Caught my biggest crappie to date yesterday, 7.5 inches but they have to be 10 inches to keep.
A cow on the other side had interesting coloring.
I decided to try THE PIZZA COMPANY, went to visit Shawn while they were making as it takes them half an hour and she just lives a block away, then I picked it up and went back to her place to share it. Not impressed with it, I make much better pizza than that. Someone in this town needs to start a real fucking pizza place.

I have no idea wut dat iz about but it iz at Mullins Park.
I took the fire pit I made a few years ago and three boxes of wood but didn’t want to use my nice pot on a wood fire, dat is why I made cold coffee. It isn’t so bad, better than no coffee. I keep a few cans of Sterno in the truck at all times but didn’t bother using it either.
The first boat to launch on Wednesday was an older man and woman and it took them about 45 minutes to get it launched. He was a quite easy going guy and she was a hunched back woman with a big fucking mouth with a voice that really carried and she was ragging on his poor ass all the time. I was hoping he would drop her on the other side of the bayou so she could get lost in the woods.
After they finely got the boat in the water while she shouted directions ragging on his poor ass the motor wouldn’t start, surprisingly she didn’t have anything to say about that, I figure she could have ragged on his poor ass for an hour about that. But they wandered up stream with an electric trolling motor and I could still hear her a quarter mile away. Only thing I admired about her was that she could cuss like a fucking miner.
Just after they returned to trailer the boat another couple showed up from down stream and the guy helped the old guy get the boat on the trailer so they wouldn’t be waiting half an hour being as loud mouth was only good for shouting directions. So I went over to talk to the young lady in the other boat, she had caught a nice 14 inch crappie.

The way I devised to keep the umbrella from falling over in a breeze works good but I’m not as happy with an umbrella as I thought I would be. And I picked the wrong color, it collects a lot of heat and you sure don’t need more heat here. Maybe I’ll just go back to using a tarp, they work better.
Primitive out there, just a few garbage cans. No fire rings, shitters, etc. So I set up the portable throne room cuz a king needs a fine place to take a shit. I’ve been known too shit in the woods but at my age I prefer not to.
A fish cop showed up, no big deal, just checked my license, don’t they ever check to see if you have anything that isn’t legal? I’ve never been checked for that.

Camping was ok but not as nice as up north. Many call the north gods country, I guess that makes Texas the devils Siberia. It is just different here, pretty but harsh at the same time.
Quite there, was mostly alone, three boats launched the first day, just one the next day. Mostly just me, a big heron, a red cardinal and a redheaded woodpecker. Forgot coffee filters, the regulator for the camp stove was shot so I just made cold camp coffee.
Bobbie said she missed me, that she feels safer when I’m here, just cuz I have a gun it doesn’t mean I’m looking for an excuse to use it, or maybe I should be who she worries about. Besides, this neighborhood is pretty peaceful, I don’t even give our safety any thought. She gave me a bunch of DVD movies, must be a couple hundred of them.

Peace……. That’s what camping trips are for me, gets my mind in a better place.
I’m leaving today after getting everything loaded and will be off line for a couple of days, yea !!!
I’ll be at the place they call Thrifty, drop by for a little relaxation and bullshit, maybe I’ll have a fish or two for you.

Just pondering, about 23 years ago I converted an old tractor with a bad head to be air cooled but I’ve never tried it with a car engine and a computer controlled car likely would not like that.
The camper could use new carpeting but that won’t happen soon, if ever.
HATE SPEECH IS NOT FREE SPEECH….. Bullshit, I don’t charge a penny for it.
Are you disturbed? Hey, it’s the new normal.

Brought my homemade mini trailer to the apartment to clean up and set up again. Discovered I had an extra propane stove in the survival gear trailer so I’m good there.
Picked up an old notebook and discovered old notes in it I wrote on camping trips years ago on my strange spiritual journey. Like, “Don’t take politics too serious, it’s just another American racket.” “Spirits don’t adopt religions.”
Have you seen the movie SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT? When she kneed him in the balls that cracked me up. Pretty decent movie but I like chick flicks anyway.

They screwed up the Easter Egg Roll at the white house? So what, if I was president there wouldn’t be one at all.
Fuck Easter, it’s just a way to get some money from you.
How do you want your god? How about with some fucking fries?
Bullshit, there is no reason for Facefuck to give a shit about my memories.
I'm a study in contradictions, I hate wars but support kicking the asses of those that deserve it.

