I read it on the internet, so you know it has to be true.

But Canada comes ahead of any of the states anyways...

A place that calls round slices of ham bacon? I don't think so! Anyhow, on the maps we got in school here, Texas was bigger than Canada. Since Texas has grown since those days, I assume it is a lot bigger now.

My death wish came from a bottle of Mad Dog 20-20.
Nearly 50 years later and I still cringe at the thought.
This stuff wouldn't polish shoes, it would eat them up like acid.

In Texas we call that a "pocket pistol".

That has the most foul taste of anything you could drink. I have never understood why anyone would drink it more than once.

You can be allegedly mature and still like the booze too much, but as Winston Churchill is said to have argued with a disgusted opponent: 'Yes, Madam, I am drunk, but in the morning I shall be sober and you will still be ugly.'
At his funeral his coffin was unloaded from the train at the nearest train station to where I live. There is a sign on the fence just by the ticket machine to say so.

A real killer and a guarantee of amnesia and some other very strange happening in the brain is Anisette shots chased with Tequila.
Wow. Anisette and Tequila. Nuts! Did some strawberry shortcake moonshine couple decades ago, cant remember a thing. Wife was more than happy to fill in the blanks...
Good thing there was no social media back then!

Yep...in Mexico they have the genuine thing..not "decorative" Anisette and it is damn near deadly.

I've just read about arrangements for his funeral ... appropriately impressive!

Last time I checked, Texas was part of the US.

Like Judge Roy Bean.

Like Lily Langtry.


The Yellow Rose of Texas.

That is not recognized by many here......of course they recognize it when Fed funds are involved!

I am starting my mornings opening that User Control Panel....it makes me feel so much better and inclusive to see that new infraction. It means someone notices me, that I exist, that I matter...even if in a negative way. It lets me know that even with two broken feet, a twisted knee, and dementia inherited at birth....all is not lost. I am still a "Rupert Type".....and if fortunate, will always be!

Who say the Mods are mean and evil guys! If they can take the time to care about old Rupert, they are pretty good fellows!

Do not confuse those with "Rupert Types". Those are mentally insane......I only have moderate to severe dementia, and fly Old Glory on the 4th of July...and every other day too!

My Great-Great Grandpa is buried just down the road...with a headstone of the Union Army. He fought for that cause and so would I. So did my Dad and my youngest son.......they fought for Old Glory. It is only the mentally insane that won't recognize their...and millions of others.... contributions to the nation....a Great Nation......still!
