Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

Kate and Briggs were in a fishing camp this week. Their one big treat of the week took place yesterday -  a day of deep-sea fishing. They came back a bit sunburned but having caught more than 50 fish each. (Catch and release.) They were tired and hit the hay early. I had to laugh. They are twelve. But I’m not sure a summer day gets much better than that.

Here’s to your weekend – may the fish be biting. Now, on to this weekend’s reading pile.
