Scottie J's Thought Of The Day
« on: April 30, 2014, 02:19:43 PM »
As you may or may not know, I'm not like most people.  I live life a little differently, see things differently and have different points of views than the rest of society.  Mostly because of my life's motto "Life is too short to be serious all of the time."  Every day my fascinating brain conjures up thoughts and possibilities and what ifs that are...  Well, quite frankly, they are most amusing.    :D    Sometimes on an epic scale that causes me to laugh out loud to myself while I'm in my own little corner at work sanding or painting away on a car.    ;D

The problem is, I have so many random thoughts in a day that I can never really remember them all.  Sooooo, I am starting this thread as sort of a journal of my most entertaining thoughts.  But I must put say this as a foreword as to not offend anyone.  I am not racist, a bigot, a hypocrite, an Atheist or a Christian.  I AM a husband, a father, a friend, a die-hard motorcycle enthusiast, a jack of all trades and master of only auto body & paint, and at times I can be an asshole.  But mostly, I am just a fun guy that tries to see humor in everything, even the darkest of times and/or events.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not a complete arse and I won't say things to intentionally offend anyone in times of tragedy.  I like to wait until a few months have passed until people are no longer grieving and have almost forgotten it happened.  Then I may make an attempt at shedding some laughter on the situation.  ;)  Let's face it, Mankind has turned society into a dark and grim world.  I feel as though it is my job to make people laugh from a different point of view.

Feel free to comment and join in on the fun!  :D

<Thought Of The Day>

I could get so much better mileage if I if I just rode "normally", I bet you in the realms 65-70mpg.  My bike has plenty of torque.  It takes little effort or throttle to get the bike up to speed in a timely manner.  But yet I find myself cracking the throttle at every stoplight, even though a quarter throttle is more than sufficient to do the job.  But what fun would that be?  I mean sure it is still fun just putting along, and sometimes I do.  But when you have gobs of Vinatge Torque idling in your fist, it's hard to NOT put it to work.  So life truly is full of decisions.  Do I get better mpg's and not fill up as often or do I enjoy the power to be had?  I will now call this trade off the MFR, Mileage to Fun Ratio.    :)

                                                   The Big K and how it might effect YOU

My thought about this is that sure it is fun to crack the throttle and have some fun but it should be in a manner that doesn't piss off others around you. I know bikers loathe cagers but most bikers are cagers too but we understand what it is to be a biker which gives a the upper hand as to understanding the biker mentality, whereas the majority of cagers and pedestrians do not .

My take is that if you constantly rip shit everywhere you go there will be plenty of people that are going to take offense to this. You might say, F*** them who cares, but I believe in the karma thing. Pissing people off creates negative thoughts towards you. After a while your negative thought towards you box fills up and it's just a matter of time before Karma comes a calling to even things up. So I am not saying not to have fun, do have fun, but in a way that promotes positive vibes toward you and towards bikers. Try to keep the negative karma box half full!

I agree with you Blltrdr.  That's why I don't ride like a jerk off when there is traffic around.  I generally only really rip on her when there isn't any other traffic or people around.  Truth is I actually do more putt putt than vroom vroom.  But that doesn't stop me from grabbing a fistful when I have the road to myself.   ;)

<THOUGHT OF THE DAY>

If a man rapes a prostitute and caresses her body while doing so, and the woman decides to press charges, should the man be charged with petty theft?

I think if it was a business transaction and he didn't pay her afterward then that would be considered petty theft. Rape is rape no matter who it's done to. Prostitutes are peeps too! To funny, a tender rapist.

I need to vent and elaborate a little bit on my new living arrangement.  As I sit here on my patio, smoking a bowl and drinking a Woodchuck praying that the hispanic kids upstairs finally stop jumping through my ceiling after listening to this nonsense for over an hour, I wonder what kind of horrific mistake the wife has made with the choice of this place.  I've talked to several neighbors over the last 3 days and most everyone is quite nice and all say this place is GHETTO "welcome to Waterfield Court".  I have a car port but I fear the Blackhawk is at risk.  I need a heavy duty bike lock.  I fucking hate this place and I'm only 3 days into a 13 month lease.  FML   :(

Yeah, this place makes me want to get my conceal carry.  I was laying down uh bed last night and realized I still had my knife in my pocket.  I said to my wife "I guess I don't need to bring my pocket knife to bed.  On second thought, maybe I should."  On 3rd thought, maybe I should get my Bowie knife out of my camping gear.  Things can always be worse, but shit they should could be better than this place too.

