Debbie--please, please keep those stories coming!  I'm still laughing about the sock--I wonder how much it would get on eBay?  Speaking of which, did Phil's bike ever sell? 

Did anyone watch last night?  I've been really busy so I might not get to watch until tomorrow night.  I kind of like to know what to expect.

Tammy--summer finally got to the West Coast!  It was 68 on Monday, 87 yesterday and supposed to be 95 today and 97 tomorrow!  No rain in sight...  The hardest thing about Oregon summer is there is no gradual warming so you can get used to the heat.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Oh, thank you so much, Debbie!  I'm going to be giggling all day about that dirty sock!  What year was that?  I miss Spokane--my youngest spent her freshman year at Gonzaga, and we enjoyed the area immensely.  There was a great little Italian restaurant downtown...

How did you first meet Phil?

ok funny stories...when i first went over to see phils place in lake stevens i was sooo excited to see his dad and some of old friends that i haven't seen in years. As we were catching up and recalling what a dog phil could be (friends and i ganging up on phil) a faint knock on the door..Phil got up and answered it and it was one of his neighbors with such a sweet little voice oh Mr. Harris my little granddaughter is here visiting and she would absolutely love to meet you(he was at this point kinda giddy that people was even noticing him) he said oh sure send her over just then the most beautiful long blonde hair boobs to die for hanging out of her shirt (heh thats how i remember it and it is my story) 20 something coming bouncing yes bouncing up to the door capt. phil capt. phil she skreeched. Phil lit up like a friggin christmas tree wide eyed then remembering he had guests(which the guys were drooling as well) turned so red that i even had to chuckle. Her request from him was an autograph so he said do you have something for me to sign and she coyly said what would you like to sign(should of slapped her silly) at this point we all just busted up, i threw my hands up and said are you f&*king kidding me and said MY POINT.. He then turned to me and said sweety could you find some paper or something well he had a pair of dirty sox on the floor so i grabbed one and said here sign this! He did.. she loved it..and the rest is history...

Yes I type my thoughts.. LOL think sometimes to much.  I went to dinner with a friend tonight, it was nice, I needed that.  But I'm home alone again LOL.. Came in turned the TV on and guess what was on, DC course it sucked in in again, and here I sit watching it again.  Freddie's words still get to me, and makes me think.  My husband had his stroke the day after Thanksgiven, he was fine got up has breakfast, some buddies come up, he stood out there about an hour or so talking.  He came in and went to sit down hit the floor, he started telling me he could not see, and at first I thought he was joking so I kept on loading the dishwasher.  He went to get up hit the floor and grabbed his chest, telling he he could not see and his chest hurt.. So that is when I called 911.  Once they got here, it was clear it was a stroke and it hit his vision part of the brain.  He was also having a heart attack.. Thank God EMS stopped it.  But for many days he was blind, and it slowly started to return.  It took many months for it to come back, and he had to get new glasses.  All because he did not take his Blood Pressure meds, he was "to busy' to get them filled that Wed and was going to that day.. Well that is what happened.. 
I really dont see Mike taking over, I dont know. I really dont see John and Andy stopping anytime soon.  But you never know.  As for Jake A, oh you are right, but I do not look for him at anytime to take over the NW..
I dont know I have all of the show's on disk and the After the Catch and John was always talking, laughing but the last few he really just has sit there.   I really did not watch the ATC, I have it taped and will watch it. 
 But any hoot everyone have a great 4th, be safe!

Tammy, I love the whole "type what I'm thinking" thing--that's the way I am, too.  It's more like a real conversation.  I watched both the episode & ATC last night, and I was amazed that my husband came down from his office to watch with me.  At one point he even referred to it as "his" show not "my" show.  He's decided he really likes Andy.  I don't know what type of stroke your husband had, Tammy, but comparing Phil to my mom is like night and day.  Other than the shaved head, he looked pretty good to me--sitting up, talking, etc.  My mom was basically unresponsive and her body kept doing weird things--she always had one arm up in the air--they would work on it in physical therapy, but by dinner time it would be back up in the air.  They finally just clasped her hand around a grab bar to provide some support. 

I, too, thought Freddie said all the right things to Josh.  I am so impressed with that kid!  Go Josh!

I thought Sig throwing his cigarettes and then turning out the light was perfect.  I hope he (and the rest of them) never pick up another cigarette in their lives.

I was impressed once again with how Phil always seems to has something nice to say about people (his comment about Keith in ATC).  I've never really bought in to the military mind-set that you have to tear someone down and then build them up again. That just sounds like a personal power trip to me.  I think Jake Anderson appreciated the difference in approach, too.  BTW, talking about boat personalities, if Mike Fourtner eventually takes over Time Bandit and Jake Anderson eventually takes over the Northwestern, don't you think they are the perfect choices personality-wise?  Jake has to have grown up with a lot of women around--no reflection on his manliness--but it is so sweet when his feelings get hurt and he feels unappreciated and he wants to talk things through.  Definitely a strong female influence somewhere in his background.

I thought John was a little more talkative this time around, but I noticed that people seem to talk over him a lot.  I wonder if in person he's quieter than they sometimes show him to be on DC?

I loved the bit about the shrimp fisherman tying his mom to a tree during Katrina.  It must have been terrifying--and then seeing his wife washed away like that.  If we ever have a natural disaster our here on that scale I hope I have a fisherman nearby to take care of me!

And re good people having bad things happen:  In the end you just have to trust God.  Part of the Lutheran funeral service includes the words "from the evil to come are they taken away."  Maybe the good people are going to be spared something far worse.  The other thing that helps me is that God gives you burdens proportionate to your strength and never more than you can handle with His help.  My prayers go out to you and your friends.  I hope they recover both their physical health and faith in people.  We can't let the bad guys win!  Of course, locking them up and throwing away the key can't hurt.

I'm off until next Tuesday so everyone have a wonderful 4th of July weekend.  Tammy--try thinking of the lightning as fireworks.  (I love big storms--they bring out the Wild Child in me!)  Debbie--I'm still hoping you'll come up with a great story to share.  Bless you all!

What is your location? Yes I'm still here!

