Nice Weather & Good News

Wonderful Weather
It almost felt like spring yesterday in Kingsport. The temperature hit a high of 55 degrees, and it was a great relief to the cold days we had been having.

Nationwide Came Through 
Even though I no longer have my insurance with Nationwide, they came through big-time and sent me a nice check. It will cover the replacement of most of fishing tackle I lost in our November robbery. Good for Nationwide Insurance!

I spend some time last night in sending off orders to 4 different companies for replacement tackle including rods, reels, line, lures, etc:

I feel much better now.

Fishing Show
Ralph and I are off to the Knoxville Fishing Show this morning to check out any good deals they might have. I am almost sure I will buy something… it’s automatic for me when I’m around fishing tackle.

Joke of the Day

A man and a little boy entered a barbershop together. After the man received the full treatment - shave, shampoo, manicure, haircut, etc. - he placed the boy in the chair.

"I'm goin' to buy a green tie to wear for the parade," he said. "I'll be back in a few minutes."

When the boy's haircut was completed and the man still hadn't returned, the barber said, "Looks like your daddy's forgotten all about you."

"That wasn't my daddy," said the boy. "He just walked up, took me by the hand and said, 'Come on, son, we're gonna get a free haircut!'"
