Beloved Pale Hose!!!

21 posts in this topic

Looks like Windy's "Beloved Pale Hose" faultered tonight! Go Twinkies!!!! Let me guess your excuse is no Thome right?? Great game and couldnt ask for a better outcome! Thought i would start this thread because if the game would of had the opposite outcome...you know who would have been right here throwing it in our face.....Here looking at you Windy cool.gif

Oh yes Windy...how "misfortunate" the Sox have been, not having Thome and letting "Bartman" sit in the 2nd row on the foul line......gotta admit though, if Dye had come through instead of fouling it over to Bartman (and why was "he" on the right field side this game anyway?), he could have moved up my list of MVP candidates.

On TV, they showed Guillen saying he only worries when he sees Nathan out there. Well, here's hoping Guillen can't sleep tonight or tomorrow late in the game either.

Early ripe, early rotten boys. I have not even brought up the Thome situation. Every team has injuries, though Dusty sure used that excuse all year! Should be a good game tonight, maybe the umps will let the players play a full 9 tonight. Questionable call, didn't think the fan was extended into the playing field and it sure looked like Morneau was extended into the area that separates the field from the seats. Would have liked to see the players decide the outcome of a great, close game instead of the 1st base ump. Kitties dumped one also so my beloved are no further back, I am not worried about the Twinks. Got to keep the eyes on the prize, the Central crown. YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD...YES! Windy

C'mon, you know better than trying to get a reaction from us on that. That was the easiest call of the night and 100% correct... heck even the hyper active relief pitching coach wannabe (Guillen) didn't argue, nor did his posse'.

Let's see what Contreras has in his tank tonight, he's been a turd burgler lately.

I thought it was clearly a great call, and I listened to the game on the radio. smirk.gif

Seriously though, Ozzie said it was an easy call and he wasn't going to make a fool of himself arguing it. (Or something to that affect)

Your the only one that thinks that was a questionable call! Even the Hawk said it was a good call on today's pregame show. Morneau didn't come close to going in the seats. I would suggest you get your eyes checked out. smirk.gif

3-0 Bad Guys! grin.gif

Twinkies 7-1 in the last 8 against your Sox. If thats not something to worry about I don't know what is.

I thought that game was never going to end. What a win though! The first two games have left me without any fingernails. Punto was huge tonight, first with the sacrifice fly, and then the game winning two out rbi single. I am still shaking. It's unfortunate we weren't able to get the win for Santana, but nonetheless a victory for the team. smile.gif

Windy,

Hey, whatsamatta - nothing to say about the game last night (please don't bring up how Dye homered to tie it - he had the collar and was due but I do give him credit for clutching there) or did your computer breakdown last night about the same time the WSox did? And in ref to your comment about not bringing up the Thome situation, well we all know it isn't just what you do say but many times what you don't say that ignites the Twin faithful.

Seriously now, to you Twin fans that are talking up Mauer and Morneau as MVP candidates - I really think your team MVP's are those newer guys Tyner and Bartlett. Without them, I am sure it could have been a much diff/worse record. Teamgame for sure, don'tchathink? Why, even Rincon contributed to their victory last night (nyuk, nyuk)!

Oh, and anybody else notice that play by Castillo against Pods - great or what? Pods loafed outta the box 'cause he thought it was gonna zing past the infield, and that cost him. I HATE to see anybody loaf at any time....just burns my butter!

Good point Geno! If Castillo doesn't make an out of this world play in the ninth, Dye's homer may have been of the three run variety and game over! I guess you can overpay these players, but you still can't make them hustle on every play... poor Podsednik!!

I wouldn't worry about the Twins either. They just took 2 of 3 from ya, lead the wildcard race and have been the best team in baseball since June.

Hmmmmm....I am interested in the "excuse" as to why the wind setdown so suddenly. I mean, even after victory, the wind is calm here in the third, not second, city.

      I think you need to go back to basics. What you are trying to do doesn't have to be reinforced in just the boat.

      You need that dog to obey and listen to each command you give. If you are trying to get her to sit/stay then that's what you need to work on.

      You can practice and work on that command every time you open the door to the kennel to let the dog out. You tell her to sit/stay and you open the door. If she doesn't you know close the door and repeat.

