If only we could do something about the million Jose(ph)s.
I might have sown a very small handful of wild oats before I married, but a million?

Flattered though I might be, I'm definitely no Genghis Khan.

Re: A Confession

Today was my twenty-fifth wedding anniversary.

At first it felt a bit odd spending it with my wife instead of Mitch.

But then the pup got sick, and all was right as rain.

Re: A Confession

It’s a combo VCR/DVD player. Glacial-edge technology, but it still does what it was built to do, and we use it on a regular basis. Trixie hates being in her crate, and for the past sixty hours we’ve had no sleep. She yelps and screams from sunset to sunrise, with the volume and terror of a creature ...

Re: A Confession

My wife likes to keep an assortment of snacks next to my la-z-boy recliner. Sometimes she’ll put them out in the container they came in, but other times she’ll put them into smaller containers in order to ration them. Like I have no self control. 1.JPG Anyway, two weeks back I came home from work a...

Re: Why do people wear chest waders in the middle of summer?

I think they fear wet waders (such as myself) who sometimes (more so these days) piss in the river upstream of where they are wading. Or perhaps they've convinced themselves that a uniform consisting of waders, a fedora, and a vest with lots of tiny pockets is de rigueur for anyone who's truly serio...

Re: Any help in NoCal?

I’m guessing this has very little to do with the pan. I can't say that's true, because it was my brother's pan, and he didn't offer to leave it behind. Those who were still around asked if they could borrow it, because they knew that once Cornholio, my brother and I left camp they wouldn't have a p...

Is the scatter gun for snakes or bears?
Both. It's pretty versatile. The key is using the right ammo for the right quarry.

Re: A Confession

I invited Cornholio to join me up at the Old Man's place in Mendocino this past weekend. I promised him two days of hunting, fishing, and relaxation. When he arrived I said, "Remember all of that fun stuff I said we'd do? Well, we've got a broker sewer pipe between the house and the septic tank. I ...
