I have a good reason why I won't make an entry. I've worked 6 days a week for the last 4 months. I'm just lucky if I can get laundry done. Three short fishing trips are all I've managed this summer. :(. My wife also gave birth to our daughter in May. Sometimes getting outside isn't an option.

I see where your priorities are, lol. :lol:

Hey, if you were able to get out fishing three times, you could have shot a few photos and made it an entry. 74 and more did.

Anyway, congrats on getting a new daughter.

The boat with a 40HP outboard would have disqualified all of them.

My excuses:

Work
School
My knees have gone wonky and I'm walking with a cane for the time being. Bugging out without a motor vehicle is not currently an option.

hmm... new baby a few months ago? I missed an entire season after my daughter was born. She'll hopefully be good to go on a few outings with Dad this fall, before the winter weather rolls in. ;)

CONGRATULATIONS!!

p.s.s be sure to take pics/video when you do get out there with her.

Well, the Contest Dates have past and there were several new enteries during the Extended Dates and I am thankful that so many stepped up to my taunting.

If you went out this past weekend, hurry up and get your entry in to be included in the Summer 2013 MBO Contest.

Good luck to everyone (but I want to win!) :wink:

My excuse: I work Tues-Friday evenings and nights, then I work Saturday all day. I then teach Sunday School at church Sunday morning, and have a regular D&D on Monday night.
When I was born, they told me the chance of getting out of this life alive was slim.

Still off work with my knee injury, and have developed Complex Regional Pain Syndrome... Which is more painful than unmedicated labour apparently. Wish I could even walk up an incline....

Hang in there 72hours. Walking is still painful and difficult for me. EVERY step with my right ankle hurts. :crazy: My ankle rolls and is unstable, but it will be the rest of my life, or at least until the Talus bone completely dies from poor circulation and collapses. Then, if/when that happens, I will need a Total Ankle Fusion or a Total Ankle Replacement surgery.

I hope your knee gets better soon.
