and they beat the point spread too. Hot damn..
Did I mention the cheering youngster is Robert(Buddha_Boy) my sweet baboo?...His mom is a die hard Giants fan and let me tell you..she's not thrilled to see her son cheering the Cowboys..but she loves me so she does it for me. She even sent me new photos of him to replace the ones that I had been using the past year ...The ones from last year were just pictures of him that I used for wins and losses...These were especially posed photos for Aunt Grandma Jackie....he's so damn cute..
Ok..the Cowboys won another game and I'm happy. They played like shit the first half but like I have always said..they are a second half team. Except for last week and they just sucked the entire game ....I swear these fuckers are going to drive me to dive head first into a bottle of Lone Star yet.
I got to see Jenna Jo-Ann today...She looks so much like David..the first thing when I saw her asleep all stretched out on her back stretching and yawning was 'she looks like her Grandpa, passed out on the floor..' I have never seen so much baby stuff in my life..It looks like Toys R Us in that bedroom..They won't have to buy a new outfit till she's 3 years old if then. There wasn't a bare spot on the bed, crib, play pen or floor ...every thing was covered with clothes, toys and blankets.
She has 3 different kinds of carry-alls, car seats. swings, and all kinds of baby totes. Unbelievable.
Nighty night all, hoping to get some Annie free sleep tonight. I kicked a pillow at end of bed last night and said 'oops, sorry Annie'...then realized it wasn't her and started to cry. This sucks.

By Eric Aasen Dallas Morning News.
On Labor Day, the Michigan State Fair wrapped up for the year, and forever. blame the end of the 160-year-old tradition on state budget cuts during the recession.

Other fairs are seeing their budgets dry up as governments spend precious dollars elsewhere. Is this the beginning of the end for state fairs?
With this years State Fair of Texas opening Friday(yesterday) Big Tex and company are far from calling it quits, fair officials say.
The country's longest and largest fair makes money, generating at least $5 million in profits each year based on about $70 million in revenues, fair officials say.
Unlike several other state fairs, the State Fair of Texas doesn't receive government funds.

But for the fair to continue making money on its own, officials have to keep things fresh and attact the crowds.
That means folding new exhibits, foods and rides into the mix of corny dogs and other fair standards.
"We've tried to keep the product relevant by constantly changing the product," said Errol McKoy, fair president. "We preach innovation."

The fair pushed for improvements at the Cotton Bowl, which helped keep the annual football clash between the University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma held during the fair. In 2011, the fair plans to launch a 500-foot high tower reminiscent of Seattle's Space Needle. The fair also hopes to open Summer Place Park, an amusement park, in 2012.
But those plans cost money. The fair took out a $20 million loan for its part of the stadium expansion. The tall tower costs $11 million, while Summer Place could cost up to $20 million.
For now, the fair is using its profits to pay for those projects. So, the pressure's on to keep the money rolling in.
"We need to have a good fair," McKoy said. "We need to be netting as much as possible.
Last year, the fair earned more than $29 million in concessions, admissions and various rental fees, about $900,000 less than in 2007,financial statements show. McKoy attributes the dip to the weather.(me:this year the weather is a lot cooler..should help)
But fair admission and merchandise revenue had grown each year between 2001 and 2007, according to Internal Revenue Service documents.
Financial records show that the fair has $11 million worth of cash and investments. The fair has an agreement with the city, which owns Fair Park, to have a reserve fund of at least $4.5 million.
Other fairs wish they could be so lucky.
The Michigan State Fair shut down after Gov. Jennifer Granholm announced the state would no longer subsidize the fair, which has been losing money. but some want to create a nonprofit group to take over the fair.
South Dakota's state government reduced its fair funding nearly in half, so the fair relied more on volunteers for this year's gathering.
Ohio was facing significant cuts in state funding, threatening next year's fair, but money was reinstated last week. Colorado's state fair emerged debt-free this year after being in the red since the early 90's.
Fairs are benefiting from people wanting to stay closer to home to save money during those tough economic times. Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland encouraged Buckeye State residents to enjoy a "staycation." at their state fair.
Several fairs marked records attendance, including Minnesota and Indiana. Fair attendance was also up in North Dakota and Ohio.

