Gone fishing ~

 Fried chicken - radio - crickets - ginger ale - moon pies - check! See ya!

Guess I'll leave some fishing songs...


    That was a pretty funny Brad Paisley song!

    Women! Don't never give your man an ultimatum, because you just might not like the choice he makes.

    I think that probably THIS IS MY FAVORITE FISHING SONG.

      Wow! Andy Griffith - Crawdad Hole - yeah! I'll make the slaw and hushpuppies; bring 'em! Andy sang a lot on his show. I laughed at the "Darlings," but they really were pretty good. You know, (no you don't but I'm gwanna share). I worked with the designer of Griffith's suits for the Matlock series. Sewing those little seercucker pinstripes were "h" on the eyes! We'd make him seven suits at a time. Wonder if he's got a version of "Swing Low Sweet Chariot"? Betcha he does.

      Ultimatum, shultimatum... a tournament, prize money, little blue ribbon, maybe a a nice trophy for my bookcase? Utter silence, except when some lucky skunk catches the fish that just slipped off of my line(!) I'm going. Pitch my clothes in the yard! I'd like to try fishing for frogs, but I'm not sure if it's a GIG I can get into. Ha!

      Glad you liked Brad.

  2. Good "gig" joke!

    I'm a huge fan of The Andy Griffith Show (the black & white episodes). I have never even seen one single episode of 'Matlock'. I've caught a few minutes here and there while channel surfing, but that's it.

    Where were you living when you made suits for Andy Griffith? I'm surprised it wasn't someone in Hollywood making his suits, like, say, 'Nudie's Rodeo Tailors' or someone like that.

    1. Thanks on the gig - ~ D-FensDogG

      I watched all of Andy, (B&W) but not Matlock. I may have seen one episode; couldn't stand the theme song either.

      In Charlotte, NC. We made his suits in a costume shop, 1992, (Abra Cadabra, Central Ave.). The Production Company was in Wilmington, NC. The show's costumer would bring in loads of pure cotton to make the suits. My boss had some serious sewing equipment. We all had Certifications in Tailoring. He came to Charlotte because he knew my boss would get everybody helping him. We got paid. Ha! Seven suits in three days... sweet. Three and half hour drive back to Wilmington. End of story.

      Rest up for the battles. Ha!
