We were in Grapevine around lunch time today and Joe's Crab Shack happened to be right in front of us when we decided to eat. What a difference a decade makes. The place looks exactly the same but there has been a severe falloff in business. Back in the day there was often a wait for lunch if you got there a little after noon. Today there were maybe a dozen customers in the place. The food was fine and the beer was cold. Wonder how they do for happy hour and dinner? That used to be SRO too.
It's a sad day for sarcasm and political humor. The last Colbert Report airs tonight on Comedy Central. We'll have to wait until sometime after May 2015 for Stephen to reappear as the host of The Late Show. The Colbert Report has been must view TV at my place for years. It will be missed.
Time for a Christmas #TBT. Here is Matt all dressed up for his first Christmas. This was 1992 and young Santa was six months old. Unfortunately there is an old bald elf in the pictures too.
Has anybody in North Texas seen the sun lately. I'm feeling a little low on vitamin D.
We're getting closer -
More proof that geography is not a strong point of college athletics. In the new 12 team AAC conference alignment Cincinnati is in the East division and Navy is in the West.
Another sad day in the comedy world. Last night (12/18) was the final Colbert Report and tonight (12/19) is the last Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. It's been a fun ten years. Goodbye to Craig, Geoff and Secretariat. You guys made me laugh and cry many nights. Thanks.
For the last few days Encore Western has been promoting that starting in January they will be broadcasting "Death Valley Days". They are also going to air "Wanted Dead or Alive". I remember having a 20 Mule Team model when I was a kid. It was a bear to put together. Looking forward to seeing the old episodes.
It's the final #SongSunday before Christmas so here is my favorite holiday song. I'm not alone in thinking this is the best Yuletide song by the best singer. The song was written in 1944 and has been covered by numerous singers. The best singer, Nat King Cole, recorded it four times. Here is the iconic rendition of The Christmas Song.
