  1. While I wasn't there I know the story. Glub stayed at the bar ( The old Alantic) and the dude came in. Glub dragged (maybe promised him beers) to Steve's room. Knocked and Steve let Glub in with his friend. Thus the picture. SIM was not happy. We have spoken about this many times. It is still one of my favorite pictures od the night. lOL
  2. Dude, how have you and yours been? It's been WAY too long.

      Hi Andy,

         Things are good!  Retired from school to make a go of my own business full time and it’s been crazy but excellent.  I do miss having the chance to take kids fishing and getting them terrorized on the beach by SOL members though. :)
       

      I hope you and your family are well.  

  3. I've had more than a few to celebrate Steve's passing. While I celebrate Steve's passing I would be remiss if I didn't point out why he and a few others were not posting. They were fed up with the Tavern. The attacks on him and others while amusing were not warranted. Yeah, I know it's a fishing site and we're all supposed to be and accept ball busting. Steve was unbelievable in his acceptance of this. He rolled on so much chit that was pushed on him. I understand that Tim needs and wants posts and the Tavern drives that. But us old heads are here for the friendships that we developed during the time he was growing the site. I have a bunch from here and I thank Tim for the site for this. Why do none of the old guys post? Pretty easy. They don't want to get involved with the negativity of the new world here. I have had many conversations with the fabric of the site. Plug, Bill Klein, SIM, Derf, Ben Lippen, Striper Realser... among others. I understand posts drive the site, while certain areas have driven the old heads away. What do you want? A fishing site or and internet site? This was not easy to post, I'm not one to piss on a friend. But those that have gone before me went silent. They didn't post why they were gone from SOL. Maybe we're just too old and don't like the new stuff that sells. I'm not sure..... But I miss my old friends that are still alive that don't visit any longer. Tim I apologize and am sorry for the rant. You know I love the place, you and Carole. Maybe it's the booze or it's not. But it drove a lot of good people away. I read and post occasionally, this was my go to 15 years ago. It's not now. If I'm wrong please let me know. If I'm not let Tim know. Be well and be safe.
  4. I received the call and voicemail, I called back and I don't know what stopped me but I was going to say .... At least you're alive. After him giving me a hard time the last time I called him last week. I didn't, I'm not sure why but. She was broken up, said it was too fresh. She said she called someone else (you) and I told her I would post it and inform SOL people and those he visited and fished with.
  5. Received 2 yesterday.
  6. Yep, he had a hole in his exhaust. Found a can, and 2 clamps. Fixed It's probably on the car today.
  7. I just got into my work computer and found this gem.
  8. I couldn't think of a better tribute. Nice job John O' and Tim.
  9. And then he scrapped the side of the Volvo running it down the driveway.
  10. I did a search today too. I was wondering when the first one was.
  11. Well said Boss. He was a good friend that I met here on SOL. I am thankful to have known him. I will miss our conversations. Hang in there. I've never been to the Ditch. I may have to make plans for this Fling.
  12. RIP SiM
  13. One of my first internet friends from SOL. A good guy, very intelligent and as weird as they came. Some of the **** he did and had to put up with was unbelievable. As a lot have said his "Tales & Lies" were good fun. He never wrote any of that **** down just remembered it. Showerhead, fixing the muffler with a can out of the trash, fillet bluefish on the trunk of the Volvo, counting the steps, locking me out of my Jeep at the inlet. All good times.
  14. I received a call and voicemail. When I called him back Donna answered the phone. She informed me that Steve passed away yesterday. It was upset she said it was still fresh. He was a good friend and a good man. Rest in Peace Steve. You will be missed.
