.......ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD.......

I was on line reading my emails when I gor one from MOJO and said she was trying to call me and if I wanted to talk to get off the computer...so I did..we spent nearly 3 hours catching up..it was blissfull....really....she is taking a vacation to go see her Grandma in New Mexico for a week and then coming to Texas to visit with the rest of her family. Her Grandma is 83 and she wants to see her and Iam glad of that..her Grandma loves her very much and has been there for her and Iam glad she has her in her life.She was talking about how everyone was volunteering to pick her up but no one had decided for sure.....so I said I can come up in the truck..have brand new tires and going to get a oil change so sholdn't be a problem. Also said I could make sure I had plenty of library books, food etc. so that I wouln't need the truck and she could take it and wouldn't have to depend on people picking her up and taking her where she wanted to go and could leave when she wanted to....So that will work out for her...No biggy, I have plenty of people that can take me here in West if I do need to get anything...and would feel better knowing she had transportation so she could come and go as she pleased...I don't worry about her coming back and being around her friends who are still drinking as she is strong in that regard, but I know she will be around them and will feel the need to get the fuck away from them too, and knowing she can leave when she wants will make her feel better and me too...
She rescued a pit..his name is pepper...he was abused and most likely fought and is about 4 years old..she is doing very well with him..and I'm so proud of her for taking on the responsability of giving him a good loving home...Bailey did pass on and we didn't talk about that much..We just had a great great phone call and just so glad I will get to see her...I have missed her so much...life is good...just hope the Goddess sees fit to make the weather nice and spring like for her while she is here..all that cool weather in San Francisco has got her spoilt..and the heat always did knock her out..so it would be nice if it was good weather for her visit...
to other news.....
I got a email from my friend Mary Duty in Waco, who with her and her husband own the best pizza parlor in Waco, Texas and also the headquarters for our county for geting Kinky elected and gathering signitures for him...anyhow..the email said for people who would like to show their support for our country while they do their boycott Monday and wearing white for solidarity...that if we could wear red or blue and shop like a mother fucker on Monday..those were not exactly her words...I sorta rewrote the intent of the email...what we are being asked to do is...wear red or blue and shop for your mothers day presents, fathers day presents, birthday presentss, early Christmas etc..on Monday..and let the stores know..your are doing it in reply to the boycott...I am...and hope you do too....Iam wearing a red tshirt and thinking about going to my friend who is the local artist and sign painter in town and see if he will make me up a sign that says "shop on Monday to boycott the boycott"....which is better than my "wetbacks go home" sign I had considered..
.......sooooooo wear red or blue and shop till you drop.......

.......ISN'T THAT PRECIOUS.......

If you received my email you will get the title of this post..if not...it's the southern way of saying "I don't give a shit."
It's a great Texas day out..my pair of Cardinals are making woopee in the bushes by one of the trees in my yard..Some how I have acquired a lame bird who spents almost all day long on my porch walking around trying to avoid Rocky..who is sick with a cat cold or alergies and when he wants to go outside I go to the door first and kinda shoo the bird away..which means he waddles out of the yard and hides under the truck until Rocky wanders off..He looks something like the grackles but is fatter and not as long looking..and he can fly..but not high and not far..he stays pretty much on my porch, yard or under the truck...he goes to the neighbors yard if Rocky decides he wants to fuck with the birds by sunning in the yard.For the first time since I have been putting seed on the porch the Blue Jays have come on the porch to eat..Man are they beautiful...not as pretty as the Cardinals, but the blue is such a vibrant blue. I got a Texas Bird book from the library and still can't figure out what the little brown birds are..they are wrens of some sort but I still can't figure out what the little gray ones with black tops are...oh well, I just like watching them and enjoy their visits.
I have been trying to think of something that I can do as an American citizen to show my protest about the immigrant boycott Monday...but so far anything I come up with will net me about a week in jail..but I am still thinking..I close my eyes and try to picture me with a sign but when I do ..the sign always says 'BUSH IS A DUMBSHIT ASSHOLE FUCKER AND IS NOT FROM TEXAS"...so need to work on that..I was thinking 'Illegal aliens go home and fix your own country'...but most of them can't read English..
While I am on my soap box I am so pissed about Exxon's 1st-quarter net of $8.4 billion ...them fuckers...and they act like "hey, it's just business folks, it's the American Way."...yeah, well so is dragging your ass into the alley and kicking your ass...fuckers...I'm thinking horse and buggy...carpooling, and you guys, sell them fucking suv's...for the sake of all that is holy..sell them motherfucking gas guzzling hogs...life is to short to be in line behind you at a gas station..while you spend $300 to fill your tank.
fuck me till I'm 10% ethanol..

OOPS, I FORGOT TO TAG 6 PEOPLE..HERE TIS


1. TEX...CAN'T WAIT FOR THAT ONE
2. LEO...HUH HUH
3. JUNEBUGG...HIS SHOULD BE GOOD
4. DAN...YU SICK PUPPY ..LET 'ER RIP
5. NORMY...BRACE YOURSELF
6. SUZ(BEANSIDHE). HEHEEE

.......NUESTRO HIMNO.......

