    Cushtie number there Ronnie, 1966 I was either pulling a headrope at ring-net in summer or humping coils of rope down the deck at seine-net in the winter, oh to know then what I know now but we were both young and foolish,
    some people say things never change awe the same  :)

    Debra, cure for headache, stubbing your big toe on the door makes you forget about the headache  :whistle:
