Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • The smoke from the Grasslands yesterday was ridiculous. And did they have to wait until the winds were out of the north so that Decatur could be covered in nuclear winter?
  • A lot of Tiger's old cocky self began to come out yesterday in his post round press conference.
  • The Ranger game was comical yesterday. A great seven innings from the starter, Feliz coming in for one inning and striking out three on 13 pitches, and then Francisco coming in as the closer and getting shelled.
  • If you go to downtown Bridgeport, you won't recognize it due to the re-striping that is going on.
  • Sometimes I'll get a tag on my dry cleaning that there was a problem with one of my shirts. Then I'll search the material forever and never find the offending stain or tear.
  • Had to go to the dentist yesterday thinking I had lost a filling. Turned out to be just a slightly chipped tooth that was taken care of in two minutes with no pain killing shot. Good times. (Unlike this girl's experience.)
  • The driver that jumped from big rig yesterday was thanking God and drinking a beer on the news yesterday.
  • All of a sudden I'm getting a lot of messages about stealing blog material. Uh, yeah.
  • The more I here tech professionals talk about the iPad, the more I want one.
  • Fox 4's Good Day is changing its start time to 4:30 a.m. Wow.
  • I forgot to do the "daily paper - above the fold" yesterday. Here's today's which, once again, is kind of boring:

Forget just Decatur with the smoke from the fires. I live in North Fort Worth and went for a walk about 7:00 last night. We were covered in smoke.

I use to rank how well a blogging week went for me by the number of things you took from my blog, but since that hasn't happened in quite a while I've concluded that I really do have a bag of nothing.

Just for you BG, not need to publish.

That tag from the cleaners indicated they couldn't tell whether the outfit was for a man or women.

"no" not "not", 8:56. Hehehe.

Go by the Apple store and spend half an hour with one ... I think you'll be hooked!

The only thing that comes to mind when I look at the photo is; What the heck ARE all those people staring at that is sooooo outrageous that a girl standing in the middle of the street in lingerie wearing pink bunny ears does not merit a second glance?

To be painfully honest, The Blog has been a wee bit of a dud the past few weeks. Having been a reader, of The Blog, for more than 4 years, I have no doubt, BU-Bear will get back to bustin-it and The Blog will be better.

That might be an Easter bunny outfit, but the date on the photo indicates it's from last Halloween. Either way, she's rockin' it!

The girl in the dental office video is endearingly hilarious!

My advice is to wait about 6 months to a year to purchase the Ipad--I am really wanting one as well but the price will go down and they will work out the kinks by then. I know you can get the software updates, but I would rather wait.

I agree there hasn't been enough controversy on the blog recently and some of my comments haven't been posted, which is very irritating since they didn't involve a personal attack or profanity...what's the deal?

The smoke yesterday did seem ridiculous. Who made the stupid decision to pick one of the windiest days of the year to burn???? What stupidity...pick a nice calm no-wind day next time, dudes!

Looks like they are looking at the girl behind the bunny. Gal in backs seems to have less clothes.

I had to stop using the Cleaners in Bridgeport. After 3 consecutive weeks of getting my husband's dress shirts back with at least 1 button per shirt burned halfway off, I called it quits! Actually, I tried to talk to the girl at the counter about it. She told me to come back in 10 minutes when someone else would be there to talk to me about it. When I told her what the problem was, she said, "Next time that happens, tell us and we can sew a new button on it." I'm thinking it might be more beneficial to figure out who is doing it and train them to NOT do it anymore!

After they finish the Halsell project, I sure hope Bridgeport gets busy with repairing some of the other roads soon. The road by the library and La Quinta is full of pot holes and I don't even drive down that road anymore. It is just pitiful!

Re the Easter Bunny Girl:

When I dress like that, the police usually pick me up. Wonder why?

They can stripe Halsell any way they want, but they can't force people to buy products that are both niche markets and overpriced. And when people start having wrecks trying to back out into oncoming traffic they can't see, they'll stop going downtown altogether. HUGE mistake.

I have to disagree 11:25. I travel that road everyday and I've wondered for years why they don't change the parking to be head in. I believe they are doing it angled parking which I think will work (rather than the straight in parking). That road has always had 4 lanes,but most people don't even bother to drive on the outside lanes because of the parallel parking. The road is not real busy, and should be fairly easy to get out safely. It's just like when you go to Walmart, you need to look before you back out to make sure no one is coming!

I was reading some blogs the other day where the folks were talking about having returned their ipad already. Seemed to be for various reasons.

The driver worked for Leap of Faith. How ironic is that?

Barry - forget the front page of the metroplex paper. Have you seen the front cover of the Bridgeport Index? It is talking about 2 incidents of attempted child abduction. Anyone know any more details on this? Sounds a bit fishy to me....

11:49 I hope you're right, but only time will tell. I do know that I personally won't be driving my kids down that road or parking there myself any time soon. If I have to go downtown, I'll park at Duckwalls and walk.

I-Pad sounds like some kind of hi-tech kotex or something.

Mr. Green do you have any tips on getting out of jury duty? I am contemplating not showing up at all. I need another drink.

sorry 11:49, but I think the restriping is also a huge mistake.

People started avoiding driving down Halsell when the dozens of stop signs went up. With this new striping pattern, you will have most folks avoid downtown altogether. I know I will.

And when downtown merchants get as little business as they do, you'd think they would want all the drive by traffic they could get.

Of course, most of them come and go each year anyway....

...speaking of poor service from cleaners...I used to use Comet cleaners in Decatur until the THIRD time they destroyed something of mine. They attempted to blame it on the poor quality of the $100 shirt. I had purchased it at a store that sells only quality products. I did consult with the store, asking if there had been other problems with the shirt. After being told no, I decided to use a cleaner service that honored their work and knew what they were doing.
