May 29, 2013


As the 1980’s got started, my comic book crime spree ended. I got busted by a grocery store manager, but not just any grocery store manager. No, I had the misfortune of getting caught in an act of shoplifting by a grocery store manager who also happened to be a fellow member of the Bastrop […]

So Long NFL… (My Semi-Super Super Bowl Review)

February 10, 2012


A Super Bowl started our week, the Giants beat the Patriots. Again. I really hoping for a new team in the big dance this year (since my Saints lost in the 2nd round) but I have to admit, it was a good game. I was one of the biggest detractors when I heard Madonna was […]
