Parents and Siblings
Dateline: Las Vegas Paris Sportsbook International Branch Office. Just put my twenty on my team to win over 59 games this season. Usually, I put my twenty on them to win the pennant. Odds 500 to 1. I’m pretty sure the bet taker doesn’t even register my bet. The cashier merely winks at his co-workers and pockets the money. But this time I could bet only on them winning 59 out of 162 games. Happy Dance.
Dateline: DFW Airport International Branch Headquarters, chair in the corner, face to the wall.
First, I’d like to apologize to those unfortunate passengers on flights with me this weekend. If you are thinking, “Maybe I was on a plane with her and I didn’t know it,” you were not. If you recall a short blond woman, her agonized face mashed into the window, who seemed determined to cough up her lungs, or heard one side of the 737 you were in crackle and thunder, just maybe you were. I’m very, very sorry.

Dateline: San Antonio MiTierra International Branch Office. Home of most beautiful bar and an incredible bakery. Working with mariachis and tacos. Life is good.

The Appalled Lady (AL) was writing to inform the city of a natural resources problem that, perhaps, the rest of us didn’t know about. Austin, Texas is the home of More >
Dateline: Chili’s bar, Little League World Series Final. These kids are great fun.

Remember herding sheep in other countries. The swimmers do look a bit younger than the third graders in the situation below.

“Thinking for Yourself” Therapy on Someone Else’s Dime
Dateline: Mi Terra Restaurante, San Antonio. Davy Crockett died down the street not that many blocks in Fall of the Alamo. (Played in the latest remake by Billy Bob Thornton who delivered the one good line in the movie. As the Mexicans held him up to be shot, he shouted, “I gotta warn you, I’m a screamer!” ) The remains of the Alamo dead are in a vault a few blocks at Flores and Commerce in the San Fernando Cathedral.
Group Think versus Thinking for Yourself is a tricky More >
How much of who you are is just holding off your fears?
How much of who I am is just a reaction to too many episodes of Most Shocking Police Videos? (Gotcha.)
Back to The Wrestler. Warning: Plot busters revealed in this post.
Randy the Ram (Mickey Rourke), The Wrestler, is a man who split rather than figure out how to have close relationships with people who were actually close (wife, daughter, friends).
