…”WHAT A WAY TO END MY DAY!”…

About 4:00p.m. Ole Chrome & Blue & I sauntered down to the water to relax a little. I quickly caught two Small Spots feedin’ on Schoolin’ Shad. Then I hooked a very nice one & it got off after a few seconds. Then as luck would have it I broke a very nice one off. My fault! I had a couple of burrs in my line. I headed up to the Ranger in the basement & got a brand new one & tied it on. Ya can’t ever have too many Chrome & Blues available. I got back down to the water, was fishin’ off of my neighbors pier, & hooked up to a “DOUBLE”! For those not familiar with that term it’s “Two (2) fish on One Plug at the same Time”! I fumbled around with my phone camera  & got a picture of’em. Not Wall Hangers but it was a DOUBLE! Then three (3) casts later I did it again!!! A SECOND DOUBLE! Again I got’em in, up on the pier, fiddle farted around with my phone camera & while restin’em on the pier one got off & back into the water. To make matters worse IT was the bigger of the second DOUBLE! It was now 5:30p.m. so I headed back up to the house. It was time for supper. But hey! WHAT A WAY TO END MY DAY! Oh, pics attached…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…” A good day I must say!”…

Yesterday a friend of mine, my Son’s Father-in-law, texted me inquirin’ if I wanted to go for a Motorcycle ride. He was here this mornin’ @ 10:00 a.m., on his BMW Motorcycle, as we had agreed on. I had gotten the “Ole H-D” out of the basement (earlier) & was ready. We pulled out headin’ for the Talladega National Forrest in Heflin to ride the Scenic  Parkway Drive. Wow! Ya shoulda seen all of the dust that blew off of the Ole H-D. Not to mention the Spiders a trailin’ behind from their silky web strans. Just swingin’ in the breeze till they let loose or were just flung off. It was a beautiful day for a ride. We cruised the Back Roads all along the way. Our first real sight was on Raceway Boulivard as we rode past the Talladega (DEGA!) Raceway. There were a LOT of folks already set up in the Camp Grounds & traffic was backin’ up tryin’ to make it to their Special Sites. On to Oxford via Hwy 78E to the H-D Store as I needed to get some engine oil. Also had them check out a funny sound, they didn’t find anything though. While there I ran into an Ole Friend, a young lady who was a customer of mine @ Magic Chef durin’ my workin’ years, there. I gotta hug, ofcourse, as wwe caught up. Still pretty as ever! I also ran into the son of an Ole Friend, that I used to call on @ Russell Corporation, in Alexander City. Got to visit briefly with him as well. But NO HUGGIN! Just a good manly hand shake! Ya just never know who you’ll run into. Off to lunch we went @ a local BBQ restaurant. After an enjoyable lunch & visit we headed out to Heflin, AL  still riddin’ up Hwy 78E to the Scenic Parkway Drine for the Talladega National Forrest. It was a wonderful windin’ twistin’ ride. We stpped @ a Scenic Overview there, met & spoke with an Ole Marine from North GA. An interestin’ gentleman I must say. We parted ways with the Ole Marine & on to the top! AS we crested the top the Restaurant/Office Buildin’ was pretty busy so down we headed on down the back side of the mountain. We came out on Hwy 21 in Munford, headed on toward the City of Talladega, passed thru there an on back to the house in The Big Pell! That was a very enjoyable 100 mile roundtrip ride. My riddin’ mate for the day took a quick breather here then on back to The Ham for him. A good day I must say!…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”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>

…”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>

…”free speech and expression”…

I received this in an email today from a friend. I thought it was worth mentionin’. So, my question to Mr. Roger “Do Nothin’ ” Goodell is “how do YOU decide where to draw the line on what IS or IS NOT (approved) free speech and expression for The NFL? Many would really like to know:

 

Here are some fun facts about the hypocrites over at the NFL..

In 2012 the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling for each game to pray, they also had an issue with Tebow wearing John 3:16 as part of his blackout to avoid glare and made him take it off.

In 2013 the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.

In 2014 Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference wearing a shirt that said “Know Jesus Know Peace” but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.

In 2015 DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing “Find the Cure” eye black for breast cancer awareness.

In 2015 William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence. (not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem…)

In 2016 the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers killed in the line of duty.

In 2016 the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.

So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression.

 

But it is approved to Protest the “Presenting Of The Colors/The US Flag & The Playing Of Our National Anthem! …”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>

…”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>
