Well Well Well.....Look what the cat drug in....G-Man!!!!!!
You know for 6 glorious years, Thursday nights was the highlight of my blogging week.
At 8:00 PM EST or EDST, I posted my weekly Flash Fiction Friday 55, and invited
any interested party from Blogdom to join the fun. I have met some very talented and
wonderful folks along the way, and I was honored to host the bevy of talent that participated.
These past few months starting in April with my daughter and son-in-law visiting from Poland
where they now reside, I knew that I couldn't devote the time and energy in the upcoming
months to do the Meme justice. So sadly I passed the torch on....
But I will say that I used my extra time to work hard, relax, and do a tremendous amount
of fishing. car sales has been awesome, and I have a freezer full of fish!!! I miss blogging
and maybe this Winter I'll be around a bit more.
One of the very talented people that I've met and you all know is Laura Hegfield from..
Shine the Light Divine. Every year about this time Laura puts together a Gratitude Quilt.
It's offerings from fellow bloggers about what they are really really thankful for at the moment.
With Thanksgiving in a week, she makes you stop and think about what this very
American Holiday is all about. It's not about Black Friday sales, or kicking off the Christmas
shopping frenzy, it's about Family, Friends, and the Joy of Living.
Please visit Laura at...www.shinethelightdivine.com/
Contribute to her quilt please, it doesn't have to be artsy, just honest and heartfelt....Thanks

Here I Am!!!





Hi Everybody...Remember me? Galen Haynes aka...G-Man!!
It has been a very busy Summer this year at work.
In spite of all the negative publicity the auto industry has been getting, our sales has
been booming! Needless to say we have been jammin...
With little time left for personal recreation, most of my spare moments have been
used persuing my favorite pastime...FISHING!
Reese, myself, and my life long fishing buddy Jim Shephard, have been fishing the
bountiful Saginaw Bay. From junk-fish to the fabulous Walleye (Sander Vitreus),
we have had a fantastic time reeling them in.
I miss all of my blogger pals, but I don't miss the deadlines and time consuming blogging
obligations. I suspect that when the foul weather returns, I'll return (somewhat anyway)
to my blogging ways. But for now.....Fish-On!!!!!!

Mainly Maine.....







Hi everybody, all back safe and sound with a brief synopsis of my recent journey...

Entered the lovely and picturesque state of Maine.
Sought out and FOUND a local grocery store. ( markets are very small in Maine )
Cooked up a swell lunch of the local fare.
Visited a Pub in Bar Harbor that had a very strange name.
Marveled at the majestic beauty of Acadia National Park.
( Repeated pics 2-5 on a daily basis for a week )

Enjoy and share any Maine-ly moments that you might have with us...I'll be around .

Where You Been Boy?




Hi Everybody.....!!!!!

What a month it's been since my last post. In all my years of blogging, this has been
my longest hiatus yet. First of all seeing my daughter and son-in-law for 10 days
was GREAT!!! We had lots of fun and storytelling and enjoying special craft beer.
Then my best friend Alex's wife Janice lost her two year battle with breast cancer last week.
Needless to say......Highs and Lows!!!
I hear that Flash Fiction 55 has been regulated to the first Saturday of the month, I'll  try
to keep abreast of that situation. I hope that all is going well in Bloggerville, I'll keep in touch.

Road Trip...!!!!!



Hi Everybody....
My daughter and son-in-law are flying into Chicago on Tuesday from Poland.
They are very frugal kids and it was lots cheaper to fly into O'Hare than it was
to fly to Detroit Metro. Of course they weren't thinking that it's a four hour drive
from Flint. I'll be taking Wednesday off as well. they will be home for 10 days.
Please join Mama Zen on Tuesday for Flash Fiction 55. .......http://mamaneedsshoes.blogspot.com/
