…”Sweet Peas in a pot “…

This afternoon I took a Chartreuse Lizard down to the slough to walk the bank with. I ended up with three (3) very nice Spots. All of ’em were spittin’ half digested Shad up as I was tryin’ to get’em off of the hook. I missed the best one (1) of all though. On his second jump the threw that damn Lizard right back at me. But after about 45 minutes it was time to head back to the house & get supper a cookin’. My Bride a snoozin’ on the Love Seat. Cookin’ on my shoulders this evenin’. Pork Backbone/Ribs & Rice as a quick skillet entree’. Gonna throw Sweet Peas in a pot to simmer & Applesauce on the side. In just 30 minutes we’ll be sattin’ down to the table to enjoy – Yum-m-m…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”the highlight of my day”!…

20160422_105144-1_resizedThank goodness NATE has finally “Petered Out”. It has moved on north of “The Big Pell”. It has really been a wet & dreary day. I think even the Fish are bored. I’ve been out on the patio a few times, gazed down toward the water, & haven’t seen any activity. I’m now in my 2nd year of not allowin’ The NFL into my home. As a proud Veteran of the USAF I refuse to pay to be insulted by a bunch of overpaid radical athletes, that probably couldn’t make a livin’ doin’ anythin’ else & I’d bet many of’em can’t even count the amount of money, that high, they’re bein’ paid to play a game. Enough of that topic. But the highlight of my day was the Matas Greek Pizza I just enjoyed down here in The Cave. Thank you to who ever invented the Freezer! My condolences to a life long friend & her family on the loss of her Father this mornin’. My thoughts & prayers are with you. I hope you all have a better evenin’ than you had last night, where ever you are…”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>

…”the lucky car owner”…

Yesterday, after the mornin’ “Clown Show @ Wally World”, I was finally collectin’ myself as I headed toward my Pick-Up Truck, pushin’ my buggy of goods. As I strolled thru the Parkin’ Lot I did what I always do in a space like that. I was busy scannin’ all of the activity, for my own personal safety, goin’ on. The closer I got to my Pick-Up, I happened to notice that discarded old drink bottle out in the main drive part of the aisle I was walkin’ thru, with traffic comin’ toward me. I remember havin’ seen that bottle on my way into Wally World earlier. I had determined, @ that time, that it was a “Spit-Bottle”! Commonly used by folks (mostly Men of course) to Spit a mouth full of Spit/Saliva into as they Chew or Dip Tobacco Products. I have never used either product but I have heard that one DOES NOT want to swallow that Nasty-Stuff. So to keep from Spittin’ all over the place they are kind enough to Spit in an empty Can, Cup, or Bottle. And they usually have stuffed napkins or paper towels into them. Well, it didn’t long to determine that the approachin’ car was about to run over it. I was lucky to be on the opposite side that the bottle was facin’. I slowed my pace for moment & looked @ my cell phone & {{{ POW ! }}}…the car hit it! As I looked up I saw all of that TOBACCO SPIT & The Waddin’, from the bottle, coat the side of an off-white car parked near by. Damn what a MESS! I’m sure that the lucky car owner would like to personally thank the one who tossed their “Spit Bottle” out in the Parkin’ Lot, instead of into a trash can somewhere. I’d like to hear that conversation…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”What’s that phrase again?”…

I read this in a Face Book postin’ last night from “An Ole Boy from Gate City”. I thought it was well worth sharin’: “hughmm…am I the only one who finds it strange that blacks are disrespecting the same flag underwhich the armies fought that freed the slaves?…..just me I guess”.


That’s sad if you truly STOP & THINK about it. It points out JUST ONE of the problems with American History {{{ NOT ! }}} bein’ taught in Government & Private Schools. Maybe it’s somethin’ that SHOULD be taught, say possibly, durin’ ” BLACK HISTORY MONTH”. Naw-w-w, never mind…there would be too much TRUTH, about The/Our FLAG, in it. The DemocRats/Socialist/Liberals would go out of their frickin’ minds if “That CAT Got Out Of The Bag”! What’s that phrase again? “Just another way The Man’s keepin’ us Down”. Maybe there’s some truth to that?…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

 

…”Hey, it made my day!”…

It’s been an interestin’ mornin’ so far. Got up a little late, 6:00am, checked the temp out on the Deck an it was great. Got me a Mug-O-Joe & went out there to enjoy the mornin’. The realization hit me, again, as I sat there sippin’ My-Joe, “If you’re Lucky Enough to live on The Lake you’re Lucky Enough”! Well…you guessed it!… It was time for a refill on My-Joe, so I headed in, got said refill, & proceeded to get dressed to go work out. The Gym, I go to, never fails to entertain me. As I’ve said before “Spandex isn’t for EVERYONE! But then again It Is for SOME”! Oh, and I must admit “this mornin’ there were more Is’s than there were Isn’t’s”!  I’m glad I had finished my 20 minutes on the Tread Mill & was on the Stationary Bike puttin’ in my 15 minutes on it. There was a guy, about my age, on one of the Tread Mills just really bustin’ a sweat on one of those pre-programed workouts. You know the kind. He had his tunes on, I guess, with Ear Buds in, eyes closed more than open, just a Jammin’ & Joggin’! Well, Young Miss Spandex (one of the Is’s) climbed up on the unit next to him. I swear I thought there was a Commercial bein’ shot in there! Cause it was just like one of those Commercials we’ve all seen on TV. That poor guy just happened to open his eyes, looked into the Mirrored Wall in front of him, castin’ his eyes just off to his left, & {{{{{ BAM ! }}}}}! Down he went & got slung off the back of it! Those that saw it were either doin’ all they could to keep from laughin’, as though they had’t seen it all. Then there were those askin’, in loud whispers, “What Just Happened”? As for me, Oh Hell No! I burst out in laughter & liked to have fallen off that Stationery Bike I was blazin’ a trail on. I was hurtin’. Miss Spandex just smiled, as though that wasn’t the 1st time that had happened near to her before. The poor guy, in the mean time, got up off of the floor, untangled his Ear Buds that were wrapped around his head, grabbed his little Work Out Bag, & decided to quietly leave. He never said a word. As he exited the door the laughter rose a few decibels. Buy this time we, all the Older Guys, were focused on Miss Spandex as she finished her work out on the Tread Mill. Then she just politely left as well, with a cute little smile on her face. Hey, it made my day!…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>
