An Uzi to get lunch..........

“I will accept the rules that you feel necessary to your freedom. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them.

A Mouse A Day

Cooking Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

It rained here in the South Texas Puckerbrush for two days straight.  2.9 inches of slow steady rain meant very little runoff and saturated ground.  The caliche county road had water all the way across it for much of the 5 miles between here and the hardtop.  Those folks unfamiliar with where the big holes are located found themselves in water deep enough to cover the bumper on the Big Ass Suburban.  Not that I was out driving in that soupy mess,  hell no!!  The Suburban has not turned a wheel in 3 weeks now.
