Fishing Today

I’ve Gone Fishing Today
If all has gone as planned, I may be on the lake when you read this. Doug, Ralph, and I have headed back up to South Holston Lake for some more trout fishing. We troll going anywhere from 30 to 70 feet deep.

Some People Don’t Fish
Here’ some bloopers by Bill Dance, which perhaps have influenced some people to not get into fishing.

I Went to the Arthritis Doctor Yesterday

They took x-rays of my knees yesterday and even though the picture came out good and clear, the results were not so good. It was easily concluded that I have advanced osteoarthritis on both knees and I am an excellent candidate for knee replacements. (To me it looked like both knees had bone on bone.) I was afraid of this… I told the doc I’d hold on until next year, and if I was still kicking I might let him schedule me to see an orthopedic specialist… maybe sooner if the pain gets too bad.

Joke of the Day

A Congressman was once asked about his attitude toward whiskey.

He said, "If you mean the demon drink that poisons the mind, pollutes the body, desecrates family life, and inflames sinners, then I'm against it.

"But if you mean the elixir of Christmas cheer, the shield against winter chill, the taxable potion that puts needed funds into public coffers to comfort little crippled children, then I'm for it.

This is my position, and I will not compromise."

I am sorry to hear that about your knees, Granddaddy. I think a lot of damage has already been done to my knees, and I had to quit running because of it. I will mostly likely be in your shoes one day. I hope it's not until I'm 70!
