Years ago I worked at a porn shop. I dealt with every kind of kinky sexual perv imaginable in real life face to face. Dealing with those kind of people here is Child’s Play to handling them in real world. The only people that can relate are ones that have work in some type of adult entertainment that deals with the general public. In every sexual preferences male or female young or old, you have one smart ass in the bunch.

Here you can just block and be done with it. It’s like swatting a gnat. Dealing with them in the real world is a whole different experience. When they walk in that door and you don’t know them you never know what to expect. They can end up being one of your best customers or one that finally hits a nerve, and you finally tell them to GET THE FUCK OUT! I didn’t care I was always ready if it got confrontational when someone didn’t know how to behave or pestering other customers.

If you’re worthy of respect you’ll get my undivided attention with that respect. If I don’t see you that way I’m not going to waste my time with you. If I like you I’ll tell you and why either in the reply back or by personal email.

THOUGHTS-VENTURES-TUNES-SEX was a way of life at that porn shop. It’s my way of life for my online enjoyment.

If I debate politics I do in real life with someone. If I make a political posting it will be a read only. Why? We don’t know each other well enough to get into those type of specific issues. We share more common interest in better things than a political debate online. My political postings are more intended for the open general public. Anything else I don’t mind you sharing your opinion. Positive or Negative as long as they’re constructive and friendly. If you’re Cool with that I know I am. My time here is for sharing common interests with other members. Peace and Love, Michael

Hey Everyone, Well I said I wouldn’t do as many song postings like I used to, but then you come across a song that you think is worthy of mentioning. Now if your familiar with Matt Mason and have heard E you’re ahead of me. I came across him through amazon prime just browsing through some country songs and E was a suggestion that popped up on the side pane.

I heard it, loved it, and bought it. Another one popped up with a familiar name that I’ve heard before, Ryan Bingham. We share the same hometown. All it took was that one time to listen to Jingle and Go and I was sold. This makes my first Ryan Bingham album.

Jingle and Go is one of those songs that just puts you in a good mood compared to Matt Mason’s E.. of a man getting mad as hell when he comes home and finds a Sancho has made his way with your woman in the bedroom, and a good story on what can happen to you for doing that. Two different styles of country music that I’m hoping you’ll enjoy!.

I’ve been busy this last week, my reason for not posting anything. Hopefully I can bust out one a day! We’ll see. If you want to listen to these two songs just copy and paste for the playlist down below, and you can check them out. Peace and Love Everyone! Mike Hastings

I got home from Wichita a couple days before I thought
Didn't recognize the truck parked in my drive

My boots hit the hardwood floor
Busted through the bedroom door

Guess I must've caught you by surprise
By the time he got his buckle on
I hit the safe and grabbed my gun

You were beggin' me with tears in your eyes
Screamin' "Baby, let him go! You don't want that on your soul."
I said, "A man is gonna die tonight."

I'm chasin' tail lights
Straight as the crow flies

Huntin' justice down a country road
I've got a shotgun, it's ridin' shotgun

And we're both fixin' to unload
Son, I know what you done

There's only one way to outrun me
You better pray your tank don't beat mine to E...

Just blew past the county line
The needle's pushin' ninety-five

I'm on you like a shadow move for move
All you see is my headlights

I see the whites in your eyes
That fear, mirrored in your rearview

Go ahead and ride the gas
Don't think that you're livin', man just 'cause you make it past Dead Man's Curve
Man, as far as I can tell we might both end up in hell
But you're sure as hell goin' first

I'm chasin' tail lights
Straight as the crow flies
Huntin' justice down a country road
I've got a shotgun, it's ridin' shotgun

And we're both fixin' to unload
Son, I know what you done

There's only one way to outrun me
You better pray your tank don't beat mine to E...

I'm chasin' tail lights
Straight as the crow flies

Huntin' justice down a country road
I've got a shotgun, it's ridin' shotgun

And we're both fixin' to unload
Son, I know what you done

There's only one way you can outrun me
You better pray your tank don't beat mine to E…

Matt Mason was born in Fairland, Indiana and attended Triton Central High School in Shelby County, Indiana. He grew up listening to traditional country music. He says he started playing guitar at age eleven, and from that time onward wanted to sing professionally.

