Jus Saying — Wednesday Hubris From The Oklahoma Panhandler


The guy in front of me orders, and then when finished looks at me, and flatly states to the girl, his name is "The Mouth From The South.” Now I did not actually know this person, and found this to be offensive. Instead of nailing him, I took it in stride, and proceeded to ignore him the rest of the evening. It seems to me that people are too quick with the name calling these days.

Dirty Yellow Dawg Democrat in The Slow Lane ….

Oklahoma Indians are advertising their casino off the Interstate (Remember when they sat on the side of the road and sold you their trinkets?  Those days are long gone).  “Luck has no limits, a winner every seven seconds.”  Is how the sign reads.  So if this is true (which I sincerely doubt) why do we have all these expressions in our social vocabulary?

We are so out of here …

Old Store

Leaving for awhile, y’all try and be nice to each other, we are heading out this morning to parts unknown and totally new adventures.  Try not to kill each other in our absence, we will see you when we get back.  Hammer Down, Hammer Down, six on the floor, the other one out the ______ door … Hammer Down.

Perhaps the only hope left is devine.  Time to humble myself and ask for assistance.  A woman’s prayer and then a man’s prayer may be the order of the day

Golden State …

Unregulated joy and fantasy this Monday morning.  A new political endomorphic high for the rich has been proclaimed.

I got my refund on Saturday!

Afternoon Winds Of Spring

twisterA little late with my hauling today, had a doctor’s appointment this morning and that kind of set the tone for the day.  Another visit to the VA such a depressing place but we will not go there.

Let’s try this instead.

Oklahoma’s fickle weather spirit is again teasing us, kind of nice, trees are blooming, you can walk five feet, before sneezing. But we know that could change in an instant. Once again, Mother Nature is doing her best to lick us into shape. Putting forth her finest effort to make us ready or presentable, much like a mother bear or father bear with new cubs.

It’s About Time … Off The Wall

10561597_10204674105265315_8484038910465730662_nSpring!  This is the time of the year when I put the lawn-chair furniture on the front porch and soak up the best parts of the day. 

This morning I was out there early, real early, sitting in the still of the morning, before the sun had come up.
