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

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 24-09-2009

 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…

Stuff on my Mind

Health Insurance: My question is this, if folks can’t afford health insurance today, how can they afford it when Mr. Obama makes it mandatory? And if he turns it over to the IRS for collection is it not a tax?.. I guess I am so dumb….I do not get it….Well, I hope you guys know!!!

Landry Jones: Hey, one bright spot for us New Mexican..This young man from Artesia, NM and back up quarterback to Sam Bradford of The University of Oklahoma was named Big 12 Conference Offensive Player of the Week for his six touchdown passes last week. His coach, Bob Stoops says Landry is “nothing but consistent and solid.”  We are proud of you, Landry.

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox: In a speech yesterday at the University of New Mexico said that he, “decries the wall being built between Mexico and America.” You bet he does… because Mexico does not have to provide for the citizens who can sneak  into America and get jobs and send the money back to Mexico to be spent, and  they can get their benefits at American hospitals and our welfare programs and probably biggest of all, America buys all the drugs that can come across a “leaky” Border. By the way, UNM paid him $25,000 to hear that crap. If the Mexican can come into out country legally, I am all for them…We know several who are here legally and they are wonderful, warm and hard working people…I know most of you feel the same way…

Thanks for listening.  Pete

Football blues…..

Lobos lost….Aggies lost….Greyhounds won…But did you know the Aggie – UTEP Miners games was posponed due to lightening, a break of three hours or so….The extra rest didn’t help though..Next week, the Aggies or the Lobos will win…mark it down…one of them will win since they are playing each other….But how about our fellow New Mexican Landry Jones? Tossed six touchdown passes for Oklahoma.Wonder if Landry will start the Miami game next week?..Artesia folks should be real proud of that boy..I am sure that they are…You know what I think? I don’t think Florida will get through this year undefeated…TCU now has to be the Mountain West’s only shot at the BCS this year. They have Clemson, SMU and Air Force back to back, then Colorado State…Colorada State is undefeated but next week it is BYU for them so we will see..Man, I sure hate New Mexico is not in the mix this year, yet…Do you think we have any chance?….Yeah,… me neither….

W.A. can expired

You remember me talking about 42, a game of domino’s, awhile back and about my bud-in-law and I whipping up on our girls pretty bad? You remember that post? Well, guess what our women said  and I think its kind of bad for a couple of Baptist ladies…Please don’t tell them I told you what they said….. They said they were going to have to get a “new can of whip-a- -” cause their can had expired. I cannot believe they said that….However, it may be true, but don’t you tell them I told…ok…I really didn’t know it would expired cause their present can has lasted for so long…..Well, maybe so, cause we have been beating them bad lately…..

Calvary Nudist Baptist Church/updated Sept 20

Well, just about the time I think I have heard it all, along comes this….I don’t even know what to write about such…First thing that comes to mind though is how do they disinfect the church pews? And does the preacher use a pointer? Do the women bounce when they sing?  Do they do foot washings? I noticed when reading their web site that the congregation is not to undress in the parking lot…They undress in the foyer, near the  closet….If you can think of something to say, let me know…I am dumbfounded….I was going to say its a crazy world, but you already know that…..If you want to attend, its: Calvary Nudist Baptist Church, 3420 Kilgore Road, Tyler, TX 75708….Let me know if they are going to have a Camp Meeting…

Note: updated 9/20/09….There is a Calvary Baptist Church in Tyler…Some have suggested that this nudist church is not really a Christian church at all and I would suspect as much…My fellow believers and I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and we try to obey all his teachings….I really do not think Christ condons such behavior, do you? But He does forgive such behavior….
