A man from Minnesota decided to write a book about churches around the
>> country. He started by flying to San Francisco, and started working east
>> from there. Going to a very large church, he began taking photographs and
>> making notes.
>>
>>
>> He spotted a golden telephone on the vestibule wall and was intrigued
>> with a sign which read "$10,000 a minute." Seeking out the pastor he
>> asked about the phone.
>>
>>
>> The pastor answered that this golden phone is, in fact, a direct line to
>> Heaven and if he pays the price he can talk directly to God.
>>
>>
>> The man thanked the pastor and continued on his way. As he continued to
>> visit churches in Denver, Des Moines, Dubuque, St. Louis, Chicago, even
>> east to Raleigh and Gary and he found more phones, with the same sign,
>> and got the same answer from each pastor.
>>
>>
>> Finally, he arrived in Minnesota. Upon entering a church in Grand Rapids
>> he saw the usual golden telephone.
>>
>> But this one, the sign read "Calls: 25 cents! . Fascinated, he asked to
>> talk to the pastor. "Reverend, I have been in cities all across the
>> country and in each church, I have found this golden telephone and have
>> been told it is a direct line to Heaven and that I could talk to God,
>> but, in the other churches the cost was $10,000 a minute. Your sign reads
>> only 25 cents a call. Why is that?"
>>
>>
>> The pastor, smiling, replied, "Son, you're in Minnesota now. This is
>> God's country...it's a local call."

Isn't Frostbite Flats adjacent to Frostbite Falls, which is right next door to Wassamatta U?

there was a story in the MDC mag. about an elderly
gentleman from st. louis who came to missouri every
year to turkey hunt, deer hunt, and fish. he stayed with
a man and his son who were not well off. one spring while
turkey hunting with the boy he told him "son i have a very
good bussiness in st. louis and am getting ready to retire,
my kids want nothing to do with the bussiness and i would
like for you and your family to go to work for me , i will
teach you the bussiness and when i retire its yours and you can
call your folks to visit anytime you want" the young man ask
"what you gonna do when you retire?"
"i just bought 20 acres across the river and am going to build
me a cabin and spend the rest of my life here"
young man looked at him "i'm already here and don't need a phone"

hey steve. wife took notes about your video
spent most the day at bass pro,(pd your stock may
went up). i have a question, you showed your method for
big walleye on slick water. you had on 10ft leader, however
i noticed your marker bouy was only about 6ft behind boat.
now if you get big one on how do you keep it from getting
tangled up in the bouy?

I used to love Rocky and Bullwinkle. The budget was minimal at best, so the art suffered. But they made up for it with the scripts! Lots of great satire in there, Captain Peachfuzz!

Wisconsin too... Grew up in real small town central Illinois and 6 years in central Iowa. Guess it'll always be home but I'm done with the beans & corn. I love these hills, lakes & hollows. Just wish people would stop moving down here. Ditto on the skeeters...

Tom and Jerry were OK, but they never had the political overtones of Rocky and Bullwinkle. Except during WWII.....then they were a great propaganda weapon, as were all the cartoon characters. And T & J never had a movie with live actors playing opposite the cartoon characters like Rocky and Bullwinkle did....and the Dudley Doright movie was right in character with the cartoon show. Ahhhh....Dudley vs
Snideley Whiplash to see who gets Sweet Nell. But what's this got to do with walleye fishing? Ah, who cares!
