All is Well

No Blog For a Few Days
IMG_0778I need a rest, so I will not have a blog for a few days. I’ll try to get back to writing a little something toward the week’s end.

I’m okay. Just need a little rest from writing my blog.

You all take care. I’ll be back soon.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
When you feel the pressure,
you should take some time off to rest.

Joke of the Day

A redneck with a bucket full of live fish was approached recently by a game warden in Central Mississippi as he started to drive his boat away from a lake.

The game warden asked the man, "May I see your fishing license please?"

"Naw, sir," replied the redneck. "I don't need none of them there papers. These here are my pet fish."

"Pet fish??"

"Yep. Once a week, I bring these here fish o'mine down to the lake and let 'em swim 'round for a while. Then when I whistle, they swim right back into my net and I take 'em home."

"'re under arrest."

The redneck said, "It's the truth, Mr. Gov'ment Man. I'll show ya! We do this all the time!"

"WE do, now, do WE?" smirked the warden. "PROVE it!"

The redneck released the fish into the lake and stood and waited. After a few minutes, the warden said, "Well?"

"Well, WHUT?" said the redneck.

The warden asked, "When are you going to call them back?"

"Call who back?"

"The FISH," replied the warden!

"Whut fish?" asked the redneck.

Word Power

There’s Power In Words
The words we use can change things. Just watch this short video to see the power in words.

Emphasis in the Spoken Word can change the complete meaning of a sentence. Consider the sentence below:

I never said he stole money.

That one sentence can have six different meaning depending on where you put the emphasis. Try it. Amazing, isn’t it.

Changing the punctuation can also change the meaning. Consider the following sentence, with two different punctuations.

  • A woman without her man is nothing.
  • A woman: without her, man is nothing.

Yes, words are powerful. Use them to be kind in all you say and write.


Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Yes indeed, words are powerful.
Be careful how you use them!

Joke of the Day

A farm boy accidentally overturned his wagonload of corn. The farmer who lived nearby heard the noise and yelled over to the boy, "Hey Willis forget your troubles. Come in and visit with us. I'll help you get the wagon up later."

"That's mighty nice of you," Willis answered, "but I don't think Pa would like me to."

"Aw come on boy," the farmer insisted.

"Well okay," the boy finally agreed, and added, "but Pa won't like it."

After a hearty dinner, Willis thanked his host. "I feel a lot better now, but I know Pa is going to be real upset."

"Don't be foolish!" the neighbor said with a smile. "By the way, where is he?"

"Under the wagon."

Test Yourself for Idiocy

A good friend sent me the following test to frustrate me. I thought I would share it with you. You might want to copy it and email it to your “smart” friends to frustrate them.

Test for Idiocy
Below are  four (4) questions and a bonus question.
You have  to answer them instantly. You  can't take your time, answer all of them immediately. OK?

But don’t cheat. Read only the question and get the answer, then scroll on down to check your answer. Let's  find out just how clever you really are....
Ready? GO!!!

First  Question:

You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?

If you  answered that you are first, then you  are absolutely wrong! If you  overtake the second person,
you take  his place, so you are second!

Try not to mess up next time. Now answer the second  question, but don't take as much time  as you took for the first one, OK ?

Second  Question:

If you  overtake the last person, then you are...?

If you  answered that you are second to last, then you  are wrong again. Tell me,  how can you overtake the LAST Person?

You're not very good at this, are you?

Third Question:
Very tricky arithmetic! Note:  This must be done in your head only. Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator.
Try it.

Take 1000 and add 40 to it.. Now add another 1000 . Now add 30. Add  another 1000. Now add 20 . Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What is the total?


Did you  get 5000? The correct  answer is actually 4100.

If you don't believe  it, check it with a calculator!
Today is definitely  not your day, is it?
Maybe you'll get the  last question right......Maybe.

Fourth Question:

Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4.  Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?


Did you Answer Nunu?  NO! Of  course it isn't.
Her name is Mary. Read the question again!

Okay, now the bonus  round: 


A mute person goes into  a shop and wants to buy a toothbrush. By  imitating the action of brushing his teeth he successfully expresses himself to  the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.

