Sorry guys. For some reason, I'm getting something like 1/2 dialup speed on WU tonight (and only WU). Also my rum just arrived and I need to medicate my back enough to sleep tonight.

FYI, I'm not psychot...I mean psychic, at least not in this case. Every so often I check the map above to see how many visitors from where. Macon, GA was the most recent at the time of the last post.

I'll check back later...carry on.

Hello RTLSNK!
It's okay you can come out now. I see you lurking!

Wow !
You could see him even though he wasn't there.
That's pretty scary.
Not surprising, just scary.....

OH, and the GA lotto #'s are 12, 14, 27, 37, 39.

Yer welcome !

Well, you were 30 minutes early, but that still is a little creepy if you know what I mean. I got to the website 30 minutes ago and did my normal check the weather here, then Texas where SugarBear is tonight, then Gainesville where Son is, then Ark where Mom and Sister is, and then clicked over here.

You wouldn't know what the GA lottery numbers are would you?
I'll split it with you!

OK, thanks, Capt.

First image is the view from the house looking south. We are on Monos Island, Gasparee Island in the distance, and the blob on the horizon is an LNG ship.

Second is a view across the bay to some other houses, shows how relatively unspoiled the islands are, with nice forest. Our dock is the covered one on the left.

Image 3 is friends boat, locally built 25' with 200hp Yamaha.

Y'all come.

Pottery sent these three pics from "down the islands" to tease us to pay a visit.

I'll let you comment on them Pottery.
Thanks!









Must say it looks tempting!

Now that Pottery is back, I have a couple pics that I can post if he wants me to.

Nice, if rather cloudy morning here.
Slight chance of showers, high near 80.
Works for me!

Yes, I do know that this is a classic set up.
But Pottery did go to all that trouble didn't he?
So its only fair that one of us should ask the question. :)

OK Pottery, who is dead?

The guy, or the Trant?

heh heh heh

My Dear Good Fellow.
Never have I been known to 'set anyone up' around here.
Well, actually, maybe a few times. Or a couple. But always without evil intent, thought or prejudice. Well, without intentional ei, t or p.

Anyway, a quick check on the google-machine by Alex & Amy's momma has revealed that the dried, grey, hairy corpse that we found on day one could likely have been the grim exoskeletal remnants of the beast that we saw alive and lurking on day two.

Seems that these Arachnid can do this metamorphosis from time to time, changing some of their internal organs while they are at it.

Then they breed and produce 10,000 little ones.

I have spent the morning building a Flame-Thrower.
It's a 45gal drum of high octane gasoline running backwards through an old electric vacuum cleaner. Simple.
I intend to take it with me next time I go up there........
I'll rent it to you, Snake, to clear out your crawl space, when I'm done.

Actually, my design will probably clear out an entire block. Every living thing.
Hey guys, watch this !

Shuckks ! I always have these million-dollar ideas that aint worth squat....

Came back from the hills and valleys this evening instead of tomorrow.
Was real nice and good weather too.

Lady Pott met a Tarantula in the bathroom there that was bigger than Texas.
Frankly, I've never seen a bigger one myself. 7" at least, from pink toe to pink toe.

Gives a man the shudders......

Off to bed.

Not coming to Trini, unless I leave my wife at home(and that ain't happnin!) If my wife saw a tarantula in your bungalow, you wouldn't have a bathroom! Heck, you may not even have a bungalow! :)
Member Since: December 31, 1969 Posts: Comments:
Oh sure Pottery, tell us about a GIANT TARANTULA and then slip off to bed leaving us alone to search our entire house with a flashlight and a shotgun looking for GIANT TARANTULAS all night.

I was going to tell you guys about my day but forget it now, I have to go make sure my flashlight has good batteries in it. :)

I don't need to check the Mossberg, its always loaded.

My thoughts on hull grooves. I read something a few years ago about that and the idea was indeed to create bubbles but can't remember any details.

I say just cut one big groove, call it a tunnel or a cat and be done with it.

Hey Ylee!

One night we were out to dinner with RTL and SB. I knew the place had pretty good calamari so I ordered that and some shrimp. RTL had a steak and kept mumbling something about bait.


Speaking of food by the sea,

that place served an excellent Rib Eye!

Will try the New York Strip next time we go there!

Do you put it in a bong or what????
Quoting pottery:
Anyway, all this chuntering on while time passes is all very well.
But I have to hit the road.

Alex and Amy are waiting on Pappi to take them into the Deep Dark Jungles where Waterfalls await and Jumbies lurk under logs that used to be Magical Trees but fell over in the time of the Dinosaurs.

But just because they are laying there doesnt mean they have lost their Magic. In fact, at night they start to glow and shimmer, and rise up to float about the forest tying vines to the tops of the highest trees to stop them from falling down.

There's a lot going on in the Deep Dark Jungle, as you know!


I have no doubts.... :)

Understood. If I took it directly from hook to cutting board, I wouldn't have a problem with that.

Yeah, different folks have different taste in seafood. Had a hard time convincing Angie that fresh tuna cooked properly over a wood fire would be so much better than the stuff in the cans. She also had Salmon as a kid and didn't like it. Now I grill it a lot and she loves it.

Howdy.

A Boat question for you and Hood.....

I was sitting, sipping a cold one, watching boats go by.
Got to thinking about speed, engine size, drag.....
Thought about stepped hulls.
Then thought....

"why not groove the bottom of the hull laterally, all over it under the waterline. Need to find a way to get the hull up onto a platform of bubbles to reduce the drag. Might need a good bit more power to get the thing moving initially. But after that, zoom?"
I think you guys need to build a prototype.....

Now, I have to get to bed.
Heading for the Hills tomorrow til Wed morning.
Taking a well-earned break, dont you know !


Googled it.
That's already been tried.

Illegal in kayak racing.
Dubious results.
Unless you know the exact path of water flow, you'll do more harm than good. Even if there is any good.

My philosophy is, if it worked, the military would be using it on subs.

Makes my head hurt to think about it.

If it doesn't catch bigger fish...

Well, lets see.
A common meat smoker design has a place on one side where you put the fuel, a place in the bottom where water goes, and a stack where the smoke comes out. Does that answer your question?
