To answer a few questions (from the bulletin board)… My T-shirt currently says: “BEER… Not just for breakfast anymore.” (I bought it in the 1990s, when I did an awful lot of drinking. [smile].) Describe myself in one word: impossible

OTHER NEWS My cousin HC has moved back to Oklahoma! This makes me happy, mainly because she was one of my very best friends while we grew up, but also because it’s nice to have more of the family around here. She won’t be living in Seminole, except for a short time, while her house[…]

Remember, a couple of weeks ago, when I mentioned getting punched in the face (June 15, I think). We thought it was over when I declined to file charges, and the culprit shook my hand, apologizing sincerely for the incident. Well… it’s not over. As usual, in a small town, word will spread. From cop[…]

Seems I’ve actually hit a nerve with that post about the government chipping away at people’s rights. My friend Cat added the following comment: “…try these: In Texas, if you don’t have a state-issued ID on your person at any given time you can and will be taken to jail and held for a minimum[…]

My very good, longtime friend Mark made this comment about my last entry: “…The reporter issue has been distorted somewhat. It has been brewing for several years because there have been several instances where reporters made up information and sources to get a good story; remember the Dan Rather thingy. The information, if true, could[…]

I read on a blog where some 15-year-old kid called a particular band “the greatest band ever.” Doesn’t that seem a little idiotic? When the truth is that The Bloodhound Gang is the greatest band ever. (Ha! That was a joke. To quote Good Will Hunting, “I was being ironical.”) The BTK murderer pleaded guilty[…]

Ah. “Shaun of the Dead” was one of the movies I rented last night. It was better than I had expected (I hadn’t expected much.) Lots of people died. No nudity. Lots of cussing. “Fuck-a-doodle-doo” was one of my favorites — haven’t heard that in a while. I had French toast for lunch today, with[…]

After finishing a 59-hour work-week, for which I was only paid for 40 hours, I visited my parents’ house. My sister Shari was visiting from Texas, with her husband and their growing brood of children. I think she was heavily influenced by reading “Cheaper by the Dozen” when we were younger. It’s a book about[…]

I may go see a movie tonight. Then again, I might not. After my 16-hour workday yesterday (I had 42 hours for the week, before I came in this morning), I’m a little worn out. After today, I’ve worked 51 hours for the week, and still have tomorrow to go. Moral of the story: don’t[…]

HazMat Exercise

Today (Thursday) was another in a series of long days. But today was completely different. All day long, I was surrounded by live ammunition, machine guns, Humvees, Chinook helicopters, uniformed soldiers, hyped-up officers, clanging alarms, flashing lights, and quite a bit of testosterone. I also got sunburned, and managed to lose about three quarts of[…]

Got to work a few minutes late (8:15 a.m.), and jumped right in to the fray. In three hours, I (1) compiled my police reports (three different law enforcement agencies), fire reports (three fire departments); (2) typed them, (3) formatted my pics from last night’s hilariousness, (4) laid out the page they would all go[…]

This morning, I garnered what little information I could about the “massive head wound” from last night (victim: Jim Bob Sandfur, weapon: tire tool) and then my boss and I headed out to the highway, making our pilgrimage to OKC. The Daily Oklahoman’s office building is massive, and compares to our office building like New[…]

I was on the phone with my cousin (HC), when the police scanner started going crazy. First, a man was hit in the head with a tire tool, just behind the EZ-Mart in Seminole (a block from my house.) I was about to drive there to get pictures, etc., when another call came in. There[…]
