Good morning everyone.
My ex brought me a filet of whitefish and laketrout yesterday, that`s gives me 5 meals.
Next week I`ll be buying a 20 dollar bag of whitefish, you usally get 5-6 fish, that will give me about 15-18 meals, of course that also depends on how much they weight.

Have a nice day.

Top of the morning Celest5,and everyone else.Celest5 sounds like something I do ,question is Tony or Mike.
celeste5 2/19/2013 10:09:50 AM Report

Top of the morning to you, Bounder.
I buy from Tony, just a few times from Mike.
I knew Tony`s family all my life, I lived in Batchewana the first 11 years of my life, that`s where he was from too.
I sensed you knew him, he gained alot of weight, thyroid promblem.
He has a Dickydoo as you called it in the other room, but I call it a Dickdoo,
Anyway I asked him, Holy Christ Tony how in the Hell do you have Sex.
celeste5 2/19/2013 10:39:03 AM Report

Bounder, how many years have you been buying fish off Tony and Mike, you may also know my brother he fished with Tony.

Good Morning C5 and Bounder and all other Red Roomies.

Plus 4 here and wet today. How are you doing Mallet? I really miss seeing Grump and Bobby in the Red Room.

Bobby I hope all is ok with you. It was great meeting you and Grump and the other roomies that summer. I am planning to travel to the Soo this year sometime in August. I have committed to babysitting my grandson until then.

Hope to see you then and any other roomie.

Take care and be safe!

Morning All...

Well lets start by saying "Urghhh" what mother nature has agianst me I do not know, I sure did not need anymore of this white sh&t...

Just under the zero mark here EPC, there was a large tract of open water yesterday, but seemed to have closed up today and the wet snow has covered it over prehaps. Thats about it, just try to keep the backyard reasonably clear and get in firewood, not much else to do around here this time of year..

You all have a safe day out there, and remember that this snow turns to ice very quick under the tyres....

Good afternoon RRoomies!
Rockin' Robbie 2/19/2013 3:22:16 PM Report

Let's think...SUMMER! Last one in the pool is a rotten egg........


Is that YOU swimming down there Wicket?
How about a Pina Colada or two?

Rockin' Robbie 2/19/2013 3:25:06 PM Report

I hope I spelled everything right or I might end up on the Monday Morning list from St. Joe Island!;)
Wicket 2/19/2013 3:40:15 PM Report

Woo hoo, a pool party, someone bring the snackies, I have the booze. Where is the old gang, come on back, quit lurking and start posting again. We need Spelly for 3Tac's story of the week. Let's do it here and forget about the blue room....
Introduce the newbies to what a real social room can be, they have no clue unless they check the archives from a couple years back.
Damn Facebook! broke the Red Room :(
Rockin' Robbie 2/19/2013 3:41:02 PM Report

ker-plunk, cannon ball into the pool, who else is coming in?
FunMan 2/19/2013 4:44:49 PM Report

Seeing that I don't know how to swim, I'll stay in the shallow end and BOB around.
shakespeare 2/19/2013 4:49:39 PM Report

Wicket... I'm game
I'm sure you recognize my green flippers!
mallet 2/19/2013 5:01:00 PM Report


You are all welcome to come out here and have a "dip" I have lots of left over application forms for the "Vienna Boys Choir" I understand they need a few "mature" soprano's.. You can use the Ice mounds as slides would be great fun... and Rum and Pep for those who make it out!!!
Wicket 2/19/2013 5:38:39 PM Report

Hi everyone, glad to see you were up for a fun time in the pool today.

Shakey, I have a new laptop and the search engine is Bing, I don't know how to get rid of it and it overrides Google. After I copy and paste the tiny URL, the computer tells me it doesn't exist, to check that it is accurate, all that crap. I don't know how to get around it. If anyone can help I would appreciate it.
Getting out of the pool now, have to finish making supper,, see you later for the bonfire, hot dogs and marshmallows...
Pilgrim 2/19/2013 5:57:09 PM Report

Hi y'all....just to let you know I'm still around....

Good to see so familiar faces. It would be neat to see how many lurkers, past and present, there really are out there.

They wouldn't haver to post more than a "HI"..

Remember Northbayer, Prrrrr, Dutch, God forbid...The Rev., Zing, etc. There was a good group.

I do remember how we semmed to be there for each other in good and bad times...

Ah...the memories...and I am not putting myself above anyone else...I come here why don't I post something....good question...maybe I should come here first and not the Blue Room...

