    mine are simple.
    1.drink less beer
    2. take my new baby fishing
    3. camp more and spend more time with family and kids.
    4 grow and make my own horseradish

    last but not least. eat the worlds hottest pepper that im growing and survive.:roll_eyes:

    already quit smoking so 4-5 years ago so dont have to worry about that one. maybe loose a few lbs. but its hard with the summer BBQ's.

    you sure wont be upset about a gathering. the illinois is at carlyle again. awesome camp with old hardwoods that lay a great deal of shade down. sad in multiple hard attempts ive never caught a fish there. but even though i wont be taking the boat anymore, (to expensive now to take it 2 1/2 hrs for joyriding) and probably will only help the boy fish (ive given up there) i already have my site comfirmed and cant wait to go. this year i dont have to worry about the boat or trailer breaking down lol.

    long story short i lost keys to it in arkansas and broke a trailer leaf spring goint to carlyle. :angry:

    i can just relax and cook eat and socialize. and as always. make sinkers.:big_smile:

    have a great Illinois Gathering and add as many folks to the BOC as possible to help them become educated on how much we here love our catfishing and encourage them to respect our waters and our fish for future generations to come...

    Support CatFish Rescue if you have not yet it is a great cause...

    My goals? Well I guess the women can jump into this one too...

    1. to outfish Country each and every chance I get.
    2. to be there for family a little more than I have in the past couple of years.
    3. to raise the bar personally as far as getting things done in a timely fashion--I am a procrastinator at home.
    4. To get to know more of you and just treat myself to a good time in this forum. It's about time in my life that I did some things that *I* enjoy doing and quit worrying about work so much!

    Spend more time with my family and take the time to talk to distant relatives more often.

    Pay off some bills!!!!

    Get the house interior repainted, lay down hardwood floors and tile the kitchen.

    Finish building the engine on my old bronco and get it on the road.

    Catch a 50+ flathead or blue.
