Friday Cemetery Blogging

Well. This ain't it.

I had a couple of nifty little pictures picked out for ya. Nothing earth shattering or particularly witty, but a couple of grins, none the less. My modem at home has decided it is better to give than to receive. I am all for that sort of altruism, but you can't do much without an ability to receive data. Grumble, grumble, grumble.

Then, when I arrived at work, I discovered that my computer here is dead. D - E - D. Dead. Ka-put. My boss just told me he called the computer guys. They will be here "as soon as they can". Bossman admits he has no idea what that means.

"As soon as you can is like 'I'll do my best'. What the heck does that mean? And what if your best really sucks?"

So. We'll do more cemetery blogging next week - Good Lord willin' and the creek don't rise.
(Why do people even say that around here? We don't have any creeks. Just a few long and wind-y ravines that someone at the highway department likes to label as forks of the Brazos river. They aren't foolin' me, though. I know rivers are supposed to have water in them on a regular basis. So there!)

I wonder if we could dam a dry creek bed and pretend to have lake-front property.

jonboy...I think you would have to have beaver relocation for that to happen.

You could have used MY computer Rach.

Even better - dam a dry creek bed and *SELL* it as lake front property!

ps - maybe you can get some "refugee beavers" from the Louisiana area...

Hey Rach, you need to talk Princess Pixie into taking you to Clarendon and visiting the part of the cemetary that no one visits. There is one headstone out there that shows that the person there was in the Confederate Army. I have a few pics if you are interested.

They not only like to lable them as forks of the brazos river and whatnot, but also build LONG bridges over them for no reason. I mean come on people lets be serious, when was the last time any rivers, creeks, draws, etc had water in them???

You are right, Christmas Lights. Why drive over the river when you can drive through on dry ground, without benefit of Hebrew Patriarch?
