Hi all, my little book is a story I have told our grandkids and parts of it I have told our kids, things were added over the years. Usually the kids try and guess if the charactors are our son and Daughter or if its one of them.  We did live at Cocolalla when we first moved to Idaho 45 years ago. We fished, swam and ice skated on Cocolalla Lake and we always tried to catch old Mossy Back, one of the main charactors in the book. We still chant "Come on Ole Mossy Back when we go fishing as we did then, trying to vibe a big fish in. 

It is a sweet story about friendship,caring and the bond and love of family.
