Valentine's Day is Over, Time to Get Serious

Now that we have the holiday out of the way, it is time to start thinking about a few things. I'm sure people up north are thinking about the snow. I just can't imagine that much snow. Around here there are two major topics of discussion warming up the days and nights. Spring training for the Astros and what will the Texans do with David Carr. I saw a bit of an interview with Andy Pettitte, traitor, I mean former Astro. He was excited to be back with the Yankees. So much for the hometown connection. At least with spring training starting, can the season be far behind? I, like every one else wonder about Roger. I think he'll be back. The question is if he will be any benefit to the team. Half a season is not really going to make much difference. After all there is an old saying about dancing with the one who brought you to the dance. If we get lucky and the young guys step up and out of the shadows of the likes of Clemens, Bagwell and Biggio, we might not need him and he can retire, again.

What to do with David Carr is another story. There don't seem to be a lot of good quarterbacks entering the draft. The Texans higher ups are now hedging their bets on Carr. Some say that with the right line he could be a good but not great quarterback. Others say he doesn't have the heart. So Bob McNair and company will have some tough decisions come draft time. Do they look for someone to help the offensive line and give Carr a chance, or give up and look for a stopgap like Jake Plummer until they can find and groom a new QB. Only time will tell. Somebody better tell David not to hold his breath.

The Rockets are actually doing rather well even without Yao. I don't care much for basketball but I have been to a couple of games. Some people think the baseball season is too long. Basketball seems to go on forever to me.

The next thing to get serious about is cleaning out our old storage building so that we can save $150 a month. That is going to be about as easy as pulling a mammoth out of the La Brea Tar Pits. Motivation is the key and I think someone lost that key.

Then when it gets closer to spring planting season, I want to clean out all the airplane plants that are in the front of our part of the building. I wonder who was the nut job that thought they would make a great border? The Texas- Mexico border should be that tight. They are really thick.

Well it's time to get serious and fold the laundry. Somethings just never end.

Goodness, you are a sports fan? I have never been able to "get" sports at all!

I was wondering about the there still a stand off or has someone won this one already? You'll have to update us on that.

Responding to your comment over on The Cedar Chest, yes, if it isn't the snow they are "covering" (God forbid they find another bone to chew!) they are covering the whole Anna Nicole thing. I actually just posted my thoughts on that a few minutes ago. I am probably not in the majority on my views on this subject, but I don't care, it is my blog and I get to say what I

Have a great rest of the week!

Yup, I am a sports fan, I admit it.

The garbage is still a isue. The lady next door said she was going to call her landlord.

One of the neighbors in my building put a sticker indicating her unit number on her garbage can. He's got picked up. I might try that. Hey at $15 a month, it adds up having to pay for it.
