Good to see barfoot woodworks back at it so soon. Take advantage of a few days on the boat concentrate on getting the rum right- then the boat

Hey Pac .... Mule is for tough .. right!

Get on the net and see what you need to do to grow old gracefully.

Glad you've bounced back!

I met the guy that invented the stent, he has 14 yachts. He deserves every one of them.

I'm very glad to hear you are on the mend, I've been enjoying your progress on your projects and fully expect to follow you for many more years. Take care.

I enjoy admiring the progress of your work, glad you made it through in good shape. Can you have an annual check,? stress test or something,so it hopefully gets found early and avoids the full on emergency?

Eric not so sure about the tough part . I wanted to go to the boat and work today but it was a little to cool to paint .My wife was happy she wanted me to take a break today anyway ,maybe tomorrow she says . She made the suggestion to organize my stainless steel screws ."Your always complaining ", "I can't find the right screw or bolt or nut or washer " It kinda sounds like an old man kinda thing to do ,but I guess I'll give it a whirl .I know I almost always have what I need but can't ever find it. Anybody ever take the time to do this? Maybe I could start another thread and get everybody to show their stainless screw assortment . When I was about ten years old an old man was my best friend and he used to keep his in baby food jars with the lids screwed to the bottom of a shelf . I thought that was the coolest thing . I'm bored so if anyone reads this and wants to show off their screw assortment BRING IT ON !

PacMule it would take many pics to show all my screws. Too many places. Despite the many screws I save (because of my unorganized nature) most of the time I go to the store when I need one. Usually waste too much time looking. Wife got me started too but my usual prevailed. My screws are mostly in plastic tubs w lids that are a bugger to get off. My dear wife bought me 3 of those plastic 2'x2.5' wall things that have 25 to 40 little plastic drawers. She filled them while we lived in Alaska and even labeled them. Shackles, bushings, plugs, vacuum caps, screws (SS wood SM ect) and lots of other stuff.

Not an old man kind of thing. It's a round too it thing.

I'm a bit sad you're changing your boat name. It's so similar to "Willy" and there aren't many boy boats.

Congrats on fast recovery!

Don't look back... Be sure to look forward - just don't try to get there too fast!

Jimbob,
It's the name of his boat .. William. My boat's name is Willy. She is a Willard and we called her Willy as we were looking at her and a slew of other boats. Gave them our own personal names just to keep them straight. The name stuck. Not many boats have male names so I almost feel a kinship of sorts w PM with William. Seems like William ought to have important sounding initials like .....
The JR William. Willy seems (on the other hand) like a little boy childish name. We certainly don't think of Willy the boat as childish though.

Hey Art,
That's what Christine started. The ones w bigger drawers are better lots of the time.

Thanks Art .Thats a nice collection FlyWright and I thought I had a bunch . When I first saw William the first thing that came to mind was a pack mule .it's short and stocky and looked like it could take a heavy load like one of those short heavy duty dump trucks .that's a though maybe healhustler could photoshop a dump bed on William and I could haul rock up and down the river .

MANYBOATS; thanks for the lesson, just a failed attempt at a little humor as no true southern belle would answer to the name.(though some are as stubborn as one)

Pack Mule - great to hear your up & about. Pack Mule is a great name. I have ridding mules & pack mules. As a fact last Oct one of our pack mules kicked me in the face while feeding - broke all the bones on the right side of my head. Screws & plates followed. One plate & screws came loose. Admeral tells EVERYONE I have more than one screw loose! Keep the humer in everything or it's just another sad story. TONTO.

jimbob,
Indeed I almost married a southern belle and she was fussy about her name. Carolyn. But you better not call her Carolyn. CaroLINE. And ya better make it a bit twangy or you may not like the look she'll give you.

This username game is ridiculous in my opinion. Just makes for confusion and time lost trying to spell them. Better go back. Can't remember if it was cap or lower case ect ect. And many are afraid to list what state, province or city they live in. Often one's post, or response may be different depending on where someone lives ..... but it's a cute computer game ... better not reveal anything or you'll get hacked.

Baugh .. We should all be on a first name basis. And if there's another Jack on TF that's from your town just make up a name.

Sorry I'm not quick enough to get your joke. And by the way Caroline was from Memphis.

Greetings,
Mr. mb. Ah, so Caroline was from Memphis eh? That would make her a Memphis Belle. Quite explosive I can imagine.
