Many years ago I actually got to take time off to go fishin’. The story went like this. “Hi Adrian I’m here to pick up my bait”.   “Clifford, what are you going to do with this bait?” “What kind of question is that Adrian, what do you think I’m gonna do with it, eat it?” “Well I don’t know, are you sure you really want this bait?” Of course I [...]

Most of us guy’s are pretty dumb sometimes, especially when we are young men. I guess as we begin to age we develop a real understanding that our parents weren’t so stupid after all! I don’t care how many times a young man is told not to do something, he’s going to do it anyway just because he was told not to do it! Here’s a few stories. My n [...]

I have always said that a lot of my stories about my life are the kinds of things that a guy would never tell his parents when he was young. The trouble I got into, the places I went that I shouldn’t have gone and all the other stuff that you don’t divulge until your parents are too old to chase you down and give you a spanking. It has recent [...]

There it hangs. I have stared at it for many weeks now. It is there in its place appointed by some unknown person from the past. It knows it’s functions well. It has stayed in the same location for over a month and has not moved on it’s own since inception. It remains very functional everyday and it is relatively a very simple object. Sleek a [...]

This menu board is from Isbells, circa 1960-1970. Note the most expensive item on the menu is a shrimp basket for $1.35… Those were the days! I have always tried to tell my children that everything we do in life can have an impact on others. Somewhere, somehow the chain that connects all families can be hurt or be helped by the actions [...]

I have no idea why blonde jokes are so funny, but they are. I am sure that just as many red heads, brunettes and other color haired women can be just about as funny as blondes. The only problem with that however is nowadays you really don’t know what the natural color is any longer with all the pinks, fire truck reds, coal black and pur [...]

If you don’t enjoy hunting stories then don’t read this story! My friend Ali is from another country. His ways and customs are different then mine but he and I have developed a similar interest in several areas. One of them is hunting. I took Ali to my ranch to hunt with me. The trip started out by him firing my gun into the air in the middle [...]

If you don’t enjoy hunting then don’t read this story! I have a number of friends from different parts of the world. When I moved my work out of Hufsmith and into the big city of Tomball I began to meet people that had not had the privilege of doing some of the things I had done and visa versa. Ali Abdullah W. is a friend I met about twenty y [...]
