    Rick, first of all...Welcome To The BOC. Sounds like you had a frustrating start to your day but had a great finish! Nothing better than catching a big ole blue cat :big_smile:. I hope the river down here is going to settle down. This morning she looks less muddy and more of a blue-green shade. I'm going out Friday..:tounge_out: so send some of those kitties downstream for me.
