It has been said that the most a man could ask for in life is to have one good dog and one good woman love him. I am a blessed man.
I've had a few good dogs. This was, perhaps, the best. He was smarter than I am. I know! I know what you're thinking, J9! That wouldn't have to be very smart.
One good woman! Hey, we're talking about hallowed ground, here! Billie has never said, "Don't go!" She only says, "Have fun!"

(Scripture) 1 Corinthians 13:11
When I was a child I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I.....
(Reality) ....bought Big Boys' Toys and went out to play!
Until I lose my marbles, I'll continue to buy Big Boys' Toys and keep having fun.
We do have fun! My daughter, Tami, caught the big one behind us. It started out at 150 pounds. It has grown in five years to about 280 pounds. The other two aren't slouches! They're over 150 pounds, now. Robyn, we caught our limit that day out of Ninilchic. Click on the picture to appreciate the size of the...err...300 lb. fish.
Many of my friends and I have forgotten more Big Boys' Toys than we own. This is my pal, James, who continues to battle pancreatic cancer.
Grandson, Cameron. Big Boy Toy connoisseur in training.
The World Golf Hall of Fame complex is a great place to visit when you drop in to see us.
The WHATZIT putter. Even I can make that one.
My grandson, Braden, a terrific golfer, and a fine young man.

Jim and Brady, on the Honda that I won at a drawing.
My son-in-law, Jim, is teaching the Big Boy Toy thing to his sons.
I do still have a lot of my old toys lying around. In this stack the only thing I'm qualified to use these days, is the pink golf ball.
If there were not thousands of retirees (old as dirt) here, I would probably have a bike. The ancient ones will run over you and not even know it. Wait a minute! I think I'm one of them now.
They say that the two happiest days of a mans life is the day he buys his first big boat, and the day that he sells it. Click on the photo to see the asking price of this used boat.
Seven Hundred Fifty Horsepower ought to do it!
My neighbor's sister drives the convertible. He drives the van, but is the best mechanic I've ever seen. He restores old cars in his garage.
This, certainly qualifies as a classic Big Toy, for a big boy.
Some toys look good just sitting in the driveway.
My favorite Big Boys' Toy Store in our town, Gander Mountain. My favorite anywhere? - Cabela's! Bass Pro Shops, for fishing.
My wife says I have more fishing rods than Wal Mart, but, I can't compete with Gander Mountain.
These are sharp, but I prefer Penn.
Bagman was negotiating for this one. As I left I heard him ask, "What do I do if it rains?"

I don't think a deer would be afraid of that rifle. Do you?
Compound bows. I was afraid if I touched them that they might go off!
Nice friendly fellow, but, it was curious that he was carrying around his pet turkey.
This man was great! We talked about guns, and then he posed for me. I told him, "Look mean!"
Does it hurt less if an animal is shot with a pink rifle? Just wondering.
When a woman talks about a bow, these days, it's probably not for her hair.
Lots of colorful hats for our ladies. There's one just like Reggie Girl's!
This sales lady was kind enough to show me that there were lots of things for Big Girls, too. I don't mean that in a bad way ladies.
