  1. Good morning, Blue Water.
  2. News reports indicate those were fatal attacks. 15 cougar non-fatal attacks had been reported in Washington State in the past century. 120 attacks, 25 of them fatal, were reported in the US and Canada in the past century. As one might expect, more attacks have been reported in Western U.S. and Canada over the past 20 years than in the previous 80 years. Not an encouraging trend. Be vigilant out there.
  3. More facts have started to emerge from this encounter....….perhaps some of us can learn from this tragic event as mountain lions make their way deeper into Western and Central MA. "As the two cyclist biked the foothills, they heard a scream from behind and looked back to see a cougar approaching them. The two tried to ride away from the cougar but realized they could not outpace an animal believed to be capable of running 30 miles per hour. The two then got off their bikes and shouted at the animal, and one swung a bike at it. It seemed to work, and the animal ran into the woods. But as they were about to leave, the cougar burst out of the woods and attacked one biker, latching onto his head and shaking him violently. At that point the second biker dropped his bike and ran away, but the cougar followed and killed him. The first biker pedaled 2 miles to get a cellular signal and called for help. Searchers found the cougar a short distance from the original attack site, standing over the second bikers body. A team of hunters were called in to track down and kill the animal."
  4. And remind Debbie........anyone gets hit, sing out. Slap iron to it. It's the fastest way to stop the bleeding.
  5. 2017 Charles River Watershed Association report says......... " fish that pass over the Watertown Dam continue their journey upstream in search of streams that feed into the Charles, such as Beaver Brook and Stony brook in Waltham and Fuller Brook, Rosemary Brook and Waban Brook in Wellesley. Some herring do not make it up to the Watertown Dam and instead swim up the Muddy River in Boston......"
  6. This AM Boston Globe: Cougar kills cyclist in Wash. state. One man was killed and another seriously injured when they encountered a cougar Saturday while mountain biking in Wash state. The two men were on a morning bike ride in the foothills near North Bend when the attack occurred. Authorities found the cougar standing over the body of the dead biker. Officers later tracked the mountain lion and shot and killed it.
  7. Most enjoyable time I spent with Ray was having breakfeast at "The Nook" with brother Ron and the rest of "The Nook" guys after one of many epic morning breaking tides. We shared lots of laughs, plenty of story telling and just plain joking around after a hard 2-3 hours of early AM fishing. His presence and smile will be missed.........my condolences to the Arra family.
  8. Amen. Glad you and David enjoyed the day!
  9. Whoa.....can't never forget something like that.
  10. My history is a little hazy Cassius, but shouldn't the Barbarians lose the battle of Carthage?
  11. Dyin' ain't much of livin', boy.

  14. Sounds like the "best deal" did not include an inflation escalation clause. That is unfortunate. Once the new company signed the documents it's doubtful they will subsequently not honor it.
  15. Charlie must be climbing the walls and clawing at the door.