Next, a blind man comes  into the shop who wants to buy a pair of sunglasses; how does  HE indicate what he wants?


He just has to open his mouth and ask... It's really very simple. He’s only blind, not mute.


Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Laugh a little. Lighten up.
Enjoy the simple things in life.
We tread this road but once.

Joke of the Day

A noted heart surgeon was having a formal party. Shortly before the guests were to begin arriving he was told that all the bathrooms were backed up and not flushing.

Quickly he called a 24 hour plumber listed in the phone book.

The plumber arrived quickly and within 15 minutes told the surgeon that all was well.

He gave his bill to the heart surgeon and the surgeon exclaimed, "$900! You were only here 15 minutes! I'm a heart surgeon and even I can't charge that much"!

The plumber quietly replied, “Neither could I when I was a heart surgeon".

A Sad Story from a dumb friend…

iPhoneIt all began with an iPhone... November was when my son Robert celebrated his 30th birthday, and I got him an iPhone. He just loved it. Who wouldn't?

iPadI celebrated my birthday in January, and my wife Joan made me very happy when she  bought me an iPad.

ipodtouchMy daughter,Suzanne`s birthday was in May so I got her an iPod Touch.

My wife Joan celebrated her birthday in December so I got her an iRon. iRon

It was around then that the fight started...... What my wife failed to recognize is that the iRon can be integrated into the home network with the iWash, iCook and iClean. This inevitably activates the iNag reminder service.

Let’s Play Ball

The Summer Games
IMG_0753Kara, my youngest granddaughter, is playing 2 sports at the present time: softball and volleyball. She sometimes has a game in each sport on the same day. Just last week we went to see the softball game in the afternoon, and a volleyball game that evening. The picture shows her in her school uniform.

We think she will take tennis lessons again this summer. There may be more sports activities to keep her active. We’ll find out later.

Zachary, my grandson, on the other had has not committed to summer sports. He has said he wants to play basketball. We’re hoping he will take tennis lessons, and maybe go to a basketball camp. We’ll see.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
I’m glad to see young people get outside and play. The air is refreshing and the exercise is healthy.
I remember when I was growing up, that we played constantly during the summer days. We would invent games, and do all sorts of things like: play softball, have a track meet, fly kites, wrestle, etc. Mom would have to call us  to come in for supper and the night.

The older you are and the longer you have been married, the funnier this is…

The wife and I were sitting around the breakfast table one lazy Sunday morning.

I said to her, "If I were to die suddenly, I want you to immediately sell all my stuff."

"Now, why would you want me to do something like that?" she asked.

"I figure that you would eventually remarry and I don't want some other big dummy using my stuff."

She looked at me and said: "What makes you think I'd marry another big dummy?"

Information or Misinformation Highway

The Internet
I get lots of emails that look “fishy” and they are not coming from my fishing friends. Sometimes I check them out with Often I don’t take the time, and trash them.

A lot of the emails involve our president and include flat out lies about him. That’s why I was glad to see Bill O’Reilly address this. You should watch the following video, “Separating Fact from Myth Regarding President Obama. I think you will be surprised.

The Magic Green Hat
(This probably works best down in TX)

GreenHatThe other day I needed to go to the emergency room. Not wanting to sit there for 4 hours, I put on my MAGIC GREEN HAT. When I went into the E.R., I noticed that 3/4 of the people got up and left.

I guess they decided that they weren't that sick after all. Cut at least 3 hours off my waiting time.

It also works at DMV. It saved me 5 hours.

At the Laundromat, three minutes after entering, I had my choice of any machine, most still running.

But...don't try it at McDonald's. The whole crew got up and left and l never got my order!

What, me worry?

I remember a saying about worry that I heard first when I was young. It went something like this, “Worry is like a rocking chair… it keeps you busy, but doesn’t take you anywhere.”

Mad30I also remember the MAD magazines I used to like in my early days, and Alfred E. Newman, saying “What, me worry?”

If you happen to be a chronic worrier, here’s something I found the other day that may help you.

