WEST,TEXAS NEWS

I haven't done a West,Texas news update in a while..was going to do the letters to Santa but then I forgot...But you due for some local news...actually there isn't much going on but we did collect enough toys to give toys to 250 kids.That's 68 families and over 1,500 toys..Last year we collected enough toys for 50 families and 150 kids..so we get better each year..
Our new VFW Club is open and running...they had the opening in November and it is over by the Westfest Parking area so I see it every time I drive to town...Looks like a cracker box in the middle of a tar patch...But eventually they will plant grass and flowers..or at least I hope so..Our new assisted living center is up and running too..I think it has 15 apts..they are pretty pricy, but they are very very nice..

The boy Trojans place 4Th at the Sherman basketball tourney, but the girls won first and move into the play offs...A West horse won first place at the Los Alamitos Race Course..Leading Spirit, a 4-year old bay gelding owned by Barry Thompson captured first place in the $50,000 First Down Dash Handicap G3.What ever the fuck that is...


West also received over 47 inches of rain during the 2007 year..Which is almost the same amount we received the last 2 years all together..It started out very very wet and then ended up dry..But still had record amounts..No baby's were born this past week..dang..But we had 3 croak on us...Two of them were 90 years old and one was 72...I don't mind when some one dies and their in their 90's..but when some one croaks and is in their early 60's..it makes me antsy..
Don the neighbor that lived behind me died in November..I was talking to his wife and she said he was only 64(he looked 84) and I said that it made me nervous as he was the same age as me...she said she thought I was in my early 50's..Need to put her in my will...

Lots of jobs in ole West, as Jupe Mills is looking for a receptionist/secretary..full time,401K,paid vacations, holidays,and insurance is available..The Village Bakery is looking for help, plus they are still looking for a buyer..anyone want to buy a Bakery?
West Chamber of Commerce is looking for an Administrative Assistant part-time.Plus the West News is looking for a receptionist/bookkeeper.
If you decide to move to West like Babs did you could buy a house pretty cheap..A 2-story home on over sized, corner lot with 6-7 bedrooms, 3 bath,study with fireplace, large, formal dining room, hardwood floors,upstairs balcony and character in every room has been reduced to $100,000.How about a 3-bedroom,2-bath with office,11 foot ceilings, large backyard,new kitchen,central heat and air for $88,000.Or if your looking for a little land with that house, there is a 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath brick home on 1.97 acres,3-car garage, converted patio, tile and wood flooring, walk-in closets,and built in appliances for only $234,000.
This was a slow week for West as most everyone is still hung over from New Years.When I went to pick up Patsy and Andy from Mynar's Bar New Years night there were cops all over the place..But it was an early night for them because the bars close at midnight during the week so when the new year came in..most people were being escorted out the door and into their cars...I saw the Bratprinces momma and daddy. Edda doesn't drink either and we were thinking about just wandering up and down the streets of West hoping we could be decoys for the cops so the real drunks could make their get away...Like to see the looks on their face when they breathalyzed the 2 of us..Me with no alcohol for 17 years and Edda with no alcohol for 41 years..
Of course Johnny sorta made up for it..and Patsy and Andy were drunker than Cooter Brown.Wonder just who the hell ole Cooter Brown was?...
Well, that's all the news to print...I am disappointed as Bold Springs Baptist Church isn't selling hamburgers this week or next week..I'm jonesing for a Bold Springs Baptist Church hamburger...I'm telling ya..they are nummy delicious..the most perfect hamburger..

fuckme with onions...

Now that I don't drink anymore either, we could form a Sober Super Hero team or something.

No tights though, unless they're covered with something else above the knee.

bratprince:I could be a superhero...
Wonderwoman...I have a cap that has a big pink S on it for super girl...but I'm a little long in the tooth for 'girl' anything..
since you live her in west, by Goddess, Texas with me..you can attest to the coolness of our little town...and that it really is 1957 here..

Deliciously so!

Speaking of delicious, I would sell my soul for a Bolds Spring Baptist Church Burger.

I'll even call them and beg.

I think I'm low on iron or something, because I have the urge to bite people's necks off, and rub red-meat on my face.

1957?!
uhhhhh JackieSue.... I think in 1957 they were still burning people like me at the stake.
I may need to rethink coming to visit...

Must get Leave it to Beaver and Father Knows Best reruns OUT of MY head NOW!!!!

I don't know it sounds like you have taken a position with the Chamber of Commerce. 1957 was pretty dull for me. I spent most of it in dirty diapers with a bottle shover in my mouth.
The weather has got to be better than here though. We got a few inches of snow Tuesday night and Wednesday night it got down to about 12 degrees.
Next Tuesday's high is supposed to be in the low 60's go figure.

rocky:maybe you need to down size your life...settle back into the slow life of west,texas..where the most stress you will encounter is having to wait for the train to go through town so you can go to the bank, grocery store or get a kolache..
kalibitch:nah, here in west, they all have a bad case of giveafuck...they really don't giveafuck...if they did..they would have run me out of town years ago
nitwit:it got down to 21 degrees last night and will be a high of 40's today, but by this weekend it will be in the 70's and raining...sigh*...1957 isn't bad here..west is a texas version of mayberry..our barbers name isn't floyd,it's Sam and he still has a elvis presley haircut with side burns...

Cop decoys for drunks. I think you have an idea that could be franchised all over the world. I'd invest in that.

McRaven said...

If I buy the bakery you would have to be my partner...we could make some funny cakes...

yellowdog granny said...

jan:i thought it was a good idea too...drive out of the parking lot at closing time..and then drive irratic for a few miles and then make him breathilize me and take a lot of time..mean while every one else has staggered home..
mcraven:yeah, we could bake cakes with penis's on them...or tits...or both for our friends who can't make up their minds..huh huh..
