I'll be honest, which in fishing is rare, but only for 547 more words.
LAS VEGAS - Floyd Mayweather Jr. didn't exactly plan for it to happen this way. The thought of sitting in a jail cell for two months can't be a pleasant one, especially while the entourage enjoys life without him at the Big Boy house.
I was able to get out and enjoy some of the beautiful weather we've been having recently.
I'm an expert at losing fish.
I recall as a boy that our family would save for our summer vacations in the mountains by saving silver dollars all year. Whenever a silver dollar or "Cartwheel" would show up in the cash register of Dad's store, he would take a one dollar bill out of his wallet and replace the coin with it. The accumulated cartwheels would go into a canvas money bag saved for use on vacation. We would regularly fill up the tank on our jeep for three or four dollars!

I mean, what creek ever teased you about your pimples; what breeze ever ridiculed you in front of your friends?"
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - The hugs with his family took place on the clubhouse lawn, not the 18th green. That was occupied, and by this time there was nothing Phil Mickelson could do about it.
The older I get, the faster that time seems to fly. It seems like only yesterday that I was chasing my first bear in the woods near Hoopa. It's hard to believe that it's now been over 35 years ago. Last fall my son Donald and I were once again out in the woods running after bears. Without a doubt the best way to catch a bear is to use trained hounds. While it may sound like it's a simple matter to just shoot a bear once the hounds have treed him, nothing could be farther from ...
Some time ago I decided that one fishing pole wasn't enough. Before long I had more fishing poles than I could possibly keep track of.