I need some ideas of how to protect the Blackhawk and deter people from wanting to steal it.

One of the guys on Another Forum posed the same problem today: how to protect his bike in the ghetto. One excellent suggestion was to rent a garage with other local bike riders, split the cost and share the shed.

I took my daughter to her after school activity the other day and made up a joke while I was watching.

Who needs a therapist when you own a bike?!  Road therapy is not only more effective, it's cheaper and more rewarding than sitting in an office and explaining your problems to a person who doesn't really understand anyway.  Jump in the saddle and ride your problems away!

There is no room for suicidal thoughts on a bike......  There's too many homicidal cagers to worry about!   ;D   Seriously tho, I haven't been to a therapist in a few years now.  Still have to see the psychiatrist to keep my meds in line, but no therapists.  And why does my new apartment smell like an elderly couple died of old age while having sex in here?!  I've been trying to figure out this smell for 2 weeks, and this is the best description I can come up with.  It's not overpowering, but it's there.

Maybe an old couple died while having sex...in ALL the rooms.
At least they died doing what/who they loved.  ;)

I got to thinking the other day about body modification. Most of my wife's family are right into body mods. Lots of Tatts, piercings, branding and other mutilations and a couple of gender reassignments in the extended "family". These guys are a lot of fun. I'm kind of the odd one out: I wont go for body mods and in fact am loath to lose bits of me that the rest would chop off, rip out and be done with (just spent a ton of $$ on my teeth so I could keep them a few more years. They don't get it). On the other hand, I have accumulated a lot of (not catastrophic) injuries over the years, most with a story to tell. That got me thinking about the reasons the rest of my crew get body mods, often as a reminder of some important event in their life and that my internal "mods" are significant to me for the same reason. And whether there's a market for cosmetic injuries. Could be a career in that.....

Definitely better when someone who takes meds for psychosis stays on there meds. I had a roommate once who attacked me for failing to wash a few things that another roommate had left in the kitchen sink. He saw a psychiatrist once a week. I think his next visit he divulged his freakout and moved out a few days later, most likely on the advise of the shrink.

The smell in your apartment is probably due to fat-slap sex. I'm not talking standard run-of-the-mill fat slapping, I'm talking industrial hanging flesh slappin'. Probably has permeated the carpet and walls. There may be grounds for you to get out of your lease if the smell remains. Creepish visual, don't think I would sleep well. Well good luck with that Scottie.

I can actually voice a valid opinion on this subject, being that I am covered in a tattoos and  a former body piercer and tattoo apprentice.

In my opinion there are 4 different types of people who get tattoos:
1.  People who get tattoos (or even just a single tattoo) to express who they are as individuals, generally being a tattoo/s of something or someone that they love or an activity that they love, i.e. a deceased family member, music related, car related, ect.
2.  People who WANT tattoos and can't AFFORD them and end up with some really REALLY horrible ink preformed by a "hack".  (I myself am guilty of 2 offenses in this catagory)
3.  People who are unsure with themselves as individuals.  Some people have an "identity crisis" and come to the conclusion that a tattoo will "make them cooler" or more "socially accepted".   Or, people who get a tattoo just to say they have one.  The end result is not always a bad tattoo, but generally a bad choice in tattoo, and most times ending in regrets and disappointment.  For some people, this gets way out of control and a lot of times end up being horribly disfigured with hundreds of hours of body modification and end up working for a freak show.  And I don't mean this derogatory, either, some of the "freak show people" I have met are actually really nice people.
4.  And last, people who get tattoos for the shear "shock factor".  Sometimes this ties into the last part mentioned in #3.  But there are some people out there that want, or already have, their entire bodies covered in ink, piercings, dermal implants, tongue splitting, tattooing their eyeballs, having their teeth reshaped......   All kinds of interesting and bizarre shit.  I try not to judge, and to each their own.  I support body modification, but I also believe that people should be educated in their decisions.

