It’s Lunch Time my Friend 9.8.11

I didn’t have time to put one up last week and over the last couple of weeks people have been writing like crazy. This is going to be one of those times where you just go to the site, start at the top and work your way down. Sit back, relax, nibble on your lunch and enjoy.

Quill Gordon out in Vermont got nailed pretty good by Irene. If nothing else, read the second one on the list, After Irene.

The View from Fish in a Barrel Pond

My friend Bob Long, Jr. has been manipulating photo’s and writing out on the South Side of Chicago. Always worth a peek and a read.

Erin out in Colorado, worth reading every word. Always is.

Mysteries Internal

Owl Jones is, well, Owl Jones. You just have to wade through them. Some of the funniest stuff out there. If the outdoors could be funny.

Mike’s been recapping his trip out west and they’re all worth reading. And the pictures are worth a peek.

Mike’s Gone Fishin’… Again

Even if you don’t hunt, this group of writers is worth a read.

Mouthful of Feathers

Lastly, you gotta eat. Everyone likes to eat. I’ll bet you never thought of half this stuff though.

The 3 Foragers

All right, that’s it. Go back to work.

It’s Lunch Time my Friend 8.24.11

Why, look at that, it is almost lunch time.

The summer doldrums seem to be coming to an end. In the past week all the writers have come back to life and have been typing away like crazy. Others have been out taking picture of damn near everything.

This is a tough one.

We’ll start with Dale Bowman from the Sun Times wondering about how an outdoor writer winds up with only 1 out of 4 kids taking to the outdoors naturally.

Bob Maciulis, publisher of Outdoor Notebook, also writes for Aurora’s Beacon News. He recently did a nice write up on our local waterways.

Rivers are the Lifeblood of Illinois

Bob Long, Jr.’s photos and words continue to be intriguing.

This is where all writing and photographing hell broke loose. I think the best I can do is make it a little easier on you. You won’t have to go over to my sidebar and start clicking on things. Just go down this list.

The links will take you to the sites, then just start reading, looking and scrolling down. Some real gems here. Reading, looking, fishing, hunting and wandering around are all pretty well covered.

There’s a good chance you won’t get through them all today, so hang onto this for the next couple of days. Will give you something to do on those lunch breaks.

A Rural Journal

I know, I know, I dumped a lot on you this week.

Don’t blame me, I’m not the one doing all the writing and photo’s. Okay, maybe some of it.

Doesn’t mean you have to go read them all in one hour. You know you can’t go surfing all afternoon, the IT guys do monitor your keystrokes you know. So just save it for the next few days, take your time and savor what’s here.

Will be worth it in the long run.

It’s Lunch Time my Friend 7.20.11

Well, if you’re reading this right about your lunch time and you’re in the Chicago area, it’s probably about 95 degrees out there right now.

You could go wander across the parking lot to your car, get in it, go wander around looking for someplace to grab a bite to eat. You might toy with the idea of sitting out in the sun somewhere as you nibble on your lunch, but that would make you an idiot and you’re not an idiot, are you?

No, you’re probably sitting comfortably in your air conditioned cubicle munching on a Power Bar from the vending machine and looking for something interesting to read. Why, here you go!

In no particular order:

Pre-Picnic Pescador Parlance

A Toast to the Unknown Guide

Heat Wave Fishing – Pressing My Luck

Irony Appreciation Day

Bad Habits

Sunday. Lethargic. Fishing.

Almost Heaven

All right, that’s probably too much.

“Thanks, but I’m going to be eating at my desk today, I’ve got a few things I need to get done.”

Fact of the matter is, you’d rather put a bullet in your head than listen to still another episode of “Little Joey goes Pee-Pee in the Toi-Toi all by Hisself.”

May as well read something.

Almost forgot that Owl Jones is making his way across the U.S. to go fishing. Click around and play catch up.

Going to Montana Soon, Going to be a Dental Floss Tycoon (Okay, I elaborated a bit. Couldn’t help myself).

Otherwise, in no particular order . . . .


Homestead Rhubarb

I really need to get out more.

Time to Fire up the Smoker

A Second Date

DPR Bass

That’s probably too much to read, so take a long break and look busy.

Little Joey went Poo-Pee in the Toi-Toi recently and do you really want to hear all about that?

It’s Lunch Time My Friend 7.7.11

It’s one of those days you’re feeling a little lazy, don’t feel like putting up with crowds on the street or in whatever food joints near work. You’ll be sitting at your desk through lunch today.

May as well have something interesting to read while you sit there. At least I thought they were interesting.

Eat, You’ll Feel Better

A Story not about Fishing

1980’s Kind of Style

Dog Days

The Small Town River

A Quiet Rest of the Week

Okay, that’s enough reading material. I’m going to try to do this once a week, but no promises. Knowing me, the day will be random and the time won’t be anywhere near actual lunch time.
