A little nature fer Y'all.....
Although I didn't take this here photygraff, I have one very similar to it somewhere around the house. The misses and myself were up in Alaska and while riding a small skiff on the Inside Passage, had an Orca surface not to fer away and I managed to get a shot very much like this one, sunset and all.
Well Sir, this here be my new neighbor who's also a fisherman. This is a Northern Harrier (Marsh Hawk), and shortly after I snapped this here photygraff, he flew off and scarfed hisself a decent sized Walley right outta the Lake. Damn, there goes dinner!
** CLICK TO ENLARGE FOR MUCH MORE DETAIL**
Now Sir, I saw this here pikchur on AOL t'other day, and I guess the story behind it is that this couple was up in Canada and stopped by this lake to get a photygraff of themselves with the beautiful scenery behind them. They set the self timer, and the noise it was a makin caught the attention of this here curious squirrel. I guess its been one of the most viewed photo's on the net since! Thought Y'all might just get a kick outta it!
Ronald Reagan pronosticated and warned us of this in 1961...Socialized Medicine! & Casablanca.
The below video is about 10 minutes long, and is uncanny when it comes to Obama's Health Care Reform. He explains very clearly just how "Socialism" will come to be our form of Government in this country. If this is a topic that interests you (and it should), take a few moments of your valuable time and listen to this. I'm pretty sure you'll be amazed at the accuracy of what he said way back then.....
This is a true story, proving how fascinating the mind of a six year old is.
They think so logically.
A teacher was reading the story of the Three Little Pigs to her class.
She came to the part of the story where first pig was trying to gather the
building materials for his home. She read. 'And so the pig went up to the
man with the wheelbarrow full of straw and said: 'Pardon me sir, but
may I have some of that straw to build my house?'
The teacher paused then asked the class:
'And what do you think the man said?'
Little Vito raised his hand and said very matter-of-factly .....
'I think the man would have said -
"Well, I'll be fucked!! A talking pig!"
Gotta THANK "Chicago Charlie" fer that one..... _______________________________________
**Sigh** I guess we've all had our "Casablanca's" at one time or anuther in our lives....
The Philadelphia Eagles just signed this piece of living WHALE SHIT fer a year. Well Sir, if anyone reading this has ever owned and loved a dog, then y'all will understand when I say that not only will I never by a ticket to an Eagles game, I won't even watch them on TV until such time that he is no longer with them, and even then I won't watch them anymore, even if its a SuperBowl Game.
Now DON'T give me that; "He's paid his debt to society." Bullshit. He intentionally and with extreme cruelty killed dogs (and cats to help give the dogs a taste for blood before a fight). I'm not one of these PETA types by any stretch. I'm an avid hunter and fisherman, but when I hunt, I hunt with primitive muzzle-loading, one shot Civil War weapons on the animals turf. When fishing, much of it is "Catch & Release", except fer Walleyes, which are gladly eatin by my wife and myself.
WARNING:The followin photygraffs may be too intense fer young, and/or "liberal" viewers. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED, especially for this here first photygraff!!
Below are recent photygraffs of the "scary" alleged Swastika carryin "MOB" that Nancy Pelosi said had the AUDACITY to confront and challenge our elected representatives about Health Care Reform and other issues!
I threw the next two in just fer laff's....
...and finally, here be a 20 second video frum "Chicago Charlie" about what a perfect daughter is....
This came from a Marine's wife. It says it all..
I sat, as did millions of other Americans, and Watched as the government underwent a peaceful Transition of power a few months ago.
At first, I felt a swell of pride and patriotism while Barack Obama took his Oath of office. However, All that pride quickly vanished as I later watched 21 Marines, in full dress uniform with rifles, fire a 21-gun salute to the President.
It was then that I realized how far America's Military Had deteriorated.
But Firrrst, here be a little sumthin that my buddy Patrick sent me.....
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 night, 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 and 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 tall chick with a big ass and long legs who agrees with everything I say.'
Susan Gertson frum Eagle Lake, Texas done sent me this here short video about the smartest dog I ever seen......
Why y'all should teach yur Mother-In-Laws to knock first!!

....and finally, some real great advice frum Grandma....
My grandmother died in the 60's, but her birthday is coming up, and that always causes me to reminisce. The long walks we used to take to the store in town, the quarters she gave me for meaningless jobs like pulling weeds or washing the sidewalk . . .
Those gems were all good, but the one I remember most, the jewel in the crown of grand motherly advice, occurred when I was only about 13. We were sitting in a park having just finished collecting some 40 soda bottles for the deposit money on a beautiful spring day.
She told me that one day, I would find a wonderful woman and start my own family. 'And always remember this thing,' she said. 'Be sure you marry a woman with small hands.'
