Quite a catch

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Damen Shepard, 11, Brazil, got an unexpected surprise when he spent his last summer day before returning to school going fishing with his grandfather and great-grandfather. Shepard discovered several freshwater jellyfish in a lake near Staunton and brought them to The Brazil Times for everyone to see. Ivy Jacobs photos.

The story of the jellyfish was not the main attraction of this story to me after reading it. What I did embrace was the idea of this young man being able to spend time with his grandfather and great-grandfather. Absolutely priceless! Take advantage of it, Damen. God bless you all!!
