Ernest Nunley-One Fat Cowboy ::

I got this from an anonymous poster earlier today:

Ernest is fine. He was in Walker Louisiana last night and heading into Baton Rouge today. Thanks to all well wishers. I hope others post his sightings.

Here's my earlier post before Ernest's heart attack. The post should explain Ernest's quest.

Tuesday Stuff! ::

Ron Sparks today did exactly what I expected him to do and announced that he will remain in the Alabama governor's race. I thought before his announcement that this would be the correct move for him especially since he doesn't live in the 5th district. The republicans in the race would have pounded him on this alone and Sparks would have started out in a hole. Sparks has statewide name recognition and that will only improve with his campaign for governor.

That being said, I am still on the fence with who I plan to support in the governor's race.

I had a bite to eat this evening at the Bandito Burrito on South Parkway and listened to Marge Loveday play and sing for a while. If you get a chance to see her at any of the local music venues, I highly recommend that you do.

Parker Griffith Turns Tail ::

and runs from those who elected him! I can't say that I'm surprised and I really think that he has painted himself into a corner given that he will probably face to repubs in the primary. Now we have to find a credible Democrat to make the run although time is already short.

I hope that everyone who gave some bucks to Griffith asks for them back. I donated some time to his campaign so I'm out that, but at least it was an eye opening experience!

Light Rain Falling ::

Maybe it's beginning to taper off soon. The road I live on runs alongside the Paint Rock River for a bit before deadending at a private farm, but the river is higher than I have ever seen it and one owner of a get-away trailer is lucky it didn't get any flood damage. Actually he may be lucky that it hasn't floated down the river!

Alabama vs. Florida ::

Today is the big day which will probably determine the national college football championship for 2009. I normally don't care at all about football, but I have been following Alabama closely this year and I'm looking forward to a great game later this afternoon.
