Hello Wayne, hello Sig. Good to hear from both of you.

Sig, something you said has me confused. Let me quote: "Good morning to all my other Trooper friends here on Oldtimers, sure don't feel like I belong but it's early AM and by the eve I'm sure that will change."

Don't feel like you belong? Getting too young for us old farts? Hahahahaha! I love it!! Catch me a lunker, Sig!

Good morning Wayne, always good to see your posting and know you are still with us. Nice sunny but cool morning here, got family coming over this afternoon who we haven't seen for quite a while, gonna be a good day. Blessings on your day, hope you and Vi are doing as well as is possible. Good morning to all my other Trooper friends here on Oldtimers, sure don't feel like I belong but it's early AM and by the eve I'm sure that will change. Dave, fishing been good since the warmer weather last week, fish heading to the shallower water looking for a place to spawn, already caught one female last week with a flat belly, already laid her 1st set of eggs, seeing some small fry swimming !

Dave,I new someone had to be lurking amongst the ferns.  Did you have the CD BEFORE the macaw came to live with you?  You can tell me.  I won't squeal.

Harry,

I've got a 2 hour CD with no music, just sounds of the Brazilian jungle. The wife's Macaw loves it!
