Those of you that visit my website/blog on a regular basis know that a large percentage of my writing is serious, about serious subject matter, like “The Potholes of Ensenada”, or what’s happening around the world, i.e., my take on politics, the plight of the Palestinian people, or other serious subject matter. Once in a while however, I’ll write something that to me, is just plain fun to write, and hopefully funny for my readers as well. That brings me to “Fly Fishing Still Waters”.
Once, when I was in my early thirties, I was awarded a really nice Fish-Fileting Knife, you know, those really sharp thin-bladed knives especially designed for cutting up fish. Along with that wonderful knife, (that I ended up using to cut and trim the sod that I was putting down in my front yard that summer), they also presented me with a book (which I never read) titled “Fly-Fishing Still Waters”.
These two wonderful prizes were given to me for achieving the highest score during three days of golf, presented to me at a Golf Tournament Dinner & Awards Banquet with about a hundred dudes in attendance (telling me to change to a different sport, and I still laugh about it to this day). The title of the book, “Fly Fishing Still Waters”, came to mind tonight as I was running some water in the kitchen sink to wash out my French-Press Coffee Pot.
Old farts will understand this. When you are an old fart like myself, wither it’s turning on the tap water to rinse out your coffee pot, walking by a water fountain in a mall that is quenching someone’s thirst at that moment you walk by, or……Fly Fishing in a rapidly flowing stream somewhere, you ARE potentially going to piss in your pants. Moral of the story? I’m not at that point yet, but for the rest of you old farts, if you need to wear “Depends”, it’s OK, no one will find out from me. Oh, and that dude that wrote, “Fly Fishing Still Waters”? He must have been an old fart like me, with or without “”Depends”.
My next serious article that I’m still writing, is interesting and I hope thought-provoking as well, asking the question, “What if Trump’s really not crazy, but Sly like a Fox”. Watch for it tomorrow.

Monetary Donations to The International Tabernacle of Abiding Dudeism, ITAD-NAO are TAX-DEDUCTIBLE, (excluding Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Home-Made Venison Jerky, that’ll be our little secret)
90% of your donations (except for the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and the Home-Made Venison Jerky) will go directly to verifiable sources that provide humanitarian aid around the world beginning with those legitimate groups that give aid to Palestine and the Palestinian people. Other immediate areas and causes that will receive financial support from ITAD-NAO will be legitimate groups that aid the people of Yemen, and other known areas around the world that are in crisis. In addition, ITAD-NAO will also contribute directly and indirectly to the needs right here in the good ole’ USA, like helping the Homeless, and the poorest of the poor achieve better stations in life.
The remaining 10% will be used to maintain the ITAD-NAO Website once it is programmed and fully operational. In its final configuration it will be ENCRYPTED with an encrypted “Communication Suite” for Email, Texting and Video-Chatting. A significant part of the “Communications Suite” will be the ability to include 10 to 15 “Practitioners” (not Parishioners) in Conferencing in groups, and perhaps large convention-type assemblies via closed-circuit TV and the website portal. This is the #1 priority for ITAD-NAO.
If any attorneys happen to read this, we do need your assistance to help with all the legal aspects that we need help with.
If you happen to be a Millionaire or Billionaire and you feel inspired to help us financially, please contact us at your earliest convenience for an in-depth discussion on how we feel our organization can help change our world and it’s people in a very significant and positive way.
If you happen to be a regular visitor to this website and you not only enjoy my writing but you are also “Like-Minded” with my concerns and my efforts, please “Click” on the PayPal “Donate” button below. It will take you to the ITAD-NAO PayPal donation form. One dollar, or 25 thousand dollars will be equally appreciated, AND used for ITAD-NAO project, and like was previously mentioned, your donation is 100% Tax-Deductible. (The Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and the Home-made Venison Jerky will be eaten by the ITAD-NAO staff).
Thank you one and all,
Some immediate needs. On a volunteer basis for now, we need a WEBMASTER who can work on the ITAD-NAO website, we need a person skilled in “Crowd-Funding” and “Director of Charitable Giving”, we need an attorney to help in the legal matters for ITAD_NAO, including setting us up as a tax-exempt “Church”, we need a Certified CPA to insure the financial integrity of the ITAD-NAO organization, we need a “Chief of Security”, we need a film-maker, first for YouTube, eventually for larger platforms, plus a few other positions. We believe that somewhere down the road, a Billionaire will step up to the plate and write a check for $50 Million or so, which will turn those volunteer positions into paid positions.
For my faithful readers that are aware that I’m finally working on “The Dead Armadillo” story, like say, a Producer, or a Director, or a Screenwriter or someone or a company that desires to option my novel, you can contact me at any time, night or day. If you are a one of those faithful readers that wish to read and follow my progress as I work on this novel, I will be posting updates as a PDF file on every new post on this website/blog. Here’s the latest of “The Dead Armadillo”
