Time for our “CAN I GET AN AMEN” story of the day!  At “THE MORNING BULL” we believe in the power of positivity.  We believe there are more good people than bad in the world, and we believe that goodness should be celebrated when you find it!

If you’re feeling a bit down, need a little good news boost – here is proof there still plenty of good people in the world.  Our story is about Ray Johnstone.  Ray knows loss.  Ray is a grandfather to 9 wonderful grandkids, but Ray lost his wife a couple of years ago.  SO, he immersed himself into his favorite past time…fishing!  Ray and his buddy went fishing almost every day – until his fishing bud also passed away recently.  So Ray decided to something very unusual for an old dude – he took out an online ad for some company.

“My name is Ray Johnstone…I’m a widowed pensioner who is looking for a fishing mate my previous fishing mate is now deceased. (now) I am a land based fisherman I have all the gear for all types of fish that is required for land-based fishing,” Johnstone said. “What I want is a fishing mate… someone to go fishing with, I am willing to share all costs,” Johnstone wrote in his ad.  In less than a week, He had over 22,000 people view and offer to be his fishing buddy

One of the highlights of the post is when Johnstone switched the text to caps lock randomly. I mean come on whose parents or grandparents haven’t done that before… Ray’s ad did go on to say “..arrange a meeting to see if we could get along with each other…thanking you Ray Johnstone.”

After feeling a bit overwhelmed, Ray sorted through the messages and yesterday posted a picture of the fishing mate Johnstone so desperately deserves, with the widower on Monday finding a pal to go fishing with him.

“I have found a fishing partner. Gumtree called me and said the ad went viral,” Johnstone told

So where ever you are in the kitchen or in the car…can throw your hand in the air, “CAN I GET AN AMEN” for this … Always focused on the good news, and if you ever see a story that would make a great amen email it in at
