…”Timin’ is everything”…

Thank God the Senate Race here in Alabama is over. MY Party, the Republican Party, didn’t win. So be it! That’s a big disappointment for me. I wasn’t especially proud of the Republican candidate, a former Judge & The Chief Justice for The Alabama State Supreme Court. But he was the Party Candidate. He had a lot of Political Baggage in his past. He was twice removed from “The Bench” durin’ the “Obama years” for defyin’ (Democratically Appointed) Federal Judges on issues not yet ruled on by The US Supreme Court! But the biggest issue was that 4 weeks prior to the “Special Election” all of sudden women from his past, I believe 4 or 5 of’em, it was hard to keep up with “the count & the amount”, some from as many as 40 years ago just appeared with rumored unwanted sexual touchin’s & such. Nothin’ was ever proven! 40 years ago or recently? The accusations were enough to get press, Bad Press. Oddly enough there had NEVER been charges brought up on him in his past. And this man had been thru many political races & won most of’em. That’s rather odd I think. Now, could it have been attributed to all of the “Out-of-State-Money” showing up to fund the opponent, huntin’ any dirt they could find/buy on the Republican? It raises too many questions. The DemocRAT candidate was a former Federal Prosecutor runnin’ on his past history, which isn’t especially impressive (to me) either. But bein’ the DemocRAT candidate the DNC was really funnelin’/spendin’ money, by the MILLIONS, tryin’ to snatch a Senate Seat from Alabama. As Alabama is prominently a Republican State. Several of the accusations brought froward were quickly shot down & the people that brought them forward just seemed to vanish as quickly as they appeared. Hum-m-m-m? The main one finally admitted she ALTERED some “Evidence” she produced, on her own, that was 1st reported to have been written in an old year book, that her “Female Shyster” wouldn’t let anyone see, by the Republican candidate. The DemocRAT won in the end. “Timin’ is everything” I guess. I’ll close by simply sayin’ “God Bless America”! Cause we’re goin’ to need it…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”ran off the Local Canadians”…

20Spinnin' Rod.With my third (3rd) Mug-O-Joe & the Fog liftin’ I started my day this mornin’ with little “Top Water” action. A Spinnin’ Rig with a Bone Flavored/Colored Popper. Bur-r-r-r it was 48 degrees here on the slough with a slight breeze. As I approached the Pier it seems my activities ran off the “Local Canadians” (Geese). I had several strikes, hung two, lost both. But it was fun…“Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”Hot Tottie”!…

It’s been one of those long dreary Fall Days. Got a lot accomplished though. Just kickin’ back right now, in my La-z-boy, with a nice “Adult Beverage”! Served myself up a couple of shots of Amaretto in a Whisky Sippin’ Glass, ran it thru the Microwave to warm it up. A true “Hot Tottie”! If you haven’t enjoyed one you SHOULD! Aahhh…”Hold’em Hook”!….BG>

…”Someone HAS to know!”…

Watchin’ the News this mornin’ I am again reminded of a question I have asked many times, of many people, & NEVER gotten an answer to it. It seems as though NO ONE wants to talk about it! Oh, and YES I am an ALABAMA Fan. But NO I’m not a “HATER”! So, I’m goin’ to ask it AGAIN! “WHO PAYS for the Clean-up @ Toomer’s Corner” after Auburn wins a football game & then Fans ROLL The Trees there with all of that Toilet Paper (TP)? On the News this mornin’ it showed someone pushin’ a Powered Blower, a couple of people/men with rakes werea rakin’, a Street Sweeper runnin’ along the gutters of the street there with one man walkin’ along pointin’ down at the mess, & several standin’ around watchin’. They must have been the Supervisors or Stand-by Rakers waitin’ their turns. And just by circumstance, they were ALL wearin’ those Reflective type Safety Vests.Which I guess is a good thing. Either way I’m sure they’re bein’ PAID! BUT BY WHO? Do The City Tax Payers (pay a hidden Tax charged on purchases)? Does The University (in the form of a Tuition increase for a slush fund)? Does the University add a $2.00 (+/-) increase on the 100,000 (+/-) Game Tickets Sold? Is there a surcharge on every Roll of TP sold within a 50 mile radius? Are the Local Businesses around town required to kick in a % of their Sales Profits? OR is it a combination of ALL of the above? WHO PAYS FOR THIS! Someone HAS to know! An inquirin’ mind wants to know…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”Folks, let me tell ya”…