      Every time you give your dog a bowl of food don't just give it to her make her sit/stay before she get its. There are  varieties of situation that the sit command can be used for. Start with small exercises and work your way up to bigger more complicated tasks, repetition, repetition repetition. Be sure to praise and always try to end work on a positive note. 

      I think the most important thing is don't give a command you cant reinforce.

      I made it out last night, saw a small buck and a nice doe at 20 yards but to quite to hear them and since I'm in some really thick stuff I didn't see them until they were on top of me.  Also saw another deer 40 yards away but couldn't tell what it was, then spooked something behind (not the direction the deer normally head to in the evening) me as I was getting down.  Almost had a Coyote in the CRP grass when I was walking out, big sucker and the second one see in two sits now (one by my wife and now by me), the land owner said that they are coming up on to his yard now.  I've hunted this ground for 12 years and this is the first year I've seen a coyote while hunting.

      Here's a couple of views from the stand, going to move it to the edge of the CRP field that is about 30 yards behind me.

      Made it out for a very short sit Saturday Night. Thunder storms had my son and I scrambling for the truck. Our view. Lots of good deer sign in area. Early SE Corn.JPG

    • 750 this week only Im losing money on this but would rather have someone be able to use it than for it to just sit around. After this week I am going to winterize it and it will no longer be for sale.

    • How is she on the sit command?  That is the basis of everything.  She needs to learn to sit still and wait until the next command.  I don't even teach my dogs "stay" because it isn't necessary if they are solid on "sit".  Every dog has the ability to be steady, it is up to you to teach them.  A lab that isn't steady in the boat is not only annoying, it is potentially dangerous with loaded guns and the potential to capsize a boat in open water. 

      If she knows sit but just needs some reinforcement, it may just take a couple trips where you don't even bring the gun along and let others shoot while you handle the dog. 

      If she's real bad, I would recommend going back to the basics. It will be tougher with an older dog versus a puppy but is definitely worth it. Check out the retriever training DVDS by Bill Hillman. They are spendy but definitely worth it.

      Looking for advice on keeping the dog focused and quiet in the duck boat.  Was out today and we shot enough ducks to keep her busy, however my dog is such a hyper hypo that it's a  little annoying.  Either whining or jumping back and forth from the front and back of the boat.  Do I just need to establish the expectation and keep on her till she finally gets it or is this how some dogs are in the boat? This is her 4th year duck hunting and she has continued to improve each season.  Overall I am happy with her work, especially with the limited amount of hunting I do.  We were out today for 3 hours, shot 8 birds and she did great on the retrieving end and is pretty much focused on the skies, but if something is not constantly dropping from them I feel like I have a screaming baby on my hands.  It's not really that bad, just very annoying.   I would just like her to sit in her spot, stare at the skies and wait for my command.  Is this to much to ask?

      she's getting big

      She's up to 38 pounds at a few days short of 5 months and does not stop going 100 mph. She got exposed to a lot of feathers this weekend at duck camp. She retrieved dead ducks and geese in the yard after our hunts. The goose was a bit big so I chopped a wing off and worked with that after she picked it up and barely made it back a short distance to me.

      Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort Lake of the Woods, Northwest Angle 9/25/16

       

      Happy Fall!

       

      On the Minnesota side fishing has been great around Soldier’s and Mergan’s Point. Most points have been producing fish as well as bays due to shiners moving into the bays. Raps and spinners have been successful as well as 3/8 ounce jigs with the jig bite turning back on. Shiners, crawlers and fatheads have all been attracting the fish. The magic depth has been between 8 and 18 feet. The duck and goose opener has been successful with many resident birds still around we have not seen any signs of northern birds in the area. There have been many Woodducks and Mallards around.

       

      Over on the Ontario side the Walleye bite has been great and the Crappies are picking up. Anglers have been targeting fall spots and jigging in 18-28 feet of water. Emerald shiners are on the move to spawn so watch for them in channels and bays with creeks. The water temp is cooling down and is approximately at 62 degrees. Trolling for Muskies in 10-18 feet has also been good.

       

      The leaves are starting to change colors and there is definitely a chill in the air but, there is still plenty of time to get in on some wonderful fall fishing. The best part about fall fishing is some of the great wildlife you get to see out and about. Also, it is a good time to start thinking about your winter ice fishing trip, we would love to have you as our guest!

       

      Until next week, good luck fishing!