Two Days We Should Not Worry
There are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.

One of these days is Yesterday with all its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.

Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday.

We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is gone forever.

The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow with all its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise and its poor performance; Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.

Tomorrow's sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise. Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow, for it is yet to be born.

This leaves only one day, Today. Any person can fight the battle of just one day. It is when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities Yesterday and Tomorrow that we break down.

It is not the experience of Today that drives a person mad, it is the remorse or bitterness of something which happened Yesterday and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.

Let us, therefore, Live but one day at a time.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
More advice about worry:
1) Define exactly what you are worrying about.
2) Determine if you can do anything about it.
3) If so, do what you can do.
4) If not, pray and ask God to help and leave it in his hands.
5) Sleep well.

Enough is as good as a feast.

The following video is by BBC, and it shows an example of some work being done in India so the people there will not be duped by those saying they have powers and call them selves “man gods”.

Fishing Results from Yesterday
We had 4 people in the boat yesterday: Chuck, Doug B, Doug S, and myself. Chuck (from Washington State) is visiting Doug B. We wanted to introduce him to Tennessee crappie fishing by trolling with 16 rods. We had a good day, bring home 23 big crappie. We also caught 7 crappie that were too small and 8 white bass. The stringer is all crappie. Here’s a few pictures:

The Easter Rabbit?

Checking Things Out
IMG_4041I think it was the Easter Bunny that was in my front yard the other day. I’m just guessing that he was looking around and checking things out. Maybe where to hide the eggs, or looking for potential problems like dogs. I hope he brings me a chocolate rabbit!

Fishing Today
I hope to be on Douglas Lake again today. And hope the lake is in better condition for fishing. Last week we had to deal with a lot of floating debris on the lake. Hoping the winds have moved it aside.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
I have advice today. There are two things we need to make sure we have in our live. One is a hobby. The second is some physical exercise.
They are good for you.
Find something you enjoy doing and do it for relaxation and enjoyment. You’ll live longer and enjoy the days you live.

Great Story from a Great Coach

Also A Great Life Lesson
Bear_BryantAt a Touchdown Club meeting many years before his death, Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant told the following story:

I had just been named the new head coach at Alabama and was off in my old car down in South Alabama recruiting a prospect who was supposed to have been a pretty good player and I was havin' trouble finding the place. Getting hungry I spied an old cinder block building with a small sign out front that simply said "Restaurant."

I pull up, go in and every head in the place turns to stare at me. Seems I'm the only white fella in the place. But the food smelled good so I skip a table and go up to a cement bar and sit. A big ole man in a tee shirt and cap comes over and says, "What do you need?" I told him I needed lunch and what did they have today? He says, "You probably won't like it here, today we're having chitlins, collared greens and black eyed peas with cornbread. I'll bet you don't even know what chitlins (small intestines of hogs prepared as food in the deep South) are, do you?" I looked him square in the eye and said, "I'm from Arkansas , I've probably eaten a mile of them. Sounds like I'm in the right place." They all smiled as he left to serve me up a big plate. When he comes back he says, "You ain't from around here then?"

I explain I'm the new football coach up in Tuscaloosa at the University and I'm here to find whatever that boy's name was and he says, yeah I've heard of him, he's supposed to be pretty good. And he gives me directions to the school so I can meet him and his coach.

As I'm paying up to leave, I remember my manners and leave a tip, not too big to be flashy, but a good one and he told me lunch was on him, but I told him for a lunch that good, I felt I should pay.

The big man asked me if I had a photograph or something he could hang up to show I'd been there. I was so new that I didn't have any yet. It really wasn't that big a thing back then to be asked for, but I took a napkin and wrote his name and address on it and told him I'd get him one.

I met the kid I was lookin' for later that afternoon and I don't remember his name, but do remember I didn't think much of him when I met him. I had wasted a day, or so I thought.

When I got back to Tuscaloosa late that night, I took that napkin from my shirt pocket and put it under my keys so I wouldn't forget it. Back then I was excited that anybody would want a picture of me. The next day we found a picture and I wrote on it, "Thanks for the best lunch I've ever had."

