy" Koundourakis has been diagnosed with ALS. We are trying to help raise money for his increasing needs, one of which is a wheelchair-accessible van to take to doctor's appointments, etc. Randy and Patricia Ditto, also friends and owners of Sticky Fish, developed these awesome shirts to sell in order to help with this endeaver. Please consider helping in any way you can!