'How come, Grandma?' I asked her.
She answered in her soft Irish voice . 'Makes your dick look bigger.'
. . . .. . Kinda brings a tear to your eye, don't it?
...and my good buddy "The Chief" (who's take'n a sabatical frum bloggin fer awhile), also sends us this here news update....
FINALLY...THE $64,000 QUESTION WAS ASKED.... YESTERDAY ON "ABC-TV" (BETTER KNOWN AS THE ALL BARRACK CHANNEL) DURING THE "NETWORK SPECIAL ON HEALTH CARE".... OBAMA WAS ASKED:
"MR. PRESIDENT WILL YOU AND YOUR FAMILY GIVE UP YOUR CURRENT HEALTH CARE PROGRAM AND JOIN THE NEW 'UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE PROGRAM' THAT THE REST OF US WILL BE ON ????"..... (BET YOU ALREADY KNOW THE ANSWER)...
THERE WAS A STONEY SILENCE AS OBAMA IGNORED THE QUESTION AND CHOSE NOT TO ANSWER IT !!!...
IN ADDITION, A NUMBER OF SENATORS WERE ASKED T HE SAME QUESTION AND THERE RESPONSE WAS..."WE WILL THINK ABOUT IT."
AND THEY DID. IT WAS ANNOUNCED TODAY ON THE NEWS THAT THE "KENNEDY HEALTH CARE BILL" WAS WRITTEN INTO THE NEW HEALTH CARE REFORM INITIATIVE ENSURING THAT THAT CONGRESS WILL BE 100% EXEMPT !
SO, THIS GREAT NEW HEALTH CARE PLAN THAT IS GOOD FOR YOU AND I... IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR OBAMA, HIS FAMILY OR CONGRESS...?? WE (THE AMERICAN PUBLIC) NEED TO STOP THIS PROPOSED DEBACLE ASAP !!!!... THIS IS TOTALLY WRONG !!!!!
PERSONALLY, I CAN ONLY ACCEPT A UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE OVERHAUL THAT EXTENDS TO EVERYONE... NOT JUST US LOWLY CITIZENS... WHILE THE WASHINGTON "ELITE" KEEP RIGHT ON WITH THEIR GOLD-PLATED HEALTH CARE COVERAGES. _________________________________

Subject: Isn't that precious
Two informally dressed ladies happened to start up a conversation during an endless wait in the LAX airport.
The first lady was an arrogant California woman married to a wealthy man.
The second was a well mannered elderly woman from the South. When the conversation centered on whether they had any children, the California woman started by saying, "When my first child was born, my husband built a beautiful mansion for me."
The lady from the South commented, "Well, isn't that precious?"
The first woman continued, "When my second child was born, my husband bought me a beautiful Mercedes-Benz..
Again, the lady from the South commented, "Well, isn't that precious?"
The first woman continued boasting, "Then, when my third child was born, my husband bought me this exquisite diamond bracelet.
Yet again, the Southern lady commented, "Well, isn't that precious?"
The first woman then asked her companion, "What did your husband buy for you when you had your first child?"
"My husband sent me to charm school," declared the Southern lady.
"Charm school?" the first woman cried, "Oh, my God! What on earth for?"
The Southern lady responded, "Well for example, instead of saying "Who gives a shit?" I learned to say, "Well, isn't that precious"... _________________________________
...and I gotta give a big COOKSHACK THANKS to "Chicago Charlie" and Susan Gertson fer sending some of the stuff along to Cookie!!
Some PotPourri...A couple of UPDATE'S, and NEWSBUSTED!!
UPDATE: I'm presently listening and watching President Obama's "Town Hall Meeting" in New Hampshire, and I've already caught at least one lie, like the AARP being "on board" with the proposed Health Care Plan. Well Sir, last evening O'Reilly had a representative of the AARP who staunchly denied that the AARP was "on board" with the plan. Who's Lying?? The AARP or Obama.
UPDATE #2: According to Newscaster Charlie Gibson, the AARP strongly DENIES being on board with the Healthcare Reform Bill. Oh Well, must be Mr. Obama was simply "misinformed" by his people!
Hmmm, well at any rate, I couldn't help but notice that ALL the folks sittin behind him while he gave his speech were clapping and applauding at almost every opportunity. Could it be that the meeting was stacked with Obama supporters? Nahhh!
Right now a majority of the polls are showing that between 50 and 60% of Americans are against this reform bill, but who cares about that?
Rather than ramble on about this I'll leave you all with a famous quote by George Bernard Shaw;
"The Government that robs from Peter to pay Paul can always depend on Paul's support."
I think that says it all. Think about it!!
