Have you had one of those days when nothing went right?

One of those days started the night before for me,Saturday night,got my bait sorted went out the back to clean and flavour maggots, clean my pole, checking reels,rods,just making sure my kit was in order for the early start on Sunday. BTW it was a nice clear night.
Anyhow peeps went back into the house to watch a bit of telly,and a couple of cans drink.gif .
Got up next morning, got my sarnies and flask sorted, and i thought WHERES my maggots?, yep i left them outside,open the back door to go and get them, what did i find? 3pints of maggot,1pint of pinkies crawling up the wall,windows, all over the place, it was raining, oh poo i thought started to clear the mess away befor the mrs saw it.
Anyway peeps went fishing, fancied a cuppa and a sarnie,LEFT THEM AT HOME.
Good job my mates were kind to chip in with some bait, tea and sarnies,
Never mind these things happen, but why to me crybaby2.gif
Tight line to all

Hello all

yes ,was fishing my local canal one very windy day about 4
years ago,i was playing a roach on a light waggler rig when
a pike took it.it was a nice pike about 11lbs so i deciced
to try and land it,i had to get up and walk with it as it
took off to my right,as soon as i stood up a nasty gust of wind
caught my brolly and whipped it into the canal,unfortunatley my brolly was attatched to my box via an octoplus arm and so the whole lot box,camera,brolly,bait and lunch took a dip. i took a dip too to
get it all back. the good news was that the camera dryed out and lived again,but i lost the pike.

Zippy.

What have I done to upset you. I sit in my lovely decorated little apartment, situated overlooking picturesque Swansea harbour, happily reading an E-Mail from scouse. I answer his E-Mail then!!!!! A curse has struck me. The b***** computer crashes again. I have spent the best part of tonight reloading the whole thing for the second time in 10 days.

If this happens before we meet for a good chat God knows what is in store for me after we do. LOL

Hopefully now things should be better, but if not you will hear the sound of a computer falling from 35 feet onto a concrete surround.

Geoff,
The rod I bought saturday!
I Broke setting up Sunday!
Then phoned the firm today, they're all off 'til tuesday!
Then found I'd lost my feeder reel last friday!
Then got stuck in a road works at Matlock on the way to fishing LATE, 'cos I'd tried to get my broken rod sorted!
Then realised I'd gone out with no tablets!
So gave up and went home!

BUT! Put the whole thing in perspective, and this is TRUE!
My wife works on a Ward for 'Aged challenged People' (You cant say Geriatric any more)
It is supposed to be a Rehabilitation Ward, but because of the state of our Health Service, they use the skills of our girls, totally wrongly and most of the Patients are so poor, either physically or mentally, Rehabilitation is a JOKE>
There is nowhere else to send them, now the long term beds wards have been shut by New Socialist Labour!!!
However, the joys of these lovely people keep me going!
Today , Elaine had a new admission, a lovely little old man, for Rehabilitating? and sending back into the Community!
Except he has no legs!and is in his 80's!.
But, he still has a mind and when my wife said to him " Frank, How come they took off both your lega?"
He looked at her with disdain!


" Tha knows nothing , Duck!" he replied, " I,ve had 6 legs taken off!"
and he is convinced he has!

What can my silly little problems mean to a man who has lost 6 legs!


There is always someone worse off than yourself and I LIVE with the curse!

By the way, when you see me at Izaaks, you'll recognise me arriving, the Car is the 1 with a hole in the bumper!

Going a bit harder this time Martin LOL,

Keep smiling, it could and for me WILL get worse LOL


Cheers all

Lifes a bitch
then you marry one
then you die

OUCH didn't realise Dee was stood behind me!!
only the first ones a bitch i must add of my own free will , "is that ok dear? i am glad you know i wouldn't call you a bitch".
(well not while you're looking & listening i wouldn't)



Zippy curse eh ?
well i've got the anti dote to that honest i have.
I met Trev at the december fish-in & even helped him pack away at the end & nothing bad has happened to me since then (well if you don't include losing my job on the 21st december, having the dole office investigate my involvement with an on line internet company, blanking on the only day i've been able to go fishing, going through all the hassle with B'lannas birth, oh yeah & being accused of things rolleyes3.gif )

I think thats it

Nope Trogg. Nobody wants to count little "nickle and dime" stuff like that.


Lordy man - you did have a rough time of it didn't you. Glad things are back on the upswing.

There's a song called "What a difference a day makes"
(or if it ain't called that, it's the 1'st line!)

No Newt, don't panic, I aint bought a microphone and gonna start singing LOL

However, as you know, I am trying to achieve a Barbel catch before the close season and all that could go wrong yesterday, did! and I didn't get to fish!

So, putting yesterday behind me, I set off at 6.00 am for The R.Dove and my elusive Barbel, although the weather forecast was not so good.

Arriving at 7.30, I made my way to the swim and Guess What! There on the bank for everyone to see (Well it was dark when I left on Friday night) was my missing reel!

I Started fishing at about 8.15 and then the mobile rang!
It was the firm who supplied my Rod, with an address for a Free , No Questions asked , Replacement Rod!!!


And, then the weather picked up, the day got really warm and for the 1st time this year, I felt really comfortable on the Bankside!

Finally, Guess What became of my Quest for a Barbel? (Well really, after all the good things that had happened since my poor day yesterday, You know the answer don't you???!!!!!















Well , Your Bloody Wrong!
I fished 2 rods, from 8.30 to 6.00 pm and never got 1 solitary BITE!!! DOH

Like the other song says though '2 outta 3 aint bad'

Still Smiling.
Still with Curse!
