Bag of Randomness for Friday, October 9, 2015


  • While driving DaughterGeeding to school yesterday, she broke the silence and said, “Daddy, I know why we were going on those long family walks together. You and Mommy were trying to get us ready for all the walking we were going to do at Disney World.”  #smartkid
  • I’m not sure why, it I’m pleasantly amazed that someone from Mineral Wells actually follows this blog.
  • With the drama going on with the selection of the new Speaker of the House, I can’t help but think Frank Underwood is behind yesterday’s surprise announcement.
  • During our Disney trip, WifeGeeding took the time to acknowledge my attitude and stated she understands how her family can be overbearing.  That meant a lot to me and made me think how we need think about affirmations and forget to tell others about them.
  • If I heard Barry Switzer correctly on The Hardline yesterday, he said 30 years ago he told Mack Brown that the best coaching job in college football was the University of Texas, and he still stands behind that statement today.  That surprises me, I would always think a coach would go the politically correct route and always state the best coaching job in college football is the university they are most connected to.  He also used the term tow sack, which I had to look up.
  • I keep hearing great things about Cattleack BBQ.  It’s only open for lunch on Thursdays and Fridays and is one of those little hole in the wall kinda places.  They offer free beer while waiting in line, and they recently won Dallas Observer’s Best BBQ Restaurant award.
  • I haven’t thought about it, but Natalie Dormer does look like Kermit The Frog’s new girlfriend.
  • Disney Cruise Line announces Galveston itinerary; bookings for 2017 open Oct. 8
  • School district to pay $600,000 over death of teens who were hypnotized by principal
  • Today’s dose of ‘MURICA!
  • The frightening promise of self-tracking pillsA new digital pill system could save billions in health care costs — but will courts take it too far?
  • This is the worst picture I’ve ever seen of Roger Staubach.  Sure, it’s a cute moment with his daughter, but look at that sweater vest and how chubby his belly and hips look.

    Thanks for the acknowledgement.

    Your writing is sincere, honest, and I relate a great deal to assessments on life in general. And on top of that I'm a cop in Palo Pinto County. I like hearing positive things that are said about this county. God knows, there is enough of the negative. Keep Blogging!

    You have more than 1 person from Mineral Wells that follows your blog on a regular basis 🙂 Keep up the good work! I went to school with your brother Ben and I live in the mid cities now. Rick Miller MWHS Class of 1985.
