Bonjour! George!

Comme c’est génial d’avoir donné à ton site la forme d’un LIVRE. Comme toujours, les produits de ton imagination méritent l’attention et l’admiration de tout le monde. Mais, au juste, quand vas-tu transformer ton livre en POISSON? C’est la prochaine étape, n’est-ce pas? De cette façon, ton site va devenir encore plus «appâtissant».

Comme le note avec beaucoup de lucidité ta gentille fille, tes textes contiennent une foule de renseignements qui nous permettent de mieux apprécier à la fois ton milieu, la richesse de ton vécu et l’acuité de ton esprit toujours aussi jeune. Évidemment, tu pourrais enrichir davantage le contenu de ton chapitre «Ramblings of a Maineiac». Mais, dans l’ensemble, ton site me plaît beaucoup. Bravo! Il vaut vraiment la peine d’être consulté avec attention.

Un ancien collègue de jeunesse,

Dear Cousin George,  What a wounderful surprise to receive your letter a couple of days ago. It sure brought back some extremely enjoyable memories of our youth. I just finished reading all of your web-site, and i found all your {blogs}  very interesting. When i read of your being an avid fly-fisherman I just knew that your brother John could take a  good share of the credit for that becoming a reality. He and Bill and my brother Paul and I used to go to Island Park {Cobbosseecontee} as soon as the fishing season opened.We would pool our money and rent a row boat for fifty-cents for three hours. For us that was a lot of money back then.{1942-43?}  This one day the four of us were on the main part ot the lake but close to the shore  the water was clear as glass, and John looked into the water and low and behold there was a fishing rod sticking out of the bottom. All four of us wanted that rod but none of us wanted to dive into that frigid water, that is until Bill at our urgings decided to go after it.He peeled down to his under clothes, now thisw is in early May there were still traces of snow and ice along the shore line but in he went. I really admired him for his courage. even if it was dumb courage. I have never seen anyone make a U-turn under water as quickly as he did, he grabbed hold of the side of the boat and he was not about to let go of it. The three of us kept telling him "You can't get in the boat until you get the rod."  His teeth were chattering so much he couldn't talk any more, all we could see was enamel flying out of his mouth. Fortunately wisdom prevailed and we helped  him get in the boat. John could talk Bill into doing some very stupid things. Some day soon I'll tell you about how John almost burned a whole hay field when we went fishing at "L'eau Rouge" a couple of miles beyond the Burns Rd.  I look forward to getting both of your autographed books when they become available.

       George. I am very happy for your success in life and with your family.  It is truly an honor for me to be not only your cousin but also your friend. God has truly blessed you. have you found time to thank Him for the work He has done in you? Please be not offended by this last  remark. I speak from a heart that is full of love and admiration for you and your success and from where it came from. In His love, your cousin Pitou..

Julian and I just finished reading your website.....inspiring, great insight of Maine Woods and family life.  Pictures are so real...great job.   Looking forward to read your book Brothers and Heroes.  Good luck George with your 2 new upcoming books.   Looking down from Heaven how proud your Uncle Arthur and your parents must be.

I like the views of Kennebago. I have only seen it from Saddleback and Sugarloaf, when it is one of the many lakes in the distance. Given the long winter, I think a bone fish or blue marlin fishing trip would have been appropriate. I have yet to read your debut book, though I am looking forward to it. Anxiously waiting in Troy

Wonderful website Uncle George! Beautiful pictures and we'll enjoy hearing more about your two passions of fishing & writing. We had a chance to read your manuscript of your book about your brothers while visiting with John & Audie in Florida. Quite a tragic story you told about your oldest brother. Amazing that you had his diary with the hand written notes about some of his war experiences. Best of luck with your books (and fishing!) and thanks for sharing your website with us.
