Watch out Tiger. Now I’ve got a big stick, too

I suck at golf, but I have never blamed it on the equipment. “It’s not the bow-and-arrow. It’s the Indian.” (Or in the case of politically correct MSU, it’s the Mustang!) Back in the late 80’s my second wife gave me two presents. She gave me a full set of Ping Eye irons on Christmas…

Righteous ones put up silly fuss over nightclub

Just don’t understand all this fuss about putting a nightclub on Southwest Parkway. By reading all the stories our paper has run on the issue, you might think someone is trying to open up a whore house. “Coming Soon: Chicken Ranch II on 369.” Maybe ZZ Top will write a song about us. But Hooterville…

The blog is back

Not that it went anywhere. And I really didn’t go anywhere either, except to Dallas one weekend for a family wedding. Nope, the blog lull over the summer could mostly be blamed on wrapping myself in the World Cup (much to my wife’s chagrin) and then I took some time off in various parts of…

Zsa Zsa is alive? Are you sure, darling?

I must admit I was stunned by the recent news about Zsa Zsa Gabor. It wasn’t the falling and breaking her hip that was such a surprise to me. The real shocker is that she is still alive. Didn’t she die 20 years ago? Look, I’m a senior citizen, and Zsa Zsa was born almost…

Another Tour De Who has ended; YAWN

The Tour de France has come and gone for another year. And if you actually know the name of the winner — well then all I can say is “Get a Life.” Although I admire the event as a tremendous athletic endeavor, it has no entertainment value whatsoever for me. I’m not a bicycle guy…

Sure hope we don’t lose Luby’s

It’s really hard for me to imagine Hooterville Falls being a non-cafeteria town. The story in our paper today said that Luby’s has been in business here since 1951. I can remember the downtown location on Scott Street and also the one in Parker Square. Lillie Mae playing the piano while you gobbled up chicken…

Rangers open BIG series; Cowboys who?

Most sports fans in our part of the world only ask one thing of the Texas Rangers every summer. Just keep us interested until training camp opens. Once the Cowboys start camp, baseball season is finished around here. Or at least that is how it has been for much of the last 38 years. But…

M.I.A.

Maya Arulpragasam, or the artist known as M.I.A., is one of the remaining “characters” in the music business. She is kind of reclusive to people in the United States, but she produces high quality music. Her new album, Maya, is completely strange and odd and weird, viagra using but at the same time, it is…

Beer Service with Strings

Two things caught my attention this weekend. My entire family, and many of my friends are now using it. Buy viagra without prescription? We would strongly recommend you to consult your doctor before taking a medication. 1. They didn’t serve beer at the Bun B/Slim Thug concert Saturday night because, from what I heard, it…

Facebook really is a big waste of time

Betty White is right. Facebook is one huge waste of time. I don’t want to see pictures of my friends’ kids. Compared to my good-looking grandson, they’re all of bunch of ugly ducklings. I don’t care where you are going to spend your weekend. Romance?  Look it up in your thesaurus and you will find…
