“Gone Fishin’” by Louis Armstrong

I had a really nice day yesterday with my future son-in-law, Ferruccio. We met my friend, John, on the River Spey near Aberlour where he had booked a day's fishing. Ferruccio and I joined him and he was given the opportunity to try his hand at river fishing for salmon. John kitted him out in waders and taught him how to cast. A pity he didn’t catch a fish but they just weren’t biting yesterday. After lunch Ferruccio and I went a walk before returning home. Just a lovely day to be alive.

I like your countryside sceneries! Reminds me of my holiday in Scotland, when we drove through the country.
