    sometimes i am just really tired..........i have to work tomorrow and maybe sunday too....i see welfare recipients in my town driving better cars than i have ever owned in my life....Darryl is in town for a few weeks and i am trying to go fishing with him...but when the penny is skinny i can't turn down work.


    but i am a very blessed person...there are people in burn units that wished they had my problems.............thank you Lord, for your blessings on me

    I know how you feel Phil, that sounded kind weird lol. Your always glad the lord blesses you but sometimes you wish he wouldn't bless you quite so much:smile2:. Especially when you have fishing plans. Did Darryl get to fish with Albert? Looking forward to meeting you and Darryl at the tournament next Saturday. Hopefully ya'll will get to come down.

    Phil; A little quote for ya.

    "Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before." James Buckham.

    Still makes it tough to suck up sometimes though don't it? John.

    Hang in there Phil!

    It's supposed to be pretty windy this weekend and rain tomorrow anyway. I don't know yet but OKLAHOMA WINDY is probably pretty windy.

    I am heading out to the fossil quarry down south in a few minutes and will be gone all weekend.

    We'll fish next week and I plan on hitting Thunderbird or elsewhere the entire next weekend. I'd like to pitch a tent and just stay down there but it isn't too far so I might save the cold weather camping for Texoma next month.

    Sorry Johnny, I don't think we are making the tourney next weekend. It's just a long way to go right now. Heck, I have a 2 1/2 hour trip to make this morning even. I am going to wear out my truck before I get back to Missouri. If I don't go broke buying gas that is. LOL

    Phil, I share your feelings about some welfare recipients. We know of a family that's been on some kind of welfare all their life. Paying for groceries with food stamps and paying cash for beer.
    About working overtime... I never down turned an hour in my life. If I could work for regular pay, I darn sure could work for time and half. I worked with people that were always complaining about not having enough money but refused all overtime.... made no sense to me.

    You are so right about one counting their own blessings... I seem to forget when things are going good.

    Phil, the 10 years I had my business here in OKC. it was in overload 1 month and bone dry dead the next. You can never out guess the plubic. So we did the same, worked hard in the busy time, and fished in the slow. We were just 1 mile from Overholser lake, and we took turns opening the shop while the other guy fished. I dont miss all those long 8:00am to midnight hours at all. I love this retirement thing, and I do it well.
