We has a big framed pic of the catch including the Capt, mate, and self. Capt Dave hasn't responded to our xmas cards for the last 3yrs now. We got along great and I made a few meat runs with him mwa being the mate whereas no screwing around playing the fish for sport but rather the fish were intended solely for selling to restaurants so; "Reel em in as fast as you can Al before they get off!"

Where'd OldDave go Splatz?
Good inquiry. Probably needed a mental vacation from RFC ASAP as some of us have required from T2T.

'natch, but aside from being well read Keyser's strength was improv and weaving it all together to convince them he (Keyser) didn't exist.

Actually, it was one step better than that, wasn't it? Keyser didn't convince them. Instead he carefully set the stage so they would convince themselves.

63F today (so far), the air quality is starting to suffer from all the smoke.
Things are a little hazier than normal
Got rain forecast for the weekend, it should clear the air, I hope...

Got several junior mergansers catching fishies

Ah...yes. There is no greater deception than when we deceive ourselves.

My uncle Don put a stop to shark fishing from USN Destroyers in the Caribbean. He had made some large hooks up in the machine shop and was using chicken halves for bait. Landed s few 5-6’ sharks and broke the cable he was using for line on larger shark tied to railings. Found some larger cable and ripped railings from the ship. Of the smaller sharks landed the skipper didn’t much care for them flopping around on deck snapping at people. The missing railings were the last straw😎

Smoke and ash particles are tearing this Yooper family up with sinus infections and burning eyes. Wife had to get on antibiotics last week, now youngest daughter has sinus infection. I started her on my script for Flonase and Claritin this morning which I only take when needed. It’s required with the haze that surrounds us now.
