That Bowling Equipment

Sunday morning at the Hideout

When you are working a location as an oilfield security guard there are some universal rules even though you are a 1099 contractor. No guns, no drugs, no alcohol.  I always abide by the rules even when the Company Man pointedly asks me if “I have protection?” and then follows the statement up with the reveal of a rather large handgun and “This place is the Wild West. I damn sure wouldn’t be down here without protection.” So what is a fella to do?   I got a security dog that does not always play

A Full Days Pay; Harvey's Gone

Hurricane Harvey shortly after landfall

A few years back I hit a rough spot –Easter Sunday 2013 to be exact.  My RV – the Old Girl – was damaged beyond repair and the Big Ass Suburban was not driveable;  all in less than 5 minutes.  I remember well the feelings of hopelessness, despair and uncertainty.  I remember being overwhelmed and thinking ‘ I will never get through this.’  I did something I never thought I would do and asked for your help.  Without the financial help of all of you,  my recovery would have been much less successful.  The extra

Hello Harvey - 12 Noon Saturday

Harvey makes landfall at Rockport

Did you know we have yet another Bush holding public office here in Texas?  Yep, George P Bush, Jeb’s oldest boy, is Texas Land Commissioner.  He was just on the Weather Channel talking about all the relief efforts and the supplies that have been pre-positioned. Texas knows how to do this stuff.  We bailed out New Orleans after Katrina if you recall.  Bush said “This is a marathon – not a sprint.”  How right he is!  On Monday night Harvey is supposed to be back  close to where he made landfall Friday night.  How crazy
