Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • I still believe that triple murder (?) in Dallas on Friday is the craziest story ever. If you're a woman (or a man, for that matter) and you've been kidnapped from you home a couple of days before, do you hang out there by yourself?
  • The two long runs in the Cowboys game on Friday were surreal.(They were the 3rd and 4th longest TD runs ever given up by the Cowboys.)
  • How could you leave the Cowboy game on Saturday after the game but before the final ceremony to shut down the old stadium?
  • Hey, now from Saturday night.
  • Started to head to the mall on Saturday and then suddenly gave up on the idea. The beat down factor overwhelmed me.
  • Watched some of Midnight Express again last night. Pretty, pretty good.
  • I'm getting interested in Facebook although I can't say I understand everything that is going on.
  • Some folks in the office told me "not to eat too much" before I got to work today because there was a "big surprise" awaiting. If I don't see Hooters girls with wings in a second, I'm going to be pretty disappointed.
  • Bacon.
  • I wanted to go to the movies this weekend but there was absolutely nothing that I wanted to see.
  • June Cleaver is an amazing 93 today.
  • The older The Beaver got, the less entertaining Leave It To Beaver was.
  • The AP has released its Top Ten Stories list but I'm always disappointed by it. I mean. This year's has generic entries like "Oil Prices" and "Sarah Palin." I'd like it much more if the list were of events (you know, things that would require a breaking news sounder.)
  • My favorite sad Christmas song.

Barry:

You have used that pic before. We need new bot chics.

It is 7 miles from my house to Texas Stadium. It took us 2-1/2 hours to get there and park. Then the cowboys played like a 2nd Rate High School Team. We left with 3 minutes to go. Got home before the game was over and watch the rest on TV.

"Bot chicks"? Sounds kinky.

Bacon- just ONE more reason to know the muzzies are full of crap.

Milk? good grief, does this country need any more 'love me because I take up the butt and I'm flamboyent' stories?

Sheesh

I saw an update on a news website from another state on the Dallas triple murder/suicide/whatever. It stated Eric Hansen, son of sportscaster Dale Hansen, was "dating" Mrs. Geis and she told him she was divorcing her husband. Mr. Geis told authorities he was not aware of a pending divorce. I dare WFAA to report that info. The whole deal is just weird.

"I still believe that triple murder (?) in Dallas on Friday is the craziest story ever."
I got money that sez the husband staged his own assault to throw suspicion elsewhere. Any takers?

"The two long runs in the Cowboys game on Friday were surreal."
Both of those plays looked like something you would see at a high school game. Not sure they deserve to be in the playoffs

"Watched some of Midnight Express again last night."
Oooohhhhh, Billlieeee!

"Bacon."
Six degrees of breakfast

8:29 - Do we really need any more comments on movies by people who haven't seen the movie?

Sheesh back at your homo-phobic self.

My favorite old sad Christmas song
'Memory of an Old Christmas Card'
by the late Jim Reeves.

Sarah McLaughlin - that's a beautiful song, beautifully sung.

Thanks for the link.

Merry Christmas to you, Barry......and to all you bloggers too....... even the ones that I don't agree with (WK). It's the season to focus on how we have many similarities that we don't even notice. It's an interesting group that gathers here - & I enjoy our virtual relationships.

May you all have a safe and happy new year.

The Cat Carol is the saddest Christmas song. EVERYTIME I hear the song I cry.

Based on the recent chick pics posted by BU-Bear, he has a thing for mothers and daughters.
Just sayin'

Lets bring the lights up on this ho hum sad Christmas song stuff. Fun Christmas songs.

RE Keen

Mom got drunk and Dad got drunk at our Christmas party
We were drinking champagne punch and homemade eggnog
Little sister brought her new boyfriend
He was a Mexican
We didn't know what to think of him until he sang
Felis Navidad, Felis Navidad

Brother Ken brought his kids with him
The three from his first wife Lynn
And the two identical twins from his second wife Mary Nell
Of course he brought his new wife Kay
Who talks all about AA
Chain smoking while the stereo plays Noel, Noel
The First Noel

Carve the Turkey
Turn the ball game on
Mix margaritas when the eggnog's gone
Send somebody to the Quickpak Store
We need some ice and an extension chord
A can of bean dip and some Diet Rites
A box of tampons, Marlboro Lights
Haleluja everybody say Cheese
Merry Christmas from the family

Fred and Rita drove from Harlingen
I can't remember how I'm kin to them
But when they tried to plug their motor home in
They blew our Christmas lights
Cousin David knew just what went wrong
So we all waited out on our front lawn
He threw a breaker and the lights came on
And we sang Silent Night, Oh Silent Night, Oh Holy Night

Carve the turkey turn the ball game on
Make Bloody Mary's
Cause We All Want One!
Send somebody to the Stop 'N Go
We need some celery and a can of fake snow
A bag of lemons and some Diet Sprites
A box of tampons, some Salem Lights
Haleluja, everybody say cheese
Merry Christmas from the Family

"Bacon." My 6-year-old came home from school last week and told me about his first-ever hot school lunch. It was a bacon cheeseburger (not crazy about that) but he "picked all the bacon off."

My favorite Sad Christmas Song is Dan Fogelberg's Same Auld Lang Syne. It's especially bittersweet now that he's gone.

Do I have to do everything for you people??

Ahem...

There's nothing entertaining about The Beaver when it gets old.

Come on, you guys! BG tossed up a softball on this one!

You are right Jarhead. Beaver never gets old!

I didn't stick around after the Cowboys' game to watch the ceremony.

It was really cold. And, we lost. But mostly, it was really cold.