He was 16 when he opened for the Charlie Daniels Band in western Massachusetts. Six months after graduating high school in 2004, he moved to Nashville to pursue his career, and found work as a session musician almost immediately. Within three weeks, he was performing in live shows.

Bingham was born in Hobbs, New Mexico. His family relocated to the Midland/Odessa area of West Texas, before eventually moving to Houston. He attended high school primarily in Houston, Texas, at Westfield High School.
Bingham's mother purchased his first guitar when he was 16-years-old.

Although he was fascinated by music, he left his guitar dormant in his closet. Roughly a year later, Bingham hitchhiked back west to Laredo in hopes of landing a job with his Dad, carrying the guitar with him on the trip. Bingham's father enjoyed having neighbors over on their porch to drink beer, and one of them taught him a classical Mariachi song called "La Malaguena" in segments. Though he loved playing the song, it was the only one he would learn during his time in Laredo.

He relocated to Stephenville, Texas. There, he began learning more music while also riding on the rodeo team at Tarleton State University. It was in Stephenville that he would wrote arguably his most well-known hit "Southside Of Heaven" in a trailer house. He also began to play local gigs there, namely a local golf course and a few small bars.

While in Stephenville, Bingham had a friend that caught wind of a job in Paris, France with the "Wild West Show" at the Disney resort. He bought a one-way ticket with $100 in his pocket. Upon arrival, he was informed that the manager he had a mutual friend with was no longer with the company, and he found himself stranded with his guitar and old riggin' bag from his rodeo days. Luckily, he found some friends-of-friends within the Disney programs, and began playing music in local parks for tips.

Eventually he saved enough money to get back to Texas, and moved in with a rodeo buddy near Fort Worth. His friend had a brother (Matthew "Papa" Smith) that cut hair during the day, and played drums as a hobby. After an introduction and impromptu gig at an empty bar in Fort Worth, he and Papa would go on to be the founding members of Ryan Bingham and the Dead Horses. Marc Ford of the Black Crowes was one of the few people in the bar that night. He approached Ryan after the gig with an offer to record an album.

Hey everyone,

My FWB TJ has a birthday coming soon in July. You might think July that’s not soon. Oh, it is for me. I don’t know about you guys but my days go fast. Before I know it another weekend. So while TJ is out working his sales region. He will be back here the end of June and stay till the end of August.

This last Christmas I got him the boots, so you know what comes next with that is the Cowboy Hat. Now out in my area there are still many cowboys who take hat business serious.

There are some people that also have some hang ups about hats. For example a friend of mine warned me it’s cool if you wear a hat around my dad just don’t ever wear a black one is the only rule. Oh Yea, believe me that’s one man I don’t want to get into it with over a hat. Successful businessman, alcoholic, and don’t like black hats. I never found out why other than the black hat tends to be worn bad the bad men in movies. Hell I don’t know. I just made sure I never had a black hat with me going over there.

So when I decided to get TJ a hat I found this written by Lynda Sanchez in Truwest I thought you might enjoy reading about how men should properly wear a hat. With the great source of TRUWEST MAGAZINE and the thoughts of Lynda A. Sanchez is

COWBOY HAT ETIQUETTE: A survival guide for city folks who may not know the rules.

Before we get to the Boy’s Club Rules, Lynda A. Sánchez, a third-generation rancher, weighs in with her thoughts on how women have made manners gentler and frontier living more polite.

“Women have always made a difference, unless you are some tough wannabe bushwacker or a back-shooter. Let’s face it, men, by themselves, can be slobs in all kinds of ways: hygiene, clothing style, sloppy mannerisms, bad table manners, leaving the toilet seat up. The presence of women usually causes them to change their ways for the better.

“I was always taught that real cowboys tipped their hats to a lady or female. My husband does that, as do most of the old-timers. I was taught that you take off your hat or cap in a home, church, restaurant or theater. In a public building, you can keep it on, but if you go into a courtroom, you better take it off, otherwise the judge will nail you.

“When I taught school, the boys had to take off their hats or caps. In other classrooms, the teachers didn’t care. If a kid entered my room and forgot my rule, all I had to do was point to my head, and the hat was swept off and placed out of sight. Some individuals either have no manners or they don’t understand hat etiquette.

