  1. Love this photo! It captures a “Mayberry” moment every boy should have, especially a handsome young man like this one.

    LOL – if it were the fish you’d have a clear prize-winner!! But I’d rather have the 6′ grandson 🙂

    Too sweet to catch a fish and pose with his priceless possession. Very rewarding.
