Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • Dez Bryant was supposed to be on Fox 4 last night but apparently didn't show. Sports anchor Mike Doocy said on camera that he should invest in a GPS next time. I think Dez is a big time knucklehead.
  • Anyone else think Jim Furyk wearing a "Five Hour Energy" cap at the U.S. Open was a little cheesy? (But not as cheesy as someone yelling "get in the hole!" which was tiresome 10 years ago.)
  • And I was really rooting for the 17 year old Beau Hossler. Then he broke out his University of Texas gear on Sunday and faded away. (Interesting note: When Tiger Woods won his first Master's, that kid was two years old.) 
  • Mrs. LL and I went to a batting cage on Friday. I took one turn and mentioned I hadn't swung a bat in 20 years. "You're not going to hurt yourself, are you?" she said. I didn't but it was close on one swing.
  • Wrong  way driver kills a woman on I-35 on Saturday morning. It destroyed two cars.
  • Fox 4 had a story of how and off duty cop was a "hero" for breaking a window out of a vehicle where a baby had been locked inside. I was more interested in how the driver and others tried to get the baby out of the vehicle for 10 minutes before the window was broken.
  • Man, the Republicans are fearful of angering the Hispanics. Romney won't denounce the President's new immigration policy.
  • I ate at P.F. Changs yesterday and got slapped on the back followed by a "keep up the good work on the blog."
  • Adam Sandler's new movie, That's My Boy, bombed over the weekend. His comedy days may be over. 
  • Beginning to think the "starter" is going out in my car (which has been trouble free for two years.) But that means I'm driving the Gangsta Mobile as Mrs. LL takes care of it. I'm stylin'.
  • Hal Jay actually had a funny line this morning when he learned that Dale Earnhart Jr. won the NASCAR race yesterday: "Everyone else wreck?"
  • Mrs. LL and I have been landlords for a bout year. Good tenants = Basically hassle free. 
  • Peaster ISD employees allegedly force 8 year old to bathe. Get sued. Who knew cleanliness was next to the courthouse? 
  • The Messenger is having major trouble with its web site. Your "Above The Fold" will be delayed accordingly.

"Republicans are fearful of angering the Hispanics" That's kind of an insipid observation, counselor. Are Democrats not also afraid of angering Hispanics (and women, and gays, and blacks, etc.?) The job of a candidate is to get elected by pleasing the most people, not by going out of his way to anger them. That Romney has thus far not done so hardly makes him unique. (However, anything's possible. Never discount the Republicans' ability to snatch loss from the jaws of victory.)

Me and Bacon like the women with some meat on their bones. But blonde on the left is a 4.5.

Adam Sandler's audience is either growing up of tiring of his cliched formulaic films (or both).

Have notice that most of the wrong way drivers have been mexkins lately...sad situations indeed.

If you travel on FM 2264, slow the freak down. 60 mph is too fast for some areas and people are traveling 75...a man was killed when he over corrected from the center stripe to the shoulder and hit a tree...speed was determined to be a factor.

You may be stylin' but you are grandpa stylin' by driving 60 on 287! You may get the Gangsta Mobile ran over by them rock trucks.

What was more upsetting than his hat was watching Furyk completely melt down and give away the Open. I don't think I've ever seen golf that bad televised. He also looks old as the hills too and he's only 42.

CR 2264 is an extremely dangerous road to drive even if one isn't speeding. Frankly, 60 mph is too fast on that narrow winding road. Road should be widened, especially since so many people now live out that way. That road used to be driven by farmers moving tractors from one field to another. Now it's full of teenagers and young adults who can't seem to get places fast enough. Many houses are for sale out there, but I would not look at any of them simply because I refused to drive that road each day and I wouldn't want my family driving it either!

I am sure even Jim Furyk thinks the 5 hour energy hat is cheesy, but once a month when he makes his way to the mailbox and finds that check, it makes it a little less cheesy.

Could be the solenoid instead of the starter.

I find the back slapping as a greeting a little wierd. I'm seeing that more and more in the business atmosphere. I only see men do that to each other. I'm a female so I haven't been slapped on the back yet. I'm still a fan of shaking hands. I do think it's shift in our customary greetings and I find it disturbing-like we are going backwards.

I'm beginning to think Bacon may be a little light on his loafers.

9:58 Shaking hands with someone is nasty. Who knows where those hands you are shaking have been.

9:58 it's not like they are slaping you on the arse. It's a friendly slap on the back.

I have come to realize that 18 to 30 year old girls identify themselves with hair styles and boobs.

That was my son that gave you the "atta boy" on the back for your work. I turned him on to the blog when he went to college so he could keep up w/home town info. He is still an avid reader! I pointed him out to you Barry & spoke to you as well - I work for the county and facebook friend of yours, but you don't know me out of uniform!!

Hossler also broke out his University of Texas gear on Friday and when he had the lead at one point.

I have come to realize I like 18 to 30 years girl's boobs and hope they can't identify me.

This blog is like a stripper. It's a guilty pleasure you don't tell anyone about.

1:04 Maybe you should replace Bacon and start the daily Skank-O-Meter scale.

Did that chick in the middle get that bathing suit from Hoochie Momma International?

Now you've gotta come up with a score for your skank-o-meter. Time for bacon to retire.

Sandler's last movie made $137 million dollars. I dont think his career is over. You need to do research before making idiotic claims like that.

Too many double wides on 2264, and too close to Rhome.

I'm not sure why you would stop at 30 year old boobs there are plenty of 40 somethings with nice cans.

We've got GPS, we've got sensors coming out of our ears, we've got back up cameras...we've got a whole bunch of technology that could prevent texting accidents, drunk accidents, wrong way accidents; and yet we don't use it. Why not? It's because people being killed by ones and two and threes just doesn't hit home; old news; we're numb to it...unless it's yours that are involved. So, we'll continue to allow what amounts to hundreds of planeloads of people to be killed by idiots each year in these ways. Think if a hundred airplanes crashed in the next year due to drunk pilots that there'd be something done? Heck, just one plane and there'd be an uproar...and yet, drink up and drive...no problem. Let's not prevent that.
