Jonny's recovering from surgery on his appendix yesterday, and let's all wish him a speedy recovery. There's work to be done, deer to be hunted, fish to be caught! grin.gif

Hope your recovery goes well there Jon, you don't need that organ anyway. grin.gif

Sure hurts like a SOB when an appendicitis attack comes on, yikes! Had mine out about 3 1/2 years ago now.

They asked me to rate my pain in the ER on a scale of 1 to 10. Even though I replied 10, I still wasn't a priority there.

I thought I had a stomach ache that wouldn't go away, next thing I know I'm in the dang hospital again.

Pretty amazing what they can do now days, three little punch holes in my belly and that is it in and out in one night.

Better now then later I guess. I'm have been getting ready for early ice pike fishing, rigging tip-ups, checking over portables so on and so forth so good to get it out of the way now instead of big pike time.

Should of had yours removed in 3rd grade like I did. Was at home for 2 days after it exploded before I couldn't walk any more then decided i'd better tell mom to take me to the hospital.

Happy Recovering!!

I got a 4" scar on my gut where they took mine out, and if memory serves me it was like 3 days in the hospital. Sounds like they are a bit better at it these days.

Good thing they got it before ice fishings season grin.gif

Get better soon Jon. Red Lake needs you.

You don't need that particular organ any. Just takes up more space. If I had to find a bright side in it, I'd say you can now eat more. grin.gifcrazy.gif

I can't even see the scars where they went in to take mine out. I think I had 3 small 1/2" incisions. They send a camera in the one incision and the other tools in the other incisions. In and out of the hospital in 1 day with about 2-3 days at home recovering. Its really wasn't that bad.

Being a "tough guy" and not recognizing the pain is what will get you in trouble. I had a horrible gut/side ache that I kept trying to walk off thinking it would go away. It never did. Finally took a couple buddies to tell me I looked like crap and should get to the ER. Glas I listened to them.

Hope all is well Jon, the deer are waiting for you on one of you rice beds. They are in rut now, so hopefully you can go and shoot a nice one! Glad to hear you are doing fine, and maybe send the women down to Bemidji to get you some NEEDED gear for early ice! When they return leave a note saying a buck was grunting and running around the house so you had to go take care of him so he doesn't get dizzy! grin.gif

I know but they wouldn't let me have it! Told me it has to be checked for bad stuff then disposed of properly. Figure the dang thing cost me enough money I should get to keep it.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      I must have missed it, but where are the fish pictures?

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
