See this? T is for Tacos in Texas! That's where the real Grease is and not just
in the tacos! Want to talk about politics? Didn't think so!

And from my good friend in Mumbai!
After oil spills by BP in the Gulf coast, this is the latest style of oil prospecting. Collecting grease lumps on the Gulf Coast beaches.

Hahaha :D, Sylvia, I had tacos in mind, too, the full-fat kind. My mama always said not to talk politics or religion at the dinner table. good one. Have a wonderful week. Thanks for all you do!

Peggy said...

This is soooooo funny. I'm still laughing.
Thanks for your wonderful comments throughout the year my friend. You are so sweet to me!
Hope you have a healthy and happy 2011~

This has me laughing, too. Just thinking of the grease ball politicians who have emerged from that big state!

HAPPY NEW YEAR SLYVIA !!!

I always wondered why our Jack-in-the-Box tacos are so greasey. Now I know, they are made special for Texas [I live north of Houston].

Our politics included George W. Bush as governor. He was in the oil business and owned the Texas Rangers baseball team. We have a saying, "If you don't own an oil well then buy one."

Oh Sylvia! This is too perfect! I love it! Especially about the grease in Texas politics.

Susan Fobes said...

I thought Texaco with the "T" but you're right-grease runs rampant elsewhere!

I started out on the tack you took. I am so glad I changed my mind. You did Texas politics well!

Mumbai's offering is brilliant. wish I had thought of it!

Grandma said...

SouthLakesMom said...

Texas politics are no different than anywhere else -- just bigger!

Love the allusions though!

Dianne said...

both of these are good :)

kaykuala said...

I enjoyed both. One thing, politics sure can lead many astray!

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Both are very good. Grease and politics are natural partners, aren't they?

Ms.Daisy said...

Love tacos and I try not to think of the grease too much! Both good MM's today!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
