Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • Sherwood Schwartz, the creator of The Brady Bunch and Gilligan's Island, died yesterday. His name is embedded in our minds because he would get credit at the beginning of every show with his name, and his name alone, being on the screen.
  • Surprising facts if the radio didn't lie to me this morning: (1) Gilligan's Island was only on the air for three seasons, and (2) The Brady Bunch never cracked the Top 30.
  • Some lady went all John Bobbitt on her husband.. 
  • Mrs. LL went through a drive through for dinner for the two of us and ended up spending $25 last night. [**Head Shake**] But we'll make at least two meals out of it. 
  • If someone agreed to fly you and two buddies to New Jersey, give you a luxury suite and another hotel room, a limo ride to Atlantic City, and pay you $10,000 for two hours to sign autographs, would you show up? Dez Bryant didn't. That guy's an idiot. 
  • My back is significantly better today. But I've been old-man-with-a-heating-pad for two days. 
  • $750,000 house for sale in Decatur.
  • I got dogged yesterday for posting about the 1998 Wise County bomb plot? Really? That's not interesting? And I bet most loyal readers had never heard of it.
  • Saw the season premiere of Curb Your Enthusiasm which debuted on Sunday. Boy, talk about jumping the shark. 
  • A bought a book yesterday off of Amazon by an author from Decatur who died of cancer at age 31 and before the book was published. 
  • Photo gallery of people hanging out at Northside bars. Wise County has to be representing in there somewhere.
  • Nancy Grace has a countdown clock for the hours before Casey Anthony is freed. 
  • Costa Rica was by far the best vacation of my life. A four hour rafting journey is still simply indescribable. (Junior Miller talked about his recent visit there this morning on The Ticket complete with an audio of Howler Monkeys.)
  • Teenagers lured a Domino's Pizza man to their location in Fort Worth in 2009 and then robbed and killed him. So the guy's widow sues Domino's for wrongful death. The more things change . . . . 
  • Coach-in-exile Mike Leach's new book looks delicious. I've said it before: He can't get a job because he's perceived as a Human Resources problem. 




Edit: Alleged Wise County related pics from the Northside photos referenced above:

What's your point with the house? Big house, nice ammenities, 10 acres...but if they're serious about selling, that'll take a few years and a couple 100,000 price drops...House we bought last year started at 500,000, on the market for 2 years, we got it for 330,000.

Wow, Barry, something tells me you used your cell phone to snap that pic while you were on vacation!

Mike Leach might be having difficulty finding work, not because of his P/R perception, but because of his fundraising skills or lack thereof. A key part of any head coach's job @ a division 1school is shaking hands with the alum and raising coin. Ask around how much money LEach raised during his time @ Tech and compare that number to what Tubberville raised in year 1. If Tubberville beat his career numbers in one year, THAT, is a bigger part of why Leach can't get a sniff now than any perception that he's a trainwreck waiting to happen.

Barry, I need the links in blue. Whatever color they are now are impossible for me (being colorblind) to see. I didn't rub it in Coca Cola's face when they screwed up with "New Coke." I appreciated the move back to Coke Classic and went on my way.

All I'm saying is that I'm willing to act like this never happened.

Thank you for your cooperation in this regard.

And yet the minute Domino's pizza establishes a public policy that they won't bring pizza to certain neighborhoods, they'll also be sued.

It is a good thing she is wearing her personal flotation devices to the pool. Safety first.

Glad your back's better, but ice is used to decrease inflammation. Heat relaxes muscles, so depends on what is wrong with it as to which treatment is recommended. Side note: when you have back problems at your age, you ARE the middle aged geezer with the heating pad. Face it..you aren't a spring chicken any longer, dude!

Larry David of "Curb Your Enthusiam" said that we would have a Muslim President before we would have a bald President. How right he was. Trouble is he just said it recently. That's like me telling you today that the Dallas Mavericks would be the 2011 NBA Champions. By the way, how is that Muslim President's change working out for ya?

Based on the info from the article, Domino's (and probably most major chains) already has a policy in place. They don't publicize it, but a person can learn of it by experience.
I lived near Houston in the 90's and ordered a pizza from the nearby Papajohn's. They declined to deliver, saying they had a policy of not delivering to that neighborhood. It was justified - late-night gunshots were not uncommon. The pizza had to be picked up. Oh, well...

10:37 - Pres. Obama's change is working out much better for me than McCain's would have. Thank you.

And you can't make a person Muslim by labeling him so in your head so you can slur him because you are a religious bigot.
We all get to say what religion we belong to, what services we attend, including the president. YOU DON'T get to decide that for us.

Why do people assume that "CHANGE" will always be a positive one? Have these people not lived long enough to realize that not all "CHANGE" is good? For instance, I had "CHANGE" in my paycheck. Yes, the pay was less.
Just in case it isn't clear to some people - - LESS pay is not a positive "CHANGE" and also, LESS is not MORE!

WAKE UP AMERICA! Use some sense!

$750,000.00 house in Decatur - outdated and FUGLY.

Northside bars - apparently the new teeny-bopper hangout.

I grew up on north side; but, I would be scared to go down there now. Some of those butt ugly people in the pics really ought to stay home.

I finally agree with Bacon. This girl looks like she's got just enough squeeze in her. And just enough jiggle.

I've seen chicks like her in Porn movies where Jazbow the pool boy shows up and watches her out the corner of his one good eye rubbin lotion all over her sweaty tan body and then she notices him and says come over here and help put lotion on stuff I cain't reach.

11:22, So three wars instead of two, a 9.2 unemployment rate, a 4 trillion dollar debt, a doubling of gas prices, a thirty percent devaluation of your home, an upcoming third class health system is working out good for you huh? How can you prove a hypothetical situation with McCain. No one in the history of ever has been able to prove a hypothetical but you can? As your almight Obammy says, "Give peas a chance."

Those chics can't be from Wise County. Not fat enough.

11:22, Have you read Obammy's book Audacity of Hope. This is a quote, if it came down to it, I would stand with the Muslims. The sound of the Islam call to prayer is the most beautiful sound in the world. Now you decide what religion he is.

That house isn't technically in Decatur. It is north on 51 between Decatur and the Greenwood cutoff...just before you hit the creek bottom....

...and their neighbors??? Would go by the name of Malone...who within the last year moved in a POS single wide within view of the front door...

Can't imagine why they are wanting to sell???

There are more expensive homes for sale than that in Decatur. And, you don't get out of your neighborhood much if you haven't seen some of the $500k + homes built in the last 5 or so years here in Decatur.

Who would pay that much money for a house in shitty-white-trash Wise county any damned way!?!?!?

I'd have to nail on at least 7 more trailers to equal somethin that expensive but what a place I'd have.

Hook Man Speaks is a fun read, especially if you grew up in Wise County. It has references to myths and legends, folk tales, we have heard all our lives. Matt was a good friend, as well. Greatly missed.
