Raining Today

Not much, but we never complain about getting rain here. Come July, we will have days and days of high nineties temps and drought until October.

Thunderstorms in the forecast for tomorrow, and a sunny and hot weekend. Time to mow if it dries out enough.

The wife is still doing well after her J&J vax, with no noticeable side effects. It has been 9 days.

She is scheduled to fly to Ft Worth on the 11th to get her next round of rituximab IV drip; at least the first one. each dose takes two, two weeks apart. She will stay at SIL’s. I cannot say she is looking forward to visiting. What a mess in that family. A whole separate post on their antics would be required to cover all the inadequacies and insanity.

I am enjoying working in the kitchen after my grocery trip on Tuesday.

My first task was making a batch of guisada. I love that stuff. Guisada tacos with lettuce and tomato, beans and cheese are the best. The local El Pato restaurants down in the RGV introduced me to breakfast tacos back in the 70s. 99 varieties of tacos and assorted plates…delicious…too many carbs for a diabetic though, so I must remain sensible, and exercise more to compensate.

Last night was my first attempt at chicken stew. It turned out well; even the wife liked it.

Today I am making beef enchiladas. Another high carb dish, but worth the effort..and sacrifice…another round on the elliptical.

I still have a couple days before my request to Ebay for a refund on the coffee maker.

I have not seen the new kittycats yet..it’s only been a week. The other kittycat had hers, and has since abandoned them, as yesterday, she was standing outside our door, waiting for a meal…musta voted for Biden.

I was disappointed to find out that my barber shop has closed until further notice. I guess my $20 haircuts did not help much.

 

San Jacinto Day..April 21

San Jacinto Day here in Texas was the day 185 years ago that the Texans kicked ass on the Mexican army, resulting in its independence from Mexico.

Many recall the battle of Goliad where another battle took place, in which the Texas army was overwhelmed by the Mexican army, and surrendered. However, the Mexican army slaughtered them all…just for kicks.

Col Fannin, the leader of the Texas army, was the last executed and requested that he a. be shot in the heart and not be shot in the face

b. his possessions be returned to his family

c. given a Christian burial

The Mexicans shot him in the face, took his possessions, and burned his body. Nah, no residual animosity there…

“Remember Goliad!” was one of the battle cries during the battle at San Jacinto.

No, we don’t have days off for such events here in Texas. We used to be taught Texas history back in the day when real education of history was practical; not made up bullshit invented by some self serving crack smoking liberals.

What about the rest of the country? Are any of you old enough to remember having classes in your state of its history?

Given Texas’ size and the varied topographies involved, there are many aspects of its history…Texas Mexico war, the many native American tribes in the state, the settlement of the Germans, history of the ports Galveston, Houston, Corpus, the old west cities of Waco and Abilene and their own histories… a lot to learn about still. Supposedly, the last battle of the Civil War was fought outside of Brownsville.

South Padre Island ownership is still contested by the Balli family, saying they own it as a gift from the King of Spain way back when. Give it up, Balli family. There is no way in hell Texas will give you South Padre Island. It’s called WAR, and land is lost during war.

There are still those that say the US “stole” Texas from Mexico…Mexican schools teach that.

As they say “kings write history”.

I’d bet a dollar that even if the US gave Texas back to Mexico, wherever the new border was, the US would still be inundated with illegal aliens from the south.

Why Is Choco Kammie Laughing?

Stoned..everybody knows that smoking pot enhances one’s giggle box..

Things that are normally “ho hum” can turn into uncontrollable fits of guffaws..

Did someone tell her they were going to impeach Maxipad Waters?

Is she auditioning for the Wicked Witch of the West role in the new movie “La La Land: The Movie”?

Has she been reading the jokes over at Vern’s Stories?

The gum tree is a gummy bear tree, laden with THC filled gummy bears. The monkeys in the tree are the rest of the Congressional Democrats.

OR…she read that BLM organizers in Minneapolis were going to return all looted items, and rebuild the city.

Hell, that makes ME laugh too!

I’d Likely Vote Same

if my name was on that list.

‘Enemy of the People’: Minneapolis Star-Tribune Publishes Biographical Information of Derek Chauvin Trial Jurors

This opens up a new precedent in jury trials.

If a sleaze reporter can put together enough information on jurors in ANY trial and publish this information, who in their right mind would vote ‘not guilty’?

The reporter(s) should be charged with jury tampering…oh I forgot. this is no longer the land of the free.

h/t to Ken Lane

That pretty much sums it up, and should answer any and all questions about BLM.

Knee-grows don’t want justice; they want what they want; usually a flat panel TV is enough, especially if they can steal it.

It is a typical liberal mindset, usually begins when the cop stops a black person for one violation or another…regardless of what they were doing, the cops were wrong.

I’m tellin’ ya, this country is being slowly taken over by Mexican cartels, and BLM activists.

George Floyd was a convicted felon, wife beater, thief, counterfeiter, drug dealer and user, and the knee-grows put him on a saintly pedestal. True to form, they move forward on the ‘dumbing down of America’.

Hell, the way the trend is going, Al Sharpton could be the next President.

Furthermore, it looks like Maxipad Waters will get off the hook for jury tampering too.

It used to be ‘give ’em what they want, and they’ll go away’…kind of like the theme from “Storm Of The Century”…which by the way, IMO is one of the better Stephen King movies.

Now, they won’t go away. They got a guilt verdict, and they’re still marching in the streets. If they would actually stop marching, and get jobs, perhaps their lives would improve.

Nah, that’s crazy talk. They are ALL getting paid.

 

Joke of the Day

My friend Dave was a single guy living at home with his Father and working in the family business. He knew that he would inherit a fortune once his sickly Father died.

Dave wanted two things:

1. To learn how to invest his inheritance.
2. To find a wife to share his fortune.

One evening at an investment meeting, he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away.

“I may look like just an ordinary man,” he said to her, “but in just a few years, my Father will die, and I’ll inherit $20 million dollars.”

Impressed, the woman requested his business card.

Two weeks later, she became his Stepmother.

 

The Battle At Ebay Begins

I had a sneaking feeling when I ordered this that there could be problems, given the only reviews the seller had was a situation similar to mine.

They always say “if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is”. I think that’s true in this case.

I tried to dispute the transaction at Paypal, but they referred it to Ebay…after all, Paypal was created by Ebay.

It’ll take a while, but I’ll get my money back, if I can halt the poison pen letters..sigh..people are so sensitive.

Ebay says I cannot move forward until the 24th.

There is a very high probability that the seller will not respond, and Ebay will have to reimburse me for the charges out of their own pocket.

Given the greed of Ebay, they did not discontinue this seller, even though it appears obvious that he/she/it is a Chinese scammer.

Let me ask you this…is it possible to run a scam using FedEx and falsifying the tracking information?

I am thinking that anything is possible with a computer.

Bud Of The Day…Final

The Bruce Banner

Bruce Banner Autoflower Marijuana Seeds

“You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry” bud. Supposedly, a 25% THC content.

Back in the day, it is estimated that the stuff we used to smoke was maybe 12%…that’s what I heard.

With all the genetic engineering going on now with hybrids, there seems to be a huge increase in the quality…
