Thank you, Dave. You saved me from "Really Old Fart" status. I can only answer a third of your questions. But I'm only 32, and I scored eleven and a half out of twelve on Paul's quiz. That got me thinking; I work in a tackle shop, which in my books basically means I'm semi-retired. Do you think I qualify for "Honorary Old Fart" status?

Holy crapola dude's...doesn't anybody work for a living anymore. All post after Paul's were done on what I would consider company time. I got to get a job like the rest of you guys so I can post during the day. :rolleyes: I have my CV ready...just need an address.


Rick...by the powers invested in me I now pronounce you "an old fart".