The motherfucker that broke into my camper took most everything but the bed so I need to gather some things together for camping next week. Need a one burner stove but Walfart is out of stock so don’t know where to get a cheap one here.
The crazy old ladies that live here called the cops on the crazy old lady here that steals plants (and other things) from them, like the cops gives a fuck about crazy old ladies that steal plants from crazy old ladies. She doesn’t take any of my stuff, I made it clear I’ll spank her ass if she does.
It is best to use things before ………

Most of you already know
I’m a good handyman/craftsman
With a good imagination
Mentioned the other day that I bought an umbrella and base.
Not much of a base, cement with a plastic cover, 13 inches square. A light wind will tip it over, so I pondered on it and what I have on hand and came up with a plan. Cut out a 17 inch square of plywood, rounded the corners, drilled a hole in the center of it, bingo, a little table for drinks and such. Had a piece of PVC of 1 ½” pipe to slip over the staff to hold the shelf at the right height.
Will add a rope at each corner going to the ground so I can use tent stakes to anchor it good, paint it, blah blah blah. The plastic chair had a broken armrest, I fixed that fucker also. I’m a handy bastard, yes?

According to the internut to make a roach killing paste, combine 3-teaspoons of boric acid with 3-teaspoons of sugar and 3-teaspoons of water. Mix the ingredients into a paste.
You can’t believe everything you see on the fucking internut, I made some of that paste and in a few hours it dries out and is rock hard. Don’t use water, just mix boric acid and sugar together and put some water near by.
Wish they would stop calling evolution a fucking theory, or at least call god a theory also.
I guess I have a liberal arts degree but us country hick redneck hillbillys just call it a well rounded education.
Hum, I thought catfish where those things I catch in the bayou. Bought a patio umbrella and stand, a breeze will blow it over but I have a fucking plan.
Kill one man and you're a murderer, kill a million and you're a conqueror.

So, fishing spot folks told me about is actually a place called Mullins Park. There was a few campers there, just didn’t take any pictures of them this time. Free camping, good deal, real nice there.
I don’t take fishing all that serious, just like to relax and enjoy being outside and enjoying nature. With like minded folks if they are around. I have one of those pop up canopy’s but getting to an age where I need one that is easier to put up, shade would be nice here. Home Depot has some decent table umbrellas for 60 bucks, may get one.
Had lunch at the Red Wagon yesterday, seems I’m now a bit of a hero for sticking up for them in a post on the rant page.

A few folks told me there was good fishing at Thrifty and I was given general directions. Go north on 279, just past the glass plant go left on the FM road, in a couple of miles go right at the old gas station and it is a couple of miles up that road. Like I’m supposed to know what the glass plant looks right. Anyway, found the place after a bit of wandering and the Thrifty settlement is no longer, I discovered the sign about it on the way back home.
The fishing place is actually a park, I’ll post about it tomorrow.
It’s Wednesday, one of the lunch specials at the Wagon will be liver and onions, may treat myself to lunch there today.
Life is uncertain, eat dessert first.

While wandering around a bit lost on Saturday I decided to check out Grosvenor, not much there, just a church, like many small settlements of the past it is now just a part of Texas history, never was very big. Pretty out there this time of year and I saw some wild turkeys.
I owned an old DeSoto when I was stationed in Alaska, got it for 50 bucks, needed some work, nothing really special about them, a tic below a Chrysler and a tic above a Plymouth. Had a fluid clutch in it but I switched it and the tranny out for a standard setup. It was good enough for the girls I went out with. Well, only went out with one when there, she became my first wife.
Quote of the day: “I shall seek guidance from my superiors.” Na, fuck them.. LOL

A word from your most memorable nobody…..
It is my humble fucking opinion that we should be able to ride our mowers anywhere in town we need to go. But I would suggest a top speed of 25 MPH. My mower is just 10 HP but 25 MPH would be a piece of cake for it with a pulley change.
Have noticed something since moving to Texas, the highways here get pretty slick during rains, more so than where I’m from. I fish tailed on a corner yesterday and I was only going about 25 MPH.
Mine eyes has seen the glory of the coming of the lord, he comes squealing around the corner in his pink and yeller Ford. Glory glory what a hell of a way to go, his rod is rolling on…… LOL

I had things to do yesterday so like any respectable bum I went fishing instead. Caught a nice Drum but don’t know anything about them and fishing regulations are written to confuse the fuck out of me so I released it. But someday I may try eating one.
These warm water bass are okay, not great but plenty of meat on them, one or two a year is okay, I’m not good with a fillet knife so I de-scale them, I like the skin anyway.
Being a runner up for the most klutzy fisherman in Texas the damn wind blew my lawn chair into the bayou so I had to fish it out also.
