I’d like to introduce you to Willis. He goes by the nick name of Snagman, originally from south of the border,Florida, now living inWindsor, two hours from me. We’d intended to meet but never did, to my regret.
His handle comes from his avocation, fishing, his passion. He’s a fascinating old world gentleman, a true man of the south. Well now he’s in southwesternOntario 😀
I also carry the trait that men are spoke to with a yes sir no sir when answering questions or in conversation. To this day I still open doors for the women folk and offering a arm out for support in walkin em into public places. Yes I sure do know bout the Northerners hahaha ya should a seen me first time as a young soldier in downtown New York City hahaha talk about fresh meat those people had a field day with me until I got schooled on the ways of the North hahahaha!
When I wrote my vampire goes fishing story, I did ask his advice as I know nothing about fishing. link is here Vampire fishing story
I actually field test for product not money…as I am retired from the US ARMY. I figure shoot I’m out on the lake fishing why buy equipment when I can get companies to send me their products to fish with works out purdy good for me lol. I was a recruiter for the Army and was always told I could sell ice to Eskimos (who live in the Klondike)
We met on one of the sites the My Spacers gravitated to last year. The site tried to disguise itself as a blogging site and not a social networking one. As it turned out the masquerade failed and people left. He doesn’t blog. His interest is people and is another person I never would have met if not for the World Wide Web. We corresponded a while and then it died off. His humour always gave me a smile
I wrote several stories about fishing for several fishing websites as well as have some long hand written stories from my childhood fishing adventures but never considered putting them into a book, like say I am street smart and not educated in the languages enough to actually expect it to be put into print.
Yea my wife says I am good at old southern story telling as I do talk a tad bit different than folks up this way and I have been and done a lot what most folks ain’t…Southern term for Lady as yourself I would address to in terms of Miss, Mrs or Ma’am my Mother would pin my ears back if I spoke in disrespect to a lady, plus my senior leader military training to female officers was Ma’am or if we was escorts to parties & balls all the ladies was addressed as ma’am. LoL never thought of being able to talk in second or third person so writing down things seems to me pretty limited…reckon I’d have to collaborate with a writer & split the profits hahahaha
I would end the e mails with
Willis sent pics!
