Default Aerial Carp in southern Illinois

Went out to the Kaskaskia river last weekend to give Asian carp a try. What a blast and what a challenge! We shot until our arms were about to fall off. Ended up with 3 in the boat! Can't wait to go back again.

Good shootin', and kill 'em all. But be careful out there. Chris Brackett got his fiance's jaw broken jumping those fish recently. Second broken jaw I am aware of, but probably don't know about others. So he took her to the hospital, where she got wired up, and then he went back to the river with the gang to shoot more the same day.

Anyway - here is a tip - PROTECT YOUR THROTTLE mechanism. The carp can hit your throttle from the side and break it off, but also they can floor the boat, either forward or reverse, causing the boat to react violently and you can crash or end up out of the boat. (I have experienced two instances of the fish knocking the throttle FORWARD, so protect it both ways and from side hits.)

Cool Beautiful Smile and Love!

bump!!hahaThe poor are very wonderful people. One evening we went out and we picked up four people from the street. And one of them was in a most terrible condition,and I told the sisters: You take care of the other three. I take care of this one who looked worse. So I did for her all that my love can do. I put her in bed, and there was such a beautiful smile on her face. She took hold of my hand as she said just the words “thank you” and she died. I could not help but examine my conscience[良心]before her and I asked what would I say if I was in her place. And my answer was very simple. I would have tried to draw a little attention to myself. I would have said I am hungry, that I am dying, I am cold, I am in pain, or something, but she gave me much more-she gave me her grateful love. And she died with a smile on her face. As did that man whom we picked up from the drain[阴沟、下水道], half eaten with worms, and we brought him to the home. “I have lived like an animal in the street, but I am going to die like an angel, loved and cared for.” And it was so wonderful to see the greatness of that man who could speak like that, who could die like that without blaming anybody, without cursing anybody, without comparing anything. Like an angel-this is the greatness of our people. And that is why we believe what Jesus had said: I was hungry, I was naked, I was homeless, I was unwanted, unloved, uncared for, and you did it to me.Thsale is a professional, loyal and reliable wow gold supplier online, we pioneered selling cheap wow gold.
