Welcome to the club. Even you young pups can stop on by as long as you mind your manners. There may be snow on the roof but there's a fire that ol' diablo would covet in the furnace so watch out!

We ate walleyes three days in a row. Last night it was 43 minutes from catching them to cleaning them to eating them. I've never had fresher fish and, boy, were they good!!!!! Had several fillets left over after last night's big fish dinner so we had them for breakfast and brought a couple of fish sandwiches along for snacks on the drive home. Good trip home....549 miles in 10 hours and 03 minutes. Fortunately over 300 miles was on 70 mph freeways.

Pass the jug. I gotta get reacquainted with geezer's Miracle Hooch!

Maggie, if you have any extra springs, I'll take 'em. Ya never know which one will be the right one.

Awright, time to test the Percheron Candy Ejection System (PCES, pronounced "pieces"). Fire in the hole!! (great pun, eh?)

:::three pieces of hooch candy drop to the group with a dull thud:::

Nope. Needs more spring tension. Back to the shop with you, Perch.

Well I was thinking while I was cleaning out the garage and my head hurt so bad I had to stop while I was ahead and pick up the old jug. Well i'll tell sitting on a lawn chair and relaxing a little bit and thats when I noticed that the refrigerator in the garage was not working so I pulled it out to take a look see, I ended up pulling the plug and started taking the doors off so no youguns would get hurt, and finished cleaning the garage out. Will be going to the recycle center to drop off the doors and various other items, geezer do you have enough springs or should I look for some heavy duty ones? Say Cris I don"t throw like I use to when I played womans soft ball but nice try on the catch,snicker you do know how to move in order to catch them don't you? Say BJ you know you have to dig a hole first and then stand in it get the rod ready and let her rip that way they can't carry you down stream. At least that's what my uncle use to tell me or maybe he was getting smart about my height! Well I have to stop for a while I'am so thirsty for some reason. Geezer don;t ponder to hard you could get a brain phart.

BJ, those are some powerful binoculars you have there! What kind of fish are you catching? Any Talipia? Lol...
Maggie, I can't catch like I used to in high school. I should have had that last pass, no one was covering me! Get that garage cleaned out, here comes another jug of hooch. Don't drop it now...
Geezer, these rolls of toilet paper already have the perfect sized hole in them! All we need to do is reduce the spring tension. I brought over a couple of old Pogo-sticks I used when I was a little duck. One or two springs? Whatcathink??
Pass the hooch, and don't forget today is "National Hooch Day" (I made that up).

Dang! The tiny editor got me!

I'm kinda glad I'm up here fishing (and eating fish)and not working on the ol' geezers club Gastonia Days float. I'm sure I'd be able to get my fingers dirty whilst contributin' to the finished product. At least, if it gets finished before the parade, after all the trials and tribulations. It's kinda nice to sit on the sidelines and watch the drama unfold. My hosts here have their own brand of home made hooch and I'm gettin' used to it. Fortunately, I've gotta leave before I become too fond of it, or I might consider makin' a change of residence.

Pass the jug. I'm gonna watch the float buildin' from afar!

TESTING... TESTING... TESTING... Whoa! A little too much spring tension there, geezer! we just blasted the whole rear-end out of the Paper Mache Percheron! Maybe we shouldn't use Oh Henry candy bars?
Magpie, pass that 1000 sheet roll of toilet paper, I have to think about this huge hole here.
Ah crap! Now I'm thirsty! Pass the hooch pleeeeease? The hole can wait until morning.

Hello boys, geezer every road here in wis. leads us on a road trip! We have so much construction going on its not safe to leave home unless you have too! They all have these signs saying detour here but some of them do not tell you which way to go or if you are close to your destination. Worse part is that the police are every where you turn and they don't exactly tell you the speed limit on some of the back roads! We stopped at Jimmy's Grotto and we had a Ponza's and an order of deep fried green pepper rings. The place was full of bikers on their way up to Oshkosh for the air show they were really great guys so we had a lot of fun there. Thank you all guys I told the girls and they said thank you and that it was cool that I told you guys one girl said we made the internet they all jumped up onto the bench's and sang We will We will rock you! Also they said that you are all so cool! So we do have an impressive image bj but we are cool too!!:)

Sounds like Haley's team is totally professional. A 12-0 thumping in the final game! IMPRESSIVE!!! Give her a big hug from all of us, Maggie, but don't give her any of geezer's candy.

