" it's going to be to rough out " … but you know for sure it will be flat calm , and it is.
"I only want to go if it' wfo, I heard it won't be"... they tell you this about 10 hours before you're ready to leave.

I have to walk my daughter's dog

Seriously his daughter makes $1000,000/year and can hire a dog walker all day long.

Last year the same guy told me his father was dying then when he phoned after the trip he let slip the old man was still driving himself around town-not on his deathbed or anywhere near it.

Here to tell you that you can't even buy a great fishin' buddy. I've had two now that have gone on to the Great Pond in the Sky. I miss them more than I hope you will ever know...

It was 6:30 am during a trout tourney at Irvine Lake, so I open the door to my buddies motorhome to find him making soup and blabbing on the cellphone with who the hell knows/cares.

He hollers at me, "CLOSE THE DOOR, YOU'RE LETTING ALL THE HEAT OUT!!!"

I headed out in the rain and won 1st place with a 5 lb. rainbow.

His cousin was stuck with him for the rest of the day.
