    I used to feel the same way but then one day I just didn't feel like ordering a glass of straight bourbon so I got a Manhattan instead, just for the hell of it (Well, actually it's probably because I read about them so often on here!), and now I almost always order them when I go out to drink. I'm by no means an expert but it's surprising because from the recipes I've read online the places by me don't even really know how to make Manhattans! Anyway, I'm sure you'll get there.

    What is that thing you're holding in your avatar??
    Looks kind of like a fish, only smaller.

    I live in West Liberty...lived here all my life except for the 5 I spent at EKU. Where do your inlaws live?

    Ouch, Ed. Making fun of the size of a man's fish is almost as bad as making fun of his...well...truck!

    I see how it is...the gloves are coming off, my friend!

    That is a 4 pound, 10 ounce largemouth that I caught at Cave Run Lake last summer. It takes me about 20 minutes to get to the nearest boat ramp there.

    Soccer? Biking? Are you really an Edwina, Mr. Ed?

    Re: love reading the reviews

    Now that I live in NY my freshwater days are over.

    I use fish like that for bait!!!!

    I've had nigiri bigger than that.

    (BTW: My truck's probably bigger than yours too!!)

    The stripers are runnin' off the South Shore of Long Island. (The real ones, not those Island of Dr. Moreau Hybrids)

    You gotta thow'm back if they're less than 48".

    Re: love reading the reviews

    I'll admit that I've caught the saltwater fishing bug. We only get to the coast one week a year, but I fish all I can from the surf. There is a small reef and a bunch of rocks down the way from where we usually stay (Siesta Key, Fla) and there is pretty good fishing there. I've yet to rent a boat and fish the inlet and bay area, but I'm thinking of trying that next year. Went deep sea fishing, and it was just OK. I like fishing with artificial bait a lot better...more sport in it. I'm takin' my fly rod also next summer...love to use it.

    We've got some pretty big freshwater stripers here in KY...Lake Cumberland is famous for them.

    Now you start on the truck! Geesh.

    Re: love reading the reviews

    The best catch I ever got in Siesta Key was wearin' a halter at the Daquiri Deck.

    I knew she was eye'in the bait after her third "Diesel" daquiri.
    Daquiri.

    Siesta Key is a fine spot to drop a line. Get out and find some grouper, black drum or snook.

    BTW: Gas in NY is so expensive, I wish I had an Aveo instead of this Hemi.

    A fine establishment, the Daquiri Deck. Me and a couple friends went to siesta village one night. Started there and ended up at the Oyster Bar.

    Caught my first snook this summer...lots of fun! I might just switch my avitar to that one. Can't wait to go back next June.

    Got a 1500, but no hemi...still only get about 11 MPG.
