well this spring made 4 years on the b.o.c. :crazy: ya never had that long of an intrest in anything before even one woman. untill my wife,lol in that thime ive made some friends, lost some, r.i.p. made some enemies, had a new son who just caught his first fish with pop's help this past week. ive gotton a little comfortable here and shoot off my pipe sometimes but in all try and help out guys and share stories and stuff i know. all in all its been a good ride. i cant say all the wonderful things this has taught me as well as the laughs and arguments. its all a learning experience. ive seen things here that made me laugh to tears and things that made me so mad i was screaming at my puter lol. there are a lot of fellas on here i sure enjoy talking to. the gas prices are so high out of state gatherings are not in my grasp now as they were in the past. sure enjoied them and anyone that hasnt gone to one its a life changing event. because ya look at folks here in a different way once you have tossed a line and had a meal with them. looking forward to meeting some new fellas in aug. its always fun. ive had the delight of trading some stuff (fishing gear tackle heck even meat) through the mail with members. thats not something ive had the delight to do other than ebay where its buisness. not guys trading stuff to help each other out. some of my old buddies just up and dissappeared.:sad2: guess they loose intrest too. but i cant. sometimes its nice just to sit down here. its like talking to a buddie while all alone. the prayers i have gotton from others in times of need. they sure are uplifting.:0a31: both my sons first fish stories and pics i shared here. guess a redneck with a computer is a dangerous thing,lol. dont even know why i am writing this. just felt like talking i guess. just saying thanks i guess. for all the info help and BS. good or bad i wouldnt change it for the world. where else can ya find someone to send a school project 600 miles to someone? argue nascar with a guy 200 miles away? or talk gardening with a guy 1000 miles away? hell i guess maybe there are other places. but i like this one. time to clam up. thanks guys.
