Try to explain to newbies just how hot and humid towboatin is in the summer. They all say they love working in the heat. Until they get on the barge. Most quit some fall out. Had some go to the hospital. Always say man that's the hottest place ever. Haha

There's a special woman. She doesn't seem to mind, but I know she does. She accepts it, because she accepts me for who I am. I care.

There's others in my family. Some refrain because it's socially unacceptable these days. Some because of the heart disease that runs in our family.

I feel like I'm missing out. I can't stand too close to the ones I care about and share their lives, because I stink.

I have a hard time walking without getting out of breath. I can hardly bend over to tie my shoes without wheezing. I've gotten weak, and I've gotten lazy.

I quit. Starting yesterday around dinner time. I don't remember the exact hour, but there ya go. I'm ****ing done smoking.
I used to smoke a pipe. Got to the point of smoking a pound or two a week. Sores in the mouth. Pretty bad.

My wife was sitting in the living room one day while I was at work. She was crying and praying that God would help me stop smoking. 3 year old daughter walks in and asks "What's wrong, mommy?" Mom: "Daddy smokes his pipes and it's hurting him and I'm praying that he'll stop." Child: "Can I pray too?" Mom: "Sure honey..." Child screws her eyes shut, folds her hands together and say "God, break Daddy's pipes in his hands. Amen." She's done praying, and goes off to play.

I owned 5 expensive pipes with the acrylic stems that you could drive nails with between bowls. All of them well broken in. Four in a row snapped in my hands while taking them apart to clean them. The last broke during a Christmas visit to the outlaws house. Went to Walgreens and bought a Dr. Grabow. Smoked that for a little while. First time I took it apart, you guessed it, I snapped the stem.

Quit cold turkey after that. My wife didn't tell me about daughter praying for over a year. She was afraid I'd get mad. I'm not mad, I brag on them both whenever this subject comes up.

You can do this, Trip.

I think its time for me to go back in and get another pointless meningitis ..
I mean steroid shots for my back . Got the last MRI and everything has gotten worse with a bit new stuff . Mind you , I have had almost a dozen different type of injections in less than 4 months time trying to get back on track and all have failed and the shots hurt worse than my back does .
Now he wants to try it again in a different spot I did 5 full service winterizations yesterday and thought I was going to die even with 50mg of the fentynal $hit .
Going to be a tough season with no help , I can see that already
But at least I get to rock out on my pontoon while making the green

Knew a guy from Memphis, TN who went to work the barges on the MS river. He wore three pair of gloves and still quit the second winter; said it was just too cold out there with nothing to break the wind.

Only thing he said about the heat was that any thin metal got REALLY HOT in that sun.

An old school, franklin-type wood stove would be pretty funny/classic.

French, Indian, blacks, some Spanish... similar to Haiti.

Creoles are pretty much mutts. Random fact that not many know, there is actually a creole language. Some bastardization of the above associated languages I guess.

They're also some of the smartest, most loyal, wildest, and ingenious people I've met. Too bad I can't understand a single damn thing most of them are saying. Even when they're speaking "English".
