Non-beer drinkers listen to this!!!

Boudreaux, an 80-year-old South Louisiana Cajun, goes to the doctor for

his every year check-up.

The doctor is amazed at what good shape he is in and asks, "How do you

stay in such great physical condition, Boudreaux?"

"I stay in the swamp and I hunt and fish every day", said the old Cajun.

"Dat's why I'm in such good shape. I'm up well before daylight and out hunting

or fishing all day. I have a beer for breakfast and at lunch and wid my supper.

And, I have a shot of hooch before bed time. And, I say my prayers every night.

And all is well wid me."

Well", says the doctor, "I'm sure the prayers help, but there's got to

be more to it. How old was your father when he died?"

"Who said Pop is dead?"

The doctor is amazed. "You mean you are 80 years old and your father is

still alive? How old he is?"

"Pop be 100 next month," replied Boudreaux. "In fact, he hunted with me

dis mornin', and den we went to a beer joint for a while and had a few beers and

dat's why he's still alive. He is a tough Cajun man and he hunts and fishes

everyday, too."

"Well, the doctor says, that's great! But, I'm sure there's more to it

than that. How about your father's father? How old was he when he died?"

"Who said my Paw Paw's dead?"

Stunned, the doctor asks, "You mean you are 80 years old, your father is

100 and your grandfather is still living? Incredible! How old he is?"

"We tink 'bout 118." says the old Cajun. He likes his beer, too, but he

won't touch the hard stuff."

The doctor is getting frustrated at this point, "So, I guess your

grandfather went hunting and fishing with you and your father this morning,

too?"

"No, Paw Paw couldn't go dis time. He's gettin' married today."

At this point the doctor is close to losing it. "Getting married! Why

would a 118-year-old man want to get married?"

Boudreaux looked down at the floor and mumbled "Who said he wanted to?"

As I was driving back to the house Saturday in the Oro Fina area I saw where

a dozer had made some new tracks going down into an area that in the past had

some good gold....a lot of small steep hills...deep ravines brush chocked...

and a lot of jungle...so went back today(no rain)and put the Toyota in the

dozer tracks and went for it...the little hills are pretty steep but the

lockers in the rear diff. were working great....got about a mile in and found

myself at the top of the steepest hill...decision time...got out and did a

walk-about...the road going to the right goes to the left at the bottom to

join the road in front of the Toy...post-300-0-98938200-1294686145_thumb.jpg

I didn't know if I could get back up this hill or not but I could see where

this new road was turning and heading back to the main road about 1/4 mile

ahead...post-300-0-87794300-1294686250_thumb.jpgso down the hill I went...in

the second pic about 100 yards is a very small dip by some green bushes...

hiding in that dip was pic #3post-300-0-62368800-1294686376_thumb.jpgno way to

fill it in so....turned back to the steep hill...got lined up and got out

and locked the front hubs...got in put the tranny in #1...transfer in Lo...

the Toy didn't even spin one time...at the top had a cup of coffee till my

legs quite shaking then backtracked three ridges and beeped an old push...

no gold but some good fresh air...quiet moments...and love the Toy with her

new "lockers"....

Thank God for coffee breaks. Who would think a ditch like that would be hiding on a newly plowed patch? But looking again at it the rain may have washed it out almost as fast as it got plowed.

You got it AM....before the dozer went through there the area was pure

jungle...not even possible to walk through it...then the rains started

probably the same day the dozer was there and the hills are so steep

that the water really comes rolling down hill and out went the new fill

in dirt...no way could have I made it back out without the lockers...

and it was a loooonnnngggg waaaaayyyy to the nearest tractor!!!!

Stunning Photos of Lost Jungle Tribe

Stunning new photos taken over a jungle in Brazil reveal one of the last uncontacted tribal groups on the planet -- a

thriving, healthy community with baskets full of manioc and papaya fresh from their gardens.

post-300-0-44588400-1296604823_thumb.jpg

Men painted with red and black vegetable dye watch the Brazilian government plane that captured these remarkable images.

This man, painted with annatto seed dye, is in the community's garden, surrounded by banana plants and annatto trees

post-300-0-49084200-1296605113_thumb.jpg

A white pile of peeled manioc (also known as cassava) sits at left of the tribe, a staple part of the group's diet, providing starches. Bitter manioc is peeled, soaked, grated and turned into loaves of bread, Survival International said.

Husband DownA husband and wife are shopping in their local Wal-Mart.

The husband picks up a case of Budweiser and puts it in their cart.

'What do you think you're doing?' asks the wife.

'They're on sale, only $10 for 24 cans' he replies.

'Put them back, we can't afford them' demands the wife, and so they carry on shopping.

A few aisles further on along the woman picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket.

˜What do you think you're doing?' asks the husband.

'It's my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,' replies the wife.

Her husband retorts: 'So does 24 cans of Budweiser and it's half the price.'

Aloha guys,

I just could not stop myself from playing it several times. Sounded like the punk was being egged on by whoever was filming hoping to get some great video. BAM!! It was some awesome video watching that punk get his face re-arranged. Just further proof that with age comes knowledge and POWER for some guys and this guy had a mean right hook.

GRAY POWER IS ALIVE AND WELL IN AMERICA!:thumbsupanim

Aloha and keep em coming.

Lesson to be learned here ... Don't mess with the grey bearded veteran ... for he is well trained though many years ago ... but like riding a bicycle after years of not is comes right back ... This vet turned the other check and moved away from the punk and the punk persisted ... major mistake as the veteran did what he was trained to do when assaulted!... the vet lives today for a reason ... he trained, he persevered and he continues to "teach" those who do not want to believe! Don't mess with the best!

Interesting that you should point out that the Vet did give that punk a chance to back off BUT once again some kids think that by backing off you show weakness. HA! This old timer gave the youngster a chance BUT as usual they seldom learn until it is too late.

Aloha,

Stan ... In some ways we become more tolerant as we age ... but don't push to far! :) That punk learned the hard way ... he stepped over that imaginary line of tolerance ... and paid dearly for it ... then again did he learn! Oh ... and the bus driver ... he kicked the wrong person off the bus! Shame on him!

Have you ever wanted to walk across the bottom of the River, Lake or Ocean to see all the ships that have sunk? Well....

The Aral Sea was once the world's fourth-largest saline body of water. It has been steadily shrinking since the 1960s,

after the rivers that fed it were diverted by Soviet Union irrigation projects. And now it's almost gone leaving a desert

full of old shipwrecks.

Great eye for details Steve....a dredge for sure....also I wonder if the wrecks in the valley of the two mountain

ridges had to do with why so many wreck in that location.....
