Y’all! What the heck is Go Texan Day you ask? It’s the official kickoff for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. If you’re in a car anywhere near downtown Houston you can expect travel delays to allow for one of more than a dozen trail rides to work their way to Memorial Park. The longest ride, are you ready for this? Starts in the Valley. It’s over 350 miles. The oldest Trail Rider is about 67 years old. Historically they have really crappy weather. I am tickled to say this year has been very good weather wise. The parade will most likely get rained on tomorrow but what the heck, that’s tomorrow. Welcome to Houston Y’all! YeeHaw!
It’s also National Anthem Day
Bought me a new smoker yesterday. It’s a Oklahoma Joe’s offset. I bought it un-assembled just so I could put it together. Hell, that’s half the fun. The instructions were easy enough to follow and from start to stop was a little over an hour. The instructions state on several pages to get help because the bastard has some heavy part. I did get my ass handed to me by the firebox. Twice. But I won. I am really impressed by the speed that it heats up and how easy it is to control the heat. Can’t wait to smoke something. It’ll have to wait till I get back from Jamaica though.
The Civic Club meeting was nice and short last night. No one stepped up to host anything for St. Patricks Day. Oh well. They are looking for a few new officers. Prez, VP and Sec are up and Eileen has agreed to stay on as Treasurer. Think about folks. It really is a lot of fun.
Anyone paying attention to our new Attorney General? Not sure I agree with his decision to recuse himself right now but I am glad to see that after 8 years we finally have an AG with the moral spine to do the right thing. The fact that Pelosi and Schumer are calling for him to resign tells me he’s a good guy. If we could get a belch out of Reid it would be the trifecta of leftist slime. When the CNN Oped page tells you not to hold your breath then I’m pretty sure you’re just slinging the same old shit you wallow in. POS.
