Favorite movie of all time "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World." I like good comedies and westerns, John Wayne

I like to listen to real country, western swing, and old 50's and 60's rock before the hippies took it over,,, like to play and sing southern gospel, and old country stuff.

Don't read,,,, well I can read, just don't wanna. If you read, check my blog out. I will try to keep something interesting on it. I do study the Bible though, but its not really a book, its the instruction manual for life.

Anything outdoors, fishing, pickin and grinnin, sports, humor,

Just to get through today.. That's plenty.

First, I am a Christian. I don't push my beliefs on others but believe Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. And I guess if anyone needs the grace and mercy of Jesus, it's me. I am conservative and support the Constitution and Bill of Rights. I am tall, bald and average build. I am married. My wife of thirteen years had a pulmonary embolism which resulted in a massive stroke in '04 at the age of 52. She spent seven months in the hospital and thirteen months in outpatient rehab and will always remain very disabled. I hurt my back in 2012 and had major surgery. I had to put her in a nursing home then. I go up there every day for about four hours. I live next door to my brother and take care of him too. He has congestive heart faillure. My hobbies are fishing and playing the guitar. I live on a lake and fish when I can. I play the guitar and bass guitar. I play the bass for Church and at the nursing home. I love the outdoors, sports, music, and good humor. (send me some funnies) Got four grand kids, and they are just wonderful, what can I say, just about perfect...only too far away. I live my life one day at a time. I'll worry about tomorrow, next week. Keeps me from going crazy. Crazier??? lol My motto is "Don't judge others, that's God's job. Live by faith and love with all your heart" That's about it.

Full Moon by Robert Hayden
No longer throne of a goddess to whom we pray,
no longer the bubble house of childhood's
tumbling Mother Goose man,The emphatic moon ascends--
the brilliant challenger of rocket experts,
the white hope of communications men.Some I love who are dead
were watchers of the moon and knew its lore;
planted seeds, trimmed their hair,Pierced their ears for gold hoop earrings
as it waxed or waned.
It shines tonight upon their graves.And burned in the garden of Gethsemane,
its light made holy by the dazzling tears
with which it mingled.And spread its radiance on the exile's path
of Him who was The Glorious One,
its light made holy by His holiness.Already a mooted goal and tomorrow perhaps
an arms base, a livid sector,
the full moon dominates the dark.

Take bread away from me, if you wish,
take air away, but
do not take from me your laughter.

Do not take away the rose,
the lance flower that you pluck,
the water that suddenly
bursts forth in joy,
the sudden wave
of silver born in you.

My struggle is harsh and I come back
with eyes tired
at times from having seen
the unchanging earth,
but when your laughter enters
it rises to the sky seeking me
and it opens for me all
the doors of life.

My love, in the darkest
hour your laughter
opens, and if suddenly
you see my blood staining
the stones of the street,
laugh, because your laughter
will be for my hands
like a fresh sword.

Next to the sea in the autumn,
your laughter must raise
its foamy cascade,
and in the spring, love,
I want your laughter like
the flower I was waiting for,
the blue flower, the rose
of my echoing country.

Laugh at the night,
at the day, at the moon,
laugh at the twisted
streets of the island,
laugh at this clumsy
boy who loves you,
but when I open
my eyes and close them,
when my steps go,
when my steps return,
deny me bread, air,
light, spring,
but never your laughter
for I would die.
Pablo Neruda

This is Matt's Buck he got Sunday. He was an 8 pointer but they could only count it as a 7 because one of them got broken while pulling him out of the woods. He's now at the processing place and his rack will be mounted.

A poem by Walt Whitman 

Do not let the day end without having grown a little,

without having been happy, without having increased your dreams.

Do not let yourself be overcome by discouragement.

Do not let anyone take away the right to express yourself, which is almost a must.

Do not give up the desire to make your life something extraordinary.

Do not stop believing that words and poetry yes they can change the world.

No matter what our essence is intact. We are beings full of passion. Life is desert and oasis.

It knocks us down, it hurts us, teaches us, It makes us protagonists of our own history. Although the wind blows

against, The powerful work continues: You can contribute with one stanza.

Never stop dreaming, because in dreams man is free.

Do not fall into the worst of errors: the silence. The majority lives in a scary silence.

Do not resign yourself Flees. "I send my screams through the roofs of this world", says the poet.

Appreciates the beauty of simple things. You can make beautiful poetry about little things,

but we can not row against ourselves.

That transforms life into hell. Enjoy the panic that causes you have life ahead.

Live it intensely, without mediocrity Think that the future is in you and face the task with pride and without fear. Learn from those who can teach you. The experiences of those who preceded us of our "dead poets", they help you walk through life Today's society is us: The "living poets". Do not let life happen to you without you living it.

 Sometimes life steps in and you simply must deal with it. How you see your life, your situation and circumstances that you cannot control or change, is determined by your point of view. Decide to be a positive, loving person.
Choose to act, instead of reacting, especially when surrounded by drama, chaos and stress. You are stronger and more courageous than you may feel at times. You have the power to find peace, acceptance and courage in the worst of circumstances. Take the ...high road and deal with it.
You have GREATNESS within you!~Les Brown The Elephant Rope As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not. He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were. Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life .... Leave you with this one thought.... Some of the most fascinating trees are those that have been shaped by leaning into to the wind....Have a wonderful sunday..Stay safe...Stay positive....Never give up! Angel Blessings and Love... You are Love... "Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose."

When I leave, I do not want you to cry, stay silent, without saying words,

and live memories, comfort the soul.

When I fall asleep, respect my dream, for something I fall asleep; I'm gone for something.

If you feel my absence, do not say anything, and almost in the air, with very fine step, look for me in my house, look for me in my books, look for me in my letters, and among my PC that I have written in a hurry.

Put on my shirts, my sweater, my coats and you can use all my shoes. I lend you my room, my pillow, my bed, and when it's cold, put on my scarves,

if it does not work, give it to your cousins who need You can drink the wine that I saved. Listen to that topic that I liked, use my perfume and water my plants.

If they cover my body, do not pity me, run into space, free your soul, music, singing and let the wind play with your face. Kiss the earth well, drink all the water and learn the living language of the birds.

If you miss me very much, disguise the act, look for me in the children, the coffee, the radio and in the place where I was hiding. Never utter the word death. Sometimes it is more sad to live forgotten than to die a thousand times and be remembered. When I fall asleep, do not bring me flowers to a bitter grave, scream with the strength of all your heart that the world is alive and continues its march. The lit flame is not going to turn off for the simple fact that it is no longer.

The people who "live" never die, they fall asleep at times, at small moments, and the infinite dream is just an excuse. When I leave, extend your hand, and you will be with me sealed in contact, and even if you do not see me, and even if you do not touch me, you will know that I will always be by your side. Then, one day, smiling and vibrant, you'll know that I came back so I would not leave Antoinette and wish you a blessed weekend.
