New Cupola


Old-vintage 1984...


Hope this one lasts another 25 years...

Touring The Scene Of The Crime

Uncanny Coincidences

Sorry for the light posting Folks, but we've been traveling and then had limited Internet access when I wasn't standing on the roof building a new Cupola on my Mom's house.

By diverting our route from Panama City westward about 3 miles at one point we were able to travel in reverse the route Michael McClendon took last week while shooting everything in sight.

As I understand it, the "incident" started at his mother's house in the little town of Kinston:

then proceeded down though Sampson, Alabama before moving on to Geneva (off our route.)

The scary thing was that this moron worked here at Kelly's--the meat packing plant within about 3 or 4 miles from our family farm where my Grandfather had his cows butchered since the late 1950's.

I'm glad he decided to drive in the other direction and kill his own relatives rather than coming after mine...

On The Road Again

Strange Circumstances

We're moving north this morning to "Lower Alabama for a few days now.

It turns out our family farm is within five miles of the place he quit working at last week.

I'm glad he went the other direction from us when he decided to make headlines.

Y'all have a lovely day now...if you will...

Gulf County Sunset

Here's What I Saw...

And overseeing it all was of course little Missy The Turbo Pup...

Mexico Beach Induced Coma

More Wastage Of Time...

After a short stay with family in Northeast Florida Monday night, we got here to the Florida Panhandle just before lunch time yesterday.

Between the sand and the sun and the waves and the restaurants (and the crappy wireless internet) I just haven't had the time to sit down and write anything until now.

The weather is awsome, and we have one more day to look forward to before heading back north to lower Alabama to spend a long weekend with Mom.

(No...I wasn't the guy driving around around shooting people in nearby Geneva, Alabama yesterday.)

Hope y'all are having at least half as much fun as we are down here...

Letter From A Law Student

Couldn't Have Said It Better Myself...

This little Gem was published last Friday on Neal Boortz's website:

Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters,

We've stuck together since the late 1950s, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know that we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly this relationship has run its course. Our two ideological sides of America cannot and just will not ever agree on what's right. So let's just end it right now while we can do it on friendly terms. We can smile, shake hands, chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and each go our own way.

So here's a model separation agreement.

Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by land mass, each taking a portion. That's going to be the difficult part, but I'm sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy. Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate taste. We don't like redistributive taxes so you can have those. You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU. And since you hate guns and you hate war, we'll take the firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military. You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell. But you are going to be responsible for finding a biodiesel vehicle big enough to haul them around.

We'll keep the capitalism, the greedy corporations, the pharmaceutical companies; we will keep Wal-Mart and Wall Street. You can have the homeless, the homeboys, the hippies and illegal aliens. We will keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, the greedy CEOS and all of the rednecks. We'll keep the Bibles and we'll let you have NBC and Hollywood.

You can be nice to Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer anybody that threatens us. You can have the peaceniks and the war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we will provide them with security. You won't have to worry about it. We will keep our Judeo-Christian values. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism and Shirley Maclaine. You can also have the UN, but we will no longer pay the bill.

We will keep the SUVs, the pickup trucks and the oversize luxury cars. You can have the compacts, the subcompacts and every Subaru station wagon you can find. You can give everybody healthcare, if you can find any practicing doctors. We will continue to believe that healthcare is a privilege and not a right. We will keep "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and the national anthem, and I am sure you will be happy to substitute in their place "Imagine." I'd like to teach the world to sing "Kumbaya" or "We are the world." We will practice trickle-down economics and you can give trickle-up poverty your best shot. And since it so offends you, we will keep our history, our name and our flag.

Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along other like-minded liberal and conservative patriots. And if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the friendly spirit of parting, I'll bet you ANWAR which one of us will need whose help in about 15 years.

Beach Dog

The Turbo Pup in Action In Her Native Environment...

Well, things are winding down here this evening after a wonderful four day visit back to our little island on the Georgia Coast...we extended our stay by a day because we were too tired to drive toward Florida.

Now our adventure takes us on to the Florida Gulf Coast for a few days for some business and more time with little Missy the Turbo Pup doing things like THIS:

That's a darn fine dog we got there...
