  1. Enjoy it, it will be hard to top that next year!
  2. It wasn't a total loss for her. We did 3 days together, then she sent me out on an overnighter but she went to a weekend Native festival which she thoroughly enjoyed. Then it was off to Alaska which she loved and the back was okay by then. :)
  3. I would believe he would be option #3, they put a new goalie on a tryout contract.
  4. Those pics are not touched up...the colour is best on cloudy days.
  5. We have been to the Yukon several times but Alaska was new. My wife Leslie, hurt her back on an ATV ride in to a remote lake so that stopped fishing for about a week. We only fished together 2 days of the nine days in the Yukon. She insisted I do an overnighter alone so I got an extra two days in. Climate change is messing things up...they only had four inches of snow all winter and most of that was in April. One lake was so low that most of the pike habitat was dry land. The water level was down about 5 feet. Drought is a new problem up there. Best part of the trip fishing wise was casting for lakers in 10 ft of water. They were basically all the same size but we had three solid hours of catching. Really you don't go to the Yukon to catch the biggest fish although there are some big ones there, you go for the setting. You are just smiling casting into this water.
  6. Contracts have never been really tied to playoff wins. Half the teams don't make the playoffs, contracts have always been tied yearly stats. Trades are more a measurement of character.
  7. Of all the Bull going on that is what you focus on? This is Boston's style of game, but they can dish it out but can't take? Booh hoo
  8. Nice to see the spring pike posts. That damn winter is over!
  9. That is reasonable, but I would go onto to say they got beat by a better team. Boston didn't just luck into 3rd place, especially when healthy they had an an excellent record. Remember that most pundits not connected to the Toronto market predicted Boston would win.
  10. Really? first off GST is 13%, is this all a taxation issue? It doesn't sound like it at all. It's wrong to put this all on healthcare. Basically as a country we pay less for healthcare and get much more for what we pay for on average then the US. So, you can pay with taxes or pay more later. When is the last time you heard that a family in Canada went bankrupt because their mom had cancer? I am glad I don't have to run every medical thing through an insurance company and hope that the claim doesn't get rejected or the the co-pay is thousands of dollars. How many people are uninsured in Canada? I for one don't want to live in a country where people die because it is more important to cut taxes on services regardless of the human cost. Yes you pay more tax in Canada. We get a lot more in Canada too. Education for instance...we have a much better education system. While the US pays more then any other country in the world on education it is lower middle of the pack in results. Want to send your kid to college or university in the states? You may end up paying several hundreds of thousands of dollars. Then there is safety net...ours is working much better so crime rates are much lower pretty well in every category compared to the US. People live longer in Canada. Canadians are a lot happier then Americans simply because things are as they are supposed to be...and not f-ed up.
  11. That coming from a faceless silhouetted dude with 1500 posts, yet your last fishing report was about bottom feeders back in 2015. That about says it all. Go catch a fish for God's sake or get laid by whatever species you tend to lay with!!
  12. Sportsnet did a piece with all their analysts weighing in on who they thought would win each series. I'll grant you that the majority picked Boston but there was a sizable minority that picked Toronto for this series. If I had to bet, I'd bet the Leafs lose. There is a reason Boston is ahead in the standings. But anything can happen in a 7 game series so if you gave me two to one on the Leafs then I would take that bet.
  13. The water and nature are calming...fishing just puts you out on the water for the day with a purpose!
  14. Everything is easier to arrange down there. You can try texting him...remember they use their phones pretty well exclusively. That he reached out to you by email is saying something. They do everything on their phone but it is still pretty primitive down there. You will notice that if you pay to go on the internet at the resort...Dial-up speeds. Also the Cuban government is probably not keen on making international communication easy. Get a plan through your phone company so that you can use your phone down there. Text...phone. If that doesn't work get a local to do it for you. They will be very pleased to help you. Flies...glitzy flies in small minnow shapes work. Think party colours or pastels. Black and dark earth tones...only in low light. When do you go?
  15. Matt, you need a hobby...stamp collecting or toy trains? It’s gonna be a LOOONG while till your team sees any playoff hockey!🙃 I would just stop watching any hockey all together, check the newspapers every three years or so to see if the Sens have turned it around,...you’re getting dark and I remember you before this negative obsession got the better of you.
