Willy got all caught up in politics and forgot that he needed a new set of binoculars to keep an eye out around the place. You see Willy dont want any coyotes getting to the sheep.
Well, Willy done learned a while back when you need to buy something you can go to that Internet thing(you know - the one Al Gore invented) and find about anything you want.
Well Willy's research brought up steiner binoculars as the ones to look at.
Willy done found these great binoculars at Eagle Optics!
Willy done looked around and Willy knows that Eagle Optics is the best place to buy binoculars.
Why does Willy think that well because Eagle Optics has great low Prices, and outstanding Customer Service. Willy believes that Eagle Optics has about the best selection that Willy has ever seen.
And best of all Willy done seen that they have free financing if Willy orders over $200. Well Willy done got his eye on those Steiner Merlin 10x50 Binoculars. Wow with those things, Willy can look way past them coyotes over to the neighbors Farmhouse. Willy wonders if it is wash day. The neighbor sure does a good job of hanging out those clothes.

Willy got all caught up in politics and forgot that he needed a new set of binoculars to keep an eye out around the place. You see Willy dont want any coyotes getting to the sheep.
Willy done got all riled up over Ms. Hillary looking pretty good in the beginning of this presidential campaign. Willy done found quotes from others that are pretty good about the evil lady.
David Geffen, has recently slammed Bill and Hillary. Geffen, it may be recalled, had been a strong supporter of the Clintons in the 90s, but recently endorsed Obama’s campaign. Geffen’s remarks included:
“Everybody in politics lies, but they [the Clintons] do it with such ease, it’s troubling,”
“God knows, is there anybody more ambitious than Hillary Clinton?”
“Obama is inspirational, and he’s not from the Bush royal family or the Clinton royal family,”
“I don’t think anybody believes that in the last six years, all of a sudden Bill Clinton has become a different person,” and
“It’s not a very big thing to say, ‘I made a mistake’ on the war, and typical of Hillary Clinton that she can’t. She’s so advised by so many smart advisers who are covering every base. I think that America was better served when the candidates were chosen in smoke-filled rooms.”

Giant sinkhole in Guatemala swallows several homes, at least 3 people missing

GUATEMALA CITY — A giant sinkhole swallowed several homes and at least one truck early Friday in Guatemala City, and officials said at least three people had been reported missing.
Hugo Sanchez, Guatemala’s national disaster coordinator, said emergency officials couldn’t attempt to rescue anyone overnight because the 330-foot-deep hole was very unstable. Loud noises and the smell of sewage rose from the hole, and the earth around it shook.
“I was in my house, and I started to hear booming and I felt the earth shaking, and then I realized that the homes had collapsed” into the sinkhole, said Maria Rivas, who lives nearby.
Immediately after the sinkhole appeared before dawn, police patrolled the neighborhood, using megaphones to urge residents to stay in their homes.
They later evacuated 1,000 houses and moved the residents to temporary shelters in schools and a police building.
The director of Guatemala’s Seismology, Vulcanology, Meterology and Hydrology Institute, Eddie Sanchez, said the sinkhole was likely caused by a leaky sewer main and recent rains.This article was published Friday, February 23, 2007.

Willy dont always agree - but here is what is being said.
Steak Night at the Deer Camp - A South Arkansas Message to George W.
by John R. Bomar
Hey George, I hate to have tell you this, son, but they’re talking bad about you out at the deer camp. That’s real bad. When you’ve lost the deer-camp-boys you’re in big trouble around here.
You see, these are the real good ol’ boys, the ones who make up the backbone in this part of the woods. They’re the ones who build the houses, sell the insurance, install the plumbing and fix your air conditioner when it goes on the blink. They’re just regular, hard working Joe’s trying to make life a little better and get ahead. And up to now they’ve done pretty good. Many of them own their own businesses and are members of the chamber and pay a lot of taxes – a lot of taxes. And a whole bunch of them read the papers and keep up with what’s going on in the world.
George, they’re a calling you a liar. Yep, they are. And if it’s one thing they don’t cotton to, it’s a liar, George. They know liars; they’ve had liars for employees and dealt with liars in trying to do businesses. “Cain’t’ trust a liar” just about sums it up around here, George.
Now, if you’re a known liar we’d give you a nod in passing, but we wouldn’t stop to talk. We’d try to be sociable enough if forced to be around you, but we’d leave as soon as possible. Out at the deer camp we’d mostly try and leave you out of the conversation, but if your name came up we’d all give each other that look that says; “yea, we know about dealin’ with him.”
That’s bad George. Real bad … real hard to get over around here, George.
I guess it’s partly cause we come from pioneer stock. Most of our people moved here from Tennessee and Alabama, and before that Georgia and the Carolinas and some from Virginia. We come from a long line of survivors, George. Only the survivors got this far. They survived by their wits and hard, honest work, with a little luck thrown in. Excuse’ me for saying so, but they also learnt’ real early how to separate the chicken salad from the chicken s****, George. They watched out for what people did rather than pay too much attention to what they said. Their Grandpas taught em’ that.
And, oh yea, these ol’ boys, they really don’t like being played for a fool when they’ve kindly given you the benefit of the doubt. On a scale of one to ten George, that’s a ten.
Yep, deer-camp-boys are proud of their roots and try and hold on to the old ways, as much as they can nowadays. They know the understanding and teachings of their Grannies come hard learned. They’re hardscrabble folk, George, and they judge a man by his handshake, the honesty in his eye and the sincerity in his voice. They’re nice enough when you first meet, that’s the way their Mama’s raised them, but they don’t really take you in till you’ve proved yourself. You know that puddin’ George, its proof tells the tale.
Well, guess that’s about it, friend. Just thought I’d pass this along in case you was interested. Cause when you lose the deer-camp-boys around here, George, there ain’t much left.

