Less THan 24 Hours Before Your Most Trusted Source In News is Back In The States


So I checkED in just to make sure that Wise County - the Place and the Blog - are still there (I haven't looked at the comments submitted, I'll get to it). But I've learned . . .

  • A big fire in downtown Bridgeport
  • Near motorcycle death on 287
  • A real death at the Ballpark in Arlington. (In front of his son no less. That may be one of the saddest thing I ever heard.)
  • I'm typing this outside looking over the Sea Of Cortez and a bird almost took my head off two seconds ago. I've got my eye on him. I've named him Nemesis Bird. 
  • A lady ran off the road in Wise County and was dangling off a cliff? How big does a drop off have to be to constitute a cliff? 
  • Another wreck in Paradise where a guy rear-ended another vehicle.
  • And photographer Joe Duty brought his A Game and was there at everyone. (I'm assuming it was his picks -- didn't look at they byline.)
  • If everything doesn't get screwed up, we're going to take a small boat ride to the famous "arch" this morning. (That's "el archo" to my Spanish readers.)
  • Mrs. LL learned a handful of Spanish words and has been using them like nobody's business. I've beaten her down by saying, "Next time, ask him, 'Dónde está la biblioteca?'"
  • Rhiana's stage in Dallas at the Americna Airlines Center caught on fire last night?

Skippy, If you see Matt Drudge down there, tell him we all say hello. He is our most trusted news source. You forgot to mention the most important news item. Unemployment up to 9.2 per cent. Didn't Obammy say it wouldn't go above 8 per cent? He sure is making the Republicans chances look good.

In civilian topography a cliff is a high, steep rock face- especially facing a coast.

In military parlance it's nearly vertical terrain regardless of material composition- or terrain that will require mountaineering skills and equipment to navigate.

My guess is they meant a big ole gulley.

Most Trusted...How about the biggest idiot. How about the guy that does more harm than good for the counties schools......Eveything you allow to be posted will come back and bite you one day. You shouldnt allowed things to be posted about schools and school boards nor should you allow hurtful things that hurt teachers and coaches famlies.

Come on back and bring it on, we miss you Barry! Sorry to tell you the motorcylist on 287 passed away early Saturday morning. Obit sounded like he was a real nice guy, but then most cylist are. I still say they are carrying around a death wish when they get on the bike.
so most of us are still here awaiting your arrival back home. Hope you got enough rest and enjoyment.

The near motorcycle death is now in fact a motorcycle death. Mr. Youngblood passed away Saturday morning.

I have done a scuba dive at the arch in the pic. Cabo is OK for diving, Cozumel much better.

Belize better than Cozumel.
