    So this weekend there was a wake boat that got on the water Friday night. I was sitting in the house when I heard the music blasting from the other side of the lake. I went outside to see what the hell and the neighbor 2 door down was out like me. He was on his phone evidently the people were staying at a cabin that is rented out. Those a holes blasted music (sounded like the same song) all day long and hugged the shore with their massive wake. That went on till Saturday evening somebody made a call and the local authorities shut them down.

    Made the mistake of telling the wife that I looked at a pontoon at bass pro, now she wants to go look at them. I do not need a tritoon with a 150 hp motor, I have a pontoon I do not have to worry about guests damaging, it is nothing fancy but the interior apolstry is in good shape and the 60 hp honda runs well.

    She spends enough to be happy, plus do I want to see my son's friends trying to dock a $75,000 pontoon? My current pontoon I paid $6,000 cash I need to put new carpet in it other than that it is solid.

    Right you don’t need a Tritoon with a 150?
    You need a Tritoon with a 350? Just because you can!

    Nope we are headed to red rocks end of the month, we have to spend an extra day because we have to go pick up some more rocks she bought, and figure out how we are getting 350 pounds of rock back on the air plane. I don't know what kind of rocks she bought I call them BJ rocks and do not get punched so I know they are expensive. I might just tell her rock selling friend she owes me one too. She has spent more with this person on rocks than I spent on her engagement ring. Part of the 3 rings of a man's life. The engagement ring, the wedding ring, and the suffer ring.

    I'm sure you will not like the bill for shipping those rocks back on your flight.

    Have rock selling friend ship them like a normal business would-in a box strapped to a pallet.

    It's been too long since I shopped for groceries. And it shouldn't be so damn hard to find staples like grits and horseradish....

    Haha pretty much. Haven't had that happen in awhile.

    Major cities...:lmao2: that's Detroit son. You don't want to be there. But if you are, you could go see a Tigers game. Should have no problem finding a good seat.

    I am already so sick of hearing about the dead queen....I don't give a flying F@#K that she is dead.

    Another thing that annoys me is when people post "RIP" It just seems really tacky and disrespectful.