Hey me again!  Yes, I'm still bored as the blind man.. Today has dragged on and on and it is only 4:30.  BLAH   Yes that is what I did today.. Before the rain, yes it is raining again, which is fine, we need it.  I have cleaned, clothes are done, still need to vacuum but I just dont have the energy to push the vacuum.  
Kim PMS was last week and yet I feel like crap this week, last week I was full of energy and going going going, maybe it is the rain, maybe it is Danny being gone, maybe it is all in my head.. Who know?  Hang in there Kim, a dear family friend Mrs Betty 71 years old, was packing her office up Sunday evening, she was set to retire yesterday, well some man came in and beat her, she has brain damage, hands are crushed, arm broke, facial bones broke and he cut her fingers off.  She some how called 911 and they air lifted her out.  She is in ICU and we are praying for her and that they will find the man .. Few weeks ago same town, another friend who is I'm sure in his late 60's or early 70', was robbed and beat.  He to was in ICU and they beat him, broke his pelvis, and hip and messed him up.. What the hell is wrong with people.. 
What gets me is, you have mean ass people like that, and crack heads that have kids and beat them or neglect them and those are the ones that will freakin life until they are 102, but good people that do the right thing work hard, take care of their family, they are the ones who get sick or end up hurt from those other damn hateful people.. Man it makes me so mad.. I say bring back public hanging and show them what will happen to them.  
Gayle I understand what you are saying about it being  disturbing , and that stuck in your mind, it is hard to see anyone so strong, and so wonderful, hurt and sick.  But I have hear people say that Discovery should not show it, and I pray they will remember that what happened really happen, it is not acting or a script.  So far they have, and I think Phil would approve, I guess he would I dont know, but from what Josh said he had talked to them long ago, and told them no matter what, he wanted them to keep filming.  Maybe he was trying to show us all something, I dont know. I blows my mind that I still feel he knew something and wanted to protect was all.  Maybe he thought that in the long run,  people would heed to what he said about smoking, and other will see how truly hard it is for smokers to quit.  Lord I dont know what I'm going on about.. I'm just typing what I think. You girls just over look me.. My son watched with me last night, which shocked me a little, he said he was not going to watch this season at all, but I think last week and this week shook him up, being we almost lost Danny in Nov. He told me last night that it was really hard to watch Jake and Josh, cause he knows how they felt when that happen to his Daddy.  He said it makes you think, hard how much people mean to you..  Which is something my son would never say, I was in total shock.. Maybe that was Phil's message to us all..

Oh, Gayle, that's what I was afraid would happen.  I'm so sorry you had to see that part.  It's such a complete shock even if you're prepared for it.  I don't know how Discovery will handle the rest of it, but when my mom died I found it helped me to see her afterward.  Her head was still shaved and she still looked wrong, but she looked peaceful and relaxed which was an improvement from how she looked right after the stroke.  You might consider watching it all the way through now just for that resolution--you've already seen the worst and you need to get it out of your mind or at least put in in context so you can remember Phil the way you want to remember him.

Thanks for your thoughts about Tyler.  There was an article in the paper yesterday about the Supreme Court ruling changing gun control laws.  I understand people have a constitutional right to own guns, but I wish more people would accept the corresponding responsibility to use them wisely.  If it's OK to keep guns away from convicted felons, little kids and people with mental disabilities it should be OK to keep them away from people who behave irresponsibly.

Do you have any funny stories to share?  I just got another low blow--a good friend is getting divorced and moving to Texas!  If it ain't one thing it's bound to be something else.

Cheers!

OMG, T...only YOU!!!!  Poor girl! I watched the last 10 minutes of last nights show...swore I wouldnt...wish I hadnt. Seeing Phil in that hospital room, with his head shaved made me almost physically ill. I found it really disturbing and Im sure I will not watch again. Right now its the last image seared into my mind and that really pisses me off. I knew I should have left well enough alone It will only get worse from here.
Anyway...sorry for your loss, Kim. That is really tragic. I hate guns.
Hope everyone is doing ok. Im still talking with the dental office to see if it will work out for both of us. If I choose to go back to work, it will have to be worth it, of course. Nothing worse than having to go to a job you hate But of course, working with Angela would be awesome

Hi All!

I will watch tonight--PMSing right now so I have a feeling it will be rough--I'm feeling emotional.  When my girls were little I did daycare for 12 years so I could be home with them.  We live in a small, self-contained little neighborhood with its own grade school so I got a lot of the neighborhood kids.  The ones I wasn't getting paid for came over any way because our house was the the place to be.  Last Saturday I went to the memorial for one of "my" boys.  He was accidentally shot & killed June 10th by a drunk friend who thought it would be fun to play with a loaded handgun.  Tyler was 26.  He and his wife would have celebrated their first anniversary on June 23rd.  I didn't think I would cry, so I wasn't prepared.  I ended up using my husband's shirt since there weren't any kleenexes (is that a word?) or napkins handy.  Luckily it was a plaid shirt so I don't think anyone could tell.  lol.  Bummer story but it helps to talk about it. 

Found Tammy on Facebook but have to wait until my kids are free this weekend so they can show me what to do next!

Gayle, did you get the job at the dentists's office?

Debbie, I think I could use a funny Phil story about now--didn't you say you would tell me how it REALLY was?

I have a deadline to meet here at work since it's a short week so gotta go.  Have a great day everyone!

