Valentines Dinner at The Copper Turret 2009

Recommended Posts

Lee - I believe our tables will be ready around 7:30.

We are getting there around 6:30 for some drinks and such.

Like Tank said, last night was amazing!!!

After dinner and listening to the band while quenching our thirst AW, Vanessa, Beth, and I did some touring around the county - lets just say "what happens in Madison county, stays in Madison county" whistle

Julie and I also had a great time and great to meet everyone, we should get together a little more often. We seem to have a great crew of guys (and ladies) who get along and are great company. Here's some pictures I got.

Sorry we didn't make it down for the race Callie...I put in a cool 75-80 hours last week with a lot of mental work involved...the physical work caught up to me yesterday and today.

I made it half way to Rome at 6AM, to meet Franky and forgot my cell phone, his address for my Car Garmin and NO WAY to find his house. I started back towards home and started throwing up profusly on RT 375...pulled over and passed out for about 20 minutes...went home and went straight to bed for a few hours. I hope I am not dying...if I do, none of you guys get any of my $hite...Vanessa has been instructed to sell it to pay for my ashes to be spread on all the bodies of water I have came home from and said I caught nothing cry

Thanks for visiting Vanessa and myself this past weekend and SORRY Franky...I don't know what happened.

I did stop by Chris' today and talked to his 2 sons. They had the week off school, so I thought we would maybe try a night bite somewhere. Chris had a long day at work I guess.

I was saving the best for last smirk

Jay...We(the AW Clan) were very happy to have you and Beth in Madison Count(the previous home of quality fish) wink

Lily really didn't want you and Beth to leave and is counting the days until you return. I guess I have a new hobby(thanks bro, like I need another one) making and painting jigs. Lily got up and the first thing she did was put a clear coat on the jigs. You have a real way with children...just don't pull a Callie on me and say "Cum her litl' girl...I have fudge" and we are cool cry

Thank you everyone for making my night a little busier...it was worth the puking on RT. 375 this morning. I am waiting for the tongue lashing from Franky...I hope he had a day from the gods on Delta...if so, I deserve it. Sorry Franky...truly frown

    • If I get a Showdown soon and a newer Garmin for the bow of my boat then I would sell the Elite-5 with icepack and softwater transducer. 
    • I have refilled the 1 pounders in the past. I just don't like to do it. Always feel like they are not completely full. And yes I have watched videos on how ot do it.
    • Among others I have an Elite-5 as well and have used it for Ice fishing. It seems to run fine for a while then starts acting up. The GPS in the boat is really slow to track so it's been sitting on the shelf!  I hate being out with a bad product and screw up a whole weekend. That is why I pretty much stick with the FL-18 which has never let me down.    "For Sale"  Nice condition Lowrance Elite-5  Works perfectly!  😏
    • They sell 10's of thousands of the 20lb tanks for grills. Ice fishermen are probably the biggest market for 5lb and 11lb tanks, so we pay a premium for them because we are a small regional market.
    • yep, expensive because they are hard to find. I just refill the one pounders. easy and cheap. 
    • Why are the 5 lb. propane tanks so expensive and hard to find. I've looked online for them and they are usually about $60. 20# tanks are about $40 full. Wanting to possibly stop using the 1lb. tanks for my buddy heater and go with a 5lb. tank that will last longer. Oh, and I'm on foot 100% of the time. 
    • I was using a Marcum Showdown 5.6 and loved it. Then my teenage son started fishing with me and he has taken over the Showdown. So, I bought the ice pack for my Lowrance Elite-5 from my boat. It's OK but I much prefer the Showdown.  The Elite-5 will act up at times and it really ticks me off. Now I'm looking for a Showdown for myself again. 
    • Anyone have the latest and greatest on Morson area ice conditions?  Pretty early yet, but it’s been awfully chilly out there.   Thanks!  
    • I went ahead and bought a tag since the FA season was going pretty slow in camp.  Then bang, bang, bang, bang... just like that we all have enough venison...   My season might just boil down to a few walks in the woods, checking things out that I’ve been curious about.  Just wouldn’t feel right not carrying my smoke stick with even though I probably won’t use it.   Premature tag purchase. 🤦‍♂️
    • Dang looks nice......I'm jelly.
