Aggies vs. Pigs Recap

Review TAMU vs. University of Arkansas 2017 Win 50-43 O/T Okay, the best news of the day is that I survived. Yes, ha, ha, ha but for an old man this game, damn near allowed Lynn to collect on my assets and a very nice Life Insurance policy. Before I begin, I have to say […]

Mosquitoes Suck (Literally)

I really hate mosquitoes. My daughter gets eaten alive. As a toddler, she loves to be outside so we often go on walks in the near by green belt. It’s a wonderful place, but when I get back, it is a win to come out with less than 3 or 4 bites. 1 or 2 […]

Aggies vs. Arkansas Preview

Cactus (->) Cacti, Discus (no ->) Disci…(English is weird).

Cacti are cool…as long as you don’t get speared by one. Actually, the little sliver things (glochids) are sometime worse than the daggers (spines). Also, since we are talking central Texas, have you ever tried to eat one of the pears (technically called “tunas”-how funny is that?)? I have eaten them several times. They are […]
