  • Boat extended warranties

    Often people have described a boat as a hole in the water in which to throw money — or something like that. And, there is considerable truth in the saying.
    As I sit at the computer writing this column, the boat repair guy is due on Monday to work on my old 60-horse motor. There’s always something to repair, to spend money on.
    But, on the flip side, my boats have always given me lots of pleasure fishing the Ohio River, skiing, exploring river banks for a picnic spot, watching birds or just enjoying the scenery at Kentucky Lake or Green River.

  • Cold nights, mild days good for...

    There still are people who make maple syrup. It’s tasty, a sign of spring, and a lot of work.
    Maple syrup time is time when the wonderful aroma of cooking syrup can wafts its way down the valleys from sugar camp hills.
    Making maple syrup is almost a lost art.  Most people who make the sweet, tasty syrup in this part of the country do it for the enjoyment and make enough to earn a few bucks and provide a supply for family and friends.

  • Snow brings back ice cream...

    Although snow has been scarce this winter, snow still has been on my mind, and snow  brought to mind  something I really enjoyed in my younger years — snow ice cream. The fact is, I still enjoy it.
    Sometimes March produces some big snows. They don’t last long, but long enough for ice cream.
    Growing up, ice cream was a real treat. It was something very special.

  • Alabama rig is latest new hot...

    Remember the craze about the Big O bass lure? There were tales of them being rented on a day-to-day basis.
    Everybody wanted one back in 1967. Founder Fred Young couldn’t build them fast enough. They were handcrafted from balsa wood.
    Eventually, Cotton Cordell’s company obtained the rights to the lure and began mass producing the lure, which caught lots of big fish.
    There have been other lure crazes, but that was the biggest I recall until maybe now. Now, it’s the Alabama rig. It’s a bass catching sensation.
