    It is amazing how small the world is............................or how big the Brotherhood has become! I hope that you all get some fishing in. Should be able to catch something bigger than a catfish out there!

    I think Shane hit it right on this one...the BOC has reached a membership level that is large enough that you just might encounter a fellow member just about anywhere.

    Now, if you meet a BOC brother on Wall Street, you can really feel special! :eek:oooh:

    Now that's neat!

    Sometimes it does sound like a small world.

    Eric thanks for sharing a neat story. Now you have a BOC brother on the rig and let the catfishing began.

    Yeah, I thought it was pretty neat too!!! Unfortunately we didn't get to visit but a minute. We were both busy and then they transfered him to another rig. Just goes to show ya, ya never know who your gona meet!

    And NO FISHING in Mexico!:sad2: Spent 7 years in the north gulf fishing on rigs just about every day, but that ended a few years ago when I transfered to the Mexican division.

    Wow very nice :) I have to admit that since I've joined, when I pass a boat obviously rigged for cattin being pulled down the highway, I slow down a little and take a longer look in the window to see if I recognize an avatar....... :tounge_out: Don't know what I'd do if I did recognize someone... guess just grin and wave real big. Then the next time I checked the board I'd probably see a post where someone had some big hairy redneck road maniac grinning and waving at them....... :p
