09 down 10 to go
You think Mike Leach was railroaded out of Lubbock? I bet there are a lot of little fat girlfriends who celebrated with a half gallon of Blue Bell. My guess for next coach of the Red Raiders is June Jones.
Williams Fears Romo, Coach Lost Confidence In Him. You think?
A Little News has been posting his top 20 moments for 2009. He posted #20 yesterday. Hop over and take a look, he has some outstanding sports shots, including this one, my favorite.
I hope everyone has a safe New Years Eve.

The wet stuff
The picture is from the rose bush in my front yard that needs to be cut back. Anyone want to come over and do some yard work?
There is talk that the University of Missouri would join the Big Ten if asked? Why? Big Ten is boring football and plodding slow basketball.
There are to many bowl games. Teams should not be rewarded for 6-6 records.
NFL Pro Bowl rosters were announced. Six Cowboys were named to the NFC squad. Michael wanted a seventh.
I attempted to get a press pass to this years Cotton Bowl. I didn't get one, but that doesn't mean I can't try again. Next attempt, credentials for MLB. Anyone have any good ideas about how a blogger can get credentials?
A cheese company will sponsor the blow up of Texas Stadium. There is a joke in there somewhere.

Red River Ruminations
Winter weather is expected in the area today. Maybe more snow?
You have until January 1st to see the Forney Light Show.
I am going to review my 2009 resolutions on Thursday and take a look back at the year. Like everyone else I will be making resolutions and goals for 2010 on Friday.
Saw Avatar Saturday night. It's a great movie, that lived up to the hype. I want to go back and see it in 3-D. Like Christina, I also saw some previews of movies that I want to see. My list includes Robin Hood, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, and Clash of the Titans.
Don't forget to vote for your favorite photo over to the right.
This is the Red River as we were crossing back into Texas.
My fantasy football season ended Sunday. I came in second place. Not bad, a month ago I was sitting in 9th place and not even in the playoffs.
Regular readers know I do not really care for the Cowboys, but I do like the UT Longhorns. Can someone please ask Roy Williams to please stop giving the hook'em horns sign after he scores? Now that Nick Folk is gone, Roy Williams is the biggest waste of space on the Cowboys roster.
If the Cowboys end up meeting the Vikings somewhere down the road in the playoffs I will be rooting for the Cowboys. No way I would ever root for Favre, no matter how great people say he is. Last year Favre had the Jets 8-3, they finished the season going 1-4. The Vikings started 10-1 this year, they are 1-3 in their last 4.
I was 10-6 on my NFL picks for the week. With one week to go, I am 156-84.

Slow time of year
This was taken April 21, 2002 with a HP Photosmart 318. I think they were cut off a rose bush in the yard.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas.

A nice first day of winter
I added a poll to the right with choices for Terrell Daily Photo of the year. Instead of posting my five favorite photos, I asked Brian to pick his favorites, then I picked five from his picks. Now its your turn to pick one of the five for my photo of the year. Click on each photo for the large version and vote for your favorite. This isn't a best technical photo, or most artistic photo, just which one you like the best. Have another picture thats your favorite, leave a comment. Check the Terrell Daily Photo Facebook page for other photos from the past year.
NFL picks for the week 9-7, season record 146-78.
I just barely won the Fantasy Football Semi-final thanks to Kevin Boss. One more game for all the marbles.
Christmas Day will be my 1000th post.

Ben Gill Park at night
CNN sent out breaking news Saturday night to announce the Cowboys defeated the Saints. It was breaking because the Saints hopes to go undefeated had ended. But, the Cowboys winning in December also deserves breaking news status.
This may come in handy for Nick Folk.
I need a little bit of help tonight to advance to my Fantasy Football Final.
Short week at work, in addition to having Christmas off, our employer has given Christmas Eve off.
Christmas day will post #1000 for Terrell Daily Photo.

Terrell can't shoot
Terrell can't defend
Terrell can't guard
Terrell can't rebound
Terrell can't win

Terrell never trailed

I don't know if speed was a factor in the deaths of three young girls in Terrell earlier this month. But this cant be good.
From the Terrell Tribune website:
According to Texas Department of Transportation documents, a speed study -required before a municipality can establish limits - was completed in June, yet Terrell city leaders say they did not receive the report until Monday.
Click through the link for the entire story, with additional information promised in Fridays print edition of the Tribune.

Politicians and parades
Below is Terrell Mayor Hal Richards. I think he represents our city well.
This is Rhonda Hughey, she is running for Kaufman County District Clerk. She had a float in the parade.
Below is Andrew Jordan, he works in the County Public Defenders office and could be Kaufman Countys next District Attorney.
I will get back to my regular posting tomorrow.

THS International Club
Best I can tell these all say Merry Christmas.
I will have a few of the floats that were in the parade up around 12:30.
My NFL picks for last week ended up 11-5, season record is 137-71.
This past weekend was also the first round of our fantasy football playoffs. I entered as seed #5 of 6 teams, but thanks to Frank Gore and Ray Rice I won. Next up semi-finals.