McKoy believes the State Fair of Texas will get a boost. "We're a direct beneficiary of staycations," he said. "We think the same is gong to be true here as it has been across the country.
things new to this year's fair: Dart service, more than 25 new foods, including Deep Fried Butter, and Fernie's Deep Fried Peaches and Cream, winners of this year's Big Tex Choice Awards for best new foods. Other new foods include fried pecan pie, fried sweet potato on a stick, deep fried peanuts and chocolate-dipped jalapenos.
A band of pirates searches for gold and jewels in the new comedy "Pirates of the Caribbean Dive Show." The Esplanade Fountain with its 700-foot reflecting pool with a light and water show. Learn how to pan for gold as Colorado Mining Company offers a 15-minute educational sessions in the Coliseum Market Place. Mary Poppins, a musical, the Cotton Bowl will be soccer central with all sorts of soccer games including a match between Mexico and Colombia( Me: I bet there are fights and many arrests here) and to top it all off...Oprah's coming to the fair. She will tape her talk show at the fair on Oct. 12. (Me: that should be a hoot and a half).
I remember when I was a very little girl..right before my Daddy left the states to go to Hawaii, where we were to follow him in about a years time. Daddy took me to the Texas State Fair.just him and me..first we went to a movie in Dallas and I was so excited..I had a new dress, new pants, new socks and new shoes. I, who can remember the silver and black taffeta dress, the pink roses on my drawers and the pink lace on my white socks and the blue shirt my Daddy had on, can't remember what movie we saw..I was just that excited. Then we went to the Fair...Oh my Goddess, I ate cotton candy, ice cream, drank Dr Pepper's, rode all the rides..we finished it up by riding on the Ferris wheel..It stopped while we were at the very top and I remember looking out at all the lights and the stars in the sky and sitting there by my Daddy way up in the sky thinking.."It just doesn't get any better than this."....

People have been sending me jokes to cheer me up...it's working..

The Swede's wife steps up to the tee and, as she bends over to place her ball, a gust of wind blows her skirtup and reveals her lack of underwear.
'Good God, woman! Why aren't you wearing any skivvies?', Ole demanded. 'Well, you don't give me enough housekeeping money to
afford any.'
The Swede immediately reaches into his pocket and says, 'For the sake of decency, here's a 50. Go and buy yourself some underwear.'

Next, the Irishman's wife bends over to set her ballon the tee. Her skirt also blows up to show that she, too, is wearing no undies.
'Blessed Virgin Mary, woman! You've no knickers. Why
not?'She replies, 'I can't afford any on the money you give me.'
Patrick reaches into his pocket and says , 'For the sake of decency, here's a 20. Go and buy yourself some underwear!'

Lastly, the Scotsman's wife bends over. The wind also takes her skirt over her head to reveal that she, too, is naked under it.
'Sweet mudder of Jaysus, Aggie! Where ta friggin hell are yer drawers?'She too explains, 'You dinna give me enough money tabe able ta affarrd any..'
The Scotsman reaches into his pocket and says,'Well, fer the love 'o decency, here's a comb.....Tidy yerself up a bit.'


The next time you hear a conservative accusing progressives (aka liberals) of being unpatriotic and anti-American, tell them this: "Progressives invented the American ideal and inspired the American Revolution. Conservatives, then known as Tories, opposed it. Since then, every major advancement in American freedom, democracy, social justice, and economic opportunity has been fostered, fought for, and won by progressives against conservative resistance. Now who's anti-American?"......................yeah, you assholes..
my name is Jacque Denney and I approve this message.

I usually don't do jokes, I'm funny enough with out any help..but this one cracked me up. Actually by the time I got back to my email Shady Lane had sent me the first one and decided to add it to the second one..cause they both made me laugh..

Deaf Sex Two deaf people get married. During the first week of marriage they find that they are unable to communicate in the bedroom with the lights out since they can't see each other signing, or read lips. After several nights of fumbling around and many misunderstandings, the wife figures out a solution. She writes a note to her husband: 'Honey, Why don't we agree on some simple signals? For instance, at night, if you want to have sex with me, reach over and squeeze my left breast one time. If you don't want to have sex, reach over and squeeze my right breast two times. The husband thinks this is a great idea. He writes back to his wife that if she wants to have sex with him, reach over and pull on his penis one time. If she doesn't want to have sex, pull on his penis two hundred and fifty times.

As we men age, we start seeing more of the medical world, which nowadays seems to include an increasing number of women as our physicians and therapists.
And in my case, a new urologist.
My family doctor recently referred me to a just-out-of-medical-school female urologist. I was skeptical, but I went to see her yesterday..
Now normally I would welcome this sight; she's absolutely drop-dead gorgeous as well as unbelievably sexy.
But a urologist?
She told me that I need to stop masturbating.
I asked her why.
She said, "Because I'm trying to examine you..."

