Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • That thunderstorm came out of nowhere this morning.
  • It's early, but the Rangers are beginning to feel like the pre-World Series Rangers. (They lost 12-1 last night to a horrible A's team. It was so bad that Texas brought in Craig Gentry, an outfielder, to pitch at the end of the game.)
  • There's something funny about a guy in a Darth Vadar outfit arguing with a cop about a parking ticket.
  • I've seen the original Star Wars three times or so and I have to admit I have no idea what the heck is going on.
  • Baylor and TCU advanced to the Super Regionals in college baseball last night and they are the only Texas teams to do so. (And I like saying "super regionals.")
  • When the trash bin isn't emptied front of your home on trash day it kinda messes up your scene. My scene is messed up.
  • I'm not 100% positive, but when WBAP's (annoying) traffic gal Laura Houston was told that Hulk Hogan was going to be on the show, she made reference to the chances of him turning green if he got angry. She got her Hulks confused.
  • I'm not sure what the excitement is about Venus passing in front of the sun this afternoon. It'll look like a dot. And I don't need every news report to tell me: "Do not look directly at the sun."
  • I've got a new landscaping project as I put in a flowerbed around the base of a tree. Those roots might make this a tad bit difficult (and I pray I don't kill that tree.)
  • I had a buddy who had about three inches of top soil brought in to cover his backyard once and that slight change in elevation killed what had been a massive and healthy oak tree.
  • Cruz and Dewhurst are thinking about doing a debate in Spanish? They'd stand a better chance of getting votes by replying, "I only speak 'merican!"
  • Pictures of Jerry Sandusky arriving for jury selection this morning. That'll be a circus.
  • In the MLB draft yesterday, the Houston Astros chose a 17 year old kid out of Puerto Rico with the first overall pick. That seems like a gamble. 
  • Mrs. LL to me over the weekend: "Sheesh, you hold a grudge." (It was about a third party, not her.)

"I'm not sure what the excitement is about Venus passing in front of the sun this afternoon."


Nobody alive today will be here to see it happen again. Truly a once in a lifetime event in history.

I remember this one time when the Rangers drafted a kid from Puerto Rico, who was only sixteen. None of the sports geniuses back then thought it was a gamble to take Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez

The only way Episode IV - A New Hope couldn't make any sense is if you watched Episodes I-III first. I know that sounds goofy, but EpIV spends the most time on exposition - all the other ones that follow build on what you already know. It's when you go back and watch it that you can pick out the inconsistencies in the story.
You've seen it three times?!? I would guess that most folks in your demo have seen it dozens of times. I've seen it at least a hunnert times probably, but I got a head start on you

"debate in Spanish" The Aztec speak Spanish and so will your grandchildren. This is happening faster than I thought.

Hey, when that Venus thing happens today, do not look directly at the sun.

TCU advanced to the super regionals in baseball on Texas A&M's Field and beat Ole Miss to do it.

Anything double ironic about that?

On a similar note... the year of the Bear continues as Baylor baseball advances.

As great a year it has been for Baylor.... it's been just the opposite for A&M. They can't wait for this sports season to be over.... nothing but fail in every seemingly big game.

The force is strong with this one. Today will be a day long remembered. It has seen the death of Kenobi, and soon the fall of this puny traffic ticket.

Barry, on the yard project I have but one word of advice: cholla. Lots & lots of cholla. Keeps the neighbor kids & stray pets away. And very little watering.

Barry - You should have an expert tell you what kind of tree it is.... 100 year old Post Oak trees will die if you mess with them. put in a lawn..... tree dies. put in a lawn sprinkler..... tree dies. move dirt around...... tree dies. Change the elevation anywhere....... tree dies. Plant a flowerbed..... tree dies.

Anybody else notice that the first day of the Decatur Cares summer feeding program is chock full of Mexicans?

How embarrassing that we allow illegal parent Mexicans to benefit from this program.

I think it is irresponsible for the Mess to show pictures of who is receiving aid. The should be privacy issues in play.

I think it's great 2:53! It should be public information. If you're loser enough to ask for a free handout (elderly exempt) on someone else's dime the public has a right to know who is taking the handout.

Neil Sperry's column in last Friday's Startlegram had some info on taking care of tree roots.