I am a mother effing a-hole when I run out of my meds.  They are definitely a financial and life priority for me.

Ok, Scottie - we wanna know... are you guilty of the former or the latter?  Did you end up with horrible ink, or were you the "hack" applying it?  Or perhaps one of each?  ;)

It's a little of both.  I started off with White Trash Hack Ink, but when I started body piercing is when I started getting quality ink.  I have a lot of skulls tattooed on myself.  I right arm is my Skul-Lage, I have a giant skull that covers the entire front side of my torso, I have a bunch of skulls and other weirdness on my legs that I tattooed myself, my left arm has some hack tribal that is old, but also the Kanji symbol for "bull shit" that I tattooed myself (verified from 2 different Asian people that bull shit "is pretty much what it says" and that it translates to "not right") and a tattoo I designed myself with 3 tribal 3's in a spider web on my elbow.  My, and everyone I meet, favorite tattoo is my "RESET" button directly behind my left ear.  I designed it myself one day while having a brain fart at the tattoo shop.  I'll try and post some pics of my favorite tattoos some time today.  :)

Have Hipsters ruined cafe racing?
Cafe racers have always been cool. No argument there. Seems, though, that cafe racers are latest accessory fashion item to be adopted by the credit card cool kids. Beards, organic lattes, $600 jeans and denim vests, smoking rollies, chopping the subframe off your commuter bike, shooting a 3 min "build" video in a badly lit garage, Deus. Pipeburn is rotten with vids of pensive fops doing the "hipster weave" on fender bereft cafebratbobbercustoms on their way to the art gallery or picnic.
I heard a rumor from the east coast of gangs of hipster RE CGT owners spoiling the good reputation of this great little bike by riding badly between coffee shops. I'm waiting for the day one of them screws a Robert August longboard to an SR500. Damn, I got called a hipster the other day, just because of the bike I was riding. It's not like I'm well dressed or anything.......

Thank goodness I can take refuge in something the trend setters will NEVER co-opt: Radio controlled soaring  ;D forever hipster free.

Holding a cut off disc with your hand while pulling the trigger is NOT the correct way to tighten the hub screw.  It hurts.  Bad.   :-\

So how long was the trail of blood. If your going to do something like that hopefully you could set some kinda record. I have nicked my hand once grinding on some concrete with a wheel. Lot's of blood. Scares the crap out of you because you realize that a little blood is better than a whole finger. I had a buddy in Cali that was working for a company installing ornamental iron railings, was using a cut off disc in a grinder and it exploded and cut from the bottom of his chin all the way up the jaw to about an inch from his ear. Horrible accident, felt bad for that dude.

Ouch! Power tools, dangerous.  :o

I think it's time for a new social etiquette rule: Seeing how so much of the workforce nowadays is on call, casual or call it what you will, if a decision is made with crew to do something at an agreed time/date and someone has to take time off work/miss work/take a sickie and the others pull out on him/her, the crew who pull out ought to financially compensate the one who took the work off and missed their pay for nothing. I'm getting tired of this crap. It costs some of us a lot of money to skip work.

It wasn't as bad as could have been, I was only using the cut off wheel in my cordless drill.  I was trying to cut a socket in half to make a bushing/spacer and the wheel kept jumping on me about 2/3 of the way thru.  I put the drill in reverse in hopes of getting it to start cutting again but spun the disc loose.  Then I said to myself "The screwdriver is all the way over there.  Watch this."  So I grabber the disc and just bumped the trigger on my drill, except it got tight really fast and still had some torque going once it was tight.    :-\

I'm so frustrated with my job, I feel like punching my boss right square in the mouth about 4 times a day.  I won't.  But I sure freaking think about it.  AHHHGGGGAAAHAGAAGAHHHAAHAHAGAHAGGHA!!!!!!!!     >:(

OK  I feel better now that I vented.    :)   But seriously, it is so hard to have an alcoholic for a boss.  And it doesn't help that he renovated 2 offices into an apartment and LIVES at the freaking shop.  To make things worse, this ass clown starts drinking beer about 10:30am, takes a nap around lunch time, wakes up and starts drinking scotch, and is so drunk by 4-5pm that his breath becomes offensive and will get you buzzed yourself.  And can you imagine this jerk off will test drive customer vehicles like this?!  Well, that is if the car doesn't have a interlock on it.  He's such a drunk that he can't even drive a car with an interlock first thing in the morning because he is still buzzed from the night before.  Freaking loser.

