Greetings to all!

I have just joined the board after lurking in the shadows since the EZBoard days. My workweek has been reduced to four days most weeks, so there is now a little more spare time in my life.

Most of my free time is spent fishing for redfish and flounder on the back-bays of the Texas coast in my kayak, hence the moniker. The balance is mostly spent gardening. I have have made a few successful (and many disastrous) attempts at grafting citrus and fig trees.

My partner of 18 years and I live in a town on Galveston Bay (much too) near Houston.

It is not likely that I will be a frequent poster, but at least I now can add my two cents when I feel the urge. The regular posters here have been a constant source of edification and enjoyment for me.

Warmest regards,

Jim

Belated greetings from me, too, Bayaker (I’m not very conscientious about reading Meta threads). New voices, fresh ideas are always welcome!

What a great introduction, Bayaker (and equally great moniker). Plug in where you care too.

You were around in the EZboard days! Wow! That officially makes you a veteran! Welcome

(Also, first named, Jim)

From the opening post:
