Love the pictures....are all of them in/around Jersey? I've only been to the Shore but did not see all you're pics are showing. I love the pic with the whole fish in two in the cooler, and the one that looks like some hundred fish all piled on from head to tail. I too love the name....I need a nick name; but I have to ask what "Black Voices" are? Thanks again for joining.

Thanks Darrick,

Thanks again for the kind word of welcome.I look forward to sharing stories & adventures with all my new found friends. As for the catchy name it stems from my "Black Voices" days. I use to do some writing there from time to time on there message boards.

It was said that it was like I was spilling knowledge on the forum with my commentary, so they would always ask me to "spill some knowledge" or "Drop a drink" on the readers. And the name "DaDrinkDroppa" was born.

Well there you have it. Most people think it has to do with some kind of alcoholic beverage, However now you know it's origin & meaning.

Take care, and I look forward to sharing in th future.

One Love,
