Today’s outdoor tidbits

Today we’ve got  several things: a word about the weather, a short fishing report and a followup to D’Arbonne’s spot on Duck Dynasty. First,  the weather: It has been unseasonably cool this week, but it should get hot again tomorrow. Don’t like the weather here? How about these extremes? The world’s lowest temperature yesterday was … Continue reading

There’s treasure behind that green worm spit…

Way back when, my dad and one of his fishing partners, Tom Guthrie, didn’t share much in common. What they did share was the love of fishing, dad’s 12-foot aluminum boat and Mr. Tom’s catalpa tree. All my memories here are not favorable. I used to hate to “pick” catalpa worms. But I loved to … Continue reading

I had an excellent role model to follow. In case you never had the privilege of seeing it, the satire of childhood recollections … Continue reading

Unintended deceit

What is it? I know. I know…

A few weeks back, friend Joyce Neely of Tennessee posted a Facebook photo under the “What is it?” category. I knew immediately, but after a dozen or so way off answers from others, I had to post the right one. I knew what it was because I have strapped pairs of them on my parents … Continue reading