“We have gotten away from a lot of the politeness we used to have, thus many of our rules have little meaning, except in enclaves here and there. Fewer people wear hats now. Oh, and by the way, you better not mess with my husband’s hat. That is still a no-no. A man who wears a Stetson treats it like gold, and so should the rest of the world!”

Hat Rule #1: Do not touch my hat

Let’s get this straight: a cowboy hat is not a toy. It is not okay to touch a cowboy’s hat, or put on a stray cowboy hat lying around a bunkhouse or a truck stop. It is not okay to grab it off a cowboy’s head, and it is absolutely forbidden to say, as you reach out, “Gee, what’s that made of?”

Exception: A fiance may touch a cowboy’s hat once—on the honeymoon—but that’s it. Also, a grandchild may do whatever they want to a cowboy hat, short of sleeping in it. It is, after all, just a hat. I know that doesn’t seem fair, but that’s just the deal.

Hat Rule #2: Do not wear your cowboy hat in mama’s house

There is no more disrespectful thing you can do, short of killing the family dog, than wearing your cowboy hat inside your mama’s house. This includes your friend’s mama’s house, as well. This even includes mamas from other nations. Moms are sacred and every cowboy knows it. Don’t do it.

EXCEPTION: You may wear your cowboy hat when you are forced to enter the house of your ex-wife’s mother. You know, the one who never thought you were good enough to marry her daughter. If you do, though, you must be prepared to fight your ex-wife, her mother and whoever is sleeping with the two sluts at the time of the entry. That’s a hard trade off, but it’s usually worth it.

Hat Rule #3: Tip your hat like you mean it

Don’t just flick the brim, remove it from your noggin so there is no confusion when you’re acknowledging a crowd in a parade or just a pretty girl on the boardwalk. But don’t be waving it around like some hillbilly shouting for help.

Doing The Half-Tip

When the National Anthem is playing, cowboys will often do a “half-tip” of the hat as these cowboys from Pie Town, New Mexico, are doing in the photo below from the 1940s.

Hat Rule #4: Wearing Hats Indoors is complicated

Many cowboys have been in the armed services where it was drilled in to them to take off their lid when they are indoors. This wasn’t true in the Old West where you see cowboys wearing hats in saloons and dining halls, but today is a different deal. When in doubt—off it.

EXCEPTION: In some parts of the country, if you enter a restaurant, it’s okay to wear your hat at the counter, but not in a booth. This can be dicey if you see someone you know at a table when you are sitting at the counter, with your hat on. If you approach your friend at the table you can say hi and keep your hat on, but if you sit down, the hat must come off. This is known as the “heading-towards-the-door” rule. It is perfectly acceptable to wear your hat, as you cross the dining room towards the door, but do not dilly dally, or the hat must come off.

EXCEPTION TO THE EXCEPTION: While everyone agrees the hat comes off in church, it is okay to wear your hat in Cowboy Church, but then it comes off for the Lord’s Prayer.

Hat Rule #5: The Dance Floor Dilemma

In the old days, cowboys wore their hats to dances and never took them off, especially while struttin’ around the dance floor. But, so many fights broke out when hats got bumped during dances that there are still places—mostly in Texas—where there is a hard and fast rule that you must take your hat off while dancing.

EXCEPTION: When a cowboy and a cowgirl are both wearing hats and it’s time for a grinder, it is considered appropriate to leave both hats with a baby-sitter back at the booth.

Hat Rule #6: Cowgirls Can Get Away With Murder

Most of the hat rules cowboys adhere to are not applicable to a pretty cowgirl.

EXCEPTION: Ha! There is no exception to this sexist and ridiculous rule.

Hat Rule #7: No Hats in Church, Except…

While almost everyone agrees that it’s mandatory that hats come off in church, there is an exception as it relates to a new phenomenon called “Cowboy Church.” In this fast growing church, cowboys are allowed to wear their hats at an indoor service, but they must take it off for the Lord’s Prayer.

Hat Rule #8: Beware of Hat Rules.

If a cowboy insists on you adhering to these hat rules, try and keep a wide berth. Who needs all these damn rules anyhow?
What do you think?