If this isn't enought to piss you off...nothing will...Nuestro Himno that is the new Spanish version of our National Anthem, the Star-Spangled Banner. This is the brilliant idea of British producer Adam Kidron, he said he saw it as an ode to the millions of immigrants seeking a better life...Excuse the fuck out of me you Bristish mother fucker..why didn't you do a version of God Bless The Queen..and leave our national anthem the fuck along. In the week that he announced the song that features Wyclef Jean, hip-hop star Pitbull and Puerto Rican singers Carlos Ponce and Olga Tanon, it has not been well received. Many internet bloggers and others are very angry by the thought of "The Star-Spangled Banner" sung in any language but English.
"Would the French accept people singing the La Marseillaise in English as a sign of French patriotism? Of course not," said Mark Krikorian, head of the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies, a think tank that supports tighter immigration controls.
The initial version of Nuestro Himno,or :"Our Anthem," comes out today and uses lyrics based closely on the English-language original, said Mr. Kidron, who heads the record label Urban Box Office.
Pro-immigration rallies are planned around the country for Monday, and the record label is urging Hispanic radio stations nationwide to play the cut at 6pm,CDT, today in a sign of solidarity.
Ok, about here is where I lose it...with the article , with the dipshit British guy, with the illegal aliens, with the whole entire fucking ordeal...listen to this shit...
A remix to be released in June will contain several lines in English that condemn U.S. immigrations laws. Among them:"These kids have no parents, cause all of these mean laws...Let's not start a war with all these hard workers, they can't help where they were born."
A resident of the U.S. for 16 years, maintains the changes are fitting, after all he says American immigrants borrowed the melody of the Star-Spangled Banner' from an English drinking song.
"There's no attempt to usurp anything. The intent is to communicate,:" Mr. Kidron said. "I wanted to show my thanks to these people who buy my records and listen to the music we release and do the jobs I don't want to do."
I am so pissed I don't know if I can actually type this well enough to explain my anger and what I think I will do about it....
I don't buy records, cds, etc from Urban Box Office..but there are those that do...WELL, STOP IT...STOP BUYING ANYTHING OF THIS MAN'S. Let him haul his traitorous ass back to England..I wish they would take away his citizenship....now.
Monday they are going to protest by not going to work? Will avoid places and not spend their money? No one loves Mexican food more than I do...but I say lets stop going to Taco Bueno, Taco Bell, El Conquistidor, and all the other Mexican resturants. Don't buy El Paso products, or any other product that sells mexican foods, no taco shells, no tamalies, buy nothing that comes from Mexico. No mexican limes, lemons, or fruit of any kind.Get you a sign and stand in front of your local grocery store...one that says don't buy Mexican products..Wave your little American flag..I think we can shut them down a lot faster than they can shut us down..which is what they want to do..they want US...as is us and in the US to give in to them because they said so...welll fuck a bunch of mexican immigrants..I was sorta kinda on the line about this immigration problem..felt sorry for them and wished them well..but after this fucking national anthem in Spanish thing showed up ..well, you pushed me to a side for sure...now I am against it...I want all of you to pack your bags, bundle up your many kids and get the fuck out of my country...My COUNTRY....go back to your country and make it better..do your protesting there to your government and tell them to make things better there for you and leave us the fuck alone...if you all go back home there is a good chance our government will raise our wages and we won't need your $3.35 asses working our jobs...Go the fuck home...you're not wanted here...nor needed .....go make Mexico fix their system so you can get health care, free food, and benefits. I don't care how bad it is there...I know that it is going to be really rough out here for you pretty soon..Because I can see it coming...redneck mentality...already a case of it in the Dallas paper..where two redneck boys beat the shit out of and sodimized a Mexican kid for trying to kiss a girl at a party...No it is not right and it is wrong what they did, and I hope they pay highly for the crime...but that will not stop it..There are more dumb rednecks out there than there are Mexicans...that's a fact.
I am so pissed...I wanted to be a good caring person...but somethings you just don't fuck with...and no matter how hard it is to sing that song, and no matter that we took a English drinking song and made it our anthem....our kinfolk are the ones who fought and made this country and yes we were immigrants...but that was over 200 years ago...it's ours now..we worked for it and we don't need it taken away from us by you....go home...NOW...

anyone that doesn't agree with this blog can kiss my ass and go someplace else.

.......SIX WEIRD THINGS ABOUT ME?.......

Justin tagged me, Sooner and Babs to make a list of six weird things about us...I would rather write about six weird things about Sooner and Babs than me..oh well, fuckit..here goes.
1. I have this 'thing'(?) about the number 7...I have things arranged on the wall and they have to be arranged in numbers 7, 14, 21, etc. like 7 pictures on the wall, 21 nick nacks on one shelf, 14 on another...everything has to be done in 7's...don't ask me..I haven't a clue..
2. I have the ability to blink things away...I have had bad things happen to me in the past and if I start to remember them I blink 7 times and they go away...don't ask me ..I don't have a clue..I know it works.
3. when giving directions I always say go forward(never go straight) instead of go straight ahead...everyone in the family says it now...go forward, never go straight....
4. I am still very very pissed at NBC for canceling Another World. It has been over 10 years and I still hate them for that. I would rather set myself on fire than watch Passions...stupid fucking idiot tv show.I still want to know what Rachel Corey is up to..
5.I hold grudges...and no matter how long it takes, if I think you have fucked me over or someone I love, I will get even ..and in spades....Nobody does revenge better than Jackiesue..remember ...I am a Scorpio....
6. I really belive I have mystical powers...
is that weird enough for you?..I have more..It took me 3 hours to narrow it down to these 6. My first list was 83....then it was 194, then it was 901,035..so whittling it down to 6 was hard...wanted to make sure there was nothing on the list that would get me arrested or thrown out of any more family reunions...I actually like being weird...it has always made me nervous to think I might be 'normal'...how scary is that...normal....hey, that would look good on my tombstone...'well, she wasn't normal'....along with me giving the finger from inside my coffin...that would go along way to makeing me not normal..being normal is like wearing someone else's underwear...it's not healthy and it rides up in your crotch.

.......LIVE TILL I'M 90.......

