Larry Parks shows off a couple of big ones he caught with his favorite shirt on.

As the days of my life have begun to accumulate into a sizable number of years, I’ve had more time to reflect and count my blessings.

Retirement brings about more moments to give thanks for great memories. After the daily chores are done, I often sit outside in the shade of our house at Lazy Daze and flashback to some of those great family times that cause me to pucker up and grin: a few of those were the completion of our first three-bedroom home, watching our beautiful dark-blue Pontiac Bonneville roll off the car trailer at Clyde V. Lee Motors and a really big vacation to the Outback Islands of the Bahamas.

Larry Parks of Lake Jackson is author of “Dancing with the Waves,” a collection of stories and people gathered from a liftime of fishing, which is available for purchse at The Facts office.