Special thanks to Truwest Magazine and Lynda Sanchez

So now that I decided on the hat I need to find out his head size. Ok so I already know one. Just Kidding! I’ll have to surprise him and take him to the local western shops and go from there. Hope you enjoyed. Mike Hastings.

Good Morning and a Happy Sunday to everyone. I thought I would get away from reality for today and go with some fictional Classic TV Drama. I enjoy the weekends watching TV series that I may have missed when they came out this one is no different. So if you were looking for something to read today you came to the right spot. Happy Reading.

In the media collection my brother left me it included the Complete Series of “The Fugitive” starring David Janssen. I was more familiar with the Harrison Ford Movie. When TJ was working intown we started watching the series starting on a friday evening and ended up doing a marathon for the whole weekend. Anyway I loved the suspense and yes the One Armed Man did look scary. I loved how it started in classic B/W and the last season as they would say in the beginning “The Fugitive IN COLOR”.

The set has all the information including air dates and I noticed they did something out of context of Series Finales The Final Episode “The Judgement” was a two part episode instead of being aired in the spring like all other shows have traditionally done the waited till the beginning of the fall season when the new seasons begin to air the final two part episode finale. “THE SHATTERED SILENCE” the second to last episode for season four aired 04/11/1967 “THE JUDGEMENT” part 1 and 2 aired 08/22/1967 and 08/29/1967. I found this small piece describing what I just said.

ABC made the unusual decision for the time to air the finale during the end of summer, when many Americans were vacationing. The first part, airing on August 22, 1967, attracted a good rating. But nothing compared the second part on August 29, which broke all records: a 72% share of homes and a projected audience of 78 million people. Yes, the freedom of David Janssen proved bigger than the earth-shattering appearance of the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show three years before.

OK, so TJ and I finish watching the series and he’s asking is there really a Stafford, Indiana in the United States? So I start looking and there is a Township of Stafford in Indiana so it does exist, but what I found first and really thru me a curveball after just finishing episode by episode was this alternative ending by Stephen Bowie. I have to admit if you’re familiar with the series this is a very creative alternative ending.

Since all the episodes were fresh in my mind this was a real twist to read. let me tell. So if there are any of you Fugitive fans out there you might enjoy the twist as much as I did. I’m also curious if anyone else ever came across it. This is just as convincing as the final episode that cleared him. I think it was very well written.

STAFFORD, IND. – Richard Kimble, the small-town pediatrician and death row fugitive whose first degree murder conviction was famously overturned in 1967, may not have been innocent after all, according to new claims made this week by members of his family.

Convicted for the brutal slaying of his wife Helen Kimble in September 1961, Kimble escaped custody during a freak train derailment two years later. He spent four years as the subject of an intensive manhunt before the discovery of new evidence led him to turn himself in to Stafford police in August of 1967.

According to Kimble’s sister, however, her brother was guilty of the crime, and the new evidence that exonerated him was faked.

Donna Taft, 81, maintained her brother’s innocence for more than fifty years. During his years as a fugitive, she was the Kimble family’s primary spokesperson and an outspoken critic of what she described as his “persecution” by prosecutors and police. Now, however, Taft says that Richard Kimble really did kill his wife.

“Richard was a severe alcoholic,” Taft explained in an interview Thursday. “Helen was a heavy drinker, too. They argued all the time and the arguments escalated into brawls. Then Dick found out that Helen was having an affair, and that caused him to snap.” According to Taft, her brother hired a man he met in a bar to kill his wife in exchange for a payment of $1,000. The man, Fred Johnson, was a troubled veteran with a history of violent larceny and assault and battery arrests. Johnson lost his right arm while serving in the Pacific during World War II.

Upon his arrest, Kimble told police and reporters that he had seen a one-armed man, whom he did not recognize, running from the scene of the crime. “Dick’s plan all along was that if the police did arrest him, he could just blame Johnson, and they would take his word over that of a known criminal,” Taft explained. But Kimble hadn’t counted on Johnson’s ability to disappear so completely. When the police were unable to locate Johnson, even after interrogating dozens of local amputees, Kimble was trapped.

According to Taft, Kimble did not confess to her his true role in the slaying until two or three years into his escape. “He was a master manipulator,” she said. “He fooled us all.” During Kimble’s four years on the run, reports occasionally surfaced in the press of strangers who helped Kimble elude capture. In particular, he had a knack for seducing lonely women who provided him with shelter and money.

