Mary squeezes in a funeral during Columbia fishing trip

Mary and Sam loved the outdoors. When I am not in Bremerton or Belfair, I live on my 1968 30-foot Chris-Craft in a marina outside of Longview on the Columbia River. A lot of fishermen keep their boats there during fishing season. My neighbor goes out every chance he can get and this year he has been lucky. He even gave me a beautiful salmon weighing about 20 pounds. Better enjoy this weather, folk. It's not going to last much longer.
