New Rod Holder

Using PVC Pipe
I just finished making a new rod holder that will hold a lot of my fishing rods and reels. This one will hold 20 fishing rods and reels.


A few years ago I made a different style rod holder out of PVC pipe as shown to the right. I decided to try a new design(above) so I could get more rods into less space. I don’t have plans for my new design, but you can go to one of my fishing pages to get plans for the old design. Click here.

Old Design


We are filled with sadness this morning
because we just learned that Lesley’s Dad,
Hal Ketron, passed away last night.

The Lord is our Shepherd.

We feel a deep loss, and our thoughts and prayers go out to Sue, Lesley, Julia and all the family.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge.
Let go of it and life will be better.

Too many people overvalue what they are not
and undervalue what they are.

Joke of the Day

A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him. The waitress asks them for their orders.

The man says, 'A hamburger, fries and a coke,' and turns to the ostrich, 'What's yours?'

'I'll have the same,' says the ostrich.

A short time later the waitress returns with the order 'That will be $9.40 please,' and the man reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact change for payment.

The next day, the man and the ostrich come again and the man says, 'A hamburger, fries and a coke.'

The ostrich says, 'I'll have the same.'

Again the man reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change.

This becomes routine until the two enter again. 'The usual?' asks the waitress.

'No, this is Friday so I will have a steak, baked potato and a salad,' says the man.

'Same,' says the ostrich.

Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, 'That will be $32.62.'

Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and places it on the table.

The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer. 'Excuse me, sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact change in your pocket every time?

'Well,' says the man, 'several years ago I was cleaning the attic I found an old lamp. When I rubbed it, a Genie appeared and offered me two wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money would always be there.'

'That's brilliant!' says the waitress. 'Most people would ask for a million dollars or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!'

'That's right. Whether it's a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there,' says the man..

The waitress asks, 'What's with the ostrich?'

The man sighs... pauses and answers, 'My second wish was for a chick with long legs and who agrees with everything I say.'

(Be careful what you wish for)

Let me first extend my condolences...loss of a loved one is always double-edged, Sad and Glad. Sad of your loss, glad that your loved one is with our Lord. Sometimes I feel jealous that my loved ones are in that glorious place before me...because of my selfishness, I am still here. God be with you and your loved ones during this celebratory time. Treasure the memories.
Now, about that pole rack...both are great. Are they tippy with just a few rods? Grand ideas., Oh clever one. Malcolm says it all.

cute joke...wish I could find one of those lamps

God Bless
