    Great information, THANKS!

    We are booking a room the night we get there and the night before we fly back home. Everything in between will be traveling with just a backpack in a rental car and going where the wind blows. We decided that we did not want to feel rushed to leave a town or pub that was amazing. Originally we were talking about 7 to 10 days, but now that my wife has retired, we may do two or three weeks. I may PM you for more info as we make our plans if that is okay?

    I had a pump that I sent out to get repaired, it is a high flow pump. I set it up on the dock ran 50' of hot line into the water and I jetted the silt away down to sand and gravel, it is night and day. This morning there was a bass sunning himself, I just went down to get ready to jet some more and the wood ducks were diving there in the shallows, I was just trying to get to sandy bottom created some habitat there. I may do it in a few spots in the bay for spawning beds. Went down and watched the fish and ducks are eating snails.

    I saw Lee Greenwood in concert a long time ago. He closed the show with “God Bless the USA”. Not one person sitting during that song. It was a long standing ovation.

    Some times simple things are great. Found a sale yesterday on fresh wings. 1.29 a pound. Got 3 packs for 16.00. Cut off 1.22 # of wing tips that get used for broth. Then separated the rest of wings for 7 dozen wings to freeze. Holidays a snacks. Not including using the stock tips, 2.29 a dozen is not bad.

    Very best thing,
    Daughters coming up in the morning and we are taking our kayaks to a local lake. It's the one I can see from my stand out back. Just sat down from cleaning up the turkey dinner. Going to snip beans I picked tonight and get to sleep early I can hardly wait!

    Free pizza.

    Ordered Pizza Hut tonight because they offered free cheese sticks for upcoming birthday. Ordered a large 3 topping pan pizza and some wings as well.

    Delivered and didn't even notice until I opened a box there was an extra box. Figured they delivered someone elses rder, but nope, 2 identical pizzas.

    Helped ease the pain of inflation, and nope, not sorry. Felt like getting the banking error in your favor community chest card in Monopoly :lol:

    Watching Jake Paul get whooped by Diaz. Predicting Logan and Nick get into it for a secondary fight.

    Sad when pro boxing has turned to this. Bring on Fury and Nganoou
