Absolutely nothing.....all our money we spent on our two little girls. It was the best Christmas ever seeing there eyes light up. Best part was when my 6 year old said her favorite gift was her bow and arrow!

I got a wonderful time with my immediate family and my extended family.  My kids were spoiled like crazy and my wife and I enjoyed it a ton.  I got a chair for hunting out a blind and a safety line for ascending a tree.  I also got some much needed clothes.  Most importantly, I got time with my whole family and I loved every minute of it.  Every single Christmas I get to spend with everyone in my family, before any of them disappear from this world, is a gift that I appreciate more than I can articulate.  It was a great Christmas!

From my youngest daughter who is twenty-eight I received four bass silhouettes cut out off green cardboard stock. In the mouths of the cutout fish were spinnerbaits but the best part is on the back of the cutouts as they are actually coupons! Since my daughter works full-time her fishing days are not as many as they once were and her days off like everyone's are few and far between. The coupon says it is redeemable for one day of fishing, no questions asked. I give her the coupon and she will drop what ever she has going on and we spend a day on the water, we did this last summer when she gave me three coupons, this year she gave me four ! She even wrote down on the corner that it has a cash value of 1/20 of a cent, but to me they are priceless!

Got a knight muzzleloader from my father in law. My first foray into front loaders so I'm excited for the new challenges.

    •   Dave, I’ll take a shot at your question. Just like you always say, we can’t be the police for the whole world. On the same lines we can’t be the world’s health and human services department as well.   Do you honestly think that people in need are only in Mexico a couple hundred miles from the US border? There are many people throughout the world that don’t have good jobs and find it tough to put food on the table. What separates those people from the Mexicans a couple hundred miles from the border? Do you want to tell the family in Africa that since they are a couple thousand miles from our border they don’t count?   It’s a cruel world as they say and the US caps immigration at a certain number each year. Is it fair for the people that wait their turn and go through the proper channels to immigrate here and then say oh well to the immigrants that sneak across the border illegally? There is a system in place and all immigrants should follow it whether they are 100 miles from our border or 2,000 miles from our borders.   In a perfect world we could let anyone that has a tough life into the US but that would be an astronomical number of people and our country and economy could not support that no matter how much we tried. What Jesus or good Christians would do is not feasible in today’s world, we can’t save all the people in the world no matter how hard we try.
    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.
    •     What one did you get???
    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.   
    • The new minn kota 300d didn't have the two 20ga wires so just spliced the black  to black and red to white from the charging cables, hooked all the batteries back up and everything is working again.