Just Chillin'Today I was the recipient of a “Beautiful Lovin’ Letter”. Let me give you a little background here. My Middle Grandchild, a six (6) yr old 1st grader, was havin’ sort of down day a couple months back. I don’t remember the exact situation but it revolved around her bein’ the “Middle Child”. She was feelin’ sad & I told her I understood. I explained to her that “I too was a Middle Child”. And trust me it does make a difference in the life of a child. Many of you will recall “no you’re not old enough/ready for that”. Or “No he/she is the baby leave them alone or let them have it”. I explained to her the “First child” will always be the first to get to do things. “The Youngest” of three will always get by with more than the first two because they’re “The Baby”. “The Middle Child” is expected to learn from the older siblin’ & to help teach the younger siblin’. That’s just life! I said “just always remember You’re just as Special as the 1st or the 3rd child”. And always remember “you & I both are Middles & that will always be our special bond”. We will always be “Middle-Middles”. With tears in her eyes she said “I love you Papa” as she hugged me! Yes, yes, my eyes too were waterin’ up! Now to today. As my son & his family were packin’ up to leave, after havein’ been here the last few days, for Thanksgiving, “My Little Middle-Middle” comes out of their room & said “Papa I have somethin’ fpr you”! I asked “what is it? And she held up a letter she had written to me. Well, I was washin’ some dishes in the sink. {{{{{ YES I DO DO THAT FROM TIME TO TIME ! }}}}} So, I asked her to read it to me. Gigi told me to “stop & read her letter”, or somethin’ to that affect. I said “no I want Her to read it to me”. Well she did! Yes, I was wellin’ up with tears AGAIN! So everyone stopped in their tracks as she began to read. These are her (written) words.

“I love you so much Midl Midl. You are my twin. Win you told me you wr a midl child it sprised me with joy. I love how you play with me. It is like you are my bruther. I wish you livd with me. But you just dont’. (signed)…Midl Midl”.

Yep, you guessed it! I was wellin’ up with tears & my heart wasa thumpin’. Mom, Dad, & Gigi were all Ooooin’ & Aaahin’. I was holdin’ back the tears as best as I could! Folks, let me tell ya “Life just don’t get much better than that”!…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”If Vulcan is holdin’ his nose”…

Well there were no cloths bein’ washed in “The Brook” (The City of  Mt. Brook, AL) today. Oh, and that Mornin’ (Joe) Coffee probably was a little darker than normal & had quite a bite to it, didn’t it! Ahh-hahahaha…It appears as though one of two (2) things has happened there & I’m still waitin’ on the nightly NEWS to tell the truth here. Accordin’ to the “Teasers on the NEWS today” they kept reportin’ that many of “The Brook” residents (Sparties & Brookies) have been reportin’ that “Their Water is Brown”! Could that be considered “A Racial Slur”? Say it ain’t so! “Sparties & Brookies” don’t bath in Brown Water! Careful now (Pew!)…Hope that don’t last long! Have those “Sparties & Brookies” not been payin’ their Water Bills or what? Hum-m-m…According to The Birmingham Water Works Board (BWWB) it may have been due to “some repair issues” in the area and was due to Back-Wash in some Old Pipes. But as of earlier in the day NO fault was accepted on the BWWB’s behalf. If that is so, well, just let it flush it’s self out. Riiiight! My question here is WHO is going to be paying for all that Lost/Wasted water bein’ flushed thru? I’m here to tell you right now! The BWWB will NOT be issuin’ any Credits or Refunds. They only take money in over there. They don’t give it out! If your meter turns – then YOU PAY! I’ll bet “The PIG” had one hell of a run on “Body Wipes” today. When y’all wake up tomorrow mornin’ look up to “Red Mountain”. If Vulcan is holdin’ his nose then you’ll know the problem ain’t fixed yet. Hit yourself with another Body Wipe or two…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”So, yes I did!”…

It’s that time of year again. The “Holiday Season”! Turkey/Thanksgivin’ Day is this Thursday. I’m slowly gettin’ my chore list, I have been assigned, completed. Everything got vacuumed last Thursday. So when I took an “Ole Friend Fishin’ ” on Friday I didn’t get in trouble. Yesterday while my Bride was workin’ of some hand stitchin’ to try & get her New Fall Quilt finished I was takin’ care of the Washin’, Dryin’, Foldin’, & everything put away. Today’s agenda consisted of gettin’ all Six (6) of the Ceilin’ Fans upstairs vacuumed & cleaned off & replacin’ some of the light bulbs in the attached fixtures as needed. Got the ladder & vacuum cleaner put away & I didn’t even fall off of the ladder once. “DONE”! After scroungin’ around for somethin’ for lunch I just happened to find the last four (4) eggs in the frig. “Plop” went the butter into the skillet, cracked all four (4) of’em eggs gently, & got’em all in there without breakin’ any of the Yokes! After gently gettin’em rascals “over easy” in the skillet they platted up perfectly. A dash of Salt & Pepper to taste! Got me a couple of pieces of “White Loaf Bread”, for soppin’ up the runny yokes, like I did as a child, & a glass of Lemonade to wash it all down with. Remember how ya used to “lick the remainin’ runny yoke out of the plate, when your Mother wasn’t lookin”? Well, I’m home alone & No Body was lookin’. So, yes I did! Lunch is done, cleaned up & gotta head to the shower to defunk-a-fy myself. Hope you all have a wonderful day…”Hold’em Hook”!…BG>
