I miss my buddy!  We talked often and jousted here in fun and friendship.

 

 I was looking back at some old emails that I have archived and found this one from 2020 that he sent me!!

 

ENJOY!!!

 

 

The devil whispered to me, “I’m coming for you.”  I whispered back, “Bring pizza.” 

 

Having plans sounds like a good idea until you have to put on clothes and leave the house.

 

It’s weird being the same age as old people.

 

When I was a kid I wanted to be older…this is not what I expected.

 

Life is like a helicopter.  I don’t know how to operate a helicopter.

 

Chocolate is God’s way of telling us he likes us a little bit chubby.

 

It’s probably my age that tricks people into thinking I’m an adult.


 

Never sing in the shower!  Singing leads to dancing, dancing leads to slipping, and slipping leads to paramedics
seeing you naked.  So remember…Don’t sing!

 

If 2020 was a math word-problem:   If you’re going down a river at 2 MPH and your canoe loses a wheel, how much
pancake mix would you need to re-shingle your roof?

 

I see people about my age mountain climbing; I feel good getting my leg through my underwear without losing my
balance.

 

If you can’t think of a word say “I forgot the English word for it.”  That way people will think you’re bilingual
instead of an idiot.

 

I’m at a place in my life where errands are starting to count as going out.

 

Coronacoaster
 noun:  the ups and downs of a pandemic.  One day you’re loving your bubble, doing work outs, baking banana bread and going for long walks and the next you’re crying, drinking
gin for breakfast and missing people you don’t even like.

 

I’m at that age where my mind still thinks I’m 29, my humor suggests I’m 12, while my body mostly keeps asking
if I’m sure I’m not dead yet.

 

I’m getting tired of being part of a major historical event.

 

I don’t always go the extra mile, but when I do it’s because I missed my exit.

 

At what point can we just start using 2020 as profanity? As in:  “That’s a load of 2020.”  or “What in the 2020.”
or “abso-2020-lutely.”

 

You don’t realize how old you are until you sit on the floor and then try to get back up.  

 

We all get heavier as we get older, because there's a lot more information in our heads. That's my story and
I'm sticking to it.

 

 I think we can include 2021 and 2022  as well!!

Every word of that fits my pistol.  Could be one of the reasons I miss old BMJ.

He was quite a guy. 
 

I remember years ago I was complaining about bass fishing and how I just couldn’t figure out how to get them to hit. He said “If you’re stressed out while you’re fishing you’re doing it wrong!”

I still tell myself that today. :)

Been a year now that ol’ Badger’s been roamin’ around with Wheelgun Willy and Captain Jack, fishin’ the streams in heaven.

 

Never mind that!!  They ain’t fishin’.  They’re CATCHIN’!!!

 

 

(CURSE YOU, OTTO!!)

I've never been partial to tarter sauce.   Catsup with horseradish, lemon juice, and some pickle relish for me.

Good fish (like good ribs) don’t need no sauce!

My friend and keyboard player worked for TWRA, (Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency) as a surveyor for the fisheries department.  He smokes catfish for our weekend get-togethers, (I do different versions of shrimp) where the band members hang out and party.

 

That catfish is spectacular and we all look forward to the next time!!  I asked him where he got the recipe for his seasoning, but he hasn’t let me have it yet!!

Never was much for fishin’!!

 

I kinda’ like CATCHIN’ though.  If I haven’t caught something in the first half hour, I’m ready to go do something else!

 

 I do respect those who can spend the day and not fill a stringer.  They have figured out how to do something without doing anything!  :rolleyes: :lol:

I used to go fishing with my buddy and my cousin, both are gone now but I have some great memories except for cleaning the fish! I always hated that!:P

The steelhead are in the river, Badger. Too dang cold to get them, but they are there!  I drove along the Muskegon with my wife today on our way home from the cabin. It was running strong and clear. I'll always think of BMC when I do.
