    What should drag down the property value is that you will be under such scrutiny while living there.    A simple rule of no unlicensed vehicles, and no tolerance for squalor, is reasonable. But buying a place where you can't have a boat/camper in your driveway, a badminton court set up in your yard, or the freedom to do maintenance on your equipment, is a bit much.   You might as well live in an apartment....So why don't you?
    If you were to go outside and practice fly casting in your yard I bet your neighbors would be peeking through the curtains while on the phone with the president of the HOA......"This guy is out here waving a stick around and I need to check the mail....but I'm scared to go out there.   Help!"

    I will never live anywhere with an HOA. It’s not that I’m a pig or can’t abide by some rules. I just don’t like the asshats that it creates. Friend of mine had to get improvements to his deck approved by his HOA. It’s impossible to see it unless you are in his backyard. Pass.

    This guy had devoted his whole working life to his job in a pickle factory. One day he came home and told his wife he'd been fired from his job.
    She was pissed at the company he'd worked for, shouting, "You've given that place twenty years of devoted service. Why the hell did they fire you?"
    The guy says, "For the whole twenty years I've worked there I have been tempted to stick my dick in the pickle slicer and today I finally did it!"
    The wife screamed in horror and ran over to her husband. She pulled his pants down to see what damage had been done.
    "You look okay" she said, ....."So what happened to the pickle slicer?"
    The guy said, "They fired her, too".

    Feel like I’m probably a little late with this advice, but a woman in her 50s might have been a better bet given your advanced age. 😄
    But, you gotta work with what you got.

    My buddy Jay and I flyfished some local public ponds yesterday.  Pretty nice day to be outside.
    I caught 5 bass, 6 crappies, and 11 bluegills.

    Well, I got home yesterday with a couple hours daylight left and found that a big, mostly dead pine had snapped off about 8 feet up, dropping the top 2/3 on my roof.Since it was partly dead, most of it busted up on impact, so I didn't have to round up a chain saw to pull the offending limbs out of the holes. Turned out there were 4 holes (that I found). Scrounged up a 2x3' chunk of galvanized sheet metal and some 12" aluminum flashing and slid the pieces under the uphill shingles. 3 tubes of caulk and a couple nails later I hauled my fat, ancient butt down the ladder with just enough light to see. Let it rain.
    Which it did. The only evidence I can find of a leak is one really slow drip, right in the kitchen sink. Sometimes you eat the bear.
    Oneshot, if you'd have been here to sound the siren, I don't think it would have mattered in my case, so rest easy. Hope y'all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Had a couple limbs about the size of my leg through the roof/kitchen ceiling this morning. Too dark to investigate when I left for work, and it's supposed to start raining about the time I get home... 😒

    Hang tough ol'boy.   If you truly need help stockpiling some wood, or if y'all need ANYTHING to help get you through this.....just give me a call.    I plan to be down there quite a bit this winter and I'd be more than happy to help out.

    With the holidays coming, it would make a great gift for a child or grandchild. My son got one as a gift from my father when he was about 14, he's over 40 now so has saved what? about $300 plus never having to hassle with buying. He has a nice brass card and some conservation officers mentioned it's the first one they've seen. So grampa buy that kid one.

    Scott you probably killed that fish...You cant lip  or boga a big trout and hang it vertically w/o doing some damage. They are not bass. Hope you got a bloody thumb to teach you better 😁. I have 3-4 trout lakes within a couple miles of the house. Used to fish Jefferson allot when I audited the City Water Dept every November. I have seen fish in the 8-10lb range caught on Jefferson. Its a popular program. Folks have allot of fun with it why be jealous? Urban people pay the most 1/8 cent sales tax....so they should get something for it. Nothing is stopping anyone from driving to the city to fish an urban lake lunker if they want to.

    after doing a lot of running and looking at a lot of water,  figured out that many bass seemed to have skipped the shallow water and went straight to winter depths.  maybe they know something we don't.  looking at the forecast for next week, that could be true, brrr.
     started catching a lot of bass 50 to 55 feet deep the last two trips.  that is about 20 to 25 feet deeper than normal for this calendar date.
    the 3/4 Zinc Spoon, and the 3/4 Naked GrassJIg loaded with a 3 or 4 inch swimmer is getting the job done.  yesterday, toby and i manned the gun alone, but managed to get 14 keepers.  plenty of shorts and several big whites.  plus a bonus 5 lb. walter that fell to the GrassJig and swimmer.  it was 56 ft. deep on the bottom.  
    well, a few days of rain and gloom, a couple days of sunshine, and then winter temps.  makes me wonder if i need to start looking at calling in some paybacks with some folks that live further south.  i do love fishing this time of the year though.  my kind of fishing.  do a lot of looking, but catch a bunch when you find them, from one spot.  i am a lazy basser.  i like getting a lot of bites on a minimum amount of casts.
    by the way, even though these bass are 50 ft. deep, you still had to cast to them.  vertical did not work.  i understand that many love there video fishing, but a lot of the time, you will not catch the numbers, and most certainly not the quality that you can by sitting off of them and casting.
