An Open Letter To Texas

Scary Hillary Clinton

Dear Republic of Texas,

You have always been regarded as being the ultimate tough guy state. I was raised to believe that only the hardiest of individuals could make a living there. I have admired from a distance how your judicial system takes care of it’s death row inmates by actually carrying out the sentence while the rest of us let ours die of old age. When Ozzy Osbourne took a whizz on the Alamo, y’all banned him from the state. That is the Texas that has become the stuff of movies and legend.

So what does this have to do with House Parenting or kids? Nothing, unless you consider the fact that Hillary Clinton scares little children. I’m just taking this moment to abuse my powers of blogging to let you guys know that it is up to you to stop the madness.

Please, in the name of the Alamo and for all the stars that shine bright deep in the heart of Texas, just say no.




My Bucket List

I just saw previews of a new movie that got me thinking about life all over again. The movie stars Freeman and Nicholson and looks like it may turn out to be a good flick.

The part that has got me thinking is the basic plot of the movie; two guys, dying of cancer make a “Wish to do list”. Of course one of them is filthy rich and able to dish out the bucks for a little globe trotting.

The way I figure it, at best, I have only about 50 more years to get done whatever I want to do. Factor in my McDonald’s diet and it would appear I have less than 8 years to change the world.

Having said that, here is what I wish to accomplish before going home to glory.

1. Open a Boys Home.

2. Build a house.

3. Ride a Motorcycle from Key West, Florida to Alaska.  

4. Blow up a car. (It’s my list and it can be as creepy as I want it to be).

5. Build a Church.

6. Kayak down the Mississippi.

7. Start an alternative school for kids that can’t function in a already poor public school system.

8. Start a web site that would give positive reviews of Child Care facilities across the US to better help potential and current HP’s trying to find a place to fit in.

9. Home-school my daughter.

10. Collect hot sauce (Long Story).

11. Go deep sea fishing.

12. Go fishing with explosives.

13. Go fishing in a stream with one of them cattle prod things.

14. Write a book.

15. Smoke a Cuban Cigar.

16. Learn Greek.

17. Read Old and New Testament completely thru, front to back without missing a word. (Leviticus always throws me off).

18. Ride to Oceanside, California.

19. See one of my kids earn a Bachelors degree.

20. Find a good web site to buy my Bachelors degree from.

21. See the Alamo.

22. See the Grand Canyon and throw something in it. (A rock, cat, stick, etc…)

23. Drive a drag car.

24. Wear a gay pride t-shirt to a NASCAR event. (Hey Mike, I got tickets to Atlanta want to go?).  

25. Lose 45 pounds.

That’s what I have for now. Some of this stuff is actually in the works (#1 and #9). Others may have to wait until I complete the rest of the bucket list and I’m ready to check out. (#24) -Launch
