Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • What's this about a helicopter at the Bridgeport/Decatur game?
  • My "Sports Genius" label is still intact: Told you the Rangers would go out in the first round. (And there were people calling up sports radio stations hoping they would lose on Saturday because they had tickets for Sunday's game and wanted to see them win then.)
  • What a fine sports weekend for me: Baylor, Cowboys, Rangers all lose. Sheesh.
  • Yesterday, due to an old-man-nap and other things, I had to TIVO Cowboys and Rangers and didn't get to watch them until after 6:00 p.m. You truly have to "go off the grid" to avoid finding out the scores  until you watch them.
  • Mrs. LL managed to lock the the family kitty in the refrigerator this weekend (not or long and the kitty didn't mind.)
  • New releases for books, movies, and albums? WhenItDrops.com.
  • Couple in Fort Worth fall asleep in pickup while sitting on railroad tracks. Gets struck by train. And survive. 
  • Funny and sad moment yesterday: Wade Phillips trying to high fine Dez Bryant after he was injured only to be ignored. Wade standing hopelessly with his hand in the air epitomizes his leadership skills.
  • Fox 4's made fun of people getting married at The Little White Chapel on 10/10/10. I'm trying to convince Mrs. LL to call in with a country voice to "Tell It To Tim."
  • Mind Blowing: California governor candidate Meg Whitman has spent $140 million of her own money trying to get elected.
  • Anybody else sick of seeing pink in NFL games?
  • And kids are wearing "I love boobies" bracelets in support of breast cancer research?
  • I'm told I talk in my sleep.
  • Went back to that Mexican restaurant across from the 7-11 on Western Center Boulevard on Friday night. Sadly I can't remember the name but the food and the service is fantastic.
  • I want the governor's race to be over so I can stop hearing the commercials. 
  • I still plan to go on an extreme rant about the horrible service at Fogata's a little further down Western Center. I've gone there twice and walked out both times before being seated. Wheels. Off.

Casa Rita's?

Is that the good restaurant you enjoyed? We really like that place.

Rangers. Baylor. Cowboys. You hit the trifecta of bad luck this weekend. Oof, Madonne!

At least the Drake Bulldogs beat the hell of Marist and the Giants benefitted from the most wheels-off performance in the NLDS since Ricky Ankiel in 2000. Thanks, Brooks Conrad!

That restaurant is Casa Rita's. I believe that it is owned by the company that owns Spring Creek Barbecue.

Have not tried Fogata's, but have eaten at Oscar's in Haltom City and Martha's on Heritage Trace. Need to try either one of them.

Wrinkle Perry gets my vote.

To Barry...
Perhaps, you are talking about Casa Rita's. Anytime I eat Mexican food in Ft. Worth I eat at Casa Rita's. I order either the Chicken Chile Relleno or the Salmon with Mango Salsa.

Last year, I took the photo so a friend who could not find the place would know what to look for as they drove past, for the 4th time. He is blond so it is expected that he, easily, gets lost.

You tard. The Rangers still have a shot. They are not out of it yet. You can talk Tuesday when they win and tell everyone how much you were wrong.

Has this ever happened to you over at Smith and Green? http://www.aolnews.com/nation/article/lawyer-steven-eggleston-sues-over-nude-mens-retreat-pushed-by/19665438

There are so many young deaths in the update this morning, sooo sad!

House of York said...

Surely, that is not what happened9:24. If so, who pays for that?

Shhhh....Barry! Your going to jinx the Rangers.

@ 10:18..I was thinking the same thing..How heartbreaking for these families. What is the world was wrong with them, I wonder?

10:32 It was their time. As I've said numerous times on this blog, God never promised we'd all live to 80. It happens.

House of York.....that is exactly what happened. The game ball was delivered by medical helicopter ambulance. Sickening, isn't it? And here I thought we were in a recession!

House of York said...

Wonder who is paying for it, 1:14? The school in a split? They should have taken donations at the gate. LOL

Mmmmm.... Just saw a cute picture over at a certain person's significant other's blog of a certain person sleeping. Very strange to see someone else sleep in the same position I do with their hands cocked that way.

RPM said...

I'm not certain, but I think the restaurant is Casa Rita's. Never dined there, but I've heard good things...
