Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • [Insert expected "wow, that was a lot of rain" comment here.]
  • For those that followed the very tense Firebombing blog, it looks like it is over.
  • Funny post on Facebook yesterday from a guy from Bowie who said he saw a waitress at Mexican restaurant ask a guy wearing a DEA jacket if that stood for "Drink Every Day?"
  • If you heard about the "Fatal Attraction" affair the ESPN on-air personality had (news broke yesterday), you only could say, "Oh, my." TMZ even had the wife's 911 call when she saw the crazy woman in her driveway. Chilling.
  • And the crazy girl in the affair was 22 and wasn't even remotely as hot as Glenn Close.
  • If you ever look at the Missing Kid Wall at Walmart you come to the conclusion there are a lot of missing kids.
  • Our County Attorney appeared shirtless in the "throwaway" section of the the Wise County Messenger yesterday. And he was getting tazed (which may or may not have anything to do with him being shirtless.)
  • I just heard what I thought was a dog collar jingle in my office. Turns out it was just jewelry.
  • Today's Update has a funeral announcement for a 19 year old Decatur girl.
  • More bond voting trickery courtesy of the Update: "Early convenience voting will also be 6-8 tonight at an open house at Bridgeport Middle School." It is simply amazing that that is legal.
  • A weekly thought of mine: "Was that guy I just talked to high?"
  • I was reminded a couple of days ago about the long defunct Southern Kitchen in Dallas. Sadly, I bet most people have no idea what I'm talking about.
  • You've probably seen it, but here's a guy on some Home Shopping Channel having a very unfortunate accident with the Wii.
  • When I see someone talking on a cell phone I normally assume that the call is not necessary.
  • ESPN has started a new documentary series called 30/30. Watched one last night on the USFL. Verdict: Fantastic.
  • If you have orange hair and were arrested in Denton for the odd charge of "soliciting money without a permit", I've got your picture.

There are more than enough reasons to vote against the bonds in our two large ISD........but the ballot box trickery is enough for me.

How many of these board members are chruch going people?

Think more than one a lawyer...who hides behind what is legal and what is ethical!

Which is scarier--you repeating a girl's picture--or us NOTICING it? Yeah, I'm guilty.

About the accident with the Wii, Ya my husband took a full swing with the golf club playing the Tiger Woods Wii golf game. The club went right thru the big screen, cost about $500.00 to replace the screen. I asked him if he really thought he was on the golf course and not in the living room. I wasn't happy at all and now my boys are afraid to touch it.

What is this with the Bridgeport School bond election? Heck, just send a ballot home with each kid and forget it.

Sheesh, somebody is really desperate.

Is voting at our churches next?

We are voting NO - it is just NOT the right time.

I don't think it will be over for any of us that read it anytime soon.

My high school boyfriend took me to Southern Kitchen on a date and he was so stressed from driving in the Dallas traffic that he couldn't eat. It was THE place to go for a nice dinner back in the day.

To my understanding it was kidney failure. Sad.

I happened to drive by the Southern Kitchen location about a month ago. The building is still there, but in disrepair. Oddly enough, "The Men's Club" is just a few hundred yards west of the old building.

Needless to say that the entire neighborhood has seen better days.

Firebombing?

Southern Kitchen, just west of the Northwest Highway and Harry Hines traffic circle (roundabout).

Back when I was in high school, we would enjoy a Lowenbrau at the German Restaurant in European Crossroads for lunch, back before it was a third-world dump.

Good times...

Loved Southern Kitchen! Hated the drive to Dallas.

Now to test the memories of the curmudgeon commenters on Barry's site:

Rememeber-
Little Bit of Sweden (a smorgasbord off Inwood)
Farmer's Daughter - where University Village is today in Fort Worth
Kip's Big Boy on Camp Bowie - used to run into Mayor Moncrief when he was sparking his future wife Rosie there
1849 Village - great ice cream spot & movie theater

Well, the 'other leading news channels' have balls afterall! They actually stood up again King Obama and said it was wrong to exclude Fox News when covering major interviews because Fox was a talk radio station, not news channel! OH MY GOSH ! Is this not government media control to the highest degree! This has got to stop, America! Stand up and let them hear you! This is wrong, wrong, wrong King Obama!

Next Thursday B'port Elementary is hosting "Goodies for Grandparents" (which is usually held during Public School Week in March). Guess what? Voting will take place during this event. Employees at BES have been told to vote at that time and encourage visitors at school at vote also.

Girl:Booth or table?

Yes, I remember Southern Kitchens (there were two of them, actually, both on NW Highway) Originally, they only employed a black wait-staff. The women wore kerchiefs and aprons, while the waiters wore knee britches with stockings. Hence: Southern Kitchens. You know, "Mammys and Jockeys". I used to eat there and never gave a thought to the implications....Yeah, I was just that igorant and oblivious to the whole "plantation" theme.

Based on what I have read, I expect most of your commenters would really love those restaurants as well.

Open house at middle school for early voting is giving those in favor of the bond issue more opportunity to vote than people who do not have children who will be more likely to vote aganist the issue.

The election administrator who is in charge of early voting and the election should not be involved in this.

Early voting hours should be established for working people, not a school sponsored event.

Anyone who doesn't like it should take it up with the Judge McElhaney, Sherry Parker, Monty Shaw and the County Chairs who supervise the election administrator.
