Shamelessly poached from emails I get and sites I visit. I was so depressed last night thinking about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc., I called the Suicide Hotline. I got a call center in Afghanistan, and when I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited, and asked … Continue reading Friday Funnies
The lamp is burnin' low upon my table topThe snow is softly fallingThe air is still in the silence of my roomI hear your voice softly calling If I could only have you nearTo breathe a sigh or twoI would be happy just to hold the hands I loveOn this winter night with youThe smoke … Continue reading Happy Anniversary
I pretty much will wear a hat whenever I will be outside for any period of time. Reason being, I'm bald, and it's Texas where your noggin can get fried in under an hour. So I have a collection of baseball caps. Reason for a collection is I destroy them. You sweat like a champion … Continue reading Fixing Hats
While I've been off this week, it hasn't all been fooling on my computer and drinking beer. I haven't been on the computer that much. On the agenda is new tires for the hot rod. But, I really didn't feel like it today. I'm not finding tires priced within my comfort zone. The ones that … Continue reading Check That One Off The List

The one at at the end that makes the sprinkles. So, I bought a metal can. That one was actually fantastic. … Continue reading Redneck Watering Can

Do you think there's a soul under 40 that could even dream of those lyrics? or even the situation that caused the song to be crafted in the first place? BB King's voice is epic. I can't think of another singer with that tenor and power. And the dude's what? Over … Continue reading Sunday Music
My new mental patient channel on Youtubes is ViceGrip Garage. I can watch this dude all day. What he does is find abandoned relics, gets them running, and drives them home. Usually. Although one episode he got beaten by an F-250 that spent way to long rotting. Why do I like this? First and foremost, … Continue reading I can watch this all day
Had the week off last week, and tried like hell to get stuff done that has been languishing around here for weeks. I still need to finish my network. I have the extra access point up, but couldn't do much else. Herself was home all week as well, and I can't drop the interwebs while … Continue reading Still Fun, but I got to work at it more.
I like to joke that there are two lines you'll hear in Texas when talking about something. "You gotta get you one of those" and "Them are good". It's funny because I've had the lowliest worker say that, as well as my double - masters degreed boss when I first arrived. "You gotta get you … Continue reading You gotta get you one..
I'll say up front that this is one of the best books I've read in the last year. It's the story of a man coming to redemption and discerning who he is and what God wants him to do with his life. I'm glad I bought the paper version for reasons you'll see below. I first … Continue reading American Pilgrim
