"THE OLD GEEZER CLUB"
Ok so here's another one of my fishin stories. I love older folks and I hang out with them a good bit. Well I have a mess of fellas I go to church with that are all retired. I love them dearly. It was these fellas that got Danny & I to go fishin at Lake Lochloosa for the first time last year. Danny doesn't go to church with me so he had to learn these fellas through me. He loves them and they love Danny. Anyway....I call them "The Old Geezer Club". Now I know this doesnt sound very respectful but you would just have to know me & this bunch of fellas. They are good Christian men & I'm thankful to have to put up with them....wait I mean to know them! LOL! On with the story.....I was told by one of the members of the OGC that a couple fellas bought some walkie talkies and wanted to use them while out on the lake. Danny & I had fished hard all day & just didn't catch many so we thought we would find a member of the OGC to see what he had been catching. Now mind you, every member carries his own boat. Danny & I went across the lake & found these two OGC members sitting side by side in their own boats talking to each other on their walkie talkies!! I caught them with my camera! After picking on them..I found out they had not JUST ONE set of radios but THREE different sets of radios & THEY BOTH HAD PHONES!! Yeah I just about wet my pants! CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW??!!!

Some folks just can't do without their modern conveniences!

Tina, my Larry and I could be a member of the OGC. We just want to make sure we have all our calls covered.

I spent the first 25 years of my marriage trying to get larry to go to Church and he did not like to. He would go once in a while. Then one morning he changed and now he is the one always wanting to go and I try not to be vocal like him but I am the one wishing I could just stay here at home. I don't know why the roles reversed, but just let Danny stay home if he wants to. The role of 'wanting the other one to go' is a better role.
I always felt sort of religious. Now that I am the one really not wanting to go...I feel bad about my inside feelings ...ones not voiced. I wish I had just let Larry stay home and now I could stay home too!

I think they enjoy the fellowship as much as the fising! I have enjoyed being around older people and now I am one!

The meal last night as delicious! We had:
Hot chicken salad with almond topping, butterbeans, asparagus casserole, brown rice, sliced tomatoes, congealed salad on lettuce, mexican cornbread, crescent rolls, pound cake, coconut cake and ice tea.

I enjoy older people too. I always learn something from them...and that is blessing enough.

What a great club! Perhaps they all have matching t-shirts: I Fish, Therefore I Lie?
