    HOW about Fly Fishing? Let's see your outfits . . .

    Same here - mostly modern gear, and I have fun tying my own flies. Now even vests are considered too old fashioned - everyone use slings and chest packs. I needed a vest (our "uniform" as volunteer teachers at the local salmon hatchery) and my friends at Orvis said "A vest? Do you have a...

    Akubra Overload

    I know if you order an Akubra from David Morgan, they'll reblock/reflange (whatever you call it) to make the hat a long oval.

    What are you wearing today??

    Gfish - It recently has been, until yesterday, oddly humid for Seattle. Maybe more correctly - some heavy air / muggy weather beyond the norm. But as everyone here says, "That's Junetober in Seattle!"

    Family Heirloom Signet Ring

    If you decide to have a ring made - a thought is to have the existing ring melted down to create the new ring. Parts of my great great grandmother's wedding ring are now parts of a dozen or so rings of various cousins, aunts, uncles & other family members. And after decades of wearing, rings and...

    What would it be, if you could own just one thing?

    A log and stone craftsman style camping lodge - small, maybe just one bedroom - off in the woods with a babbling brook or trout & salmon stream just down the hill or lakeside, with cedar canoe...the latter of while might be the only means of reaching said abode.

    Do people reciprocate your dinner invitations?

    As Connery said, we have friends over for dinner because we enjoy it and we enjoy their being here. If they reciprocate, fine. If not, equally as fine, because I feel the fun we have here is equal or greater than the effort & funds expended on planning and executing the dinner party, brunch...

    Dinner Party Etiquette

    I like the comment above - bite back like your aunt. Since it's been an ongoing situation, and since your parents enable him by allowing him to continue by not reigning him in, continuing to invite him, and allow him to become drunk and disorderly with no repercussion, at some point, i think I...

    P-51 crash at Reno Air Races

    Five feet of wing was cut off either side - getting rid of 10 foot of wingspan and then having to cut back on elevators and ailerons and such, on a relatively small plane, just sounds nuts to me from the get-go.

    "Surviving Mommie Dearest" : Joan Crawford's home movies

    A quote above - "I don't know. If she says life with Joan was like that, then I believe her." Why believe her? That's only one side of the story, told about a dead woman who can't defend herself, by a daughter cut out of the will. Interestingly enough, some of the stories Christina related...

    Press Pass!

    I know there are some in the props sets at http://www.cthulhulives.org/ but I don't know if there are any there in the freebie sets. I bought the prop CD sets three or four years ago for a show I was peripherally involved with, and I've used various other items from the sets since. I don't have...
