Drunk Animals

African Booze Tree
It about a tree in Africa that has a fruit that ferments and causes the animals that eat the fruit to get intoxicated. Enjoy…

While the above is a little funny to us, it is certainly not funny when people get intoxicated. Someone said, “The first thing in the human personality that dissolves in alcohol is dignity.” Also, if you must drink and drive, drink Pepsi.

Gone Fishing
GoneFishing2 Today looks like a wonderful day to hit the lake and fish for some of those crappie. Ralph and I are heading down to Douglas this morning. We’ll hit the lake after a stop at Cracker Barrel for a good breakfast.

We’ll be trolling with my pontoon boat. I use the big outboard to troll, but I have a “Happy Troller” trolling plate installed on the engine which will slow the boat down to where we can troll at about 0.8 to 1.0 MPH, which seems to be a good trolling speed for crappie this time of the year. We’ll have 16 lines out: 5 on each side and 6 out the back. And we’ll be using twisters, plastic grubs, jiffy jigs, and flies with minnows. We’ll try lots of combinations and colors in hopes of finding a pattern.

CrazyCrappie The dogwoods are in full bloom which is a good sign we might catch some of those “slabs”… and I sure hope we get a few for the frying pan. There’s nothing like fried crappie filets with all the trimmings. Wish us luck!

The things we truly need that would help us can be obtained by praying to God.

Joke of the Day

His wife had just bought a new line of expensive cosmetics absolutely guaranteed to make her looks years longer.

She sat in front of the mirror for what had to be hours applying the "miracle" products.

Finally, when she was done, she turned to her husband and said, "Honey, honestly now, what age would you say I am?"

He nodded his head in assessment, and carefully said, "Well, judging from your skin, twenty. Your hair, eighteen. Your figure, twenty-five."

"Oh, you're so sweet!"

"Well, hang on, I'm not done adding it up yet."
