The lights of Branson — and a little trout fishing

December 17, 2011

Hello, everyone. Where has the year gone? Can you believe its almost Christmas?
Lots of families are taking the drive up to Branson, Mo., to check out all the cool lights, and do a little shopping while they are there.
For all you guys out there that hate to shop, here's an idea. While the ladies are shopping, head over Taneycomo River and do some trout fishing. I recently filmed a show there. I spent the day on the water with my longtime friend, retired professional angler John Sappington.

Highway partially closed due to accident

December 16, 2011

State Highway 59S is currently closed to all but small passenger vehicles. A semi, which was transporting a wide load, has the roadway blocked after the load shifted.
A partial lane remains open as Law Enforcement and work crews wait for a crane to arrive from Tulsa to replace the load onto the trailer.
According to witnesses, small cars and trucks can pass through the partially obstructed lane but semi tractor trailers are blocked from traveling through the narrow lane.

The Marsh Way of making college bowl predictions

December 16, 2011

Contrary to many swine epidermis prognosticators, I have a strange way of predicting scores. I have a unique way of reading the corns and bunions on my feet, and here's what my feet say with this year's bowl games — and I did not make up some of this year's bowl game names, really!
Famous Idaho Potato Bowl — This was formerly the Humanitarian Bowl on the blue turf at Boise State University. It's Utah State vs. Ohio. I think the Mid-American Conference will prevail as the Bobcats beat the Aggies.

I got run over by a minivan Wednesday night

December 16, 2011

You've heard the famous Christmas song, “Grandma Got Run Over by Reindeer.” Well, I was singing a different version on Wednesday night — “I Got Run Over by a Minivan.”
I went to Walmart Wednesday night because my wife, Jenny — a.k.a., “Princess” — needed a few things.
We pulled up into the parking lot. It just started to rain. I was in Walmart for about an hour shopping and visiting with an ol' friends Bobby Heavener, Roger Mattox and Kathy Dalton.
