Mojo called from the city by the bay and she is doing so much better. Once you find out you’re not losing your mind things start to fall into place. So thanks again Babs. Mo is all a flutter over her new baby. Bailey the cat. He has been in shelter since he was just a kitten and is now 8 months old and is getting more than his share of love and attention from Maryjo and Rolf. He will always have upper respiratory infections and will be what the vet calls “snuffily”….not sickly..I like that…’snuffily’..
We had a great talk about everything, like what a dick head forest gump is, lunar new year, people that like forest gump are stupid, her inability to loosen her grip on anything..she has control issues, which I am sorry to say she gets from her ole ma. She took a 1/2 day off from work to take the new kitty to the vet as she didnt’ trust Rolf to do it alone. Told her, Mojo, if he was so stupid you couldn’t trust him with the cat, you wouldn’t be with him…she agreed..She is having a meeting with her psychotherapist, and her therapist. The therapist is the one that fucked up with the drug effexor and the psy.dr. is going with her to confront the therapist with her “fuck up”…Mojo doesn’t like confrontations and is dragging her heels. Told her she needs to learn to do that and not be afraid to make waves.Now if she was drinking, she would crash into that office, rip the womans head off and shit down her throat. But she is sober and doesn’t like to take a stand and make someone mad.Told her …you do it once and it will feel so good, you will be able to do it alone the next time..But glad her psyc. dr. is going with her as she told Mo, ‘I have your back’……
I played ‘Harlem Nocturne’ for her..She had never heard of it and enjoyed hearing her mom’s favorite song…She thinks it was in some movie too, but we can’t remember which one it was..Anyone remember?
She has also decided not to go back to school just much on her plate. She doesn’t need anything to stress her out any more than she already is. Im so glad. I always try to encourage her, but didn’t want to urge her to go when I didn’t think she was ready.

Holy shit there’s a opposum on the porch. I forgot that Rocky is in and I heard something on the porch and thought it was him wanting in and opened up the door and there eating out of the bowls I had put out for stray cats was…a big ole fucking opposum…He looked at me and went right back to eating ……didn’t scare him at all…I told Rocky,there’s a ‘possum on the porch …….nothing…he could care less…..but now Im worried that maybe that wasen’t a good sign that the ‘possum wasen’t afraid of me…maybe he has rabbies.????fuck…opened the door again..and all the food was gone and so was my furry little friend…damn…may have to stop feeding the cats if it is going to bring out the wild life…I had forgotten that I have found various animals on the porch over the years, one time it was baby skunks, once it was an armadillo and a chicken snake over 6 feet long, and another opposum…judas priest..I live in the city….which reminds me..Jamie has two other dogs besides her white pits…and one is a runt pit named Paris, and Paris chased down and killed a coyote….Jamie watched her do it out her bed room window. They live out in the country and bothered by coyote’s all the time. Not any more..Paris kicks ass..
I got some bad news yesterday..A girl I used to run with when I drank and did drugs with,died of cancer..She was 46 years old..She was always the youngest one but had been a hell raiser, drinker many years before I ever met her..I always tried to keep her out of trouble and even tried to help her off drugs, booze, got her a job, etc. She had problems with everything and fucking over her ‘friends’ was something she was most excellent at, so I was forced to drop her as a friend or do her bodily harm…actually kicked her ass once…forgot about that…I have always been the ‘best friend or worse enemy’ kind of person..and once you screw me over….there is no going back…but over the past 11 years I had seen her about 3 times and decided to let it go( so maybe Im mellowing) and even though we were not friends..I didn’t wish her harm…..So I was really shocked and saddened that she died so young. She has a grown daughter that is a asst. coach for the Baylor Bears girls basketball team and a son about 13-14..The oldest daughter adopted him and is raising him..which is good to know…Tomorrow is the memorial service, and I am not sure if I will go or not. I hate those kind of things, but feel I need to go for her kids and her Im not sure how many people will show as she really did fuck over alot of people..So maybe I should go just because of that…damn…46…..

