I hear your concerns and I feel your pain, but what about me? How will I
feel when you don't show up?

All you people, listen. I moved up here so that you poor, hot, dry, huddled
masses people would have a place to come cool off in the lake, drink a
little wine, eat some good food and blow shit up. And I just can't stand it
that some of you miss out.

It makes me sad for you, but mostly for me.

Hell, this will probably be my last one. I have almost died up here three
times. How much longer can I hold out? Somebody said that I'm not dead yet
because God still thinks I'm funny. Well, how long can that last?

Gerald, put all your important papers and stuff in a metal box and put that
box in your bus and get up here before I pass away. If a wall of forest fire
comes at you, exactly what are you planning to do? Piss on it? It won't
help. You can be down there all running around with your beard on fire, or
you can come up here and have a whiskey and watch it on TV.

P.S. I do know that the drought and fire danger is serious, but I still have
to make fun. I have had flooding and water damage downstairs

Not sure if I'll make it. Only part of it is lack of fuel funds. 

The bigger part is the fact that we are having a California/Colorado
fire season in SouthEast Texas. Aerial fireworks sales have been
banned. But we live within spitting distance of the Louisiana state
line and I'm just not real comfortable with the idea of being away
while rednecks with fireworks run loose in the tinderbox around my

There was a 50 or 60 acre burn less than 10 miles from my house last
weekend. Over the past 3 months we have lost several thousand acres
within 100 mile radius of where I live. They had to close a major
highway about 15 miles away when the flames got next to it and went
over 100 feet into the air.

Weather guessers are calling for decent rain next week. So far this
year "decent rain" has only been 10 minute knock-shit-down hard
thunderstorms or 3 or 4 hours of "drizzle-so-slow-you-can-smoke-outside"
crap that just doesn't count. We need at least a full day or two of
"who-left-the-shower-running" rain. Medium drops coming down hard
enough to get stuff wet but not so hard you can see them bouncing back
off the ground 6".

Somebody needs to put a big ass overflow pipe due south from South
Dakota down into the lakes that make up the Sabine/Neches river basin
system. Send some of that stuff a little further west to help us out
and keep Iowa, Nebraska, and Missouri a bit less wet.
