    Well, Christmas is over finally, (in my mind anyhow, we have had the snow and ice and twinkling lights, so it is over, on to the next thing)

    Usually don't do this because it never really works, but this year is different. I have a neat network of new acquaintances who will help me keep faithful. It is so nice to have friends.

    I am going to make several "Resolutions of Spirit and Promise", that means these are my New Years Resolutions.

    I, (right hand in the air, and tear in my eye) solemnly resolve that the year Two Thousand Ought Eight shall bring these abundant wishes on my head......

    A. I resolve not to quit smoking. (probably not too tough)
    B. I resolve to continue drinking beer. ( I know I got this one in the bag)
    C. If Nancy continues to gain weight in the posterior, I resolve to buy a subscription to Playboy Magazine. (gotta hang this one in the kitchen where she will see it.
    D. I resolve to treat all moderators on this forum with dignity and respect. (this one will be tough, they are really wonderful people, but they make so much money I am jealous.)
    E. I resolve to vote for Hillary Clinton, even with the tremendous doubts I have. I firmly believe she is the next best thing after Wal-Mart, Al Quiada and the Dixie Chicks.)
    F. There are a few people on here who have poked at me. I resolve to kiss and make up to them. (spit)
    G. I resolve to spend more money from my Social Security check on other things than beer, cigarettes and Playboy magazines. Maybe I will buy a fresh box of 12 gauge shells. When the slugs come out the barrel of my 'ol 870 and land at my feet, I know my powder is bad.
    H. I resolve to take BG's picture down in my bathroom. I think it is starting to turn Nancy on.

    More, but the wonderful moderators, who I dearly love, would take down, edit, or otherwise dispose of in the trash.

    Those are mine, you wonderful people. I am counting on you to keep my nose to the grindstone. Let me see yours. the ones that I know you don't have a snowball's chance in Hades of keeping.

    Happy New Year. Postbeetle

    Oh yeah, make me find the last list I ignored so I can make a new one, I know it's around here someplace

    I resolve to drink only good beer.

    I resolve to catch only HUGE catfish.

    I resolve not to catch my shoes on fire while getting warm.

    I resolve my live bait will catch a fish or die trying.

    I resolve not to lose any more tackle in snags (this one is gonna be tough)

    Cant remember the other ones right now.

    Oh yeah, I resolve not to forget my resolutions.

    When it comes to my resolutions for 2008, just like Sam Oglethwaite, I will remain determined but moist!

    ok john, i think that you may have a problem with a few of your resolutions. most of them look pretty good though.heres mine
    1) i resolve to not check out women anymore, and if i ddo check out women, i will make sure they are hot women.
    2) i resolve to only drink beer on days that end in "Y".
    3) i resolve to not spend more than $2000 on fishing gear, and if i do, it is going to be really cool gear.
    4) i resolve to eat more red meat and dip copenhagen every day.
    5) i resolve to go fishing and not drink beer, unless there is a really good reason, like "i am fishing so why not"
    6) i resolve not to let my wife read this post (and if she does, honey, i didnt mean anything i said in this post)

    I resolve to quit trying to understand my 21 year old son, and my "29" year old wife. (You ol farts been married 100 years like me will get this.)

    I resolve to vote for the candidate who seems like they'd be the one to go party with. (Hillary, sorry.)

    I resolve to visit my friends more. Gonna have to get a couple more dogs.

    I resolve if it doesn't cast, shoot, float, taste good, I can't play or fight with it; I'm not having anything to do with it.

    I resolve to plan on having a good year, regardless of what I've known so far.

    Hmmmm... shall we say; You are stubborn, yet determined to remain as you are, even if that is to be, stubborn!!
    (The phrase "come hell or high water" comes to mind. I wonder if old Sam was thinking this very thing.)

    Thanks for literary field trip.

    Winston, I really enjoyed the poem Three Ha'Pence a Foot by Marriott Edgar. I nearly needed an interpreter though. Can you please clarify the term Long Bacon. :confused2:

    "Long Bacon" was a term used for when one places their thumb to his nose with fingers inline and pointing upwards and wiggling ones fingers.
    Not at all sure where the name comes from though.

    ok,

    I TdawgNOk, being of semi-sound mind and large waisted, do hereby formally resolve to:

    1. To Continue to hold the BOC record for number of catfish who laugh at me when I try to catch them.

    2. To outfish my wife at least one time in 2008, even if I have to leave her home to do so.

    3. To try very hard not to poke fun at granite butt and chumbootie *(you know who you are)*

    4. To try not to convince EVERY person I meet on the BOC that the Keystone Gathering is the best and the one that they need to try to go to.

    5. To fish more than 6 times in 2008

    6. To fill my freezer with deer meat again in 2008.

    7. To find someway to shake the hand of as many members as possible in 2008. :cool2:
