    I have been thinking about this, this morning.

    Would you try and catch up on all the Honey Dew projects, so your wife or significant other would have it a little easier???.

    Would you just get Stupid, with alcohol and dope, just get wasted???

    Would you go fishing, and just fish until you Drop???

    Would you go to a Casino, and just spend your time gambling???

    Would you spend your time in Church, trying to make yourself right with God????

    This is a serious question and I am wanting to know what you Good Folks would do.

    It might sound silly, but have you ever thought about it???

    Well I'm looking forward to seeing people's responses.

    If I missed something, fill in the blanks.

    What Would You Do, With 2 Weeks Left To Live???


    Looking foreword to the answers.

    Oh No

    I would get my affairs in order and then spend as much time as I could with friends and family.

    If still physically able I might go for that last chance at a big blue too. But I'd definately do it with friends.

    And Being that the BOC is my second family and I have made a lot of good friends since coming here I would spend as much time in here with them as possible too.

    I would try but if you have seen some of the stuff Ive built or tried to fix I would rather have them get it done right LOL

    No

    I would do a lot of soul searching while fishing, I would probably take the kids and wife everyday to enjoy the moment.

    Not a gambler

    Already done when I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior. Would I do anything differntly I dont think so but I would try to make it a good 2 weeks. I know that hypocrital but I admit that I am a sinner and not a very good Christian.


    Good questions

    Good question!

    Of course I would get at least one fishing trip in but mostly I think I would like to spend time with my family and tell everyone how they have touched my life and that I love them and had a good life while I was here.

    I'd cry, some for myself, the rest for those I would leave behind grieving.

    I'd laugh when I wasn't doing the crying thing.

    I'd try to arrange my business affairs and funeral preferences etc......

    I'd hope that I left things easy for my wife to get by financially. She works also and has a good job but you know what I mean.

    I'd let my wife know that I had one true love in my life because of her and lots of folks never find that so I have lived a good one.


    I'd also tell my wife that if some other guy ever comes sniffing around my stuff I'd be there haunting him!:wink::smile2:

    Make sure my sons would be okay and then go about my business as usual. Relive memories in my mind that I care to ponder. Keep to myself mostlly. Maybe tell a few folks that they make my day without revealing the reason for doing so.

    If I was the only one that knew, I would remain so. Might as well let folks treat you the way they WOULDA if they hadn't known. then ya know who loves ya!:wink:

    I really can`t say what I`d do unless I was faced with this situation but I guess making sure all the T`s are crossed and I`s are dotted would be a good place to start and then spend time with family. Good question Jim , reps to ya brother.

    The first thing I would do is be sure my heart is right with God. I would be sure all my estate is in order and spend the time with the family. I try to do this on a daily basis anyway.

    I have no first thing that I would do, but one that pops to my mind is that I would call ryang up in Ohio and tell him to come on down to LKN, so both of us can get the ryang skunk out of my boat.

    I try to stay straight with my family, so that would not be a problem.

    The T's and I's have already been taken care of a long time ago.

    I would probably go and fish several places that I like with some people that I think the world of.

    When you are seventy, two weeks is like one, so I would have to do anything as quick as possible. Shame that I don't have a mother in-law like Phil Washburn.

    For sure I would not be doing any honey do's.

    The last evening I would have my friends over and give each and everyone of them my fishing gear. The estate can sell my boat and truck.
