A Little Bit of Miller in H-town


January 19, 2015 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  Don’t forget to hit your knees today and say thanks for the man who sacrificed his life for the betterment of mankind. In honor of his memory today, everyone should do one kind deed for someone else.  Stand up, and do the right thing.  It is one our freedoms, we just don’t exercise it often enough, consequently, it gets a little out of shape.  So, how about it, give a little kindness to say thanks to a great man. On to new frontiers:  It’s about to happen.  The New Double D Roadhouse Houston will have its Grand Opening January 23, 2015.  Those neon signs that have become an iconic symbol of our little town will soon make a debut in one of our largest cities.  Don’t you wish you could be there when they flip the switch and turn on the lights for the first time?  A little bit of Miller in H-town.  Who'd ever thunk it, certainly not this intrepid blogger.     I don’t know about the rest of you Miller…

No hearts and flowers, if you please.

A New Year's Eve Proposal

It is just this blogger, or does it seem like the years are flying by faster and faster?  The peeps around town say it’s an age thing, like getting older make the clock run faster. If that is true, the clock is the only thing that runs faster as it gets older.  Ahem!  Let’s chalk it up to maturity rather than age.  Speaking of faster.  If you can imagine it, in Middleton, Wisconsin, they have a New Year’s Dash.  Who calls a 5 mile run a dash?  If memory serves, Wisconsin is freezing in January, but 475 people got out of bed and lined up to run, yes run, in this dash they optimistically call a fun run. The fun in fun run is added because you can walk if you chose, making the whole event more of a family affair than a competition.
  In this blogger’s humble opinion, any event that includes a Mother Nature disclaimer--the course could be dry, wet, or even have 12 inches of snow--should be avoided at all costs.  Brrrrr!  Better…
