I knew a child from the Dallas area because her Dad was a client. I watched her grow up. She grew up large, a young lady almost 6 feet tall. Her dream was to be a sheriff's deputy.
The vet had asked me to come take a look, see if I wanted the dumped dog, and I took her home.
Whoever you are, I must thank you from the bottom of my heart for leaving your overweight young Blue Tick Coon Hound running down the highway after you threw her out.
I had not been ill other than the occasional seasonal flu in 30 years. Then, I had something awful happen I went to bed one night, just fine, then awakened to a body I didn't recognize, and that did not function!
The precise night I lost function was hours after my mom's funeral. The stress of it looms large.
I haz it. Today. I rebelled just a bit.
I will be 62 years old in a week. I miss Steve McQueen.
I just hung up on a friend who was spouting off about how anybody could always buy health insurance, and how he should not have to pay taxes for those slackers to buy what he was always buying due to his hard work for Mobile Oil, and that now that he is on Medicare, he has to actually pay for it, and blah blah...
I may have just lost a damn friend over Fox News crap.

My Dad was a soldier in the D-Day landing, more particularly, Utah Beach.
I know exactly squat about the Masons, but boy, do I remember this Masonic Lodge incident well, as the fall out lasted for over 40 years.
As I said, I know little about the Masons, but I sure remember "black balling" of Mr. Dobb.
And I also know about "black balling" aspiring attorneys!
Please follow below for the short story, and feel free to educate us all about Masons!
My WWII vet dad passed away November 4th, 2012. At that time, I was not only having difficulties navigating his loss, but also this site. I wanted to post something about it, as he was the next-to-last horse cav soldier in my Texas County to pass on, but in truth, I can still barely discuss him, much less his death.
This is about his cow theft.
Please read below. It is not easy to steal a cow.
I never thought so. Until today. Until I attended the viewing of my Mom's body, and I kept hearing over, and over, "she looks so beautiful".
I have written about my Dad, his horrific war wounds sustained in D-Day, but I wish to pass this along.
