Profuse Apologies and Thanks
To all who patiently (or NOT!) waited the interminable horrendous five days while Indigo Insights was being "tweaked". Yeah, right. Like a MOAB tweaks! And very special thanks to "The Job" of North State Blogs, if not the entire internet: Tony of Trojan Horseshoes. The Gift of Patience will serve him well in his new adventure into fatherhood. Followers of this shabby page should know that there would be one less North State Blog if not for him. Maybe I can blame my obtuseness on faulty vision; the template appeared to me like hieroglyphics on the wall of an Eqyptian tomb. Actually, Eqyptian tomb scratchings are clearer than Blogger's scratchings! I just about lost it, but Tony persevered. At one point last night before everything "magically" appeared as it should be, I told a friend I was getting into my car and driving to Camp LeJeune and crashing through the main gate, so the Marine guards would shoot me and get me out of my misery!!! (I love drama. Don't you?)

But back to Blog World. Here's a fishing story to welcome Ocean Guy to NSB. OK. So it's a Louisiana fishing story. Make the leap, Ocean Guy.
