The Carharts are part of the uniform for drying a little girl's hair?

In the south! I had just got through working on a duck blind. I went from GUY work to, "what do you want me to do?" :confused:

08-18-2004, 12:10 AM
Cool pic, dog looks ready to hunt! Dad looks tired!

08-18-2004, 09:23 AM
The dog was not happy :mad: , I took the 16ft. Triton duck boat out for the day to work on the blind and made him stay! When that boat leaves the driveway he thinks he should be in it! Labs are smart and he knows where I'm going.

Doug, you asked why a guy in Louisiana would put his boat up so early in the year? This should help, Kaylee came running out of her room, dressed in this, holding that, and said lets go shot Bambi!? No lie, thats what she said!! :D My little angel :love:

You guys down South use camouflage to deer hunt:eek: ??

Brad; She is really cute, but needs skiis on her feet!

09-09-2004, 08:57 AM
Sure MarkP, standard dress code this time of year.

Leroy, next year is her year for the skies!!

09-09-2004, 10:16 AM
And next you have a driver!

09-09-2004, 10:23 AM
Nice!!!!! I see she has on her official hat. Tell her to air that baby out, or as Kaylee says, " Daddy lets blow the dirt of it"!

09-09-2004, 10:45 AM
Great pic, Leroy. It's obvious she takes her position behind the helm seriously..cool :cool:

09-09-2004, 11:10 AM

The sooner they can drive the boat and pull a skier, the better. My wife started pulling skiers (her dad) at age 7. I'm thinking that might be a bit young, but what do I know.

09-09-2004, 11:25 AM
My son (9) pulled his uncle wakeboarding this weekend. He did a pretty good job for his first time.

09-09-2004, 12:21 PM
Brad, great story.

Leroy good photo, that is so cool.

As for Dad duties I am TIERD!!! He's actually being really good and sleeping fairly well through the night. He wakes up 1-2x's a night. But when you go to bed 11-12 and then get up at 5:30 and add on two wake up's in that, their is only so much coffee can do. Oh and MarkP he had a good poopy diaper yesterday, where were you at!!

09-09-2004, 12:25 PM
Oh and MarkP he had a good poopy diaper yesterday, where were you at!!
just wait till they stop NOT smelling! Once the baby is off of breast milk, then the REAL FUN starts! I tell you NOTHING can prepare you for those diapers :eek3:

09-09-2004, 12:27 PM
I don't have kids yet but still almost dry-heaved at that one Jimmer!!! :eek:

09-09-2004, 12:31 PM
What jimmer said, Brian. "Just wait",:D ..

Dont forget Brian, have fun:uglyhamme .

09-09-2004, 12:33 PM
I don't have kids yet but still almost dry-heaved at that one Jimmer!!! :eek:
I Dry-Heave every time I have to change one of those... I have no idea how my wife does it. It's like she's changing a diaper full of roses or something. But I can smell it from down the hall and it AINT FULL OF ROSES!

09-09-2004, 05:03 PM
The smell has never bothered me, it's just trying to keep his hands and feet out of it long enough to get it cleaned off. The absolute worst ones are the ones where it goes up his back, all around his weenie, and/or down his legs. Those are a 10-wipe job.

09-09-2004, 05:06 PM
If they get that bad, OUTSIDE water hose!!!!!

09-09-2004, 05:12 PM
No, if they are that bad walk away....call the wife for innocent question :rolleyes:

09-09-2004, 05:13 PM
Ewww capt, just give him a clean wipe to play with till your done

09-09-2004, 05:30 PM
Hey, MarkP can do the babysitting at the next Reunion :uglyhamme !!!

09-09-2004, 09:06 PM
I remember those when Brianna was that little. I agree the ones up the back...ewwww! They do stink as well, Peee Ewwww!

09-09-2004, 10:07 PM
No worries Brian, before you know it he will be doing this! :steering:
Enjoy those precious moments while you can!
(Those diapers after breast milk were very BAD!)
Been there, done that.

09-09-2004, 10:08 PM
Nice shot Steve!

09-09-2004, 10:29 PM
Great shot Stevo! How old?

09-09-2004, 11:32 PM
Thanks guys, he is 13 going on about 16. Of course 16 is the legal age for driving a boat but I think they should start to learn before that. I teach him whatever I can now (As long as it is not busy and DNR is not out.)
What do they think, just because they are 16 or older and have a license that they can drive a boat?
Look at how many idiot brother out laws or newbie boat owners are out there driving boats that have no experience and cross your path or get too close. (No clue.)

09-10-2004, 02:33 AM
I try to do the same with mine, 16, 13, and 9. Better to have them learn while we are there. They do take it seriously.

09-10-2004, 07:17 AM
I am 19 now, and started driving the boat with others in it (no skiers) when I was 13ish. Always thought of it as a really cool privledge, so didn't want to mess it up. That is what kept me responsible during my time as the driver. When I turned 16 or 17 I was taking the boat out by myself and pulling skiers. We are on a small private lake, so not to much traffic.

09-10-2004, 08:20 AM

I remember those days, :confused: barely..

09-10-2004, 09:51 AM
I just wish they would enforce the age laws on jet skies! A young kid driving a boat with his parents teaching is alot safer than teenagers doing 65mph. on a damn jetski!! :twocents: Tim chased two down last weekend, ran them down in the old 190!!MC=2, JS=0!

09-10-2004, 10:08 AM
Interesting factoids for boating in MD... Legal age to drive a boat while the boat owner is in the boat: Breathing.

So - as long as YOU feel they can drive, they can while the owner is on the same vessel.

Legal age to drive alone: 16 years.

Personally - I agree with the way they do it. I don't like age limits on many things. I was driving since I was 6 (in very controlled environments).
