Compleat Redneck

Commentary from the boondocks. If it makes any sense, it is just by chance.

Cletus says he is happy to see the rain but not so happy about the forecast of snow tonight. He has seen snow a couple of times and that is enough to last him forever unless he ends up where Bubba says he is likely going in which case snow would be welcome.

Well Cletus' first try at linking didn't work so good. I suppose we'll just have to keep at it.

Cletus says he has learned that the preferred term is "climate change" not "global warming". He says he thinks that is to avoid the problems Al Gore runs into giving "global warming" speeches during blizzards.

Don't get us wrong, we have no idea if there is "climate change" or "global warming" nor do we know a lot about anything scientific other than the best place to fish, but we suspect we know as much as Al does considering we seem to remember he barely made it through college and don't ever remember anything about him being a scientist of any sort.

I think that was a "ramble" or maybe one of those diversions from the subject not that keeping to the subject has ever mattered to us.

Cletus says he is going to practice up on doing links again. We have about given up on being "thinkers" and are moving to being "linkers" if'n we can figger it out.

The Emporium crowd is torn over Global Warming. On the one hand, we are thrilled with it being warm in January and on the other...we are thrilled with it being warm in January. I guess we aren't so torn over warming. Bubba says the last three summers have been about the best in his memory not too hot and a decent amount of rain. The pasturage was good and there was plenty of hay to put up for his cattle and he didn't really need it. In fact, one of his neighbors gave him 40 acres of hay just for the cutting. Bubba says he has so much hay, he's thinking of going into the hay business.

One of the rocket scientists said that he figured Bubba was well enough off that he didn't need to get into any other business. Seems the sceintist was in DC recently and went out to the Ruth Chris Steakhouse where he paid $50.00 for a steak and didn't even get a baked potato. From that he figures anyone with cattle is well off. Bubba said he would happily sell steaks for that price and he'd throw in the potato and maybe even a nice tossed salad. Cletus said for that price he could probably toss a free range porkchop into the deal.

I told the scientist that if I had known he was willing to pay such prices I would have had a special menu printed up just for him. He left saying he thought we had missed his point entirely.
