I don't know if it is the lack of rain, the over crowding, or just what the cause is...but it seems like the whole town is going bonkers!
I mean, what possible other reason could there be for something like this? As many years as I've been here in this cesspool of a city, I've never known things to be as crazy as they have been here lately! Straight from the pages of the Chronicle, folks!

Crime Stoppers and Harris County Sheriff's Office investigators are asking the public to help identify two suspects who last week robbed a store in the 12900 block of Aldine Westfield.
The suspects, one of whom wore yellow cartoon-character SpongeBob SquarePants pajama pants and held a high-powered assault rifle, demanded that two female employees give them cash from the registers and safe around 9:50 a.m. July 3, according to a Crime Stoppers news release.
The suspects, described as black men in their late teens to early 20s, got away with an undisclosed amount of money.
The one holding the assault rifle is also described as about 5-foot-6, weighing 200 to 220 pounds, with short hair and a light complexion. He wore a blue McDonald's work shirt with SpongeBob pants.
The other suspect is described as about 5-foot-4, weighing 140 to 150 pounds, with dreadlocks and dark complexion. He wore a white hooded shirt and black Jordan shorts and shoes.
According to the news release, the women feared they would be sexually assaulted because the suspects made sexual comments and one inappropriately touched one of the women.
Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information leading to the suspects' identification, charging or arrest. Call 713-222-8477 (TIPS), visit www.crime-stoppers.org or text TIP610 plus your tip to CRIMES (274637). Tipsters remain anonymous.
I just gotta get my old fat butt out of this city and back out to the safety of the country, or at least to the sanity of a small community!
Let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside on the patio. I don't think the crazies can see us out here, but you just never know!