“Yes, for a time, I believed he was innocent. That’s true,” said Terry Waverly, 73, who is the younger sister of Helen Kimble. “Only our mother was certain. She never trusted Dick, never.”

“I spoke to dozens of people who met Kimble, and nearly all of them described his empathy, his quiet warmth,” said Ed Robertson, author of The Fugitive Recaptured, a 1993 book that retraced Kimble’s path across the United States during his years of flight. “If it is true that he conspired to kill his wife, then he had to have been a true sociopath.”

In the interview last week, Taft said that her brother confessed to her because he was looking for a way out of a life on the run. “Dick was worn out. He’d suffered injuries and serious illnesses. Finally, he called my husband and I and asked us to help him find an exit strategy.” Kimble had always thought he could eventually settle down quietly somewhere, or leave the country, after the initial media frenzy around the escape. What Kimble had not counted on was the determination of Philip Gerard, the Stafford police lieutenant who initially arrested Kimble and in whose custody Kimble was on the night of the escape, to bring him to justice.

“Gerard was crazy,” Taft says. “He used his own money and vacation time to pursue Dick around the country. Dick was desperate. A few times he set up traps for Gerard — he lured him into the path of other criminals in the hopes that one of them would kill Gerard for him. But it never worked.”

Taft and her husband Leonard, discussed severing ties with Kimble. But in the end they agreed to help him. (Leonard Taft, now 87, was to ill to be interviewed at length, but he confirmed that his wife’s statements are true.) When a family friend, a court stenographer named Jean Carlisle, alerted Donna Taft that Johnson had been arrested on a different charge in Los Angeles, Kimble and the Tafts quickly devised a scheme to revive the original frame that Kimble had arranged for Johnson.

“Gerard interrogated Johnson and placed him in Stafford at the time of the murder, but he still didn’t buy it. He knew Dick too well by that time, knew he was a killer,” said Taft. “So we got Lloyd Chandler involved.”

Chandler, who died in 2005, was a neighbor who had never been publicly connected to the Kimble case. But in 1967 Chandler declared that he had been in the Kimble home at the time of the murder and had watched as Johnson, not Kimble, bludgeoned Helen Kimble with a lamp. That testimony led a judge to vacate the original verdict.

Chandler never offered an explanation for his six years of silence, and reporters at the time speculated that he had been having an affair with Helen Kimble. Taft confirmed that those rumors were true, and says that after Johnson was apprehended she and Leonard Taft approached Chandler with a bribe.

“We knew he had serious financial problems, and also we figured that if his story was questioned, the affair would make it seem plausible,” Taft explained. “Lloyd was desperate enough to perjure himself, and we all got away with it.”

But the conspiracy between Kimble, Chandler, and the Tafts went further than perjury. In order to prevent Johnson from implicating Kimble in the killing, Kimble and Chandler lured Johnson into a meeting where, claims Donna Taft, Kimble planned to kill Johnson. Although a clear account of that encounter never emerged, Johnson was slain – but by Gerard’s bullet. Gerard stated publicly that he was convinced of Kimble’s innocence by that point, and the press treated him as a hero. “POLICE PURSUER SLAYS ACTUAL KIMBLE KILLER,” read the headline in the Stafford News.

But, according to Taft, Gerard was actually aiming for Kimble and missed. “Gerard hated my brother so much he never put it together that Dick hired Johnson. He was sure that Chandler was lying, but he couldn’t prove it. If he had tried, he would have been implicating himself in the death of a man he thought was innocent,” said Taft. “So he kept his mouth shut.”

At the time, perhaps, but in the decades that followed, Gerard gave many interviews proclaiming his continued belief in Kimble’s guilt. Reporters at the Stafford News grew accustomed to ducking calls from Gerard, who suffered personal and professional setbacks as a result of Kimble’s exoneration. He took an early retirement from the Stafford police force in early 1968, a move that was not of his own volition, according to a former Stafford police official who insisted upon anonymity. Afterwards, Gerard briefly operated a private detective firm, and later worked as a uniformed security guard. He died in 2008.

“I don’t care about Richard Kimble,” said Philip Gerard, Jr., the only son of Lt. Philip Gerard, when reached on Monday. “Dad cared more about him than about his family. My mother left him and I grew up without a father because of Richard Kimble.”

