    Johnny Crawford dead at age 75

    Many not from the U.S. probably won't know of him, but he portrayed Mark McCain on the old TV show "The Rifleman" playing opposite Chuck Connors as father/son living as ranchers in the town of North Fork. He died yesterday at age 75 from complications of Alzheimer's Disease that he'd been...

    Anyone else besides me can't stand Bruce Buffer

    The guys voice gets on my nuts with all that exaggerated howling and theatrics when introducing the MMA fighters on UFC Cards. His brother, Michael Buffer announces with style and class and this guy is the antithesis of that elegant style and comes off like one of those loudmouth radio...

    Another kid killed due to an idiot adult

    Just saw on the net that an 11 yr. old kid was killed inside a car by a 9 yr. old that was left in the car together while a 32 yr. old woman ran into a WalMart in Dallas to shop. How are these fucking people so irresponsible to allow a kid access to a gun in the first place? The level of...

    Hoarders----I just don't understand their thinking

    There was a story on my home page about a woman from New York that was an award winning set designer for television shows that went missing several months ago and hadn't been heard from. Long story short, her sister hired a company to clean out her place and while doing so, they found her...

    Hate those type phone calls

    The wife and I got a call that her younger brother was found dead earlier today after not logging in for a video conference at his workplace. His supervisors got concerned and after calling several times to his home with no response, called the police to do a welfare check. They gained...

    Raymond van Barneveld gets his new tour card

    Barney decided being retired was not to his liking and wanted to get back on the PDC tour, but had to go through Q-School to earn his tour card and recently did that. He can participate in PDC tournaments once again, but just what version of Barney will show up is anyone's guess. Is it going...

    Well, today sucked

    I was busy seasoning some ground pork to make into sausage links and my wife was on the phone with a friend from Dallas who has a brother living in our city that we are good friends with. The sister was concerned since she hadn't gotten a call back from him despite leaving several messages...

    OK, anybody else watching the PDC World Championship of Darts

    I just got done watching the Gerwyn Price vs Stephen Bunting match and Price takes it by a score of 6 sets to 4. Very hard fought match and when tied at 4 sets all, it looked like it was anybody's game to win but Price rose to the occasion and buckled down to win. Up next is the second...

    New Scam I just got

    I went to delete my junk mail and found an e-mail from the FBI letting me know they seized an envelope in N.Y. that contained a certified payment of 4.1 million dollars and the recipient was me. All I have to do is contact them in 72 hours and give them all the pertinent information to...

    Charley Pride dies of Covid complications at age 86

    One of my favorite country artists, Charley Pride has passed away in Dallas, Texas earlier today. He was a pioneer in country music, breaking the "color barrier" by being signed to a contract by Chet Atkins in 1965 and his first hit song coming in 67 when "Just Between You And Me" broke into...

    Come on Brits, no mention of the Grand Slam of Darts going on now

    I can't believe not one Brit or other European member has mentioned the Grand Slam Of Darts tournament that is currently taking place in Coventry, England. The quarter-finals and today's semi-finals have been some of the best darts I've seen in a long time with many games being decided in the...

    Processed Turkey cost elsewhere??

    I saw an ad in the local paper that one of the local stores is selling whole frozen turkeys 10 lbs. and up for $.19 a lb. this weekend if you purchase at least $30 of other products and if you don't, it will cost you $.39 a lb. Turkey, this time of year, as Thanksgiving approaches tumbles in...

    Alex Trebek dead at age 80

    Just saw this on the news on my home page. No further details were given other than he passed away today but we all know he was suffering from Pancreatic Cancer and I'm' truly surprised at his age he lasted as long as he did after the initial diagnosis. Hats off to the guy and a great game...

    Been away a few days

    We had a Cat 2 Hurricane hit and lost power for a day and cable/internet for 3 before things got on line and back to what passes for normal. The storm wasn't much as far as bad winds and heavy rainfall, but a lot of tree damage, especially the big oaks that line many of the major streets in...

    Gale Sayers, star running back for the Chicago Bears dead at age 77

    Just saw this on my home page. He was one of my favorite running backs when he played for the Bears from 65-71 and retiring young due to knee injuries suffered during his playing days. He was more like a Barry Sanders type back who used his speed and elusiveness to make defenses miss...

    Huge gator caught this alligator season in Morgan City, La.

    I was on a local site that caters to a lot of things in Louisiana and someone posted a pic of one of his cousins that killed a 13 ft. 4 in. alligator just this week. The picture showed it hanging with a strap around its neck and tied to a fork lift that was fully extended. The tail was...

    Well, not one, but 2 big storms seem to be heading our way

    I've been keeping an eye on what is now Tropical Storm Marco that is in the Gulf of Mexico and heading our way. As of now, it is not yet Hurricane strength but could become one before landfall, but they do lose strength once over land, but will bring a shit ton of heavy rainfall to the...

    What a relief!!!

    I had a Drs. appointment yesterday to remove the stent they left in my urinary tract after the last kidney stone removal episode in mid July. I won't go into particular details, but let's just say the procedure to remove the stent is pretty invasive and, though not particularly painful, it...

    Buried the house cat last night

    I was out in the backyard grilling some burgers when I heard my stepdaughter come out the house to get her mom, saying the cat was acting weird. Not long after that my wife came out and called me to come see if I could do anything. The cat laying was on the floor with her front legs out...
