Gone Fishing

By David Farrell

We are ‘gone fishing’ this Monday and won’t be returning to your in-box before Wednesday, September 4. Our plans are varied as summer’s official close comes with the end of the ‘Ex’ and the imminence of kids going back to school. The air is becoming nippy early a.m. and the hours of daylight are shortening, telling us all that fall and winter are fast approaching. Please, we encourage, play it safe, huddle with family, and have a blast this long weekend that also plays before our upcoming federal election.


Cheers: The FYI team
