ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!


Updating on completed novels over the last couple of months:

I finished William Forstchen's "One Second After" trilogy. The last of the trilogy, "The Final Day", was great, as was the entire series.

I completed my first Harlan Coben book - "Home" - good read for sure. Maybe more of his stuff waiting for me in the future.

A few more of Stephen King's works that I've finished up - "The Long Walk," "Roadwork," "The Running Man," and "Rage." All great as usual.

Completed "The Revenant" by Michael Punke. A great book, better than the flick, in my eyes.

Another King novel that I finished a week or so ago was "Firestarter." Enjoyed it.

Many of the books I've been reading are from an era before my own. The lingo, settings, fashion, vehicles, etc., are a hoot. I have to look much of this up to comprehend what they're actually referring to.

Just finished Cujo. Another King novel.

This book rocked. What a suspenseful book. Very much worth picking up!

Another one retired to the bookshelf. A good book. I have many to read that you fellas have mentioned over the years here. Much work to do.You cannot see attachments on this board.


This was a little different than my normal choices in reading, but after adjusting a little early on, it was ok.

Just finished this trilogy. Yes, I read it. I read all three back to back to back. Yep.

Subject matter was certainly something different for me. Comical how every female I encountered while going through these had read them already. These were not bad, but I'm so looking forward to starting something new.You cannot see attachments on this board.


Just finishing up with this one by John Ehle. Sad.

Isn't reading out of doors grand?

Yes, when weather and bugs permit.


So many people have seen movies that were adapted from the original written story. Like the movie? Imagine how much you'd enjoy the original, more detailed version. Read.

This is a great example. A very good, creepy story. Just finished it.

I enjoy catching the subtle hints and references to other King stories. This book mentioned Cujo, The Shining, Derry, and Jerusalem's Lot.

I have a habit of juggling several books at a time.  Gravity's Rainbow is a re-read.

Thread has taken an odd turn with Fifty Shades of Grey, Lenin, and Marx making an appearance.  Feel like there is a ironic dominance and enslavement theme trending here now.

Eating better, losing some poundage, team Dougfish diet.

Hiking lighter, smarter, scheming, losing some poundage.

Cutting back on dis,  0:0 , a wee bit of a problem. :laugh:

If you love the outdoors, birds/birding in particular, as I have always enjoyed, you'll love this book. A great, true, and inspiring adventure of a young man chasing his passion. Finished this earlier today.
