Upon returning to our home in North Pole, Ala., after wintering in Henry County; we were invited to go halibut fishing with our friends, Rusty and Marie, on their boat. A week on the water? We hadn’t even unpacked our clothes! It took only a few seconds for me to say yes to the invitation. Really, now, who would hesitate more than a few seconds on an offer like that? A few quick loads of laundry; a night’s sleep and we were good to go.
