Texas Flag Chaos

From the looks of it, it seems the Texas flag up at the courthouse has been caught on the top of the flag pole which apparently prevents it from being lowered by the use of cables. It's been that way for a couple of days. Why the locals aren't rioting is beyond me. At first I thought it was a distress signal and I almost stormed that place like Santa Anna. But I stopped halfway once I realized what was going on (but after I had already ripped the buttons of my dress shirt in preparation for battle.) Those colors don't run. But they can get all whopperjawed.

I got the Whopperjawed combo at Burger King for lunch yesterday.

I wish them Olimpicks would go back to the days when they competed nude with their hard firm throbbing bodies glistening with alabastard oil or somethin.

Those were the days.

Did you have on a skin tight suit underneath with a "BG" on it? I'd love to see that!

Old Santie Annie might have won the battle when he stormed into that place, what was it called, that place down in San Antone, oh yeah, SeaWorld. But you do remember what eventually happened to him, don't you? Wound up in the belly of that killer whale, Shamu

I can see you skipping up to the court house now screaming,"Fix our flag you savages."

Actually, the county judge's office is likely the place that takes care of seeing that the flags are put out appropriately - so if somebody wants.

Most don't know, but the owner of this blog is a "relative" of the county judge.

Lucky him.

Bill McElhaney is a great guy!

Wouldn't being related to the judge be a conflict of interest when Skippy has to argue a case before him?

11:30 - might be, but it won't happen. County Judges don't do cases like District Judges do.

Case closed.

That's correct 6:30 AM--The County Judge's position is now basically the head administrator of the county (along with the Commissioners). He can still hear courtroom cases, but rarely does. The County Court at Law judge hears county-level cases (along with a fair amount of district-level cases). Not a criticism, though, because it is a FULL TIME job the way it is, now! As a county-level elected official, I think we are very fortunate to have Bill McElhaney in that position, because he has shown a lot of common-sense and level-headness during his term, so far!

Amen to your last statement 10:53. Part of the success of McElhaney's position in the county is that he had good business experience before becoming judge.

Frankly, I think that should be a requirement of anybody running for judge or commissioner. After all, they run the business of the county and that is a huge job!
