Well, here goes my first attempt to put myself out there for the world to see and not look like a total git. Most of the random thoughts that will cross my mind would get me committed or at the very least given a strong case of the "hairy eyeball' by anyone who stumbles across these mad ramblings.
I am and will always be, quite mad, but I have kept it locked away for those who know me best to revel in. Now, I feel the urge to share it with the world. I sense that this is a good place to insert some back story for those of you new to my nightmare. I grew up in a town of less than 3000 people in Texas and was cursed with a brain. For anyone who has never lived in a small town in Texas let me explain why this is a bad circumstance. You see, the average IQ in my home town hovered around that of cro-magnon man, and oddly enough some of my school mates can list making fire under their greatest accomplishments. Enter me, who understood calculus and could speak in compound sentences and viola you have a recipe for frequent and repeated beating and oppression.
Now you understand a little better why there is a crowd here in my head. Long about the 8th grade I found another castaway or two there in my home town. Lawdog is a blogger here. He and his brother have been my best friends for going on 25 years. They helped me more than they can ever know. So, dear reader, if you hear something in my writing that smacks of LD's style, there is a very good reason for it. We are of a kind.
Please ignore the lack of style in the formatting of this somewhat weak attempt at prose. I am sure that it will improve as I get time to fiddle with this mess. That being said, I will wrap this up for now. Hope to get to know alot of you soon.
