  1. So i guess that is why my gramma bought me boxing gloves when I turned 12, hah, go figure , lol
  2. With all the searching and wondering about this watercraft, Lets not forget the reason WHY this is going on!!!! Lives were jeopardizes ...
  3. A boat of that size has to have a launch site , someone knows where it is. It has to be trailed into the area, someone knows when and where it came from. It has to be running on fuel , someone knows where the fuel is coming from, a boat that shape and size is just not the normal for this body of water. Some one knows a lot !!!!!
  4. That has got to a criminal offense for life endangerment at the very least, should have the boat impounded and lose his drivers licence to boot, what a jerk!!!!!!!!
  5. YES, It's put an entire new meaning to the phrase--------- what is your hitch "BALL SIZE".
  6. That roast beef looks great to me, Just pass the mashed taters and some gravy please, MMMMMMM and , looks like no dishes to wash and dry, lol.. gotta love paper plates..
  7. My favorite show was Red Fisher, he did not push products at you but rather encouraged you to go to the lodges and resorts he filmed his shows at, his guest's were well known folks like Gordie How, George Armstrong, Captain of the Leafs back in the day, Ted Williams of baseball fame, Alan Hale of Gilligan's Island fame and so on. Down to earth show and he was always at the Toronto Sportsman Show to sign autographs and chew the fat with you. I have lots of his old shows on VHS tape, and yes I still have a VCR, LOL..
  8. Great movie about bad cops and drugs, the BEST car chase scene ever, better than the one in Bullet. The ending will knock your socks off.. "To Live and Die in L.A."
  9. I started fishing when I was 5 years old, my boyhood chum had a grampa who took the 2 of us young guys out fishing a lot of times, We fished at Howdenvale just north of Wiarton, we had a spot known to the locals as 'the crib" , actually on old ship wreck of sorts. caught sunfish and perch but it was always fun. Later on as an adult, I read on magazine article called Flyfishing for Bass. That was it, I was hooked on it, Bass and a flyrod are like Peanut Butter and Jam, they really do belong together.
  10. Thanks for your input, greatly appreciated.🙂
  11. Hi Guys and Gals, I need a family recipe, easy cook recipe , My wife has Glaucoma and we would appreciate LARGE FONTS if you can please. Her vision is impaired . Scalloped Potatoes were her Grampa"s favorite-----mine to.
  12. Terrible tragedy, just imagine the amount of flammables in the immediate area, gasoline, propane, and all the combustible material to go along with the flames from all the water craft near by. Escaping flames on some large boats must be a problem, smaller windows and doorways for example. Very sad for the families indeed.
  13. January 1971, I worked a Sunday 7-3 shift and had plans to go look at a car I was thinking about buying. Very cold day and my car in the parking lot has a flat tire LR, then lug nuts are all really tight and as each one breaks loose on the studs, that sends a painful sensation up my arms, finally get tire changed and I am really cold now. Driving to Beamsville on QEW and my oil warning light comes on, back in the day and on a Sunday, no gas stations open on highway. Had to divert to #8 and hunt up a place to buy some oil, finally found a place and put in 2 quarts of oil. Now its really dark and I am looking for farm house address in a place that I know nothing about, no cell phones back then. lucky for me I ask at a house and get the direction I needed, arrive at the farm and there are cars parked every which way, guy is having a family re-union , lots of people, knock on the door and speak to the car owner, plan is I will keep car for a day to see if I like it. cant locate the damn keys and we look for about half an hour, find them, go outside and start the car and leave the farm in Beamsville. Look at the gas guage and its on fumes, take the 50 road exit to go the highway 8 for fuel and the car runs out of gas on the exit ramp. I am still cold and have not had anything to eat since noon, I see a house light away off the distance and walk to it and knock on the door. 2 elderly ladies wont allow me in to use the phone to call the car owner for help, after 15 minutes of sweet talking, they finally allow me in. I find the car owners number in the phone book and call him to come and get me, on the phone I can hear that he is drunk due to re-union at his house, I thank the ladies and walk back to the stalled car, oh oh , OPP is parked on the ramp and is not a happy camper that the car is on the ramp. I tell him the owner is on his way with gasoline and I will be on my way soon, then I realize that the owner is intoxicated and on his way. Owner shows up and its so cold that the OPP officer stays in his cruiser, put gas in the tank and down the carb but the battery dies and now we have to turn the car he came in and turn it around on the ramp to boost the dead battery, Cop is fuming in his car. Got the car started , OPP left the scene and I told the car owner I did not want the car, we go back to his farm and I say bye bye. Get into my car but cant turn it around due to more family members have arrived, so I have to reverse back to the road down a long dark driveway and yes I go off the driveway and into the ditch, cant get out, go back to the farm house and explain my woes, He says no problem, just use his tractor to pull me out, cant find tractor key , look for 10 minutes to find them, go to barn and tractor wont start, fiddle with it for half an hour and it fires up. Get car out and finally get home in Hamilton ant 11.30 PM, very cold and hungry not to mention uptight, This is true story, I thought about calling Hollywood and asking if they could make a movie about it, what a horrible day it was.