Sorry to hear about your job. In my youth I worked for a couple of drunks. One lived upstairs from the business so he was always there. The other would tell me to be at work at 8am and he wouldn't show until noon to unlock the place.

I had a neighbor who, when he saw me break out the power tools would hold up his phone and say "I've dialed 9-1-..."

Hijack!


ABOUT THE SMELLY CARPET

Fabreeze makes a powder to spread onto the carpet then vacuum that off.
We started using that lately and I MAY not have to buy new carpeting for three more years.
Put some Fabreeze drier sheets onto the inside side of the vacuum exhaust port filter of the vacuum.

How bad do you WANT to move?
Turn the stereo WAAAAYY up before you go to work one day and then arrange to meet your family for a long dinner later in the day.
You will be gone in a week, just sayin'

It's nice when you drop off an app for a job that appears to be exactly what you're looking and they tell you that you need to go to a staffing agency for your pre-screening and paper work.  Then when you call the staffing agency the next morning and tell them what's going on and they reply "You must be Scott.  Karen called us and told us to expecting to hear from you.  Can you come in today and fill out paper work and drop off your resume?"    Glad I stayed home today and was able to do that.   :D

This was, by far, the most intense job interview I have ever had.  I thought I was just going to walk in there grab a paint gun and spray.  NOPE!  It was "grab the paint gun, set it up to these exact specs.  Now I am going to spray this tank.  Now spray the rest of these tanks exactly how I painted the first one."  After the first tank "That wasn't how I sprayed my tank.  Try it again."  Second tank "That's not what I did.  Watch me again."  3rd tank "That's better but still not right."  He sprays one more with a second coat.  And then the last 4 tanks I sprayed the 2nd coat on he said I did much better but still wasn't quite perfect.  So I asked what I was doing wrong and he explained I was pushing my paint pattern instead of pulling it.  Not a real big issue but it is when there are 100 different painters spraying different parts and different stages of paint but all have to have the exact same paint gun set up the exact same way spraying the exact same pattern.  Basically, it's a completely different spraying technique than I'm used to and the supervisor told me straight out that I need to forget everything I've learned.    :o

Supposed to hear back from them tomorrow about their decision.

Wow!
Sounds like the Spanish Inquisition!

Anyhow, it seems like they wanted to spend time with you, to get you on to their techniques, so that's a good sign.
If they didn't want you, they'd have ditched you right off the bat.
I think you have a good shot at it.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys!    :)  This place is hands down the most scrutinized quality control I have ever seen in ANY production factory.  For example, on a rear fender, it is only allowed 2 blemishes smaller than .25mm, basically 2 specs of dirt, or the part fails and it is stripped and started over from scratch.

God I hope not!  You know what's funny about that ass clown?  He refuses to give me a raise and then every 10 days or so he asks "You're not quitting on me too, are you?"  I just keep telling him "Nope.  I need this job."  I'm not even giving him 2 weeks, I'm just going to finish out my week, wait for payroll to clear my bank account and show up and grab my tools and tell him "Sorry.  No actually I'm not sorry.  But you won't buy me a paint booth and you refuse to give me a raise.  So I'm going to work for the most prestigious custom paint shop in the entire country where I will get a raise every year, and have benefits.  And not only do they have a paint booth, they have TWELVE paint booths.  You don't have to kiss my ass, but you can lick my balls."  Hahahahaha  That last line I saw on a T-Shirt at Bike Fest yesterday.  ;D
Of course, this is all pending whether I get a job offer tomorrow or not.

I talk a lot of smack.  As much as I'd REALLY love to tell him to "lick my balls" the truth is that I'm just way to nice of a person to actually say that.  Now a complete a stranger that I don't know who is giving me trouble, sure I'll tell them that.  But never an employer.  Here's hoping I get a job offer today.     :D

"My skill set isn't to level for the amount of wages I was asking to start at."  It wasn't that I failed the test, I think it has more to do with the fact that I'm making more money now than they are willing to start me at.  I know how they want their parts painted now so I started using that new technique at work today.  I'll just keep practicing their way and next year when I buy a house in that town I'll go take the test again and ask for a little lower wage.   :)

Scottie - I'm sorry you didn't get the job, and I'm pleased and proud at your reaction to the news!  Although, I hate to hear you say, "I'll just get better than I am now and offer to work for less money than I currently earn."  I know, everything is a compromise, and it's more than just the wage that makes the job.

Wages are a funny thing.  The State of Maine pays about one half the going public sector rate for the work I do; my net take-home has decreased almost every year I've held the job.  There appears to be no relief in sight.  Yet, I and my coworkers remain - why?  The reasons vary between us, but the bean counters have always known that they can keep the boats running on what they're offering, so it's no surprise.

But this may be changing - ongoing changes in State Capitol upper management are causing real turmoil on the ground, and it is now apparent to the people who rely on the ferries that the State not only cannot fill openings at current wages, but they cannot retain crews, as evidenced by a couple of guys quitting, or retiring early for lack of pay.

The response from above is to drop it back on the employees' shoulders, encouraging us to be team players and to work extra days to fill in and keep the boats running, but also, in the same breath, to threaten refusal of sick and vacation leave requests because of the lack of available relief crews.

The islanders are starting to get worried, and are pushing back, which may help us in the end, but we're none of us too hopeful.  The current feeling is, "enjoy your work day today, because tomorrow it's going to be worse."

I hope, my friend, you find that balance between an acceptable job and an acceptable wage and an acceptable place to live...

So I didn't get the job at the custom shop but that hasn't stopped me from looking for something better.  I have another hands on interview Monday morning at 9 am for a place called Dent Wizard, you may have seen them around your town.  Sounds like I'd actually get to do a bit of traveling around town to different dealerships and car rental places so that might be fun and different.  :)  I'm not too terribly keen on working for a corporation again, but hey, you never know.  At least they offer benefits and all that fun stuff.  ;)

So a little update, I actually have 2 interviews lined up for Monday.  The second I was originally just applying for Body/Painters helper.  But after I set up the interview I noticed that the same shop is also hiring a body shop manager, which I am perfectly qualified for with 3 years of retail management experience and 9 years of in the auto body/collision world.  So I think I am going to bring that up when I go to interview.  I don't mind taking a pay cut for something better and closer to home, but it's kind of stupid to take 3 steps backwards.  You know?

In a little bit here I am going over to my buddies house to lay down some metallic blue paint on his side covers and tank for his 78 KZ750.  I was thinking this morning that I have some left over pearl coat with Badd Azz Blu and Diamond White already mixed up so I may just throw that on there to hook up a friend and make his bike extra sexy.   8)

Well, today didn't play out too well.  I went to my first interview and the manager shows up up 30 minutes late.  Fine whatever.  Then he starts explaining the commission program and bottom line is I would only be grossing $2000 a month for the first 2 months before I got my first commission.  Ummmm, ok.  Then he asks me if I can give him a demo and I'm thinking he's going to have me spray a fender or a door or something.  Nope, he has a F350 that just came out of body work and wants me to prep, mask and spray the entire boxside and rear door of the truck.  Basically wanted me to do about 5 hours worth of work for free to show him what I know.  Yeah, I think not.

Second interview the guy calls me and leaves a message asking if we had an appointment today or not and to call him back to verify.  (For fucks sake people.   ::)  )  I call him back and told him that it would be silly for me to take a job as a helper when I've been doing body work and paint for 9 years and I mentioned that I was interested in the body shop manager position.  All was good until he asked if I knew how to do estimates.  I said that I have done several hand written estimates on the computer but that I haven't had the opportunity to use AutoDax or anything like that.  And of course that is a requirement to be a manager.  He did mention something about getting my foot in the door and learning the program and getting promoted.  But the only opening he had was a body man position in Castle Rock.  But that would defeat the purpose of trying to find a job closer to home.  I told him that I would keep in touch with him and that if anything came up that would be suiting for me to give me a call.

I guess that's 3 strikes.  That's ok, I still have 2 more outs before the inning is over.  :)  You know what?  My Monday afternoon just cleared up for a conference meeting with the Blackhawk, the open road and myself in the saddle.   8)

Sorry to hear you didn't get any of the jobs, but getting jobs for the last few years has become a real PITA. No one wants, or has, to pay anything and regardless of what the pols say about the improving economy and job availability, I would still place the real unemployment figures for closer to 30%. Most of the unemployed have just given up looking. I gave up several years ago. Be glad you still have a job!

Better luck next time, Scottie.
Sucks about the job situation over there. Our new government seems keen on emulating the US system: Get rid of publicly funded healthcare, lower minimum wage below survival level, create a class system of Rich, wealthy middle class and working poor. Plus selling our land and publicly owned businesses to overseas investors (ok, so that's been happening for a long time now). Third world living conditions, here we come. Probably be an Enfield factory here by 2020, exporting to idle rich Indians.

Our government definitely has some F'ed up priorities.  NOT creating new jobs as promised while spending trillions of dollars fighting wars in other countries that are absolutely no concern of ours.  Team America, defenders of the world and spenders of money that doesn't exist.  Have our politicians forgotten that we have owed China over a billion dollars since the the 70's?  And somehow that figure just keeps getting higher and higher.....  Jack asses.

Anyways, here's a couple of pics of the paint job I did for a friend over the weekend.  Other than a couple pieces of cotton flying into the gas tank it came out really nice, and the cotton wet sanded right out.  As always my custom pearl coats will jump out and stab you in the eye when you look at it in direct sunlight.    8)

Hey Scottie,
I want to work with you.
Let's come up with some Ace paint schemes for Enfield tins.
Then people can send their tins to you for the custom paint.
Many Ace customers are customizing their whole bikes, and need paint. We are already seeing people with new GT 535 bikes wanting to change the color.
We now have a featherbed frame maker, and we have engine work of all levels, and we need to have some custom body and paint.
Let's discuss! It's always best to fill the needs from within the community.

PS - I have some tanks and tins that I can donate for you to try out various ideas and looks. I can send them to you.

Maybe your new job can be to get your Bulldog Kustoms business jump-started with some cycle paint on Enfields.

That is a fantastic idea Tom!  I love it!  I already have a few ideas in my head.  ;)  Yes, let's definitely discuss this over the phone and see if we can come up with a plan of attack.   :)

Okay!
I'll be pretty busy for the next few days, but I'll try to get at least a tank packed up to send out to you next week.
I'll give you a call when I can get a break in the schedule.

Well, I'm going to want my Ace Air Canister touched up with some Madras type stripes top and bottom and an Ace logo in gold... might as well go with the Tom Lyons endorsed paint professional...

VACATION AT LAST!!!!!
Today is day 1 of my 9 day vacation!  Did a little fishing this morning and then went to DIA to pick up my wife and stepson from their weekend adventure to the Cleveland area.  Now I'm packing up for my trip down to Texas to spend a week with my parents and 2 kids.  My parents just bought a retirement home in Harlingen, TX about 45 minutes from South Padre Island, so it will be exciting to get to see their new home.  I'm looking forward to going boogie boarding with my son.  The retirement community they moved into has a private golf course, jacuzzi, sauna, pool, shuffleboard and all kinds of fun stuff.  Should be a great time!   :D

I was just looking at google maps.  I didn't realize it is damn near in Mexico!  I better be careful, I don't have a passport.  LOL

Those retirements places are actually pretty nice.....Playing shuffleboard, wives play cards, going to the casino, hanging out at the pool, chilling out on the golf cart around a low maintenance community....I'm still keeping it as a option when it time to get out of dodge...The enfield is coming with me/It might pass as a moped... 8)

Be sure to get some BBQ while your down there! And if you get to Port Isabel there is an awesome seafood restaurant just up the street from the lighthouse.

Made it into McAllen Texas last night around 9pm.  I was greeted at the airport by my son, daughter and niece and nephew holding "Missed You" signs which was totally awesome.   :)    Spent the early morning sitting on the patio drinking coffee and catching up with my mom.  This afternoon we are going to get our fishing licenses and bait and then this evening we will go to South Padre for some sunset ocean fishing.  Going to have to get a few rounds of golf in this week too.   Man, this is going to be a great week!   ;D

Hey, Scottie,
I'm on your side.
After losing a couple of chained down motorcycles from a car port of an apartment about 35 years ago, I decided I'd never live in another place that didn't have a garage. Still being true to that notion. I found renting condos could be cheaper than apartments and have a lot better amenities!

I'm having a great time in Texas with the family!  Went to S. Padre Island Wednesday night and played in the ocean with the kids (my son, daughter, niece and nephew).  Brought the fishing gear and Mom and I waded out a ways and fished the surf.  We both caught 2 whitings, the 2 mom caught were a bit smaller, but I caught a real nice 16"er and another that was about 12".  I let my son try and catch a fish too, but apparently it's been so long since I've taken him he forgot how to reel a fish in!  LOL  He had a real nice whiting on and he starts reeling it in as fast as he could like it was a race, the fish jumped and we got a look and then he was gone.   :(   Then mom caught a small catfish, but it was getting dark and couldn't hardly see the fish so I ended up grabbing a towel to hold it so I could get the hook out without getting stung, those little bastards hurt!  By this time it was getting very dark and we couldn't even hardly see enough to reload the shrimp on the hooks, so we packed up and called it a day.

Yesterday I took the kids to the pool and we swam for a couple of hours.  I got some really great pics and video with my camera with the waterproof case on.  The kids are having a blast and so am I!  And my little nephew cracks me up.  I've only hung out with him a couple of times before, as he was only 6 months old when I moved to Denver.  But he always right by my side; "Uncle Scottie this.  Uncle Scottie that."  And the stuff this kid comes up with!  He is definitely related to me.  LOL  ;D

Cool video azcat!  :)

So Monday while at the beach for about 3 hours, my pasty cracker white ass, well, actually just my torso, go the worst freaking sunburn I've had since I was about 10 years old.  Normally, my whole life I've spent so much time outside that I kept my tan year round, even with 2' of snow on the ground.  As of late I've been working so damn much that I don't hardly ever get outside.  Luckily, I had a tan going on my face, arms and legs from the few times I've gone fishing, but I haven't been outside with my shirt off in a couple of years.  Needless to say my shoulders and back and breaking out in blisters everywhere and I am in severe pain.  I am so burnt it seriously hurts just to move even if there isn't anything even touching me.  This sucks.    :'(

Getting ready for another fishing trip tomorrow, leaving about 4am.  Boss "made" me work last Saturday and then I asked him if I could work 50 hours to make some extra money and get some cars done and he was all for it.  Then Tuesday he comes up to me talking about how he can't afford to pay me OT or cash under the counter "but maybe we can come to some kind of agreement for me to work extra hours."  Well, I don't work for free, and I had my 40 hours in at 2:45pm today, so I left.   :D  I'm heading up to Green Mountain Reservoir, the lake trout and rainbows are doing real good right now and the kokane salmon should start spawning any day now.  The weather turned pretty cold last night so I'm hoping that got the salmon into spawn mode.  So I'm leaving early in the morning and will camp overnight Friday night do some more fishing Saturday and depending on how things are going maybe stay Saturday night too.  :)

I'll be living vicariously through you, Scottie... you who haven't ridden hardly at all this summer!  Will this be a bike trip, or a cage trip?

Either way, please post some pics of your haul!  And, have fun!!

Taking the Subi.  And seriously if this rain would ever stop I would definitely ride more than I have.  It's been drizzling all day again today.  Luckily where I'm going there isn't any precipitation expected this weekend, tho it will be down in the 30's at night.  I may just sleep in the back of the wagon, I haven't decided yet.