What is your location? I wanted rain and I got it SC

Comments:
Good Morning Girls!  Well I guess I cried enough about the weather and the heat and no rain, we have a cold front coming and Sun- last night we have had storms every day. These are pretty bad ones and they last for hours.  My yard is green again, but man the lighting I could do with out.  It is going to be a high today of 83 woohoo, alot better than those 110 days.  
Well my husband and youngest son are in Daytona, at the race track they are with the Danny Efland NASCAR Nationwide Team 07, working.  My oldest had a chance to go, ( trip 100% paid) hotel, pit passes, got shirts to wear, food ( breakfast is on them, lunch is catered in from the sponsor and dinner is paid for , plus they give everyone $200.00 cash for food or to spend.  but no he can not get his head out of his girlfriends butt, I asked why pass on a great chance like that, and he give no answer but I guess he thinks she is going to go poof and be gone.. ( I wish) I like her she is very nice, but I try to explain to him, he does not need to be with her every moment of the day, he needs to live his life.. One day he will wake up and say damn my friends did this and that my brother did this and that, where was I..Been there done that got a shirt, hat and card to prove it.. 
My anniversary is the 9th, even thought unless he is seriously screwing with me, which I dont think he is, my husband has no clue, he thought it was this Sat.  And not sure what we will do, if anything.  He said we will go to the beach when he gets back,, ohhh goodie another trip to Myrtle Beach, BLAH  that is ok I will pass.  That place sucks.. Think I rather sit home and watch TV.  Been watching Burn Notice on USA pretty good show.  OH Lord I'm bored to death can you all tell, I'm use to going going going and this summer, there is no summer school to teach no classes to take, no house full of kids, so yes I'm as bored as a blind man at a strip club.
I know what " T " means about the flood in the house.  I have a sky light, in my bathroom over my tub, that for some reason my husband had to have put in there.  but any hoot. All this rain and guess what is now leaking.. that is right that damn heat box.  He told me to climb up there and see what was going oh.. YEAH right MISTER.. I will go buy a damn blue tarp and get DJ ( my love struck son) to put it up.. I will look like some of these other hicks that have those there blue tarps on their roof, since HUGO back in 89.. But one thing is least it is over my tub.  
Well I did watch last night, and many things hit home.  Freddie man did he make your tears just flow?  He was oh so right.  Everything from Johnathan stopping what he was doing and going to the boys, to Keith's prayer, and Sig throwing his cigs. It all made you really think.
I know people talk about "reality" shows but that was all very much REAL, and what really pisses me off is those same people who have never watched the show, or said it was stupid to watch a bunch of guys pull up crab week after week, are the same damn ones that blew the rating off the charts this season.  And WHY, to see if the show is lying to see the kids and other boats hurt.  oh it pisses me off.  Unlike that Big People little world show, DC is not scripted at all.  Did any of you see that last show? What a freakin joke.  The man falls on the floor and they all stand around looking at him kicking at him with their foot saying hey you ok, hey get up..Guess they are looking for the big ratings.  But all those un watchers that are now watching to see the hurt screw you.  The after the catch show, man what is going on with Johnathan? He is never ever this quiet.  

Any hoot. going to go make some coffee.. Kim found me on Facebook, and I did join the new web site.   think my name on there is tammusc.. 
Have a great hump day.. love and hugs to you all

Hello ladies,

My brain is like mush...I read everyone's post on this page and for some reason the only thing I retained was Deb's referring to Gayle as Marie Osmond.  Sorry...No!!!  Gayle is much prettier and really doesn't resemble a pod person to me.

Well once again my AC is broken.  And I have a slightly flooded downstairs.  No joke...I went down there to clean up the damage and watched a frog hop on by my couch.  So between the 90+ temp inside and the swamp downstairs I have managed to bring the Everglades to the West Coast.  Yep...good times.

Took a well earned, well deserved four day weekend...and I need at least 4 more...months. 

Furkids are fine...although I think they are planning a mutiny and stealing the car to escape to Alaska.  I have 3 cats now in addition to 6 dogs.  All from feral litters.  Bottle fed the little buggers myself.  All is harmonious.  Thought having cat chasers in my pack was going to be an issue...seems they are the biggest mushes with the felines.  Go figure.

Well my leak will be fixed tomorrow and the AC repairman will be in Saturday. Oh and my upstairs toilet broke so you can all have a chuckle imagining me replacing the flow valve...Let's see if I can turn the upstairs into a swamp as well.  Hey, maybe the staircase can be a water feature.  Yep...good times. 

Have a lovely evening, morning, afternoon, week, weekend, holiday, etc.

Oh and HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TO YOU GAYLE...WHAT IS THAT, NOW...22, 23?

OK Tammy.  I clicked on the link which took me to Facebook but not to you.  Everyone is still asleep around here, so I don't know what to try next.  Can you find me?  I'll keep trying but it's going to be a busy weekend and I don't know when I'll get another chance to get back on the computer.  You can always get me during the week at carterkz@ah.org.

Just had to take a quick minute this morning to tell you all the winemaker's dinner was fantastic fun.  Met some old friends, made some new ones and came home with a painting of Fort Rock, OR for my husband's office.  The trouble with these charity events is combining wine, peer pressure & auctions.  The house remodeling may never get done, but d*** we have some beautiful art work!  And it's so much fun meeting the artists and winemakers in person.  Met a guy who was in the Merchant Marine for 20 years and now fishes in AK for fun as often as he can.  He gave me the name of a guy here in town who teaches fly fishing.  Might have to check that out.  Maybe that's something I wouldn't need too much coordination to learn.  And guess what?  He loves Deadliest Catch!

Tammy, congrats on the weight loss.  It is so cool you're doing it now instead of waiting until you're my age and have to do it for medical reasons.  It comes off a lot quicker when you're younger.  I'm down about three lbs this week, but I love to eat and I love to cook so it's going to be a long, long road for me.  The winemaker's dinner was not what the doctor ordered, but you only live once!  The hardest part is that I'm 5'7" and no one thinks I need to lose weight but the doctor because it doesn't really show in clothes. 

Good luck to your hubby's team.  I think I heard talk a while back they might make Portland a regular stop.  I know they have races here in June connected to the Rose Festival.  If they do come this way, let me know and we'll get together.

To everyone else, have a great weekend.  Unfortunately for me I have a memorial service to go to this afternoon, but that's life I guess.  Tomorrow the sun will be shining again.

