Can you imagine the mother of Christopher Columbus saying, “I don’t care what you’ve discovered, you still could have written!”?
Or, George Washington’s mother saying, “The next time I catch you throwing money across the Potomac, you can kiss your allowance good-bye!”?
Or, Thomas Edison’s mother saying, “Of course I’m proud you invented the electric light bulb. Now turn it off and go to sleep!”?

My son and I just did a four hour float on the river. It was only my second time this year, but our first. I had been waiting for the water to recede from several spring rains that had hit our area. And after being away for a few days, it all lined up for us to go. It was a beautiful, short-sleeve comfortable, morning that was also full of some great expectations from me. This time of year the fishing can be good all day long and the fish don’t seem as finicky. The water was not yet warm enough to throw my favorite top water bait so we opted for a small fluke.
