Coach Leach a Lobo?

Hey, Lobo Nation, lets start a campaign to get Coach Leach to come over to the Lobos and light up the three digit scoreboard that was mentioned earlier…I think he can do it….If they will get real mad at him over the Twitter stuff  and let him go, it could happen, huh???…Wouldn’t that kind of offense be nice to watch?….Well, I don’t think he would be interested either, but we could ask…

Hunting Season

Last November I had a birthday…When the kids ask me what I want for my birthday I hate to ask for big stuff, but at time they do give me big stuff, especially if the boss tells them I am wanting something…They are great kids and grandkids and give me much more than I deserve. A lot of the time I request Walmart gift cards, so if several of them give me one, shoot a mile, I can end up with a ton of money….Well, long story short, I combined two or three of them last November and bought me a rifle. Then on Sunday I had it out for the first time since my purchase. No. 2 son, No. 2 and No. 3 grandson’s and I went out shooting all our fire arms, We went out to the City of Albuquerque Shooting Range. Man, was that place busy…I had never shot my 12 gauge and does that dang thing kick..We had several guns out there and it was very enjoyable. The guy in the next stall (or what ever you call them) was shooting a cannon. Ear plugs are mandatory, but the shock wave from that thing would almost pick you up. I asked him what he was sighting in….A . 30o mag Weatherby, I think he said, getting ready for Elk season…I asked “which target are you shooting at?” He pointed at a target far, far, away and he was doing pretty good…Must be a bunch of people going hunting for meat this year…They were all doing some serious shooting…One guy said he was going for antelope…I started to tell him about my post that stated there are no antelope in New Mexico….Pronghorns, my friend, they are Pronghorns….but I didn’t…Someone will tell him…

New Mexico State Aggies won a tough one last night in Albuquerque…To the Aggies: You guys are 2  – 2 and looked pretty darn good….Next week, San Diego State….You guys can win this one….You are a good team…You beat the Lobo’s…The Lobos were beaten by Tex A & M, but did you see what A & M did to UAB, 56 – 19 and the Lobo’s were beaten by Tulsa, but did you see what they did to Sam Houston ST, 56 – 3 and they were beaten by Air Force, but did you see what they did to San Diego State, a 26 – 14 win….So you see guys…YOU CAN BEAT SAN DIEGO STATE…You really can….

Who won???

The sports editior did not hold the press last night for the Aggie/Lobo game….said it was a late game, and it was….,but one wonders if the Lobos had won if the paper would have had a score…I am teasing, kind of, it was a hard loss…James Wright pulled a hamstring late in the game after several exciting runs and we had several nice pass plays….Our kicker missed two field goals, in his range and on and on….Well, you know the rest, the Aggies scored with 39 seconds left in the game and came away with a 20  – 17 win..Now the Aggies are 2 – 2 and the Lobos are 0 – 4. Season looks tough…Coach Locksey knows what to do though and he will tighten his belt and get after it. But next week ain’t looking so good either since we got Texas Tech and they are pissed about the 29- 28 loss to Houston…You know coach, sometimes it’s just hard to get things going…Hang in there, coach….

I received a comment the other  day, from Russia of all places, telling me I needed to do more unique and interesting posts. I try to do a post every day and you know, its hit and miss as to interesting and probably very seldom, if ever, unique….just since I hooked up with wordpress have I tried to do daily posts and I enjoy doing them…It gives me personal pleasure and I hope it is somewhat entertaining to you….I am going to keep trying to write interesting and unique stuff and hope that one day I make the grade…I enjoy hearing from you, even if it is not a pat on the back, if it will make me better, I need to hear it.

Tyler, TX…A Wonderful City

You know, I did a post on the Calvary Nudist Baptist Church, Tyler, TX, then a couple of days later I did an update to mention the good folk at The Calvary Baptist Church, Tyler, TX,  but I didn’t really finish the story like I should have. First, my son and his family used to live there…He worked in a paint store and some of the folks in the painting business may remember him…He loved it there and I was down to see him a few times…We fished in some of the lakes around there, a wonderful place to fish, several nice lakes in the area…We met some of his neighbors and I think his family may have a few friends left there. It is a good town, a nice place to raise a family and very nice people. I truly hope my publishing the bit on the Nudist Church, which may be a hoax, did not come across as negative from me because I never intended for it to sound that way…Anyway, folks down Tyler way, I know you and know about you and forgive me if I produced any negative publicity for your beautiful city….thanks, Pete Hester

Where do people put their money anymore? I am so soured on the stock market that I never want to go that way again…Mutual Funds go as the stock market goes…The Bible says not to bury your money cause God will take it away from you if you do that…Even though the banks are failing, FDIC is talking about borrowing money, but they are still the safest bet for secure funds that I know about….You have to have faith and believe in something, don’t you…Putting money in an old stinky shoe under your bed is not a good idea…In thinking about it, put it in the Bible between the pages….Ain’t nobody gonna look in there anymore….

New Mexico/New Mexico State Football Game

 A quarterback controversy at both schools. State is 1-2 and New Mexico is 0 – 3, so the dad-gum old qb gets blamed for it all, at both schools. So, here’s the deal, pickle….New Mexico is going to alternate quarterbacks….I guess that’s ok if you are unsure who is the better of the two…One or two games should determine that, huh?….Down at State its a different story. The receivers have been dropping the ball so they are going to change qb’s….You read it correctly…Does the other quarterback put stick’um on the ball….Coach, please explain yourself…It’s no wonder some of our young ball players are confused…There is probably an “Aggie” joke in there somewhere, but both those coaches are having enough problems right now, so I will drop it there…One of these coaches will win this week, making the qb decision a good decision…..I still hope they both have good seasons, don’t you?…….

New Mexico State Rep: Karen Giannini

Seems like I am surprised by something nearly every day anymore. Listen to this:  State Rep. Karen Giannini defeated Republican Justine Fox-Young for a seat as New Mexico State Representative and raised only $675.00 in campaign contributions. She was the only one running in the state primary election and spent little running against Fox-Young. She said she knew a lot of the local school people and the labor people and that was it. She went to sleep election night trailing Fox-Young and woke the next morning the victor. Amazing….absolutely amazing….We vote for the party not the person, don’t we…I am sure Rep. Giannini is a fine upstanding young woman, but 675.00. That’s not enough for stamps, is it? ….She is looking for contributions now, however, so one wonders about the next election….well, for that or for whatever they use campaign contributions for….

Fall feels like,..well, cold….

Today is the first day of fall…It was 46 degrees at our place this morning. Pretty dog-gone chilly…. I postponed some weed pulling in the front flower bed until afternoon…It was warm by then and I was kind of thinking that with a light jacket, maybe morning work would have been better…You just don’t know, do you?…What one should do is wait until the dead of winter, then the dang weeds would be dead from frost bite and then I could tell the boss, “I’ll get’um come spring and warm weather.” Do you think that will work?….yeah, well, me neither…