What happened to the Percherons that were sposed to draw the float? We don't want any of those wimpy little palominos. Could compromise our impressive image. We do have an impressive image don't we?

Pass the jug. I gotta get ready to go fishing again!

Maggie, send congrats from the clubhouse gang to your granddaughter, will ya? Mebbe we should think about makin' a kid's hooch to send along as well for times such as this.

Got any road trip stories for us, Maggie?

Work on the Gastonia Day parade float is movin' along. The horse is ready. All we need is a little fine tunin' an' that Palomino is ready to be mounted...on the float. Oh, I wish 'ol Gene Autry could ride her and croon "Back in the Saddle Again."

Sorry about not being here heyChris46 Big time tournament for the grand-daughter and her team they won both games on sat. and I had to say no to the the jug because sunday were two more games! Well by Sunday I was pretty shook up first game was at 10:30 and they won. Next game wasn't until 4pm,and I was pretty shacky and figured it was in the the wind. First it was not going so well the other team had no hits and neither did we, then a girl went to first and then another girl and then the grand-daughter was up and swung and it was a strike. The next one was a strike then the coach from the other team yelled out you got her shaking now,and then the pitch. Haley hit a homer and all the girls came home! They held the other team to nothing and won 12 to 0 pass the jug men the drinks are on the house. They won the final tournament of the season and granma's buying for all ye ha!!!! Now I hope this finds all you gents in fine form and good health. Whats next on the menu and what can I do to help pass the jug jug ma I'm thirsty!

BJ, back in '70, my brother and I tripped from Dayton to Fairbanks, in a 1962 Volkswagen bus tricked out with a small bed and storage underneath the bed. We carried 2 spare tires on the roof, cause the Al-Can highway was nothing but 1500 miles of gravel with some towns 75 miles apart! Such a wilderness at that time. No cell phones. Lol... Enjoy your trip.

OK, I'll try to stick to hooch drinking, not puns.
I'm way better at hooch drinking.

Don't Bogart it geezer, pass the elixir, its close enough to noon for me.

Chris my friend has wi-fi so I can get on the 'net with both my computer and cell phone. We might be at the end of the road up here but technology is everywhere. Won't get any fishing this weekend but we'll get plenty of music. I brought my guitar and Mrs BG brought her upright string bass, so we hadda full car (Honda CRV) for thid trip. We've had 2 good jams so far and will hit it pretty hard for the next couple of days. Gotta run....

Pass the jug. Time to have a quick one!

BG, back in ought six I took a ride across Canada on the Queens Highway from Michigan's UP to the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. Fantastic country! I saw my first moose in the wild. Dead, at the side of the road. I did manage to see a live one on the trip back, however.

Look around for JJ while you're up there, will ya?

Hey BJ! Did you pull into a McDonald's with WiFi? Surprised to hear from you so soon. So you gonna do some fishing in Red Lake? Or flying North some more? Does this mean I have to quit drinking your share of the hooch?

Geezer, I remember the story about why "Hey Mabel, Black Label" got fired. One night, they found Schlitz in her pants!... :::crickets chirping:::
If Schlitz merged with Schick, you'd have Schlitz-Schick. Try saying that fast, 10 times! :::more crickets chirping:::

The float is almost ready, BG. we decided on a Bergeron ON the float. This is a special Bergeron, though. When the tail goes up, the hooch candy shoots out to the crowd. Clever, eh? Of course, that means our robot Bergeron has to be mounted backwards on the front of the float, but chances are good no one will notice.

Chris, Fuller Brush merged with Shick Razor Company years ago, but eventually went out of business. I guess ringin' a doorbell and yellin' out "I'm Fuller-Shick" just didn't work.

The border, BG? Where are you headed, Mississippi?

Howdy Geezers

It's been 16 years since I retired from the military and 14 since I left my well-payin' form of employment. And, y'know, I miss the military (C-130 Loadmaster) flying but not the civilian job. Mrs BG and I made some good retirement moves so now we're doin OK and love being paid to stay home. Best part about it is we can come and go as we please.....and usually do.

So, have we decided on a float design for the Gastonia Days Parade? Mebbe an oversized outhouse towed by a pair of Percherons or something to that effect. I like the idea of Miracle Hooch candy for distribution to the masses of spectators. In the past there have been about 30 nursing home residents lining the parade route and I'm sure they'd appreciate the bump they'd get from the candy.