There were two articles in the Dallas am news today that pissed me off so bad I did’t know whether to spit or go blind. The first was a great article by aTim Giago, an Oglala Lakota, and is the president of the Native American Journalists Foundation Inc…..the title of the article is WHEN DID RELIGION GET TIED UP WITH POLITICS?
It is pretty lengthly so I will do a rough recap..He talks about the fact that the suicide bombers kill and maim in the name of Allah, but their war is in firmly rooted in politics.And ironically, in America, we now are faced with a leadership that leans heavily on religious convictions when making political decisions.President Bush flaunts his deep religious feelings, perhaps assuming that all Americans believe exactly as he. Should our laws be based on the Bible, just as the lasw of Islam are based on the Quran?
History tells us that the Indian people of the Southwest, the Pueblo, were deeply religious, but it was the wrong kind of religiousity. It wasen’t Christian enough. The Spanish conquistadors murdered, maimed and indoctrinated those who did not embrace Catholicism.
The Pueblo men and women were reduced to slavery, while their children were forced into schools where language and customs were beaten out of them, or so the conquerors believed. But some religious beliefs die hard, and the Pueblo people kept their spiritual beliefs underground until it was safe to bring them into the light.
What happened to the indigenous people of the Western Hemisphere should be used as a lesson to the rest of America.The new religious leaders scoffed at their spiritual beliefs, and forced conversion became the law of the land.

So when right after I read this article what do I find but THIS article..
President Bush’s $15 billion effort to fight AIDS has handed out nerly 1/4 of its grants to religious groups, and officials are aggresssively pursuring new church partners that often emphasize disease prevention through abstinence and fidelity over condom use.
Conservative Christian allies of the president are pressing the U.S. foreign aid agency to give fewer dollars to groups that distribute condoms or work with prostitutes.The Bush administration provided more than 560 million in 2001. Secular organizations in Africa are raising concerns that new money to groups with AIDS experience may dilute the impact of the three-year old program.
So what they will do is weed out the programs that give out condoms to prostitutes or iv drug users. Which means your’re going to die…but that is ok…you’ll die in the name of Jesus…
Please Goddess….it’s time….take him home now……we’ve endured enough…smite his ass ….smite him back to a brand new life….make his karma life start at the beginning as he has fucked this one good..he needs to start all over again …as a cockroach…….yeah, a cockroach….one of Babs cockroaches……she will see he learns his lesson as a reincarnated roach…
fuck me till I beg for mercy…..

Written by Elisabeth Robinson….I had emailed Babs earlier and old her that she had to read this book, but by the time I had finished it I knew I had to tell everyone to read it.Well, not everyone because as there are ‘chick flicks’, this is a ‘chic book’….Although guys could learn a lot by reading it too…
I don’t want to say anything that would give away the heart of the book. What I will say is it is a book done in letter form..they are mostly letters from Olivia to her sister Maddie. There are other letters to her friend Tina, to Olivia’s mom, dad and brother, to her x-boyfriend and to various people she has in her life.It is such a wonderful, touching, funny book…Olivia sort of reminds me of Babs, but not..sorta kinda…in a great and wonderful way..but there is one part that I really loved and it is when Olivia and Maddie are on a road trip and they find a town in New Mexico called Pie Town, home of the Pie-0-neer Cafe. Which dates back to 1922 and who’s motto is “Life goes on and days go by. That’s why you should stop for pie.”……….I want to believe that this town exists all most as much as I want to belive in heaven…
I urge all you women who are big readers and even those of you who aren’t to either buy this book(it is a quality paper book, not hard back) or check it out at your library.If you buy it and pass it along…You won’t be sorry…I promise….

In case you haven’t been down to feed Soonerboy the spider you probably missed my “shittin’ rhino”…..I saw it on dom’s blog about the selling of zoo poo and it showed a picture of the shittin’ rhino and I had to have it…was going to put it as my picture but I like the snazzy lighting bolt sooner put there. so i had mentioned that I loved the picture and said maybe I could get Babs to put it on my site…and she did…I love that ‘shittin’ rhino’…I am one sick puppy… thanks to Babs and Dom….ya’ll are plum peaches…

