Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • An officer was struck by a drunk driver in Garland over the weekend. I swear that's the fourth or fifth time that's happened this year.
  • Had three boys show up at the door yesterday asking if the 7th grader was home. Say what?
  • I'm a fan on the Sunday afternoon nap.
  • There's was a guy in an armed standoff with cops at a downtown Dallas restaurant this morning. It got even odder when it was learned that it was the same guy that stole a cop car while handcuffed last week..
  • The doctor that delivered me, Dr. Huddleston in Bridgeport, died over the weekend.  I remember that he even made a house call for me when I hit my noggin' on a brick wall on Christmas Day. 
  • Made the misses watch Boogie Nights last night. I'd forgotten how shocking that thing is.
  • Dan Godwin is one awkward anchor man when he fills in on Fox 4.
  • I think it would be pretty hard to get hit by a car on 287 like that lady did in Rhome this weekend. 
  • Saw parts of I Love You, Man over the weekend. Pretty funny. 
  • Also saw some of Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story. It was really good as well but I hate it when he does bits like trying to make a citizens arrest or, as in earlier documentaries, reads the Patriot Act over a loudspeaker around Washington or takes a boat of people to Guantanamo Bay to get health care. 
  • So we've had the 70s, 80s, 90s, etc. but what are we going to call the decade that is coming to a close. (Or did it come to a close last year?)  I just don't think "the Aughts" will catch on. 
  • Video that keeps popping up over the last few days: U of Hawaii's band forming a stick figured football player who then kicks a ball.
  • I didn't turn on the Cowboy game yesterday, but I did hear they have given up 30 or more points for four straight games -- something they haven't done since they went 1-15. 
  • And another.
  • Megan Fox wore a bikini yesterday but I was distracted by the writing on the side of her rib cage.
  • I'm going to kill the Family Cat. What exactly is the purpose of that thing?
  • A Methodist Church bus from Denton wrecked in the mountains of Colorado this weekend as it was carrying a group for a ski trip. One 11 year old girl was seriously injured. Why's a church involved in a ski trip anyway? Especially the week before Christmas.
  • There was a story in the Star-Telegram this weekend about Tarrant County government, bonds, and the Doctor's Hospital in Bridgeport. I'd comment if I could understand a single word of it.

"Why's a church involved in a ski trip anyway"? I wish my daughter had of been involved with social activities at a church. Maybe rave, techno and drugs would not have become so important to her.

Dr. Huddleston was a great Doctor and also a great Man. his care and concern for patients went above and beyond the norm.
He will be missed.

Not positive, but I bet Dr Huddleston delivered me as well, since my grandmother was a nurse at the hospital and worked with him a lot

Paul rudd in a comedy is pretty much gold - he's such a natural at the uncomfortable funny moment. That's why I hate to see him go the rom-com route in his latest film. You expect that kind of stuff from Witherspoon, Wilson, and now even Nicholson.
Role Models was hilarious; he had a short but funny part in Forgetting Sarah Marshall

What's up with Random Girl's nose?? Should have spent money on nose job instead of the boobs.

Dr Huddleston was a gentleman and a wonderful person. He always dressed like a true professional when making rounds at the hospital, in a coat and tie. He was greatness.

What's wrong with a church taking a ski trip???? Mine used to take the youth on trips like that all the time and it was great. Bonds the group together. Everything a church does doesn't have to be "religious", Barry. They can do things just to have fun together.

Your hey now girl is cute; but, I don't think she's dressed for a game of golf.
Nice to see a knock out figure without showing all her goodies.

I hate cats too Barry. Find it a good home and tell the family "I wonder what happened to that sweet little kitty".

The girl that was hit by a car has two kids from 2 different "soul mates", I assume. Karma guys, karma. I am sorry for her and the choices she has made.

9:22 - love your comment about how Dr. Huddleston dressed.......a true professional. Most doctors now look like they've slept in their clothes. Sheesh, whatever happened to pride?

This whole county will miss Dr. Huddleston - a gentle, caring and truly good man.

Hey! Why don't you drop by this Liberal Weenie's house and see if I own a gun and have an ammo belt.

* Dr. Huddleston was a very rare doctor who had the ability to combine incredible compassion with exceptional professionalism. Most assuredly, the world was made a better place by Dr. Huddleston.

* Back in the day, Boogie Nights was incredibly shocking.

