Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

 That kid is now in his late 20s, and I wonder how the leg is doing. (By the way, the Joe Duty photo link is now dead.) 

  • High winds in Runaway Bay yesterday around 6:00 p.m. 

  • Weird visual looking north from Decatur yesterday evening. Almost everything you see is rainfall with the exception of one plume which was a wildfire burning near the LBJ grasslands.

  • Make no mistake about it, he's gone. That decision has been made.  

  • I've received a special request for a post about a missing good dog out of Runaway Bay.  And it's also a possible abduction. The pooch went missing around 11 a.m. on Monday around the 200 block or Runaway Bay Drive. He's a French Bull Dog, one year old, and fawn in color. $1,000 reward offered.   Hit me up if you know anything.  

  • There was a weird explosion at an 8,000 square foot home in Plano around 9:00 p.m. last night.  It's normally naturally gas related when something like this happens, but no cause has been announced yet. (I think I found the house on Google Streetview.)

  • Just a casual observation, but Wichita Falls seems to have some pretty beaten down infrastructure. 

  • That big cylinder shaped hunk of metal shutting down I-35 near downtown Dallas yesterday is called an "air plenum."

  • Something to think about the next time you find yourself not being able to afford a home  . . .

  • The not-so-smart former football coach and current senator from Mississippi must not have read his Republican marching orders. As a result, he sounded reasonable and normal.

  • How did they get so mad at each other all of a sudden?

  • Unofficial COVID Wise County Update: It seems like lots of people are coming down with it, you probably aren't at risk of ending up in the hospital, but there is a pretty good chance you'll feel so badly that you wish it didn't happen to you.
