  1. Yea, a real tuff guy. Assaulting a little girl. A bully. What he did is an assault punishable by prison time, and not a few months it can be more than a few years. He's the kind of man that will cry like an infant baby saying he's "sorry" be fore a Judge sentencing him. Yea he sorry for getting busted and that's all. Unlike how I might have reacted if I was there a few years ago today I wouild act differently as long as I saw the young worker was no longer in danger. I would have followed him to his vehicle and took a pic of his plate, at a minimum he and or his car. If the authorities wanted to find this guy they would but doubt they would. I'm sure they checked security cameras in the area, one can't relieve themselves behind the bushes, anywhere, they is bound to have a security camera taking his pic. I have to stop typing now before I get myself in trouble. If every food service employee could I.D. this scum I would think he will never order food again in his lifetime. Punishment should not exceed the crime. Spit by a dozen or so waiters/waitresses/cooks/cashiers/owners/managers of a restaurant should never spit in a customers food. That's a lot of spit ypu scum, enjoy. Some tough guy this piece of____ is.
  2. How many teeth can you buy for the price of your toys? Listen to me I sound like my father 40 some odd years ago. I know it's fun now but like many seniors they are kicking themselves today thinking about what they could have done with that "toy" money 40 years ago. My buds were buying toys and I was buying boring houses. I retired at 45 and some of them are still working today paying for toys they scraped years ago. Have fun but be smart G.
  3. My wife and I attended another one of our God Daughters weddings yesterday, they both looked like they stepped off a wedding cake, handsome and beautiful. My brothers youngest, maybe the last in my lifetime. My wife and I aren't the only ones that gained weight in the last 2 years, 22 months since I saw one brother and S-I-L as well as many, many others. I asked him if he slept with his dogs the night before. I had to explain it to whom ever was within earshot. His hair is almost completly white now . It was a strange day. My wife pointed out we were all cramed into a small chappel, as we emerg from C-19 protocol there will be strange days ahead. I could not believe the number of morbidly obese kids under 40 that attended, most under 30. Not good. Of course there was bacon everywhere.
  4. I've been MIA, the rescue mission was short lived and when it turned into a body retreival nobody showed up. Seriously though I've been trying hard to reduce the 25 pounds I gained eating like a swine did to me during this pandemic that we are all trying to deal with as I swear every recipe on this thread has bacon in it. All those Docs on CNN and others say even over the next 10 years our hospitals will still be overloaded with all the patients that gained poundage, a meteoric increase in stroke and heart decease associated with eating bacon. I saw bacon flavoured ice cream at our County Fair this past Saturday. I had the bacon Funnel Cake, mmmmmm. I have pretty well every pair of lounge wear pants they make. Johnny D/Selkirk On.
  5. My 50/50 USA born Italian Ma, Zia's and 100% Italian Nona's took the time to make 1/2 diameter mini meatballs, maybe 100 for a family sized Lasagna we took on any given summer Sunday picnic to Long Beach on Lake Erie or one of the mini lakes on highway 6 north. 2 massive Lasagnas for dinner, around 5 PM, lunch was as soon as we landed all the Pontiac and Chevy wagons. BBQ'd sausages and peppers on crusty panini, hot dogs and burgers for the little ones. Dad had a 59' Chevy wagon that held more people than some airplanes. 3 adults and 1 infant in the front seat, 3 adults and 1 infant in the ,idlle seat, 3 children and 1 small Grandmother in the traffic facing 3rd row. That be 12 humans in 1 big arse car. The prosetion was more than 3 people movers. Did I say 2 massive Lasagna? How about 3 or 4. I hoped 4 because I loved cold Lasagna for breakfast before school. I still love it. Here is a recipe for disaster, put any 2 or more women in a kitchen and ask them which recipe is best. My former wife had the audacity to ask that question of 4 of the ladies. Lucky I was within ear shot and changed the question to which of these 2 TV chefs is best? Still not good but not the start of a vendeta! I know you guys must miss me.
