Rather, IT'S off.
The fly fishermen book, that is. It was released to the world this past Tuesday, although I must admit it has been up on Amazon since May 2. You're invited to write a review, by the way.
But Tuesday, we partied. We celebrated not only the book itself, but the men and women who contributed and told life stories. Here we are all gathered together:
We had a little ceremony, Ron Beane explaining his dream of the book to tell these men's lives, me thanking everyone. The women in the photograph helped by writing about their husbands or fathers. Their stories were from the heart, honoring, showing love and pride.
We presented each man or a representative with a copy. That was the fun part, thanking them for baring their souls for the world to read.

Note their nametags. We wrote page numbers on the tags so that during the signing, people could skip to their pages quickly. And the fishermen could sign on their own profile pages.
|I signed books|
|Co-author, Ron Beane signed books|
|We all signed books|
|And signed books|
I'm not too fond of overused expressions, but sometimes there's no other way to express a feeling. So here goes:
A good time was had by all.
