Friday, April 12, 2019 – Part Two

No, you cannot bring back Janis, but we can always remember and sing along.

This is for you, Randy E.

It is also for us, Carolyn Sue, Terry and anybody else. We sounded real good singing this – especially after midnight and lots of tequila.

For the next five days you have been given super powers. These are all the powers you need to make significant changes to anything you desire.

List five things you would change with your super powers.

Today is Ring Day at Texas A&M. Wear it proudly. Whoop!

Happy Friday.


Thursday, April 11, 2019 – Nothing

I have nothing to say. While I am thinking about many things, I have chosen not to say anything today. Instead I am posting a photo of the entrance to the doctor I went to for my knee.

Then I am posting of picture of my cat, Peach with her catnip rat toy. I hope at least of them makes you smile.

Tuesday, April 09, 2019 – Turn Out The Lights – The Party’s Over

And so the Texas Tech Red Raiders ride into the sunset while confetti falls on the Virginia Cavaliers. Did you ever think there would be so much money in confetti?

Nevertheless, the Spanish cowboy guy and all of the Tech fans should be proud. It won’t allow you to achieve flagship status, but maybe next year will be your championship year. Maybe you will share the spotlight with the 2020 Texas A&M Women’s Basketball National Championship Team.

Did you really think I would not snark on Tech?

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 – Notre Dame? Howdy! We Are Back!

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 – Notre Dame? Howdy! We Are Back!

Flashback: March 2018, March Madness, Women’s Sweet 16 Match-up, Texas A&M and Notre Dame

We are headed toward a déjà vu weekend. Last year Texas  A&M lost to Notre Dame by six points in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Tournament.

This year I have composed a lyric sung to the American folk song “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling” that I hope helps this weekend. Feel free to sing along. Even better if you can do an Irish tenor with an Irish accent.

When Irish eyes are blinded

By the Aggies’ maroon and white

You can hear the Twelfth Man yelling

We’ve just begun to fight.


Will Muffet fall off her stillettos

As Carter take charge of the ball?

We shall see you in Chicago

The Aggies are coming to call!


When Aggie hearts are happy

All the world sings Hullabaloo,

For when Aggie hearts are happy

We are WHOOPING it up for you!

Whoop Barn – Highway 6 north – Photo by me.

BTHO Notre Dame!!!

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 – Fat Tuesday – Laissez le bon temps rouler

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 – Fat Tuesday – Laissez le bon temps rouler

It is Mardi Gras Ya’ll. Let the Good Times Roll!

Throw me some beads!

If you are raising your shirt to get some cheap plastic beads you can buy at the party store place, you better have a couple of hurricanes from Pat O’Brian’s inside you. It is cold outside!

Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday” — meaning it is the last opportunity to eat rich food before the fast of Lent begins. It is related to celebrations elsewhere, called “carnivals,” from the Latin words carne and vale,“meat” and “farewell,” meaning a farewell to meat before the abstinence of Lent.

Peace, Love and Gumbo
