Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • My back still hurts. A lot.
  • A four year old girl was reported missing then found dead by deputies in the back seat of her family's SUV last night. If I've got the address correct near Cleburne, there are some pretty nice homes in that area. 
  • It is kind of hard to explain how the funeral of the firefighter killed at the Ballpark turned out to be such a spectacle (probably wrong word) yesterday. He wasn't, after all, not killed in the line of duty.  What if the man had been killed in a car accident or at a little league park? The funeral would have then been a small and solemn affair.
  • Lake Bridgeport is now dropping about a foot every two weeks and it's about to get a lot worse.
  • The Ticket's Gordon Keith went to Africa on vacation and has posted some pics, including a couple of him kneeling over dead animals that he presumably shot. For the life of me, I don't understand why you would want to kill an animal like that. 
  • The All Star game is in Arizona tonight. Wasn't there talk at one time about a boycott due to the state's immigration laws?
  • The father of the Fort Worth kid bitten by a shark off the Texas coast last week was on WBAP this morning. Hal Jay asked the dad if the kid was wearing any type of "leather" at the time of the attack. (Referring to a skin-diving suit.)
  • A Britney "Hey, now."
  • Finally, DPS allows you to check the status of your driver's license online (i.e. is it suspended).  For years, you would have to call a non-toll free number and wait for at least 30 minutes. There's a fee but it's hard to tell when it applies. 
  • Country boy shoots himself in the leg preparing to do battle with a paper target. (Language warning.)
  • The Family Cat now wants to be petted for thirty seconds at the beginning of the day. It's like a Helen Keller break through. 
  • Streaker gets the horns by a bull/cow in Pamplona. I cheer for the animals every year.
  • Mrs. LL tried to make her own sushi or some kind of roll last night. I don't think that went very well.

Barry, get the back checked out. Hopefully, only a pulled muscle. But discs do blow out at your age.

The fire fighter who died at the ball field did have a large send away event. Simply because he died in front of a huge audeance. It should be no surprise to us that it naturally would have to be a lot more people who would need closure. There were probably many more people, like me, who sent prayers up for the family.

The reason why so much media attention to the man who fell at the Ball Park was due to the tragedy. In a time when many fathers don't take the time to be real "daddies", this man was just trying to give his son a good night out with Dad. So many people witnessed his fall and felt such sorrow for the little boy who had to ride in the ambulance while his dad was dying in the back.

I also feel sorry for the people associated with the Rangers organization as they strive to have family fun and have a safe, clean place for people to enjoy America's sport. To have this happen has affected the organization horribly.

God bless them all.

I don't believe they celebrate the "running of the cows" in Pamplona. As a former Bull you should know that.

Nice homes in the area where the little 4 year old died? Are you thinking this only happens in trailer parks? These things can happen in all walks of life. If you are thinking like that, maybe your back is feeling a little carma....just saying.

I thought the pic of Briney was lovely. She has a dynamite figure! Even that chucky little bo-bo of hers. Remember, she's has a couple of kiddies. Her body is holding up great!!

Some men like hunting as a preferred sport while yours is to run like a sissy.

The Ticket's Gordon Keith went to Africa...


Keith thinks he's Ernest Hemingway when he in fact he is more like Francis Macomber a Hemingway character. In other words a wimp.

Keith was even in a band called The Hemingways and look at his stupid beard.

I rest my case.

A Britney "Hey now."

As in "Britney — hey now, you're 30 years old, so it's time to stop dressing like you still have an 18-year-old's body."

That guy getting the horns is pretty funny. Back in my day, they didn't allow naked guys and bulls together, but if they did....

We don't deer hunt in Texas. We put out bait and wait.

My thoughts are with 8:51. What do 'nice homes' have to do with it? Accidents and child deaths occur in all social strata, Barry.

As for the dead dad, everyone gets all pent up when a firefighter or cop dies anywhere, regardless of whether they were doing something stupid like this guy or not. For some unfathomable reason, some folks put those people in another category from the rest of us. Guess their lives are worth a lot more than we normal folk who work just as hard at our jobs and mean just as much to our families. I, for one, thought Waaaay too big a deal was made out of a man doing something STUPID and reaping the consequences. Not sad...just idiotic.

"Finally, DPS allows you to check the status of your driver's license online . . ."

BG--If you pay your reinstatement fees online then you will be charged a service fee. It does not cost just to view your DL status. The service seems to work pretty well and the best part--no automated telephone answering system, crappy music on hold, or voice mail needed.

Cops and firemen put on a show whenever one of them dies like they are somekind of hero for doing their job.

Just an FYI for the people who are hating on the FF funeral let me explain. Those who attended are family and friends. Other departments send reps out of respect. They volunteer their time to go. It cost tax payers nothing. And when you work in public service it becomes your identity. It wouldnt matter how he died he would have gotten the same funeral with the same turn out. I know. I have attended dozens of these funerals. The difference is you actually heard about this one. Just let them be and let them mourn their friend, collegue, and father/husband. It affects you in no way so just shut up and let it be.

11:40 I agree with you totally. They like to make a big show of their friendship. Makes me want to barf.

I agree with ll:40. Cops & fireman have a hard job yes; but that's what it is - a job. They are people like us who are held up way too high. Might add there have been quite a number of them lately showing their true colors and are not the law abiding people they should be! I have no more respect for them than the guy who operates my local Walmart store.

9:36 You are sadistic in your description of killing a defenseless doe. It makes me want to wonder if you would also like to kill a defenseless human being.
Gun toting hunters are murderers. It was only usefull when there were no grocery stores. Now you can buy your meat. You have no reason to hunt except you enjoy the kill. I will always be a hater of hunters.

2:12 good posting. Their job is no more important than mine or yours or anyone else's. Can't stand when people put them on some kind of pedestal.

I'm not defending anybody else on here. The person you're arguing with sounds like a total moron anyway. Do you realize he played it up to get a reaction out of you - and it worked?
But where do you think "meat" comes from? Somebody has to kill a whole bunch of animals to fill the meat case. It doesn't matter to me if it can be easily obtained at the grocery store, so long as a hunter makes use of the carcass. Your hatred seems irrational and unfounded

Nothing is better than chicken fried backstrap smothered inn gravy.

I've never understood a person putting an animal equal to a human.

I love the sound of the "double- lunger" made by the arrow passing through.

I will continue to hate ignorant people.

When was the last time you saw venison in a grocery store?
Nobody hunts chickens or cows, that I know of. Hunters harvest game that is typically not available in a grocery store.
I personally could prolly do without beef and eat venison instead, and elk meat is better than any beef steak I have ever eaten. But whatever. As far as killing a defenseless human being, human beings are only defenseless while they are in the womb. In the USA we have not legislated ourselves into being defenseless,,,yet. With that being said, I bet you are a pro-abortion.
