  1. That's pretty cool. Our old home place is about fifteen miles from there. Head south past all the wind chargers. When you run out of wind chargers and oil wells, that's our place.

  3. Jimmy Carter is a better man than I. And probably you.
  4. Opening day, Antelope season, Valley County, Montana. 1985. Two young hunters from the University of Michigan drove to northeastern Montana to try their luck at antelope hunting. On opening day, one lets the other out and they agree to meet at such and such point at such and such time. He didn't show up. When darkness fell, the driver headed to the check station to report his friend as missing, and a search party was summoned. They searched all night (27 degrees) and in to the morning to no avail. A rancher's wife from out in the boonies saw something orange against a snow fence as she was driving the forty miles to the nearest grocery store. A couple of hours later, as she was returning with her bags, the orange object had not moved. She got out to investigate, and found the barely conscious Michigander in only his underwear and hi-vis hunter's orange plastic vest. The ambulance was summoned, and young Natty Bumpo whisked to safety. In the ambulance, core temp was reported as 91 degrees, and his bp was about 70/40. His bare feet were filled with thorns and mildly frostbitten, and his head was neatly creased from the path of an accidentally fired bullet from his .247. It was theorized that he had discharged his weapon while climbing through a barbed wire fence and skimmed right down the part of his hair, and his badly concussed self reasoned that the colder he got, the more clothes he needed to shed. By the time he reached the ER, he was warming up and becoming more lucid. CAT scan was normal, CPK (which demonstrates muscle injury) was 27,000 and thankfully kidney function was still nominal. About the time the doctor (me) was finishing his assessment, his frantic mother was on the phone. I reassured her the best I could, convinced her that he would be home hail and hearty in nothing flat, and calmed her fears. She thanked me profusely and asked if she could speak to him, so I handed the phone to the still groggy dude. "Hi Mom" he said, then scrunched his face in agony as he moved the receiver further and further from his ear. Everyone in the room could hear the screaming shrieking and unbelievable blue tirade of reprimand coming from Mom. Her language was befitting of the saltiest of merchant marines-it was indeed a thing of beauty. Eventually the furor subsided and she allowed that she would leave immediately for northern Montana to retrieve her damaged son. After hanging up, his buddy, who had been standing quietly in the corner all morning, approached the gurney and asked how he was feeling. After answering positively, unscathed college kid asks "If you're done hunting.....can I have your antelope tag"? tldr-there are many strange sights in the northern lights. People do weird stuff when concussed and or hypothermic. Hunter's orange saves lives.
  5. Hell’s bells, man-Forrest earned the Medal of Honor in Vietnam.
  6. This is my bride's last year to teach. She will be mentoring a brand new first year technology teacher across the hall. Nice young lady from UT by the name of Mrs. Swoopes.
  7. Crown and Anchor for the win. Beers on me. Tell Dervin I said hello. He was my roomie a million years ago.
  8. CSB alert-Demarcus did, in fact, pork up a bit after retirement. He was a guest on a certain now defunct Nickleodeon aggy related show, and had to don a rubberized fat sumo looking suit for some skit or another. My son was a production assistant on said show, and was tasked with getting the big guy in and out of his costume on a typical steamy Dallas summer day. My boy, who might be 5'8", and no stranger to sweating himself, rode Mr. Ware incessantly about how the chore would have been so much simpler if he hadn't let himself go to seed like that. The skit was a success, they parted great friends (he even has his number), and he lived to p.a. another day. I like to think he goaded him into getting in shape. Edited to add:Just looked at the pics-maybe lost fifteen pounds. Opened a high end gym in Southlake, and has posted a few pics of himself working out. Holy Jesus-he is a beast.