I'm a "Senior", so I'm very concerned!!
But first, we can now finally put the Obama Birth Certificate controversy to rest. He just released it to the media, so I guess that settles THAT!
Now, fer a little prognosticated wisdom that unfortunately appears to have come true!
"A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves." - Edward R... Murrow _______________________________________
A real GREAT golf story:
A father, son and grandfather went to the country club for their weekly round of golf.
Just as they reached the first tee, a beautiful young blonde woman carrying her bag of clubs approached them.
She explained that the member who brought her to the club for a round of golf had an emergency that called him away, and asked the trio whether she could join them.
Naturally, the guys all agreed.
Smiling, the blonde thanked them and said, "Look, fellows, I work in a topless bar as a dancer, so nothing shocks me anymore. If any of you want to smoke cigars, have a beer, bet, swear, tell off-color stories or do anything that you normally do when playing a round together, go ahead But I enjoy playing golf, and consider myself pretty good at it, so don't try to coach me on how to play my shots."
With that the guys agreed to relax and invited her to hit first.
All eyes were fastened on her shapely behind as she bent over to place her ball on the tee. She then took her driver and hit the ball 270 yards down the middle, right in front of the green.
The father's mouth was agape. "That was beautiful," he said.
The blonde put her driver away and said, "I really didn't get into it, and I faded it a little." After the three guys hit their drives and their second shots, the blonde took out an eight iron and lofted the ball within five feet of the pin.
The son said, "Damn, lady, you played that perfectly."
The blonde frowned and said, "It was a little weak, but even a soft seven would have been too much club. I've left a tricky little putt."
She then tapped in the five-footer for a birdie.
Having the honors, she hit first on the second hole, knocked the hell out of the ball, and it landed nearly 300 yards away, smack in the middle of the fairway.
For the rest of the round the statuesque blonde continued to amaze the guys, quietly and methodically shooting par or less on every hole.
When they arrived at the 18th green, the blonde was three under, and had a very nasty 12-foot putt on an undulating green for a par. She turned to the three guys and said, "I really want to thank you all for not acting like a bunch of chauvinists and telling me what club to use or how to play a shot, but I need this putt for a 69 and I'd really like to break 70 on this course....
...... If any one of you can tell me how to make par on this hole, I'll take him back to my apartment, pour some 35-year-old Single Malt Strathmill Scotch in him, fix him a steak dinner, and then show him a very good time for the rest of the night.."
The yuppie son jumped at the thought! He strolled across the green, carefully eyeing the line of the putt and finally said, "Honey, aim about 6 inches to the right of the hole and hit it firm. It will get over that little hump and break right into the cup."
The father knelt down and sighted the putt using his putter as a plumb, "Don't listen to the kid, darlin', you want to hit it softly 10 inches to the right and let it run left down that little hogback, so it falls into the cup."
The old gray-haired grandfather walked over to the blonde's ball, picked it up, handed it to her and said, "That's a gimme, sweetheart."
The blonde smiled and said, "Your car or mine?"
OLD AGE AND WISDOM WILL OVERCOME SKILL EVERY TIME!!! _______________________________________
A noted psychiatrist was a guest speaker at an academic function where Obama happened to appear. Obama took the opportunity to schmooze the good doctor a bit and asked him a question with which he was most at ease.
'Would you mind telling me, Doctor,' he asked, 'how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?'
'Nothing is easier,' he replied. 'You ask a simple question which anyone should answer with no trouble. If the person hesitates, that puts you on the track.'
'What sort of question?' asked Obama.
Well, you might ask, 'Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?''
Obama thought a moment, and then said with a nervous laugh,
'You wouldn't happen to have another example would you? I must confess I don't know much about history.' ___________________________________
OK...Time fer a little ...JERRY REED!! (and some history of Truck Convoys)
Turn yur SOUND ON and UP and enjoy!!
Now Sir...this here ain't old Jerry, but fer all you mother-truckers out there, here be CONVOY!!
Now Sir, some of Y'all out there don't recall why truckers started Convoy's t'begin with. Well Sir, back when there was a major gas shortage in the good old US of A (the 70's), laws were passed all across this here country to keep the speed limits at "a double nickel", that's 55 MPH to you. This was supposed to preserve gasoline. Truckers couldn't make much money at that speed, so they formed up small and large convoys and did whatever the hell speed they wanted to, and with so many trucks, the cops really couldn't stop em. Sooo, there be some history fer Y'all!
Hmmmmm.... Sumthin OLD is NEW (and needed) again!!
Well Sir, I went to one of our illustrious Representative's "Town Hall" meetin's over the weekend, and after it was over, it occurred to me that he shoulda brought one of these old instruments from the early 1800's with him.
