    Y'all are making me want to wake "the bug" up and hug him.

    If used in salt water, look the trailer over very carefully.

    We have some apple trees in the yard and when the apples start to fall it brings the deer in. After a few days of eating apples the deer crap gets real loose not those nice tight little ball bearings. Well Rhett my setter likes the nice gooey stuff to roll in. He wakes me up, I let him out, he rolls in the crap and wants back in. I put an addition on the house a few years ago and made sure the new shower was big enough to accommodate both him and me. Much easier than going out on a 50 degree morning and washing him with a hose in 50 degree well water. Fortunately it's only about a th
  5. In 2021 CRP acreage will increase by 4 million. The USDA will also adjust soil rental rates. Will increase payments for practice incentives from 20 to 50%. Increase payments for water quality practices. Establish a CRP grassland minimum rental rate. Should be good news for farmers and bird hunters across the midwest.

    Of my 7 dogs. One of them is totally into it's self. She only wants to be fed. After that she only cares about her enjoyment. If I have a training collar on her she will listen to me but if she doesnt she'll do what she wants to do. I now have to put her on a roading harness to allow her to run. If I dont she want come back. She'll go off and come back when she feels like it 2hrs or 2 weeks later. This rebelious nature is getting on my last nerve. This will be the first dog I may have no other choice but send her down the road. The rest of my pack, all they care about is being with o

    Stihl sells simmer bar oil and winter bar oil. Viscosity is very different.
  9. Hopefully he'll come visit us and drive folks around in the 2-seat indycar next month, though hope he doesn't do any flips again! They just announced 40% capacity for the 500 which translates to ~135,000 people - the largest gathering post-covid so far. No snakepit though - just controlled/distanced seating in the stands & masks required.

    Digging!!

    I use concrete paving blocks to cover the holes. Doesn't bother me as there is very little grass growing after 30 years of dog.
  11. I think you're right - probably was the Channel Inn rather than Anchor in (I've slept once or twice since then!) It was expensive for college students who just spent all their money on gas and beer, so we didn't eat for a day and a half, then sat there for about 4 hours eating, digesting, eating again! Was a great trip until we spent the night at Galveston - body surfed until dark, everything was great. Woke up to pouring rain. Radio said no letup for 3 days, so we packed up and headed north. Hit houston and the rain was a nightmare. My buddy tucked in behind a semi's tires so he did

    Old Bamboo Fishing Rod Repair

    Thanks. I presume finding a replacement brass ferrule that will have the weathered, oxidized look will be practically impossible. The more I think about it, I may just look for a brass sleeve that slides over the broken female ferrule, or have one made somehow.

    Viscosity is totally related to temp, but I misunderstood your post, thinking you were referring to vis differences between bottles or brands. Still, I can't imagine pouring chain and bar oil at -5, unless it happens to have a lot of VI improver in it, and even then the tackifier would effect it horribly, unless it's all settled and sitting at the bottom of the container. But what do I know about sawing wood and chain saws at -5. (absolutely nothing)

    Digging!!

    Mine excavates mole holes. I was putting large rocks over the holes to stop the digging. It worked, but now it's hard to mow the lawn.

    My lab Kate likes to roam the back yard at 2 a.m. She's a house dog so someone has to let her out and back in 😬

    Good movies that you have seen.

    Stumbled on 'Moose: The Movie' on prime video. Odd ball stuff appeals to me

    Ferrules will be glued on but some ferrules are also pinned. You can remove them by applying heat. I have used a heat gun and/or an alcohol flame. You will also need to remove the wraps where they cover the ferrule tabs. You don't want to overdo the heat.
  19. Sounds like you enjoyed your trip through SE TX. On the Bolivar side of the Bay near the ferry landing is Fort Travis, which is just a fishing spot on the bay side, although I think they've cleaned it up a bit since '91. Fort San Jacinto on the tip of Galveston Island is on the opposite side of the bay from Bolivar, and I've only heard of it being a place for bird watching and other less noble activities, as you indicate. WRT Anchor Inn in Sabine Pass, I guess I missed that one while living in S. Carolina. Throughout the '60s and 70's the best buffet spot in Sabine was Sartin's, and

    Mabel's still not right.

    Man, I feel your pain. She's not only your pet but a hunting companion and a good one at that. Hopefully someone will be able to figure it out.

    The saying "be careful what you wish for." Describes my newest setter perfectly. As my aging but graceful setter neared retirement I took a retrospective look at of all thing things he did well and some areas he could improve - then bought according to what I THOUGHT I wanted in my next dog. I got everything I wanted out of this new dog, BUT as a result am faced with some unanticipated consequences. After taking a step back every single promise of this dogs pedigree is true and as advertised. - Highest prey drive I have ever seen in ANY setter, and I h

    I suspect it does well with disposing of the occasional dead body. That looks like you could do serious work if matched with a higher power weed whacker.

    Mustang Mach-E

    True. I applaud the effort to list the equivalent numbers for a EV based on across the board carbon-based fuel. For instance, an EV may be rated at 90 MPG as that would be what a gas powered vehicle would achieve for comparison. Reminds me of the term "3 drams equivalent" when describing the powder charge when going from black powder to smokeless. Nothing driving a motor is unencumbered from some energy source with the possible exception of a house that uses solar energy that also powers the battery on a car. There was a very interesting article by my favorite auto writer,

    All of my dogs are poop vacuums or efficient recyclers - you choose. It is disgusting and turns most people off from even petting them if they are aware of what they do because they are grossed out at the idea and think it must come out in there fur. I've tried all the tricks to curb this from pills and chews to pumpkin in their food, etc - they just don't stop. NASTY. If even one thing in their diet changes, like a special treat - I can guarantee that my dogs will be on a poop eating bender for the next day or so because they can smell that unique treat in the feces. Dogs are gross.

    Mine are more perfect than I am so I try not to be judgmental, other than barking that is the one thing that really bugs me and my male GSP is noisy, so is my chihuahua. My chihuahua humps every dog we have and they all tolerate for some reason. I guess they understand little man syndrome and cut him some slack. everytime I come home and they are all so happy to see me it just brightens up my life

    Annual Maine Spring Turkey Hunt Topic

    I couldn't get Sunday's midday hike out of my mind. Two gobblers sounding off on their own at noon. Dust on the haul road from too many wing drags. Looks like men lined up with rakes in the leaves. Tuesday dawned calm and clear as I made the walk in, uphill. The last incline to the listening spot is a buster. Seven topo lines high. My step quickened when I heard it. Up there floating over the top of the incline, a gobble. When I peaked the incline he was close, was just over the ridge on the west side. When he flew down, he went down the other side, gobbling all the way. In this time
