Dorky Carter

I have posted this picture before but it is even more special today. The little girl on the front row with her arms crossed and a smirk on her face is my dear friend Dorky Carter. This picture was taken December 7, 1941 when her mother heard that the Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor. She thought the world was coming to an end so she got the kids together for one last photo. Dorky passed away last night at 2:17, peacefully and surrounded by her family. She was the toughest old gal I have ever known and she will be missed.

Tell me again there is no God.

Of course God loves everybody but it's obvious He loves Wise County best.

No more Kohl's.

Last June I sent a nicely worded and understanding email to the address at the bottom of the Kohl's flyer that was sent to my house. Tonight, 5 months and dozens of flyers later, I screamed at some guy who probably lives in India to take me off the mailing list right now! I kept yelling at this poor guy to not put me on hold, don't transfer me or take a message. Don't send me to somebody else. Man up and hit the delete button over my ex-wife's name. The same ex-wife who has never lived at this address but to whom this junk mail is sent. *sigh* He gave me the corporate number to call between 8-5 CST M-F. Half a dozen emails, letters and phone calls over 5 months and still nothing. How hard can it be Mr. Kohl? Well, anyway, no more Kohl's for me.
