    We retired guys always have to check what day it is when we go out. Heaven forbid we get in an accident, and the doc asks "what day is it?". I don't give a rat's ass what day it is, like Jim says, every day is Saturday!
    I'd think about going, but I know I'll be skiing with her Ladyship.

    Well Jim thinks every day is a Saturday because his mind is old. He also thinks the year is 1959 and Ike is president.

    Since all my days run together I have to think on what day it is. If my wife didn't work(Her choice, I wish she didn't). I would never know what day it is.

    Jim, truthfully every day is a Saturday for me also. About half the time I have to check and see what the day really is.

    I'll show. I'll hit the mountain on Friday. I was just thinking it over, I might as well get my monies worth out of my state license. It would be the first time all year I've fished somewhere where my fishing license is needed.

    Who said Ike isn't president? I still have my "We Need Adley Badly" bumper sticker on my truck. Of course Ikes president. Who's the hare brained young pup that doesn't know that?

    If you want a surprisingly good breakfast try the Texaco gas station in Ephrata, they have a little cafe in there that makes breakfast burritos that are a must on my fishing adventures in the area.

    My vote for the "Insiders Tip of 2012"... who they hell would have ever guessed that. Now I can have breakfast at Texaco and dinner at Blustery's across the street :cool:

    Blustery's? Not familiar with that one. The Taco Maker as it is formally referred as for those in the know is well worth the stop. It is inside the Chukar Hills Texaco right on the main drag before you head South towards the Ford. I know if I'm able to make it over Saturday that I'll be stopping. I'll pick up one breakfast burrito for breakfast and one for lunch. They are also good cold.

    Where are you fishing that you don't need a license?

    Patrick, he said he didn't need state license but I'd bet he has a Colville license (unless he's a member). I have both as the Colville lic. is needed lots of places up here and opens up lots of possibilities.
