Default I had the pleasure of ....

I've posted a few times here about traveling back and forth to Orlando. As many of you know, TB Hawks is located in the area. Friday evening, I had the pleasure of meeting this fellow TNT’er. Tom and his wife Brenda invited me to their home for dinner and an evening of trading fishing/boating stories, family stories and alittle history of our lives.
Let me first say that Brenda set out a great steak dinner, which I truly enjoyed and appreciated. Thank you Brenda and Tom.

I learned that Tom really enjoys collecting (and shooting) guns as well as having a passion for flats fishing. His collection of guns and his rods and reels is impressive and his tackle board is meticulously kept in his garage. I asked Tom if he actually used his rods and reels, there’s not a spot on them! ;?
We sat outside (low 70’s for my fellow northeast friends) under the lanni (sp?) next to his new in-ground pool and drank a few, where the stories were traded and enjoyed. Tom has offered to take me flats fishing (a 1st for me) on one of my next trips down.. I'm looking forward to that!
Tom – I'd like to thank you and Brenda once again for a very enjoyable evening and I look forward to fishing/boating together in the near future. It was a pleasure to meet you both.


PS – if any other TNT folks get the chance to meet TB Hawks and his wife, don't pass up the opportunity.

I have no doubts about TB as he has been a true gentleman on this board . . . in a 101 different ways

Hlights2: (Steve) The pleasure was all ours, we enjoyed your company, that chair at the table is open to you any time your in town.

When meeting people for the first time the Admiral always tells me to be on my best behavior, dang Steve, we're going to have some fun the next time you come over.

I sure am glad we didn't try and go fishing this week-end, the weather sux's....I don't mind the cold, I don't mind the rain......I do not like the two mixed together.....yea, and the bite was probably outstanding today.

For the rest of you THT'ers.....Keep an eye out for this guy as he may show up in your town next....welcome him....a great guy to knock a few back with....Steve the Rolling Rock's are nice and cold..............The "Grey Goose" will be waiting for you to share.....I make a mean MARTINI............
