I sure wish I lived closer you could take me fishen in exchange for some labor
many many Moons ago we had a 75 Johnson with electric choke

we heard today that 'tar balls' are washing up on Destin & Panama City
but the main brut is headed South to the Keys
also heard that the amount of oil released every 4 days is equal to 1 "VALDEZE"
