rwi not dwi, donald duck, football, alzheimers, chocolate

a cowboy dubbed the sixth street cowboy was arrested for 
rwi not dwi-thats riding while intoxicated not driving while 
he and a friend were riding down sixth street in austin texas
(if you have ever been to austin and sixth street you know
what its like at night with the crowds) 
his horse and mule were impounded
he was arrested

apparently he rides his horse through austin all the time 
he claims the horse knows to stop at the redlights
(how does he do a turn signal)
when partying too much he just
gets on the horse who takes him home
(so he says)
just like the old time cowboys horses use to do 

this time he got a ticket (actually for public intoxication-he was drunk) 
after 10 days the horses can be  auctioned off
(you know what that means right)
however people came forward and donated money to get 
the horse and mule out of impoundment

he was back on sixth street again after getting the horse 
back but this time he wont get a rwi
(or so he says) 

good luck sixth street cowboy 
could he replace leslie as the downtown icon

(if you dont know who leslie is then just google 
'leslie in austin'    youll see and read more than you want
to know)

those of you who know me know that im a donald duck
some of you probably contributed to my collection 
thus am known as dr duck by a lot of patients especially 
the younger ones 

donalds full name was donald fauntleroy duck 

he was voted the 3rd most popular cartoon character
behind bugs bunny #2 and that dang mickey mouse #1
oh phooey 

but his voice-now here is my connection to donald- was
provided by clarence nash until his death in 1985
no am not kin to him 

actually as a child my brother and i learned to talk like 
donald duck while watching cartoons  a lot 
(what else was there to do in rural arkansas years ago) 

my youngest son he also learned to talk like donald and 
does an impression almost as good as mine

so maybe it is genetic

dang those steelers messed up my
ravens beat steelers qb up but 
he did a old school yard play-just run
deep and ill sling it and you catch it 
prediction -1

packers crushed the falcons
now who used to be the packer qb
prediction +1

today seatle vs whoever
whoever should win 

jets vs pats
now that should be a good game 
jerk coach vs pretty boy
prediction its pats year again
but jets are tenacious

those who know me know that besides donald duck and 
sports and gardening and green living i love chocolate

read an article about a lady who had alzheimers
craved it all the time and would eat large quantities
when given the chance

have decided that i could do a study on myself to see if 
this could be a new treatment to slow or delay the development 
of the disease

maybe could get a grant to study it  

sometimes a bad thing can be a good thing

  1. Ah, the sixth street cowboy, if he hasn’t already met Leslie, he’ll find he’s a horse of a different color.

    I have found that the saying “What goes around, comes around.” is quite true in life for live is a circle. People need places to work so there’s people like me, construction workers. Everything needs documenting so there’s people like Linda, office workers. People like to do research on things like Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla, Applebee’s brownie with ice cream and sauce with nuts called a Blondie so the need for fine doctors like you. There’s the circle completed. So keep up the research on chocolate and enjoy the benefits of being on this side of the doctor/patient relationship.

    Love ya Doc.

  2. I'm all for the chocolate study. I'm sure there is some way that I can help in that study. :) Maybe I'll need to test the chocolate to make sure it is of the best quality before you use it. :)

  4. rw

    dont like this side of the circle
