Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • Decatur Police have put up one of those "Your Speed Is" radar gun signs on Trinity Street south of the courthouse square. I'll be running sprints by it later this afternoon. 
  • Big storms are moving in this weekend and if they get here Saturday night, that'll be one heck of a scene at the Texas Motor Speedway. 
  • I had the Girls In The House lined up as quarterback and cornerback as I ran post patterns last night in the back yard.
  • "You realize they aren't boys, don't you?" - Mrs. LL after stepping outside.
  • (Seinfeld voice) What's the deal with those Fox Sports Southwest Girls (pic) that are on Ranger broadcasts? 
  • A not-so-exciting Driving While License Invalid appellate opinion released yesterday which involved Boyd police and the Wise County Court at Law. 
  • A lawyer coming from Denton to Decatur yesterday got lost and ended up in Runaway Bay, and I  laughed about it when he called the court for directions. Once he made it, he saw me in the hallway, ask me if I remembered him, and then told me how he beat me in a criminal trial 15 years ago. That gave me Failed Smile.
  • There wasn't much left of a Mustang that crashed and burned on 114 by DFW airport last night. 
  • I found that someone had left "Empire of the Summer Moon"  for me at my office this morning. 
  • North Korea had a failed missile launch last night. The missile type? Taepodong-2.
  • It's Friday the 13th. It's the second one we've had this year. 
  • Mark Cuban getting interviewed while he's on a treadmill drives me insane. 
  • I'll give the Messenger credit: That's an incredible amount of detail in the plywood-causes-wreck story in today's Update.

Bacon, your left or their left? Lady in white clearly deserves higher than a 2 and certainly rates better than a mere "ok."

There was not "4 feet of hail" in Amarillo. It was stacked up by stream flow, plows, etc. into very deep piles in a few places. Hail that just falls from the sky and accumulates is not brown and covered in mud.

"Empire of the Summer Moon" is completely fascinating. It's a piece of western history, mainly about Quanah Parker, that you don't want to stop reading, nor do you want it to end. Everyone that I know that has read it has loved it. That was nice for someone to leave it for you.
Happy reading!

Were you there? According to reports from people that WERE there, in some locations there actually was that much hail that accumlated, perhaps by flow, but not by plows. Sometimes, especially in West Texas, hail CAN be brown, just as rain can be brown, due to dust in the air.....also interesting fact, there have been times when hail has melted, and there have been fish and frogs frozen in the hail, due to the water being pulled up from lakes and ponds during tornados, and other upward winds, and trapping the little critters in the ice.

Having lived in the grand city of Dumas....I can tell you I have witnessed hail 18 inches deep on the ground in my backyard, and it was dirty, just like in these pics.

Of course it didn't last long, but it was one of the strangest weather events I've ever witnessed.

the North Korean missile launch failure was due to a big misunderstanding when a conversation went like this:
"The missile has rong range, yes?"
"Yes, wrong range."
"Okay, we make happy good raunch time now."
