WEST, TEXAS NEWS UPDATE

Ok, lets see...first of all Anessa is still in the hospital with parts of her foot removed from the poisonous brown recluse spider bite..she is going to have to have reconstructive surgery as they really took out a big hunk of her foot..plus she's a diabetic too, so she's already susceptible to foot problems...I send her a get well card that was for a kid..said: 'for a special kid...get well'...she thought that was pretty humorous, which prompted Inky to say he had never received a Christmas card that said Merry fucking Christmas before until he got one from me.
One year I wrote bah fucking humbug...and one year it was Merry Christmas and all that other happy bullshit..
Bab's foot is still all infected and she isn't doing well either...still running a fever, foot is swollen the size of a grapefruit...red and pusie, pussy, pussie, however you spell it it still looks like her foot looks like a red pussy...which is not what I mean..it's got puss coming out of it..jeez...have got to learn how to spell...
Last night at 2 minutes till 8 some yoyo comes waltzing in and starts to browse..I'm working with Tom and thinking oh fuck, we're going to be here all night long..so at 2 seconds to 8 I said, if you don't bring your stuff to the counter by 8pm I'm throwing your butt out of here...Lucky for me the customer AND my boss laughed..Tom was telling the story to everyone who would listen today...Plus he and Inky were teasing me all fucking day long about not staying behind the counter by the register and the fact that I can't hear a fucking thing..Supposedly I'm not supposed to go past the 2nd pole and I'm usually all over the place..they said they were going to get me a shock collar like they get for barking dogs...if I go past the second pole I get zapped...I kept saying 'What?'.....Tom said he was going to get me one of those trumpets like they used 100 years ago...I said What?......Now he and Inky will move their lips like they are talking and not say anything..just to fuck with me..I'd look at them and go what?...and they would just laugh and laugh...assholes...
What else..?...I dropped another 6 lbs..hauled another pair of jeans out of the back of the closet that I haven't worn since Carter was president...and they fucking fit...I'm so happy...pretty soon I'll just be tits and elbows..
Oh, and I watched American Gangster last night...far fucking out....I was blown away by the acting of those two...Denzil had the meatier role, but think Crowe really nailed his ....that dejected shuffle he did when he walked out of the court house when he gave up his son...wow...really great...
now for the local news...
West Fraternal is having their 31st anniversary dinner with fried chicken and sausage...everything they make they also have sausage with it..it could be a cake sale and they would have a plate of sausage on the side..
Missy Sulak who is on the Library board and various other committees is running for West ISD board of Trustees...Ayden Dulock turned 2 years old..Ayden is my x-daughter-in-law's, brother Anthony's, daughter Lynsey's son...got that?...Kinfolk kinfolk...every one's kinfolk..Did I tell you that Willie Nelson has a store in Abbott?...It's his home town and he visits a lot more than you would think he would...It's called Willie's Abbott Cash Grocery...with a full line of grocery products and a new shipment of Willie Nelson T-Shirts, caps, etc.
In other news Czechs from throughout the state gathered in West last Saturday for the Czech Heritage Society of Texas Spring Meeting at the Lone Star Hall. Miss McLennan-Hill Czech-Slovak Queen Ashley Sulak was crowned the new Miss Texas Czech-Slovak Queen and the little Czech Sister is Kaylin Gerik. All those costumes they are wearing are home made by either their mother, aunt, grandmother or some other relative..pretty neat..
Oh Oh ....remember my friends T.J. and Merle the gay couple that run Strickly Country(yes that is how they spell it..the guy owned the bar thought that was how you spelt strictly...he used to be our Chief of Police....really..owned the bar and was chief of police at the same time...I swear this is true..), anyhow...Merle and T.J. had sold the bar and retired....they were happy doing what ever people do when they retire..the waitress's sugar daddy bought it for her...but they forgot one thing...no one liked her..so every one quit coming to the bar..so they sold it to this other guy...who they found out had a felony and couldn't own a bar..so ......Merle and T.J. have the bar back...they spent a bunch of money remodeling and fixing it up and last Sunday they had the grand opening..I was going to go(they were having a free fish fry) but had to go into work 2 hours early so blew it off...So Strickly Country is back in business with their gay owners...I love my town..where else in Texas could 2 gay guys run a bar(a very very popular bar) and not have anyone give a shit..
The paper this week had 2 sections...2 whole entire sections...one was all sports...the Trojan boys beat Whitney 13-2 and advanced to the playoffs...and the Lady Trojans(I can hear you giggling nitwit) are undefeated in district and are going to the playoffs..They beat Glen Rose 21-2(yes you read that right..21 to fucking 2...) they are 10-0 in district..we won the title..we rock...It's still up in the air who they will play and where..We're all a twitter over our Trojans...Plus West summer league opening day was past Saturday..We have 4 fields...and they are like professional fields..I'll have to take some pictures...we have huge lights and everything..baseball is king in West...This kid is a T-ball player...
We have a new commercial listing too...Ray's Electric is being sold..Ray died and the kids tried to keep it going but they all have pretty bush lives so when the wife died(Inky's Aunt and Uncle) the family decided to sell..So Ray's Electrical and Plumbing, turnkey business including building, equipment, inventory and all fixtures. This also includes 2 rental units for $125,000...not a bad deal...
Houses for sale are at a premium..There are for sale signs up all over town..even some of the new fancy brick homes that are less than 5 years old...one for sale has a pool...
We had 6 deaths and no births...This time last year for every 4-6 deaths there were 1-2 births...not this year...
So..that's pretty much all the news that's fit to print...
Oh wait..our local boy that was in Iraq is home and had no sooner got home than he broke his hand...His mom doesn't care...she's just happy he's home...
Y'all need to come to West, Texas....it's 1957 here...and the food's great...

