…”afraid of future competition”…

This country has always Protected it’s IMPORTANT PEOPLE with Weapons/Guns! As do other nations around the world.

Just for example, for those Idiots who don’t understand that, maybe this might help you. In our country we protect The President, with Secret Service Agents, both while in office & even once he (so far there has never been a HER) has left office for LIFE. The Vice President for as long as he (again, there has never been a HER) is IN office. All of our Legislative Offices, Judicial Offices, Military Bases, and on and on and on.

In this Country Children (Elementary School, High School, & yes even Colleges) have pretty much been considered  as “Hands Off”. But it seems as thought that has changed too. For some strange, Charles Whitman decided to change that in Austin, TX. back in the 1966. And the most recent down in Parkland, FL.

Crazy People come in all shapes, forms, sizes, colors, & religions. I’m sure there are probably many other categories that could be listed. Some influenced by politics, video games, religious beliefs, drugs, dropouts, unsuccessful students, lack of love or supervision at home, and on and on and, on. But for some reason it doesn’t seem to be of the utmost importance to protect the future leaders of this country. Does that show that current Career Politicians want to eliminate the completion in future years? I sure as hell hope not. Although some I DO wonder about!

I realize that Federal, State, County Governments, & Local Municipalities would have to work that into their budgets. And like ALL good politicians none of them want to raise taxes to cover such issues. But throw “A Little PORK” item out there that they can steal from & they’ll all vote for it. Nor do any of them want {{{{{ GUNS }}}}} in schools for possible protection situations. They would rather let Law Enforcement handle that. Then they have dodged that “Budget Bullet”.

Then there is the argument about Law Enforcement Response Time! Hum-m-m…recently in Florida it took 20 some odd minutes! WHY!!! How do YOU feel on this? Maybe YOUR child, niece or nephew, neighborhood children will be next? Hum-m-m…Oh well, lets study it & MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, vote on it in a few years. We’ll just wait on our Career Politicians to decide on that, if they’re really NOT afraid of future competition…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”But oh they’ll ALL be Talkin’ “…


This mornin’ our Nation suffered from the actions of yet another CRAZY! At approximately 7:00am ET/6:00am CT a Stranger, I’ll refer to him as Stranger #1, on a street in Alexandria, Virginia asks another Stranger, I’ll refer to him as Stranger #2, about some men out on a Baseball Field in a local park, “are those Democrats or Republicans”?  Stranger #2 responds “Republicans”. Just a few moments later GUNSHOTS begin to ring out! A US Congressman lays on the ground WOUNDED! Luckily it wasn’t Life Threatening we later found out. And few others as well, including Protection Detail members. Also, Stranger #1, the shooter, was shot & taken down. After hearing the reports on the News, about all that had transpired, by the DC Police & Alexandria, Virginia Poilce, & as well as others, I predicted (@ approximately 11:00am ET/10:00amCT) “I just wonder if the “Shooter” will ever make it to the inside of a Court? Hum-m-m-m…”. I less than an one (1) I then heard the “Shooter had passed away”. I then posted a second comment (@ approximately 11:45am ET/10:45amCT) “I hate to say “I told you so, but, I TOLD YOU SO”!…“. Now, let the RUMORS Begin! ALL of the Talkin’ Heads are droolin’, as they rush for their microphones & cameras, to be the 1st to spew what little is STILL known about exactly happened & why. Hell, most of them will be Talkin’ just to hear themselves Talk! But oh they’ll ALL be Talkin’! You know it’s goin’ to happen…”Hold’em Hook”…..BG>

