I am also more of a northern pike guy. Love the fight and the flavor.
But a limit of nice bluegills is my fav fish meal.
I don't miss the skeeters!

Well now you've done it Jim, didn't anyone warn you, retirement never gets a break, never gets a day off, never gets a vacation it never ends!

You might have lost trac of time before, now you'll loose complete days!

Well good luck, and before you know it you'll be reading this thread 2-3 times a day! Congrats!

Like the round one (me) is prone to say.
The only problem with doing nothing is yuh never know when you're finished. Congratulations and my DW claims it is the only occupation worth training for.

You stole my thunder but the saying is:

Being retired is hard work. You never know when you are finished.

Jim,
Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Enjoy every minute of it.

p.s., being retired some days you don't have to get up until 12:00 p.m. and then some days you can do it twice.

Texas here we come....

My home town/city has gone roundabout crazy. They plant 'em where there was determined to be a traffic snarl due to multi-lanes at a traffic signal. Their "theory" of improving the snarl has fallen apart. Roundabouts are fine for light to moderate traffic times, but at rush hour, they are a massive mess. Body shops love roundabouts ... great for business.

Another boneheaded thing is the do-gooder civic clubs come out and plant vegetation in the center of the circle. This crap grows up and becomes a visual barrier that blocks any chance for drivers to see traffic that is entering the roundabout until a "surprise speeder" pops out from behind the screen.

There is a city in the SE that has removed its roundabouts because of the hazard to pedestrians. Imagine how much fun it is to attempt to walk or bike across a roundabout intersection!

I put my two cents in (opened my big mouth) at a city council meeting concerning this issue. Might as well been talking to a brick wall. The city is determined to keep up with the in vogue trend of surrounding towns. One council member suggested that they could put in traffic signals that the pedestrians would activate when wanting to cross. HELLO !!?? A roundabout with stop lights? Another bright suggestion was to build overhead bridges for pedestrian walkways. That likely would work, but the cost is astronomical compared to a simple "X" intersection with properly timed traffic signals.
