  1. Wow ... Chicago Bill and his white van with Illinois plates was always a fixture each fall . . . really nice guy and sad to see a good one pass on.
  2. Okay Josie . . . did someone get killed after you spit?
  3. Happy BD, make it great!
  4. Handled it a bit better how?
  5. “He (God) gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:29-31)
  6. MC Hammer . . . What was he thinking MC," for "Master of Ceremonies," and performed at various clubs when the A's traveled out of town. It was also during this time that he acquired the nickname "Hammer," for his resemblance to home-run king Hank "The Hammer" Aaron.
  7. I believe if you fish long enough you'll have stories of the big ones that were lost . . . only one I wish I had a second shot at was on an offshore trip. Bluebird day, trolling for tunas and had one yft in the box . . . we were running naked bally on the flats when one of them got knocked down and next thing a 1000+ blue comes tail dancing across the surface within 100' of the boat. Had that fish on for about 3-5 minutes and pulled the hook . . . still have a vivid image of that watching the sun glisten off the broad silver sides of that monster.
  8. Thought the same thing, but noticed people waiting in line to be seated. Probably makes sense at that point . . . IDK I always try to find logic in absurdity
  9. Happy BD!
  10. Prayers for Diane Jimmy . . .
  11. Thought the same thing and looked it up . . . Stargazer (fish) ... Stargazers are venomous; they have two large venomous spines situated behind their opercles and above their pectoral fins. The species within the genera Astroscopus and Uranoscopus can also cause electric shocks.
  12. This must be his pastor: https://www.npr.org/sections/codeswitch/2020/06/12/699611293/jesus-was-divisive-a-black-pastor-s-message-to-white-christians
