Joke/Quote #10

   Well...It's hard to believe that it's been almost 2 weeks since my last fishing trip and post. As Bob Dylan once sang; "The times...they are a changing," and so it is true as I sit here writing this. Outside the temperature has dropped to the low 40's with a brisk wind blowing down from the north. In anticipation of the approaching fall migration I purchased a new set of waders last week and hope to give them a good christening this weekend.  I'll keep you posted in the coming weeks what's going on in the local rivers.

   That's all I've got for now, but in an effort to stay current and near the top of your blog rolls, I believe it's time for another installment of Joke/Quote of the Week. Enjoy and have a safe and fishy weekend!
A woman who has never seen her husband fishing doesn't know what a patient man she married.
1. There is no such thing as too much equipment.
2. When in doubt, exaggerate.
3. Even the best lines get weak after they have been used a few times.
4. Sometimes you really have to squirm to get off the hook.
5. The fishing is always better on the other side of the lake.
6. Good things come to those who wade.

 If you want happiness for an hour; take a nap. 
 If you want happiness for a day; go fishing. 
 If you want happiness for a month; get married. 
 If you want happiness for a year; inherit a fortune.   
 If you want happiness for a lifetime; help someone else.  
 Chinese Proverb

A taxidermist was driving through the deep south when he decided to stop in a small town and have a beer at the local bar. The locals didn't like outsiders in their bar and when he entered he was greeted with dirty stares and low mumbles.

He went to the bartender and asked for a beer. The bartender looked the man over thoroughly and then went to get the beer. When the bartender returned with the beer he asked the man "What do you do?"

The man replied "I'm a taxidermist"

The bartender asked "Taxidermist? What is that?"

The man replied "Well, I mount animals, birds, and fish."

With that the bartender turned to the other men in the bar and said "It's OK boys, he's one of us!"
