Snoop Dogg Coming To Tyler In June

Snoop Dogg Coming To Tyler In June:

I've heard of April Fool's Day jokes, but 420 day jokes?  That or the Mayans were right about 2012.

The Painter

This gets my nod for great song of the evening.  Neil Young with "The Painter" from the Prairie Wind lp.  

"The Painter"

The painter stood 
Before her work 
She looked around every where 
She saw the pictures and she painted them 
She picked the colors from the air 

Green to green 
Red to red 
Yellow to yellow 
In the light 
Black to black 
When the evening comes 
Blue to blue 
In the night 

It's a long road 
Behind me 
It's a long road 

If you follow every dream 
You might get lost 
If you follow every dream 
You might 

She towed the line 
She held her end up 
She did the work of too many 
But in the end 
She fell down 
Before she got up again 

I keep my friends eternally 
We leave our tracks in the sound 
Some of them are with me now 
Some of them can't be found 

It's a long road behind me 
And I miss you now 

If you follow every dream 
You might get lost 
If you follow every dream 
You might

Lestage Family Photo - April 8, 2012

A very Lestage Easter.

If I should fall behind . . . .

This is one of the greatest love songs ever written.  Yes, it is the Boss and the ESB.  I like the group effort.

He was a great newsman.  They don't make them like this any more.  I have the greatest respect for his work.  Rest in peace, Mike Wallace.


I had a nice day with the family in Winnsboro, my hometown, for Easter.  We had a cookout at Mom's, and all of us kids were there.

Jill went to see her folks and brother in Kilgore.

I had a couple of good traveling companions.

Rangers lose their first game. You can't win them all. They'll get them tomorrow.

This is a great mellow album for a great mellow day.  Enjoy!

My dad.

This is one of my favorite photos of Pop.  This was taken on a trout fishing trip in Arkansas in 2002.

This was a really great movie.  Check it out if you haven't already.

A kinder, gentler blog?

I've decided to wipe my old blog out and start over.  Will it be kinder and gentler?  I don't know.  I'll just have to see where this goes.

I kind of have a love/hate relationship with the "social media." I have lost count of the number of times I have deactivated and reactivated my Facebook account.  I like Google Plus better than Facebook.  Google Plus doesn't seem to have caught on yet. Maybe it will.  Maybe it won't.  I'm cool with Twitter - all 140 characters at time.

I have no pretensions that anyone will actually read this blog.  It is cheaper than therapy; although, I don't plan on making this a confessional.  I'll just have to see where this goes.

In the beginning . . .

Let's begin the begin.
