Fishing was tough this weekend

I really like being out on the lake but I enjoy some activity. The lake was really slow this weekend with no fish activity. There were some Canadian Geese flying over but nothing else was moving. Even my trolling motor and fish finder were giving me trouble. I think I got those straightened out. I'll have to wait until next weekend to find out if they are.
I got tickets to the Keith Urban / Gary Allen concert coming to the Q on November 9th. It should be a great country concert.

In Honor of Pirates Day

I found a web sight that gives you a pirate name. Mine is Dirty Tom Rackham. I told them I bathe daily but it didn't make any difference.
I'm still having trouble putting in HTML's and don't know why.

Work vs. Prison:

This is too close to true for me.

Work vs. Prison:

Just in case you ever get these two environments mixed up, this should make things a little bit clearer.

@ PRISON You spend the majority of your time in a 10X10 cell
@ WORK You spend the majority of your time in an 6X6 cubicle /office

@ PRISON You get three meals a day fully paid for
@ WORK You get a break for one meal and you have to pay for it

@ PRISON You get time off for good behavior
@ WORK You get more work for Good behavior

@ PRISON The guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you
@ WORK You must often carry a security card and open all the doors for yourself

@ PRISON You can watch TV and play games
@ WORK You could get fired for watching TV and playing games

@ PRISON You get your own toilet
@ WORK You have to share the toilet with some people who pee on the seat

@ PRISON They allow your family and friends to visit
@ WORK You aren't even supposed to speak to your family

@ PRISON All expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work required
@ WORK You get to pay all your expenses to go to work, and they deduct taxes from
your salary to pay for prisoners

@ PRISON You spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out
@ WORK You spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars

@ PRISON You must deal with sadistic wardens
@ WORK They are called managers

Thanks to my mentor JediJawa

Thanks for the shout out Jedi. What a special welcome to the blogging world. I am a face to face guy as Jedi called me so this blogging is new and I approach it with some worry of acceptance. Let's see how it goes.

Brad Paisley, who I always called Jedi's cousin is coming to town tomorrow. I'm hoping to go see him but relatives in town may change that oppertunity. I hope it works out. I'll report if it happens.

Craftsman pressure washer

I got a new pressure washer over the weekend. It's a Craftsman 2500 psi 3.2 GPM. It comes with a Honda engine. It had easy assembly with a big starter page that allowed me to put it together without glasses. The engine started on the second pull and I was pressure washing in no time. I did my front porch, sidewalk and two section of my driveway. It was easy work and it did a super job.
I wish I could say I bought it at Sears because of Jedi experience but I've shop at Sears before this. I like Craftsman tools and equipment. It was less then $300 which I felt was a good deal.
