I just wanted to express my heartfelt thanks to the slobs, idiots and inconsiderate people who continually decorate the beautiful Texas landscape with their trash. I guess it’s really a form of art with beer bottles and cans, boxes, plastic drink containers, food packaging and just about anything else you can think of. It just doesn’t appeal to me. Thank you.
NOW HEAR THIS: Not by the hairs of my chinny chin chin
I had never really considered this possibility, but every one of the Three Little Pigs was almost certainly a guy.

Aledo VFD president fights flames of what he calls misinformation, insults and lies about ESD annexation election
As not only an almost 10-year resident of the Deer Creek and Annetta/Annetta South community, but also an eight-year active member of the Aledo Volunteer Fire Department, I have recently learned of some misleading information that has been spread throughout my neighborhood by some of their elected officials concerning the upcoming Aledo Volunteer Fire Department annexation into Emergency Services District 1 election.

I’m 50 now and ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a social worker. My mom and dad subscribed to National Geographic and I read it from front to back every month.
