ELK FISHING? Yep! Can't Top This One, Huh Un! Nope!

We have a "saying" in our family, well, actually, we have a lot of "sayings" in our family.  The one I'm reminded of today is this:

WHOEVER TELLS THEIR STORY LAST ALWAYS TELLS THE BIGGEST......

Truth be told, it's infectous!  When I met my cousin Cheryl's husband, Jack, for the first time, I showed him a video of my son and I catching small mouth bass on a wilderness canoe trip.  The next night Jack showed me a number of humongous large mouth bass mounted in his home.  LIKE I DON'T KNOW YOU CAN BUY THOSE THINGS IN THRIFT STORES FOR CHUMP CHANGE!
 Wait til he comes to visit me.  I bought a singing "Billy Bass" in a Salvation Army Thrift Store for fifty cents and I'm going to tell Jack I not only caught it but I taught it to flop his tail and sing "I Wish You A Merry Christmas".  Un Huh!.

You see, the problem isn't just that Jack married my cousin in a little Methodist Church in Campbell's Creek, WV.  Uh, that's pronounced as one word, quick-like and comes out to sound like "Camel's Krick".  What's the point?  Well, being from that neck of the woods, he has obviously spent a lot of time in the outhouse just thinking up stories like this.  TOUGH COMBINATION TO BEAT.  I'll try!

THE GUY IN THIS STORY DOESN'T HAVE TO TRY!

His is the story of a first time fly fisherman who caught a bull elk on the Big Thompson outside of Estes Park.  The story made the front page of the Denver Post.




CAUGHT HIM AN ELK!

Calls to mind another of our family "sayings"

DUMBER THAN A BANK MULE!
You have to be my age and from the coal mining area of WV to understand.



GOTTA FAMILY SAYING YOU'D LIKE TO SHARE?
Tell me.  I'll share it with the other readers.

We laughed out loud! You are a nut, but we love you just the same, Cousin! I bought Jack a lifetime fishing license this year.