Now let's go a whole buncha years down the road. Now we have black players at Alabama and I'm back down in that part of the country scouting an offensive lineman we sure needed. Y'all remember, (and I forget the name, but it's not important to the story), well anyway, he's got two friends going to Auburn and he tells me he's got his heart set on Auburn too, so I leave empty handed and go on see some others while I'm down there.

Two days later, I'm in my office in Tuscaloosa and the phone rings and it's this kid who just turned me down, and he says, "Coach, do you still want me at Alabama ?" And I said, "Yes I sure do." And he says OK, he'll come. And I say, "Well son, what changed your mind?" And he said, "When my grandpa found out that I had a chance to play for you and said no, he pitched a fit and told me I wasn't going nowhere but Alabama, and wasn't playing for nobody but you. He thinks a lot of you and has ever since y'all met." Well, I didn't know his granddad from Adam's housecat so I asked him who his granddaddy was and he said, "You probably don't remember him, but you ate in his restaurant your first year at Alabama and you sent him a picture that he's had hung in that place ever since. That picture's his pride and joy and he still tells everybody about the day that Bear Bryant came in and had chitlins with him."

"My grandpa said that when you left there, he never expected you to remember him or to send him that picture, but you kept your word to him, and to Grandpa, that's everything. He said you could teach me more than football and I had to play for a man like you, so I guess I'm going to."

I was floored. But I learned that the lessons my mama taught me were always right. It don't cost nuthin' to be nice. It don't cost nuthin' to do the right thing most of the time, and it costs a lot to lose your good name by breakin' your word to someone.
When I went back to sign that boy, I looked up his Grandpa and he's still running that place, but it looks a lot better now; and he didn't have chitlins that day, but he had some ribs that woulda made Dreamland proud and I made sure I posed for a lot of pictures; and don't think I didn't leave some new ones for him, too, along with a signed football.

I made it clear to all my assistants to keep this story and these lessons in mind when they're out on the road. If you remember anything else from me, remember this. It really doesn't cost anything to be nice, and the rewards can be unimaginable.

A good friend sent me the above. It’s a good story and a good lesson for all of us.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
It does not cost one red cent to be nice.
So be.

Quote of the Day
I expect to pass through the world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness I can show to any creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it, for I shall not pass this way again.

Fishing Worms

How Do You Get Them?
I usually go to a bait store when I need some fishing worms. I learned about a new way to get them. It’s called “worm grunting”. Watch the video. They drive a wooden stake in the ground, and then run a flat iron rod across the top of the stake, and worms start coming up out of the ground.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:

A Good Poem

If, If, if… 
“If” is a word we say, often when we look back in time. Here a nice little poem with the word “if” in the title. Something for us to think about.

If I Had my Child To Raise Over Again

If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.

I'd finger paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.

I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I would care to know less and know to care more.

I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.

I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars,
I'd do more hugging and less tugging.

I'd see the oak tree in the acorn more often,
I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.

I'd model less about the love of power,
And more about the power of love.

--Diane Loomans

Fishing Results

Douglas Lake 
Doug, Ralph, and I had a fun day on Douglas Lake yesterday. We didn’t catch a lot of fish, but it sure was nice to get in the sunshine and enjoy the waves.

Here’s one of blue Herons that inhabit the area. This one was sitting on a floating log. IMG_0707
The lake had risen several feet in the past 24 hours, which hurt the fishing and made navigation difficult. IMG_0712
Doug holds 2 of the large crappie we caught. IMG_0739
Ralph holds the final stringer of nine fish: 5 big crappie, 3 white bass, and 1 catfish. IMG_0742

Joke of the Day

DEA officer stops at a ranch in Texas, and talks with an old rancher. He tells the rancher, "I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs." The rancher says, "Okay , but don't go in that field over there," as he points out the location.

The DEA officer verbally explodes saying, " Mister,  I have the authority of the Federal Government with me."  Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removes his badge and proudly displays it to the rancher.  "See this badge?  This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish.... On any land.  No questions asked or answers given.  Have I made myself clear?  Do you understand? "