I read an article in the DAM NEWS that women are expected to live into their 90's....damn! Kill me now.I'm almost 63 and I'm fuckennear wore out.What will I be like if I live to be 90? I try to get a mental picture of me at 90 but all I can see is an older version of me...really really pissed...Now let me tell you, I am in no hurry to croak...and if and when you do hear that I am croaked...know that I did not go gently into the good night...But I know living until im 90 and not being in good mental health is enough to make me start taking better care of myself...What would be worse than to live to be 90 and not know where you are, who you are or what's up? I can see me in the West Rest Home waving my cane around and swearing about Forest Gump...hmm that rhymed..There may be a song in there someplace..Hopefully I will out live Forest and can spit on his grave...I am trying to think of some good reasons to be glad that I will live to be 90 and other than having longer time to fuck with people...not much..Men are supposed to live until they are in their 80's...Great! younger men...
With global warming the way it is,I will probably be sitting on a rock in the middle of Texas surrounded by water and ice with the temperture at 137degrees..maybe the Cowboys will have won the Super Bowl again by then....
fuckme till Im old and gray(ooops..already am)

.......I MISS SOONER.......

Where for art thou..Soonerboy? I know things have been topsy turvey my son...but that isn't important..what IS important is the flocks, herds, and murders of fans who love and miss you..We miss Sooner's Bar and Grill, we miss your slanted outlook in our lives..we miss the sweet tales of Hannah Banana and the peeing puppy.Rocky asked about you this morning..said "hey, where's that asshole Sooner?"...I am sure you would have some terrific advice to give Babs on how to handle BB Boy.(that is if she would take it.hehe)I know I could use your input on how to deal with the slammed doors in my face while out stomping for Kinky..I know standing there on their porch screaming "yea..well, fuck you, you ignorant, Bible thumping, born again,evangelican Christian, Bush loving,Rebulican, peices of shit."... is not the way to go.Denise needs your thoughts on some store asking a woman not to breast feed on their property.. Nit wit needs an idea of what to post on the other side so he can get thrown out...I know you have a few ideas there...Leo's up to his ass in tree limbs, byg needs you to drop by and make him laugh and snort...we have a new crew of old crew arriving that need direction and shelter from the storm...
So what I'm trying to say here little buddy..is COME HOME...WE NEED YOU..WE MISS YOU...THINGS JUST AIN'T BEEN THE SAME SINCE YOU BEEN GONE...(there is a song in there someplace)....I am so lonely here ....come home .....come home...come home...your udder mudder..jackiesue

.......COWGIRLS ON THE FLY.......

I love my DAM NEWS.....this was in my DAM NEWS yesterday..
Cowgirl life is second nature...women ride into North Texas to camp and rustle up some fun..
This group of about 40 "sisters" packed their feather beds for a weekend stay at the refurbished and renamed Vineyards Campgroud on Grapevine Lake, where they will fly-fish among other activities.
The Sisters on the Fly are a national organization of independ, sassy women who drive vintage, Westen-themed trailers to campsites across the country to fish and enjoy other outdoor activities...."We don't talk about work or men. We talk about flat tires and fishing. The purpose is to cowgirl up. We can do everything and anything.".........Maurrie Susssman founder of Sisters on the Fly.
"I love the outdoors, and getting together with women was such a great experience," said Ms. Verri,38, who is traveling with her mother, Barbara Verri of Plano, in a 1960 Shasta travel trailer with a cowgirl painted on the side."With women, we really work well together and learn from each other. It's more of a sharing time. It kind of pushes you out of your comfort zone."..One truck pulled a pink trailer emblazoned with "Sisters on the Fly". A cowgirl dangled from the air conditioner.
The visit coincides with the opening of the campgrounds once known as Silver Lake, and Joe Moore's wife Peggy Moore has also goined the group. Joe is the assistant director of parks and recreation. The women who hail from Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Montana, California, Arkansas and Texas will also have access to a nature trail.
Group members kicked off their weekend Thursday at the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth.
The group's founder, Maurrie Sussman of Phoenix, said Sisters on the Fly has no criteria for membership and only one rule:"have fun."
Ms. Sussman and her sister Becky Clark hatched the idea for the group while they were celebrating catching an 8-lb brown trout while fly-fishing in Montana.
"We do not ask race, religion, political views or sexual orientation," said Ms. Sussman. The organization has nearly 500 members ranging in age from 28 to 83, Ms. Sussman said. They range from experiencd outdoor types to those who have gone their entire lives using"indoor facilities."
"Let's just say, they're learning to rough it."Ms. Sussman said, slightly tipping her wide-brimmed cowboy hat.
"It's a true sisterhood," said Ms. Verri, an Internet company manager in Dallas when she's not tinkering with her trailer.
"I wouldn't trade my cowgirl sisters for anything," she said. "We've helped each other through good times and high times."
The mural on her trailer is decorated with a favorite quote:"Well behaved women rarely make history."
"That should tell you everything," Ms. Verri said.
(Sisters on the Fly will be at the Vineyards Campgrouds at 1501 N. Dooley St. in Grapevine, Texas through Sunday. For more information on Sisters on the Fly, visit www.sistersonthefly.com.)
Well is that a kicker or what....I am so proud to be a woman with sisters like that on the move...and that quote about well behaved women is one of my favorite quotes and have posted about it before..I for one am going to check them out..
Wonder how much it would cost to buy a little trailer and slap it on the ass end of my little truck? Hell...I have new tires...but the gas....oh man..the gas...if the gas was cheaper..I would do it ...maybe...well...probably not...even though I love the idea and think it would be cool and fun...that would last about ...hm...3 days ....I think I could last 3 days..but anytime after that I would have to be put in restraints..because of my lack of people skills on a one on one basis...yup...3 days...maybe I could do it for a weekend a month...or a week end a year....yeah..that's the ticket...a weekend a year...all of us anti-social women of blogville could get together one weekend a year...whadda ya think?
fuckme till I wear spurs.

