Twas the night before Christmas.....

Postby jsmoke222000 » Thu Dec 23, 2010 8:58 pm

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all across the lake

Not a creature was stirring, not even the bait;

My waders were hung up in the garage with great care,

In hopes that when I put them back on, no spiders would be there;

The alarm clock was set, as I crawled into bed,

While visions of big trout danced in my head;

My clothes were laid out, with my shoes & my cap,

I’d soon slip them on, after a short little nap,

When out in the garage there arose such a clatter,

I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

Away to the back door I flipped on the light,

No one was walking off with my rods tonight.

The light popped on & what did I see

Two stinking raccoons starring right back at me,

What the hell were they doing & why were they here,

They had tore open my Gulp & spilled all my beer,

With a flick of the wrist, so lively and quick,

I threw open the door & grabbed me a stick.

Those coons took off runnin’ just as fast as they came,

I hollered & shouted & cussed them in vain;

What a mess they had made, those two little bastards,

They ripped open three beers, they must have been plastered.

From the door to the patio & all back to the wall

They tore into everything, my jerk jrs & all!

As I stood there & starred at the mess they had made,

I couldn’t help but laugh, cuz I was truly amazed.

Sand eels & crank baits & even my spoons,

I’ll never get this mess cleaned up, I’ll be here till noon.

Well it took me an hour, but I cleaned it all up,

And I calmed my nerves with some eggnog that I poured in a cup.

I crawled back into bed, but I still couldn’t sleep,

I remembered I had two Gulp shrimp in my pocket that those coons didn’t eat.

I gave up on my nap & got back up out of bed,

I put on my clothes & my hat on my head.

I sat down in my chair, put a shoe on each foot,

I heard a slight cough & looked up at my wife giving me the look!

What the hell are you doing, she wanted to know,

I said I’m doing the dishes & folding the clothes!

Her eyes got big & she said “Oh yeah, real funny”

“Now stop fooling around & come back to bed honey.”

She headed to the bathroom, I guess to go pee

She asked “What time is it?”, Uhhhhh a quarter till 3

I tried to divert her attention by brushing my teeth,

Until she got back in bed & drew the covers with her head underneath.

I slipped out the door as quietly as I could be,

Two hours later she called my phone & said “Where the hell are you at?” I replied… “Ummmmm…. LNG!”

She said “After I laid the law down, you still had to go?”

I told her “Fish On! I gotta go!”

I netted my fish & laid the monster down in my lap,

An 8 pound speckled trout, caught on a chrome Rat-L-Trap!

I heard my phone chirp “Text Message Received”, probably from my wife,

"Happy Christmas baby, enjoy the couch tonight!”
