Jesus Wearing Cowboy Boots In Paris TX ...

watching over the grave of Lieutenant Willet C Babcock, b 1828 d 1881 Served in the CSA. Owned a Furniture Making Factory and was ahead of his time. He must have had a sense of humor. I read the statue cost $2400.00 which was a small fortune back in 1881.

Watched Another Great Movie On Our Home Theater ...

Mulholland Falls. I had seen this once before and think it is an under rated movie. It is set in 1953 Los Angeles. That is the same year Dudley's cousin was elected Mayor and served from July 1 1953 until July 1 1961.

Frank Grilled Something New Last Night ...


He tried some Cajun Boudin for the first time at the Rangers Opening Day Game at a Tailgate Party. He said it was pretty good so he bought some at the store. We ate grilled Boudin and Crawtator Chips and Dudley drank a Lone Stat Beer. We listened to Cajun and Zydeco Radio on Pandora on our new Home Theater while we ate. Frank and Dudley must be part Coon Ass!

Watched A Good Movie Last Night ...

on our Home Theater, Gangster Squad. Dudley has always enjoyed watching a good Gangster movie. The Untouchables is his all time favorite. Another good one was Public Enemies about John Dillinger. It was enjoyable seeing a Gangster movie set in Los Angeles during the late 40's. In 1953 Dudley's third cousin, Norris Poulson became the mayor of Los Angeles after serving two terms in Washington DC as a United States Congressman. There were some scenes in the movie of the LA City Hall Building downtown. Norris's Mayoral Office was in the Penthouse Suite on the top floor. There is a big Veranda where he could walk outside and lookout over the city.  Some days the smog was so bad you could not see very well or breath for that matter!

Got Our Home Theater Installed Today ...

it is awesome to say the least. Now if I can just figure out how everything works. Going to call the cable company and see about getting a new HD cable box and I need to upgrade to an HD cable package. Going to check into the cost of that and also check the prices for Satellite HD TV.

Frank Worked All Weekend In The Yard ...

He borrowed a blower from his old boss at the lawn service and spent all day Saturday pushing all the leaves into big piles. Sunday morning, Jeff came over and helped put the leaves into bags and drag them to the curb for pickup by the Trash Truck. I believe they filled 68 bags in total, we have a lot of trees down in the creek bottom. Frank mowed our yard yesterday afternoon and the house and yard really looks great!

Dudley Had A Cabinetmaker Rebuild ...


his book shelves to make room for his 60" Flatscreen TV. Dudley is going to have a nice Home Theater when everything is installed and hooked up. Frank is going to stain and clear coat the new boards this weekend and hope to get the rest of the work done one day next week. It is going to be great when it is finished.