*I have always disliked cats. Who in their right mind keeps a semi-domesticated animal in their home and considers it an optimal experience when it poops and pisses in a box that humans have to scoop?

In the interest of full disclosure, I am required to take care of my spouse's cat, that we acquired, thanks to someone dumping a litter in our 'hood a few years ago. Thankfully, the cat has been house trained and ONLY uses the outdoor 3'x 3' litter/sand box that gets a frequent raking.

I wouldn't even consider having a cat. They're cold and unloving little beasts. Would give a kidney for my dogs, though!

Throw the cat outside. That's where ours lives with the exception of an inside visit here and there.

Dr. Huddleston was an outstanding doctor. He saved my mother's life back in the late 70's.

Dr. Huddleston was not only a great doctor, but a wonderful gentle man. He and Polly have been oustanding neighbors as well. He will truly be missed. There is none finer than he.

why don't we just call this past decade "the 2ks"?

If you look closely you will notice that the problem with her nose is only an optical illusion. Her hand is casting a shadow on the top part of her nose, causing the Jughead effect. And you don't have any way of knowing for sure if she's had work done. Sometimes nature makes them look that way


9:34:
you seem to be impying that getting hit by a car is punishment for having biracial kids. Are you really that ignorant? The only poor choice we can pin on her is not paying attention while crossing the highway and talking on the phone. You sound like the person that commented last week about the kidnapped woman, saying that she would be dead if her abductors had been black or hispanic (a story this morning indicates at least one of them is). Everybody is entitled to their opinion, but that doesn't mean they should be shared.

According to the Messenger, the pedestrian hit by the car was talking on her cell phone. What gets me is they were running tests on the DRIVER of the car for substance. The PEDESTRIAN was at fault. Why didn't they run tests on her???

If I EVER hit or get hit by someone talking on their cell phone and/or texting, I will press charges so fast, it will make their head spin.

I feel terrible for that poor woman who hit her.

Gay's suck...now back to our regular programming.

Very sad news about Dr. Huddleston. He was a good man.

The purpose of that cat is probably to trip you and make you fall down the stairs and injure yourself badly. Better buy a one story house. The cat will get worse not better.

Middle school is the age where boys and girls discover they like each other, so what's the problem??? If they're visiting her at your house, that seems pretty innocuous and safe to me. Get a grip.

Barry you need think about the Dr.'s house call they did that kind of stuff back in the late......wait for it wait the late 40's

For the record... the girl in the pic has a shadow on her nose....

click on it and zoom in.... just like you do porn....only with clothes

4:32 Wrong. I was a little kid in the 50's and THAT was the day of the house call. Dr. Merritt came out to my house and dispensed TLC and medicine from his black bag on his lunch hour when I was sick. Those were the days. Then dear Dr. Huddleston was such a wonderful gentleman. Physicians today wear anything and wouldn't go to your house if you were a-dying. Some things WERE better in the good ole days.

You do NOTHING, but offend people.

I have a cat and I'm in my right mind!!


Yet you like to throw stones??!!?? People who live in glass houses.....

You need to cross right back over the ocean and forget your way back.

To anonymous 7:17...
For obvious reasons, you are seemingly a wee bit touchy about your sanity being questioned. Only an individual of questionable sanity would continue to read the comments of someone they claim does nothing but offend people.

FYI...If you like sifting through cat poop and piss, you are NOT in your right mind.

Get over me being me and get on with becoming someone you like, you daft git.

Barry, the comment about the kids in the church group is stupid. They are on a ski trip because they are all of like mind (they choose not to put themselves in situations where they have to make tough choices) and enjoy one another's company while having fun. Are you so small minded that you think people who go to church are all overly zealous, narrow-minded evangelicals incapable of having interests outside of their relgion? Sometimes the comments you make reveal a certain bitterness about you rather than compassion and tolerance.

1:30 Yes, I admit it, I cannot stand the mixing of the races. It is wrong, wrong, wrong. It will never work in any situation. I consider it child abuse to produce a bi-racial child.
I have many friends of different races. I get along with them fine; but, I would not diddle with one of them!

Oh my, I just looked at the girl in the picture. that's no shadow, she's had a nose job that went bad.

No, there is not a horrible nose job on the lady. It is just the shadow of her fingers across her face.

Point. Click. Zoom. Expand. Review. Move on.
