Surprise in my rear-view mirror

There’s plenty of construction going on in Downtown Dallas, near Deep Ellum.

Today, on Good Lattimer Expwy, I looked in my rear-view mirror and saw this…

At first I didn’t know what it was. Since traffic was not moving, I decided to get a better look, and saw it was a front loader. Not your regular street car.

Of course I’m thinking, If I don’t speed up, he’s going to dump all those rocks on me. Luckily, he didn’t.

DMV Fun Part 2

I finally went to get my license this week…this time in Cedar Hill.

I decided to drive the 15+ miles from where I live because I heard the place doesn’t get too packed compared to other DMVs. It opens up 8am…so I got there at 730am…and saw this:

A healthy line of at least a dozen people.

Luckily, I was in and out of there in about an hour and 20 minutes.

Painless…compared to other DMVs.

Training Camp Excursions

Our new sports guy Matt Barrie is spending WAY too much time at Cowboys training camp in Oxnard.

So instead of watching finely tuned athletes sprint on the field, he decided to check out Cali’s other sights.

Namely, these guys:

Is it me, or does Spiderman look like he couldn’t climb a wall to save his life?

As for Gene Simmons….I got nothing.

Matt also found time to see another star perform on her day off…

That woman barely staying in her dress is Mariah Carey.

Only in California in August can you see the Dallas Cowboys, Mariah Carey and some celebrity imposters.

Steal in Uptown, End up downtown

Dallas police busted another suspect possibly connected with the Uptown burglaries. I walked into the room where the police were holding the loot…and it was mind-boggling.

Those boxes are filled with DVDs, clothes, CDs, a Bose radio, books (really?), video games and much, much more.

The box above? Yeah, that’s lingerie and power tools. The perfect combo….

This box is shoes…and computers.

A big screen…how does one “walk out” with a big screen? Wow…

The last pic is of stolen Louis Vuitton luggage. That’s not cheap.

Omar lays an egg

I told readers of this blog that a woman named Melody named a canary after me. The red canary is vibrant red color and sings like a star. He also lays eggs. Lots of them:

I’m not a scientist, but I know it’s pretty hard for boy birds to lay eggs. Turns out, Omar is a lady bird (let the jokes begin).

Melody has changed Omar’s name to Oma. Oma has popped out 4 eggs.

I wonder if that makes me the father?

DMV = Torture

I’m off Mondays, so I decided to go get my car tags and license switched back to Texas. A little late, I know.

I woke up bright and early, went to the records building in Downtown Dallas, got my plates and then went to the DMV.

When I get there…it’s rock concert packed. Not like a “Metallica” rock concert, more like a “James Taylor” rock concert. I snapped a picture of all the people waiting…in ONE of the TWO packed rooms:

 I finally make my way up to the counter to get my license. I present the guy: my current valid Oklahoma license, my proof of insurance, my vehicle inspection and registration, show him my plates and present a US passport….and it wasn’t enough to get a drivers license. Needless to say, I was angry. Why wasn’t I getting a license? I was playing by the rules! What did I forget? My social security card.

With all the I-D theft stories I’ve done,  I have my social security card locked up in a little box, far from civilization. And this guy at the counter wanted it? My passport wasn’t enough?

Well, my girlfriend brought all her stuff, and at 930am, was handed this little stub:

The second line from the bottom says :Waiting Time: 2:29 hrs.

WHAT! It’s 930am! How many people are working? One?

We waited 10 minutes and only 1 name was called. At that pace, they’ll be calling her number sometime in September.

Dallas Cowboys Training Camp

Here are some of the questions going into training camp for the Dallas Cowboys:

–Is Terry Glenn going to sign his contract?

–Will Tony Romo win a playoff game (notice how it’s not “will the Cowboys make the playoff?”)?

–Is T.O. going to carve a place for himself in the Ring of Honor with his play this year?

–Are the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders going to continue their strong performance AGAIN this year.

I can only answer one question…the last one.

YES THEY WILL!*
