It's 6:23 a.m. and Junior is a t work and Stephen and another guy are downstairs watching Sin City on Dvd.
Sorry I feel like I have to post "Gators Win" as a topic headline, but with two back to back conference lossses, it seemed appropriate. Down by as much as ten and trailing by 3 at the half, the Gators roared back in the second period to beat Vandy by 23 points. Oh MY. I don't know if the big wins or the losses are the flukes. I don't know what to think about this team. BB is just to volatile for me I guess. With the advent of high speed internet around here, I can listen to the games on the net, something I've never really done with BB before. I think I went to only one BB game in my four years at UF. Sometimes we would hear a big roar of a crowd coming from the center of campus, and we'd say "What the??" "oh it's a basketball game', and go about our business. So at least back then somebody was going. Football was the big thing then as in the past and now, and in the future. At the half last night I was resigned to a new mindset: Figure the Gators are going to lose every game, and if they happen to win one, wells that's just ducky, instead of the mindset we probably all had fallen into of thinking they were invincaable and a loss would be a tragedy on par with well I don't know what. So now what are we to do? You tell me. Jacklyn Smith REMAINS one of the world's Great Beauties. Spurrier must NOT be allowed to win in the Swamp!

It's 6:49 a.m. and Junior and Patrick are downstairs playing video games.
And it's day two of the Gators' basket ball purgatory-disgrace. Let's hope this is the last day.

It's 7:47 a.m. and Juniors off somewhere and Patrick's wandering around somewhere.
Didn't really expect the BBGators to self destruct so sompletely. Goodbye number five, hello number twelve. Gamecocks took them apart pretty thoroughly despite the closeness of the score. They went for over ten minutes with out a set up score, what does that tell you? Oh, well. Guess the pre-season was a fluke.

THREE HOURS OF GLORY
Saturday, January 21, 2006
SITE IS NOT RESPONDING.
Friday, January 20, 2006
It's 9:23 a.m. and Patrick and Junior are around, getting ready for bed.
Had a topic, but forget what is was, oh, well. Went caching yesterday with patrick, found three, hid four. Fifty-one degrees out and sunny/cloudy!
Later, 5:55 p.m. Patrick's snoozing and Junior's at work. Remembered the subject of today's blog:
Last night, while sitting up in bed watching "Dancing With The Stars" on the tube with 18,999,999 other folks, heard a bang outside--sounded like something (limb?) falling on the roof of the porch under the bedroom window behind our heads--Patrick jumped about four feet straight up in the air and started barking. That should have been the end of it, but he continued to run around the upstairs and downstairs barking his fool head off, so I got up, and low and behold, outside up at the intersection was the telltail flashing lights of dozens of emergency red white and blue flashing lights.
That's a quarter mile away, but the whole front yard was lit up. Saw smoke pouring out of a car. I guess patrick was barking at the lights? never really figured that out. Anyway I got my coat and mickey boots on and slushed thru the cornfield to the intersection and talked to one of the Responders, to get the scoop.
All it was is an abandoned car on fire in the road. No crash. There were two firetrucks from the township Volunteer firehouse, and numerous police cars and the normal compliment of a half dozen bluelighted first responder pickup trucks.
Any way when Junior came home from work, an hour later. ,there was a flatbed and a wrecker working on the car. These guys always drag this out as long as they can for some reason. It seems like they want to stay there all night. I know they're not getting paid overtime so I'm not sure what the deal is.
There was a fatal crash about a quarter mile in the other direction last year, and it took them an hour to cut the bodies out of the car and get them on gurnies, then everybody hung around another two hours.
A few years ago, a world war two fighter plane crashed and didn't burn about a half mile from here, killing the pilot and that was a two day affair. They practice aerial acrobatics here because it's unrestricted airspace. (read: Flyover territory) So we get the warbirds from Huntigton, the fighter jets from Ft. Wayne and the Tank killers from who knows where lowleveling fast, all the time. veritable airshow. Oh well....

iT'S 1:03 p.m. and Junior's asleep and Patrick with him. Blog was down this morning, don't know why.
I bet that Aniston broad is stewing in her juices, if she has any! Do we need to count the months back to the filming of Mr. & Mrs Smith?
Anyway, another excuse to print a photo of the World's Sexiest Female....

THE GIRLS DONE GOOD
Osama and his minions know,In combat they can’t beat us;So they hope and pray will come a day,Our own media will defeat us.Ignoring all the good we’ve done,Liberals focus on the gore,On losses mounting and body counting,To prove we’ve lost this war.
They disgraced us once in Vietnam,So now these leftists feel,That again they’ll win with media spin,And make America kneel.But defeatists aren’t the only ones,Learned lessons from the past;Back then we swore we’d lose no more,This time we’re standing fast.
The Internet’s exposed them,As elitist media liars;They stand unclothed and widely loathed,Our foe’s force multipliers.Some day when all our troops return,With Iraq on freedom’s path,The liberal elite who sought defeat,May face some Righteous wrath.