Goin' for a ride #2   7-12-14 - Copy

Yesterday started out Slow & Cold. Finally got me a couple of Mugs-O-Joe in me, got dressed & headed out to the Gym to get my mornin’ workout tended to. Again I enjoyed sharin’ some time with an Ole Friend there. Finally completed my hour of self punishment & headed for the house. As my hands were shakin’ in anticipation, I walked in the door, there sat that Shinny Joe Pot, still with steam risin’ from its spout, I drained that Pot of the last Mug full. As I carefully caressed it & sipped slowly I was tryin’ to decide what to do with the rest of my day. I checked the Weather Channel, it’ll be near the 70 degree mark before days end. Then I thought I heard a {{{ Purrin’ }}} comin’ from the basement. Then it dawned on me, it was the Ole H-D callin’ wantin’ to be taken out for a ride. I finished my last Mug-O-Joe, headed for a HOT Shower, & got me some riddin’ cloths on. A Short time later I rolled the Ole H-D out of the basement, fired’er up & off we went. After riddin’ face into the wind a while, & enjoyin’ beautiful scenery along the roads, I ended up enjoyin’ a nice lunch @ the Waffle House in Lincoln, AL. As the Ole H-D waited outside, glissnin’ in the sun, she drew a crowd of admirers. After an enjoyable stop we headed off toward the Talladega Raceway. I hadn’t really thought about how deserted The Raceway is this time of the year, but was it ever. I decided to head to the New Shootin’ Complex, CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park, not too far away. If you’re not payin’ attention to where you’re goin’ you can miss that place! Hidden back in the “Back Woods” this is a very nice place. It’s a 500 acre complex! I was impressed. I kinda fell in line with a group goin’ in & toured the place with’em. Again, I was impressed with this facility. I look forward to goin’ back to do some shootin’ there. Time passed faster than I thought so I mounted the Ole H-D & we headed “Homeward Bound”. As I was headin’ out of the parkin’ lot & down the long twistin’, Entry & Exit drive my hips started to Cramp up on me somein’ fierce! Strugglin’ to control the Ole H-D I finally got to the bottom of the hill/drive. I had to get off to walk’em cramps out for a short while. Fearin’ the 20 mile ride home, I mounted back up & headed on thru the back roads. After just a couple of minor twinges we finally made it back to the house. Got the Ole H-D put away and found me a bottle of Gatorade. I guess if there was a lesson learned this day it is “don’t go riddin’ like that after a mornin’ work out”! I’m not as young as I once was…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”get your Shot Guns, plenty of Shells”…


Deer season is now over. Many of you, Hunters, like me, didn’t even participate this year. Then there are those of you who took several good lookin’ Bucks with nice Racks & a few nice Doe! Then there are some of you, I know, almost melted down their gun barrels. Shootin’ at anything that moved. Many of you went many times & never saw anything big enough to kill. Yeah, I too have been there.

Well for those of you who are AVID HUNTERS “Rabbit Season” is still in & in most of Alabama runs thru March 5, 2017.There’s a New Species of Rabbit that has been discovered & added to the current listings of rabbit species. It has been determined to be a Cross Breed. The trouble is, they, The Dept of Wildlife, has not yet determined it’s true origin. But they are workin’ hard to discover its origin. Therefore  there is NO limit on’em. They’re most often found in Low Lying Areas & only come out about an hour before sundown. They run hard all night & bed down about an hour after sunup (See the picture attached)… .

Some of you may have seen’em & didn’t even know what you were lookin’ at. So, get your Shot Guns, plenty of Shells, a license, oh & permission to hunt the woods & fields where you thing you most likely can find’em. Good Huntin’ to y’all! Oh & let me know what they taste like once you’ve eaten a few…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

Introducin’ “The PUBIC HARE”…the-pubic-hare

…”I’m justa laughin’ “…

My bride has been upstairs all day watchin’ Christmas programs, “Chick Flicks” & makin’ Handmade/Crocheted Christmas  Stockin’ for our granddaughters American Girl Dolls. She has made’em for everyone else in the family, & some others, over the years, so those Dolls needed to have their own! I guess? Me, well I’ve been down in The Cave just chillin’. Really haven’t really accomplished anything. 09-10-2016-watchin-bama-footballYa never know what to do until ya’ve had a couple Cold Beers to think about it. But, I’ve been havin’ fun. those of you that know me know it doesn’t take a whole lot to keep me entertained. So every now & then I go outside, totin’ the ole BB Gun & pop off a round at nothin. But when that thing fires off it sends out a signal to the Big Dog/Hank, next door, to come arunnin’, barkin’ all the way lookin’ up to the trees to find the treed squirrel he thinks I have. The whole time it’s cold (low 30’s), windy, & mistin’ rain but that don’t keep ole Hank from answerin’ the call of The Hunt. Well I get a kick out of it anyway. I’m justa laughin’ the whole time. Now, where’d I set my Cold Beer?…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG> 

…”instead of a shower”…

Catch up on the mornin’ News-check, two Mugs-O-Joe-check, two Rice Krispies Treats-check, mornin’ workout-check, grocery store errand-check, quart of Gatorade-check, now last Mug-O-Joe-workin’ on it & another Rice Krispy Treat as I relax under the ceilin’ fan on The Deck contemplatin’ my next activity for the day. The dog across the slough sounds like he huntin’ company. I think the squirrels have bout stripped all the bark off of the big pine across the driveway. They’re just a scamperin’ up & down that thing. “Ole Pete”, the Blue Herron, is huntin’ his mornin’ snack down on the boat launch. He’d better hurry is all I’ve gotta say. Cause I’m contemplatin’ a Dip-n-the-Lake instead of a shower. Yep…it’s gonna be the Dip-in-the-Lake! Y’all don’t work too hard…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>
