Restore Your Faith in Humanity in 4 Minutes Flat!

 

Yup, you can do it.  I can't post the URL without it being taken down so just Google the above line.  The first one that comes up, at least on Google Chrome, should be the right one.  It's on "The Good News Network."

 

It's quite wonderful.  A bunch of animal--and human--rescues.  You'll love it.

Quoting fishyme:

   Pat, Baseball is the only sport that I can set and watch an entire game. 99% boredom and 1% excitment, when you hear that crack of the bat, well, it just kinda hard to put in words.

 

 

  The summer has been good so far, thank you. I was going to have been off on another fishing trip by now but one of my routine inspections found that I had a small amount of gasoline under my deck. It was not there 3 months ago and the only choice that there is is to cut the deck out.

 

 

  To stay alive on a gas boat packing 250 gallons there is one question you never want to have to ask yourself.          " Why does my boat smell like gas? "   If you have to ask that question then you Must Do Whatever It Takes To Find The Answer!

 

 

  I cut my deck out and replaced $9.12 worth of double wall gas line, the other one was 20 years old.

 

 

   Ofcourse,      While I was chopping my little boat up I wanted new fishholds, good thing a friend of mine is a commercial boat builder. I sadden when I recall me saying that I'd do the work myself.  "Don" he said, "The shops empty, you go ahead and use anything in there and as much as you need."

 

 

  My boats fiberglass and it is Horrible to cut and sand and grind. After him doing it for the last 34 years no wonder the shop was empty, lmao.

 

   I'm really happy that I smelled gas [found about 2 oz], being forced to do gas line repairs I get to redo fishholds and modernize at the same time. I hated my fishhold, ewww!



What are you fishing for, and where? Are you fishing the Coast of Alaska? Hope you provided for  change of that Gas line, I once worked in a Busch plant, in Houston, in thedistillary section...30 degree's. We had Rigid oiler lines(threading), that disintegrated, with the temp. That's a typical day in Alaska. How are those,"Momma Grizlie's", doing up there? I guess, if you look west some night, you will see firework's in Ukraine,Korea,Russia...Those Momma Grizlie's...http://youtu.be/042b17KpvrM

SOOO glad you found that gas leak, Don.  We might have been reading your obit otherwise.  Sorry you had to do all the work for a $9.12 double wall gas line, though.  But you got your fishhold the way you want it.  So that's a big plus.

 

I know fiberglass is a lot easier to maintain on a routine basis than wood, but I also know what an awful job it can be to cut into it when you have to do some major overhauling.  Glad you got it done.  I'm sure you're a lot happier now.

 

I trust you'll be off on another trip soon.  Here's hoping it's highly profitable.

 

BTW, I never thought to ask before.  To whom do you sell your fish?  Local restaurants or large packaging plants?  And what kind of fish do you usually catch?  "Inquiring minds want to know."  LOL  Any wild salmon you might catch you can send my way for sure!!! 

 

Hope this summer you get to catch some of those baseball games you enjoy so much.  The only time I followed baseball was when my late boyfriend, a died-in-the-wool Yankees fan, was watching them.  I enjoyed watching my boyfriend reacting to the game more than I enjoyed the actual game.  Many, many years ago a friend took me to a game at Yankee Stadium.  We couldn't see a thing.  She figured out what was going on, but I was completely clueless.  I think it's better on tv--and a lot cheaper.

 

Here's to a fine and profitable harvest!!!

LMAO @ 3 bear cubs in a dumpster! The guy catching ducklings must have played baseball, outfielder I'd say.



LOLOL.  I don't know much about baseball, so I can't comment on that outfielder thing.  But glad you enjoyed it, Fishy. 

 

Hope you're doing well this summer!!!
