    Congrats on a great catch. I hope you didn't practice "catch and release".

    That is something that never crossed my mind and it should have, my mom fell and broke her hip on 9/11 and was in hospital in Va during the 9/11 attack. I know how much pain she was in and how long the recovery was.

    I know what you mean, had wood stove when I lived in Missouri, use to cut and split my own wood.

    Congrats on the hundred yard dash. You're way ahead of me!
    Hat had chin strap, but the wind gusts were 25-30 mph, my back was to wind and flipped my hat forward into river before I knew what was happening.

    Fish are good, we are catching spanish mackerel, mangro snapper, blue fish, pompano, black drums and blue crabs from there.

    I use to enjoy running, I was fastest in my platoon in basic training, also ran 5 miles a day 5 days a week when I was in martial arts, I studied Taekwondo for 8 years, made 2nd degree black Belt and fought 3 times a week.

    Personally the Second it was out of reach, all that would have crossed my mind was Home, Store, or Ebay
    Will probably be my choice next time, just didnt want to go rest of day with no hat and wasnt ready to go home.

    Maybe even brushing up on a mini grappling hook technique is also in order...

    of course neither seem like a good idea to retrieve a sandwhich which was the last thing I dropped overboard fumble fingering it while leaning over. :/
    Grappling hook wouldn't have worked, current was too fast, hat was 20 foot away with in 10-15 seconds, I had one chance to snag it with rod when it fell and then it was out of reach. About 8 foot from floor of walkway to river below and walkway has 4 foot guard rail.

    LOL, I clip their flight feathers on wings. They can fly down but not enough flight feathers to gain altitude. I do that because we have ceiling fans and one was flying in room to cage and was almost hit by fan that was on.

    If the Sun's real bright, I'll put on a hat, otherwise it's a do-rag.
    Stays on much better, and keeps the shiny top of my head warmer.

    Same here..chrome on top and silver on the sides.

    If I'm out in the Sun prospecting or doing yard work, I'll
    wear a boonie hat. The do rag keeps my head warm, and
    even though it's warming up a bit, we're still near freezing at
    night.

    Being 125 mi. NE of Seattle, getting too much Sun is generally
    not a concern...
