Chirpy And The Elderly Writer Fish For Catfish, And Drink Beer .

Updated on July 26, 2015

Created Friday, March 18, 2011

Chirpy and the elderly writer from the house trailer went camping , and fishing . Chirpy perched himself on the man's shoulder as the elderly soul set out catfish lines around midnight from his boat.

Chirpy asked the man why does he set out lines in the dark. The man said that his father use to fish this way a long time ago.

The elderly soul asked Chirpy why would he go fishing when he could be home with his sweet wife Shangri LA .

Chirpy told the writer that it was the right thing to do because he was concerned about him being alone , and he wanted to catch some fish for Shangri LA.

The writer said, " Thank you my friend, but you do not have to trouble you're self over me, and by the way, I like writing about you Chirpy, and you're dear sister, the Little Yellow Bird."

Chirpy replied, " Well I am glad to be of service to you because we will give you a lot to write about."

Chirpy asked the elderly man why does he write so much.

The writer said, " Maybe it just occupies me so I want become bored."

Chirpy said, " You write all those hubs so you can be occupied ? "

Chirpy said, " Why don't you do more cooking, I heard you're a great cook? "

The writer said, " I think I had to start drawing, and writing, cooking ,and playing music, to keep from thinking negative thoughts because I use to be a police officer .

Chirpy said, " It is good that you have wise thoughts."

The writer said, " Thank you."

" Mr. you sure are deep," said Chirpy.

The writer said, " You know what, maybe the world should know about the good qualities that you , and you're sister possess . "

The writer said , " What is it like to be a world class champion arm wrestler?"

Chirpy said, " It is kind of wonderful, and a little bit sad putting dudes in hospitals with injured arms , and wrists. I like to win big money. Shangri LA likes big money too. She is one sweet chick that girl. We have already saved our nest egg . "

The writer said," Be careful with money. Somebody might konk you in the head , and rob you. You better not advertise you're earnings so much because there are some real creeps in this crazy world just itching to steal money ."

Chirpy said, " Thanks for the advice, and I will be careful sir. I am going to learn karate, and send Shangri LA to karate school. "

The old soul said, " Now look who's talking wimpy."

Chirpy and the writer gave each other a macho bear hug.

The writer said, " Lets drive home, we don't need to fish any more. They sell catfish by the pound at the supermarket down the road, and the fish are not biting anyway."

The writer , and Chirpy went back to the old house trailer where their wives waited for them to bring home catfish.

Chirpy was a little woozy, and kind of tripped inside his Folgers can when he flew on the porch . He also went and threw up in his commode.

The writer, after drinking a beer, and a half went and laid down.

Shangri LA said, " So you're coming home drunk! Did you catch any cat fish ? "

Chirpy said, " Yeah we caught some cat fish precious heart, and I also bought a Pepperoni Pizza ."

Shangri LA said, " Yummy Yummy, and so good for the tummy honey! "

Chirpy said, " You know what, I am going to put the fish in the freezer right away. "

Shangri LA asked , " How is the writer feeling ? "

Chirpy replied, " I don't know sugar pumpkin, but he will be just fine if he does not get into the dog house for drinking beer too."

The writer put some fish in his freezer too to make it look like he caught some.

Everybody went to bed, and everyone got up, and out of bed on the right side the next morning.

      Thank You Dear Heart. All that really matters to me is writing, and having some nice friends like you. Numbers do not mean anything to me anymore. I don't care if they go up or down.

      I have taken your good advice. Instead of deleting some hubs, I no longer delete hubs that need improving, I unpublish them, and work on them, and the publish them again.

      I tried a million ways to Sunday to try to get my hub scores back up, but nothing worked so I just stopped caring, and stopped worrying about it.

      When people do absolutely nothing wrong, and stuff happens to them anyway that just plain kicks rips a bang out of a monkey's behind.

      I still have my since of humor. God Bless You.

      I didn't get the usual email to tell me this was published or else I missed it, but I'm glad I searched your hubs and found this. This is one of the best stories you've done! All that dialogue is hard to do and you did great.

      All of our scores are suffering right now because of the change in traffic from Google. It's a mystery how else they keep score but you have nothing to worry about, everyone loves your stories!!!
