    Buy some boots and faded jeans and go away

    I just returned from a place that has signs on the door telling you that you must have a permit to bring a gun inside.  And other places where it’s a felony to carry.   It’s unnerving to look around a room and know that some of these assholes have guns, and just wonder how stupid they are.  And hope they aren’t that stupid.  I hate being in Texas. But I love Austin.  Once I break away from the beaten path I always meet super cool people and have amazing food and wine.  Austin is one of the few places I’ve found the Delille D2.  That is worth flying down…

    I know killers in the streets

    Syria. I know y’all have been waiting for that shoe to drop.  Well, drop it like it’s hot. I have no opinion on Syria.  It’s such a FUBAR mess that I can’t make a decision.  My Libra is in full effect.  And who knows who is telling the truth. How I see it. Assad used Weapons of Mass Destruction on his people.  Plain and simple.  He did it.  The evidence is there.

    Dig my grave with the Ace of Spades

    Kind of feeling like putting together a freak show today…so let’s start…here.  That’s what’s wrong with backyard breeders.  Amazingly the little dog has lived for three years.  And God bless the woman who saved her and helps her live. And I’m my very own freak show.   That’s what happens when you’re on antibiotics that cause sun sensitivity and you drive your car in the sun.  It’s called phototoxicity and it hurts like a mofo. Yesterday I heard, amongst other things, this band on Devil’s night radio. This isn’t the exact song I heard yesterday but it’s a great representation of this gal’s voice.  We’ll come back to her in…
