    expansion plans have taken on a life all their own at the fenotee state park just east of the capitol city…. tom has contracted the services of hoss canabee to build the largest privately owned swimming pool west of the mississippi .. in the shadow of the waldorf high-rise…

   forty five mexican laborers and a single square headed pool designer are currently digging a hole unmatched in size and depth since the bombing of nagasaki…right outside the kitchen window of the fenotee-hilton… it’ll take two weeks to fill it up with the cast-iron red water from his hundred foot well ….

    to quote my ol’pal and mentor , bill magee….” anyone that ever moves to montague county is here for life… cause they’ll never have the price of a bus ticket outa this forsaken place “…  that proverb takes on a slight twist in the case of tommy o’neal…

    he’ll be at the state park for the rest of his natural life ! cause all the hunt brothers and bill gates could’nt partner up for enough cash to get a clear bill of sale on that sixty acre theme park……

     ross perot was seen in a u-haul truck over the week-end… headed north on interstate thirty-five…  preliminary reports indicate he is tired of being financially humiliated by a montague county farmer’s son…. he’s moving his complete operation to idaho……

    approximately twenty five workers , gold-brickers , advisers , slackers and special colorado guests gathered at ed’s place on saturday for the traditional italian hog-killin…. ordinarily hogs are processed during the winter months in the interest of preserving the integrity of the meat….but procrastination lives on in montague ….

    however ,  integrity was in short supply as temperatures hovered and tempers soared… i witnessed even-tempered ed takin a verbally accurate character description from a red headed woman who had been falsely accused of misappropriations of pork…

    five hundred pounds of pig was processed through tom’s electric sausage stuffer while anvil headed traditionalists cranked just fifty pounds through the old hand-cranked family heir loom.   it was the old way vs. tom’s way… and despite several unsightly blowouts by the automated stuffer , tom finished first…..

   admittedly tom was faster but ed’s sausage was more uniform in size and definitely displayed a more appetizing appearance. all the ruptured sausage intrels went to minnie hanna in exchange for twenty five pounds of italian rice….

    little danny took the brunt of the fraudulant sausage deal … he paid more than his share for a box of sausage that was weighed out on a set of feed-mill scales , as ed stood with one foot resting on the edge of the scale…. poor danny boy !! paid for fifty pounds… got forty …..even a fenoglio can be fenoglioed by a more aggressive fenoglio !

    fresh pork loin and ribs were served for lunch along with several other italian staples like garlic potatoes and garlic cottage-cheese and garlic bread and garlic pie… just kidding about the pie but it may as well had garlic cause that’s all you could taste or smell by that time….

    dinasauer back-bones were the main entree at sunday night supper club… but most patrons declined…. just too much work !  eight ounces of meat on thirty-five pounds of bones…. 

         i’m beginning to understand better about the procrastination of the event…

enron and uncle earnest

  there is an oil industry promotion currently underway in montague county that will dwarf any attempt by e.o.g. to be the leader in oil and gas production in north texas….

   uncle earnest veretti left a hundred acres of mineral rights to three hundred feniglio heirs… land baron tommy oneal is promoting this exploratory field to rich yankee investors as we speak… ( oklahoma bankers)..he will be the operator …and will utilize various members of the sunday night supper club as sub-contractors with minimal over-rides as incentives to bring the black gold to the surface….

   chipper invested heavily in a antique drilling rig three oil booms ago…bought the cast-iron spudder from frank wolsey and rayborn chokas….. and has been unsuccessful in turning a profit on the sale of this unit even at junk iron prices, to this very day…..

   the plan is to bring it out of mothballs to drill uncle earnest # 1 on the old veretti home place down noble road….

   ed , with his valid well diggers license will serve as the drilling superintendent as well as the day light driller…. grumpy ,with his years of experience in the wild cat fields of wyoming , will serve as evening tower driller…bill magee , in his 1946 hard-hat , will be in charge of morning tower operations…

   the judges daughter , ranger scott , strawberry roan, and beck henley along with other highly qualified personnel will work as rough-necks on each shift…

    my vast experience and knowledge of drilling fluids from the mid to late seventies will certainly qualify me as the mud-engineer…

   bill clay , with his formal education and business experience will serve us well as the geologists…however he does need a good second-hand jeep-box for looking at samples…

   henley will occupy the position of  “company man” , like an orchestra conductor he will be responsible for the day to day logistics of man and machinery and adult beverages….

    if the okie investors buy this package deal , and we can gain the co-operation of each member of the supper club , we stand to gain beer money and pocket change for each of the three hundred heirs plus ten gallons of cassin head drip gas for each member of the supper club…

    all we need to do now is figure out a way to get coy white in on this scam just in case some skilled roughneck meets an untimely demise during the drilling process….or a disgruntled investor brings a loaded gun to the location….

friends or foes

  hey , thanks to all who called , visited , or otherwise made inquiries concerning the stint installation and subsequent over nite stay at baylor plano… it was a virtual walk through meyer’s park compared to by-pass surgery or valve replacement…..

   this state of the art hospital is less than a year old and without a doubt.. is the nicest , roomiest place i’ve ever stayed in… we’re talking large flat screen t.v.’s in every room…. room service… and large enough to accommodate up to ten visitors at once….

   i got back home late tuesday afternoon and am currently undergoing extensive rehabilitation on the divan….will most likely return to the salt-mine on monday….

   thanks again for all the prayers and well-wishes from some of the finest folks this side of belcherville…. i’m doing great….

 arrived back home today , after staying at baylor plano monday and monday night…. dr. brown .. no relation to dr. black… installed four stints while inflicting minimal pain in the (neighborhood..)

    big jim and the twins received massive amounts of exposure from every nurse or trainee that happened by.. regular side-show attraction…after that half-hearted hair-cut and shave… does the term privacy mean nothing to these voyeuristic veterinarians …

   if i had not been an exibitionists to start with , i surely would have been converted by all the feminine sight see’ers….

   for tour booking information and dates, please contact  my booking agent…. ed fenoteeee.. call early to beat the crowd !

     this coming sunday is probably the most important holiday celebration for christians throughout the world , even moreso than christmas … without the resurection there would be no Savior… no forgiveness of sin… no mediator between God and man… no eternal life… no hope !

      it’s my sincere wish that each of you will spend easter attending the church of your choice with family and loved ones….giving thanks for the life ,death , and the resurection of Jesus .. the living Son of the only capitol ‘G’ God there has ever been or ever will be !

    remember that His life was not taken from Him , He voluntarily lay it down for the remission of sins of each of us… then on the third day rose again to serve as our  salvation… ( no man can even approach the thrown of the Father except through Him )

   if any one of you have never surrendered your life to Him , today can be the day of salvation…. get down your grandmother’s family bible… read john 3:16… ponder on what it has to say …. it’s a promise from God to man.. every man…including you and me…

    on the outside possibility that your granny didn’t have a bible or your little sister got it after her death… here it is as best i can remember…

   for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son , that (who so ever ) believes in Him , shall not perish , but have ever lasting life…

   that’s pretty simple… pretty straight forward… pretty super fantastic promise… so why would any living human with a third grade education turn down an offer with everlasting  benefits and or consequenses…?