VANITY FAIR...and the articles great.








Ohhhhhh, I love Vanity Fair....this is the green issue..with Julia Roberts, George Clooney, Robert F. Kennedy, and Al Gore on the cover...some absolutely great articles on global warming. There is one article that I wish all of you could read.It is titled The Rape of Appalachia. If you read this and are not moved to tears I don't know my readers....it shows the most horrific pictures of the mountains of the Appalachian's that are now huge gaping holes in the ground..the tops are leveled...thanks to the coal mining industry..The E.P.A said that in 2003, 4000,000 acres,all rich and diverse temperate forest has been destroyed between 1985-2001. Which means that number is even greater now..Generations of family's have been uprooted because of the coal mines. I tried to think of the scariest parts to relate to you..but i would have to do the entire article and it is just too long...so I will only tell you about this earthen dam that is build behind the Marsh Fork Elementary, which has 217 students..The pit holds chemical slurry left over from washing the coal.from a helicopter it looks like a huge, open-topped hornet's nest, filled to the brim with black, opaque liguid.It holds 2.8 billion gallons of highly toxic liquid.They can and do rupture..in Oct.of 2000 one of them ruptured and sent 306 million gallons of sludge to the local waterwasys.. worse environmental diaster in the southeastern United States. in 1972 an impoundment breached sending 132 million gallons of sludge and drowning 125 people in the process.If the one behind the school breaks it is all over with, even if they had time to alert anyone..it would be too late..The kids are all sick at the school..They have had as few as 4 or 5 kids in a class, the rest out with diarrhea and vomiting...There is more...much more..but like I said..it is too lengthy..I don't know if you can google Vanity Fair and read the article or if you have to read the magazine. It is worth the $4.50 to get the article...it just made me crazy...fuckers...And who is allowing this to occur? You betcha...forest gump....On Jan. 20th, 2001, his very first day in office, Bush called in chief of Staff Andrew Card and told him to send directives to every executive department with authority over environmental issues ordering them to immediately put on hold more than a dozen new regulations left over from the Clinton Administration. These regulations included everything from one that lowered arsenic levels in drinking water to another thatsought to reduce releases of raw sewage. There were rules setting limits on logging, drilling and mining on public lands:increasing energy-efficiency standards;and banning snowmobiles in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. All were put on hold.

This was no surprise to most Texans. In a 2000 report by the Republicans for Environmental Protection(rep), Texas was the worse state in the nation for emissions of toxic and ozone-causing chemicals, as well as for the discharge of carcinogens harmful to the brains and central nervous systems of small children.Texas had the largest number of hazardous-waste incinerators and released more airborne industrial toxins than any other state. It was number 1 in the production of cancer causing benzene and vinyl chloride, in the release of toxic waste into underground wells,and in violations of clean-water discharge standards.During Bush's 6 years in Austin,Houston passed Los Angeles as the city with the worse air quality in America;by the time he left office, a third of Texas's rivers were so polluted that they were unfit for recreational use.The REP study could not find one single initiative by Bush during his time as governor that sought to improve either the state's air or its water.
While running for reelection, the REP Political Action Committee took the almost unprecedented step, for a G.O.P.group, of refusing to endorse the party's standard bearer. The organization said,"that over the last four years, the Bush administration has compiled a deliberately anti-environmental anti-conservation record that will result in lasting damage to public health and to America's natural heritage."
The president evidently felt otherwise. In his second presidential debate against Sen. John Kerry, he declared,"I'm a good steward of the land. The quality of the air is cleaner since I've been the president.Fewer water complaints since I 've been the president."
The National Resources Defense Council reported in Jan. 2005, "Over the course of the first term, this administration led the most thorough and destructive campaign against America's environmental safeguards in the past 40 years."
For all of you people that read this and continue to say well, it's not my problem, or what can I do?I say to you get off your ass and vote for someone else, someone in anything but the republican party. If you say you don't vote..well....to this I say 'MAY THE GODDESS BRING DOWN A POX ON YOU AND A CURSE ON YOUR FAMILY'..You stupid asssholes..
ok.... I don't know which is redder right now..my face or my ass...Shit like this makes me so crazy. It makes me understand the law saying there is a 7-day waiting period before you can buy a gun.
I was going to write about some other stuff..but this is long enough and I want to do a good job on the post about traveling gypsy cowgirls...
SO.....GO REGISTER TO VOTE...BE INFORMED..VOTE YOUR CONSCIOUS AND IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DO THIS FOR YOURSELF..DO IT FOR THE ONES THAT WILL COME AFTER YOU...DO IT FOR THE FUTURE OF THE WORLD....

