As I was mowing grass

I saw the radiant sunlight beaming across the river. I stopped mowing to go take a picture and as I got closer saw this kind elderly gentleman fly fishing. He graciously agreed to let me take his picture with the sunset as the backdrop. He told me he’d sure like to have a copy of the pic and we exchanged phone numbers.

We continued to talk and I learned he joined the Air Force when was 18 years old, served 26 years and has been married for 61 years. He turned a beautiful photo into a majestic memory. Soldier, we salute you sir! Thank you for your service! ????

Wonderful story. I guess fly fishing is a sport. You got an awesome back yard!
