Cylinder Clamps and The Deep Blue Sea


     It is almost the third month of the year and I am proud to say I am still hanging on to my "health is wealth" pledge. I've been jogging and taking brisk walks regularly plus eating a balanced diet. One of my first around town walks led me to the beach where my dad used to go fishing on weekends when he isn't busy working with tools and his other stuff at home. I used to call him MacGyver because he loved fixing just about anything professionally as well as at home. Had he been alive to this day I'd buy him one of those efficient
pneumatic swing cylinder clamps for his work-holding needs. A lot of new tools have come out of the market and sometimes I wonder how he would have loved utilizing them. One thing I am sure of is that he would love to take those early morning and afternoon walks with me to the beach where the world seems to be so serene and where everything seems possible.

      Sharing with you my most recent shots from the fishing community in our town.
