    In the 80's you could get a beer or in a bar for 90 cents.

    I used to be able to get a flank steak for like 4 dollars.

    Put a couple of traps out this weekend and boiled a couple dozen yesterday. Theyre thick right now.

    When I was a kid calls from a pay phone were a nickel.

    In the 70's I bought an 8 year old car for $250 and put almost 200,000 miles on it.

    Well I'm not. Like I said I'm at camp my brother ran the pots. Barely enough to post pics won't do anything from here. But we certainly can catch crabs and sacs at home in the rivers. Crabs go way up river and the white perch come much further into the brackish stuff than folks realize
