    I was wondering if anyone has heard for Kojack. He hasn't posted for a while.

    Im still around, just been really busy lately. My wife and I are in the process of adopting a 5 month old little girl who we have had since just about the day she was born. I havent been fishing much, have the boat covered up. I guess I probly wont be back on the water till early spring, but i am missing it quite a bit. I am hoping to get some new electronics for the boat for christmas, a nice fishfinder is on the list. I do check in from time to time but havent posted much in a while. I am looking foreward to seeing all my friends again when we have another gathering...this time Ill have my own boat. Glad your thinking of me, but again, No worries, just been really busy.

    Good to see you back posting. Glad to hear all is well. I was in your town yesterday at SISA. If you would like to get breakfast or dinner someday that you are off just send me a PM.

    Ya, that damn Kojak. You just never know where he hides. I think he is a sniper personally.

    Brian its good to see you on board also. It seems like that after the temp began to drop, all the Rend guys went into hibernation. Have you heard from Aaron or Paul?

    I had Thanksgiving with Aaron. He is busy with two jobs and a baby plus family issues. The man is busy as all get out. He is good though... he is bitter that he did little fishing this last year. Just wasn't in his cards.

    Yep, I'm still around. Like Brian said, I'm always busy with something. My mom is not doing well, so whatever time I do have I try to help take care of her. Definitely hoping to do more fishing next year.

    Thanks Mickey. Little Abbie is doing great. Just turned 6 months and she's crawling all over the house and pulling herself up into a standing position. I was looking at treating myself to a nice 35hp Yamaha for the boat, but I ended up building a fence for the dogs instead. Maybe some of us can get together some morning for breakfast and catching up.

    I think the breakfast idea is a great one. After the holidays lets get it planned. We can post for an agreeable date and place. Glad the little one is doing well. You should have bought that motor. I'm looking for a full rig to buy . I want 18' or larger.

    Ill keep my eye out for a rig for you Mick. As for breakfast any Saturday sounds good to me. A place kinda centered would be nice. I know Aaron and Brian live in or close to Belleville, right? Might be a small trip for me but now that gas prices are back to reasonable i might be able to make a little drive.

    Wow, 6mo old already. How time flies. My wife and I have recently started adoption of a 4mo old that we have had for 2 months now. I love the little one that keeps me and her up all night....makes you wonder why you needed so much sleep before. I have found i can function on about 3 hours of disturbed sleep.

    Is there some more interest in a breakfast, after the holidays. Just getting together to shoot some bulls and maybe talk about the 2009 gathering.

    Shane that would be nice for you to hook up with us. This is a short notice and I don't know if there is sufficient time to make plans this close to the new year. We need more info from the other members. How about it. Shane when is the next time you will be back in this area?

    I will be able to take you out on Coffeen on the 27th and maybe the 26th if my vacation day is approved. Of course there is always the possibility of that we may need Rudolf to show us the way but he should be available.:wink::smile2:
