  1. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    They deep fat fry them in some parts of the South and eat them like fried pork skins. Nothing is bad as Tripe. Worked a summer as a Biologist Aide in the summer when sampling in boats we would bring bag lunches. Had a Biologist loved Sweet Sue canned Tripe, he would open up the can and the stench was unbelievable. He'd commence to slathering hot sauce over it and eat it with his fingers all the time running down his chin and chest. Talk about trying to hold down your gag reflex man it was as bad as bad can be. Could have done without this memory.

    Thank you Patrick for your kind comments and folks attached likes, your advice is correct. We are experienced at this 4 years ago she had surgery for 2 fistulas intestinal tears different than this one 3 years ago a surgery for a hiatal hernia, last year breast cancer radiation, chemo totally clear, now these things supposed to come in 3s not 4s. Shes the toughest person I know, cannot believe how she handles this. Married 46 years always did things together, She went through the paramedic program so did I. When she got emergency calls I went to. My time with the ALA Marine Police when I got my emergency calls or search and rescue she went to. We backed each other up the stories I could tell. Its been a good ride with a lot more to come. I'll ramble no more

    Rose early, took care of the bosses open wound (recovering from a twisted intestine surgery long recovery period) made her breakfast yogurt and soft fruit which she dislikes but can't have a hard diet yet. Washed 2 loads of clothes working on the third. She hates when I do the washing I tend towards larger loads Planning ahead lunch & supper. Almost time to get her up and do the walking routine, (6 times daily) that's it so far today. Shopping groceries later on. Shes a good girl, never complains if it was reversed I'd be the patient from hell. Time to walk.

    I noticed no stern cleats were these not supplied by BJ
  11. On your home page go to more, then to articles and databases go to framing and planking. Scroll down several pages and there are some good line drawings showing the lay of the planks to illustrate what Dan relayed. What was relayed about appearance of first layer is very true its easy to put lipstick on a pig-filler-sanding-and voila a beautiful planked hull.

    Had a comp case once, bad back this guy was being paid under the table roofing with his father on 2 story house. He carried a 4x8 piece of plywood first pushing up the ladder ahead of himself. It was windy that day, he picked it up carrying then the wind caught it like a sail. Funny thing is instead of letting it go he held on to it flying off the roof still holding the plywood looked like a flying squirrel. Thought he was hurt, but here he comes up the ladder pushing the plywood. This time he pushed the wood across the roof to where they were working. Worked all day. Unhappy camper when the video played in court.

    Kids today are so far ahead of the curve I feel like an antiquated old man. Well thinking about it that's exactly what I am, sometimes I still use my fingers to count FUBAR.
