The more we learn, from the Bay and from Bay people, the more valuable the gift becomes.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-weekly-featured-article"> <div class="field-label">Weekly Featured Article:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> No </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-attached-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/articles/bay-reflections/article/beginning-bay-reflection-vol-i-no-1" class="imagecache imagecache-lead-image-teaser imagecache-linked imagecache-lead-image-teaser_linked"><img src="http://bayweekly.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/lead-image-teaser/images/slider-tab-thumbs/bald-cypress-092916.jpg" alt="" title="" width="100" height="158" class="imagecache imagecache-lead-image-teaser"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://bayweekly.com/articles/bay-reflections/article/beginning-bay-reflection-vol-i-no-1" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://bayweekly.com/articles/bay-reflections/article/beginning-bay-reflection-vol-i-no-1#comments Bay Reflections Mon, 03 Oct 2016 13:14:19 +0000 bayweekly_master 35008 at http://bayweekly.com Let’s Go Fishing! http://bayweekly.com/articles/fishing/article/let%E2%80%99s-go-fishing <div class="field field-type-text field-field-tagline-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><em><strong>A Father&rsquo;s Day memory</strong></em></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Article Author:&nbsp;</div> Diane Knaus </div> </div> </div> <p>Dad said let&rsquo;s go fishing when Mother asked what he wanted to do on Father&rsquo;s Day.<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;He bought fresh fishing supplies the day before.
