I used to keep a Sears catalog in the outhouse.

This was supposed to be simple.

Can't help you with the battery issue but as for getting old, like we say in the morgue, "Getting old is (fill in the blank), but it sure beats the alternative."

Hatfield and McCoys

I watched the first ten minutes and turned it off. There's nothing that turns me off more than a faked southern accent, and Hollywood can never seem to get that one right. To me, a faked southern accent is like fingernails on a chalkboard. I've lived in the south all my life and for the life of me I...

When was the last time you fell?

Many years ago some skydiving buddies and I were walking INTO (not out of) a bar after a hard day of skydiving. While headed to a table I managed to trip over a bar stool and fell flat on my face, breaking my big toe in the process. Five skydives that day from 12,000' and I managed to get banged up ...

You mean you wouldn't rather hear about Whitney Houston for another 5 or 6 weeks? Now she was a hero. ...................................NOT...................................

Read this guys.

These days we seem to use the word "hero" much too lightly and apply it to almost anyone who does anything out of the ordinary. This guy is what I think the true definition of a hero ought to be--one who does something far beyond what almost anyone else would do in similar circumstances and at grave...

Is your Tinboat also your "Lifeboat"?

Agreed. My boat was the only thing that got me through all the academic crap that went with getting my Ph.D. If not for that boat, I probably would have given my graduate committee half the peace sign, said "screw the dissertation, prelims, and orals", and walked away from it all.

what fishing apps?????

Roanoke is a bit far south for this app to be useful, but if you go farther north and are on the TVA river system, get the TVA River Info app (https://www.tva.com/river/mobile_app.htm). It's great for lake levels, when and how many generators are operating, etc.

First Aid Kit recommendations?

May I make a suggestion? Last year I managed to partially fillet my hand while sauger fishing, and for the life of me I couldn't get the bleeding stopped. And, as usual, I was fishing by myself making matters worse. Since I couldn't get the bleeding stopped I had no choice but to make a long run to ...

Got to play rescue boat tonight

As much as I try to help folks out whenever possible, particularly when something that couldn't be planned for goes wrong, this would probably be one of those times when I would not. As the saying goes, "Experience holds a dear school, but a fool will learn in no other." Sometimes this is the only w...
