Wild hair

Have ya ever got a wild hair an' say ya gonna do something before ya give that wild hair some serious think'n?

For a few days I been think'n I need to go out an' buy me a new boat.  I got me this wild hair of a great big ol' 4 man raft....bout the size a US Navy aircraft carrier. 
I ain't say'n I ain't gonna go head and buy one, but when ya do some think'n bout it, that when ya realize it ain't a intelligent decision. For a bunch of reasons. First, where the hell I gonna put a big ol' boat when I ain't got hardly enough room for the little "bubba boat"? Then it gonna weigh twice as much as do the "bubba boat". Then I gonna have to buy me another motor with twice the horsepower what I got now. And a bigger and heavier battery. I'm think'n I probly aughter just pluck this wild hair out my head an' give the "bubba boat" a big ol' hug. What ya think???

Now let's talk bout that other wild hair, a bicycle. Yeah, the old Billy Bob surely could use some bicycle peddling exercise. Ok, now let's do some think'n bout that. "Where the hell ya gonna put a big ol' 26 inches bicycle Billy Bob"? Well shoot, I gonna put it on the back of "that jeep", that's where. That takes a special bike carrier what folds down to gain access to the "bubba boat" and associated gear what is in the back. Well I fount what I'm think'n is a purty darn nice bicycle for an old fart like me. It's kind of big, but I'm think'n I'll grow into it in no time flat.

I sit on that sucker and it feel good, light and comfortable....feet reach to the floor. Ain't gonna fall over like I do on them mountain bikes. I took off down the aisle and the nice man stop me an' says..."Whoa there cowboy, you can't ride no bicycle in K-Mart". Ok, so here's the deal. How I gonna put a hunnert horsepower 'lectric motor on that sucker? Bet ya Billy Bob figger it out.

Home alone today. Robert an' grandson Tim took off on a job way early this morn'n. "Now what ya gonna do Billy Bob"?

For Dizzy....

  2. Billy Bob, I've been thinking about getting me a bike. I thought the one you were looking at looked pretty good, until I saw a review on Amazon that said,"The bright pink wheels with the black frame is an eye catcher". Now if I was to buy this bike I would invest in a can of black spray paint for them wheels.

    1. This ain't really a crank forward like what I want, but at least the crank ain't right under the seat. Was also look'n for a lower frame, but shoot, with a hunnert horsepower motor it don't make no matter.

  5. Billy Bob,

    Go to Walmart and check out there electric bikes. They are not expensive and they work great! My 74 year-old brother bought one and he is having a blast driving it around. Enjoy the blog, thanks for sharing.

  8. I think talking about rafts and boats and bikes is much easier than getting them to work. Not like the old days where you bought something (and it was already assembled and ready to go) and it worked perfect the first time.
