Happy birthday Jeff.

I'm thinking maybe a monster GSF got him.

Happy Birthday JHAP. It seems like the California group has gone pretty silent over the past few years.

Have a very good day. Your GSF still doing okay? The GSF Society misses your participation as the founding "father".

I suspect I might have something to do with Jeff's forum absence over the past couple years. Dear JHAP, how many times must I apologize for the mishap at the last PB Conference...when I saw we both opted to wear our GSF skin jumpsuits and chinchilla lined codpieces to the banquet, I fully admit I should have opted to return to my room and changed. I stole your thunder, it's my bad. It's been years now, can we consider it water under the bridge already?

Lynda and and ran immediately after I took this picture. We never looked back.

Does anybody know what happened after that???



Happy birthday JHAP -- even if you are now part of the stratosphere dust.

We miss you!

GITMO? grin


If pigs could fly bacon would be harder to come by and there would be a lot of damaged trees.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes, I sincerely appreciate it.

Rumors of my demise and/or GITMO incarceration have been slightly exaggerated.

Up until the rains this season it was a very tough year for ponds in California. The drought had taken it's toll. Perhaps the rain will restore some of my pond's previous glory.

TJ I have forgiven your fashion faux pas. Every time I wear my Chinchilla Lined Brazilian Cut Neoprene Cod Piece I think of you... wait that doesn't sound right.

Ricki is doing well and still putting up with my antics. She was convinced that I would mellow as I age... like that was ever gonna happen.

After tax season we intend to spend some time at our pond property and when we do I'll give you all an update.

I sincerely miss my Pond Boss friends. I hope all is well with the Pond Boss family.

Happy B'day, old man. We miss you.
I was sitting with Jeff after Tom presented him with his gift. Let's just say, it got messy!


Just do it...

Happy Birthday Jeff.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Happy Birthday. And sorry your day's celebration doesn't include wrestling with the magnificent GSF! Did you happen to read a post of mine from this past summer where I used a fingerling LMB to catch a trophy GSF from my pond? Talk about good times!
