Yeah, Ozzy had been on my ***tlist ever since that time, many years ago, he was in San Antonio wandering around, drunk or high (or both), and got in trouble for taking a leak on one of the walls of the Alamo. After quite a few years, the city of San Antonio finally "forgave" him. I never will. To this day, I refuse to listen to any of his music, past or present.
I appreciate what you said about the people
Many years ago after having lived in the Dallas area for a very long time, I was going with a group of "my" scouts to Philmont in New Mexico for a backpacking trek. We over-nighted in Amarillo, and had a meal at the McDonald's near 45th and Western. A mural on the wall there did a really good job of summing up how I feel about my Panhandle home (Borger - about 48 miles NE of Amarillo):
It was one of those days when God was creating the earth. He was working on Texas as darkness fell at the end of the day, and He had to quit. He gave the Great Plains of West Texas a smoothing stroke and said to Himself, "In the morning I'll come back and make it pretty like the rest of the world, with lakes and streams and mountains and trees."
But the next morning when He returned, it had hardened like concrete overnight. As He thought about having to tear it all down and make it over, He had a happy thought: "I know what I'll do", He said, "I'll just make some people who like it this way."
And that is how it came about that the people who live in the Panhandle like it this way.
(reading it still gets to me)
I like the geography in California too, especially to the north of San Francisco. A buddy of mine has a catering business in Rohnert Park, lives in Petaluma --- best potato salad in the known universe.
