Waste of good meat

Some of them folks in Washington know a heap more than they talk and some them talk lot more than they know, seems like.

Some 62 years ago my ship was in Port-A-Prince. It was a terrible site then, heaven knows it must look awful now, so sad.

This past Wednesday on a trip to Dothan for a murial meeting, I counted seven dead dear along the road side. Waste of good meat.

Russell Smith’s grandson, Gabe, killed an eight-point buck hunting with his dad, Eric Smith, last Saterday evening. He took a doe last year. That’s a good thing git-em started fishen or huntin’ and they they’ll stay hooked.

It is also a good thing that Hank Parker will be at Friendship Babtist Church on Spring Creek Road on the 29th of January at 6 p.m. He is a great speaker and is the only man to win two BassMaster Classics back to back.

Crappie are still being taken on minnows in a little bit deeper water than before, bass is slow however some was caught Sunday and a pile of ducks was taken, we measured 1 and 1/2 inches of water that fell with the system that came over Saterday and stoped Sunday, however 10:45 Sunday the winds were blowing so hard there was a dust storm on one of the fields.

Over on the creck on the coldest day of all, hundreds of needle fish died.

The same thing happened on Lake Okeechobee except it was Talopia dieing all over the place. Some were caught (snaged) and eat they are a fine tasting fish.
