    We actually found one behind a fuse in the garage shortly after moving in.:eek:

    Ha funny how that works. Back on cutting carbs and already have that strong urge for pasta. Very strong urge.

    They are looking awesome looking Rick, great job and nice wrap :thumbsup:

    For me it is the Dungeness Crab. Used to trout and steelhead fish in the Dungeness River, and of course get those bushel baskets of crabs. Came as a surprise to me that they are all up and down the West coast not just the Dungeness River.

    When I was in Bremerton, Wa. and had duty would take a bunch of long lines and tie a nut to the end and leave a tag end. Then tie chicken pieces to the tag end that the ships cooks would give me. Climb out on the huge logs between the pier and ship and drop them off the log and tie them off. By the time I got done dripping them I'd go back and start pulling and there would be a crab upside down hanging on to the meat. Got pretty good at getting them over the log before they let go. I'd fill a mesh laundry bag full of them in an hour. Then the ships cook would cook them up for me and keep some. Here in the Upper Midwest fresh crab? Not so much.

    It's funny how military gear works so handy for hunting and fishing. We use to use a lot of our gear for camping out.

    That was kinda like what we did as kids. A tail bone on the end of a piece of twine and a dip net fashioned from chicken wire.

    Hopefully it all pans out and it's just a bad feeling. We do alright but it wouldn't take long with us having just one paycheck to go under.

    Drove through El Paso years ago. Border Patrol stopped us that night outside town. Answer a few silly questions, didn’t search the RV that I could’ve smuggled 50 illegals in! Sent us on our way.

    Enjoy life! We have to wait another month or two before sitting outside in the sunshine.

    Home building is very stressful. Hopefully she’s just feeling home building stress.

    Small useful for me stuff.
    Evening kids, let’s see if I can remember everything and make this work. Hehe




    That’s good on two fronts. I’m keeping mine for a while longer. I started it as a protest and now it’s part of me. I can be on a job of 200 people and anyone on site can track me down. Good and bad. Lol.



    Hmmm. Sorry to much time has passed and I’ve lost it. 1.


    Next move is feet first. I’m done.



    Use a penny. Never have the problem again. :rolleyes: o_O



    Sounds like a mess. I’ve had the pleasure of going through systems like that. Not always fun. I do like fuses over breakers at certain levels though.



    Sorry but straight to the garbage can. Not enough mustard to make them taste 1/2 way good.



    Ah. Hehe. Yes.

    Not crazy, just grumpy, or so I’ve heard.




    :rofl:





    :sorry: On the dungees. They are a staple for us when in season. Either off the coast or up to the sound and the big cooler goes home full. They are a true treat.

    sorry to hear this. That's the worst feeling ever. I worry about my contract ending.
    I hope she is wrong in her thinking.

    Yep it is Monday. Good morning.

    Damn Andy you have enough stress going on, hope she is wrong. Like Rob said home remodeling is very stressful for everyone, to say the least. Yeah life throws curve balls all the time but hang in there. You got this one too.
