I’m disappointed that I won’t get there in time to register to vote and vote against Robert Francis O'Rourke and cancel all of Brewha’s votes in general.

Whataburger is almost as over-rated as In-N-Out. Got one less than 2 miles away. Doubt I'll ever eat there. Chik-Fil-A is same distance. Herfing

Maybe I’ll take a look at Greatwood. Buy a couple of houses and turn them into rentals.

Once I figured out that you need to brine chicken in dill pickle juice overnight to 18 hours...deep fry with pecan oil...I have to be pretty desperate on the road to pop in and grab some. Love their business model, just they think an awful lot more about their food than I do. I don't think their fries are good either. Yeah, I said it.

Their fries are too soft. I tell them I want them well done... they'll do it for you. But yeah... soggy fries is no bueno. Love their shakes and I dip the fries in the chik-fil-a sauce. Mmmmm.

MACS the secret to Whataburger is the person doing the grill.
I've been to two, in the Austin area, one on one side of the highway and the other on the opposite side. It was like two different experiences.

I just voted for the last time in California. Voted against every incumbent. Voted against every judge. Voted against every proposition except two.

We have a proposition to legalize sports betting on Indian tribal land. Rich tribes get all the money.

We have a proposition to legal sports betting on line for Indian tribes. They say all the profits will go to big companies in New York and Boston and that Californians are suckers! And kids will be betting on their iPhones!

I voted yes for both the sports betting propositions which should produce a court fight if they both pass! We encourage children to cut off their wieners and boobs out here so why shouldn’t they be able to bet $10 of lunch money on the 49ers!

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California's coronavirus emergency will officially end in February, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Monday, nearly three years after the state's first confirmed death from the disease prompted a raft of restrictions that upended public life.

He issued 596 orders. Now California can return from the dictatorship to a Democrat supermajority!

In this state hazmat is:

Paint cans
Electronics
Used batteries
Some light bulbs
Gasoline
Household chemicals
Etc

At least it’s a free service as part of trash collection.

I’m not sure about meth labs. We might have decriminalized them.

SF to Bakersfield to Flagstaff to Santa Rosa NM to Abilene to Sugar Land.

The I-10 route was an hour quicker but a little harder spacing of wilderness when finding hotels. I also wanted to avoid El Paso in case Biden or Harris decided to visit the border.

Tank chilled in da back seat. Never made a sound. Got out to pee and poop when we did.

He's all settled in to his new home, now. I can tell because he'll bark when he's in the back yard and hears something, and he whines and runs to the door when the doorbell rings. lol
