Random Friday Morning Thought






I was actually still awake last when some of the Laremy Tunsil ordeal was happening.
Question: If Trump was physically in California, why send a white powder substance to his office?
  • Kitten available here.
  • An unreal legal headline was submitted by a faithful reader. Let's just say it involves consent for a particular act and alcohol.
  • We're officially road tripping this weekend to watch the 7th grader in the house play some softball with a state trophy on the line. I have a feeling, it's coming home with us. We're undefeated.
  • Of course, that's assuming there's not a lake on the field tomorrow.
  • I'm not a fan of guns in the house. Actually, I'm not a fan of guns at all. I know, I know a gun will win in a battle over a pink t-ball bat any day, but I'm still not a fan. My time in EMS in my 20's involved more than my fair share of gun shot victims....both young and old.
  • I'll admit, I didn't read this article and am basing my disapproval solely on the headline but, Sir, was that really necessary?
  • How did Johnny Manziel spend his evening during the NFL draft?
  • I feel like I haven't been as successful as I wanted to be this week while blogging, because I didn't once get a response out of Worldkyle. I'll work harder next week. I think I've gotten the hang of it.
  • I also spent 30 minutes last night looking for an RTG, then realized I spent 30 minutes looking through pictures of barely dressed young women. What has my world come to?
  • I also had a moment at about 30 minutes of looking when I think I figured out why the picture needs to be enlargeable. Ew! Back to cute animals. (and probably more hot guys)

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Look! I finally found a girl picture, and according to the University of Washington, that is what a cheerleader should look like.
  • I'm not sure the bloody shirt in the Midlothian case is going to amount to much. I think it is what it is.
  • Michael Phelps: "I know I probably have moments where I have gone off the deep end where I shouldn't." Uh, ya think?
  • Someone knocked on one of our windows before 6am this morning. Time for cameras. And, yes, the baseball bat came out.
  • Anybody got a sheep this gal can pet? I love the crazy Craiglist postings. So many weird people out there. 
  • Has anyone else in the history of presidents campaigning named their running mate this early in the process?
  • Now that we have all mocked the lack of weather a couple of days ago, you know we'll get horrible weather tonight and tomorrow. Also, this ain't looking like I'll get that burrito.
  • The Senior In The House is driving me crazy with her lack of concern on how little time left she has before college to get stuff done. I'm feeling a little stressed. Ok, a lot stressed.

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • I need that pig, but I think we have enough animals for now.
  • Fox 4 showed images of cars being covered up before the storm to protect from the possible hail. It reminded me of the Egg Drop Project from Elementary School.
  • To the police in Midlothian, let me solve this for you. The husband has a girlfriend and they planned the attack together. Finally, all those Dateline shows and Lifetime Movies have come in handy.
  • The storm system was mostly a dud, except for Grayson County.
  • I'm a little slow getting these RTs out today. Another night of getting home late and getting up super early.
  • Happy Administrative Assistant's Day!
  • For the record, Channing Tatum is not that young. He is in his 30's. Thank you very much!
  • Johnny Manziel was indicted yesterday. Let's fast forward about eight months. I have a feeling his punishment, if found guilty, will be light. There's your HLO (Hot Legal Opinion) for the day.
  • I'm hearing that Lake Bridgeport will be open at noon today. The 7th grader in the house frowned on my idea of kayaking last weekend. "The lake is closed to ALL water traffic," she said.
  • How's One Stop? I need to know that they'll be open so I can partake of my Saturday morning breakfast burrito with their homemade salsa. (Not an embedded advertisement, just a hope.)
  • I think it's almost time for the NFL draft, that I care very little about. Now College Football, yes, I love it.
  • I really miss this guy! I'm sorry if you had happily forgotten about him. (The next video in line was a camel giving birth. My head nearly exploded.)
  • Sometimes the best part of my day is the comments. Thanks for making me laugh and the explanation on shade.
  •  
  • The two mistakes on made on Friday were (1) Not using block form and (2) Leaving Random out of the title.
  • 32 days till school is out. Hello, Summer.

