As I sit here perusing the forums, laalaaI couldn’t help but notice there has been no chatter on the ODSS as of late!
I’m not insinuating that I miss you folks, but deep down, I guess I am frown. So ...... what’s been going on? Plans for turkey day?
Anything? I can forward my Christmas list to you, if you wish dance
Maybe the Northern contingent can get an impromptu cruise rolling, soon?

3 hours and no one has jumped in here. So I will.
Retired life is good here in Mid Missouri and already had some snow on the ground.
We are getting ready for next Saturday because we are hosting all my inlaws for Thanksgiving.

Do you know the difference between inlaws and outlaws?
Outlaws are wanted!

Deer season is wrapping up. I have not heard the numbers yet, but there has been the normal gunshots around our place.
Scares our dog though, but he did score a eight pointer last deer season, swam it to death.
I kid you not, here is a video and pictures I took of him chasing the buck across our pond.

And I hope to attend next years Homecoming. It will be my sixth time.

That's a fine Sporting dog you have Don ! I'm impressed that he got the deer in that manner and didn't give up. Our hunting season in Va is just getting started for regular firearms season..I usually do a great deal of hunting. Oh by the way Don, I'm fine with you sending me an old Pontiac as a Christmas present just in case you were wondering what to get me this year!

That Pontiac has not seen the sun in about 12 years.
All original and never restored.
It has turned into a barn find when if I sell it, or the wife does after I kick the bucket.

And yes, Shep is quite the hunter. Several squirrels, 2 groundhogs and I hate to say it, a few chickens.
Last time I caught him with one, I beat him with it. He hasn't brought any more home since.
I think he learned not to mess with skunks. Last week I drove up to the barn after dark and got one in the headlights.
He just stood there and I just backed away and went back to the house.
2-1/2 years old and he has come home skunked twice.

Hey look! It's a ...
Don, send that dog to Mike Roache and I. We need him to help us get some stripers. We went out Friday and got nada. Had a lot of fun, though. And as always, time on the water is refreshing to the soul.

Turkey day plans at HQ mainly involve a trip to DC in the sporty German supercar to collect Grandma Stovebolt at the aerodrome.

Here's a shot Mike took from the bow -- where he had escaped to because I was about to hook him and use him for bait. eeeek

John,
Looks pretty cold out there with a bit of a chop.

It was chilly (air temp was in the high 40's or 50-ish as I recall) but we were dressed for it. Seas were only 2-3 ft and swells, not chop. It was nice and enjoyable. I was concentrating on the speed and heading so that Mikey wouldn't yell at me ... again. Getting yelled at ... on my own boat ... the things I put up with around here ... brrrrr I got my revenge on the run back to the pier, though .... hehehehehehe eeeek

Sounds like a mutiny to me!
I'm guessing a walk on the old plank would set him straight eeeek

Jim, that's what I said when I saw that picture. Do you think the strippers thought the same thing??

Its is too quiet. I think I may be somewhat guilty because I was not ready for the warm season to end and cold to get here. I did get to spend the day in the shop and tinkered with the One Ton for a while. Every time I do I am amazed at the condition that truck is in. I have been having fun with it.

First time ever, no big plans for Turkey dinner, just me and my wife and a take out dinner. Actually, kind of looking forward to it for a change. I might have to fry up some po'boys and some jumbo lump crab cakes for an appetizer!