What is your location? Still hot here SC only 101 today

Comments:
Oh Lord girls it is so hot here today.. I went and paid two bills and said the heck with it, and came home.  My poor A/C is begging me to shoot it, and I'm about to throw food out the freezer and jump in LOL.. Anyone want to move north with me?   Kim if you click on that link from my other post it should take you right to me and you can add me.  (should  LOL)
Yeah I remember that show, when Scott said that to them, I'm sure it hurt Johnathan and Andy too, and really made Johnathan think. And now that it is happening to Scotty, with his divorce yes I'm sure Johnathan is worried.  Do you really think him and Andy will retire?  I don't know, I think they would so stir crazy and would spend all of their time wondering and worrying what is going on out there.  it would drive them nuts. I was shocked that Johnathan did leave, did not see that coming at all.  But like I said with everything that happens after he did, I really think it will make ALL of them step back and take a good look at their lives and take note to what has to change.  All we can do is wait and see.  
Keith danced week before last on After the Catch.          I'm glad him and Johnathan are OK now, damn this season has blown my mind.  Damn girl I would not care how I looked on a bike I would just say ok people I'm with Johnathan take me damn picture take 1000's of them.. LMAO, I use to cheer in high school and college and now I would look like a dork doing them, I can not do the splits any longer and if I could they would have to call 911 to get me.. My husband said 922 cause 911 dont have enough equipment to get me up. I'm not big, I'm 5'1 and did pack on some weight got up to 160, but have lost 27 pounds in 3 weeks so I'm trying to get back down.  It is my own fault I just love to eat and have never ever had to watch what I eat.  I do now at the nice age of 40.. 
Well everyone is gone around here, it is quiet woohoo.. My youngest and hubby will be back Sat evening, then heading out with the Nascar Nationwide Team, Monday morning for Daytona.. I chose to stay home, damn a race track I will watch it on TV.  To hot for all that mess.  If you guys watch next Friday Night the 2nd look for car 07. Danny Efland from Irom SC.. that is the team.. 
Watching some of the world cup, mmmm who knew that stuff was so ruff..Man they play hard.  Everyone have a wonderful weekend.  Kim send me some cool weather.. Snow would be good.  LMAO

Hey Tammy!  I wish I could send you the clouds we have today.  It might help cool things down for you--110 is WAY too hot especially with the humidity you get back East.  I am on Facebook, but I'm a complete newbie--my daughter had to set it up for me.  I don't even know how to tell you how to find me.  I usually keep in touch with people by regular old email while I sit here at work waiting for the computer to do its thing or when I'm on hold on the phone.  It's easy to just send a quick message or even carry on whole conversations.  I work for a wonderful organization--we get flex time, and as long as the work gets done on time they don't look over your shoulder & micro-manage.

I've been wondering if Johnathan (I have to call him that because my son-in-law's name is John and I get senior moments where I get names confused) has been bummed about Scott.  The look on his face a couple of years ago when Scott told him and Andy he didn't want to end up like them and then left the boat was like Johnathan had been stabbed in the back.  Now Scott says he wants to stay with it, but it seems to be by default, not because he feels any real love or dedication or ambition.  Contrast Scott's attitude with Jake Anderson's attitude, for example.  And Scott saying he didn't want his kids to grow up hating him for being gone--Ouch!  Was he saying he grew up hating Johnathan?  So I'm wondering if that's what's been on Johnathan's mind and taken the fun out of it for him--kind of second-guessing himself & his life choices and seeing himself through Scott's eyes and not being happy with it.  I also remember one scene where someone asked Johnathan if he would feel comfortable working on deck with Scott in the wheelhouse--he just kind of shuffled his feet and looked away--but then he insists now it's Scott's birthright.  My vote is for Mike at least right now.  It could be an interesting season next year if they focus on the changing of the guard.

Did you really mean to say KEITH is a good dancer?  When has he danced?  My style of dancing is more like Johnathan's crab dance--LOL.  Seriously, I sat through years and years of dance classes and recitals with the girls and still have two left feet.  I am a total klutz and look like a dork trying to do anything that requires the least bit of physical coordination.  I entered the raffle to win a ride with Johnathan at the Fisherman's Festival in Astoria this fall, but if I win I'll give the ticket to my friend who's giving me tickets to a winemaker's dinner tonight.  Me on a motorcycle would NOT be a pretty sight!

I'm in a really good mood today.  Last night I went with my youngest daugher to try on her wedding dress for the second time (and show big sister).  We picked out the bridesmaid dresses, too.  It makes me happy to see my girls happy.  Tonight my husband and I are going to a enjoy our free fancy dinner and date night.  So today life is good for me, and I hope for you too, Tammy, and everyone else here.  Have a great weekend!

Hello girls from HOT AND SUNNY AND 110 here today in the shade SC.. I'm praying for ! think I will get it?  
Kim I had to laugh, when Phil said about the teeth he paid for, it just seemed like even though the situation was very serious, he still give us his wonderful humor.  I understand what he is talking about with not being around more, but I hope he knew that he did what he had to do, to provide for the boys. I'm pretty sure they understand how hard it was in him, each time he left and why he did it.  Once they both become parents they to will see they it does not matter if you are gone for months at a time or just for 8 hours a day, you always have that want to be home with your kids.  I did notice something, at the start of the season, and one of the girls on here noticed too Phil looked tired, but if you look at him this week, he looked great but he looked like something was truly bothering him, but he had that spark back and that smile.  I still feel he knew, and yet he chose not to revile it, to protect the boys, the crew and his family and even us his fans.  To me that is just the way he seemed to be, he carried the weight of the world on him, and would do anything to protect those boys.  
Yes Discovery did handle thing's well,  I hope they will continue too.  I just feel for Jake he, looked so lost and you just wish you would had been there to hug him.  
Kim, not sure what is going on with Johnathan, last season he was kinda quiet too. And this season he seemed to be a million miles away, that crazy laugh and jokes seemed to be the last thing on his mind.  I hope that he does come back, and get's back to his old self.    I dont think Egar will be back either, I think after this season many of them will step back and take a good hard look of their live, and put many things into place.  Keith, I really think will, and I pray the boys will quit smoking, and that Egar gets better, and John and Andy make the right choice.  
Poor Jake Anderson, your heart hurts for him, I pray he will get some peace and answers.  
My prospective of the Time Bandit and Northwestern with the boy and girl LOL that was quite funny.. The TB boys are wild and loud and drink and party and play pranks and have fun.. NW  they are clam and not so loud, and might pull a prank every now and then.  Hell I dont know just a thought ..  But I think they really need to do a show of DC and the Boys of the Bering Sea's wildest pranks.. Boy are there some, and you see there are many we have not seen.  That with Matt and the skull OMG I almost pee'd my pants laughing and I needed that.   Along with Sig dancing..  I have to say Keith is a hell of a dancer..  
Well I guess I put my 2 cent in, hope it was ok.. I'm just going on and on LOL.  
Kim are you on face book?  If so look me up 

Love you all

Greetings Ladies!  Two sunny days here in a row for the first time this year!  Woo Hoo!!!

