Thank you Dutch, Merry Christmas,
and to paraphrase Clement Clarke Moore or Henry Livingston "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good hang"
I've got one similar to this...well the center part anyway. It weighs nothing and does not need anything to be suspended. If you look real close you can see it at times (although not enough times I must admit) in my life. It cannot be displayed on any vehicles or even suspended from a pack because it is invisible unless worn in the heart.
Thanks Gunner/Dutch...this post made my day!

Thank you, sir.
It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.
This post made my day. It's been a particularly bad week for me and I haven't smiled in a couple days...until now. Tonight I'm sitting here and I really needed to see a reminder of God's work in us, and this post did it. It's something so simple, that can give so much peace.
Just before I deployed for Desert Storm, my girlfriend gave me a simple silver pendant for my dog tags that said "Come home safe. I love you." I looked at that pendant many times, or just touched it where it laid on my chest and knew someone was thinking of me. I did just what that pendant said to do, then married her. 21 years later it is still on my dog tags and I wear it every time I go to the woods.
Thanks for posting this, gunner. Dutch, keep being real. You are quite a guy. I hope to see you again next month.
"I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful... because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...." --Robert Traver
