What Was That You Said …

via Bus Nuts Online.  Another note from the basement of time.

images-1On the railroad a train with loads short of its final destination, say Dallas Texas, would be on the head-in of the train.  Loads south of Dallas to Houston, would be placed on the rear-end.

So if you were to hear over a radio, “185 go on down to the south-end, we will rip off your shorts and fill your rear-end.

Well, if you didn’t know what was going on, it would sound strange, that is understandable.. Continue reading

Lost Wages

Dropping off the hill in Henderson Nevada, I gaze upon Las Vegas down below in the valley, shimmering in the night heat, she twinkled like a jewel in the desert.  I think I read somewhere that Las Vegas is an Indian term for spring or spring water.  Next time I run into the gunner I will ask him? (A friend who lives out there in that part of the country.)  My throat is parched and dry, it has been a long haul from Oklahoma.  Some 18 hours or so, now but just another log in the firebox of time.

Kickin The Wrong Dog … Sell It Somewhere Else.

Black people are not the ONLY RACE being jacked around in America.  Stop … Look around.  Start with Native American’s … Try life on a reservation with no running water.  American born citizens of Japanese ancestry lost all of their possessions and property during World War II and were forcibly relocated to concentration camps.  They were never repatriated for what was stolen from them.

Stop bitching and crying about slavery and the Civil War. Continue reading

My Favorite Animal

Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, “Fried chicken.” She said I wasn’t funny – but she couldn’t have been right, because everyone else laughed.

My parents told me to always tell the truth.

I did.

Fried chicken is my favorite animal. Continue reading

Some Serious Thinking …

You Remember When …


DSC00382There is a well worn phrase or title for sure. This morning I had Valentine’s Day and my A-B-C’s on my mind.  I chose this subject matter.

The Valentine’s post can wait.

Here it comes, are you ready?

Warning: Contains nothing, absolutely nothing of literary value. As most of you already know.  My blog’s major thrust today shall be, complaining, guilt and regrets. I will try not to let good writing get in the way.

 You Remember When?”  Continue reading
