    Comment


    • Ha...funny, I enjoyed class. Was attentive, enjoyed learning, got great grades, earned an engineering scholarship.....then ****** it all up. Funny how life never seems to go the way you would expect. But there is happiness out there for everyone, if you are willing to grab it when you spot it an never let go.

        • The amazing thing is how quickly I ****** it all up. Started early, before I technically graduated high school and it was all gone before the fall semester ended.

              yes many times man my favorite way to fish... I use to build ice fishing traps in my spare time .. Last year was the first year I couldn't fish "sucks" I can't take the cold it affects my breathing to much.. I'm gonna try again this year even if I can't fish I'll have just as much fun watching, spending time with friends and staying close to the heater...lol

              this was many years ago but all I could find I got a can of beer going so pre- 89 lol.. I can tell by the hat "white lagging glue all over it " I was working at the shipyard so 80 ish I started ice fishing been going every year since



              plaid was in

                That's sounds awesome, I never have, this may sound foolish but I've always been worried about the ice breaking.

                  English was my worst class but I got passing grades but I didn't try very hard ..the rest I was around a b average student...

                    Started in mechanical and was going to double major with nuclear. Well that was the plan anyway.

                      I struggled with most subjects. I went to a great school for engineering but my major was criminology lol. Not much use for that degree

                          I no longer need to go ice fishing. My refrigerator has an ice maker now, much easier.

                              there is an old saying an inch of black ice will hold up a team of horses... black ice is clear ice that you can see through .. I have had my pickup on 4 inches of black ice...I probably wouldn't do that today but 8 inches no prob .. Don't do anything crazy man, but 4 or 5 inches is plenty to hold you up