  6. Like Fisherman said no more than anually, but maybe less than you think depending on your return on investment depending on what you did with it. I made 21% a week on mine, errrrrr I mean 2%, yea 2% anually not weekly.
  7. My dear departed Uncle used to put the stickers on the side of the fridge so he didn't lose it. If a Cop stopped him he told them it must have fallen off. Prove it couldn't.
  8. I wrote that this past Feb. I walked 3 K's Monday pain free. I bought a new pair of sneakers that morning, Sketchers, when I tried them on they felt so good I wore them out of the store. My legs were killing me went we went into the store, I did 3 lengths of Eastgate Mall in Hamilton after that with what I consider zero pain. Then in the early evening walked 2 K's. This is the 1st time I paid more than a 100 beans for a pair of shoes. I'm told by others that price is on the low end for new kicks. I had to return there this AM and looked in Foot Locker at running shoes, there was 1 pair for more than 150 bucks, wow. I have to tell you guys almost as old as I and has leg pain for any reason you get what you pay for. I am giving these 4 months then will reasess the need for a new pair. Johnny D/Selkirk On, home of the new flashing 4 way stop. I have no idea where this post is supposed to go. I might not think clearly but I got a new pair of shoes. I think?
  9. Did I say 5 to 8 lbs. Certainly closer to 5 than 8. To be exact cut your fish in 2 and count the rings.

    I had to back to read what I said. My comment wasn't directed towads you it's something I have said since the interweb came out.
  11. Just remember there is a 30% CDN federal tax on sales of property in Canada owned by foriegners. A freind of mine from Western NY got a rude awakening when he sold the family Lake Erie cottage a few years back. The family has owned it since just after WW2, more American owners than Canadians there, it's just across the Buffalo, Ft. Erie border. Heck it's called The Buffalo Yaght Club. I'm sure a good accountant may have a few loop holes up his or her sleeve.
  12. Prices are getting rediculous by the day here. We turned down $530,000 for our cottage on Lake Erie last summer. I was told we were crazy not to take it. A similar cottage 3 doors down from ours same size, similar features, on the waterfront was listed at $1,000,049 last month!!! I don't know what they got 4 days latter but it sold fast. Another place across the road from the beach previously owned by a freind is listed at $1,490,000. It's a 1200 square foot3 bedroom 1 bath Viceroy with several small rooms. Wowza, I hope they get it. Ours is going on the market ASAP.
  13. See a lawyer. I wouldn't take advise for a medical or legal issue on a fishing forum. Good luck. Common sense doesn't seem to matter in our legal system. That's an opnion not legal advise. Opinions are like butts, everyone has one.
  14. My original question was answered as I expected, since then the "things" that have changed my life is my utter frustration with those that are addiment "NO VAX" people. If you want to kill yourself, go ahead, I'll drive you to the top of a bridge but don't think you are taking us with you. I have several no vax freinds and relatives, some have a semblance of intelligence. I want to throttle them. We may never recover from this unless they wake up or die wishing they weren't so stuborn. Covid saved many family members from forced socializing with each other and pretend everything is just peachee. That may be a positive for some, maybe most. Drifter Dave, I haven't been here for a while, I am so sorry you are in bad shape, still. I am no Dr. or scientist but based on what I have learned about Covid-19, I think you did get it. I hope you are in your remote cabin, spending as much time there as possible, if the place isn't 100% finished to your specs please do not sweat it. If it's livable, live there. It was pre covid my health went for a s*&^. so I was in the mindset do what you can now, what was I waiting for? My wife to retire actually and now we can't take that Eurpean trip, then buy a place in South West USA for winters, I'm arthritic head to toe which isn't an imbellishment, I have it in my neck and right foot. It doesn't look like we are going together anywhere anytime soon, not even to Buffalo. Why wait, do it now.
