    I know this wasn't directed at me, but it helps a great deal. Okay so, "Frog." Good to know ! Instead of "Rana do you want us to call you "Frog" instead (kinda like the character Sally Field played in the insanely funny Burt Reynolds movie, Smokey and The Bandit)? Her "handle" was "Frog." It was a fantastic movie. Jackie Gleason's sumbitch, the stuttering of Jerry Reed, Pat McCormick and his elf look-alike etc.. just an all-star cast. I guess it was just a smidgen before your time. But ya, "Frog" is awesome ! I like it !

    They mustered me out of a bed at Balboa on a Saturday, Dec 62.

    A J.G. from Admin and my Chief were there. Told the J.G. to go F'ck himself and he got all worked up until he was told by P.J. that he couldn't do chit. I was no longer in the service.

    Paul and I caught the ferry and went back to the Tradewinds and got drunk.

    A good time was had by all.

    Here's an article about the founder of Solon News. Let's all go to the go fund me site. I believe all of the liberals here should support him. Poor guy.

    Yes I did read the whole article. Just a bunch of liberal BS from a progressive journalist and a left wing website.
    If I posted an article from a right wing website would you read it and agree with it. Like I said, I don't know you but I bet that you wouldn't have a positive comment about it. Just saying.

    Why wasn't this included in the article that you posted? Was it left out because it didn't fit your's or their's agenda?

    This thread (and others like it - the political ones I guess you could say) truly show how the Libs just can't let go. Even some of the Lib media is finally seeing that as an issue and calling for for others in their camp to just stop all the bellyaching and let him (Trump) do the job he was hired to do.

    All I know is, my retirement accounts have never seen this kind of increase before. My investment numbers are off the charts. Obama did me no favors whatsoever. My money was all over the place with him - losing, small gains, more losses. Entitlement programs that should never have been implemented didn't help either. Just couldn't say that publicly at the time because the sensibilities of others would have been dramatically impaired beyond belief.

    Except that little pesky second amendment. We should ban social media, the mainstream media, and see if that helps. Maybe we can ban trench coats. Heck if we ban schools we can guarantee we will never have another school shooting. If the second amendment is not guaranteed then neither is the first or any other rights.

    I really should do a treatise on the San Diego Sportfishing industry as I lived it during San Diego sportfishing's rise from a smallish operation to being the most modern and well-run sportfishing fleet in the world.

    Basically I grew-up in the industry. Bill Hoss, Howard Minor, Barney Miller, and several other "M's" started H&M. One of the "M's" was my family.

    Although most of my historical information was lost in the 'devastation' I do have a San Diego Union clipping of me at four years old catching bunches of mackerel on a handline. The article mentions that I have not yet learned the way's of a reel. That photo was taken, as I recall, at the cannery outflow in the commercial basin off what is now Shelter Island.

    I have a few others including a large 'scooter', barracuda, that won the kid's fishing tournament when I was eight. That was the same year that I caught my first Marlin also, off the sportboat "Smokey stover."

    Shot my first deer at nine years of age in Murphy Canyon across from where the Wal-mart complex is. San Diego was a great place then. Mission Valley was all dairy farms and the undeveloped part of the valley was still in it's primitive state. Met Josie (Josephine) Scripps, the 'Black Sheep' of the Scripps family while digging Indian artifacts on her ranch. We liked each other and she piqued my interest in 'rockhounding' and we had a great time together. She once said to a friend that she liked to have me with her when exploring because "Kid's pick up everything." Fun times...

    But, I am wandering. I will try and get time to tell you about the sports during the time that I was involved in the industry but for now, the boats worked? Almost all of H&M's and many of Point Loma's (Olde Ironsides, Betty Lou,...) there was no Fisherman's Landing then. It took over the restaurant/bar space that was there. Lot's of tales from there also. That building and the Marlin Inn, which is now a best Western or some chain organization across the street were discarded WWII wave barracks that were floated across the bay and installed there. The war brought many great and innovative changes to help grow the fleet, including new 6-71 Detroits to convert the gas boats with. Surplus, it 'made' the modern fleet.

    The LO-AN was my uncle's boat and he later had the NEW LO-AN built. The boat name came from the fact that he had to get a LOAN to build her, something he hated to do.
