Texas Gold

We don't know where we'll end up, under the Divine Providence, in the grand lottery of life. Some find themselves in Detroit, others languish in Hipster Hackney, or Aberystwyth, which is a small crabbing community on the Welsh coast. Some, the lucky ones, land in Texas.

A Typical Texas Street Scene

And I'm not complaining; it has guns, horses, dogs and porches, it has Karen's Authentic Mexican Food, and the people are friendly too, mostly. It also has big skies and a sense of freedom, provided you don't mess up and live in Austin, but even that den of iniquity is better than Washington, Chicago, Philadelphia, or the so-called state of Delaware.

So count your blessings if you live in Texas, and thank God for His beneficent mercy. Rumors that the local Shamrock Pick 'n Steal filling station, in this agricultural haven that I'm writing from, sells watermelon flavored "blunts," may, or may not, be true.

God bless,

Blue Wolf seems content at the moment. The jihadis in Hillsboro must have been suppressed, such that Texas can remain free and safe.

Just think, you could be back in the parish in Baltimore or in some other urban crap hole like Bayonne, New Jersey.

Since I have visited the compound and eaten two burritos at Karen's, I know how rough you have it...

It's a hard life, here on the front lines of the War on Weather.

I've been blessed to have lived in Texas, Arizona, and now - beautiful North Idaho. We ignore the first 17 years in Minnesota. It's just too embarrassing.

Blue Rikono picked the right porch!
