Whaddau lookin at, dis taint' funny!!!



Hey mom, wake up! Time to play mom, wake up mom!!



Well, you coulda left me somtin!



Thought I would just toss this one in for the ladies...

Three Men on a Hike

Three men were hiking through a forest when they came upon a large raging, Violent river.
Needing to get to the other side,
the first man prayed:

'God, please give me the strength to cross the river.'



Poof! .. God gave him big arms and strong legs
and he was able to swim
across in about 2 hours, having almost drowned twice.



After witnessing that, the second man prayed:
'God, please give me
strength and the tools to cross the river'



Poof! .. God gave him a rowboat and strong arms
and strong legs and he
was able to row across in about an hour
after almost capsizing once.



Seeing what happened to the first two men,
the third man prayed:
'God,please give me the strength,
the tools and the intelligence
to cross the river'



Poof! .. He was turned into a woman.
She checked the map,
hiked one
hundred yards up stream
and walked across the bridge.

OK. Boat pictures. Here's some serious and very true pictures of my last boat and what happened to it. It has since been replaced with a bigger and better one.

First, the story. Pranks.... That summer, kids were playing pranks on vehicles by pulling out the pin that holds the trailer hitch into the vehicle. I know the pin was in because I put it in myself when we left however, I did not check it again before we left for home. We drove for 40 miles before this happened...



The hitch pulled out of the back of my full sized van, whipping the van back and forth at 70MPH. Luckily, the straps broke and the entire boat let loose. If they had not broken free the cop told me the whole van would have eventually rolled with the boat and some very serious killings might have taken place instead of just a smashed boat. The boat rolled down the highway without my van briefly before it started to flip and flip some more eventually going end over end and every which way after that finally coming to rest in the median.



The boat finally ripped away from the trailer doing its own thing, flipping some more and eventually landed just like this.
Ironically, the hull only had one small fracture in it but, the boat and trailer were both totaled regardless.



The motor was all askew.



They strapped the boat and were starting to flip it over to place it back onto the trailer again so they could haul them both away.



Me watching in dismay. Up to that point, the cop said that he had-had 4 of these pranks so far that summer.



It cost me an additional $3,000 to replace and upgrade the boat and of course, now, I have locks on both the trailer and the hitch so this cannot happen again...

Jerry,

That's real hard on that boat!.. That's the same trick that's being done on Semi's at truck stops only you don't even get moving. You start up, let the clutch out and Bang, the trailer's on the support wheels or on the ground if the supports fold up.

I've lost 2 trailer hitches, 1 tank of gas and 2 batteries. Now both have locks.

Hope this season goes better. thumb

Geeze Jerry!
