I’m pretty HOT, thanks to Gene Green and the Dems…

HOT! That’s what everything is right now. The weather, politics, me, yadda, yadda, yadda.

I was talkin’ to Miss Judy the other day and we got to comparin’ things today to what they were like when we were growin’ up.

We could, and had to, walk to school every day. Now, kids are picked up at every corner, in every neighborhood. God forbid the little darlings should have to walk a block or two so’s the bus could make a few less stops! We took a sack lunch to school. It might have been baloney, but we lived, didn’t we. Nowadays, the Government supplies free lunch, and breakfast, for anyone who wants it! (How do I get in on that one!).

Used to be that cities and counties built roads, supplied water and sewer, provided fire and police protection, and generally, stayed out of our way.

Now, the city and county genius’s build multi-million dollar sports stadiums for millionaire team owners, let them out of contractual agreements and then pay them for the early cancellation!

In the meantime, streets are falling apart, the sewer system money is gone, the county throws money away at the Central Plant because “they had the money”, on a vendor’s failure to perform, the big City is $150 million in the hole because of the mismanagement of the Genius of Lee. P. Brown, and the Gestapo taxing entities like the Appraisal District and certain school districts answer to no one with their teams of lawyers and conniving weasels.

Yes, I’m pretty hot! I guess venting is a good thing sometimes. As you can see, there is plenty of stuff for this ol cowboy to write about!

Speakin’ of writin’, I did a little research and found out why “The Weenie”, Gene Green was screamin’ about the redistricting plan for Texas. One of the three districts most affected and which will probably become Republican, is the district now controlled by The WEENIE himself.

Congreesman WEENIE, it seems that you are engaged in “purely partisan politics”! Now ain’t that cute! The pot callin’ the kettle black!

By the way congressman, in case you couldn’t tell, I don’t give a good rat’s rearend for you or your politics.

Now, the big question is, “what will you do when you are defeated next election”. I know, why not write about all your “heroic” friends! That should be real interesting.

STOP! See how these things make you crazy?

On to more pleasant things. Joe and Renee Anselmo just had their anniversary. Congrats, y’all!

Many of you know Joe for his famous haircuts at the shop named after him. He loves his job so much that I saw him take a ten dollar bill from a customer…..and give him twelve dollars back!! The best part was that the customer gave Joe a two dollar tip and Joe just said thanks! What a great place to get you ears lowered!

Spent much of the first of the week with good, honest folks- cowboy (and girl) poets, musicians, saddle and spur makers, radio DJ’s and other western folks at the Academy of Western Artists Convention and Awards Show in Ft. Worth. I hope to have a picture or two for you all next week.

I gotta go cool off, so last one out, make sure to shut the gate.

Just a Ridin’,
Your Pard,
Lloyd
