Some Things I Do When I'm Not Posting on CF Numerous Times Daily


Hobby Time.

First things First. Find yourself some green hams and clean them up good. I like 25 pounders, during the cure they will shed about 25% of their weight.



Then you build a suitable box, maple and oak work best but poplar will do. This one is on its 7th year and holds 150 pounds of hams pretty good.




Then you rub them down good with the secret sauce, place in the box, and cover with more curing stuff.








Then, just Shut the box up and wait...

Hey, you never did mention where ya got the walleye from. Man I'd love to be able to have a basement. Not so much the snow, but the Wife would be in her glory playing in it. This was from our last big snow



This is why I no longer wear a metal wedding band. Dang near lost my finger.



My future deer stand observation platform, wife won't let me shoot deer close to the house.



When a brake caliper sticks and makes the rotor get very hot..



My Fathers day shotgun from the kids last year..



Couple of "pretty" pics I love the blooms on our Tulip Tree. They really blend in on the tree, until you look at it close.



My mom and Dad last year when they could attend Church, before China screwed the World. Dad will be 88 this year and mom just turned 82.

Yep your lucky.
Had a dumpster driver years ago. Jump out of his truck and rip his finger off. Finger was just hanging there by some tendons.
I wrapped it.l was going to take him to the hospital. He didn't want me to and drove himself.
He was back to work in a week. He told me he tried to come back the next day but they wouldn't let him. Couldn't put it back there was too much damage at the hand.


I am fragile.
Not like a flower.
But like a bomb.

Man I don’t know what a level 4 fish is, but I do know a nice walleye. And those are nice! Dang I need to come up your way! Last one I caught was using some monstrous leeches many years ago about 2000 miles from here. No hauler, have a cdl but seldom have a use for it.

Ha, leeches. I haven't hooked a leach in a long time,,,,,brings back some good memories.

I too have a CDL, and don't get to use it much anymore either. It has saved me more than one ticket over the years by some late night cop telling me he doesn't want to punish me because I drive commercially. I was actually asking OTC about being a hauler because of the driver story.

So anyway, the level 4 fish thing. In my observations over they years I realized there were 4 Levels of progression in most every fishermans life. My friend Tunanutt taught me there are actually 5, and at the time I was too busy chasing 3's and 4's that I never considered the 5th level. Good stuff.

Level 1 is Any Fish. A guy starts fishing and catching any fish gives him a rush.

Level 2 is Many Fish. A guy starts fishing and gets the bug. All of a sudden he wants to catch a lot of fish.

Level 3 is Big Fish. A guy starts catching a lot of fish and then all he wants is Big Fish. This is where he gets addicted to clickers clicking and drags screaming.

Level 4 is Hard Fish. A guy starts catching some bigger fish and then wants to branch out to catch critters that other folks usually can't. A challenge to himself so to speak.


It seems theres always another level, no matter the endeavor.

I can see those levels. I got burned out a few years ago and don’t bother with it much, same with deer hunting. As long as I can catch a mess of keepers for supper I’m as happy catching a mother in law fish as anything. I guess I’ve reverted back to level 1. I can even release fish now without feeling bad.

So what’s this level 5 about?
Fire them rigs up. We'll show them what a real Smokey and the bandit is.. hahaha