I don't know how hot it is right now...nor do I want to...there is a nice breeze blowing and the yard is all shaded so it is not that bad in the house..have 2 fans going plus the ceiling fan...and I'm not sweating...but was out in town about an hour ago and was melting ...my a/c in the truck gets so cold so fast it makes my nose hurt..so I usually turn it on low and leave the windows down...My friend David needed me to go to his house while they put the cable in..he is moving into his Dad's house and it didn't have cable..went to the used shit store and they had their clothes on sale for half off..so got 3 tshirts( I love tshirts) for $1.50 and a pair of blue jeans that I will make shorts out of for $1.50...got a huge glass bowl that I will use for water dish for the birds...big enought for them to drink out of and bath in..which they are doing right now...damn..I forgot to get bird book yesterday...
I feel like hammered shit...I needed to clean my bedroom and rearrange furniture so I could use a/c...started about midnight or so (it was soooo cool..wind blowing in a great breeze) and took me till 7am...But I have to take it a little at a time as I just can't do it...moved desk, bed, chair, end table, coffee table(use it to put books on)and took the indian throw rug out to beat rocky's hair out of it..I would do a little and then email Babs and whine, do a little, email Babs and whine..my last email was just a series of fuck's and ouch...put clean sheets on ..showered..then tabu'd the bed and my butt...read for about 15 minutes and then I was out...slept till 11am...4 hours..didn't even get up to pee..which is a miracle in itself..oh i also swept, vacuumed, dusted, and moped..and still not done..will finish tonight when it is cooler..
I swear to the Goddess there is a conspiracy going on..was at used shit store and it is right next to wolf's bar and when I was getting in truck to leave..Anessa came running out and hugged me and talked to me for 15 minutes..what the fuck..I just saw her yesterday at the library..24 hours ago..and she acted like she hadn't seen me in a month...It looks like I am going to have to lock myself in the house for about 6 weeks till they forget about me again. anyone that really knows me knows I was eager to go ..kept saying.."oh really...?"..that means I don't give a shit..I have to go now...
going to go crank up the litttle bbquer...chicken breasts, baked potato and salad..but first I have to haul my ass out of this chair...and that may take two trips...hope it is cool where you are...

98 DEGREES.....APRIL 17TH.....

The first heat record was broken today....hottest April 17th since '93...Tomorrow will be another record breaking day..and the rest of the week..all record breaking heat...fuckity fuck fuck fuck..This is the second time I have posted this..the first time it got ate by a brown out...unlike Babs's...mine only lasted about 8 minutes..long enough to kill my post..
It was really funny too...(laugh uproariously here)
My friend Inky came by to show me his baby parrot."fugly"...it is huge...gold chest, teal blue green wings, and white around his eyes with black stripes...says one word.."OUT".. he hates his cage...they also have a cockatoo and they hate each other..the cockatoo is named willie hugh nelson...Went by to get Robert to take him to the library but he was short handed and couldn't leave..but he read one of the books I loaned him..in one day...but talked Inky and Anessa into going and got them library cards..made Inky check out a book..he kept whining .."but I don't read..really the last book I read was I am curious George....said I don't give a shit..your reading a book...got him a small one on the Cowboys and told him he had 2 weeks and before he could take it back I was going to quiz him...when I left he was wandering around in the entry hall saying 'but I don't read...I really don't read'...but he also knows better than to argue with me..hahahah..
BUT THE MAIN THING I WANTED TO POST ABOUT......
is how we are all so fucked up...yes, you know who you are..Babs posts about how she has a limit to how long she can be around people before she goes bat shit..and every one comments...Yup, me too, I also can't stand to be around people..I like to take lunches alone...etc..all of us...the only way we can deal with people is through blogging...kind of a hit and run affair...our blogs are the only way we can communicate and let others communicate with us..We can be happy, sad, goofy, mean spirited, racist, happy, informative, newsy..etc....and on our terms... people can comment and if we don't like what they say....we can delete their comments...outta sight ..outta mind...no confrontations, no arguments..just a one on one...our way...yup.....So what I really want to say to you out there, who I go to each day and read your posts, and to those of you that stop by here and visit in my twisted little world.....Im glad your fucked up...you're my kinda people....I like you...I really really like you.....but more important...I'm glad I'm not the only fucked up one here....

"HE HAS SERVED US WELL........"

This myth of Christ...Pope Leo X, 16th century...

My Easter thougth for the day...

Texas is in full bloom and will be for the next week or so and then she will turn from hot to hotter and then hotter than hell's basement.
I am watching my cardinal pair feed each other..it is so sweet..His coloring is so rich and lush while her's is less flashy and more muted..I wonder if he is brighter so he can look scarry to other birds and she is muted so she won't be noticed when she is in nest with the babies...I keep forgetting to get a bird book when I go to the library...will get one Monday..when I was being escorted to the truck by Robert friday I told him I would come and get him on his lunch hour and take him to the library and show him what he has been missing..can't believe as much as he reads he hasn't been to the library..I will let you know how that turns out..
My lawn isn't mowed yet..forgot to get spark plug..and keep trying to crank it but it kills my back..think I may have to call David O to come over and start it for me..my back is not strong enough to withstand the constant tugging it needs to start up...don't even feel guilty about my lawn being the only one around that still hasn't been mowed...maybe I should get a goat.It is cooling off a little and want to see what our high was..it was over 90 yesterday..as long as it stays 90 or below I won't run the ac..My house and yard is shaded by the pecan tree and another tree (I don't know what it is) and with the breeze...I can get away with just having a window fan going..last night it was wonderful..sat out on the porch and enjoyed the breeze..it was almost tropical...I took my keroscene lamp out on porch and read by the lamp..was going to turn porch light on but it draws so many bugs..and the fuel in lamp is that bug repelent stuff and it is kinda cool to read by lamplight..I am used to doing that in West when the electricity goes out so much..
I am watching pbs "Frontier House"...I watched it the first time around, but is really interesting to watch..I think pbs gets the most dysfunctional family's to do these shows...sometime this month they are having the Texas Ranch house...can't wait..I love pbs..Walking the Bible is going to be on tonight..but will watch West Wing ...I am really going to miss that show..besides Boston Legal they have the best writing tv ..Which reminds me..remember my post about mary hartman ? and my other favorite tv shows?..well, scroll down and check out the pictures that sooner put in...especially the one for Yellow Rose...I forgot Sybil Shepard was in that too....Sooner picks the best pictures to go with my posts..when I first started posting here I went back to my first post and looked at all the pictures he had put with them and am so amazed..he is so smart and funny and just knows which picture to apply with my posts...only once did he put in something I didn't like when he included a picture of the Eagles helment on my rave about how I hated them...said please...no pictues of them...
This maybe the most boring post I have ever done...Hell even I am bored...but ..ain't shit happening...I promise to do better tomorrow...

