  1. Happy Birthday bro. Slow down man or you will be catching up to me. I hope your day goes well and maybe you can get out and pick up a few. (Nuggies that is.) Old Tom
  2. I'm not biting bro. Been seriously ill for the last six months and Doc says to save my breath for when I really need it. This is not a valid subject to expound upon so you and I can just agree to disagree.
  3. Oh no, Don't think that I'm dumb enough to fall for his troll line, Morlock. Old Tom
  4. I gave up Pro Football because of this. I haven't watches a game since that no good commissioner refused to do anything about this atrocity. There are too many 'Americans' who either go along with them or are too apathic to the situation to do anything about it. I for one will not support the NFL in any way as long as they condone this kind of behavior in public. Old Tom
  5. One has to be very careful about selecting a repellent. Many are allergic to 'DEET'. It can raise heck with your breathing and such. Try it before going out in the field. You don't want to have a allergic attack alone out there. Has anyone had any experience with New Jersey mosquitos? I spent a lot of time in the Pine Barrens, and there they argue just where they are going to eat you. They might take you to the lake or into the swamp. Old Tom
  6. Have a happy day today Homie. Celebrate safely bro. Old Tom
  7. Happy Birthday bro. Old Tom
  8. Got it Tommy, be there. Old Tom
  9. Sorry to hear of your family disappointments, I hope in your future you find more compassionate and forgiving folks to abide with. Sometimes it only takes one person or one unkind word to set someone of on a lifetime of uncertainty. May your future be blessed bro. Old Tom
  10. Have a happy one today, Frank. Old Tom
  11. Yeah, but they stink...……………………. Old Tom
  12. Who didn't want to look like 'Charles Atlas? He was just a little skinny kid that the girls all ignored, but when that big brute kicked sand in his face he bought a 'Dynamic Tension' kit and changed his life forever. He kicked hat tough guys butt and lived happily ever after with all those good looking girls.
  13. Happy Birthday bro...…... Old Tom
  14. I'll never forget an experience that my work partner and I had back in 1966. We were checking some telephone manholes for air leaks along Litchfield Rd. outside of Luke Air Force Base. I pulled the lid on a hole to be inspected and dropped a air mic similar to the ones used by the Air Force to detect leaks in aircraft. I heard a hissing and Sherman Booth my partner, dropped down into the hole and I bent over to see what he was going to do. All of a sudden he came flying out of that man hole like he had wings. He ripped off his headset and kept yelling snake, snake. I very carefully peered down into the manhole and saw a gopher snake laying on a cable splice with mouth wide open and hissing at me. That critter was really pissed off at us but he didn't strike at Sherm or me at all. We pulled the lid and figured to leave him to his domain of scorpions, vinegaroons, and lizards. I guess he crawled down the little hole that you pull the lid open with when he was a little bugger. Sherm was always a slow moving fellow and nothing bothered him much, but I did see another side of him that day. The reason I mentioned his name is that he was one of the few survivors of the sinking of the USS Indianapolis at the end of wwII. He is in the survivor list on the internet but I think that most of those guys are gone by now. There are a couple of fine films out about that tragedy if you are interested. Old Tom
  15. Forgot just what this thread was about. Hijackers often won't start a thread of their own but bully their way into another's. I didn't know this about the rattles on snakes but I'm glad that they are there no matter how they work. I mostly see the snakes before they do their thing but I'm a slow hunter and pick my way through the brush. Has anyone run into a whole passel of snakes in the act of mating and such? That's kind of unnerving as you don't know just how far into it you have ventured. Old Tom
  16. Have a good one today Shep. You still haven't caught me yet. Old Tom
  17. Happy Birthday bro. Wishing you all the best. Old Tom
