  1. Thought so, but they're usually so much bigger, and furry
  2. Chuckie had a pair, Mama was run down by an automobile, so the pups were Chuckie's. They were allowed run of the house for a while. They get nasty during mating season.
  3. I live too close to Boston. I'd like to move to somewhere less crowded, to where I could pull out of my driveway or the end of my street without waiting for traffic to allow me to. I suppose if I had a WW2 tank I could just drive over the cars that block my street while waiting for the 30 or so in front of them to go through the distant red light. Alas, a granddaughter two towns away keeps us here.
  4. Sorry guys, It was me. I knocked my toolbox over. I'll try to be more careful.
  5. Is that a fish?
  6. Wait, you can fish at night? ...........but it'd be dark.
  7. Look here: https://www.stripersonline.com/surftalk/topic/749351-split-ring-in-a-tin-how-to/#comment-13768569
  8. Fences are traditionally located 3 feet inside the boundaries of the fence owners lot. Who owns the existing fence? I asked my neighbors if we could remove an ugly chain link fence between our front yards. They didn't want to and the ugly side was towards their house, so I figured it was their fence. After they moved away, the new neighbors said "Sure, pull it out". I checked my plot plan and it turned out that the fence was at least a foot onto my property. I removed the fence from the front yards and installed a "friendly neighbor gate" between our back yards
  9. They'll probably ignore your jigs and bite at the sinkers. Mmmmmmmm. yummy orange
  10. I had a friend in high school who's dad was a prankster. They'd give the little kids good stuff, and the big kids got ice cubes, bullion cubes, or eggs. After it got good and dark John's dad and uncle would sit on the dormers and throw eggs at the teenagers who came to egg the house for revenge.. EGG FIGHT!!!!
  11. We just had a spike in Covid cases in my town. They're going to close the High School. I haven't heard that Halloween is cancelled, but I bet we get less than 8 kids. It's always a hoot to see the neighborhood kids, but there aren't many left.
  12. I see your point, I go back and forth between a Fathom 12 and a wide spool Squidder 140, it isn't that hard
  13. I have tho old style Fathom12. I love it, but I use braid. I'd probably go with the 15 for mono. Also. you are used to thumbleveling the 15 width spool.
  14. A big piece of the problem is that the tests are not as accurate as we'd like them to be, So, the guy who tested positive might not have it, and some of those who "didn't get it from him" could actually be positive. I hate masks, but I wear one whenever I'm not going to be able to keep a good distance.
  15. I'm sure you look better with a mask Mike, so it's win win!!!
  16. The zombie craze was finally winding down, then these appear around the corner from my house, luckily, they seem to be friendly
  17. He added the Viet Nam era anti war attitude to the Korean War and was probably the worst Groucho impersonator ever. Watch the movie, skip the TV crap. Donald Sutherland was way better in the role anyhow.
  18. Lumber too, But eggs are up and down, not like building materials
  19. I have heard from people that I trust that there are good duo locks, but after losing plug after plug, I dropped all of mine into the Joppa Flats. I've been using Breakaways since they came out, never had a problem. I do know of two failures though, both with pencil poppers, one let go of the plug, the other bent enough to lose another, probably due to the crazy swinging of the pencil's nose.
  20. A spinning rod tends to have less eyes, since the rod will be bent down during the battle. The conventional has more, to distribute the force and keep the line from riding the blank. All of my conventional rods (10-11 feet) have 8 guides and a tip top. I can't count them on a spinner because I don't have any