AHHHH GEEZ...THEY FOUND ME

Didn't go to sleep today till 7am so I'm snoozing away and knockity knock...at the door..rats...stagger out of bed looking like a demented punk rocker(I sleep on my sides so my hair gets pushed into a mohawk...)and there are Inky and Charlie Brown..forgot to mention charlie yesterday as wasn't sure he was going to make it to West.. he is another one of the bunch of drunks that hung out at The Capital.....He is doing so well, great job that he loves, new wife and new puppy...company truck, phone and all the whistles and bells..he works in 'da awl bidness'..said that his boss makes soo much money that it is spooky ..that at $50 a barrel they are rolling in money and at $60 going on $70 they are rolling in money and burning it...fuck..
I swear I can't get around any of those people I used to hang with without a "remember the time jackie........"....and Charlie had to bring up the time He and I and Ricky Maler went to Whitney street dance in my jeep..and I jumped out of the jeep and bitch slapped some girl for talking shit to my friends...what a dufus...I barely remember that...I think there should be a statue of limitations to retelling drunk stories about me...hey, I'm a grandma here...but the nice thing was, they where whining about being in their mid 40's and I said..'hell, I'll be 63 in Nov..'..they actually gasped...'no way'...your the same age as we are...'no...I'm 20 years older than you guys..'...I had to actually show my drivers liscense as they thought I was not telling the truth...made my day..both of them have more gray hair than I do..mwmahahahahhahah....the Goddess rules...
I am going to go see if I can crank up the lawn mower..if not I will go get a new spark plug..see if that's the problem...it is 4-15..and it is 90+ degrees out side..but nice and breezy so it actually is a beautiful day...also...scroll down...sooner added some more pictures to my blog..he is so great..each picture is just perfect for each post...
ps...my right foot swelled up so much from yesterday that when I looked down at my toes all I could think was:"my toes look like snausages"....tanks Babs....

SMALL TOWN LIVING

I finally hauled my fat ass to the laundry mat...happy happy, joy joy as Babs would say...Which is her version of my version of fucity fuck fuck fuck..But what a day I had...I did my laundry and decided to stop by the $store and get some sympathy cards for the family of Doc...Where Robert the manager followed me all over the store..chatting me up..asking me what books I liked to read, did I like hard back or paper backs....I know it has been a long time since anyone has pursued me(when I only had one ass)..but this guy is seriously making me nervous...he acts like we are the last two people on earth and we need to get busy...I have always liked Robert, he is sweet, funny, smart, hard worker and dresses nice..as apposed to me who is sarcastic,obstinate, stubborn,and likes to dress in shorts, t-shirts and my converse tennie shoes. regardles..he is flirting with me...which at my age is kinda cute..damn..I'm almost 63...considering I haven't had sex since I had my female organs removed....I am like a 1943 Chevy with a new motor...anyhow..the best news is I ran into people today that I haven't seen in years and years and years...since I drank...I ran into Anessa who is the wife of Inky(who is the youngest son of my best friend, Agnes who died 20 something years ago). She was in the $1 store and Inky was at Wolf's down the street..5 stores down from $1 store..so I went to Wolf's to see Inky...First time I had been in a bar in about 8-9 years...the smell is exactly the same..stale beer, cigerettes, sweat,and that mysterious odor that is also found in cheap motel rooms...I almost gagged..but in a way it was so familiar it was like coming home...So I sat at the bar and had a coke...no damn Dr. Pepper...I asked the girl behind the bar, what kind of joint are you running with no Dr. Pepper? She looked at me like I ate rats for a living...I hadn't even popped the top on my coke when some one came in snapped my bra and said Wakko Wakko...You will all have to pretend here like you know what I am talking about..years ago I was co-captain and score keeper for the softball team at the Capital(the bar where we all hung out) and to encourage everyone to do better I would wiggle my titties at them at go wakko wakko...You also must remember at the time I was weighing in at about 120 and my tits didn't reach my knee caps then..so it was a big deal and everyone enjoyed it...except for my tits..more home runs were hit to the sounds of a stadium full of drunks yelling 'wakko wakko'....and the one that enjoyed it the most was Termite...(West...the home of the knicknames)and sure enough it was Termite...who informed me that the latest gossip about me was that I had gotten remarried...I laughed so hard I almost fell off the barstool...Told him, are you fucking kidding me???? he said no..really...He over heard it at the bar a few weeks ago...I said what he should have done was to hock all he owned and bet the guy that I didn't..and he could have retired from Nemecek's Meat Market...So now I'm bullshitting with Inky, Anessa and Termite, when Sara comes in...Sara is the wife and mother of the snake handlers... she is addicted to those bar slots..so now it's like 20 years ago and we're all catching up with who did what, who has kids, who has grandkids, etc...was kinda cool...but I had a truck load of clean clothes and needed to go get me some Dr. Pepper..so I said my goodbyes and headed to Community Grocery...where I run into kinfolk(by marriage)...Ricky and Sara Maler...their oldest son is named after my oldest son David.. I am also his god mother..who is now a father and made Ricky and Sara grandparents..I haven't seen them in almost 10 years..They are all settled down too..They have a 21 year old daughter who is going to start taking radiation for tongue and throat cancer..smoked for 6 years..they said they had never seen cancer like that in someone so young..they had to remove part of her tongue and lymp nodes in her throat..that is scarry..and ole Ricky (we used to raise hell together) is now a church going non drinker ..get this, he goes to a church called the 'Last Cowboy Roundup Church of God'......I had to bite my lip to keep from laughing out loud..hey...what ever works..The Church and the Pastor has been right there for them thru this cancer scare with Michelle..so it is good that they have that support.
It was just really great seeing all these people again..I live within walking distance of most of them..but the ones that still drink and party I am not apt to run into...and the ones that quit like I did..stay home and keep out of trouble..So it is easy to live in a town this small and not run into each other.And as much as I enjoyed seeing them I am not inclined to reopen the relationships...just too fucking old to sit around and rehash our drunken party days..because as sure as the Goddess made little nutsack tangelos...someone always has a 'jackie' story..and while they 'may' have been funny at the time...sitting there at 62 being reminded of the time I smacked some guy with palm of my hand on his forehead and said 'don't fuck with me asshole...I have papers to prove I'm crazy'....well, it is a little silly...but I had a great day....life is good...
PS...have to tell you my favorite Agnes story...she was tending bar at the Capital and I walked in as she was slamming the phone down...she said:"mother fucker...I don't mind when people shit on me..but it really pisses me off when they use my hair to wipe their ass.."..laughed till I cried..I really miss her..

