Cool piece. Going through my books looking for reference on something else I found this intro. Not much info but it will give you some background. It came from the Collectors Auction book, they are no longer in business and I don't know where the owner is.
I took some pics and pieced it together, not the best but better then nothing I guess.
It has been a busy week for me so far, I am glad it is just about over with. The weather has finally turned for the better, looks like pretty much all the snow we got last weekend is gone. Bobbie and I are heading out to the cabin this weekend, looks like 60's are possible!
Morning all! Daily temps are in the 40's now and I fear it spells out the demise of all the ice on our lake! It will take at least a week to deteriorate it to the point where its unsafe for travel, but we have sure gotten a great extended ice fishing season out of it! We should be able to get a couple more days in before the sun destroys the composition of the ice. I guess if the ice was there all year around, I wouldn't get anything done! LOL Heres a picture of two nice walleye's that the Warden and I caught on Tuesday night. Both are 24 inchers, and we release everything over 20 inches. The best eaters are between 16 and 20 inches and we believe those big fish are needed to keep the fishery going! Have a great day on me!!--KEVIN
Morning all. Same weather in this corner of Missouri as Jim's neck of the woods. Not too bad with the sunshine. Got notice that the new gas tank for my boat was shipped today so I need to get the rest of the prep work done on the hull for that. Had to cut the floor out to replace the tank, not very much fun. The way they build boats amazes me. Nobody figures on ever replacing many components I guess. It's the same workmanship I see on most RVs too. You have to be pretty handy to own either or maintenance costs will take the fun out of it real quick. But here I am, proud owner of several so no use griping. Have a great day......GB
Another morning starting in the 30s, but at least it's above freezing. Partly sunny going to the mid-50s. Yesterday was very windy, today not so much.
Maureen starts today doing the prep work for the big community fried chicken dinner after church on Sunday. I'll be without adult supervision most of the daylight hours from now through the weekend. What could happen?