Ahhhh, sunshine…I love that sunshine…weatherman says we will have sun for a few days and then maybe another day or two of rain..We need the rain more than the sunshine and I love love them thunderstorms.Although Babs got the thunderstorms this time, we just got soaker rain…starting to worry about Rocky, he hasn’t been home since he pranced off with his tail in the air. Which means he was out in all the rain, but even then he would normally come home for chow.So someone is either feeding him or he is still humping the ole mama cat that is the neighborhood chippy.The other reason is the one I don’t want to think about….come on home Rocky, I promise to warm the canned milk for you.
There was an article in Dallas am news about how the Chinese-americans feel shorted cause their Lunar New Year is not a national holiday. That the Italian-Americans have Columbus Day, the Irish-Americans have St. Patrick’s Day and African-Americans have Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and the Chinese don’t have any day. The Lunar New Year is celebrated by more than a billion Asians around the world and for the 12 million Asian-Americans in the U.S. they feel slighted. San Francisco already closes its school for Lunar New Year. I can see her point, but only Martin Luther KIng Jr. and Columbus Day St. are federal holidays. Columbus Day is really to celebrate the discovery of America not just for Italians, although they have taken it as there day. By the way…today is Lunar New Year…happy new year ya’ll….Plus there are more Irish in America than Asians, and they would throw a shit fit if Lunar New Year became a federal holiday and St. Patrick’s day didn’t. So maybe we should have both as a federal holiday..and then because the American Indians who have been royally fucked by the invaders, should get them ownselves a holiday..we should have Crazy Horse Day.The Mexican-Americans have Cinco de Mayo Day, so we need to give Porta Ricans a day, and Dominicans a day,and all them Canadians that flock to Hollywood, we can give them a day, and how about them Czech’s, and Germans, and Poles, and Swedes, and Iraqui’s, and Saudi’s, and the French,(nah fuck the French), the Spanish, the Australians, the Russians, the Serbians, fuck…lets just let every race of people that live in the United States have their own fucking Holiday and then no one will ever fucking work here again…every fucking day will be a holiday…then because individuals will be slighted because we don’t have Irish, Scots day…and German,Polish day….and damn, lets not forget handicapped people, we can have a handicap day, a depression day, a polio day, a fucking I have monthly cramps, give me a gun before I shoot some one day……..
Ok, I feel much better now…..
fuckme till I have a jackiesue day

This is a book review of one of the best books I have read since the last James Lee Burke book..This book gets 5 star’s out of 5…It is smart, witty, suspenseful, has great characters, terrific story and written better than anyone else could have..I fucking loved it.Want to see Michael Connelly do a series on this group of people. The good guys are good, with a touch of sneakiness, and the bad guys are really assholes. This book is the reason why I didn’t go to sleep until 9am. I could not put it down till I finished it. Thinking about how I can tell you what it is about without blowing away the story. A defense lawyer who works out of his southern Calif. married and divoriced from a prosecutor with an 8 year old daughter, who although is spoke about and he spends time with is never a part of the story…it is all about the case..the case of a Beverly Hills playboy who is arrested for attacking a woman he picked up in a bar and an old case the lawyer lost….if you don’t read another book the rest of the have to read this one…this my friends is a YAFTA…you have to read it….

I am sure that I have told the story about how I came to quit smoking, but in case you guys missed it it seems to be worth the retelling. I worked as a waitress, bartender at several bars in Portland,Oregon when the boys were young(before Maryjo was born) and their Dad was not around much at all, so basically it was me and my two sons.Back then cigerettes were .35 cents a pack….heehee..anyhow…I smoked 4 packs of camels, non filter every day..During this time there was a big story in the news about this man who had been married and had a son and gotten a divorce and was a really great father while the mother was pretty much a drunk and left the kid alone alot. In the meantime the father had come out as being gay and had a partner. Because of the mother’s lack of care and the fact that the father was a much better parent he sued for full custody of his son and his partner was was willing to adopt him so he would have 2 parents.Today it is not that big of a deal, but back was a really big deal. So I lit up a cigarette one day and Thom threw his self in my lap and started crying…just sobbing and weeping. I freaked out and wanted to know what was wrong. Thom finally quit crying long enough to sob out that if I kept smoking I was going to die of cancer, he was going to be an orphan and a homosexual couple was going to adopt him.I laughed my ass off. But little t-Tom was dead ass serious and would follow me all thru the house weeping this lament every time I lit up.i would hide in the bathroom to smoke and you could see his little fingers wiggling under the door and hear “mommie, mommie,don’t die, the homosexuals will adopt me”…he would follow me to the car when I would sneak out and he was so short I couldn’t see his head but there were those 2 little arms and hands wiggling back and forth…and “mommie, mommie…..what is a homosexual and why do they want to adopt me?…..”…well, adventually he wore me was easier to quit a 4-pack-a-day habit than to listen to that kid cry every time i snuck a cigarette…and other than weed, he doesn’t smoke either.
Now if you’re really having trouble and want to stop smoking..I can send Thom to your house as he is still as obnoxious now as he was then…..
And fyi, the guy got custody of his son and lived hapily ever after.

