MY 1,200TH POST!

***WARNING!***WARNING!***WARNING!

THIS POST HAS BEEN INFECTED WITH COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF SELF-INDULGENCE AND BRAGGING ON FAMILY

There are few things in life that can match the look of unbridled joy in a child’s eyes; getting a gift he really wants for Christmas, riding a bicycle for the first time or catching a fish all by himself. Such was yesterday for me. I’m grateful God allowed me the chance to share such a happy time with my beloved grandson. When I went to pick him up early yesterday morning he was sitting on the porch, grinning from ear to ear. My BFF, Randy, had the boat hitched up and ready when we got to his house.it was the first time RJ had ever been in a boat, so I told him to do everything Randy told him to do.

Oftentimes a twelve year old can get restless, fidgety, start whining when the fishing is slow. RJ was a trooper, peppering us with non-stop chatter. Randy hooked the first catfish and asked RJ if he’d like to reel it in…..runaway choice for silly question of the day. After that we both let him bring the fish in while we manned the landing net. Truth be told, he DID hook, play out and reel one in all by himself.

The hours flew by and soon it was time to head back so I could get him home in time for him to make football practice. We stopped at the porta-pot before we left the boat landing and while he was doing his business Randy looked at me and grinned: ‘I think he’s hooked.’

‘Ya think?’

Randy mentioned we go out in the spring for pre-spawn crappies and he’s already making plans to invite himself along during his spring break next year. As soon as I got him to his house he proceeded to brag to his big sis that he caught five catfish and Grandpa Rick only caught one.

We’re going to watch his first game Saturday and I’m pretty sure his mom is getting tired of hearing about his prowess with a rod and reel. Yesterday was a memory he’ll be able to tell his children. I get to take that thought with me to my grave. Not too shabby.

I went out Wednesday and bought a digital camera.It was a good investment.

    $22.5M Obama Vacation Mansion Houses 6 Bedrooms, Oversized Fireplace, Infinity Pool
    WONDER WHAT THE COMMON FOLK ARE DOING THIS SUMMER?

    The Huffington Post reported that the nearly 7000-square-foot Chilmark mansion, positioned on nine-and-a-half-acres, houses a sunken living room with double-height windowed walls that allow the first family a view of the heated infinity pool.
    Despite the estate’s amenities, Obama has been spending plenty of time on the golf course. On Wednesday, the president played a game of golf with NBA stars Alonzo Mourning and Ray Allen.

    The group played through the course at the Farm Neck Golf Club in Martha’s Vineyard. Days earlier, Obama was spotted on the same course playing a round with comedian Larry David and others

    Hillary Clinton’s Hamptons Rental Costs 87 Times What Average American Spends on Vacation

    The New York Post reported that the Clintons have shelled out $100,000 for the four-bedroom home in which they will stay during the final two weeks of August.

    According to American Express, average Americans spend $1,145 per person on summer travel, or just over 1 percent of the price of the Clintons’s Hamptons rental.
    The Clintons appear to have been slapped with a surcharge; the couple reportedly spent the same amount for the rental for a three-week Hamptons stay last year. Still, the price is half of the $200,000 they spent in 2013.

    YOU JUST KNOW THEY’LL WRITE THE WHOLE THING OFF,RIGHT?

    Same Moderators To Run GOP Debate In January, Including Megyn Kelly

    YOU DON’T THINK ROGER AILES DID THIS JUST TO GET RATINGS DO YOU?NAH,ME NEITHER.
    A petition circulated to get Kelly removed from moderating any future debates after many felt she attacked the billionaire mogul, but I guess that won’t stop her from asking questions to all the candidates come January, 2016.

    From L.A. Times:

    FNC has another debate scheduled in January before the Iowa caucuses and Kelly, “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier and “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace will be moderating again, a representative for the channel confirmed.

    Vet wounded in Iraq, Afghanistan forced to FIGHT with cop over handicapped spot

    I HAVE A HANDICAPPED PLAQUARD,ALTHOUGH MY DISABILITY IS NOT OBVIOUS.I HAVE COPD AND SEVER EMPHYSEMA.I CANNOT WALK MORE THAN A HUNDRED FEET WITHOUT HAVING TO STOP TO CATCH MY BREATH.MY BACK GIVES OUT AND I HAVE TO SIT AND REST.TO DATE,NOBODY HAS STOPPED ME AS I RIDE A CART AT WALMART TO ASK WHY I’M NOT WALKING..
    A tussle between a disabled veteran and a cop who thought he wasn’t disabled enough to use a handicapped spot is making national news — and getting the police officer some unexpected administrative leave.

