    your memories for 2003

    At this time of year I get into a depressed mood and like to remember the times we had over the summer months. I don't have many freinds, i can count all of them on one hand, but here on oso I have alot of nice people that who have helped and pointed me in the right direction, Thank you.. I appreicate it

    So tell us what were your good memories for 2003? sorry i don't have any pics, Pics are encouraged

    my memories...

    1. Firing up ole problem child with her the new motor You know that feeling firing it up for the first time

    2. Having Mike ( myboatsbrokewaterfoul) as my co pilot at hardy dam and Being able to meet some great oso guys with sweet boats.

    3. Finally, I was able to blow by my daddy in his boat, it took a year or two, by i did it..

    4. Around the area of my stompin grounds, I was the best, not beat by anybody. It might not be a big deal for you guys, but ever since i was kid I dreamed of being the best and this was a good year.

    5. Getting checked by the local sherriff for excessive noise db meter said 106 db....officer...officer thats legal

    6. Ofcourse ending the year with my motor still in one piece.

    Not alot of memories here, just the better ones which i remember.

    Hope the new year is great for everyone.

    Your freind

    Good thread

    Due to "paying down" our house and
    boat ( less interest $$$$)

    Which leads to what the tax man told us to do,
    " Buy something more expensive"

    Which meant selling the old house and
    building a new one, which, Incidently
    won't be done til this March, so much
    for that deduction.

    Working on countless boats this spring,
    and none of them were mine

    The half a dozen or so trips to LOTO,
    that still didn't seem like enough though.

    After 2 previous tries, NOT GETTING
    BEAT at LOTO shootout.

    4 & 6 from Traviss'es list also apply on
