'Waska by Glenwood was my thought, too. Didn't know about "Crappie Town" though.

Gotta love the guy with the slimer in his pocket.

Cool pix. I would have hated to be the poor kid with his face right in front of the exhaust pipe when being pulled by that pickup.

    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!
    • Hoo boy. I better get me booties on. 
    • Haven't you ever heard "It's better to Send, then to Receive"

    • Hillary and whatever terminal illness she has did seem like a favorite fake news item for you, although I thought it was a close second besides that obama boner thing you really really wanted to see.
    • I'll say one thing for Uncle B______ you're always good for a chuckle or------
    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.  
    • My favorite fake news.   Well....   One of my favorites.     She was just exhausted from the heat. (78 deg)   No. No. Wait.   She has pneumonia...   Yup, Yup.....that's it..  
    • That the snow's coming. My crab apple, and the ground below it, is literally loaded with Robin's gorging themselves. Started yesterday and hasn't stopped...I counted 15 at once before they flit around and land on another branch.