Hot damn…it is raining….and what is weird is the birds are making the damdest racket I have ever heard…The trees are full of those ugly black birds, not grackels but the black birds with shiny blue on their wings and they are raising 3 kinds of hell.Freaky.Fuck the birds, it’s raining…If it rains long enough and steady enough it will help the farmers and we will be able to have the cookoff.
I haven’t been to sleep yet. When I get into a good book, it is hard toput down.Plus I plugged away at poppit for a few hours too. When I went outside a few hours ago to get the paper, the yard was flooded..soaked my houseshoes and socks, but didn’t even care…It’s raining ….
There were two articles in the Dallas Morning News. One that truly pissed me off and made me laugh, plus one that made me sad..The one that pissed me off is the one about marlboro cigarettes. Seems last week the Socialist government of Spain raised the taxes on cigarette manufacturers in response to what it called a flood of cut-rate brands targeting younger smokers. Spain’s top manufacturer, Altadis, responded by raising their prices. But American gint Philip Morris shocked everyone by lowering prices for Marlboro by around 15 % and making similar cuts for two other brands in Spain, infuriating consumer groups, doctors and even cigarette vendors fretting over lower revenue. The good part of this story is that the people went on strike by refusing to sell Phillip Morris products in Spain.
good for them…
What shocked the shit out of me was….the prices of cigarettes.Now that is funny. I haven’t smoked in over 30 years so don’t pay attention to what the prices are other than I knew they were high…A pack of Marlboro goe for $4.63 in Italy, $6 in France, and $9 in Britain. In the U. S., in mid-Manhattan, a pack of Marlboros range from $6.80 to $7.40 depending on the type.fuckme till I smoke smoke smoke that cigarette..(old cigarette commercial…most of you are too young to remember.)
I laughed till I blew snot. ….any one who still smokes and pays that much for their cigarettes…deserves to get lung cancer. Well, no one deserves lung cancer, but still…judas priest…Puleeeeeese…..give me a fucking break….anyone that still smokes(I know there are plenty of you still out there) and spends that much money for something that is fucking going to kill you…well…the goddess has a special bip saved just for you..hooboy, I know I am going to piss people off with that one…and I know what your thinking…I will probably drop dead because my arteries will be clogged up with blue bell ice cream and dr.pepper..But it didn’t cost me $70 for a 1/2 gallon or $7 for a dr.pepper….I bet every time an American Indian sees a white person light up a cigarette they burst out laughing.Redman’s revenge..hoooboy…what a bunch of schmucks…

oh, hell, that makes me laugh so much..I don’t even want to get to the sad part…hard to feel sad when I have a mental picture of you smokers paying $7 for a pack of cigarettes……hoooooooooboy….hahahahahaaaa

Because of the lack of rain, the unthinkable may happen..they may have to cancel the annual cookoff.It’s planned for March 18th but if we don’t get some serious rain between now and then, they will have to cancel..The state burn ban has already been the cause of seveal cookoff cancelations.
One of the young ladies that works at community has won Czech Queen. Last year we had a Miss Westfest.Which means we have some pretty ladies working at our little store.
St. Mary’s is celebrating Catholic Schools week…All kinds of activities are being held, plus an open house.
We have had a slow baby week, only one birth, 3 birthdays and 6 deaths.
The West High School girls and boys split their basketball games in
District, which means they are still playing.
Another business has shut down in West.There are about 6 business’s that have closed and it is sad to drive down the street and see all the bare windows and for sale signs on the door.I did talk to Robert who is manager of the $1 General Store and he said they are going to build a new store and it will be huge…That is the main reason why the little shops are closing. They can’t compete with the $1 store here in town and Wal-mart 15 minutes away.The thriving business’s are resturants, the Hardware and the Lumber Co. There are about 6 little curio, antique, etc. shop’s but doublt if all of them will be open this time next year.We have several beauty shops, flower shops, Dentist, Drs.,one cleaners, 2 dance studios,one video store, 3 car lots, (Ford, Chevy and used)a furniture store, 2 liquor stores, 2 Drug Stores, 1 barber shop,2 grocery stores, 1 meat market,1 auto-parts, 4 bars, (the one that I feel like I closed as it was ‘my bar’ and their business took a dive when I quit drinking and never recovered, has shut down) and other little stores.I also notice more signs for houses for sale then I have ever seen in West before.Noticed too that all the houses for sale have been seriously marked down.One that is such a great deal is a 4 bed-room/3 bath brick home on 1.5 acres,and has gameroom is on sale now for $179,900. Such a deal.
Some one has a 4 month old, black and tan Shihtzu to give away.I thought about calling about it for…6 seconds…then decided I had my hands full with Rocky, that cheating little bastard.
Oh, I just noticed in the business section that we have 2 vets, several insurance companies, a dozer service, septic service, Carpet Sales, Trophy shop,lawnmower service,and tada……a blacksmith…I always forget about our blacksmith.We also have a tin shop…
I always wanted to open a used book store that specialized in mystery, romance and children.Which are the three biggest interest at the library.
Nothing exciting going on. I happen to talk to the Police Chief the other day and he said crime was at it’s lowest..Which is great news.So unless we get rain, the biggest news is the chance that we might not have a cookoff this year….
fuckme till I self-baste
