Fess Parker

Fess Parker died today; died at 85 and on his wife's 84th birthday.
Damn, we lost both Davey Crockett and Dan'l Boone in one fell swoop.
I grew up with Dan'l and Mingo, even wore a coonskin cap until the 3rd graders beat my ass and took it away.
For a minute anyway, until I went home and got my Pop's German Shepherd and took it back.
Fess, you're gonna be missed.
"Daniel Boone was a man,
Yes, a real man....."

CharlieGoddammit on a howl

When I first got CharlieGoddammit I thought he was half Shepherd and half Chow because the roof of his mouth was black and his tail had a curl and a half, but when Pops seen him he said he was half Husky.
He checked his dewclaws and told me that a Husky's is connected by solid muscle while a domesticated dog's is connected by thin tendon. Then he asked me if he howled.
When I got him home later that night I gave him a couple of coyote huffs and sure enough, that motherfucker started howling. Since then every night we've had howling contests with the wager being a beer. So far I'm down a 12 pack.
See for yourself.

Now ain't that shit funny as hell?

What can I say?

Hey, I know I haven't been posting this week but please bear with me.
I've got a few things going on in my life - a couple that I can't really talk about and a new fucking dog that has been taking up a lot of my time trying to tame down. That past week has been taken up by one thing or another, I haven't even had time to eat a decent supper all week, much less get on the computer. It's 10:15 PM now and I get up at 4:15 AM if that tells you anything.
Hopefully everything (except CharlieGoddammit) will be resolved or at least thought out by Friday.
I'll post a bunch on Saturday, I promise.
Thanks for your patience.

And a Happy Monday to you!

Thanks, Rick.

How about we mind our own business???

JERUSALEM – Israeli media reported Monday that the U.S. is pressing Israel to scrap a contentious east Jerusalem building project whose approval has touched off the most serious diplomatic feud with Washington in years.

Top U.S. officials have lined up in recent days to condemn the Israeli plan to build 1,600 apartments in east Jerusalem, the sector of the holy city that the Palestinians claim for their future capital.

The project caused a storm in Washington because it was announced during Vice President Joe Biden's visit to the region last week, badly embarrassing the U.S. and complicating its efforts to restart Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking. The Palestinians immediately threatened not to join upcoming U.S.-brokered talks meant to jumpstart negotiations after a 14-month breakdown.

Maybe it's time to cut the bullshit and deal with this ourselves?

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico – Suspected drug gang hit men separately ambushed two cars carrying families with ties to the U.S. consulate in this violent border city, killing an American couple and a Mexican man. Three young children survived, although two suffered wounds.
The slayings came amid a surge in bloodshed along Mexico's border with Texas and drew condemnation from the White House. Mexico's president expressed outrage and promised a fast investigation to find those responsible.

When the Narco gangs start assassinating American Citizens, they've gone too far. This isn't the first time it's happened but maybe it's time to quit fucking around. We know the Mexican Government isn't going to do a shitting thing about it....

Nice BAT!!!!

Now this is a nice BAT. He reacts the same way I do when I catch an exceptional fish, all shaky and shit.

For the uninformed, a BAT is a Big Ass Trout.

Why does my tent smell funny?

-Thanks, Tom!

My weekend so far

I had a rather uneventful day yesterday. Went to the store and ran errands, then came home and worked with CharlieGoddammit to calm him down. I think his biggest problem is that he's been thrown in a backyard and never had much human interaction. He's smarter than hell and eager to learn.
He's coming along a lot better than I thought he would after only 2 days.
About 7 I cracked open a beer, poured one for the dog and settled in to watch Fox network to see what the fucking liberals were up to.
We ended up drinking about an 18 pack between the 2 of us but for some reason I couldn't even catch a buzz. I finally gave up about 1 and went to bed myself.
About 3 in the morning I woke up to find the dog doing unspeakable things to my pillow, things that I hadn't even done. Things that would probably get you jailed in every state but Kalifornia and Oklahoma. Things that made me glad that he had the decency to pull the pillow from under my head and off the bed first.
Today's not going to be a whole lot different. I'm going to work some more with the dog, then at 3 go to my folks' house for my Pop's 70th birthday, then go shopping for a new pillow.

Public Service Announcement


The term "Nigger Rigged" is absolutely no longer acceptable.
You will now refer to it as a "Presidential Solution."

Thank You,
The United States Government

Obama in his cradle

According to White House officials, this is proof that Obama was born in the US.


Bacon. Mmmm, Bacon.....

Bacon wrapped tofu for you vegetarians.

Thanks, VC
