…”As for Me, on this day”…

So-o-o after sleepin’ late this mornin’ ( till 5:45 a.m.) I slowly got myself organized & movin’. I enjoyed Two (2) Mugs-O-Joe while checkin’ in on the happenin’s of the World, over night, & then it was off to my Wednesday mornin’ workout. The “Good News” is that there were NO injuries or pulled muscles. I slowly made my way home enjoyin’ just bein’ alive. Showered up, cloths in the washer, & I’m now enjoyin’ my lunch with my third (3rd) & final Mug-O-Joe for the day (I don’t want to get too hyped up). There was an important decision to be made there! Samiches & Chips were on the menu! The choice was between two (2) of my favorites. #1 – A can of Vienna Sausages, perfectly makes 1 & 1/2 samiches. The Vienna Sausages offer a perfect blendin’ of quality Pork & Beef remnants with just the perfect blendin’ of spices then delicately formed in to those “Ittiy Bitty Hot Dog” shapes. Oh, & that rarely found piece of chewy gristle-well just enjoy it. Perfectly packaged seven (7) to a can in a wondrous Secret Sauce, that in cold climates jells perfectly. When sliced in 1/2, five (5) of’em fit perfectly on a Full Smaich, slathered well in Miracle Whip (my personal choice), & the remainin’ two (2) on a 1/2 Samich, both prepared on White Loaf Bread. Or #2 – A can of Deviled Ham, makes two (2) perfectly portioned samiches. A Small sized can of Deviled Ham, as well, offers a perfect blendin’ of quality Ham remnants & with just the perfect blendin’ of spices then canned. Every now & then ya might even find a Special Surprise! It could be a slight sliver of bone or maybe even a small chewy flavorful piece of Fibrous Hoof, if your real lucky. Sealin’ all of that wondrous flavor & taste into a can. Just one (1) small can makes 2 perfect samiches, slathered in French’s Yellow Mustard (again my choice), & served on white Loaf Bread. Now both of these entree’s plate up just fine with your choice of chips & served with you choice of Beverage. As for Me, on this day, I chose option #2! Yum-m-m-m…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>


…”Funny isn’t it!”…

Catchin’ up on the News this mornin’ I just had to sit here & both laugh & be amazed. For some strange reason I see humor in the Negatives bein’ reported. Take for instance…

The DemocRATS are abandoning “Ole Harvey” Weinstein like RATS abandon a SINKING SHIP! How long can they tread water? I wonder who will be their next victim? You know, the one that comes floatin’ by, they climb aboard, & they sink their fangs & claws into. To replace “Ole Harvey” that is. Trust me, they’re already on the hunt for their next victim, DONOR! It’s just in their nature. They, The DemocRATS & Hollywood Elites, all knew what “Ole Harvey” was doin’. They just didn’t care! In their worlds it’s just standard operating procedure (SOP). As long as the Money & Favors flowed in their direction they all just ignored it. Oh, but now that “he settled sexual harassment lawsuits with at least eight women” (via the NYT) they, The DemocRATS & Hollywood Elites, just can’t seem to “Sling the $#!+” off of their hands fast enough. I wonder if Hillary will give back the, reportedly, $45,000.00 “Ole Harvey” donated to her “Losin’ Presidential Campaign”? Funny isn’t it!…..BG>

…”it’ll be ready should we need it”…

It’s “GAME DAY”! Oh & Hurricane NATE is ah knockin’ on the the door of the Gulf Coast! I hope all you folks directly in it’s path are prepared. God be with you all. For us, here in “The Big Pell”, it looks as though we’re goin’ to get a Big Blow out of it tomorrow & for the next few days we’re also goin’ to have “a bad case of DAMP ASS” here. Thank goodness we don’t live in a low area. I’ll get the the Gen Set set up here in just a little while so it’ll be ready should we need it tomorrow. Y’all keep an eye & a ear out for the Weather Conditions & Warnin’s in your areas. I hope your College Teams fare well today. Unless your for em “Aggies”, Texas A&M! {{{{{ ROLL TIDE TOLL ! }}}}}…..BG>

