Billy Joe Shaver Just Found Not Guilty! Yeah!

Kinky just called. He told me the great news that the jury has just found our good friend Billy Joe Shaver—Not Guilty!  We are thrilled with the verdict! We love you, Billy Joe and we are so happy for you!

Tonight's blog is going to be very short because I am pooped because I spent much of my morning returning phone calls from concerned friends who received that ridiculous and fraudulent bogus e-mail about me being in England and desperately needing money. All I have to say is thank y'all for caring and  for those mean spirited people, in that organization over in Africa behind this spam-scan—y'all can go straight to you-know-where.

 Today I walked eight miles and am quickly catching up to my monthly quota of five miles per day. I want to thank Lisa, Meghann and Jim for coming out this morning to help Tony and to walk our dogs. Y'all Rock!

This afternoon Tony and I went over to visit our new-found friends Tom and Barbara Carpenter at their ranch and we had a blast. They are so cool! I wish that y'all could meet them because they are two of the nicest, interesting and down-to-earth people left on our planet.

Late this afternoon I went over to the Lodge to visit with Kink and I stayed nearly two hours because Kinky was receiving updates every fifteen minutes or so about Billy Joe's trial from a friend who was at the Court House. We talked about my new book which should be out within the next ten days, Billy Joe's trial, last night's Kinky Friedman Cigar Store Grand Opening at Republic Harley-Davidson in Stafford, Texas  and Marcie's visit in May.

Ellen Cooper just called me and we had a fun visit even though she and Charlie teased me relentlessly about me supposedly being in England. Fortunately, I am finally starting to laugh about the fraudulent spam-scan but I still have a lot of work to do to repair the damages done to my address book. I think that I am going to change my e-mail address and passwords real soon so I can hopefully prevent this from ever happening again.

Tone and I are fixin' to go into Outer Space for Happy Hour. Cheers!

Y'all have a great evening!

Hmmm. "from a friend who was at the courthouse". Could that have been Willie? I'm here in Temple for a 3 day trial in Belton and the Billy Joe Shaver trial is THE big news on the local television channels!Just as exciting for the anchor people as the actual tribe are the celebrities rallying behind Mr. Shaver and they sure mention (and show) Willie!

Correction to previous email (geesh but my typing is horrible when using my laptop's keyboard): the word is "trial" NOT "tribe".

Is my face red!