What's with the feet and hands down there? Speak up.

Big Tex said...

Yikes, remind me never to get bitten by a brown recluse spider. Bad things happen in three's so be sure to watch your hands and feet down there.

Nit Wit said...

Lady Trojans Te He.
No births again? Sounds like someone is using another type of Trojan.
Now I know why you keep trying to get everyone to move to West. If this keeps up you and Babs will have to run Westfest all by yourselves.
Spiders and cats are really running amuck in West now. Gotta watch your feet if your diabetic. One reason I was surprised to learn is that you learn sensitivity in them so you don't feel as much pain as you should.
There are lots of empty houses springing up everywhere now and not too many people buying.
The Gump sure has fixed it for everybody and it took him less than eight years.

Kalibitch said...

~sigh~ what a nice visit i just had in West, Texas. Thanks for that JS.

McRaven said...

Did you get Willie yet? I had a tracker put on the tube and they said it was delivered yesterday morning at 8:01am. Maybe you could catch the real Willie and have him autograph it!

Spider bites,
Cat bites,
sounds like they need some pest control in West Texas.

I hope the two people who got bit heal quickly.

I just last night was reading about the recluse and after what I read I didn't want to go to bed. I made Bruce check my shoes before I put them on this morning.

buddha_girl said...

What the fuck happened to Babs? She got bitten as well?

Spiders give me the heebie jeebies. HATE THEM. And I don't want anyone giving me a fucking speech about how they help weed out the insect population. I can buy a can of fucking Raid if I want to do away with moths, flies, whatever. Cripes.

I want to go to Strickly Country this summer!! Pretty please? You and I can be the sober ones and can catcall and poke fun at everyone else!

billy pilgrim said...

you keep dropping the pounds.

would it be impolite to ask what your before and after weights are?

jan said...

I'm hoping some Indy film maker will make a documentary about West. It would star some anorexic sex object who says "fuck" a lot.

yellowdog granny said...

allan:what?
bigtex:well, she's home from the hospital, and babs foot still is the size of a basketball...scary..
ntwit:i always worry about something happening to my feet..they are numb all the time, and not sure if it's from the pinched nerve or the diabetes....or both..yeah,i noticed there are a ton of 'hispanic' babies being born, but they very rarely put it in the paper...
so there are babies being born...just not czech.
kali:i love my little town...
mcraven:willie showed up today..so excited and love them both...when i get them framed i will take pictures so everyone can see them...i love them...a bunch...the brown recluse is a nasty bastid..
rox:1957 is a great year for your town to be bogged down in...ha
buddha:yup she got bit all 4 fangs by the neighbors cat..I promise to take you to strickly country and to jack and diane's, to the pizza house and to wolfs..if you're lucky i will take you to the pool hall which is the 'hispanic' bar..hahah
bp:when i started out i was over 245, i actually had quit weighting, so i may have weighted more..now im at 195...first time i have been below 208 since 94..
jan:it would make a great documentary..they would have to use a bleep a lot..ha

sageweb said...

Well other then the spider foot bites and Babs foot and the soldier's hand it sounds like a great place...plus a gay owned bar. WIsh free fish...I am all over that.

old enough to moan said...

Well done on the weight loss, when you manage to get into a diaper you have probably lost enough!

If it was 1957 here I would be minus two!

I am glad the spiders in the UK just sit down beside you.

unokhan said...

just read where you refused to bow to the korean flag-- that knox me out. not coz it was korean particularly, just that u refused to bow to a damn flag.

you rock.

yellowdog granny said...

sage:it really is a great place..i wouldn't live any where else...unless someone gave me a paid home right on the ocean....nah....
oetm:the spiders here sit down beside ya, and then bite ya...actually i think the oklahoma brown recluse is more poisonious than the texas version...i was 14 in 1957....not a happy year for me..but it is now..
unokhan:just didn't see much sense in it..plus when you bow, your head goes down and someone could bip you ...

tina said...

You are the epitomy of Texas kindness and hospitality. I love it. Those spiders are horrible though - sorry to hear about Bab's cat bite too. Man, those critters are dangerous.
