Under the heading of confidential.

Well,this doesn't happen very often, but this blog will be minus a few of its usual pithy comments.  There is so much this blogger wants to say, but all if falls under the heading of confidential.  Confidential.  Now there is a word that gets stretched a lot.  Just how confidential are the secrets given to you?  When someone tells you something in confidence, do you keep it quiet, or do you share with just one person?  Is it okay for you to share the secret is you swear that person to secrecy?  What if they tell just one person, who tells just one person, who tells just one person…? You see were this is going, right?  The best course of action when you are trusted with a secret is to prove yourself trustworthy by not telling a single soul.  Even if keeping quiet makes you feel like you are going to burst like a big old ripe watermelon left out in the July sun too long.  Deep gusty sigh.  This blogger is not privy to the…

Is she the ONE?

Ahh.  Sunday.  Many people here in Miller would agree that Sunday is a day for God, family, and rest.  There is a feeling in the air here, when the bells of St. Anne’s Episcopal begin ringing, that defies explanation.  It just makes us Millerites happy to be living in our own little piece of paradise, snakes and all.

On to other more interesting developments, was this blogger the only one who saw our BB and Mr. I could fly if I had a red cape at church together this morning?  They certainly looked cozy sharing a hymnal.  The ladies tongues were wagging all around the congregation.  People are beginning to ask, “Is she THE ONE?” If you want an objective opinion on the matter, this blogger says, “Yes, she is.”  Now a certain someone just has to realize that God has sent him someone worth building a life with.  Remember, you read it here first, and you know that this intrepid blogger will be monitoring the progress of this relatio…

Cooling off with a little night swim.

Bless my soul, it's certainly swimming weather here in Texas.Miller is in deep East Texas and is blessed with an abundance of rivers, lakes, and various other swimming holes nearby for those who want to cool off by taking a dip.A person would be hard pressed to throw a rock around here without it landing in some body of water.The down side to all that water is the humidity.Walking out in the July heat is like being wrapped in a hot, wet blanket that makes the heat impossible to escape.Speaking of cooling off, or maybe heating up would be a better term because our visiting blonde is most definitely creating her own heat wave, if rumors can be believed.Rumor has it that there was some good old fashion horse play in the swimming pool at the Double D.Our local night owl spied the blonde and Mr. DD himself in the pool.Who who who believes that this could be the start of something worth watching?This intrepid blogger wil…

The lazy, hazy days of summerComplete with the brutal sunshine that dries up the creek beds and leaches the moisture out of every inch of the state.  Even the air is barely stirring here in our little town.  Temperatures are holding steady in the high 90s.  The weatherman is predicting that those temperatures will bust into three digits before the week is out.  Three digits.  That means 100ᵒ or higher.  This blogger is breaking out in a sweat just thinking about that kind of heat.  What did man do before air conditioning?

Of course, the heat is keeping everyone inside these days.  This blogger would be forced to admit to being bored, bored, bored if a certain blonde hadn't walked into the Double D yesterday afternoon.  Did you ever hear the joke about the blonde who walked into the bar one day and asked, “Can I get a drink?” “Absolutely,” the bartender said.  “What would you like?  The blonde blinked and stared at the ba…

Now that the hoopla surrounding the Adair—Black wedding has settled down, it is fairly quiet in Miller.  There is plenty of work to be done before the Annual Summer Mudd Festival at Moore’s Mudd Park, but that doesn’t start up for another two weeks.

Over at the Double D Roadhouse, guests continue to make life interesting.  Why, this afternoon a blond bombshell (BB) was seen kicking it by the pool.It’s fair to say, she stirred up more than the dust. A certain man, with a strong resemblance to the Man of Steel (MOS), showed more than a passing interest. Could it be that love has once again arrived in Miller? If it’s true, a few of our local ladies will be sorely disappointed.  Life can be harsh at times. This intrepid blogger will keep an eye out and report back.

 Meanwhile, remember to drink plenty of water and avoid the heart—he he—I meant to say, avoid the heat.  It’s July in Texas, ya’ll.

We are up to 625 followers.  Amazing…

Hang onto your hats, Buckaroos.

July 14, 2014 Ride ‘em cowboy.  The rodeo has come and gone for another year.  The rain didn’t stop the boys from riding the bulls, just made the whole event seem more like the Summer Mudd Festival.  Our hometown boy, Miles Fuller did himself proud.  He hung in for the full 8 seconds, and came in third.  Hear tell he had a bruise or two to show for his 8 seconds of glory.

With that in mind, let’s turn our attention to the arrival of another of Miller’s prodigal daughters.  Word on the grapevine is that this talented artist is taking over her grandmother’s store on the corner of Beryl and Wardley.  Gonna make it shine, she is.  Anyhoo, a certain boy next door (BND) paid her a visit, and the two seemed MY-T cozy.  No, it isn’t the BND who took off after her when she left Miller fifteen years ago.  He has yet to appear, but the grapevine is betting he will.  No, folks, this BND has been living and working right here in Miller.  Could there b…

Have you ever heard such weeping and moaning in your life? Get a grip people, you knew someone would have the right date for the Wedding Pool, and well, since no one was allowed to choose the same date, there could only be one winner.  Seems that Mavis over at the feed store was the one to pick July 4th.  She is celebrating her acumen by taking her family to eat at the Double D.  You can think what you want, but to this blogger’s way of thinking, farmboy is the winner.  Did you see the smile on his face when snowbird came down the aisle?  It was a sight to behold for sure. 

With that in mind, it has reached this blogger’s ears that some of you are speculating as to who might be writing this blog.  Don’t that just beat all?  Next thing you know there will be pool for that and old DT down at the water office will be laying down some new rules for participating.  What we really need is a new romance to heat up and give Millerite…
