Most Recent Reflection

I knew Trooper Maples first and foremost as my best friend's dad when we were growing up.

I remember how he enjoyed fishing and cooking, and made some really fine biscuits.

He always had a good sense of humor and was quick to pull a joke on you or some other unsuspecting soul.

When I remember him, it is usually on the lake fishing with his son . . . getting skunked mostly.

RIP Mr. Maples
