Default I知 in Love.

It was that first glance, and the immediate second.
This is what I have been looking for.
I played it cool, waiting for the right time.
Our paths crossed more frequently.
The visage promising infinite delights and untold pleasures.
The timing was perfect. A full moon in the sky and a slight chill was in the air.
I decided to make my move.
I entered the door and stood transfixed, overwhelmed by the vision of beauty before me.
A shudder ran up my spine, my face flushed and I almost had an emission.















Bass Pro Shops.
Guns, bows, fishing and camping gear. Oh my.
I am in love.
I wandered around the store in a trance. Ogled the waterfall and fish tank and wondered if I could get one to fit in my house.
Boots, kayaks and golf clubs too.
I have to admit. It was a unique experience.
I didn稚 buy a d@mn thing but after I left the store felt a strong urge for a cigarette.

I was at the Cabelas in Wheeling West Va. a couple of weeks ago. It took 3 hours just to look through the store.

Amazing full wildlife mounts.

Just wait till you drop some dollars there, it cheapens the whole experience.


Bass Pro love you long time! You #1 shopper!

Yea, I almost dropped $9.00 for the hat shirt combo.
The check-out was a mess.
Next time I might pick up a hat and the easy-up sun shade.
West had better prices on kayaks though.

My wife HATES that place! I keep telling her that I only need to pick up a couple of things, just a quick stop. A couple hours later we leave. My 3 yr old (Brooke) loves the fish mall (as she calls it) Can't get her away from the boats and fish tank.

Yep. World Wide Sportsman, in Islamorada. Can't pass the place coming or going, without stopping for a few hours! They even have a replica, or more correctly a sister ship of Hemmingway's fishing boat 'Pilar', in the store, that you can board. Cool store, but can leave you feeling a little light in the wallet.

Shoot, you're lucky if you got out without spending any money! I have never left without dropping at least 2 Benny's!

SIGH.....headin' to Cabela's ourselves, this weekend ~

Tinmarine ~ I'm sorry the Adm. doesn't care for BPS. I'd rather hit a sporting good store than a mall ANYTIME. But I'm just weird that way ~