Sigh.....I'm pretty sure I'll be able to do this post without throwing myself on my keyboard and sobbing my heart out..but then again, maybe not. I am still an open wound and miss my little friend so much, but I'm trying to be a big girl and not make a complete fool of myself over this.
So...West, Texas...holy shit!...we have had so much weird shit going on I don't know where to start..First of all we had a kidnapping.. some woman who was the friend of the lady that had the 1 week old baby came over and said she would watch the baby for her at the house so the mama could take a nap. When she woke up the 'friend' and the baby were gone. So she called around and nothing..she called the police and then the girl shows back up with no baby and tells the police she tossed the baby in a dumpster..which is what she had done. The baby was in the dumpster for about 2 hours face down with old insulation tossed on top of him. The West Police were really on top of things and found the baby right away and he was in the hospital and doing fine..Tough little critter. the girl is 25 and had been telling everyone that she was pregnant and due any day. They think she had planned on taking the baby and passing it off as her own..In a town the size of West, I'm not sure how she planned on getting away with that..which is why she probably ditched the baby..she's in jail charged with aggravated kidnapping and injury to a child with bond set at $500,000.
So we not only are getting over the shock of that, when one of the tenants back by Babs said that the maintenance guy showed her his penis. She is mentally challenged and has a tendency to 'stretch the truth' and so far the police are not taking her seriously. The guy in question is someone I don't think is capable of doing what she said. He's a weird duck and wears those nylon shorts that are almost like underwear and I think he bent over to fix her water heater and she caught a glimpse of his penis and freaked.. I told Babs, hell, if he's going to go wagging his weenie around, send him over to my place.
Then today we had 'apartment inspection' as the apartments are being sold and they are checking on the shape, etc. She asked me if I had any complaints and I said 'funny that you should ask'..and told her I was pissed and thought it was a violation of my civil rights as to not being able to have a choice in my TV reception..That the idea of these apartments was to give affordable housing to old farts living on fixed incomes and yet we were forced to pay for a cable service that was crappy and was way to expensive. That I wanted to get a satellite dish and wasn't allowed to by the apartment rules. She said she would mention it. Then Babs told them that the outside lights would burn out and they did not replace them in a timely fashion(and let me tell you...it's really dark back there at her end of the apartments) and that they didn't keep the grounds up and to avoid extra work like mowing, they used weed killer to kill the grass. So we're thinking some shit is going to hit the fan..and of course, old Tony told them about the supposedly weenie wagging maintenance man.
Hmm, what else..oh yeah..it's been raining off and on for days and we've gotten lots of it. I refer to them as gully washers...and my okra is loving it..I have little okra penis's popping up all over the place. I think I may have to retire my nekkid rain dancing ass as we have our quota now thanks..
The Heart O' Texas Fair and Rodeo starts October 9-17 and five West High School students have been selected as 2009 Heart O' Texas Sweethearts and will be participating in the upcoming fair.

I'm telling you..we have some very very pretty girls in West.

We have over $3 million dollars for road work on FM 1858 which is Tokio Road..but it's on the other end so it won't be affecting us...good, don't need any more traffic foul ups over construction.
What else is going on?...Amanda Rejcek married Zebulun Peery on June 27, 2009..Jessica Rose Nors is engaged to Mark Anthony Clifton and will be married October 24th at St. Mary's Catholic Church. Ava Catherine Dornak was born on August 31, weighing in at 6 pounds and 6 ounce and was 18.5 inches long.. Logann Carreon turned 3, Christy Jones will be 18 on September 25, Frank Macicek will be 95 on September 29 and Edward Snider was 90 on September 12.
West Trojans will host state-ranked Mexia this coming Friday. I hope to go, but with me you never can tell. Both teams are unbeaten and it really should be a good game. West Food Mart has pork butt roasts on sale for .99cents a pound.Community Grocery has top sirloin steaks for $3.29 a pound. There is a new listing for a country brick home on 14 acres, 3 bed, 2 bath, very large country kitchen, garden room, enclosed porch, stock tank, carport, separate shop building for $269,000. If your interested in a business ..Ray's Electric and Plumbing plus 2 leased retail store fronts has dropped down from $125,000 to $115,000. Wild West Steakhouse( 2 story building) with fully equipped kitchen and bar, furniture, and fixtures for $259,000. Now there is a place I'd like to buy..change the name to Jackiesue's and fix nothing but home cooking my style. Sigh*.....West Feeds is celebrating it's 20th Anniversary with refreshments and can register for door prizes.
We have really had some cool and wet weather..normal for this time of year is about 88(and it's always about 90) and it was 67 today...Down to the high 50's at night..it's wonderful. But think by this weekend it will be back to the 90's...So far we've received over 8 inches...of rain.

I on the other hand...oh never mind.
Ok..that's all the news from West. Hopefully I'll perk up and be back to my natural asshole self..but right now?...just don't have it in me.
