It is 9:45pm here on the West Coast of Canada. I know that is late for the winning post, but I have been out with my daughter, son-in-law and the grandkids while they camped at the river this weekend. They have been camping since Thursday night as Friday was a holiday here. It has been beautiful weather for camping! Of course, it helps that they have a lovely travel trailer, and have all the latest in camping gear.

Yesterday, there was a Sturgeon fishing guide out on the river with a party of fishermen, and they caught the longest Sturgeon Mike has ever seen. Sturgeon are catch and release here, and the guide needed help getting the fish netted and held for a photo. He called out to shore for help and chose my grandson to assist. He needed someone who was comfortabe with a net that size and was pleased to hear that my grandson had been successfull at sturgeon fishing before, and knew that time was of the essence to net, take the photo and release. What an exciting day for Peter!

Now, onto the winnner... I used random org and out of 41 entries, our winner is #27, Vallerija.
Vallerija, Could you please drop me an email to with your address.