Pass the jug. I gotta finish packin' for our road trip this afternoon!

Ducks eat vegans???? Who'da thunk it? I may not check in with you coots for a while as I'll be out on a road trip and after that at a bluegrass festival. I sure am glad I retired those many years ago since I wouldn't be able to cram in all these activities if I were working. So, try not to get into tooooo much trouble whilst I'm gone!

I got long winded last night, an' Mrs. Geezer went to the guest room to sleep. She just doesn't realize I was looking out for her health. A study from the University of Exeter, wherever that is, says smelling farts can help prevent cancer. (True! You can look it up.)

Good Afternoon Geezers

I hadda cut the grass this AM and then my music teacher came over to give me a singin' lesson. Heck, I've barely had time to get started on my day's drinkin'! Who knew retirement would be sooooooo busy? Gonna go over to the marina and fire up Riff Raft and go out for a river cruise.

Hooch candy sounds like a great idea. We could put extra sugar and corn syrup in it, and make a deal with the local dentists to get them extra business because of the tooth rot we'd be promotin'. Of course, we'd have ta get them to share some of their profits because of the increased business they'd be gettin' because of our efforts. Kinda like a passive fund raiser.

Maggie's gin sing brownies sound like they'd be a hit also. Load 'em up with sugar, Maggie and we'll get even more profit sharing from the dentists. I'm guessing we won't have ta have any other fund raisers for quite a while.
geezer, ya musta read my mind about the interior color for the outhouse. I hadn't thought much about the exterior color, though. Red for danger would be appropriate, but it might also attract too much attention. Those revenooers are always lookin' for something out of the ordinary, and a cherry red outhouse would qualify.

Be careful with all that button poppin' Maggie. Some of us old coots could get pretty excited! But give the granddaughter hugs from us and let her know we're proud of her too!

Pass the jug. I got long winded and now I thirst!

good idea, geezer. We could call our candy, "The original saltwater hooch candy from Gastonia". Kind of a long name, isn't it? I don't know, we'd have to make the candy about 5" long just to get that name on the wrapper.
Sorry 'bout the chocolate mix-up. Here's a jar of vasoline.
Hey Magpie, congrats on your grand daughter's team's award. Did those flying buttons put an eye out anywhere? My ma always told me not to pop my buttons. Zits, yes, buttons, no.

Good question, Maggie. What color to paint the outhouse...mebbe brown on the inside. Brown might camouflage the occasional outburst. How 'bout a nice cherry red for the outside? Red is a warning color, of sorts.

I hear ya 'bout wastin' good hooch, BG. We may hafta...hey, wait! I've got it! We can make hooch candy to throw to the crowd!

Yes geezer I could use the green stuff in the brownies just for you. But I make the best too toll house brownies in the us. before toll house even had theirs! I also use 3 cups of chocolate chips that will give you the energy you will need to paint that out house real purity! So what colors are we using and when do we start the painting, hey BG I have never made gin sing brownies but I never back down from a challenge.

Well, Chris, ya opened a can of worms with that exlax ya got for geezer. He sure doesn't need it and now we'll never get the outhouse painted! Thank goodness he finished off all those little pieces of chocolate. Now two days of rumble gut and he'll be as good as new......but we still won't be able to get near the outhouse.

Neil Armstrong had bicycle races on the lunar landscape? I knew the school system was bad but I didn't think they revised that bit of history yet. Oh, well, we can raise a jug to him anyway!

James Garner float.......a good idea, but we wouldn't wanna waste any Miracle Hooch by using squirt guns. That would be alcohol abuse and the Lord knows none of us can abide abusin' alcohol!

Maggie, perhaps you could whip up a batch of ginseng brownies for the Gastonia Day parade. All those spectators would love ya forever!

Pass the jug. I gotta fortify myself for the geezer eruptions!

Hmmm....a float. Lemme think. When I finish thinkin' I think I'll ponder. Well, we could somehow get a James Garner tribute theme goin' with the float. We could all dress up like characters from Maverick an' get water pistols that look like six shooters an' fill 'em with Miracle Hooch to squirt into the gapin' yaws of bystanders.

