HEY.....Billy Bob is in Del Rio

Well, here I are. Still in Del Rio, Texas if'n ya didn't already know. I been catch'n up fish ya know. Bunches of 'em. Then I been hav'n problems with this an' that.

Speak'n of batteries, I were down to the WIFI place the other day think'n I was gonna make a blog post. Had the computer charger thingy plug into the inverter what gets it's power from the battery in "that jeep". Ya see, the computer battery ain't no good....go dead in 15 minutes. That when I hear this "warning buzzer"thingy go'n off. What the hell??? The "that jeep" battery is slap dead. Won't start the car. Won't turn on the lights. Won't do nuttin. Now I'm stuck along side the road with a dead battery an' Sadie Mae wants to go home. I says to myself...."ya think that "bubba boat" battery will crank up the engine"??? I hooks it up with jumper cables and WALLA...."that jeep" come to life. Made a straight shot to the local Autozone an' get the battery and alternator check out. The guy say they both OK. Ha, what does he know?

Billy Bob don't got much confidence in these parts sell'n people so back at "da house", he do some investigat'n on his own. Check'n voltages an' stuff like that. "Take it to Walmart Billy Bob. It's a Walmart battery and it's still in warranty". That what I did. They put a big ole machine on my battery and afore I knows it, I got a brand spank'n new $120 (parts and labor) battery sit'n in "that jeep". Had they finished their tests, I would have knowed 100% for sure if'n the battery was bad or not. But that didn't happen. They just give me a new battery to get rid of me....I betcha.

Ok, speak'n of WIFI and internet connections, I been do'n pretty good without both. Although I would have like to watch the news and see who the next presidet was. Didn't find out until 2 days later when I call old "pesky neighbor" Wayne. Damn!!!!

I come this close >< to pull'n out of here yesterday morn'n. The wind was blow'n up a storm....bout 15/20 mile a hour, or something like that. Too windy to go fish'n, so me an' Sadie Mae took a ride. All over the place. Fount 2 more perfect fish'n places way up the road a piece, but ya gotta climb down the side a big ol' cliff to get there. Old Billy Bob is get'n to be quite the mountain goat here in Del Rio.

Sides all that, I been lay'n back enjoy'n all the quiet, keep'n a watchful eye out for wild critters, an' toss'n fish'n stuff in the water. Speak'n of critters, how bout I go buy me a critter cam?

In case anyone is wonder'n, I done catched me up so many fish they all know me by name.
