Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts






  • I guess it is the position of the sun in the sky this time time of year, but every dawn and every sunset will cause the greatest orange-ish color to appear on the bottom of clouds.
  • Fox 4's Jenny Anachondo thought: Pretty, pretty hot. 
  • I have never really understood the concept of the Pope. Until I see some super powers, I'm not particularly interested. 
  • The Clock-Making-Kid's sister was once suspended for issues related to a bomb threat which she denies: "I got suspended from school for three days from this stupid same district, from this girl saying I wanted to blow up the school, something I had nothing to do with.” (H/T Bud Kennedy)
  • Random post on a Rhome Facebook page at 6:49 a.m. this morning: "We [recently] moved here because of my husband's job. We are from a small town and were thrilled to find a house away from the craziness of more populated areas. I joined this group to learn about Rhome. After reading these posts, I'm really wishing we hadn't moved here. Has it always been like this?" Yes, darlin'. The answer is yes
  • I used to have a credit card which was associated with only one type of gas station. I think it was Shell or Texaco. How weird is that?
  • I think I may put up a sign up in my office which reads: "The more you talk to me, the more I can help you."
  • The Dallas Observer has released a list of the "10 Most Embarrassing People In North Texas". You'll notice that there are six people on the list that I've had in my figurative cross-hairs over the years.
  • Yogi Berra has died. The closest thing I ever got to one his crazy sayings was when I announced to my buddies that "We may have opened up a can of Pandora's boxes!" I still remember the look on their faces. 
  • I think Trump has realized he needs to get out of the public eye for a month or so. 
  • I think I just mowed the lawn for the last time this year.  Every March of April when I mow it for the first time, I tell myself I'll be doing this weekly until the third week of football season. 
  • I noticed that the Update had a notice about a government office "closed for training." 
  • Apparently I ruined BagOfNothing's plan to post a different version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" each day this week by linking to a site yesterday which has the ten greatest covers of the song. He has (jokingly) declared we now have a Gary Patterson/Art Briles relationship where he wishes to be Briles. No, sir. I will be playing the role of Art Briles in this playlet. And this was my reaction to your assertion to the contrary. (Side note: I'll say it again, the real life Patterson vs. Briles battle is one of the greatest things of all time in Texas football history.) 
  • Patterson yesterday said that once all the facts come out about the arrest of one of his players that the should media report it  "just as strongly as what" they were doing now. Man, that brought back memories of the Michael Irvin clip where he was outside of a bar in Valley Ranch and declaring (correctly) into the camera that he had been falsely accused of rape. "You report it with the same intensity!!!," he yelled. I couldn't find the video. 
  • Look at that headline below: "Should mentally ill be executed?" You think fifty years from now society will locate that edition of the paper and scream, "Are you kidding me??!!"
