Michael starts pining for North Texas.
December 17, 2010
I got them North Texas blues/ but you know I paid my dues…” Delbert McClinton said that. Dreaming this morning about North Texas, all heat and distance, dirt and rain. L.M. Kit Carson said that one. It ain’t nothin’ but true.
Roll ‘em Ryan Raiders, time to go STATE… all down, one to go. The oldest son of a friend of mine is going to STATE. That doesn’t come around very often, maybe but once in a life. I wish him well, whatever the outcome. I remember him when he was 11, and he was equally proud then of his ability to play center as he was to play Mozart on the cello. Less Mozart these days, more O line. Maybe Mozart is waiting in the wings.
No matter. He was a sweet kid then and he is a lovely young man now; you might say he is a daily growing. Roll ‘em Raiders, ain’t nothing to lose and everything to gain. You are already winners in the hearts and minds of the people who love you.