…”It’s the little things in life”…

Yesterday mornin’ I was handed a Grocery List & was pointed in the direction of the Grocery Store. Well how hard can that be? As for me, well, that damn Grocery List always seem to get me in trouble. It seems like there are always items that come home that weren’t on that Grocery List! I realize I’m probably in the vast minority of people that this happens to. But as far as I was concerned it was a good shoppin’ trip. And as usual, I was reminded how simple of a list it was. I never claimed to be a good shopper anyway. From there my day rebounded. I received a return call from a friend (he’s a Financial Advisor) about lunch we had been tryin’ to set up for a while. I told him I was goin’ to be headin’ to “The Ham” for an evenin’ get together so we decided to meet 1/2 way along my route. I arrived a little early which is usual for me. To my good fortune I happened to run into a cousin of mine, that I hadn’t seen in a while, that had been havin’ lunch with some of her friends. We spent about 10 to 15 minutes catchin’ up on the others family & other topics as well. It was very enjoyable. The Financial Advisor arrived & my cousin left. Ya never know who you’ll run into! The Financial Advisor & I caught up over lunch. We weren’t there to discuss business just to catch up on each other. It was very relaxin’ to just talk. Business never came up! A short lunch seemed to turn into a 2 hour period of total relaxation. We bid each other a farewell as he had to return to the financial grind & I had time to burn, before my later engagement. So as fate would have it the Bass Pro Shops facility just happened to be along my route as well. So I popped  in there to kill a little time & see what I needed. After perusing the various departments & examinin’ items of interest, I exited there with the same amount of money, in my pocket, as I entered with. I headed back to “Ole Big Red”, my trusty old Expedition, cranked up my tunes & headed toward “The Ham” for my evenin’ get together. Again I was a little early as was one another friend who was there for for the evenin’ get together. As we were catchin’ up a couple of others arrived. Oh & by Couple I mean TWO (2) other friends arrived right on time. About an hour went by & another couple of folks came in. And again by couple I mean Two (2) other friends (husband & wife) joined us. The Six (6) of us laughed as we caught up, shared stories, & talked about others that weren’t there. those that were too busy, too tired, too sick, too poor, or too far away. Yeah, probably YOU! As the Witchin’ Hour, 8:00 p.m., drew near the small group thinned as usual. I departed shortly after the Witchin’ Hour myself as the last Two (husband & wife) were orderin’ them somethin to eat. It was just a handful of folks but an enjoyable evenin’. As “Ole Big Red” & I made our way back to “The Big Pell” I had all of the windows down, the Sun Roof open, my favorite Oldies Cranked Up just enjoyin’ the 70 degree evenin’ air whippin’ thru “Ole Big Red”, as it also sucked all of the dust out of it. The Moon was Full, Bright & there wasn’t a single cloud in sight. MY 45minute drive went by too quick as I found myself turnin’ into my driveway. I coasted down to where the Garbage Can is kept, hooked it to the trailer hitch & back up the 200 ft long driveway I went, so I wouldn’t have to do it before the sun comes up in the mornin’. It’s the little things in life. Good night all..”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”Let that sink in”…

Folks THIS is (see the quote below) truly a HORRIBLE thought! I saw this on someone else’s FB post this mornin’. I read it twice & really had to think it thru. And then it dawned on me IT’S TRUE! IT’S SCAREY! The Liberalism/Socialism that is bein’ taught to the youth of this country, K-5 thru College, has already started turnin’ the direction of this Great Nation. It didn’t start yesterday. It has been happenin’ for years, slowly, deliberately. A slight alterin’ of facts here & a deletion of facts there. A effective change in curriculum. “The Dumbin’ Down Of America”! Not only are they changin’ the direction of our country but they are Erasin’ the History, selectively, as they go. Many of YOU question & deny the term “GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS”. Really? I mean {{{ REALLY ! }}}.

“A Generation taught to hate the country will refuse to defend it as well. Let that sink in”…Author Unknown

It truly is {{{{{ SCARY ! }}}}}. God Bless America…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>


…”Maybe that’s what’s wrong with me now”…

Here, in The Big Pell, on the Lake, today it is Beautiful. If there’s a down side to this day it is the Wind that is blowin’. I just stepped out on the downstairs patio & it is blowin’ pretty good. The “FOX6” site say’s 11mph. Well that my be in The Ham! When I see the White Caps rollin’ in from the main channel it tells me somethin’ different. But the Sky is Blue with scattered Clouds. Boat traffic is limited. I’ve seem several Bass Boats gettin’ beaten by the White Caps, but, they gotta Compete! No Wake Boarders, Skiers, or Surfers though. So after such a good day of NCAA Football yesterday I’m just goin’ to chill, here, in The Cave. The Tigers from Auburn really whooped the “Hail State” Dawgs, The Trojans (NO not those kind) of TROY  laid it t? the The Cat’s of {{{ “L S WHO” ? }}} in front of their Home Comin’ QUEEN. Oh! & my Crimson Tide, {{{{{ ROLL TIDE ROLL ! }}}}}, of BAMA beat the Hottie Tottie (Black Bears-Hahaha!) Rebels of Ole Miss like a STEP CHILD! I can say that cause I WAS one! But I never got beaten, came close a time or two though. Maybe that’s what’s wrong with me now. Oh well, Y’all enjoy “this day that The Lord has made”…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>
