    Meanwhile, welcome, pull up a chair and make yourself
    at home. Always lots going on in these parts.

    I don't eat fish but fishing is another hobby of mine lol. I'm so excited to find this because anything I know about chicks and chickens is from a handful of Facebook groups. I'm in Leesburg so very close to the Ocala National Forest. Nice "meeting" you

    You live in Florida and like to fish...who would guess that.

    I was down in Tampa one time, took one of those fishing boats
    out one day. That was enough. That silly boat went so far out,
    I couldn't see land no more.

    I wanted OFF.

    Spooks like me, don't like water. I am certainly a dry-land Spook.


    Spook...who lives far from the alligators in Florida.

    I have seen the alligators on my tv.
    They run very fast.
    Spook runs very slow.

    I took a boat out 20 years ago and won't do it again I was sick as a dog. But lakes and ponds, fresh water I don't mind. But you gotta be more careful with the moccasins, they're more aggressive, unless it's mating season or you're really messing with them they'll leave. I have kin in Ohio,