Tuesday Random Morning Thoughts





  • The 7th Grader in The House had a softball tournament last night. We made it to the 8:00 pm Championship Game....yay! And we're going to State! I could do a whole post on my evening....I carpooled four middle school girls, got Subway in between games when 911 had to be called for a guy that passed out in front of me in line and I was also the scorekeeper for both of our games. So much drama in my evening.
  • I heard an 8th grader use the phrase, "I don't want to throw shade his way, but....". I officially feel old because I have no idea where that came from.
  • Berry White was on the news again. Another storm is a brewing.
  • I meant to make the crazy shootings in Ohio a bullet point yesterday but didn't quite get to it. That has to be the craziest story yet. And, oddly, yes there was marijuana involved.
  • Update on Barry? He's doing really well. He did spend a couple of weeks in two different hospitals and was discharged late last week. He'll be back at the blog before you know it. He's an oddly private guy that blogs publicly. I'll let him post on what he's been through. I will give ya updates though.
  • I'll apologize now for the slow approving of comments. I, thankfully, still have a job during the day.
  • I like posting pics of available cute dogs at the Animal Shelter, but be warned, the female portion of the Liberally Lean Nation wouldn't mind some Man Candy. It'll happen.
  • I actually have a sports post. I listened to the The Cowboys Pre-Draft Press Release on The Ticket before the softball game. Jerry did not disappoint. Listen. 
  • Hey! We have reader submitted bullet points! Thank you, Caleb!
  • The Republican candidate for Denton County Sheriff stepped into this weekend when he waded into the “bathroom debate” on Facebook. (http://www.dallasobserver.com/news/denton-county-gop-sheriff-candidate-tracy-murphree-calls-for-violence-against-transgender-people-needing-to-pee-24013) What this has to do with his Sheriff duties is a mystery.
  •  Ted Cruz and John Kasich have teamed up to try and stop Trump from winning Oregon, New Mexico, and Indiana. Cruz will make a play for Indiana (where he is behind in the polls) and Kasich will take Oregon and New Mexico. You can’t make this stuff up.(http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/25/us/politics/ted-cruz-john-kasich-donald-trump.html)
  •  Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island vote today. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton lead their races – by double digits. Remind me how they’re going to #StopTrump or the public is #FeelingTheBern.



Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • How cute is this pup? You can find him and maybe even give him a different name than Bozo. Then again, he does have pretty big looking feet. 

  • I can't tell you how much I appreciated all the positive comments yesterday....on my grammar. A little insight into the Liberally Lean Headquarters.....his grammar mistakes drive me bonkers. All that said, I'll admit to two mistakes. Anyone catch them? One is not grammar related. 
  • We have chances of severe weather again this week. I'm not sure Lake Bridgeport can handle it. I may have to fire up the Liberally Lean Weather System. 
  • I went for a jog today and saw a Mama Duck with her tiny baby ducks. A little later I stopped to see another Mama Duck with bigger ducks and a male duck. I appreciated the Daddy Duck for hanging out with the family. I never see that. Abit more during this jog, I see four males ducks hanging around one female duck with tiny babies. I actually stopped and pulled out my head phones only to realize this was not a friendly scene. I'm not sure I've seen anything so violent in nature.  
  • A DFW elementary school is taking submissions to rename the school. They'll take this seriously, right? Surely.
 
  • Next month The Senior In The House will turn 18, experience prom and graduate. I'm in full panic mode. I'm being told there's nothing legal I can do to enforce an agreement that she signed at the age when she was five that she would never grow up.
    • Speaking of Prom, this story makes me very nervous. 
  • Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Maryland go to the polls tomorrow. Political Progress on my part.
  • I have a non Wise County relative that is a HUGE Bearnie supporter. She started posting articles about him last year.