I warned you all I'd need to talk about the show after I watched it, so here goes.  I watched both the regular episode & After the Catch back-to-back.

Random Thoughts:
It was a very DARK episode.  Even when he was really angry with Jake, Phil got off a good one liner about knocking out the teeth he paid for.
Keith's daughter (how old?) was great!
Addictive personalities--uh, been there, done that, still doing it, 'nuf said.
Phil & the boys looking at the family pictures got to me--so did Phil saying he felt guilty for not being around more when they were growing up.  I would have told him 3 things I've learned the hard way: (1) Life & kids don't come with instructions.  You do the best you can at the time, and hope like heck it turns out all right in the end.  Every parent is in the same boat, not just parents whose jobs require them to be away from home a lot.  (2) Memorize the Serenity Prayer & live it every day, especially when things go wrong.  Feeling guilty about the past just makes you feel bad so you can't make the most of the day you actually are living.  The flip side of that is the Prayer of St Francis--trust that God (or whatever you believe in) has a plan; you don't need to understand it; you just have to allow Him to work through you.  (3) There comes a point in time when kids have to make their own choices, and as a parent you have to step back and let them fail so they can learn and grow.  There also are times when they, for whatever reason, may do something so wrong that you wonder what you did wrong.  STOP!  Go back to point (1) and move on.  Love them, pray for them, be there to support them emotionally, but don't ever make yourself responsible for the choices they've made as adults.  Sorry--you can probably tell that's something close to my heart.

What is going on with Johnathan?  He seems completely deflated.  And so quiet.  When he left in the middle of the season was he running away from something or running toward something?  If he's depressed he should be on meds and in therapy--mental health is another big thing with me--everyone deserves to be happy and if your brain chemistry gets in the way, there's a lot that can be done to fix it.  He certainly has enough on his plate--getting older, life & job changes, concern about Scott, losing a close friend.  I hope by the time he comes to Portland next month, the spark is back.  I miss the old Johnathan.

I think the stroke scenes were handled appropriately--they told the story without sensationalizing anything.  I was very worried Phil's eyes would be open--that you could see either panic or resignation or maybe even personality loss in them (I see images of my mom).  I was glad, too, they didnt show the facial droop.  People aren't supposed to look like that--it looks WRONG.

My husband said he was glad it happened in port where Phil could get medical attention quickly and not at sea.  A long delay would have been incredibly hard on the crew and possibly fatal for Phil.

Josh is amazing!  This is the kid Phil said would never run the boat; but guess who stepped up, kept his head in a crisis, was calm and comforting, thought ahead about the needs of the boat and crew?  I read an article once that said watching DC should be required for all business majors in college because it spotlighted leadership & management skills.  Josh has what it takes.  Kudos, kid.

It doesn't sound like Edgar will be back. I think he's very aware the middle school years are crucial years for a father to be with his sons--that time when they are looking for role models to show them what men and fathers do and are.  And if they don't find good ones, they latch on to whatever is handy.  Health & age aside, I think Edgar should put family first.  He didn't come right out and say it, but looking at Jake Harris he can see what happens if boys don't get that kind of fathering when they need it.

The difference between Jake Harris and Jake Anderson was striking, too.  One has it all together & will make a wonderful captain some day.  The other still is a work in progress.  God forgive me for saying it, but he reminds me a lot of my husband.  I love the guy dearly (32 years and counting), but he falls apart in a crisis, is a functioning alcoholic with no desire to change, and he would be totally lost without me or someone else to take care of him.  I hope & pray Jake is young enough and strong enough to turn things around.  Out on a boat year round with no access to drugs or booze or bad influences may be the safest place for him to be for the next few years.  I hope any girl he gets seriously involved with realizes what kind of life she could end up leading.  It's not the 50-50 relationship marriage should be. 

Have they found out anything more about Jake Anderson's father?  I get the feeling there is more background than the show got into, but it's still a very weird situation.  I can't imagine anything worse than not knowing.  I'm guessing his wrist laceration healed OK?

Are Johnathan & Sig going to get together with Ted Nugent now and go hunting with bows and arrows?  Those fish looked sooooo good!  I love fish.  I hope my last meal is fresh salmon or tuna with Dungeness on the side.

Thought it was interesting that Mike Rowe said Time Bandit had a male personality and Northwestern had a female personality.  Would you agree?  Why?

I couldn't decide whether Sig had had too much to drink or just shouldn't dance.  I laughed until I cried.  It was a good way to end the show on a lighter note. 

This has been really long, I know, but I am so grateful to have found others who care enough to listen.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  Please share your thoughts, too.  And everyone have a wonderful day!

Oh, Tammy, I teared up reading your post.  Your husband is a lucky guy and one in a million to come home for you like that!  My husband is watching with me, too, even though he really doesn't care about show.  (Has high BP, too, but takes his meds pretty faithfully as long as I keep the prescriptions filled--lol--finally got him to go on a heart-healthy diet with me, too.  I have 6 months to get my cholesterol under control or go on statins.  Getting older sucks!)

I got to thinking some more about your previous post, and I wondered if anyone else thought it was odd when Phil gave specific directions on how he successfully fished the Rock Pile?  It was kind of like giving away one of his favorite possessions.  He had to know it was going to be on the show for everyone to see and not be his secret any more. 

I think Josh will be OK because he is so verbal--he can talk everything out--but I worry about Jake keeping everything inside.  I also wonder how soon after Jake admitted his addiction that Phil had his stroke.  It would be awful if Jake blamed himself, but I can see how he might.  I really hope everyone who isn't taking care of themselves sees what happened to Phil as a wake-up call.  The best tribute of all would be for the boys, and all his friends, and all the fans of the show to quit or cut back on their smoking and start trying to be healthier.  I wish he had lived long enough to take his future grandchildren fishing!

(PS - The sun is finally shining here in Oregon!)

