Well, I got another pair of Crocs (http://shop.crocs.com/pc-15-4-beach.asp ... n=products) that match the new boat. These are so comfortable to wear and if they get wet on the boat the water drains out. I also got a Fish Hedz (http://www.fishhedz.net/thegear/mask-white.htm) for those 60+MPH runs in the new boat while its raining or cold. Other than that a few things for the new Laptop and a wallet. My GF got me the Chocolate phone and clothes. All in all pretty good!

Reeljerk, guess time will tell on your present. Will have to wait until September to find out if it was a $20,000 + gift or a $75 lump of coal! But I am sure you will have fun with it either way! I got my Simrad AP14, just have to work up the courage to install it!

Got an early present from a friend that now lives in NC but used to fish the big O. 3 Eagle Claw down rigger rods and 2 dipsy rods :D all used but in very good shape. Dad pitched in with $200 towards my new top and side curtains next March. That was about it for fishing stuff.

My 7year old grandaughter made me a bird feeder at Home Depot, she put the nails in through the sides of the wood all by herself :D:D:D

And Mark saw that I bought a new rug too for the new house about the same price as the top would have been ;(

I scored an XM satellite radio receiver and 6 month subcription for my Sony stereo in my Lund so I can listen to lots of different stuff while I'm walleye trolling. The other great gift I got was the brand new In-Fisherman cookbook from chef Lucia Watson that is chocked full of great recipes for freshwater fish along with some good tips on cleaning and storing your catch. I learned a lot already and last night I made a killer walleye chowder recipe from the book that was outstanding and very easy to make.

The IPOD is Black with a red dial and LCD screen...This thing smokes....I up loaded about 200 pictures to it,700 tunes and a few videos and still have 20+ gigs left,I attached music to the picture slide show hooked up an AV cable to the TV and watched. I am amazed that something so small can do all this and more.


Nice to bump into you @ The Home Depot. That rug looked heavy!!!

Congrats on the new house you had built!!!! NEED A/C??? :lol: or maybe a 4 years service contract??? :lol:

She got to pick it out herself and absolutely loves it,

Heritage Furniture on Ridge Road in Spencerport hand made it out of solid cherry, in a queen ann style. It is wonderful dining room set but I wonder if it will float and if she will let me mount riggers on it....

I am not allowed in the dining room anymore, she won't let anyone near it...

As soon as I win the lottery i am coming for your penn yan....