Note to self..."if you can't walk the walk, don't talk the talk"...
Grump 2/19/2013 6:21:40 PM Report

Wicket caught your post in the Blue Room. That said I'm here to say hello to all the Red Roomies past and present, here or on the side. Have a great day all and maybe this damn snow will go away soon.
Wicket 2/19/2013 6:23:55 PM Report

Hey Pilgrim, nice to see you again. Yes, I think most of us have become lurkers because we don't like the sarcastic comments made by some of the few that post regularly in the blue room. Although we have met some new people and don't discuss politics when we are together - they are nice.
Also, I am just tired of scrolling past all the political stuff and the biblical quotes. If I was interested in that, I would open my door to the politicians and religious zealots that still bother with the door-to-door thing...
RLE 2/19/2013 6:37:51 PM Report

It's a pleasure reading the comments on this site. Hope the quality and quantity becomes the norm.
Wicket 2/19/2013 6:42:32 PM Report

I can remember getting my coffee in the morning, logging on and chatting with our friends at least once during the day on here. Now, I get my coffee, log on, check Sootoday - read the news, check the blue and red rooms, log out and go onto Facebook, check the postings, play some mindless games, little or no real person interaction, leave the computer and do something else.
I miss our friends on here, come on back, Facebook isn't everything.
Wicket 2/19/2013 6:44:07 PM Report

Hi Grump, are you in town? If not, when will you be, want to set up another lunch at the Canadian, wouldn't want you to miss it. Have you heard from Bobby, need him to attend also.
SandyB 2/19/2013 6:52:59 PM Report

Steps in and looks around as instructed on Facebook :)

apparently too late for breakie :)
Wicket 2/19/2013 7:02:33 PM Report

No brekkie, but stick around for the bonfire...we can make smores...
not me 2/19/2013 7:05:36 PM Report

I heard there was a party so I stopped in to say hello and say I am glad spring is to be here in 28 days :)
Wicket 2/19/2013 7:06:39 PM Report




bonfire, marshmallows, hot dogs....

someone else has to bring the buns, mustard and ketchup.

sorry, I'm no artist and that was the best I could do, use your imagination

Hi not me, glad you posted....keep checking in, there should be some more showing up..
Wicket 2/19/2013 7:13:00 PM Report

I think Bounder and Celeste are morning people..:(
not me 2/19/2013 7:15:12 PM Report

At least more action here... in Baytoday there is just me in the net social and the news room is dead, I try to post good morning just to keep it a live :(
DutchTouch 2/19/2013 7:52:02 PM Report

Hi there gang......thanks for the invite Wicket. I miss the good ol' days in the Red Room. I'm not a fan of Facebook and I may get into trouble in the BR ha ha.
Good to see so many familiar names on here. I'd love to touch base with Northbayer if he's still interested in chatting. Also Sam C. He seems to be very quiet lately.
The weather has forced us all indoors with not much to do. I don't knit anymore and TV bores me to no end. I think it has something to do with all those mindless commercials.
Come on Spelly, I'll even mispell a few words on purpose for you.
not me 2/19/2013 8:16:07 PM Report

I found this winter has been bad even with our moods :(
DutchTouch 2/19/2013 8:34:37 PM Report

Hello not me. I've noticed that you are the lonely voice in the desert on the North Bay site. Not a very friendly bunch there. Are you still involved with Habitat for Humanity?
not me 2/19/2013 8:49:55 PM Report

I am but just as a volunteer,along with other charities.
Yes it does get lonely in that net social but just encase some one does lurk I did greet them :)
Bobby Nerves 2/19/2013 9:05:11 PM Report

Good evening all!

Hi Wicket, I've heard you. Let me know the date, if possible not around the end or beginning of the month... sort of the last 5 and the first 5 days of the month.

mallet 2/19/2013 9:10:43 PM Report

Bobby N...

Surely, not the wrong time of the month for you is it??? Sorry could not resist that, Bobby. Catch you and Grump for coffee again one of these days..
Wicket 2/19/2013 9:30:04 PM Report

Yea..... so happy, glad to "see" all of you in here today... let's keep on keeping....see you tomorrow. Time to put the bonfire out - no marshmallows or hot dogs left.

Holy Shite...I missed the partaaaaaaaaay

hello oldtimers... and Pilgrim spring must be coming. the peeps are coming out of hibernation.
anabanana 2/20/2013 1:24:54 AM Report

Hi Posters,

I have been in both rooms for several months. I really don't know why, the one room had so many poster, and the other so few. It is difficult coming on as a new poster, I don't really know one room from the other. Actually the only way I was able to find the rooms, to begin with was be stumbling in; I was looking for something.
I am sorry I haven't been on here for several years.I didn't even know they existed I would not likley post unless I wanted or needed specific informatiom.

I have noticed,some posters get irate
over anothers comments, and they do seem quite rude at times. The next day I am on they seem to be on speaking terms again.
The talk at times is about American politics, I do find it interesting, all the posters views are so diverse

I am 75 next month, and retired several years ago. I like to volunteer now. The weather has been really bad and I refuse to drive in the weather. So I don't drive after dark, or in bad weather.
I really have a time, keeping up with all the latest computer technologies.

I follow all the posters on the sites, it's is as if I know everyone, to some degree or other.
I have often felt like responding to several posts. I back away because I don't want to appear stupid. I will muster up the nerve sooner than later.

Thanks, for letting me in, to a small corner of your world. It is not so lonely in mine any more.
Sam C 2/20/2013 9:41:30 AM Report

...enters room, a day late. Has apparently missed the party. :-(

anabanana... as some of the posts above mention, this used to be THE happening place. Conversations were polite and fun, and many friendships have been made.

Even "the other room" was, at one time, much more civilized. You're right, the discussion there can get very nasty, at times.

Nice to see the Red Room picking up, again.
Are we planning a summer BBQ?
