The coolers are all cleaned and put up. Same with the tables and EZ Ups. Last thing to do is go clean up the big pit. Anybody want to come and help? That is one cooking machine. probably the best $200 the club ever spent. We got it cleaned up on Friday and fired it up that afternoon. I stoked it again about 10 and one last time about midnight. When Jim and Bryan got up there at 3:30 it was good and hot. When I got there at 4 the charcoal was glowing and covered in turkeys. about 240 pounds worth. With the other 90lbs going into the oiless fryers at the prescribed times. The rotation, injection and triple wrapping got kicked off a little after dawn. I heard from the club treasurer it was near perfect in quantity with minimal leftovers and they served 270 plates. Sorry I couldn't stick around but we had our last soccer game of the season down in Galveston. I heard it was a great event even if a tad light turnout. Glad to hear it and I hope you got a chance to go. We got to visit with some neighbors albeit briefly out back, Even Tommy Delasandri stopped by for a few minutes. Sounds like they are really getting in to Corpus. Before I forget, I want to thank Jay for letting us use his hydraulic log splitter and chainsaw. You saved many a tired old back that day pal. I'll get it back to you this weekend. It's at my place if you need it sooner. Thanksgiving is next week. If you're travelling please be safe. Next up.. Christmas! can you believe it?!
My inbox lit up yesterday. Mostly from anon. What to do about anon.... What to do about NS... What to do about the PD.... what to do about the inuendos, the name calling, rumors, the guessing. Christ people! The only thing you should be concerned about is who you're going to vote for in 180 days. To whoever out there is afraid of the police, you need help. I'd suggest you start with Chief Cook. If you don't like his answers then you go see the City Administrator and find out what your recourse is as a citizen. Follow it. We've had enough personal investigations to last a lifetime. Unless you're a bad guy then I am glad you're afraid of our police department. That tells me they are doing their job and staying out of politics. That shit storm isn't over by a long shot. I have never heard a complaint about either of the officers you folks are bitching about concerning their professional behavior. That's a good thing. As to their personal behavior thats between them and their conscience and it's none of my damned business. Odds are it's none of yours either. If you want a more thorough background check for our city employees then get your butt elected and change it. The police department Isn't broken. It's bent to shit but I think it can be mended. And yes I think it will require a few more personell changes and I think all the grownups knows that.
I'm not thrilled with this blog being hijacked for all this bullshit I'm reading on here. I got out of high school in 1971 but I swear to God it wasn't as petty as some of the crap you floks are wasting electrons on. If you are that bored take up a hobby. Two words constructive critisiscm. Stop with the frekin name calling already. It's old, it's unproductive, It's boring and it's starting to piss me off. I asked a few posts back what questions you would ask a potential candidate and I saw zip responses. Farther back I asked what you saw in the future for this palce and got exactly squat. If you think this blog is just a place for you to come and piss and moan think again. I'll turn anon off so we can get back to the business of getting our little paradise back on track. I see Roselyn is tossing in a few names, you go girl, but I'm not seeing these names reply. WE need to find folks who are interested first. Focus is the key and I don't see it. Pinks, Greens, Beiges, Blacks and Bug Jars? Are you shittin' me? We need two unbiased, fair and reasonable candidates. I say two because I think Councilman Sowrey is doing as good a job as any we've had. It's a given that Heckle and Jeckle have to go. But if I was so inclined and I was reading this blog I don't know what I'd think after reading some of these comments. Look for yourself. Read the last weeks worth and ask yourself if you would work for these people.........
Jim, let's talk about the guest blogger. I need a nightcap.
What do you call a fish with no eyes? A fsh
