and how fast a sleep you are at a comp
Bubba was snoring so bad at Franklin one year it sounded like a bunch of Harleys

Hello GIRLS,,one other helpful bit is to season your wood in whatever size she's grown,,then after she's seasoned cut into bite size pieces a day or 2 b4 your cook and let airate on the lawn,if ya ain't got a lawn then your neighbors roof through your attic window.,,D.Klose mentioned that on his site years ago and i figured he's always right and he was.

Well I am sure glad to learn of that lawn aerating trick..did not know about that one. Thanks for sharing. Remember this: Your buddy takes you to the nurse..the nurse takes you to medic who patches you up and takes you back to the boat? You ever hear that ditty or a reasonable facimile thereof?

Lawn aerating or roof aerating is pretty much the same,just the roofin is sooner due to the closeness, Bigwheel,this is the only time you ever made me not in compliance with your thoughts,,basically i mean that i always was prolly the only person or 6 that understood you,hey!thanks for the reminder!,,,i have to be up northerly way as i'm guiding muskie and you just reminded me.My bet is you'll make sense about noon tomorrow when i'm pulling out 3 oughts out of the japs who need a fly sperience.

John, take a look at the time he posted? By 12:30, he's been pretty well into the Ezra Brooks (Bourbon!) That is the way I sounded last Friday night at Q-festivus!

Yeppers Uncle Bubba...believe thats it. You the only one to solve the mystery. Your budddy takes you to the nurse..the nurse takes you to the medic who patches you up..the corpsman takes you back to the boat. Thanks Now as regarding the time I didnt get off work till 11 PM and been outta Ezra for a month. I got to make a trip. Thanks for the reminder.

It just a simple test to see who has been talking to Dave Klose late at night Hey we got Muskies down here..cept we call em needle nose gar. Maybe you get a gig down here one day. I show you how to catch em.

We have gar pike which is probably the same as your needle nose gar,and there no where near a muskie,woman catch those on a harness with livebait,the ss wire wraps around the teeth and they haul them out,didn't we go thru this once already?
Nobody talks with D.Klose at night,,all night makes more sense,hey that could be the test,someone says they talked at night with D.klose and you know he's fullofit.
