Friends and True Friends

Fishing Report
Ralph and I went to South Holston Lake yesterday. We had an excellent day. We caught 13 trout, and brought home 12 nice fish. Four of our trout were Lake Trout, and the Lake Trout were all big. The largest weighed a tad over 4 pounds, and the smallest weighed 3 pounds and 7 oz. The remaining fish were Rainbow Trout, a few of them were small. If you count the fish in the picture you will only find 9. We kept fishing for a while after we took the picture and caught 3 more. Why didn't we bring home 13 fish. The limit on lake trout is only 2 per day per person. Since we caught 5 we had to toss one back.

Note: We used Deeper Divers set to zero, and had them out with 150 feet of 17 pound test braided line. It seemed to put our lures (medium size spoons) at the right place... around 38-40 feet deep.


Someone sent me this a few days ago. I think you could replace the word "Southern" with "True". There's a big difference between "friends" and "true friends".


FRIENDS: Never ask for food.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Always bring the food.

FRIENDS: Will say 'hello'.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Will give you a big hug and a kiss.

FRIENDS: Call your parents Mr. and Mrs.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Call your parents Mom and Dad

FRIENDS: Have never seen you cry.

FRIENDS: Will eat at your dinner table and leave.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Will spend hours there, talking, laughing, and just being together.

FRIENDS: Know a few things about you.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Could write a book with direct quotes from you.

FRIENDS: Would knock on your door.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Walk right in and say, 'I'm home!'

FRIENDS: Will visit you in the hospital when you're sick
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Will cut your grass and clean your house then come spend the night with you in the hospital and cook for you when you come home

FRIENDS: Have you on speed dial
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Have your number memorized

FRIENDS: Are for a while.

What kind of friend are you?
You don't have to be from the South to be a Southern Friend.


Happy Birthday to My Aunt Helen in Knoxville
Happy Birthday Helen Weals!!!

Quote of the Day
It's so hard when I have to, and so easy when I want to.

Joke of the Day
The local sheriff was looking for a deputy, so a blonde went in to try out for the job.

"Okay, honey," the sheriff drawled, "What is 1 and 1?"

"Eleven," she replied.

The sheriff thought to himself, "That's not what I meant, but she's right." Then the sheriff asked, "What two days of the week start with the letter 'T'?".

"Today and Tomorrow," she replied.

He was again surprised that the blonde supplied a correct answer that he had never thought of himself. "Now, listen carefully, who killed Abraham Lincoln?", asked the sheriff.

The blonde looked a little surprised herself, then thought really hard for a minute and finally admitted, "I don't know."

The sheriff replied, "Well, why don't you go on and work on that one for a while?"

So, the blonde wandered over to the beauty parlor, where her buddies were waiting to hear the results of the interview.

The blonde was overjoyed. "It went great! First day on the job and I'm already working on a murder case!"
