MY QUALITY TIME BLOG #WISDOM #JOKES... & #TRAVEL..Sarah Josepha Hale .. Four married guys go fishing...Do whatever you want.. A COUPLE LIGHTHOUSES IN THE OUTER BANKS.. ROANOKE SOUND

 Thank You Sarah Josepha Hale

Four married guys go fishing. After an hour, the following conversation took place...
First guy, "You have no idea what I had to do to be able to come out fishing this weekend. I had to promise my wife that I will paint every room in the house next weekend."
Second guy, "That's nothing; I had to promise my wife that I will build her a new deck for the pool."
Third guy, "Man, you both have it easy!
I had to promise my wife that I will remodel the kitchen for her."
They continue to fish when they realized that the fourth guy has not said a word!
So they asked him. "You haven't said anything about what you had to do to be able to come fishing this weekend.
What's the deal"
Fourth guy, "I just set my alarm for 5:30 am. When it went off, I shut off my alarm, gave the wife a nudge and said,
"Fishing or se*x," and she said, wear sun-block!

Today's Quotes:::"No influence is so powerful as that of the mother."
"It requires but a few threads of hope, for the heart that is skilled in the secret, to weave a web of happiness."
"And you each gentle animal
In confidence may bind,
And make them follow at your call,
If you are always kind."
"The temple of our purest thoughts is silence."
"There is no impossibility to him who stands prepared to conquer every hazard. The fearful are the failing."
"I have no riches but my thoughts, yet these are wealth enough for me."

The Roanoke Marshes lighthouse is often one of the most overlooked of the Outer Banks lighthouses, simply because of its small stature, limited visibility and remote location tucked away at the quiet east end of the Manteo waterfront.

That said, visitors to historic Downtown Manteo will have no problem spotting the small lighthouse that jets out 40 yards into the Roanoke Sound. The prim white exterior with black shutters and red shingled roof, capped off by a 2' ft., 4" in. tall lens, gives this lighthouse a classic coastal look, and vacationers of all seasons are welcome to stroll the wooden boardwalk and explore the exterior, while enjoying a fantastic waterfront view to boot.

So four dudes spend weeks planning the perfect camping and fishing trip to a remote and disconnected spot.
Two days before they are due to leave, Dave's wife puts her foot down and tells him he's not going.
His buddies are naturally pissed off that he can't go, but what can they do, they decide to push on
Two days later the three fellas arrive at the remote camp site to find Dave sitting there with a tent set up, firewood gathered, beer open and fish cooking on the fire. Steve: 'Damn man, how long you been here and how did you talk your wife into letting you go?'
Dave: 'I've been here since last night.. Yesterday afternoon I was sitting in my chair and my wife came up behind me and put her hands over my eyes and said 'guess who..' I pulled her hands off and she was wearing a brand new see-through nightie. She then took my hand and led me to our bedroom.The room had two dozen candles and rose petals all over. On the bed were handcuffs and ropes!She told me to tie and cuff her to the bed, so I did.'
'And then she said:' 'Do whatever you want.'....So here I am


MY QUALITY TIME BLOG #WISDOM #JOKES... & #TRAVEL..CASS SCENIC BALD KNOB TRIP....Michael Crichton ....'My Poor Ass': Michelangelo.. Nick Offerman..Solace in the outdoors

 His laugh really is insane


Nick Offerman on why he finds solace in the outdoors::: I grew up in a small town, and that was kind of my pastime was riding my bike to the creek and going fishing with my family and building a treehouse. And I guess I never got out of the habit. I need to get out and look at the creek or look at some trees. Read More


'My Poor Ass': Michelangelo.. A Poem About How Much He Hated Painting the Sistine  Chapel

I've already grown a goiter from this torture,
hunched up here like a cat in Lombardy
(or anywhere else where the stagnant water's poison).
My stomach's squashed under my chin, my beard's
pointing at heaven, my brain's crushed in a casket,
my breast twists like a harpy's. My brush,
above me all the time, dribbles paint
so my face makes a fine floor for droppings!

Today's Quotes:::: “If you don't know history, then you don't know anything. You are a leaf that doesn't know it is part of a tree.”
“I am certain there is too much certainty in the world.”
“Do you know what we call opinion in the absence of evidence? We call it prejudice.”
“The planet has survived everything, in its time. It will certainly survive us.”
“God created dinosaurs. God destroyed dinosaurs. God created Man. Man destroyed God. Man created dinosaurs. Dinosaurs eat man...Woman inherits the earth.”
“No one escapes from life alive.”
“Life will find a way.”
― Michael Crichton
