One day, a friend suggested they all go skydiving. She said it was an individual jump because 25 years ago they did not have tandem skydiving. She was only 16 years old. Her instructor said her parachute was not going to open all the way because she was not big enough.

Friday’s Reel Report was not current. If you noticed, I mentioned on July 13 that the Gulf shrimping season had opened on July 15. Well, the report I sent in was from July 2014 and resulted from a glitch in my old laptop computer. Regardless, I should have caught it and apologize for any inc…

This weekend looks good for the Mosquito Fleet to make it offshore. Light winds are in the forecast, and the only hiccup is higher chances of rain Sunday. Saturday definitely looks like the day, if you are among the smaller seaworthy boats that enjoy summertime fishing off Galveston.

One of the joys of running is being out in nature, but sometimes civilization intrudes a little too much. It’s jarring to find trash along a favorite outdoor path or to have cans and bottles marring a beach run. Apparently, it’s a universal problem, and Scandinavians have addressed it by “pl…
