    One thing that pisses me off (well most everything does) is you go online to places like Home Depot and look up things you need. Need crack sealer and filler for my drive. Yeup, 17 in stock of one, 9 for the other. Great. Plan my day and get up early and head to Home Depot. Walk in and ask for the driveway sealer. Nope, not I stock yet. To early. Like WTF.. Will get here in a few weeks. If your going to have a website MAKE SURE THE DAM THING IS UP TO DATE......
    Was so pissed I went and bought a new ultra lite fishing rod to replace one I have had for 10 years.
    Strung it and put it in the boat. Going to try and head out on the am and see if the boat is ok.
    I didn't need it really. But it felt so good in my hands. It called to me. Mike..... Pick me, pick me......
    I have like 12 rods. I run 5 on the deck. 3 for spares in the well. 4 or 5 in the garage in various stages of use and repair. I gave one away a few years ago to a kid standing by the water. Him and his father were just there and the kid was pointing to me saying he wanted to fish too. The dad said when he could afford one he would buy him a rod. Well I pulled in and called the kid over. The dad didn't notice and I handed him a rod with a minnow diver on it. The kid went nuts. Well when I went past about 30 min later the kid was still fishing and pointing to me and the dad was waving. He had better have caught some fish with it.. Lol
    Put some strawberries , blueberries , cukes , tomatoes in a few boxes on the side of the house. Carol wanted to try it so I said why not. Going to have to make a fence for it I think..
    Fixed the shed window boxes.
    Race car parts on order. Found a dangerous issue with the rf spindle.
    Will try to reg the bike next week and pull that out of storage.
    Weather is warming up a little. Still dam cold...
    I should clean the interior of the Tacoma. I'll wait until I get home tomorrow I think.
    Going to have a good supper, take a nice hot shower, and screw off the rest of the night.
    HERE FISHY FISHY!!!!!!!!! PAPA HAS A SUPRISE FOR YOU.......

    I have a stupid question.
    Is there a "start a conversation" link in my box on the left.
    Everyone else has one so I'm assuming I don't have one because I can't talk to myself.
    Well, at least not in here

    I agree!!! In the day of computers, shouldn't be hard to keep the site updated :notsure:

    Hello 911... we've got a gentleman here that wants to talk to himself.... :);)

    using a pressure washer to move dirt from around tree stumps - lots of fun. Advil for aching muscles. Getting all the dirt out of my ears - priceless.... :cool:

    It's fish pic day ???
    Ok I'm not lying when I said it was an awesome day.
    Boat ran great. Saw some oil out of the lower end a few days ago but
    I think it was residual oil from the goop to winterize it. Was black and sticky.
    The gear oil is nice and clean so I'm hoping.. Will know after a few runs.
    Anyway
    I got my first after my 8th cast.
    My second after my 12th cast.
    My third after like 30....
    Unbelievable.
    Lost count.
    Switched to my ultralight and moved for some bluegills.
    Caught like 8 of those. New rod feels real good and smooth.
    Was a great time.......

    Thanks Dave.
    I knew that. Was just curious if there was one visible under your own name. One of those MMMMMMMMM moments. Don't know if I had to click on some box to activate the feature.
    All good.

    :wave: Morning all.

    Fishing pics showing up ... that's a great sign. :woot:

    No work this week, I'm on leave and fly to STL Wednesday morning. My NCOIC and "right hand man" for my last 6 yrs on active duty has his retirement ceremony on Friday. 5 and a half years since I retired from active duty, it feels like it went by quick. It'll be nice to see him and his family again. :)

    Hope all are well. :cool:

    This past weekend was the 2015 NFL Draft. Two players who started out in our program here at Lackawanna College and then transferred to West Virginia University were selected. Kevin White was the #7 pick and went to the Chicago Bears. Mark Glowinski was the only interior linemen selected by the Seattle Seahawks and was picked in the 4th Round. They are both tremendous young men who realized the results of a focus on both academics and athletics at our college. Today, our head coach brought me these two signed helmets. :woot:

    [​IMG]

    And, after talking about it for several weeks, we have decided to add a new family member. We're not sure which will be ours but this litter is just two days old and one of the 4 females (and one male) will be ours if all works out.
