READ

So, I got my post taken down, well, my original one.

Am I going to have to start over again?

Seriously, get a debate going, and people get so upset I get into trouble.

Once again....if you're going to get upset about the blog, don't read it. If your going to get upset by what some says, don't complain to higher ups....

Not to Be Outdone, More Obscene Christmas Lights

So, I caught a lot of heat this past year on the Buna " Cock in a Box" lights that are up on Hwy 62.

Sorry, like I said I taught for years in Buna before I figured out what it really was.

Not to be outdone, this city has their own "questionable" Christmas lights.

It appears that they are excited it's Christmas time...




I need to call a special town council meeting here in Lemonville to see if we can come up with our own set of " questionable" lights....

I'm sure I and the other town councilmen will stand around the fire in E.C. Arceneaux's backyard, drink a couple of Keystone Lights and decide it's late, we need to get on to bed....with no really big decisions being made...

Ferguson, MO

I sway back on forth on the situation in Ferguson. I do. I know there are people who feel strongly both ways who read this blog....

That said, I have some major questions.

Does tearing stuff up make your view better appreciated?

Does burning up a Little Caesar's Pizza store help your cause?

Does stealing vodka from the liquor store help your cause?

Does stealing from the auto parts store make your cause legit?

Do you really need to steal hair care products?

Rioting, stealing, burning stuff doesn't help your cause. All it does is make the other side say, " see I told you so..."

The Meat Sweats...

So, the new insurance commericial with Flo has her with her very disfunctional family. Actually, there are two commericials, one with Flo and her family playing pictionary, and the other one having, I assume some sort of of holiday meal.

All charcters are played by the actress who plays Flo.

In the holiday meal, they are eating what many of us call, " a big ass ham." That's a ham big enough for leftovers for the next day, then " sammiches" for the days that follow.

One of the characters makes the comment that it's so much meat, they are getting the " meat sweats."

I'll be honest, I didn't have a clue what " meat sweats" were.

Maybe it's growing up in Texas where we eat huge chunks of meat on a regular basis....so I look up the " ailment."

It supposedly, is caused by consuming too much meat....

I've never had it, and to be honest, don't know anyone who has....maybe it's a Yankee deal?

So, I am suppose to eat huge amounts of meat in the next 48-72 hours. I'll let you know if I get them...

And I Never Got It Right...

This past week, the Texas State Board of Education approved new textbooks for history, government, all social studies classes.

One of the biggest concern was the inclusion of Moses and his influence upon the Founding Fathers of the U.S.

Folks, and I've said this for years, I often wonder about people who depend upon their textbooks to teach history, government, etc.

Look, a textbook should only be used to supplement what is being taught in class. Rarely what I taught followed the text.

I was lucky and Buna didn't have a clue what I was doing, so I taught a pretty standard Liberal Arts government class. You got stuff out of order, you got backgrounds, you got stuff that probably will never be taught in a standard civics class again. I crammed over a year's worth of stuff in a semester...

Economics.....economics.....I'll be honest, I never got it right. I changed the class every year I taught it.

The texts on economics were not changed this past week....I wonder what they have next in store for ideas on money....if Moses is included in government classes, will the tithe be included in economics books? You think I am kidding? Watch....

They Don't Want You to Enjoy Yourself....

So, I catch ABC Morning News and then later another morning news, and both were jumping up and down about you not eating too much on Thanksgiving....low fat this, no butter, no sugar, no gravy....

They say " you'll feel better about yourself."

Really?

I think I'll be disappointed I missed out.

Thanksgiving and Christmas are the two times in the year you should be able to indulge yourself. ( your birthday too, but I am not a big birthday person.)

IF you are like me, and several of you are, I am on a roots and tree bark diet most of the year, and here CBS, CNN, Fox, etc are trying to make me feel bad about overeating on these holidays.

Please, let us enjoy ourselves. Leave us alone.

I'm eating dressing, and having at least two desserts. Maybe three.

Screw you media.....Screw you....

Hug Your Kids

You never know. Sometimes there are events that occur that you cannot explain, and you start to question God.

I know that he is still in charge, but you wonder why he allows certain things to happen.....and we may never know in this life.

We are told that many things we do not understand in this life, we will understand in our next one....and in that life, there will be no more sadness, no more pain. But right now, sometimes we are sad, we suffer.

As many of you know, my son became very ill during college. It is an illness that he deals with still to this day. In part, my weight loss is in anticipation that I may need to donate to him....and there is a real possibility that my donation may kill me....and if it does, so be it.

Remember those in your thoughts and prayers who are suffering in sorrow this day.

And as they go to bed, or as they leave for school, work, whatever, hug your children and tell them that you love them...
