Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • I was truly "off the grid" electronically speaking last week. And I didn't mind.
  • Mrs. LL decided to rap her legs around a pier in the ocean and learned about little sharp organic thingies that will cause a huge and itchy rash. For a week everyone around us referred to the condition being as the result of "barnacles" but after a google search just now, I'm not so sure.
  • A treatment of any ointment we could find and white vinegar (listening to any suggestion we would hear), it went completely away. Then on the last day of vacation it all comes back with a vengeance. She finally got to a doctor yesterday. 
  • I had an experience right out of Cocaine Cowboys but it'll have to be its own post later.
  • The American Airlines flight attendants (most at least) act as if they've lost their best friend.
  • We cleared customs coming back into DFW in record time. Walked straight up to the passport guy and right up to the baggage clearance guy with basically no line.  
  • I got to saw Michael Phelps lose his first Olympic event in real time at the Mexican airport. I think it was delayed here in the States until that night. And is it true that the American winner, Ryan Lochte, is the equivalent of C.J. Wilson? Edit: A man's brain can't change from "I got to see" to "I saw" while he's typing at dawn?
  • Things seem the same here: A wrong way driver caused a four car wreck in Fort Worth, and we've got a double motorcycle death in Dallas. 
  • I'm off to vote against David Dewhurst tomorrow. I don't think I've ever been so angered by campaign commercials as those of Dewhurst.  His latest one on "close our borders"  begins with a split second screen shot of a car destroyed in a wreck. A word is never said about why. If that's not a subliminal message about stereotypes,  I don't know what is. 
  • But look out! Craig James has endorsed Dewhurst. I'll cancel the vote of one his supporters, but I'll need help to cancel out the other two. 
  • I discovered something sitting by a pool this weekend. Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child Of Mind" starts off great but turns into a beating without you realizing it. 
  • Ever been in a small boat when a barracuda is caught and thrown on board? It'll get your attention. (Its teeth is somewhere in Mrs. LL's luggage.) 
  • We left the Family Cat in the house and hired some neighborhood kid to come by and check on her and the house on a daily basis.  Oddest thing: Once we got back she had turned into the most loving and sweet thing you've ever seen. Purring. Cuddling. The whole nine yards.  That ended about 24 hours later. 
  • I'll credit the Update this morning. Sometime there is no news except bake sales, but today it is worth the read.

I think you were setting the proverbial table with the "legs around a pier" bullet. I will probably end up checking the comments more today than the blog this week and I'm a daily reader. Methinks that was intentional

I'm no fan of Dewhurst. I'm also convinced that Mexicans have a ( unidentified ) Drunk Driving Gene.
I also believe the highway signs that say WRONG WAY should be in Spanish...

David Dewhurst is a businessman. As such, he has already figured out a way to get back the 24 million dollars, he gave his campaign, from somebody in Washington..

When I went to see a poll result, there was a Dewhurst ad. Thought that was funny in light of your stance on the issue.
Welcome home.

You sir are no pier! I wouldn't be bragging about giving the Mrs. a rash. That's gross!

Hey, what else did you "got to saw" at the airport? Evidently not a writing lesson!

Mrs. LL decided to rap her legs around..

That would be WRAP, Mr. Baylor grad.

(Its teeth is somewhere in Mrs. LL's luggage.)? That plural man. It is "It's teeth ARE.

Man, it's like shooting fish in a barrel with you today.

I am voting FOR Dewhurst ... to get him out of the state. I'd rather he be one of 100 douchebags in Washington than the most powerful man in Texas.

Also, I want to see the shakeup his ascension to U.S. Senator would cause in the Texas Senate.

Why yes I've been in a small boat hauling in barracuda. Wish I was back in that boat again!

I watched Michael Phelps live on NBC Sports Network (DirecTv 603). Live daily coverage starts at 3am.

Olympic tennis is being shown on Bravo.

Those aren't barnacles, that's a bad case of a foreign STD. What a vacation.

Nice pick of the Black Muslim Queen at the olympics on the blog, How many millions did it cost us for that little vacation ?????.

Please keep us from having to look at that baboon Obammy.

Spell checker, it's should not be "it's" in this case. "It's" can only stand for "it is", so "its teeth are" is correct.

Can you post a picture of this rash ?
