Blind Pig & The Acorn's Week Of The Fish

 

Remember The Week Of The Crow? Later this summer I’ll be hosting the Blind Pig & the Acorn’s Week of the Fish. Got a fish story to contribute or maybe a photo of the best fish you ever caught?

I’m not promising I’ll lay on my back and film fish for you like I did the crows-but I do promise it’ll be a week of fun with a few giveaways thrown in too.

——————————-

Tipper

p.s. I hope no one tells The Deer Hunter I used such a silly photo of him-but I know it’s only a matter of time before he hears it from somebody.

    Tipper,
    This ain’t something that happened to me but rather it is a joke. I bet most have heard it but, there’s some that ain’t.
    Oh, by the way, before I tell this joke, I’m sure after seeing the picture of the Deer Hunter, you can see why those twins are so pretty. They also look alot like their Momma.
    Well, one time this fella went down to the lake to fish. There was this older man sitting there and every minute or two he would jerk a fish out. After a while this guy decided to put his hook and line closer to the old guy. It didn’t work so he moved closer. The old guy kept jerking fish out. Finally, he said, “What is your secret, I’m right next to you and we both are using minnows and I ain’t got a bite yet?” The old man spit his baccer juice out and said “Hand me one of your minnows son.” He did and the old man reached in his pack and got out a fruit jar that had clear clear liquid in it and screwed the lid off and poured it full of the liquid. Then he dipped the little minnow in the liquid and let it swim around in a while. “Son, now you try this and see if this works.” Well, he cast his line and the minnow back into the water and BAM! He caught a fourteen pound large mouth bass. That little minnow had nabbed that bass right behind the head and wouldn’t turn it loose!

    Tipper,
    I wish I could come to Asheville to see your movie. I wish I could come to Asheville just to come to Asheville! It’s already as hot as a three dollar pistol here in Florida. I always seem to figure out some way to make to the mountains during this time of the year. Don’t have anything planned…as of yet.
    Congrats on the movie!!

    I’ve just recently begun reading this blog and it gives me many delightful moments of sheer enjoyment! I was raised in the Southwest/West and am now in Alaska having one heck of a second childhood. But for some reason since way back, I have been drawn to many things Appalachian (I think it got really fired up when I stumbled upon the Foxfire series back in the 70s.) My father’s folks are from NC and I grew up hearing a lot of the things you write here and I’ve done extensive genealogy on the family which pulls me in even further.
    Anyway, all this to say that I appreciate and enjoy and look forward to reading so much more of this blog! Please let us all know if a DVD of this movie becomes available for purchase. I think my third childhood will have to include a personal experience in Appalachia!

    Oh no, wish we could be there, but alas we will be in the middle of a week in the National Park camping with friends. I’ll be interested in a DVD as well.

    Tipper: Your post has made my sad day brighter. Our Joey was born on June 3, 1965. Just after he had celebrated his 17th birthday, he was killed in a car accident on June 6, 1982.
    I wish we could make it to Ashville next weekend. This past weekend we were over in Blairsville, GA, to celebrate the grand opening and RIBBON CUTTING ceremony of the Bryon Herbert Reece Society ‘homeplace’ – which is more beautiful than you can imagine. We were the lucky ‘invited guests’ of our dear friend, Ethelene Dyer Jones! Of course the many big motor cycles that zoom up and down the crooked road tend to spoil the tranquility – but they PASS QUICKLY!
    Next weekend we will be up in Kentucky to make a meaningful presentation on ‘WRITING YOUR FAMILY HISTORY’! The best part is that I made so many contacts with ‘history writing’ folks this past weekend in GA! Of course I hope to share their suggestions with those Kain Tucky folks!
    Best of luck in your ‘climb’ to fame!
    Love, Eva Nell

    Tipper-you might want to take the picture of the Deer Hunter off today’s post or else provide the lady readers (lookers) with an easy way to clean drool off of a keyboard.

    I got so excited thinking about the movie and my fishing ‘er stories I forgot to remind the folks. Tipper has CDs available to tide you over ’til she replaces the playlist. I have one that makes the drive to work and back a pleasure.

    Asheville is an hour away and I am not getting around so good lately so I’m sad to say I’ll have to wait for the DVD too.
    With the cast of Mountain Mavens it has, this film is bound to be a hit.
    Fishing Stories? Do they have to be the whole truth and nothing but the truth? Even the best of fishermen feel the need to embellish their tales.

    good day Tipper—sure hope us not in your area will some day be able to see the movie you in the mountains received an award for –and I do hope there is a way for the music player to get fixed for I use that music every day to get a goin’.

    I think it is a rather ‘manly’ picture. Time to get the music player fixed; the music was missed. I hope your film does well; maybe there will be another way for me to see it. I’m not too close to Ashevill.

    Tipper–I reckon there’ll come a time, probably sooner rather than later, when I can say: “Why I knew Tipper and the twins back when they were just ordinary mountain folks rather than big-time celebrities.”
    As for the Deer Hunter, I didn’t even notice him; just the bass.
    I look forward to the week of the fish but have to wonder if you’ll be telling about your perditious piscatorial ways. Remember confession is good for the soul and besides, the statute of limitations has run out on your predilections for poaching. (I wonder if all those $5 words starting with the letter p, together with the mischief they allude to will stir any questions from your readers–sorry, I just have to pick on you a bit every now and then).

    tipper, Truman and I are so proud of you and the girls. I have listened to the wilson Brothers sing and play on the radio and different places. Tell them hello.
    Perhaps one day your girls will grace Hollwood screen.
