"It is what it is."   Actually I'm not sure that is an old saying.  But it is getting old.

I get asked a lot, (when is the best time to go fishing?) saying I give in return is (as often as you can!) another was one of my moms favorites (no good deed goes unpunished) and (familiarity breeds contempt)

A bad day fishing (hunting) is better than a good day at work.

If you can't run with the big dogs stay off the porch.

I feel so much better since I abandoned all hope.

Happier than a pig in a mud puddle.

The only time I ever made a mistake was the one time when I thought I was wrong.
