Maybe Fishing Today

Depending on the Weather
I may be fishing with Monk today on one of the lakes in in central North Carolina. I hope to learn about some new techniques and/or lures to help with the crappie fishing in Tennessee. Monk’s one of the best fishermen ever. He has the “knack”.

The Knack
Just what does it mean to have the knack for something. Well, the dictionary says knack is (1) a clever trick or skill (2) a clever way of doing something or (3) a special capacity that is hard to analyze or teach. One thing for sure, if you have the knack for something you do have a “gift”.

Watch Rao, He Has a Knack
Rao has the knack for making entertaining hand shadows. Watch this short video.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Wait until tonight, then look back and see how wonderful this day was.

Quote of the Day
Many an opportunity is lost because a man
is out looking for four-leaf clovers.
~Author Unknown


They say the 4 leaves of the clover represent
Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck.

Joke of the Day

A photographer for a national news magazine was assigned to get photos of a big forest fire. Smoke at the scene was too thick to get any good shots, so he frantically called his home office to hire a plane. "It will be waiting for you at the airport!" he was assured by his editor.

As soon as he got to the small, rural airport, sure enough, a plane was warming up near the runway. He jumped in with his equipment and yelled, "Let's go! Let's go!"

The pilot swung the plane into the wind and soon they were in the air. "Fly over the north side of the fire," said the photographer, "and make three or four low level passes."

"Why?" asked the pilot.

"Because I'm going to take pictures! I'm a photographer, and photographers take pictures!" said the photographer with great exasperation and impatience.

After a long pause the pilot said, "You mean you're not my instructor?"
