I can't believe that it has been over two years since I posted on this thing last.
I don't work for the government any more. I am in private practice with my wife at Henry and Henry.
Our office is in Dr. Ragsdale's building at 524 North Locust in Denton. We are Suite J.
I should start attending the blog again.
Alot has happened this summer.

Do you want diesel with that hot dog?

  • The sign guys at the Exxon at Teasley and I-35E in Denton never cease to amaze. Do you think they really see the humor in this?
  • Diesel hot dogs?
  • Also, got home this evening, and I was watching the UConn/Kentucky final four game only to see something hopping along on the floor of my second floor landing. I see it go into my bathroom, and it's a little bird. How in the world did it get in the house. Luckily, we were able to catch it without hurting it or me, and I was able to let it out safely. Too much excitement after a long drive. Maybe a diesel hot dog would help.

This doesn't seem like it would be so yummy...

This is the marquis from the Exxon at Teasley and I-35E in Denton.
I don't know what "Diesel Pumpkin Spice" is, but it doesn't sound very appetizing.
I have seen this sign for the past week or so, and I meant to take a picture of it, but I was always in a hurry.
Got a chance today.

Blast from the Past...

Most of you know, or may not know, or actually may not even care that I grew up in Oklahoma City. We did not come to Texas until I was 16 years old.
Every so often a tune comes into my head from when I was a kid, and 40 years later I can remember every word of the B.C. Clark Jewelers Anniversary Sale Jingle.
Why? I really don't know except that there probably was not a single Christmas season since I was very, very young that this song did not play on the television many times a day.
That was back in the time when there were only 3 real TV channels in OK City: 4 was NBC, 5 was ABC, and 9 was CBS. 13 (PBS) was nearly always there, but we didn't watch it that much.
So, this tune is running endlessly through my brain this evening which gives me the thought to google BC Clark Jewelers in OKC. It comes up on Wikipedia as being known for the famous jingle that was written for them in 1956. Since I am brought into the world in September 1957, I hear this song every year almost from the day I am born.
Weird I know, but doesn't everyone have something like that? Some little tie to the old days that brings up the feelings of childhood?

It's all fun and games...

...until someone loses an eye.

A 21 year old American student is, for some reason, protesting the Israeli use of force against an Islamic flotilla that was aggressively vying for a confrontation with the Israeli government.
The Obama administration is making a huge mistake siding against Israel.
I don't think that Israel has as high a tolerance of hippies as the United States.
She's lucky to be alive, and she should be gratified that Israel apologized at all.
I'm just saying...

And did you know...

That Obama has sent Holder (Eric Holder, US Attorney General) to start collecting information for civil suits and criminal prosecutions against BP?
That may be necessary later, but perhaps it would be best if he (Obama) just got out of the way and let this leak get plugged before they start hauling people into federal court and in front of Congress. Statutes of Limitations are long, and there will be plenty of time to play the blame game. It seems to me that getting this thing stopped should be the priority for BP and the Obama Regime.