  15. Flex, the boat is well past it's best before date. Without looking at it at that price I would pass. If you think you may still be a customer for sure get it into a well respected marine shop. If the owner won't pay for the inspection I would pass for certwould expect it to be an hours worth of shop labour, around $115.00. Then a run in a body of water, leaking hulls don't show up running on a garden hose. For a few things to look forI would have the hull checked for gellcoat cracking. Check transom for cracking, rotting, seperation Pressure check each cylinder. Look for gunge in the bildge, may indicate leaks into boat. Check trailer suspension, cracks at seams, brakes, wheels and tires.
  16. Enjoy Dave congrats. I took early retirement 21 years ago at 45 years young. I went into a small business venture to see how others such as yourself lived. I'll take going in the plant on Sunday nights anyday.
  17. A good agent is hard to find. An actual human being on the other end of the line is a bonus. For a short period of time my business inherited an insurance provider that only spoke French and refused to speak English. They sure understood and spoke it when I cancelled the coverage. They were in the NFL, not for long.
  18. I would check with my insurance broker to ensure the rig is insured when someone without a valid license is driving it on private property. Many folks are unpleasantly surprised that although they pay for insurance they are in some cases not insured. Not just ATV's, their homes as well.
  19. 'm jealous dear Cliff. Looks like you are having a blast. You and I didn't have such things when we were kids, I was 16 in 70', yep sounds right. We had field bombs then, if you could find a field in Hamilton. I went havesies with my cousin that lived pretty close to Darien Lake in western New York, they had a few acres and all his pals had fields. We found a running 60 something Chevy station wagon we paid 40 bucks for, 20 each. I think I drove 4 laps around our makeshift Indy 500 oval, maybe 4 laps, that was 5 bucks a lap because the next time I went down there the field bomb was not there. 5 bucks a lap. I made 50 cents an hour pumping gas. 20 bucks was a weeks wages. Learned a good lesson, actually a few. edit: what kind of insurance do you need to cover your arse? I see a pal got one over the winter. All the bells and whistles. He showed me it was plated. I know he has been barred from getting a license anywhere in the World, Ontario for sure. He says he is insured, really? Without a valid drivers license? I don't know the answers thus I ask, do you need a license? He's 82 years young.
  20. For sure I can't find the white fire extinguisher for the boat. I'm not talking about physical things more about attitudes but I am still missing stuff. I am less tolerant, might it be my 66 1/2 years on Earth rather than a sequestered life? (sorry about no spell check) Actually I am not sorry spell check is off, or not simply turned on or whatever. I am becoming my 18 year old nephew, whatever. And I am fine with that. I finally broke down and got my debit card synched or whatever you call it to hook up the card to tap. And it works 5 out of 10 times I try to tap, touch, slide, swipe, do the circle tap, tap from 4 to 6 inches above, then the 8 inch dive bomb, finally the youngster says it might be me, yes it's you I know it's not me, I'm 50 years older than you and I know I'm doing it just how the other 15 year old taught me how, training is for Circus animals, of course you don't know what a circis is. I finally understood the kid or whomever, whoever or whatever handles the cash/card etc. less. (Don't pull out any Year Books from the early 70's, I think my hair was longer and my vision improved immensly once I had my bangs cut. As this decease is finally in or out of control somewhat so go our in or out of control brains. What, if anything have you lost. Former spouses included. Please can someone help me find spell check and turn it on. None of my many forums are spell checking, zero. I would appreciate any help.
  21. All good, Mr. Flynn however wins Joke of da Week hands down, maybe joke of da year so fars. How is it when I hear someone is from da rock I start talkin' like day talk for the next hour? At the plant those buys from down east blended all the English and even some Quebecois together, Newfouundland/Labrador, Nova Scotia wid sum of da penninsula, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island all togeder to make a single language not ever down homers can understand. That was fair. Good humour guys, thanks( opps,,,, tangs I needed it. Keep em comin' der me dear buys.
  22. We are talking about the batteries that cost a few bucks on the remote to run the elec. troller that with options and taxes might be close to $3000.00 are we not? Count enough pennies and one can spend more than 2 grand on an accessory I guess.
  23. Ceretainly no expert here but do know a few. For what it' worth one of the self appointed experts at the Dover Legion told me it's too hot and too early for this heat.