People amaze me,  I have been married for 18 years, and last night my husband truly shocked me.  He works for a Nascar team, he has been gone since last week and is working to get cars ready for Daytona.  Well he called yesterday and asked me what I was doing, I told him nothing much, he asked what I had planned for last night I told him it was DC night and it was going to be a hard one to watch.  Well let me go back to Nov last year, my husband at the age of 45 had a stroke, it hit his eye site and while I was on the phone with 911, his arm went numb and chest was hurting, once EMS got here it was having a heart attack, they got the meds in him and stopped it.  Once at the hospital which he was in ICU for 5 days in the hospital 7. He was totally blind for days and we were not sure if it was permint or not. He does not nor never have smoke, or drink or any drugs. But him being slack he did not go get his meds for his high blood pressure, he took his last pills that Tuesday night and thought he would be OK until Friday being Thanksgiving was that Thurs, well he wasn't.  His BP was 280/180 and he almost died.  His sight  is back and he still has virtgo (sp) at times and I make damn sure his meds are filled.  So I guess he knows what it is like with a stroke and what could happen.  
Anyway, I went next door to have coffee with my neighbor, at around 8 my cell rung it was a call from my home, I was like WHT cause no one was home.  It was my husband, he drove for hours to come home to be with me to watch DC, at first I was thinking OK what does he want, but he told me he just wanted to come home and watch it with me so I would not be alone.  I guess he his not such a bad guy after all.  I know it got to him too, he told me "that was me, and I did it to myself cause I was stupid",  I told him no, he just was not thinking it would go up that high that fast and that his condition was not thought to be that bad.  But I'm grateful that he thought about me enough to drive for hours to come home and be with me. 
If any of you or your family have high BP, remind them daily to take their meds, never ever skip them. I almost lost him and now have over 5 hundred thousand $$ worth of bills, cause he did not go get 65.00 worth of meds.  
Thank you all for listening to me on that..
Anyway, hope all of you are doing good after last night, I think next to 9-11 that was the hardest thing I have ever watched.  I still wonder if the DR's told him, and he chose to live life as he always did and be with the boys and crew.  I think I would do the same thing, if it was me.  I only know them from the TV but I have to say wow to Josh, he was amazing.  And Jake you just wanted to hug him.  I'm just wondering if there will be a DC next year, with everything this year, who knows.  Anyway, you all have a wonderful week.

Hi Ladies,
Been out of the loop for awhile. Daughter's wedding a few weeks ago. (It was Great!), my office burned down (truly, I can't make this stuff up). I could write a book.
 
Welcome KIM. Yes this is a great site, no nonsense, just a great group of very caring people.
 
MaryKathleen! How's the horsie??? Get those pics up here!  I work with rescue horses. Love those critters!

Tammy - It crossed my mind, too, that maybe the doctors warned him not to go back out fishing.  I'm not a nurse or doctor, but I've been in health care for quite a few years--If you start throwing clots and get put on coumadin it's for the rest of your life, not a short-term thing.  And even then there are no guarantees you won't throw a clot in the wrong place at the wrong time, or bleed out because your coumadin levels have been thrown off by something you ate or an illness or a medication interaction.  Maybe changing his life around completely was too much for him, and he just quietly made the choice to keep going as long as he could without changing.  He certainly didn't quit smoking or relax or switch to a vegan diet.  If I had to give up everything I loved just to live a little longer (with no guarantee that I would live longer), I don't know if the trade off would be worth it.  Maybe he decided it was better "to burn out than to rust." (credit Neil Young)  I can respect that.

I also understand friends and co-workers thinking you are crazy for getting fascinated by someone you've never met.  I feel the same way.  It's not a "crush" for me.  I've never been physically attracted to blue-eyed blonds.  And I don't follow celebrities (unless I'm reading People in the dentist's office).  I just enjoy meeting and getting to know people.  (The world is full of friends you haven't met yet!)  I think Phil's personality is what comes through on the show--it must have been amazing in person--and he's someone I wish I had had a chance to know.  That's not possible, but through the show and through the women on this site I do have an opportunity to learn more about him.  I'm old enough I don't really care what other people think about my "obsession."  Hope you feel better now that you've vented.

Gayle - I know you were concerned about how it was going to be handled--I will let you all know what I think on Thursday.  If you don't want read my post, that's OK, but I know I will need to talk about it.  Can you tell me what upset Phil about the coverage of the pulmonary embolism?  Was he embarrassed about how he looked, or did he feel that the whole medical situation was private?  If I knew what bothered him, I could better judge how it has been handled.

And what's the deal with the coffee?

Tammy- the whole coffee debacle is really sad. The boys hired Russ as their agent, as did Phil. From what I gather, Marsha didnt hold up whatever end of her responsibility, so she was let go. Why she continues to try and sell Phils product, using his likeness is baffling. Common sense would tell you thats illegal. Im sure Marsha has her reasons, but when the boys tell her to STOP, she needs to STOP. Maybe they do owe her money, but the way she went about getting it makes everyone question her mental stability.
Josh and Jake and Russ just need to clean house now. Get rid of all the people that are just riding their coat-tails for attention, and there are quite a few of those, sadly. I found it funny that all those people are friends, but none of them jumped to Marsha's defense yesterday!! Cant let Josh see they are friends with her!!
I wont watch the show tonight either. Why start now?? We all know how it ends, and I certainly dont want to watch it happen.

Hey girls, hope everyone is doing well.  I'm still in debate on tonight, I did see the previews on youtube and I think that was enough for me. I will DVR it but we will see.  I just need to vent for a minute, one about what is going on with the coffee, I really dont know what to say or think, are people that money hungry and that hateful.  I just hope that, the boys get things worked out and if she is doing what she has been accused of, well she will be held for it.  I really dont think Josh is doing what she claims, if the boys have all this damn money that she claims then why are they working as we speak? 

