  1. Storming in Cypress/Tomball area right now.
  2. An elderly wife from Montana had an appointment with her doctor to ask for advice on how to treat her husband’s lack of sex drive. “Have you tried Viagra?” the doctor asked. “Not a chance,” the old lady replied, “he doesn’t even take aspirin.” “Not a problem,” the doctor replied, “just give him some Montana Viagra.” “What’s Montana Viagra?” “It’s simple. You discretely put the Viagra into his coffee when he’s not looking. He won’t be able to taste it. Try it out and get back to me in a week and tell me about the results.” A week later, the old lady called the doctor. “Oh my lord!” she wailed, “Terrible! Just terrible.” “Really? What happened?” the doctor replied. “I did as you told me, I put the pill into the coffee, and the effect was immediate… he flew up from the chair, and his eyes were positively smoldering. With a quick motion he swept all the cups and the tablecloth from the table, ripped my clothes off and took me then and there on the table. It was a nightmare I tell you, a nightmare.” “Oh, I see, but why was it so bad, shouldn’t this be a good thing?” the doctor asked in a worried tone. “Oh yes, this was the best thing to happen to me in 25 years! But I can tell you right now, I will never be able to show my face in the downtown Starbucks again!”

  9. The loss of Boots was longer than I thought, time moves way too fast. A Boots writeup: Former LSU track coach Boots Garland dead at 82 Updated on Jan 11, 2016 at 03:47 PM CST Boots Garland was head coach of LSU track for one season and an assistant for 10. (LSU Sports Information | LSUsports.net) By Jim Kleinpeter Murrell "Boots" Garland, a former LSU track coach and renowned speed coach, died Monday in Baton Rouge. He was 82. The Haughton, La., native was head coach at LSU in 1982 and spent 10 years as an assistant under three coaches. But he was perhaps best known for his personality and wit, which made him friend of all he encountered. he was a close friend of LSU Heisman Trophy winner Billy Cannon. His folksy ways helped land him a key role in a movie about the early life of the late LSU icon and basketball star Pete Maravich, "The Pistol: Birth of a Legend". Garland naturally played the role of a coach. "He loved life and he loved people," said former LSU basketball coach Dale Brown. "He was the kind of guy that if he had leprosy and cancer at the same time and you knew about it and said 'How are you doing today?' He's say 'Fantastic! Isn't this a beautiful day?' Even if he was having a bad day he would find a way to make you laugh." "He was very knowledgeable in what he did. He made an art out of it." Garland was known on the high school circuit as a coach and a basketball referee. He spent time at Bossier, Istrouma, University, Baton Rouge, Baker and Parkview Baptist high Schools. He guided Baton Rouge High School to the Class 3A state track title, at the time the state' highest classification. He also worked in numerous sports, including baseball, as a speed coach for pro teams such as the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Dodgers. He was a spring training roommate of former Dodgers manager Tom Lasorda, with whom he had a lasting friendship. When Lasorda would come to the annual Kids baseball Clinic in Baton Rouge, they would trade wisecracks. Garland once said "For today's conditioning workout, we're going to run laps around Lasorda." Funeral arrangements are pending. ************** Jim Kleinpeter can be reached atjkleinpeter@nola.com or 504.826.3405 Registration on or use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy © 2018 NOLA Media Group.

  10. Quick Cannon story. One night Billy gets a call from the wife of Boots Garland, and yes, we lost Boots somewhere around a year ago. Boots wife tells Billy, I think Boots is having a heart attack, he sweating, chest pains, etc. She says that Boots won't go to the ER. Billy drives over, tells Boots, were going to the ER or we're gonna have to fight. Boots says ok, I'm too tired to fight. Once in the ER as the nurse is getting vitals. The ER Dr asked Boots a few questions, " Do you drink?" Boots replies. "Every chance I get!" The Dr then asks," Do you smoke?" Boots said, "No I quit!" Then the Dr asked," How long have you been since you stopped smoking?" Boots reply, "About two hours, when I started getting these chest pains!"
  11. Yesterday was tough, as we were getting things together for the photo shoot, I got a text from a good friend, he told me Cannon had passed. I told Lee, you could see it hit him like a ton of bricks. But I knew sooner or later, someone would open up about it. I thought it was better before we got started into the photo shoot. Lee and Cannon ate lunch for years together. Cannon loved recruiting and followed it like no other. The year Brady James signed with LSU, Lee had an awards banquet at Hooters on College Dr. I was there with a number of my friends and relatives. Cannon walked in, saw two of my cousins at the table, asked if we had a seat for him, which we gladly allowed. My cousin were the best floor/tile men in Baton Rouge, Cannons wife only wanted those two men to do the tile work in Billys house. Billy would say, whatever she wants, send me the bill. That night during the awards ceremony, Billy told stories of his Pro days, had us at the table laughing so hard, he could have been a comedian in another life. Oh, by the way, Brady James got an award that night for the best Defense high school player in the state, while getting the award, at the podium, he gave his verbal to the Tigers. In the audience, was a coach from Michigan who was recruiting Brady at the time. He was all dressed in his Michigan sweats. Once Brady said his verbal to LSU, the coach, jumped to his feet and stormed out the door.
