Venison jerky is great.

I've only had mass produced pork rinds from stores and vending machines. They normally have plain, barbecue, and hot. I like barbecue the best but think I'm due for a bag of hot ones. They also sell bags of cracklins that are smaller and hard.

Well, as the youngsters around here might say, "Damn, Peg! You old!"

I think my whole family saw The French Connection in 1971, The Godfather in 1972, and The Cowboys with John Wayne, also in 1972. It was sad when The Duke died. I can think of any others right now that I think we all saw together.

Beats me by over 9 lbs.

It's been so long I'm not completely sure what this one fish I caught looked like but I think it was a walleye. My dad and I were out in a little 12' aluminum boat and I caught a beauty of a fish. We put in in a collapsible metal basket with a spring-loaded lid. It was hanging over the side of the boat tied to a stringer and we forgot to pull it in when we moved. The water forced the lid open and my fish swam away before we got the basket in the boat. I never caught another fish like that in my life. I've caught perch, bluegills, pumpkinseeds too I think, suckers, and at least one bullhead. I remember a bullhead swallowing my hook so deep I couldn't even get it out with a long plastic-handled hook disgorger. There are rainbow trout in the creek downhill of my brothers' cabin but I never fished it. I wasn't a good fisherman but I was the only one in my family who ever caught a redhorse sucker. The fins and tail were pink, or was it red? They aren't called pinkhorses.

When I was a kid sometimes we'd ride our bikes a few miles over to the dam and catch carp. My friends' mom fried some up with butter and lemon, and fed them to her cat/s. I don't think any of us ever ate a carp. I know I didn't. One day we were throwing carp on the road over the dam and watching cars run them over. Cheap entertainment right there, especially when a bus drives by. One guy saw the carp on the road and did a burnout on one. Skinned it instantly. If there are any rednecks here thinking about jacking up your car and sliding fish down a ramp to skin them, do me a favor. Get video of it.

Four years ago we had a whole deer processed into jerky for $70. It was much better than store-bought jerky.

Right now I'm snacking on some locally fried pork skins.

:) :) :) The Laughing Cow fuse is a new one on me.


Arkansas Democrat-Gazette 25 July 1996

Two local men were seriously injured when their pickup truck left the road and struck a tree near Cotton Patch on state Highway 38 early Monday morning. Woodruff County Deputy Dovey Snyder reported the accident shortly after midnight Monday.

Thurston Poole, 33, of Des Arc, and Billy Ray Wallis, 38, of Little Rock, are listed in serious condition at Baptist Medical Center.

The accident occurred as the two men were returning to Des Arc after a frog-gigging trip. On an overcast Sunday night, Poole’s pickup truck’s headlights malfunctioned. The two men concluded that the headlight fuse on the older model truck had burned out. As a replacement fuse was not available, Wallis noticed that the .22 caliber bullet from his pistol fit perfectly into the fuse box next to the steering wheel column. Upon inserting the bullet, the headlights again began to operate properly and the two men proceeded on eastbound toward the White River Bridge.

After traveling approximately 20 miles and just before crossing the river, the bullet apparently overheated, discharged and struck Poole in the right testicle. The vehicle swerved sharply to the right, exiting the pavement and striking a tree. Poole suffered only minor cuts and abrasions from the accident but will require surgery to repair the other wound. Wallis sustained a broken clavicle and was treated and released.

“Thank God we weren’t on that bridge when Thurston (shot his intimate parts off) or we might have been dead,” stated Wallis. “I’ve been a trooper for 10 years in this part of the world, but this is a first for me. I can’t believe that those two would admit how the accident happened,” said Snyder.

Upon being notified of the wreck, Lavinia, Poole’s wife, asked how many frogs the boys had caught, and did anyone get them from the truck.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Bruce Willis remake of Bronson’s Death Wish wasn’t bad,


Another sign of getting old is remakes of movies that you saw in a theater in it's original version.  ;D

There's a movie that came out before The Predator, on 9/11, called Alien Predator. It's by Uncork’d Entertainment, and Internet Movie Database, IMDb.com, rates it as 2.3/10. I've gotten emails from Redbox that when I checked to see what the new movies were about, their other movies have gotten really bad ratings too. They made a movie called The 13th Friday instead of Friday The 13th, and some other awfully bad sounding movies.

It sounds like they got their inspiration from The Asylum who made Atlantic Rim instead of Pacific Rim, and way too many other ripoffs to mention. They like to put out DVDs that people get suckered into buying right before the real thing comes out at the theater. If a movie says made by Uncork'd Entertainment or The Asylum, just assume it's a great big steaming pile of $#!^ until proven otherwise.
