Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • An executed man's last words were "Boomer Sooner." 
  • I'll be glad when the Family Kitten turns into a grumpy old cat. That thing is driving me nuts. 
  • I  love the fact that Cuban's Mavericks open their season tonight at the same time as the Rangers begin Game One of the World Series.
  • And I said it last year: You can waste your time watching the Mavs play 82 games, but they'll get bounced in the first or second round of the playoffs. It's the easiest prediction in sports. 
  • There was an Underwear Bike Ride in Denton? Why was I not notified?
  • Weird: A 16 year old pregnant Fort Worth girl collapsed in high school and died. The baby was saved.
  • Is it common to see a pregnant high school girl in Wise County?
  • Wild card in re-signing Cliff Lee: His wife was none too pleased with the way the Yankee fans treated her last week. And if momma's not happy, no one is happy.
  • Mrs. LL will be undergoing a root canal at 8:30 a.m. this morning. Please send an "ugh" in her general direction. 
  • I might have chewed on Mrs. LL as she walked in the door because of her kids running in the house. I might want to rethink my approach next time. 
  • For the first time ever, there are network/cable-satellite disputes that are more than threats. Dish Network subscribers still can't get Fox Sports and the main cable provider in Manhattan is having a similar dispute. In the past, they had always resolved their differences at the last minute. 
  • Wichita County is weird: Its last grand jury declined to indict 50 cases.  There's no way they are doing that against the prosecutor's wishes, so why doesn't he just decline the cases and stop wasting the grand jury's time? There's no requirement they approve his decision not to prosecute.
  • The radio was abuzz this morning about "the greatest Motion for Continuance" ever filed because a lawyer wants to go to the World Series. Puhleeze. It's filed in a municipal court. 
  • Never really understood the worshiping with hands in the air and rocking back and forth, but to each his own. Then again, not real sure you should teach your infant to do it
  • There's some weird plane circling the courthouse -- per a phone call I just got. Gotta go.

Forget chewing on Ms LL, discipline the kids as they were your own! Running in the house? What's next?

She did sign a pre-nup?

Grace Fellowship is teaching them young. Before you know it that little girl will be speaking in tongues and demanding offerings for spending of senseless "stuff".

I agree with you about that the Motion to Continue. It would also be a lot more interesting story if it hadn't already happened 10 months ago:

Word of advice.. They are not your children. She will listen to your advice but you will always be wrong and they will ALWAYS come first.

A low flying plane that sounded like a jet flew over our office a short while ago. Wonder if it's the same plane?

It's his house, 9:06. He has every right to set rules and everyone should abide by them.

It was a stunt plane flying over the courthouse, and yes I know who was in it.

Barry - everyone will give you step-parent advice, most having never actually been one. It's easy to sit back and say "they're your kids now, discipline them" but you and I both know all too well that's not exactly how it works.

My husband and I have been married nearly 20 years. When we married his kids were 3 and 4. It was never an "easy" road - the whole family dynamic was out of whack from time to time. Add a couple of kids between the hubby and I, and it got even trickier.

We finally found a happy medium with the kids. Just as a child was to respect any adult, my step-children were taught that, although I am not their mother (nor was I trying to take her place) they were expected to listen to me just as they were their dad (or their mom or their teacher). I will say the one HUGE thing that made this work was that my husband was 100% in agreement with me and NEVER undermined me in regards to their discipline in front of them. I have seen several biological parents who get defensive of the kids and speak up in front of the kids, and that just breeds failure to the situation.

There is a book that I HIGHLY recommend: "Living in a Step-Family Without Getting Stepped On" by Dr. Kevin Leman. He is a WONDERFUL author/speaker and it's not a psychology type book. He's very down-to-earth and gives great, practical advice. Seriously - read the book!

He said....because of her kids running in the house. See he has already made a point that they are not HIS kids. And with an attitude like that starting out it won't get him very far.

Yo dawg....baby girl gettin' her Jesus on! Better than that, see the :56 mark, a couples slow dance is about to break out. I couldn't find the bar, but I do think I saw a tip jar.

I do not know what is worse with the kids running in house situation, not being on the same page with discipline, or blogging about it! If she was slightly mad before she will be livid know!

can't believe the worshipping child is such a big deal. I dont worship like that, but it beats the heck out of a brat-kid anyday.

The kid is just doing what she's seen. Looked to me like she was enjoying herself....leave the kid alone. Brain washing - no - allowing her to express herself in a positive way, yes. It's no different than the Catholic rituals, knealing, responding to scripture, communion, baptism.....She's just doing what others in her church consider "worshiping."
Now, if she was being taught to flip people off, cuss, or perform a pole dance - I could see why someone would be concerned.
And 8:50 - I have attended Grace on many occassions and have never seen anything other that people being free to worship they way they felt comfortable. I have never seen anyone talk in tongues and flop around claiming to be filed with the Holy Ghost.But if I did, I wouldn't blame the church - You are free to worship as you are, where you are, however you want. That is what makes Grace so special. There is no right way or wrong way....just HIS way. Your bitterness and fear indicates you should attend for yourself.

I have a good feeling she's naked under her clothes.

I missed the blog yesterday but have to add my comments today!

2:43 I used to attend that church, and I disagree. My best worship has come alone with God, not sitting in some service being spoon-fed what I need to believe. All churches indoctrinate you, and in my humble opinion, all are crap. My relationship with God doesn't need others to feed it.


Barry, my kids had a step-dad for 9 long years and it didn't go well. One of the main reasons was that he tried to tell me what to do with my kids, while having none of his own and having NO IDEA what it is like to love a child, as a birth parent. I agree with 9:06 completely. They DID always come first and when he tried to discipline them, I became irate, because he had no right to do so. They were just being kids. Running in the house is no big deal. You need to develop tolerance, patience, and be what you are...a STEP parent, and perhaps your marriage will last longer than mine.
