A Week Until Christmas

The Astros are signing Michael Brantley. How many times has he been an All Star?

In the #TXHD145Special, Melissa Noriega is in. This is on her twitter handle:

Candidate for State Rep Dist. 145

From the oppo research department, #TXHD145Special candidate Christina Morales is the President/CEO/Funeral Director of Morales Funeral Home. Don’t even think about asking her about skeletons in her closet. Got it?

On a related note, today, Harris County Commissioners Court will canvass the results of the #TXSD6Special.

It is a week before Christmas and I really don’t have much to say. I did start my Christmas shopping yesterday including going online where I was promised delivery by Christmas Eve. I am keeping my fingers crossed on that one.

We all know that Christmas cards are a dying breed of sorts. I have received six this year. One from a MUD law firm, one from a political consultant, one from Garcia-Gamboa, one from my best friend, one from my nephew/godson, and one from former H-Town Mayor Bill and Andrea White. The one from the White’s is the first without their kids featured – just the two of them – aww.

Christmas cards with a request for donations don’t count as Christmas cards in my book – sorry.

In Baytown, a gallon of gas is $1.79. Good for the pocketbook, but bad for the H-Town economy, I guess.

How about this tweet:

Michael Brantley has been selected to three AL All Star teams of course.

Plus the guy doesn’t strike out much.

Nice news from The Yard, don’t you think?
