Morning relevent.
T-777!

I wish that your day goes great.
Incredible morning outside here. Dust and pollen but still. Perfect.

Pukin dog was not fun but she's ill. Gettin grim ; and she passed on morning feeding and retreated to her crate where I'm letting her rest in peace.
She goes out to pee nearly hourly. Then drinks water. Liver is getting worse.

Gettin old sucks. Even for dogs.

Sorry about your pup. We have one nearly 15 and getting real feeble. We really get attached to our animal friends. Wish they lived longer.

Why does it have to be removed/why do they make it do difficult to remove?
It's a coating that gets on the glass from the manufacturing process, not something they deliberately apply. Your mask will fog up if you do not remove it. The coating is invisible, but when you flame the surface of the glass you can see it burn off.

Dive shops generally frown on the flaming method, probably because they sell mask cleaners that are supposed to do the job. They will also tell you to scrub the surface of the glass with a toothbrush and Crest toothpaste, which has a mild abrasive. Neither of these work as well as a lighter.

Mornin P.J.!

Bet it would be a nice time to cruise by paddle out along your waterway today.
Mayby even troll a slow wobbling lure along on the way.
Pike season opener yesterday.
So there was a few out earlier this morning.
Raining here now, so the waters are quiet.
Fair weather folks those fishers are.
I'm going to wait till I don't have to pay for my license.

I /we didn't know it was a friends last Canadian fishing.
Had a warning one cold rainy day when I was running a boat with him in the bow.
I've recounted that before...

Anyways we were headed back to the river we had started from and trolling on the way back just because we were fishing after all , not that we were on a course expecting fish.

He had on a large Johnson silver minnow. The big single hook defended by it's metal weed guard.
And , he started getting some tunks on it.
He'd try to set the hook ., miss the fish and when progress continued and wobble started again he'd get more tunks.

I slowed just a little more and on another tunk he hooked up.
Jumbo perch!
How it got that hook in it's mouth , plus the weed guard depressed ...But he caught it.
(We were fishing pike , walleye at times too.)

I made sure I cleaned/filleted his perch for him and saw to it that he received it after cooking amidst our group.
Glad I did so more today since he's passed.
That cold rainy day was a great one for me in some ways.
Most were up there.

Now any Hobo can tell ya that the scenery by any river is a million dollar view.
So just have to move your box.
I would but thinking about subletting my box. It is right next to Facebook Headquarters so prime real estate. As a matter of fact my bathroom is on their property
