President who?

I remember back a few years ago when George Washington's birthday was celebrated as a holiday. Then someone comes along and "deletes" old George in all his glory for just Presidents Day. Well there is some presidents that I just ain't gonna celebrate no matter what the government says so.

Ok, no I didn't catch up no fish yesterday. All I did was drive down to the lake and look at it. Bout the time I was get'n up the nerve to risk my life and limb in the "bubba boat", the wind come up and change any idea of fish'n right out my mind. But that didn't deter the OFM Barney from jump'n in the lake. He paddle his little pink kayak all over the place. Ok, it ain't really pink....it orange, bright orange.

This is the view from the end of the boat trailer parking area. Somewheres down there bout a quarter mile is a 38 foots motorhome like "Sally da house" with a boat trailer hook up to it. My question is, did he back that motorhome down the boat ramp? He got more nerve than sense in my book.

Today started out with cloudy skys and cool temps.....but it's nice as can be right now. Sun is coming out and it's up to bout 70 degs or so.....and just a itsy bitsy little breeze of bout 5 mph.

Oh yeah.....had visitors again this morn'n. Had to take photos through the dirty winder, but what the hell.
Them are pigs or peccary...better knowed in Texas as javelinas. You do know that they have tusks and will bite ya in a heartbeat....right?

Ok, ate me up some vittles (oatmeal) and it's bout time to go make the rounds. Maybe I'll have some exciting news to update about later on this afternoon. But don't bet a paycheck on it.


  1. Billy Bob quit feeding those javelinas, they are dangerous critters and could bite Sadie Mae.

    Hope you get to try out bubba boat today.

  2. Good news Billy Bob. I just read an article that said officially it's still Washington's birthday. Presidents day was invented by retailers to sell sheets and cars. I agree we can't be honoring all the folks that have held the job, some of them just haven't done a very good job.

  3. It is Washington's birthday by law.

    ** This holiday is designated as "Washington's Birthday" in section 6103(a) of title 5 of the United States Code, which is the law that specifies holidays for Federal employees. Though other institutions such as state and local governments and private businesses may use other names, it is our policy to always refer to holidays by the names designated in the law.


  4. Maybe that Motor Home you saw floats, but if it does, he would have launched it instead. Have you seen the ones that do float and have props and a swim platform? They look like they couldn't take rough water.

  5. Ohhhheeeeeeee! Them Javelina be some good eatin'!

    Used to know a feller who'd go to Texas each year on vacation and hunt them suckers with his Mexican buddy. They had a Javelina stand in the brush, just a few feet tall but high enough to keep the Javelina from chewin' off their ankles.

    When a herd of 'em came along, (I guess they baited 'em somehow,) they'd pop 'em off with .357 handguns. Shoot 3 or 4 of 'em and the rest of the herd would scatter.

    Then, they'd cook 'em up some special way but man, what a delicious meal! Always looked forward to him coming back and bringin' some o' that special Javelina b-b-q'd pork. Yum-mee!

  6. A bunch of them kept a rancher and his wife holed up with their dog, which had made them mad, for hours, one nite in their cattle trailer. Mean thangs. Same ranch that a 2 year old got lost, out all nite in Jan or Feb. Barely alive when he was found next morning. And the hogs nor coyotes got him!

  7. I love to pit my boat against some waves, except during launching and loading.

  8. Those bleep bleeping javelinas down there or wild hogs up here are real cute. That opinion quickly goes away when you try to plant a garden or flower bed. Especially if you have any taters or bulbs. A small herd can tear up half an acre in one night. Anybody want to shoot some of um, just head up here to East Texas. If you bag less than five per night,you ain't trying very hard. Sweet taters, any kind of melons attract them like beer joints attract red necks. Not uncommon to see herds of over 100 in one field.
