Some Interesting Things Have Occurred in Tennessee
But I was unaware of this one until a few days ago when one of my high school class mates sent me a link to this video about the Battle of Athens. This battle was a rebellion led by World War II veterans against a corrupt & tyrannical local government in 1946. I thought it was worth the 13 minutes viewing time, and you might enjoy it better by watching in full screen.
I’ve been working on my fishing tackle this week. Yesterday I rigged up 12 of my crappie rods that we use for trolling, and the 6 rods/reels we use when fishing for lake trout. This warm weather gives me a burst of new energy. I hope you are enjoying these days also.
Learn all you can from the mistakes of others.
You won't have time to make them all yourself.
Joke of the Day
This is the End of the Funny Tombstones:
John Penny's epitaph in the
Wimborne, England , cemetery:
Reader, if cash thou art in want of any,
Dig 6 feet deep and thou wilt find a Penny.
In a cemetery in Hartscombe, England :
On the 22nd of June,
Jonathan Fiddle went out of tune.
Anna Hopewell's grave in
Enosburg Falls, Vermont :
Here lies the body of our Anna,
Done to death by a banana.
It wasn't the fruit that laid her low,
But the skin of the thing that made her go.
On a grave from the 1880s in
Nantucket, Massachusetts :
Under the sod and under the trees,
Lies the body of Jonathan Pease.
He is not here, there's only the pod,
Pease shelled out and went to God.
In a cemetery in England :
Remember man, as you walk by,
As you are now, so once was I.
As I am now, so shall you be,
Remember this and follow me.
To which someone replied by writing on the tombstone:
To follow you I'll not consent,
Until I know which way you went.
