    true

    The Louisiana State Police received reports of illegal cock fights being

    held in the area around LaFayette, and duly dispatched the infamous
    detective Desormeaux to investigate. He reported to his sergeant the
    next morning.
    "Dey is tree main groups in dis cock fightin'" he began.
    "Good work. Who are they?" the sergeant asked.
    Desormeaux replied confidently, "De Aggies, de Cajuns, and de Mafia."
    Puzzled, the sergeant asked, "How did you find that out in one night?"
    "Well," he replied, "I went down and done seen dat cock fight. I knowed

    the Aggies was involved when a duck was entered in the fight."
    The sergeant nodded, "I'll buy that. But what about the others?"
    Desmoreaux intoned knowingly, "Well, I knowed de Cajuns was involved
    when summ body bet on de duck."
    "Ah," sighed the sergeant, "And how did you deduce the Mafia was
    involved?"
    De duck won."

    • Hey Rhaw,

      I've been lurking, just haven't had much to say lately. Still keeping my finger on the Alberta petrochemical pulse, albeit a very weak pulse as of late. Lots of ballyhoo in the Edmonton and Calgary papers about the upcoming doom in the petrochemical sector. I remember you and me posting about this stuff two years ago! The latest scheme is to extract ethane from all of the heavy oil projects that are being built to replace the ethane that Alliance pipelines is sending down south. I can't see this flying unless the big oil companies can make some big bucks off of it.

      Recently Peter Lougheed has put his two cents in the debate more or less saying he opposes the current gov'ts position (or lack of one) on the petrochemical industry. You would vividly remember how Lougheed basically got the whole Alberta petrochemical industry off the ground and running. It sure is sad to see it in the state it is now.

      Thanks Ralph, thanks a lot, you've sure been a big help. The cattle industry is only a chip in the big poker game called politics for Ralph, exactly what has he done other than promote himself? Oh yeah, thanks for tripling our utility bills as well. I can't say anything good about Cretin either but Klein has got to go too, enough damage done by both dem fools!

    • Hey rooster and prentiss,

      Good to hear from you rooster. Where you been? Fighten forest fires at Blairmore and Hillcrest, or helping Ralph bar-b-cue beef at the Toronto Downsview SARS extravaganza?

      Got to hand it to Ralph, he's out there trying move Alberta beef and trying to pry away some of my money from Bombadiere to put out Alberta forest fires. Compared to Crutchin, Ralph is a Saint.

      Prentiss, if you are going to keep an eye out for my ole swimmin hole (aka the 5B for Boys, Bare, Ball, Bathing, Beach), you must be coming from the Hardisty / LLoydminister area to get to Camrose? Just before you get to Daysland, keep an eye out for youngsters doing the 'moon-rise' and 'setting-the-bottle-on-the-table' as you drive by. We used to put on quite a show for the travellers ... those of us who had something to show, that is.

      So, Prentiss, you've messed around with the MOD, eh? I go way back in this arguement ... all the way back to the Cubicle 3 at Sarnia / Midland. Every so often this board relives all the old arguments and it's like travelling down memory lane ... sigh ... (BTW, I'm with ODH on the Honeywell (TDC 3000)).

    • Hey,

      Another Albertan on this message board, good stuff. We probably have more in common than we both care to admit including Prentiss. Rhaw is a good old sort, when I've talked to him we've agreed on many subjects. Hey Rhaw remember my rantings on Ralph Klein and AuxSable? You know, I'm getting the feeling more Albertans are starting to see the light on Ralph and his bunglings...but I might just have a case of wishful thinking too!

    • Hey, I won good money on that duck! He belongs to a Classmate (TAMU '73) of mine. Any rumors of genetic modification are strictly that - rumors.

      "Fang" goes against a 'gator on Bayou Teche next. Due to legal concerns the exact location is classified.

      • Hey ODH,

        Here is a true dog story for you from the 40s.

        When you are raised in a small Alberta town, pop 550, radio only, no TV, Sat night only movies, you are left to your own ingenuity for entertainment. In my crowd of 10 - 12 year olds, everyone had a dog. When we went on 'outings' along the railroad tracks that ran parallel to the highway, we naturally took our dogs. I had a French dalmation, a miniture of the English dalmation. He was a horny dog. Everytime he would smell the leg of a French Canadian traveller that passed through the town, he would get an erection and he would proceed to try and hump the visitor's leg. This is a common thing with some breeds, as I am sure all dog lovers will recognize.

        This talent led us 'boys' to invent a race known only to us as "The Sheep Tracks Dog Races." On a Sat. morning, we would all head out the tracks to our favorite spot and hold 'Dog Races'. This involved lining up our dogs in a neutral state and at the word go, all owners would proceed to 'Jack-off' their dogs. The first one to cum would win 25 cents per dog as the bet. My dog 'Sarge' was a clear winner almost everytime. I'd win $2 a wack compared to delivering groceries for a week at $5/wk.

        One day as the boat races were in progress, eight dogs were in mid-non stop-action when my grade 5 school teacher drove by with her new fiancee. They stopped, their mouths dropped 2 feet at the sight, and they drove off. Next school day, Miss Brundage called us 'boys' to her desk and asked us what the hell we were doing? My response was an embarassing "Do you really want to know?" She paused, thought about it and when she realized our dilema, she returned us to our seats. That was the end of "The Sheep Tracks Dog Races".

        Rhaw
