Pray for the non believer
Pray for the non believer

Pray for the non believer

To navigate the twisted trails
Pray on him, the golden light not shine
And pray the guard dogs lose the scent
The snakes find shelter in his ten...

Great book and very solid movie. I really enjoy most of Martin Cruz Smith's books but you have to have an appreciation for extremely dark humor.
William Hurt does a very good Arkady Renko. He more or less re-creates the role in Dark City which is one reason I like that one so much....

Not second tier at all IMO. I'm not really a Wes Anderson devotee but this one has an incredible cast, impeccable cinematography, and a quirky sense of humor that is just fun as hell. Sure, it's a Wes Anderson cliche fest...

Propeller flight BTR to IAH. Get to Houston and airport's closed due to severe weather with a tornado on the ground a few miles from the airport. So we circle for over an hour in the worst turbulence I've ever encountered. Without the seat belts there would have been injuries.
And the only bat...

One of the most talented bands ever assembled. Top 10 for me for sure, maybe top 5. I never saw Lowell George but I was at their first concert after his death and it was incredible. After that they were hit or miss in concert but still had the musical talent. Some of their albums post LG were ac...

We've got a couple of Sea Eagles and are satisfied with them. Bought them because they fit in the trunk so we can take them on long trips. And we've fished out of them a number of times. Not hard to do without hooking them and if you did there are 3 compartments so it's not going to sink. Been o...

We camped on the Tortugas and fished from a yak. Squid worked better for us than anything else. Mostly caught French Grunts (we were told), about as many as we wanted. I hope they were legal cause that was dinner on two nights. Not real big, our keepers were 10-11 inches probably.