OR....we could do sumthin' similar for Neil Armstrong, although I wasn't very happy with him cheatin' in all those bicycle races.

Now, about the outhouse paintin'. Too bad the zombies are encased in concrete, 'cause they'd be perfect for the task.

Hey, look! little pieces of soft chocolate! Mmmmm...these are good. They must be French. Eh Latch, or sumpthin' like that.

Uh oh.

geeze, we'll let you paint the inside. I unnerstand there's a new odor mitigating paint that's been developed just for outhouses. I think we oughta procure enough to put two coats on the inside. That should hold it for a while!

Are we gonna have a float in the parade for Gastonia Days? That's comin' up in a couple of weeks and since we're prominent citizens we oughta be represented. Time to put on the ole thinkin' caps and come up with something unique.

Pass the jug. I'm gonna toast Chris with that new batch of Miracle Hooch!

Snicker Snicker these will be like Alice B Tokless Brownies best ever! Pass the jug its gettin warm in the Kitchen today boys. May you all have a nice evening and remember if you can't up the jug, use your teeth!

Hi There Geezers

Good thing we put those oversized exhaust fans in the clubhouse when we rebuilt it. They work well under most of geezer's conditions but when he "purges" they are a little inadequate. Perhaps we oughta think about installing a couple of them in the outhouse. The only problem is that the local pollution control authority would cite us for air pollution.

Pass the jug. I gotta ponder letting a contract for exhaust fans!

Kohlrabi??? Vitamins??? no wonder we got sick! Ya can't put healthy stuff in hooch - it messes with the very chemistry of that fine elixir.

Gotta go purge it outta my system. Uh, y'all might want to avoid the general vicinity of the outhouse for a few hours.

Good morning geezers and gazetteers.

Magpie, do you cook it first? Mash them? I don't like to eat raw potatoes, but my younger sister did! She couldn't wait for me mum to cook them so she would sneak a slice out of the bowl, whilst (English in me) mum wasn't looking!

We'll have to ration the "fire-water" for geezer! We know the 'German-injun' in him has a ji-low tolerance for alcohol.

BJ, pass geezers share over here to my rocking chair. I'm stuck and I can't get up!

Good Morning Geezers

Now I understand why Maggie's hooch is so gooooood. But ya sure spend a lotta extra time on it, Maggie. geezer's Miracle Hooch is spectacular without all that extra cookin' and filterin', and we don't have ta wait as long to taste it. Mebbe you've got a lotta extra time on yer hands. Some of us are gettin' into our advancin' years and are trying to cram as much in as we can before we depart. Nice job on foolin' those %*%$(##&* revenooers, by the way.

Pass the jug. It's time to start the day's drinkin'!

You know we can not hold our liquer, sounds to me like it was stale or really jacked up to make you dream like they snicker snicker an under cover cop that's a hoot! Hey BG the secret it you run it once and filter it into a big jug, then pour it back in let it cook some more and filter it again for a smooth taste! Hey the wanna be cops were here earlier they were inspecting the place I just laughed and kept saying your gettin closer, oh your on fire, so hot! They got really mad at me one guys veins looked like they were going to pop, they were a little upset with me walked right past the rolls of hay out in the front of the property. One of them said I was a little touched in the head I laughed and yelled out that they were on top of it but they left and never found the hooch. Oh man I laughed so hard I cried pass th jug fellas I have a real thirst going on now! Ha they just rode by the house and they still missed the hooch snicker snicker who's the dummy now?

Coots, you'll nee to be sittin' for this. I have somethin' to tell ya an' it's gonna be a shock.

All these years we've been at the clubhouse and here on Riff Raft I've been an officer of the law, actin' undercover. That's right - I'm a revenooer. You're all under arrest. I have about 80 fellow cops outside, so you can come quietly, or we can riddle this scow with lead. What'll it be?

:::wakes up in a cold sweat:::

Holy crap! That was a freakin' scary dream. I gotta go get me some Miracle Hooch. I'm tellin' no one 'bout this nightmare.

Well, now I've done it! First I lost my teeth and now I've lost my mind! I feel like only half of me is here and the other half ain't talking! Know what I mean Vern? Vern you listening?
I just got a stimulus package in the mail. Addressed to Mr. D. McDuck! Yep that'd be me!
Magpie, I tried growing some Kemosabe one year. Didn't pan out so good.
