An online classifieds ad posted by a South Australian widower will melt your frozen heart on this cold February day.
In the ad, 75-year-old Ray Johnstone shares that he’s looking for a new fishing buddy, since his last one passed away.
“I’m a widowed pensioner who is looking for a fishing mate,” he wrote. “My previous fishing mate is now deceased. I am a land based fisherman. I have all the gear for all types of fish that is required for land based fishing.”
Not surprisingly, Johnstone’s ad really struck a cord with people and has been viewed more than 23,000 times.
We’re confident he’ll find a new fishing mate soon.
