Any bell ringers?

5 posts in this topic

The family will be ringing Saturday morning. We've done it 5-6 times. It's an interesting social experiment to watch the people.

You must be ringing for the Salvation Army? When I’m in a town with the bell ringer I like the look on the ringers face when I open my billfold and drop a 5 or 10 dollar bill in instead of digging in my pocket for change. I don’t go to the bigger towns very often so why not drop a little extra. Thank you for ringing. I also donate to Hospice being that is a very worthy cause also.

Good for you and your family .I really admire you ringers who take time out of your busy lives to donate time to a VERY great organization .It is one of the few charities that I donate to.They really are needed in these most difficult times for some poor folks.

Thanks for cleaning up the post Dave. There's no room for negativity when it comes to the Salvation Army, they have and continue to do many great things for people in need not only during the holidays but all through the year. Thanks to those who donate thier time to help!

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
