...an artist with wanderlust
ADOPTED by KATHY LUNCEFORD for LARRY LUNCEFORD
It's early in the morning and the phone rings. I answer and hear a familiar voice, "Can Bill go fishing?"...I holler to little, Billy Bob Duford, "Your buddy, Larry, wants to know if you can play today!". Summer, Spring, Winter and Fall, they run off to the river to fulfill their destiny and their collective dream of, "Today's the day I get the big one!" I might add that neither one EVER brings one home, but their cameras are always full of the evidence. The trophy is usually displayed lovingly close to the camera man to make it look bigger, of course! Larry took this amazing shot holding his camera under water while it was still "on the fly". He showed it to me during dinner one evening and I asked it I could have a copy of it. He keeps asking his wife, Kathy, if I'm going to do anything with it. Well... here it is, Larry Lunceford, because today is your birthday and your loving wife commissioned a "Little Gem" for your fishy giftie! Have a fabulous day and hope you are celebrated in style!
