Kevin, I am interested but cannot commit for several weeks for family medical reasons. Good luck in filling it fast, if so, I can catch the next one.


I am sending you a PM, if you don't mind, for a recipe on your "Jumpin Jack" Musky Fly, sooner or later I will obtain another of your fine creations.

A Pitt fan, a Marshall fan, and a WVU fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team most. The Marshall fan insists that he is most loyal and then yells,"This is for Marshall!" and jumps off the mountain. Not to be out done,The WVU fan next professes his love for his team. He screams,"This is for the Mountaineers!" and pushes the Pitt fan off the mountain.