I'M OK, AND YOU'RE OK, IF THE CHECK'S OK.

I am such a simple soul...It takes so little to make me happy..thank the Goddess as there isn't much for me to be happy about. Today is the day the books come from the Waco library..if there is a book I want and not a big enough deal for Henrietta to buy it for the library, we can get Waco to send them. Today I hit pay dirt..
1)Dies The Fire by S.M. Stirling..finding out that I am reading the seris out of order...oh well, my life is out of order so I can handle it...this is the sci/fi/fantasy book part 2 I think...So far I am reading them backwards...kind of like Star Wars.
2) Shampoo Planet by Douglas Coupland
3)Life After God by same ^
4)Microserfs by same^
5)Polaroids from the Dead same^
6)Girlfriend In a Coma by the same^
7)Miss Wyoming by the same^
I will find someone I like and then read everything he wrote..which is how I found and fell in love with James Lee Burke.At the West Library I found The Politically Correct Guide to American History..by Edward P. Moser....which is pretty funny so far....
Thom, the son is going through his second childhood...he just bought a Harley Davidson motorcycle...He needs this toy like he needs a tennage girlfriend...I am not the only one that thinks that..Jenny his 19 year old daughter asked him why he didn't find a young girl to fool around with, as it would have been a lot cheaper and safer...I may have mentioned this before as I am getting worse and worse about remembering shit..
For reasons left unspoken( I can't just open up here like some of you can)I have been feeling a little low....I am sure you all are thinking "how can that be...the queen of snappy and funny can't be down....yes, boys and girls...I can..I have been a lot of times..but just suck it up and go on with my day...My way of dealing with feeling depressed is too push it aside and make someone laugh...it's not a cure, but it work's for me...But as you know...some of the stuff I say that I think is funny is not necessarily funny to my family...Thom is still hard pressed to find the humor in refering to his wife as imacuntthedaughterinlaw...and after all this time Maryjo decided that she doesn't like me making jokes about shooting her father..after 31 years...I have done what ever it takes to keep me from falling into that deep pit of pain...I have guilt, no matter that I was saving mine, hers and my sons lives at the time...I did not shoot a nice guy...I shot a man who was going to kill us all....I still have nightmares...but what has kept me from going insane was my twisted sick sense of humor..I can find a way to make fun of anything...and I have and I do.. and I will continue to do so....telling people my husband died of lead poison is one way...saying Im a self-made widow is another...Maryjo has her way of dealing with her life..I have mine...We both chose booze for a long time...that worked.but not for long, for the day to day get up and continue living, being crazy has kept me from going insane..and laughing about it works for me....
So out of three kids ages 42, 40, 33 ....none of them are very happy with me...Mojo is not speaking to me...David and I haven't spoke in almost 5 years nor have I spoke or seen his daughters....that is another long messy story...one of which I am actually not the bad guy...I will take blame for Thom and Mojo being mad, pissed, hurt what ever...but David..well, that one is on his head..Thom last Christmas had me over but I think now it was just to make the girls happy...he doesn't call and was in West for Doc's funeral and didn't call or come by...so I present my ass to be kissed..
the reason I have even brought this up is my friend Shady Lane sort of got caught up in the me and MOJO war and being a loyal yankee friend, she jumped right into Maryjo with both cowgirl boots..upsetting MOJO so much she threatened to fly to Austin and kick her skinny yankee ass...which gave us alot to laugh about (shady and me)I can't tell you how good it felt to have her in my corner...reassuring me I was not a bad mother(she has been around since MO was 3),
(she refers to them as the Denney schmucks)that my kids need to take responsiblity for their own actions and quit blaming me for everything that ever happend to them...I get blamed for the bad stuff but no one says hey Mom, thanks for helping me with my home work, stickng up for me when the bully terrorized me and you kicked his dad's ass..thanks for teaching me to play ball, shoot pool, make me read books when you could have stuck us in front of the tv..nope nary a word about that..Oh,my dears...that almost sounds like I am feeling sorry for myself and we can't have that...fuck the little bastids..and feed them porriage....
Ok, enough...will end this on a funny note..saw an article in the DAM NEWS and it was about a litte setto between the girlfriends of NASCAR divers Greg Biffle and Kurt Busch...Biffle's girlfriend got a 'reprimand from NASCAR officials after she went up in the stand and had a heated exchange with Kurt's girl...This was after the the two drivers wrecked at Texas Motor Speedway.Nicole Lunders marched right down pit road and climbed half-way up Busch's box(insert joke here) and had a few heated words with Eva Bryan.. Gotta love them red neck women....screw that stand by your man shit..stand up for him and kick a little ass when you can....
ahhh, life is good....

