Redneck Island and BS

Well, let me see, here. I got back from Mexico last week and after resting up a couple days, I hit the gym. Wow. Wake up call…While in Mexico I thought my training was going ok. All I had was a 3 station Universal Machine and dumbbells to 50 pounds. I worked out just about every day and indeed made chicken salad out of chicken shit. But there’s only so much you can do with the previously mentioned equipment. Prior to heading out for Mexico I was starting to get some half ass poundage on the bar for bench and standing military press. I was also doing lots of pull ups on a power rack. There wasn’t a damn thing to do a pull up on, and no barbell set or power rack, nothing to do military’s with. Well, suffice to say when you don’t do the movements you’ve been focusing on for a solid month, you go right back downhill. So I’m climbing back up hill and starting to get my pump back. Gonna be another week or two before I’m back in the groove. Diet is starting to fall back into place. Anyway, enough of that shit. I like Mexico a lot, but it’s good to be home. Especially now that deer season is right around the corner. I will be headed to Texas soon for an extended stay at the Broken Skull Ranch.
I’m very much looking forward to Saturday November 10, when at 9pm/8pm Central time, REDNECK ISLAND premieres on CMT. This seasons show is a lot of fun and if you enjoyed last season, you’ll really get a kick out of Season 2. If you missed Redneck Island last season, check it out! And FYI-You ain’t gotta be a Redneck to enjoy the show…It’s a helluva show with 14 wonderful folks battling it out for $100,000 bucks.
Now on to my recent list of things that crossed through the grey matter of my brain…
I don’t miss the flies in Mexico. We have flies in Los Angeles, but just not as many. That will soon change,though, as we have lots of flies in Texas. Here’s one for you-Have you ever been to the junkyard/landfill to throw out some trash, and when you got back in the truck you had a cab full of flies? And then you roll down your windows to get them out? Sometimes it takes a few tries to lose all the flies. (No I did not try to make that rhyme.) So when the flies are shooed out of the moving vehicle.. What do they do? Where do they go? Have they left loved ones behind? How is there sense of direction? Can they find their way home? They could be miles and miles from where they came..Are they like homing pigeons?? Homing flies…Could they be used to transport messages with little tiny notes tied to their legs? Will they become homesick? Will they ‘start all over’? I mean think about it, folks. Alright, don’t think about it…But these thoughts did pass through my head the last time I was in Texas at the BSR and a bunch of flies got in my truck at the junkyard.
Here’s another one for you…The scene-Any grocery store in the world. So happens today it was at Cosco. What’s the damn deal when people just haul off and park their damn shopping carts in the middle of the aisle?? Completely blocking the aisle. Hello? There’s other people shopping, folks. Kindly move your cart out of the aisle and next to the food racks so people can pass by. And also, when you’re pushing your cart on an aisle that leads to the MAIN aisles, the people on the MAIN aisles have the right of way. So don’t just haul ass through…And remember to look both ways. Here’s one more-Just because you have one of those long gimmick carts with your kid in the seat DOES NOT mean you have the right of way throughout the entire store. Follow the common sense rules of etiquette and right of way like everyone else. (Yeah I never figgered I’d be blogging about grocery store shopping cart etiquette, either)…
Moving on…Getting 4 new shocks for my truck on Friday. Yeah. It’s a 4 wheel drive Chevy Z-71. K&N air filter, BF Goodrich Radial All Terrain Tires, otherwise completely stock. Had to toss in some macho guy shit to even out the blog…

    Finally. Someone has laid out the laws of the land of grocery shopping.try going on a Sunday amongst the land of the church goers and soccer moms. Its like all bets are off. The one thing that ticks me off, and its mostly at grocery stores, is the people who take up 2 parking spaces. I can’t stand it. Ok…my rant is done. Very good blog Mr. Austin.

  8. Amy Larson says:

    I love your blog. I understand completely! Take care!

  9. Homer says:

    I think I might just apply for a million dollar government grant to study these flies.. maybe I could attach tiny gps tracking devices to them so their movement and migration patterns could be better understood, some tiny helmet cams could be nice too, just maybe I could get my own show on nat geo.

    wow nothing on C.M punk that shocking seeing in that Video you wanted to rip his head off with your bare heads. Anywho love those doggyies.

  11. Jimmy Arrans says:

    Never gave that much thought about flies but it a a great read. As a person who works for a grocery store I understand you completely. My biggest pet peeve is people who are just too damn lazy to take their shopping carts and put them in the shopping cart return corals, instead they leave them sitting around to hit peoples cars. Its called courtesy. Just sayin. But great blog.

    Man I’m a little upset I’ve typed out the application to be on redneck island 2 times and both times it said there was an error. Didn’t know if its happening to others or if my computer just sucks. Either way I’m gonna keep trying it. Maybe you could put in a good word brotha?
