Dad worked in the oilfields and had a 62 Chevy p/u with a cut out fender for the spare tire a headache rack and tool box.I rode every where on the box with my feet between the box and the cab.When we hit the lease roads I would straddle the spare behind the drivers door and hang onto the rack,that way we could talk to each other.I was 10 yrs.old at the time,I’m 61 now.Best time of my life.

It’s so regulated down here that now you have to purchase a reptile stamp for your hunting license to hunt rattlesnakes.Snake hunting has become a profitable pastime and now the state wants to stick their fingers in the pie and get a little piece of the action.

My wife and I stopped at Cabela’s in Ft.Worth yesterday and did a little shopping.When the cashier got everything rang up she asked if we wanted to donate the change from the balance paid to “wildlife conservation”.It was $0.63.I more or less, by the tone of my voice,implied HE// NO!I don’t think 63 cents is going to break them.They get enough tax money from all the other crap and they fund more and bigger organizations to make up more regulations.We are regulated enough already.

I shoot left handed,write right handed,throw left handed,bat right handed,can use a hammer,saw,or screw driver with either hand.The only thing I can’t do is wipe my butt with my right hand.I’m happy,happy,happy.
You must have brother and/or sisters . A common trait when growing up in a big family where siblings mirror each other growing up.
Congratulations on being amphibious.

I look like a cross between Phil and Si and dress a lot in camo and have had people come up to me in Walmart and ask if they can take a picture of me.Kind of embarrassing but pretty cool at the same time.

That is what is wrong with Texas now.It all started in the late 70′s.There was a mass exodus of people from Michigan and New York and with them they brought their b.s.

No what is wrong is that YOU natives didn't stand up to them and show them the door, in that sweet southern style, youse guys have.

Maybe he should not come to my house,I have a big border collie that stands over a pile of poop and waits for the flies to show up them he snaps at them.He hates flies,chases them all day,teeth clacking,sounds like two boards slapping together.

Sorry Glenn,I didn’t read the article.I did not realize you had already dubbed him Lord of the Flies.I just saw the pics and that was the first thing I thought of.

I do not even care to read this article.Who gives a rat’s azz as to what this freak has to say.
That is what’s wrong with Texas now.Back in the late 70′s and early 80′s there was a big migration of people from Michigan and New York.There used to be a sign on the side of the old road from Ft. Worth to Grapevine that said “Would the last person who leaves Michigan please turn out the lights”. Since then Texas has been on a downward spiral ever since,and that is putting it politely.It makes me cringe to think about what it will be like in another 20 years.Maybe I won’t last that long,but if I do I will probably be in jail for ripping someone’s head off because the older I get the less tolerant I am becoming.

All you people that have generators to operate your water wells,what are you going to do when you run out of gasoline or the genset breaks and can’t be repaired?You better know how to pull pipe and make a bail,or your gonna get very thirsty.

If you ask me Obama is looking for an excuse to open up the Nations Strategic Oil Reserves to bring down the prices and deplete it as much as possible,just sayin…
There is no strategic gasoline reserve. This is a refinery problem. Oil can be free, but ya still gotta have refined product.

MRUNNER,you just stay in MI.or go somewhere else,that is why Texas is so screwed up now.All the immigrants that migrated down here from Michigan and New York in the 70′s and 80′s have ruined Texas from what it once was.If you can’t leave your Liberal/Commie attitude behind we don’t want you here.
