It's snowing/sleeting/freezing raining.
This ain't the tropics I assure you.
I just took this picture at 9:10 am.
For some strange reason I found myself thinking of "Robby the Robot" from the old television series, "Lost In Space".
I loved that show, especially when they used "Robby" for comic relief.
You don't have to watch all of this clip, but fast forward to the 3:35 portion of the clip.
"Robby" is supposed to be performing a part in a play with Dr. Smith, complete with costume. They don't show the set up. I wish they did. "Robby" is dressed as a girl and delivers the lines in a hilarious falsetto voice. "Please, please don't throw me out." he pleads with the villain played by Mr. Smith. Mr Smith's character replies evilly, "Give me one good reason I shouldn't."
"Robby" drops back down into his regular voice and hammers the punchline.
As a kid I always loved that scene.
It's a cold Winter's day, no doubt. Soon........very soon, I'll be back fishing.
That means Doc and I hitting the warm waters off Florida.
Me hitting the beach at Grand Isle, LA.
Me fishing the back waters off the Mississippi River from a kayak.
Me fishing the surf on the Outer Banks.
Doc and I fishing the lower Delaware River/Delaware Bay.
A return trip in August to Grand Isle, LA for a midweek fishing/crabbing trip.
Maybe even a road trip to northwest Arkansas/southwest Missouri for some bass fishing.
Ambitious? Not really. This year I'm going to fish as much as my heart and budget can stand. I'll keep one of my poles here at the farm. I have a pole stored at my late brother's house in Nags Head. My treat to myself is to get two new poles for my home base in Memphis.
The "Air Traffic Mike World Fishing Tour 2010" commences the last week in March.
It's going to be warm/hot.
My hands will reek of bait and fish, both fresh water and salt water.
I'm predicting at least six times where I hook myself.
There's a good chance I'll lose in excess of $100 worth of tackle.
I'm already planning on eight different states to fish in.
International waters are not off the menu.
I'm debating whether to make it individual blogs or one big retrospective blog.
Miles travelled will measure in the thousands.
The right seat of my truck is open should anyone like to tag along.
Splitty the Maul will go fishing for the first time.
Catching a fish using a maul may be a fishing first.
Splitty is psyched.
Enjoy the Winter day God gave us today.
Warm weather will soon return.
So will fishing.
Doc, Splitty, and I will be ready.
Until the next time, all y'all take care of yourselves.
Air Traffic Mike, ret.
