I didn't go fishing today, instead I went to the dump and unloaded 5 bags of stinky trash and a bunch of recycling. Came home and opened up my Otter to make sure it is dry and guess what? There was still ice in the sled. Threw open some windows and aired the house out. Now I have to get the messy garage cleaned up and all my summer fishing stuff in order. Gotta be ready to hit the water as soon as the ice goes out.

You should be having a nice ice melting day today. Hopefully you all get some rain to go along with it.

The garage is also my weekend chore, but I have a 20 year old to help.

I had the surgery on both knees on April 8. So, a little over a week ago.

Glenn - I would go get it, but it's 3 hours away, and I can't drive that far because my knees hurt by about 30 minutes.

Got some good news last night though. Hubby went to Walker to get the boat!!!!! It will be home by Sunday night.

Finally made it out tonight. I stayed out with a friend, her hubby, and their munchkin until dark. Didn't catch much, some nice sunnies, a couple of small bass, and a couple of smaller crappies. It was fun though, I stopped fishing at sunset to watch it. Nice to be able to do that finally and not freeze!!!! smile

I think it is allergies. I am busy getting involved with another project. It is called "Operation Minnesota Nice", people getting together all over the state and adopting soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. They get together once a month and send packages to the soldiers. Anyone wants to know more google the name. I have decided my retirement is going to be fulfilling and adventurous.

Well it sure was good mental therapy! My man sure knows how to use his days off-surgery or no surgery. I can't wait to see his pics. He should post them in the next couple hours.

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