ANOTHER WEEK IN WEST, TEXAS



......I love Wed.'s it's West News Day......All West citizens eagerly await the paper....I went to Community Grocery to get my paper and it wasen't there yet...panic....so went to the West News office and bought it hot right off the press....sooo, what's up in West...??
This article really pissed me off...The West Parents, Teachers Organization(PTO), formerly PTA, has scheduled an important meeting for 7pm on April 17th in the West High School Lecture Hall to discuss its future.
Group officials are searching for people willing to take on leadersip rolls in the organization and have reported that if "no one steps up, we will probably disband."
damn...no pto? what the fuck? I know that there are lots of parents that are involved in their kids life, enroll them in sports, take them to library, etc. but what is the deal on not attending pto meetings and getting involved with the teachers and school ....? I have to admit I am one to talk..when my kids were in school I would rather have my ovaries removed with a claw hammer than attend a pta meeting...I even joked that I might be inclinded to attend if they server beer instead of cookies and kool-aid....except I was serious...
There's an article on why we need to crack down on illegal aliens..."A 1996 Jeep Cherokee struck a legally parked vehicle and then a utility pole in the 500 block of N. Marable approximately 6:30pm Sunday. The utility pole broke at the base causing a power outage in a few homes in the immediate area. Wintesses observed a Hispanic male fleeing from the accident on foot. " Well, guess what? He was drunk, had no drivers liscense, no insurance and was an illegal alien from Mexico..He is out on bond as he has a job and his boss bailed him out...Said, he was a good worker and had a family to take care of and couldn't make any money in jail...
FUCKME!!
When Maryruth used to rent the little house in back of her house and right next door to me I was constantly calling the police because of the noise, the trucks blocking the alley..drunks wandering into the yard thinking my house was the house next door...At first it worked..then they realized that all that would happen is they would get a $10 ticket...and they all worked...I will say that..each and every one of the 7-8 guys living in that one tiny bedroom house had a job...but I was getting sick and tired of the hassle of drunks, music, fights and what ever, going on till 4am each morning...So finally I talked to the Chief of Police and he sent out his best cop.."cindy"...she didn't mess around like the other cops did...handing out $10 tickets...she said she would have each and every single one of the trucks hauled away by Polanskys..and taken to Waco...and to get them back they would have to pay the towing fee of $75...and show proof of insurance, proof of ownership and drivers liscense. ....Well, that was the last of that...they moved the next weekend and Maryruth started using the little house for storage.
back to the news.
Easter related evens were held this past weekend..St. Mary's Church of Assumption CCE students presented their live annual Stations of the Cross in the parking lot surrounding the church..over 1,000 people observed the event.Kindergarten and pre-k students participated in an Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by West Rest Haven(old farts home) on the grounds outside. My x-daughter-in-law Kathy is the Activity Director and did most of the work...she is really good at that stuff...
West Fraternal Auditorium has scheduled Spring Fest on April 30th.Doors open at 9am and Polka Mass with Father Walter Matus is planned for 10am..the Vrazels Polka band will start playing at 1pm.$8 a head...Lunch will be served..a roast beef plate with all the trimmings for $5 a plate. Arts and crafts exhibitors are invited to participate.
Now this is typical West...in two different letters to the editor we have 2 extremes.
One letter is from the Secretary/Treasurer of the Sons of the Rebublic of Texas. He writes to remind us that April 21st is the day Texans celebrate the day that Texas won its freedom from Mexico in the battle of San Jacinto. He goes on to say that we have had many visitors who don't know of our great history. Some of you may not be aware that before we joined the United States we were a Nation which existed till Dec. 29th, 1845. Basically he is reminding us that we were once under control of Mexico and we won our freedom from them..and to celebrate by flying our Texas flag on April 21st.. I will be flying mine....
the next letter is from Plano, Texas and is written by Jake Khalilian . I will print all of it.
FOR THOSE WHO ARE PROUD TO BE A PERSIAN
I am not a terrorist or a wife beater. I don't live in a tent in a desert and camesl are not our way of transportation, and I speak Farsi, not Arabic. Iran is pronounced "eeraun," not "I-Ran."Iran and Iraq are two different countries, the Middle EAst is a region and Not a continent. Belly dancers are Not strippers; belly dancing is an Arabic dance, it never came from Iran. Each time you play a game of chess to impove your intellect, keep in mind tht it was Persians who gave you your game.
Iranian women are just as outspoken(if not more) and liberal as the European women, and what is "soccer?" We also call it Football like everyone in the world (except Americans). Iran is the first country on earth to have a lion(male) and a sun(female) for its symbol; and to use the colors re, white and green for a flag. Iran is a beautiful country run by the wrong people, but still the best part of theMiddle East.
Let me introduce myself: I'm a Persian.My motherland is Iran, and I am a proud American citizen......sales@jaycoinc.co
What the hell is he doing sending his letter to the West News.....there is no, none, zip, nada Irani's here...There are in Waco...I used to work for one..( he was an ashole).

They are having Karaoke night at Strickly and the 4th annual Bass Tournament..on the 29th and will have a fish fry after the award show...Wayward Sons are playing at Sadowland and will be selling longnecks for $1.(16 years or so ago I would have liked that...loved Lone Star Longnecks)
You can get a 3-bed/1bath ....1,169 sq. feet. for $86,250...2-bd/3bath brick 2 story ..2,768 sq. feet for $264,900.
