Ain't got nuttin to do...

I lay around, I feel good, I take it easy, I relax. Well, that's a start ain't it???

Sometimes I forget why I retired. Well, no I don't forget, I just ain't do'n what I had planned to do. To climb the highest mountains in every dad burned State what's got mountains, walk for endless miles through barren deserts, follow the trails of early explorers, swim the mighty rivers of America.....stuff like that. And where is the old Billy Bob? Sit'n on his ass in some free County park in south Texas with nuttin to do. There ain't no mountains to climb. Ain't no deserts to walk. And the damn river, you can walk across it at any given point. Very exciting huh?

Have ya ever tried to tell some complete stranger how much fun you're hav'n do'n nuttin? Try it sometime and see how interesting of a conversation ya have. I mean, like damn, how interesting is "do'n nuttin"? And that's where I'm at with my blog writ'n. Bout all there is to talk bout here is Falcon Lake and the "bubba boat". And I'm bout as sick writ'n bout 'em as everbody else is sick of read'n bout 'em.

I had every intention yesterday to go to the lake and launch the "bubba boat". I was ready. Had my water shoes on, batteries were fully charged, a little baggie of treats, water for the dawg....I were on a mission. I opens the door to step outside and the wind like to blow the door plumb off'n "da house". What the hell???
Well now, here it is another beautiful sunshiny day...and the freak'n wind is still blow'n a hunnert mile a hour. "So now what ya gonna do Billy Bob"??? Grrrrrrrrr.......that's what.

There's always Walmart ya know. Always something interesting go'n on at Walmart. If'n it ain't the funny dressed people, it's the handicap go cart races. Or a crowd of "oh, I ain't seen you in a hunnert years...how ya do'n....let's talk for a hour while we block the aisle"? Or the lady stand'n in front of what ya want talk'n on a cell phone. That lady ain't gonna move, I can guarantee ya that. Ya gotta love Walmart.
But, I got me a big ol' Walmart list of stuff to buy. Get'n low on groceries and junk food. No Margaret, I ain't gonna starve to death. And don't forget the camera.

And of course, there's those dishes again. And laundry. And sweep the floors. Well, there ain't no fun in that now is there? And boy howdy, you should see all the dust and stuff what blew in here from all these wind storms. That gonna take a month to get it all out. I'll start that project somewhere's down the road a piece. Did I ever mention I don't like housework? Need me a freak'n maid....or something like that.

    2. This is from Channel 5 in McAllen:

      ZAPATA COUNTY - CHANNEL 5 NEWS confirmed a gunbattle broke out in Mexico across from Falcon Lake. We're working to find out if the battle crossed into the U.S.

      There are several reports of people crossing the border as a result. U.S. federal, state and local authorities are trying to confirm that. Extra resources were called in from Starr County and DPS to help Border Patrol and the Zapata County Sheriff's Office.

      We're told the epicenter for this is inside the Zapata city limits. Extra law enforcement is also present in the state park, which is outside the city.

      CHANNEL 5 NEWS has two crews en route. We'll bring you more details as soon as they're available.

  4. BB, you do a pretty good job of talking about doin' nothin'! Your description of Walmart is right on. I've seen every one of those things you mentioned. Don't work too hard at that housework!

  5. Are those treats for you, the dog, or both of you?

  6. "Excuse me" works most of the time with aisle blockers; If not "EXCUSE ME!" will do the trick. If you find a maid, ask if she has a twin: I need one badly.
