It's cold in Illinois these days, and it's going to get a lot colder before we get around to the warm weather again. My mom sent some pics to me from when Jim and I visited them in Panama City Beach, and I had to share as a way to beat the winter blues. The first one is me and Jim down by the beach, and the second is me on a deep sea fishing boat. Didn't catch much this time around, but still had a good time. I can still remember my deep sea outing before this one. I caught something like eight fish. By the end of the six hour trip, I was grubby with sweat, fish slime, squid skin, and fish bait. There's a part of me that is still a little boy and likes to be dirty!