    The incident occurred Sunday in Riviera Beach, Florida, when Sgt. Garry Wilson ordered army veteran Isiah James to move his car from a handicap parking spot despite Wilson’s having valid credentials, the Palm Beach Post reported.

    James recorded the incident on video and later posted it to Facebook — where it has gone viral.
    Wilson can be heard arguing with James until he apparently knocks the cell phone from James’ hands.

    “Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!” James said as the officer slapped his phone away. “You don’t have any right to do that, officer!”

    • So what’s a better solution? Let the cops allow anyone with the appropriate placard to use the handicapped spaces without limitation? If granny’s 16-year-old starting quarterback grandson pulls up with her placard, is he allowed to take one of the three or four handicapped spaces away from the next driver in a wheelchair by simply stating his handicap isn’t obvious?

      Let’s not get too pious and act like half the drivers in handicapped spaces aren’t there on behalf of some disabled uncle or sister or via some doctor who signed off on the “bad back” or “psychological stress.” The cop wasn’t confrontational just to pull rank, he was looking out for the next handicapped person who now has to park 20 spaces away.

      • I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but where I live, the handicapped parking spaces are nearly always empty. It’s vanishingly rare to see more than one such space occupied in a parking lot that has half a dozen or more spaces designated for the handicapped, even when nearly all the regular parking spaces are full.

        TRIGGER WARNING: SEXIST JOKE AHEAD!

        Men are like parking spots. The good ones are all taken, and the rest are handicapped.

    Putting Obama Over Country Is Treason

    Obama and his cronies have pursued an extraordinary campaign of vilification against Republicans and Democrats who dared to question the deal that will allow Iran to upgrade its nuclear program and obtain ICBM missiles, that will fund its terrorist activities around the world and even lift sanctions on terrorists like Anis Naccache, who engaged in nuclear proliferation, over European protests.

    The apocalyptic rhetoric out of the White House is meant to shut down the debate. Threats of war and accusations of treason are not the language of an administration that is confident in its own arguments.

    Cops: Shoplifter Hid Steaks In Colostomy Bag

    South Carolina man, 55, collared for meat theft at Food Lion store
    Woody, Hoyt’s 47-year-old girlfriend, offered a police lieutenant further details about her beau’s steak heist. “Mrs. Woody confirmed that Mr. Hoyt had taken meat from Food Lion by putting it in his colostomy bag,” a deputy noted.

    Thankfully, additional details about that means of conveyance were not memorialized by investigators.

    • Lots of trails go through pastures, and in many places you can’t avoid it. I’ve mountain-biked though herds many times in California and Colorado. Sometimes the cows are ok with it, sometimes not. Bulls often get nasty when you cross between them and their ladies. The calves make it twice as bad. But with calves or not, some cows (or bulls or horses) are just mean. You always look for the “mean cow.” They just try to kill you for no good reason. Often just because you compared them to Michelle Obama. Never do that out loud. 😉

    Cop pulls man over for best anti-Obama sticker he’s ever seen
    According to Liberty First News, the picture was taken when a pickup truck driver was pulled over by a cop he thought wanted to give him a ticket.

    Turns out, the officer just wanted a photo of the anti-Obama sticker on the guy’s cab window.

    A high road full of potholes

    Hillary actually said this (hat tip Breitbart):

    “You know. I think ah … I think we have to, as a nation, really ask ourselves some hard questions about how we truly feel about and treat each other. And the … level of vitriol and insult that we see on the Internet … ah … is … is so distressing to me and it goes exactly after people in the categories you have outlined. Um … So I … I would just say three things. One. As president, I would do my very best to model the kind of behavior that I would hope all our citizens would have. I’m not asking people to like everybody. I’m asking people to be respectful. And I am asking people to be kinder toward each other. You know? Kindness is a much underrated virtue … um … and … and … to exercise good old-fashioned … um … politeness.”
    This is Hillary Clinton — proud owner of the most destructive and vindictive opposition research team on the planet. If Hillary wants people destroyed, her Oppo-Research Special Forces repel from the skies to destroy them.

    This is Hillary Clinton, Commander-in-Chief of the Bimbo Eruptions Hit Squad.

    This is the same Hillary Clinton who used to have knock-down, drag-out, throw things fights with Bill in the White House.

    Hillary Clinton joining the civility brigade is about as likely as Ted Nugent joining PETA.
