Jim, what the heck were you thinking? You're not an 18 year old. :fingerpt: Glad both of you are OK. :thumbsup:

Not physically an 18 year old, Andy. The head still has some growing up to do! :lol3:

I can certainly relate to that!

It's a Buffett song from the COCONUT TELEGRAPH album.

I went back and looked at it after you said that Slack. I noticed it was right after I said "I got lucky...." I think her response was "What did I do wrong to get the retarded owner?"

Sweet! I like Jimmy Buffett. Talented guy in a lot of ways! Plus he's got a home on a Caribbean island. I could live with that! :thumbsup:

Same here. I always pictured you as being older, thinner, balding. More grandfatherly looking I guess you'd say.

His concerts are fun :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

He comes to the Shoals at times and hangs with Mac McNally, his guitarist/songwriter. Nobody seems to recognize him. :huh:

Earlier comment about the dog being the innocent one goes here. :lol3:

The dog would not have stayed put once Jim was gone. Dead dogs do not play well on the news these days.

Yep. That's exactly the reasoning scaup.

I've never been to one. I bet they are fun. I could live his lifestyle very easily. Being a native Californian I HATE wearing shoes. As a kid I drove my parents crazy, as I would go barefoot in all seasons. Then I used to buy these custom fitted elk-skin mocassins that were as close to being barefoot as you can get while still wearing shoes. I need to do a little research to see if these can still be found. Kind of a hippie thing at the time....but man, I wore a pair for 6 or 7 years. Had them resoled with conveyor belt material 3 or 4 times. nothing ever felt better on the feet! Was like pulling on a second layer of skin.

You bet buddy! I know quite a few clampers from the IBEW. I bet if we compared names we'd find some in common! :beer: I've been in Downieville when there was a get-together. Pretty fun! :thumbsup:

Surprisingly, where I work there aren't any clampers in our line department. Quite a few on the water and construction sides though. Just a few weeks ago I sponsored one of the construction guys in. He missed three days of work afterwards. :huh: :wink: :lol3:

He's a big strapping kid too. Probably 6'4", 250 lbs, looks like the poster child for Hitler's eugenics program. All off that working out and eating good nonsense must weaken the liver or something. :huh:

:lol3: I can remember a few of those days myself, Matt. My 21st birthday I drank a bunch of Two Fingers tequila. Didn't feel decent for about 3 days. nother time I had been working two jobs, construction and nights at a liquor store. I finally got a night of and went catfishing with a few friends. On the way out I drank whiskey and just went overboard in "celebration" of freedom. By the time we got to the spot I was puking everywhere and slept the rest of the night away. That was another multiple day recovery period. Funny, but just talking and thinking about those times makes me feel queasy! I can taste it! :lol3:

Yeah. To this day, if I even smell Southern Comfort, I'll get that uneasy feeling as bits and pieces of a bad memory run trough my mind. Waking up, drunk, going to work, eye lids bruised under the strain of heaving which burst all the tiny veins, the brunt of the hangover really kicking in around noon. My lord, that was a bad one.
