…”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>

…”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> 

…”a date which will live in infamy”…

December 7, 1941

7:55 a.m. Pacific Time – Japanese War Planes Attack Pearl Harbor!!!!!

This is a day in our History that I hope we will NEVER ALLOW to be forgotten nor removed from OUR History Books by the Politically Correct (PC) Idiots we keep sending to Washington, DC. You know the type, those that feel we should forgive & forget everything that might offend others. I (Personally) DO NOT CARE WHO IT MIGHT OFFEND. {{{{{ WE WERE ATTACKED }}}}}! Our people were KILLED & Injured! WAR was thrust upon us. We should continue to teach our children, their children, & their children about this time in and about our history.

If you are fortunate enough to see one of these Veterans that survived WWII please walk up to them, shake their hand, & thank them for their Service. They have been known as “The Greatest Generation”. They stepped up and did what HAD to be done to defeat the “Axis Countries” to WIN WWII and bring the World back to Peace & a Safe Place to Live (for the most part) once again. Since then Our “Cowardly Career Politicians” have not WON any Military Actions they have taken us into. WAR is not easy to enter. But when we do we should go in it to WIN it. What EVER it takes. We are currently in a WAR on TERRORISM. Step up “COWARDS”! WIN this WAR!

…”call out their name”…

Just Chillin'

{{{{{ DREAMS ! }}}}}…We all have ’em. They come to us in our sleep as Funny, Fantasy, Horror, a look into our future, & times from our past. Things we have done, places we’ve been, people from our lives we have lost, & people we wish we had NEVER met. Some are so scrambled up they include people & places from our past that are intertwined with our present. Some are so realistic we wake up, lookin’ around, & are tryin’ to figure out where we are. Was it Real or Not? Yeah, we’ve ALL been there. Most of us, as children, dreamed of bein’ different things. When I was a child, Boys dreamed of being a Dad, Cowboy, Doctor (and played @ it every chance we got), Fireman, Policeman, Baseball/Football/Basketball Player, etc. Girls (I think) dreamed of bein’ a Mother, Nurse, Teacher, Singer, Actress, etc. Over the decades, of your life, how many times have YOU, due to a dream of yours or someone else in your house, looked under the bed, or been too scared to! How many times have you gotten up to look in a closet, with a flash light in one hand & maybe a Pistol in the other hand. How many times have you had someone too scared to sleep alone crawl in bed with you (that you didn’t take advantage of)? Have you ever had to go outside to find a limb movin’ in the nights breeze & scrubbin’ against the house? Only to go back to the door to go in & you see wet footprints in front of the door you came out of? Then realized someone, or the Dog/Cat, inside wet the floor you walked on (by a spill or bodily function)? Have you Won the Lottery in a dream? Most say they dream in “Black & White” while others swear they dream in Color. It’s a toss up. How about YOU? Have you had that dream where you’re fallin’ off a cliff, on a plane that is about to crash, a boat that is about to sink, etc. & wake up just before that final instant & you’re all sweaty! Or you were runnin’ from someone or a wild animal? Have you gone to bed dressed & woke up naked & don’t know WHY (were their any pictures)? Have you had that dream where you’re in front of a crowd speakin’ & they’re all naked (if only)? Who has dreamed of THAT OTHER person?, & hope you didn’t call out their name in your sleep? Hum-m-m…Y’all sleep well tonight...”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>
