    Chortle chortle

    A tourist in Vienna is going through a graveyard and all of a sudden he hears music. No one is around, so he starts searching for the source. He finally locates the origin and finds it is coming from a grave with a headstone that reads: "Ludwig van Beethoven, 1770- 1827". Then he realizes that the music is Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and it is being played backward! Puzzled, he leaves the graveyard and persuades a friend to return with him. By the time they arrive back at the grave, the music has changed. This time it is the Seventh Symphony, but like the previous piece, it is being played backwards. Curious, the men agree to consult a music scholar. When they return with the expert, the Fifth Symphony is playing, again backwards. The expert notices that the symphonies are being played in the reverse order in which they were composed, the 9th, then the 7th, then the 5th. By the next day the word has spread, and a crowd has gathered around the grave. They are all listening to the Second Symphony being played backward. Just then the graveyard's caretaker ambles up to the group. Someone in the group asks him if he has an explanation for the music. "I would have thought it was obvious," the caretaker says. ” He’s decomposing!” [emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Day in the bay

    Weather forecast excellent, a hopeful trip looking for a Cod. Myself, Dave,Norman and Chris as a mediator left for the 9.30 bridge. Weather forecast being correct we soon got out to our first mark. First drop I had a double header of Rays which was a first, Dave followed with an Undulate and Norman kept his end up with a doggy! Sorry about the hose incident Chris and Norman, you both needed a wash anyway😜🙈. A few more bits and pieces before Norman hit the jackpot with a Smalleyed Ray, new species. With slack water we moved offshore and found an interesting feature that was “sure “ to hold Cod🤔. We had Congers, Pout, Black Bream, Doggies action from the start. After an hour a huge splash 50m away, right next to the boat and a Thesher was on the hunt. After putting out a whole Mackerel with no response from the Thresher, the fishing had stopped like a light switch so a move required. Another bank found and because we hadn’t had a bite in 5 minutes the skipper obviously had no idea. Norman peaked with a double header of Spotted Ray and a Brill for tea, a few more Bream caught, we let Dave catch the better ones for some tea, even if he did drop the best one back in🤣🤣🤣 Back In for the 4.30 lift in beautiful conditions, seeing Marichelle by the Old town bridge. It was a stunning day and the banter was really excellent, thanks for all your crewing boys and let’s hope the Cod join us next time.

    Trump and the devil

    Trump has a heart attack and dies. He goes to Hell where the Devil is waiting for him . " I don't know what to do " says the Devil ." You're on my list but I have no room for you . But you definitely have to stay here , so I'll tell you what I'm going to do . I've got three people here who weren't quite as bad as you . I'll let one of them go , but you have to take their place . I'll even let YOU decide who leaves ." Trump thought that sounded pretty good so he agreed . The Devil opened the door to the first room. In it was Richard Nixon and a large pool of water. He kept diving in and surfacing empty handed over and over and over , such was his fate in Hell. "No !" Trump said . " I don't think so . I'm not a good swimmer and I don't think I could do that all day long ." The Devil led him to the next room. In it was Tony Blair with a sledgehammer and a room full of rocks . All he did was swing that hammer , time after time after time . "No ! I've got this problem with my shoulder. I would be in constant agony if all I could do was break rocks all day ! " commented Trump . The devil opened a third door. In it , Trump saw Bill Clinton lying naked on the floor with his arms staked over his head and his legs staked in spread-eagle pose. Bent over him was Monica Lewinsky , doing what she does best . Trump looked at this in disbelief for a while and finally said, “Yeah, I can handle this." The Devil smiled and said, “Monica, you're free to go Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The building permit

    Some have asked what I've been doing in retirement. Well, I applied for a building permit for a new house. It was going to be 100 ft. tall and 400 ft. wide, with 12 gun turrets at various heights, and windows all over the place and a loud outside entertainment sound system. It would have parking for 200 cars and I was going to paint it green with pink trim. Then I was gonna hire some idiot to stand on top of it and SCREAM as loud as he could three or four times a day. The City Council told me; Forget it...AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN! So, I sent in the application again, but this time I called it a "Mosque." Work starts on Monday. And here is the best part, it's going to be tax exempt! I love this country. It's the government that scares me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    As the weather's bad ! So are the Jokes ! Did you know that China tried to organize a table tennis tournament for their zoo animals this year? It was abandoned after the gorillas kicked off, in what has become known as… The Hong Kong, King Kong, ping pong, ding dong! Jim

    Day in the bay

    Glad you found some Ray's, the only ones we could catch were sunrays ! They had deserted the original ( secret ) ray mark and it had turned into a kennel club and baby smoothound mark! Saw big shoals of bass just under the surface but they disappeared as soon as we put some bait in. Lovely day to be out ......don't any of you go to work?😁

    Need more Power?

    Bugger servicing or fueling up that lot. I struggle to get out enough now, so that would make each trip very costly

    Day in the bay

    That's the second time out with jerry in as many weeks and two cracking days fishing. Not only was the fishing good the tea was also superb we didn't run out this week. Chris kept Norman on the straight and narrow and made sure Norman and Jerry tangled them selfs and left me out of it, oh I do love my Tubertini up tider. Next time the cod better look out.

    Where to keep my boat?

    Based on your travel patterns, I think I might try something different. I'd put in solid ground anchors at your new house, and secure your boat there for most of the year - your cheapest option. I'd seek an easy-access option for just July and August while you're around, such as Cobbs dry stack/Rockley ashore or Cobb's Quay F pontoon on a monthly deal (if they'll play). That will give you the most leisure time afloat per day during that key period when using the boat, instead of dragging it around. For the rest of the year, I'd either trail and self-launch at one of the slipways in the area (or multiple slipways to explore other areas), and accept the hassle with waders, day fees, hosing off and towing OR see if Rockley or Cobbs would use their dry storage equipment to lift your boat from the trailer, and launch/retrieve it for you, to save some of the hassles, but at a higher per-trip cost. If you used your boat a couple of times per month when you're around in these quieter times (and with wet/windy weather and shorter day length), it might give you a better boating experience for those days you choose to go out. I have a neighbour with a very similar boat on his drive, and he doesn't use it much due to the hassle of trail/launch/clean, but wants to hang onto it in case the ideal day comes along when he's free....