Someone ask Willy what he did on Valentine's Day. Well Willy had a great Valentine's Day! Cause you know that Willy is a Romantic guy. To start -Willy cooked a wonderful breakfast of toast and coffee for the little lady. (Much like he does a lot of mornings.) But Willy put a little twist to the breakfast! The toast was in the shape of a Valentine's Heart! How romantic is that.
Well then later on in the day, Willy picks up some flowers and personally delivers to the wonderful lady he is married to and picks her up some lunch since she is stuck at the office. Is that romantic or what.
Then for the afternoon, Willy's wonderful wife has had a little problem with her car and Willy sits at the service shop most of the afternoon getting it fixed. ?Romantic or not Romantic?
But all Willy can say about the day is that it was wonderful. Willy has a wonderful wife who has graciously and lovingly put up with him for over 28 years.
That is romance in the making.
This is a big 10-4 Willy

Willy had a good visit last week when his nephew and wife came through town on their way to Nashville. Nephew, who can do a little of anything, he works hard by day but also has a lot of talent to throw at you the rest of the time. Thought he might just stay in Nashville and sing. But no, he just did his job and went back to Texas. On his visit here, Willy showed Nephew how Willy spends spare time just messing around with this blog thing. Well, hot dog holler. He done went back and started his own blog as Panhandle Poet. Check him out. You might find that his wanderings, and wonderings might be interesting. Go figure - two Aggies - a hillbilly and a poet out there blogging on the Internet.
Life is good - 10-4 Willy

2 pounds large shrimp
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground pepper
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons bourbon
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 cup each chopped celery and fennel
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
3 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup basmati rice
1/2 teaspoon each dried rosemary and thyme
8 tablespoons heavy cream
1. Cook the shrimp: Peel, devein, and — reserving 16 whole shrimp — coarsely chop remaining shrimp, reserving shells. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large Dutch oven over high heat. Season shrimp with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook chopped shrimp until just opaque. Add remaining oil and shrimp shells to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until shells begin to brown. Add 1/4 cup bourbon and cook, stirring constantly, until reduced by half. Transfer shells and liquid to a bowl and set aside.
2. Make the soup: Add 1 tablespoon butter to the pan and melt over medium heat. Add celery and fennel and cook for 10 minutes. Add onions, garlic, and remaining salt and pepper and cook until onions are soft. Add tomato paste and cook until it begins to coat the bottom of the pan. Add remaining butter and melt. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly, to incorporate. Add wine, 5 cups water, broth, rice, herbs, and shrimp shells and bring to a simmer. Cook until rice is tender — about 35 minutes. Run soup and shells through a food mill, discard solids, and return to pan set over low heat. Add chopped shrimp, cream, and remaining bourbon and cook until heated through. Melt remaining butter in a small skillet over high heat and sauté the reserved shrimp until cooked through — about 4 minutes. Divide soup among 8 bowls, garnish with shrimp, and serve.

Hillbilly-Willy loves him some Valentine's Day. This is a chance for Willy to be sweet to that little lovely lady that takes care of him all year long. Willy may take her down to "Possum's Diner" and feed her a little Chicken and dumplins that night. Willy may even stop by the old local grocery store early in the day and pick up a couple of roses for the little woman.
But since she is off at work during the day at the shirt factory, Willy is going to make sure when he stops by the store for the roses that Willy will also pick up the 43rd annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue that comes out on February 14th. (Did I say that Willy Loves Valentine's Day!)
And while Willy is in Town getting all of these nice things for his wife for Valentine's day, Willy is going to stop by the Cell Phone store and learn how to put Cell Phone Wallpapers of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue models on his cell phone. This way while the little woman is at the shirt factory and Willy is out fishing, Willy can look at these lovely ladies all day long cause in instead of just looking at the actual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Willy and you can see the beautiful SI models at any time by downloading cell phone wallpapers from SI Mobile. These beautiful pictures come straight from the photo shoots featured in the magazine, and at only $1.99 each and available for all major wireless carriers, Willy going to get him some of them pictures.
Did Willy mention that over 50 supermodels are plasted all over that site. Willy went over to that site and saw lovely models such as Victoria's Secret model Heidi Klum, Marisa Miller, Ana Beatriz Barros, tennis star Maria Sharapova, Molly Sims and 2005 SI cover girl Carolyn Murphy. (Did Willy say that the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue comes out on Feb. 14th - Valentine's Day!)
Did Willy say that you can get what they call Classic SI cover girl wallpapers from past years such as three-time cover girl Elle Macpherson ('87, '88, '94) and Kathy Ireland ('92, '94). SI Mobile users can also download video clips from the photo shoots, "video ringers" (ringtones with video), animated screensavers and more. What more can Willy ask for, Pretty Women Pictures, video clips that come on when my phone rings and Valentines Day with my Little Woman.
Did Willy mention that he loves Valentine's Day and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue
