Default Hey Yall....

Hello again everyone, I just wanted to thank you all (especially some of the older members) for all of your support and prayers during the last 9 months. Some of you remember I was in a horrible motor vehicle crash while on duty as a State Trooper here in Jacksonville,Florida. I sustained some pretty serious brain injuries and was forced to undergo months of therapy to learn how to talk again and to learn how to use my right hand again. I was not able to talk for about 3 months but that did not stop me from getting a few laughs on this forum. I was here, just did not have the ability to type responses (usually PNJ beat me to the punch anyways!!!). I will be back on the road at work and more importantly back on the boat at the end of July. Its been a rough 9 months and I could not have done it without your prayers. Thank you all again. God bless. Catch one for me!!!

dang man, just being able to type after a brain injury is quite an accomplishment, sounds like you got lucky! hope ya catch some hawgs on your first trip out, but before you hook into those big bass, take a moment on the water and count your blessings and really enjoy your surroundings. glad you had a good recovery and thanks for your hard work.
Lizardsrule may not be able to drive a boat, but he can sure put you on the fish!

Awesome. Hate the recovery part, but it's well worth it in the end. I live just south of you in Saint Augustine, when your able, let me know, and we'll go HAWG Hunting.

There are three types of Snakes I hate 1. Live Snakes 2. Dead Snakes 3. Sticks that look like Snakes. And Gators too!
