  1. I like my LL Bean Goretex waders. They’ve proved very durable and Bean backs their products as well as anybody. The Bean label doesn’t carry the cachet some in the fly fishing bidness do though. They try to slide by on quality, value and standing behind their product.
  2. Just remember -- you will never weigh less than you do now. Never.
  3. Does the Mrs. know we're discussing her....I can't make myself type it. Wait -- I got it. Just stop there. Does the Mrs. know we're discussing her?
  4. Well, were you just standing around in ankle deep water next to the parking lot waiving a stick, or did you actually bushwhack and catch some fish? We need a report and pics!!!!
  5. I've gotten a couple cortisone shots, the most recent one in May. On a two week vacation this summer, which included a lot of walking, I didn't have any pain whatsoever. Doc says you can't do cortisone too frequently or it accelerates the decline. Earlier this month it went downhill fast though. It's more than just the shot wearing off because it was never this bad. Don't remember any injury. There's some stuff they can shoot in your knee that's supposed to be much better and longer lasting than cortisone. Hyaluronic acid made from cock's combs. Brand names Euflexxa, Sinvisc, and others. Not covered by insurance though so it would cost me about $1,000 a year. Might do that in lieu of surgery.
  6. Looking like repairs at this point, but I'm still waiting to talk to the ortho guy Used to be you got one replacement per knee in your lifetime and they waited until you were older. I know a guy my age who's well into knee #2. Well, if the timing works out, we'd be happy to have you stop by. I'm just about 10 minutes south of I-70.
  7. Years ago I blew it out in a game of flashlight tag. (Medial meniscus tears and arthritis.)
  8. Been wanting to try out my new tent too!
  9. Congrats to Jr. I saw that and immediately thought it would be a good excuse for you to get down that way. I'd be up for something! Haven't hit the little creeks enough the last couple years. But...I'm in the process of figuring out what to do about my bum knee. Hoping I can get another shot and make it through the fall before surgery.
  10. Oh, I try. I really do try. Sometimes it’s just too much though. 😄 Al answered your original question.
  11. My gawd...there’s only on ‘s’ In canvas. It’s not ‘Can-Vass’ it’s ‘Can-vuss’. Sorry, if you had a good point I would have let that slide, but, well, you didn’t. 😄 Modern, breathable, lightweight, stocking foot waders and a fitted wading boot are great to walk in. You don’t wear them because you’re planning on fishing in ankle deep water next to the parking lot all day, you wear them because you want to cover some ground and might encounter deeper water to cross.Pack them in and put them on at the river? Nope, not me. We've got products these days that are far, far better than the past. Orvis, and most other companies, research their products pretty well and try to improve them as they learn. They’ve got pro staff that use the stuff and provide feedback. They fish.

    2019 Garden Thread

    Lawdy, we have suffered this season. I won’t rehash it all now. But, we’ve also had a lot of tomatoes...a lot of cracked and cat faced ones. Those have either been dried or had the sweet spot cut out and the rest pitched. But...there’s this one that is darn near perfect. A very large, clean Black Krim: I think the squirrels and long-necked climbing turtles are getting tired of maters. Possibly gettin’ canker sores 😄

    Wifey got these peaches at a festival she went to with some friends. First really good peaches we’ve had this year. There will come a time when you will wish those girls were there gobbling up your peaches. Cherish your time with them—it will go by faster than you can imagine.

    Had a couple of the babies over today. Did burgers on the grill, beans and corn on the cob. Picked up some fantastic local peaches yesterday and we made an excellent cobbler.
