done deal, dang dan, shark week

well its a done deal
why did it take so long to do it
think they were just jacking with us

maybe our 401k values will go up today
since they went down on friday
a crisis was averted but
more work needs to be done

wonder where those cuts are going to be
here in texas it was mainly on the backs of the poor and
on the kids via education

cuts are good but we have to have more revenues
also where could we find them
lets start with those with incomes over the middle income levels
as the middle income folks are suffering the most now
and of course those mean old oil companies could be taxed
more and desubsidized

still like the idea of a new political party that is made of the
people in the middle of the political spectrum-thats the real majority

dang that dan he just fizzled out
he hit the coast of southern texas and it was like a wall
there was hardly any rain out of the storm at all
texas continues to suffer the worst drought maybe ever

my rainwater levels are getting dangerously low again
we sure needed that rain
hope i dont have to purchase water

last october when we got a 10 inch rain i had 3 of my large
tanks unhooked so i lost a huge amount of rain that day and
then in may we had 6 inches of rain total here but
at that time i was redoing a gutter and had several tanks unhooked
and lost over half of that rain
my fault bad timing to do repairs so
may actually purchase water today just to be safe to have some

if i had not been disconnected on those two days i would have
plenty of rainwater available
i am in the process of reconnecting lines so that all my rainwater
tanks are now reconnected back together so this wont happen
bad timing

i see a large storm brewing in the atlantic maybe we will get some
rain from it
dang it must have been rough being a farmer and rancher in the old


every august i look forward to shark week on discovery
its a good break between the summer and the start of football
how can those guys dare to swim with those big old white sharks
are they stupid or what

yesterday they put this diver in a big plexiglass cage and put him in
the water with the big great white sharks then
they took the guy out and put in some bloody meat
none of the meat was in the water at all but this big ole great white
shark came in at full speed and rammed the plexiclass cage and
broke the side of the cage

bet that diver wet his suit

hope all of you that are going to the beach have gone by now
if not dont you watch shark week on discovery
