Unfortunately, due to the change in ownership of this web site and the lack of response by the owners to my requests to remove my email address from all administrative-level notifications and functionality, I have decided to remove my posts on AKFF. Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish.

leigh
went to sea
cause he was sick of IT
caught a grinner
for his dinner
what a winner

then his boat
ceased to float
he left the bungs out , i note

fell in the water
with his daughter
then he caught a
cold
and was told
by his wife to mow the grass
before he got another leave pass.

Errrrr, is that the long way to say "Donut"? Can we all use that now in our trip reports? In preference to saying "donut" we can now say "The Red Clause" (not to be confused with "santa") or the "Red Ballard"

I thought you said "the missus wants a flathead" ????
Do you have another poem to describe the not-so-serene scene when you got home and advised/reported to the family that "pizza seems like a good idea?"

Gee, tears of sorrow dripping into my tea! I think those of us with family at "that" age can relate to those words, it's been Sunday mornings only for me too lately and for all the same reasons!

Ahhhh Red don't feel too bad.
Have a look at this, a REAL fisherman!
Seems this guy was happy to sit under a rock at Home beach on Stradbroke Island and had a donut as well.

Nice weather, calm seas, I'm guessing Red fell asleep somewhere under a rock ..... writing poetry.

PS. Photos were taken on Sunday the 29th of July 2012 by a diver, Dusan Zencak, on a trip out to flatrock to see the Grey Nurse sharks. Looks like there might be some more competition from real fisherman in the bay!

Nice day for a paddle eh Red lol remember a bad days fishing is better than a good day at work :)

I'll be up your way, sort of in two weeks time. If the stars align i'll try to drop by, i'll bring the ice coffee.

You do write better poetry than Grinner.

Well at least I'm not the only one not getting amongst them.

Geeze Red, you should have donuts more often, if it is going to bring out the poet in you. You never fail to entertain.
Never mind ... there's always tomorrow. (^_^)

I hear you
384
That's since the last fishing trip - period
I can't think when I last took the yak out :(

Does this mean that even though Lily is getting older (18 months now) I can't expect a pass any time soon?

Daycare is your friend. Otherwise it's pre-school. Just 1200 days to go ;-) .
