    Novi, MI

    January starts the season of fishing, boat and RV shows for us. The first one for us is being held in Novi, MI. I went with my husband to pick up his ice shanty today. There were lots of boats, displays, demonstrations, and various booths. He's getting quite popular in that circle. Lots of people there knew him and he introduced me to them. There were other professional anglers, lots of tackle business owners, and marina owners. We were sporting our jackets that we received from the Walleyes for Wounded Heroes. A couple of times I was approached and asked questions about it. He had to take over because he is more knowledgeable on the subject. Some of the guys that knew my husband were ribbing him and telling him that we should go sit in the booth. The actual people that will be running the booth aren't going to be set up until Saturday. We finally got to the booth that had his shanty and one of the heroes that went out last fall was working it. My husband tried to convince us both that we already knew each other and we were both denying it. Then he said, " Derek was in the Fall Event." I replied, " And I was back at camp baking cookies." He said, "Oh, yeah." and Derek bounced right over to me and gave me a big hug and said, " You are my hero. Those were awesome." Just made my heart melt.

    Thanks for looking. Oh! And....

    Hello A2coins! I hope this doesn't spook you that I was so close!

    This is my favorite. This SCREAMS ...the difference between men and boys is the price of their toys. It looks like a small child put their model boat in the kiddie pool..

    Thanx for sharing

    I knew some people would like those. My husband has a collection of them himself. He did mention that all those miniature outwards actually run. That was kind of cool.

    I remember when they sold those in the hobby shops. My mom wouldn't buy me one, as they were too expensive. She did however buy me a little electric motor for my erector set.

    Grant, you lived like a king! I had never even heard of an erector set before; all I got were Tinker Toys.

    ....Well, guess I have to be fair though. Before the Tinker Toys, I used to have those great big, ALL-metal Tonka trucks! WOW!! ....But then my big sis and one of her friends just kept taunting me and taunting me. So I Tonka'd the friend upside the head!

    I'll wager a dew worm that the Coast Guard boat was manufactured by MetalCraft Marine in Kingston Ontario, as it sure looks like their build. Went to a few shows in Toronto and I think the boat show is Jan.12-21st a huge event- #1 RULE: Leave the wallet at home.

    hahaha! Yeah that’s what he’s been doing for years! But he doesn’t go past the limit of “living within our means.”

    It works for ya then, that's the best.

    I have heard the two happiest days in a boater's life is : The first day they buy the boat and the day that they sell it"

    There's a lot of folks that get that boater's bug that's called : "Two footitis." (always getting another boat that's 2ft longer)

    Lol! That’s so true! We started with a 14’ John boat in the 80’s and over the years worked our way up to a 24’ Triton. We’re downsizing now. We recently sold my princess boat and only have his Lund, a little bass boat for the pond and my paddle boat. For a while there we were boat poor, not!
