BEST laugh I’ve had in days!
BEST laugh I’ve had in days!
Cabin fever is a serious but not often fatal disease whose beginning coincides with winter freeze over on lakes and rivers. Long months of cold, dreary nothingness, the only comfort being the promise of a renewal with the coming of Spring. This winter has been something of an oddity. This weekend the highs will be in the 60’s in my part of the country, with ample sunshine. The lakes are still frozen, but the ice is getting dangerously thin.
There is an annual Boat and Fishing Show being held this weekend at the Sports Center in our town. I’m taking my beloved grandson, R.J., for his first show. I’ve looked forward to this for months. I’ve found out that the father of his best friend is dating my cousin! Small world. They’re coming with us and I’m planning a trip to SE Wisconsin in June with a professional guide for the 4 of us. My longtime fishing partner suffered a stroke last year and can’t/won’t travel as far as we used to. So I’m planning a number of guided trips to different waters to show my grandson some new experiences.
I wasn’t exactly Ward Cleaver when my girls were growing up. Truth is I was hardly there at all. Everything was always about me. I had no sons and RJ is my only grandson. (Tyler is also, but his mother doesn’t want much to do with me. She has her hands full with him and his battles with cancer.)
I love my granddaughters but there’s always been a special bond between boys and their grandpas. It’s the only time I get him to myself and I cherish every minute. The way he watches and listens to everything I try to teach him, it’s like I’m special to somebody. It’s the happiest time for me, since my daily routine never changes much. Hopefully, someday when he has sons and grandsons of his own, he can tell them about the times he went fishin’ with his grandpa. Maybe even tell a few fish stories. There’s not a better feeling in the world than being a shining light for someone else.
SORRY SO MANY….I’VE BEEN SAVING UP
It goes without saying that the ladies here are on a par with the most intelligent, sophisticated women on the planet. Upright, moral, willing to do whatever is necessary to protect their families and their country. However, there are a very large number of liberal women; unhappy, unfulfilled, either aggravated at their man or irritated because they don’t have one. There are blonde jokes aplenty, but the hair color is irrelevant when there is nothing underneath it.
In any case,a happy Valentine to all the snowflakettes out there.

Good day, citizens. Due to an increase in automobile accidents caused by drivers removing their hands from their vehicle’s steering wheel and saying, “Jesus, take the wheel,” we at the United States Department Of Transportation felt the need to issue this clarifying statement.
Please do not attempt to literally give control of your vehicle’s steering wheel to Jesus. Only a human person with a valid driver’s license who is sitting in the driver’s seat of a vehicle should be operating said vehicle.
“Jesus, take the wheel” is a figure of speech. It is not something meant to be acted out. It is a figurative saying indicating that you intend to give control of your life—not your motor vehicle—over to God.
If you say “Jesus, take the wheel” and then let go of your steering wheel, there is a good chance that you will be involved in an accident resulting in serious injury or death.
Please keep both hands on the wheel at all times while operating any motor vehicle. Thank you.
No central theme to this post; just a bunch of stuff.
