 World’s Foremost Outfitters

This is one of my favorite places to shop online. I wish we had one of their retail stores in our area. That would be great. Maybe someday… Cabelas

I must tell you about a free gift that I received from Cabela’s a few days ago. The package was heavy! I opened it up and I found a book. A book? Well not just any old book, it was a hard bound catalog. I had never seen a hard bound catalog before. You probably can’t read the smaller print on the picture of the catalog book below, but it says:

Thank You – To A Very Special Customer

2010-02-07 16.15.26

What makes me a special customer? I think I know the answer. I’ve been replacing the fishing gear that I lost in the robbery I had last November. So when you place an order for around $700 it gets someone attention.

Thanks Cabela’s! You are one top notch company!

Joke of the Day

An old man lived alone in Ireland. He wanted to spade his potato garden, but it was very hard work.

His only son, who would have helped him, was in Long Kesh Prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his predicament.

Shortly, he received this reply, "For HEAVEN'S SAKE Dad, don't dig up that garden, that's where I buried the GUNS!"

At 4 A.M. the next morning, a dozen British soldiers showed up and dug up the entire garden, without finding any guns.

Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son telling him what happened, and asking him what to do next.

His son's reply was: "Now plant your potatoes, Dad; It's the best I could do from here."
