Well, you people out there, I am really bored now! I thought I was bored before yesterday but I really am today. Too early for fishing; read all my good books; called everyone I know and gripped about the weather and even purchased my valentines and sent them out!
Speaking of valentines, that among other things is a “thing of the past”. Here I am “dating” myself again. Remember when we were young we spent hours making paper valentines, purchasing just the right card to give our “sweetie” and then being so bashful when it came time to give it to him or her? Well, now all you get is an e-card on your e-mail. That is if you have a computer. But I guess that is better than nothing. I have already picked out just the right card for the Hubby. Of course, I already know what will happen on the big day. He will say, “Is it Valentine’s day” already? Well, this is how you cure that, when you read this column and put down the paper, just “casually” remind them that Valentine’s Day is coming up. Ask if he wants to get you a card, take you out to eat or better still; get you one of those “big red hearts” filled with candy. Remember when that just made your heart “flutter” when you were young? Most of the time the boy friend ate all the good chocolate pieces.
Well, I will get off that depressing subject. If he does get a “big red heart” then you will have to pace yourself not to eat it all in one day. As they say, “Over the lips, on the hips” and believe me it happens. This cold weather has made me pick up a few pounds. Just sitting around waiting on spring and cooking like a fool! You remember I did tell you to do that to pass the time.
I am about to tell you about the most depressing thing of all. Get the crying towel out because this will get you “right where it hurts”. Maybe not you women but I know all the men out there will know exactly what I am talking about. IT’S OVER!!!
FOOT BALL SEASON IS OVER. No more Monday night football, no Thursday night games and worst of all no Sunday afternoon play action. No more good looking quarterbacks to look at; what on earth am I going to do.
We went to a Super Bowl party and this is the first time in my football history that my team won!
I can truly say, I love football almost as good as fishing. I noticed that all the ladies there looked bored and really didn’t get into the game. You know what “get in the game” is; that is really feeling the action on the field. But just one lady next to me, quietly said she was for the Ravens. So from that moment on we were pals. I nearly jumped up and down when they won. There were a few men that weren’t so tickled. But that is okay, we have another year coming up this fall. In September, we will be back to football again.
It just occurred to me, I fish from March till September and then there is football from September until it is time for fishing again. Man, what a perfect life I have. Of course you can throw in a few parties at the lake; fish fries and a few fireworks displays on holidays and of course all the great people who come by and wave from their boats. Just think, before too long I will be writing about all the things I see at the lake.
Everybody keep watching, I am planning to get a post office box in Dunmor and I hope you will just drop me a line every now and then and let me know HOW YOU REALLY FEEL! You see the Hubby does that every time he opens his mouth. I am forever telling him when he spouts off about something, “JUST TELL ME HOW YOU REALLY FEEL AND THEN THE FIGHT BEGINS!
It’s so long and good bye for another week, the ground hog did not see his shadow and I am already thinking fishing instead of football. If you have not noticed Wayne’s place has added a bait shop. I guess that is really what it is; the last time I was there it wasn’t finished completely. Check it out when you are in the neighborhood.
That’s all folks!