 Two during lunch today a few of us got to talking about tonight and to one of my so called friends so it has turned out she is a damn nut case that really needs some mental help, she says we are all nuts to feel this way about someone we did not even know, and why do we let it affect us like this.. NOW let it be known that this is the same damn woman GROWN woman that cried for days when Michael Jackson died, she called in sick for 3 days, and had to go to the DR for pills.  She cleans out her savings to fly to LA to go to his ranch and cry and to go hang out with everyone else to cry.  This is the same woman that has posters of him hanging in her bed room.  But I'm nuts huh.. So once I told her ass off and let her know that, from what I was told with Phil what you seen is what you got, there was no acting, no pretending and no sugar coating it, that was him.  Unlike MJ who was so wacked out he did not know what or who he was.  I just went off on her, and do not feel bad that I did..
Another thing that was talked about, and it makes me wonder, after the last few shows Phil has talked about his health and that he was not 100% and that he was not going to be around much longer, OK with that and what happed do you girls think there is any chance that he knew, that he was told that by a Dr and he just went fishing and spending time with the boys and if and when it happen it did?  Makes me wonder if he did that to spare them from being sad or treating him different and living life doing what he loved.  Yes that makes me think, guess we will never know huh.  
But to you all take care tonight.

Bev - My husband and I drove around Virginia a little bit when we took my daughter back to Hollins and again when we picked her up four years later.  Beautiful area, especially the Blue Ridge Parkway.  I'd take a little "hot as snot" right now--we actually had about 3 hours of blue sky between rain storms.  Wettest June on record, and it's barely half over.  I haven't decided if I'm going to grow moss or rust first.  Of course, once we hit mid-July it will go from 60 to 90 in just a couple of days with no time to acclimate.  I guess that's the nice thing about working in an air conditioned office.

The power of prayer is amazing.  I saw a interview with Josh yesterday (posted on the CM site today) that Jake did get help with the pills, and both boys are on a "health kick" now.  I'm sure the prayers helped accomplish that.  We could use prayers for little Kyron Hormon right now, too.  The case seems to be coming to a head, but I have a sinking feeling it's too late for him. 

I am going to watch next Tuesday's episode on Wednesday.  It's too close to bedtime otherwise (can't watch horror flicks at all).  Do those of you who knew Phil personally and aren't sure about watching want me to post a general thumbs up or thumbs down on Thursday?  I worry for you guys because my memories of my mom before her stroke are permanently distorted by my memories of her afterward, and I don't want your memories of Phil to be tainted like that.  It's a really tough call since none of us knows how Discovery is going to handle it.  If you think it would be helpful, please let me know.  The hardest part for me so far was watching Johnathan lose it.  I'm dreading when they show word spreading across the fleet.

Hi Kim,
Im from just outside of Charlottesville, tiny little dot called "Keswick". Hot as snot is my new favorite way to describe life here. LOL

I used to get on here all the time, but then it kinda petered out for a while. There were a few "ladies" who didn't know how to play nice & were very upsetting. So I just stayed away for a while. Seems like they've wandered off now, or something, but it's nice to see the activity start back up & that the sweeter ladies are back posting again. Back when we used to get some "insider info" on the upcoming episodes & hear about Phil on a personal level we did come to "know" him and love him so much, faults & all. The main things to know about him (IMHO) are that he loved his fans, loved his boys, and his bike, and knew how to have a good time (and how to stand up for himself). I've prayed for him multitudes over the years. and my heart is so sad now that he's gone. I just want his kids to be ok. So I'll keep praying for them, just like I did for Phil.

HEY LADIES! How is everyone? I hope everyone is having a great week.  Thank God it is Friday though!

Debbie - How's it going sweetie? I haven't heard from ya in awhile.  Good to see you here! 

Gayle, I hope you had a great birthday.  I know! I know! I haven't called you yet, but it is only Friday.  LOL! I actually plan on trying to get a hold of you this afternoon while I relax by the swimming pool.  Awwwww, can't wait! 

Claudia - HEEELLLLOOOOO Grand Poobah! Hope you are doing great!

PJ - How are you? It has been a long time since I last spoke with ya.  I sure have missed you! I am glad to see you here on the board!

Kim - Welcome to the site! This is a great place to be and there are a bunch of wonderful women here.  If it weren't for Phil, none of us would have met.  We have forged some very strong friendships here and we have Phil to thank for that.  We all loved Phil! Not just the Phil that most everyone "knows" from the Deadliest Catch, but Phil the man, flaws and all.  Phil had a good heart and will be missed, but he has definitely left a lasting imprint on all of our lives in one way or another.  As for my kidney stones, thanks for the sympathy.  They are miserable.  I just got out of the hospital last weekend after passing my 361st and largest kidney stone to date.  A 6mm.  I swear I think I gave birth! LOL!!! But, the CT scan shows I am kidney stone free...at least for the moment.  Anyway, welcome again.  I look forward to talking with you again.

By the way Claudia, as far as the kidney stones go, you can take over at any time for me you know.  LOL! Just kidding! I wouldn't wish those things on anyone.  OK, maybe on some of the trolls.  Kidding...sort of! LOL!! I know, I am not being very nice am I?!?

Well sistahs, I guess we all know that the episodes we have all been dreading are coming up on the DC.  My neighbors have been kind enough to record every episode this season and burn it to DVD, so the jury is still out on whether or not I am going to watch anymore of this season.  I just think it is too soon.  I don't think I can handle it.  Last weeks episode just about did me in and it hasn't even gotten to the worst of it yet.  I hope, regardless of whether or not any of us decide to watch the rest of the season or not, that people will start coming into chat next week.  I will definitely be on after "After the Catch" which will be 10pm central time for me.  Well, it is time for bed.  I have to get some sleep if I plan on relaxing by the pool this afternoon.  This 100+ degree heat and humidity is about to do me in.  I love you all my sistahs.  Talk soon!  HUGS!!

Sorry Kim, didnt mean to scare you   Ok girls...Im seriously thinkin Im gonna go back to work! Brian is just gonna have to deal with it But, I dont think I'll go back into dental, although the money is good, its BORING! As for the show, I saw the first episode and thats it, so I cant comment on the direction the show is going. Im sure Discovery is going to milk it for all they can A few people have said they will base their opinions of Discovery on how they handle/edit Phils passing. So, now that Thom Beers is editing the show and Josh says he doesnt know how it will be done, I cant watch it. You guys will tell me what you think of it, then maybe I'll watch a rerun sometime? So, my fabulous captive audience of 3, Im off to the DMV to renew my license and try to bluff my way through the vision test!!

Hi Everyone,
I'm praying for Jacob. My heart was broken when he admitted that to Phil. I don't know if I can watch next week. I just don't think I have the stomach for that...I get sick just thinking about it. It seems like he's still here!

Thank you guys.  I felt really bad yesterday.  You all know Phil as a real person.  I feel like I'm trying to put together a jigsaw puzzle without the picture on the box, and sometimes pieces don't seem to fit.  For instance, it really bothers me that he would blow smoke in someone's face who asked him not to smoke in a subway.  Phil being flat out rude to someone doesn't seem to fit with the picture I'm getting of him.  I can understand the driven personality, the need to live on the edge etc.  Some people are just hard wired that way, but then it doesn't seem to fit that he would retreat into a garage and build bird feeders because his wife was yelling at him.  He doesn't seem to me to be the type of person to back away from conflict or avoid talking things out.  So that's why I'm asking questions--who is this guy, really?  And after Tuesday's show, I'm really worried about Jake--addiction has touched my family, still does, and it scares me.  Is he OK?  Has he gotten the help he needs?  The mom in me is going crazy.

Gayle, I just posted on your wall about missing your birthday.  I am sooooo sorry.    I hope you had a blast!

I'm glad to see our little Phil corner coming alive again. 

Kim, NO WE DON'T WANT YOU TO GO AWAY!  Everyone is welcome here.  We had people, in the early days, that caused trouble.  And although they don't seem to post here....they DO monitor this site and then post their nasty stuff on their own spaces.  So please don't take offense.  Everyone that has a genuine admiration for Phil, Johnathan, and all the DC bunch are welcome here. 

Speaking of the show.  I watched both DC and After the Catch this past week. 

DC: Its getting close and it just breaks my heart.  I was saddened to hear Phil say that Josh was never one to run the boat.  I care about both boys but I have to admit that Josh is my favorite.  I know.....I AM bad to choose, right?   

After the Catch:  I think they handled it wonderful.  Opening the show with Phil's memory (and picture) was heart warming.  The Duck Fart bit was cute...especially when Johnathan admitted to Phil he never really liked them! 

Then....and I have watched this several times....the film clip of Phil and Johnathan with and on their bikes was priceless.  Johnathan's reaction was heart-breaking.  Whether Johnathan knew, before hand, about the clip or not....his reaction was all Johnathan.  What a man John is!

Johnathan's reaction to the voo-doo parlor visit was another REAL Johnathan moment too.  Loved it and John's mention of his Grandmother too.

Heeelllooo ladies, it's been a while! Was just chattin with Gayle and she reminded me of the site. So thought I'd come in and chat away. I'm like Gayle and Deb, know some of the guys like friends not fans also. And I never use my friendship with them, just is not right. Anyway, trolls will be trolls until that bridge finally collapses on them...hehehe.

I just have to say I pulled away from the DC scene pretty much, got tired of the stalkers and crap coming after me...lol! But I try to watch the show and I HATED last nights eppy of DC...i am sooo dusgusted with Discovery, it's all about $$ and rating with them which I already knew. Just sooo sad the way they edited things and I'm soooo not wanting to see next weeks eppy.

Anyway, I'll try to stop in more, just been busy busy busy and Storm got me a DROID for my birthday so i'm addicted, right Gayle??? WINKWINK

Have a great day all!

PJ

Thanks for answering, Gayle.  As I said in the beginning, I just stumbled on this website by accident & don't know anything about the people who post here except that they seem to genuinely care about Phil the person, not Phil the celebrity, and genuinely care about each other.  I truly didn't mean to butt in to a private group or offend anyone by asking questions.  I just think he's a fascinating person and someone I'd like to know more about.  Kind of like when an author introduces a character in a book and then leaves the reader hanging when the book ends.  I'm really sorry if I've over-stepped without knowing it.  May I  still read the posts, or do you want me to just go away?

The weather sucks here in Seattle!!! When we got out of Kooza last night, it was a torrential downpour. Everyone had on sandals and shorts! LOL! We bought the last umbrella they had...whew!! I told Russ today to get back up to Seattle. He swears everytime he comes up, the weather improves. He texted back and said he's been here since Monday... I told him Id give him until tomorrow to deliver, or his theory is out the window!! Actually, I hear the weather is supposed to clear up soon! YAY! And Kim: I did know Phil before the show got popular, and we all met thru the show, or thru Phil. Thats how Debbie and I met, thru Phil. We just dont post it all over the internet, that we actually KNEW the man...dont need the 15 minutes of "fame" thru association. Thats why we post here..The few that are here, know the story. If Im going to CALL someone thats on the show, I dont post it on their FB page, so the world can see I actually CAN call them. Im not that desperate for attention Nor do I suck up to every girlfriend, or friend they have to be "in" That would be pathetic.

Re weather:  Five days until summer starts, and it's still 48 and pouring down rain.  Maybe we could split the difference and both get mid-70's and party sunny?

Just wanted to wish Gayle a Happy Birthday.  I know I already wished her one on Facebook but this is where we all met.  If Claudia hadn't made this site I would have never met some wonderful people that share my love of Deadliest Catch and the Captains. Thanks again Claudia.

So Happy Birthday Gayle.  I hope you have an AWESOME birthday.

Good to know he has a home, but still misses Dad.  I have a feeling our Blonde would be perfectly happy with anyone who gave her treats and let her sleep on the bed!  I don't think she's very discriminating.  Can't imagine life with out pets, or kids, for that matter.
Would you mind if I asked some other questions?  Like, did you all know him or each other before DC?  And he seems like such a wonderful person what went wrong with the marriage?  You can tell me MYOB, but it sure seems like he should have been a "keeper."  There are days I'd give my right arm for a guy that cooks!  Or was he just one of those people who are easy to love but hard to live with?
PS - Loved the pics with Dhani Jones.  That is a really neat show.  Maybe when some of the captains retire there'll be a spin-off of DC where they travel around the globe and fish with the locals, talk about taking care of the enviroment and teach viewers how to cook a local specialty.

Hey Kim- Dave and Marilyn, Phils friends and some time neighbors took Giz when Phil was fishing, and they just kept him. They have a German Shepard we trained, and the 2 got along well...Marilyn said Giz will run to the door if he hears a bike, or loud car go by. Poor guy, but dogs are resilient, and Gizmo was comfortable with his other family too
