Now living in the woods in Florida in an old ranch style house with central AC and heat but not when we first moved in so I bought a fancy attic fan that is variable speed and on a timer so it wood kick off late at ni...

re: Anyone have success catching a snake in a house - FrenchJoe

re: Happy Day: I think I have a King Snake - FrenchJoe
First of all, what part of what state do you live? Can you take another picture of that shed with something for comparrison like a cell phone or shoe (or a ruler). The shed appears to have scales that are not keeled. There appears to be color bands on the shed, so not a speckled king but possibly...

re: When to replace trailer bearings? (Bass pic added) - FrenchJoe
Anytime you replace bearings the races should be replaced. You MIGHT get by without new races and you might not. Replacing races can be a pain. Breaking down on the side of the highway will ruin a day of fishing. Also, it could be dangerous and maybe cause damage to your fishing rig. I always ...

re: Was rice ever a major crop in SE LA? - FrenchJoe
I used to fish on Waggaman Pond in the early 60's. I remember it being said that it was a rice field. Rented pirogues for 50 cents a day and loved to fish the ponds for bream and Green Trout. Can't believe it's a subdivision now....

re: Veterans: How much use does a military pistol actually get in deployment? - FrenchJoe
It all depends on your MOS. As a corpsman in the Nam I was issued a Colt 45 and when they asked me if I wanted a weapon I said Hell yeah, give me an M-16. There's this thing called fire superiority. That 45 is for special occasions. I fired the 16 at the bad guys a few times but never the pistol....
