Way To Go 'Stros!

The Astros swept the Cards and I got to see it!

Roger Clemens was masterful considering he was working on only 3 days rest. Lance Berkman, my favorite Astro, had some minor adjustments to make or perhaps some equipment malfunctions. As luck would have it, I managed to capture THREE such adjustments by The Big Puma!

Hmmm....or should I say he was adjusting his big puma?

Alive & Well

I'm both alive and well. Well, ok, I'm alive anyway...the jury is still out on the 'well' part.

The Grand Jury biz has kept me busy. Not so much the actual work, but the getting up at the butt crack of dawn and driving to town with all the other loonies much less coming home in the afternoon with all those that ought to be at work instead of clogging the roadways. I think half of them are drunk already too!

I've been to two baseball games this week with another one scheduled today. By tonight I will have seen Roger Clemens's farewell to Minute Maid TWICE this week! The first one Wednesday afternoon was so darn emotional and well done I don't know how they can top it today, but I'm willing to risk seeing them try. Winning four in a row for a change would be a good start! I still don't think they can go anywhere with this final florish, but what do I know anyway. I thought they'd win at least one game in the world serious last year and boy howdy was I wrong.

The death of the HPD officer just doing his job was tough too. Yet another loser felon out in the real world instead of being locked up with the key thrown away took a good guy out. The officer was doing his job, that's all, just trying to earn his pay and make the streets a tad safer for all of us. There is nothing in the world sadder than watching uniformed police personnel crying in public. It's certainly not fair, but we tend to think of them as tough and having seen it all and nothing sticks to them. Wrong. They are human beings with emotions just like the rest of us. They know far better than most what a thin BLACK line there is between life and death and just how easy it is for them to be pushed to the other side. May God rest his soul and comfort his family. Be safe, guys and gals.

Mix-up on Houston chase policy ends in arrest

Mix-up on Houston chase policy ends in arrest

Way to go Harris County! This is the prime example of why the "no chase" policy in Houston is a big bag of crap.

Here's a video that should be required viewing by all the movers and shakers in City Hall to show them how real men respond to the justice system's detriment and puts the blame where it belongs....

As usual, Jason summed it all up nicely in this post and several others on the same topic.

I had to convert it to a .jpg file to get it to work, but, hey what's a little work to get such a cool seal!

This then is the Official Seal of TexasGoodies Blog. (Doesn't that just give you goosebumps?) (I'd of put goosebumps in the design, but they didn't offer any!) .
