Fishing Show

Knoxville, TN
This week they are having the Fishing Show in Knoxville, Tennessee. I was not able to go last year, so I am planning to go down tomorrow and take a look of what they have to offer. Ralph is planning to go with me, and we hope Doug will be able to join us. As you know, Ralph and Doug are a couple of my fishing buddies.


P1060450Kevin’s Birthday
After Kara’s basketball game last night we joined Kevin and his family to celebrate Kevin’s birthday.

We had a Baskin’s Robbins Ice Cream Cake and it was delicious.

Here’s a picture of Kevin just before we sung Happy Birthday (—>)

Nationwide Insurance
I’m hoping to get my settlement from the robbery I had back in November soon. I talked the adjuster in Memphis a few days ago and he said the check was in the mail. It looks like I got a reasonably good settlement. It will not replace everything, but it will get me back in business.

I’ve got wish lists put together at Bass Pro, Cabela’s and Jann’s Netcraft. I am looking forward to working on my fishing gear for upcoming fishing season. Spring is just around the corner. I hope!

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Maybe the fishing show will cheer me up. I’m a little depressed. The doctor says I will need to stay on the Coumadin until May when they plan to do the next test on my leg for blood clots. He said this was because the my blood clots in the leg were extensive. This is more serious than I thought. I guess getting back to a normal life will be on hold for a while longer.

Joke of the Day

A married man left for work early one Friday afternoon. Instead of going home, however, he squandered the weekend (and his paycheck) partying with the boys.

When he finally returned home on Sunday night, he ran into a barrage of epithets from his wife. After a couple of hours of nagging and berating, his wife asked, "How would you like it if you didn't see me for a couple of days?!?"

"That would suit me just fine!!" the man said.

Monday went by, and the man didn't see his wife. Tuesday and Wednesday went by with the same result. Come Thursday, the swelling went down a bit and he could see her a little, just out of the corner of his left eye.