Gerard, Jr., who retired from a thirty-year career with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2007, initially declined to comment further, but abruptly added: “When I started at the Bureau, I went to work for an old-time, by-the-book guy named Lew Erskine. He recognized my name and all he said was, ‘Chip off the old block?’ My dad alienated the Bureau guys all the time and I could tell just from Inspector Erskine’s expression that Dad had stepped on his toes, too.

“So if Kimble is guilty and that rehabilitates Dad’s reputation to any extent, I guess that’s a good thing,” Gerard said.

As for Kimble, he lived a quiet but restless life after winning his freedom. Although his license was restored by the Indiana Medical Board, Kimble never practiced medicine again. Instead, he moved to Los Angeles with Jean Carlisle, the typist who helped set his exoneration in motion. Their marriage ended in divorce after less than a year. According to Donna Taft, Kimble was living in San Pedro, California, with Karen Christian, a woman he first met during his time as a fugitive, when he died of complications of alcoholism in 1980 at the age of 48. “But he looked twenty years older,” said Taft. “He never recovered from the ordeal of being on the run. He was never happy again. And he couldn’t stop drinking.”

Kimble re-entered the headlines only once, in 1971, when he was questioned as a suspect in the Zodiac killings by San Francisco homicide detective Dave Toschi. Kimble was quickly cleared at the time.

“But if we know now that Kimble really was a killer, that’s a whole new ballgame,” said Robert Graysmith, author of several books on the Zodiac case. “I always thought Kimble was a strong suspect as the Zodiac. I tried to interview him, but he wouldn’t talk to me. He was a squirrely guy. He never made eye contact, not once. That definitely needs to be looked at again.”

Asked whether prosecutors were considering reopening the Kimble case, a spokesperson for the Stafford County District Attorney’s office had no comment. Pics below are of my collection and other memorabilia images I found online to go with this posting.

Special Thank You to Stephen Bowie for this awesome alternative ending to such a suspenseful TV Series of it’s time. Peace and Love Everyone. Enjoy your Sunday, Mike Hastings

• ... when it takes place in someone else’s home that you’ve broken into (and leave your dog behind)

Hey I will be the first to admit we do have some dumb ass people in my community. This one is a prime case of two. I will go as far as saying these two are Meth tweekers just from reading the story. No doubt about it. I can understand when your HIGH SEX DRIVE hits. They took this one a little to far. This would be great STORY for the Bob and Tom Morning Show.

A Hobbs man and Odessa woman were arrested Sunday night on felony charges in order to have a reported “quickie.”

David Josiah Hines, 21, of Hobbs and Kimberly Cave, 27, of Odessa were allegedly caught inside a Hobbs home police said they had broken into, when the homeowners arrived. They were seen leaving the home and hiding in a vacant house nearby, according to police reports.

When Hobbs police officers arrived, the two were caught and arrested on charges of burglary of a dwelling, a third-degree felony, and criminal damage to property, a fourth-degree felony.

According to the arrest reports, when Cave was interviewed by HPD investigators, she was asked why the couple entered the house. She reportedly said “to have a quickie.”

Police were called to a home in the 1800 block of Orchid. Upon arrival, the homeowners said when entering the residence, the male homeowner observed “two white individuals” running out of his bedroom through an open window. The homeowner said the two suspects were possibly hiding at a vacant house next to his. The homeowner said the female was seen wearing a pink shirt and the male had jeans on, but was not wearing a shirt.

The police report states the two officers found two people matching those descriptions in a nearby vacant house and were identified by the homeowners as Hines and Cave, the couple inside his house. A Hobbs police crime scene technician lifted a shoe print from the garage door that had been kicked in and another shoe impression from the living room floor. Police said the shoe impression from the garage door matched a shoe worn by Hines, while the impression from the living room floor matched Cave’s shoe.

As police officers investigated the home, one officer noticed a back window open and the screen had been broken. The officer also noticed a dog inside the bedroom, which Cave later said belonged to Hines. Also found in the bedroom was a watch that did not belong to the homeowner. At the time of their capture, police said Cave had a purse which possessed several keys.

The report states the homeowner checked his belongings and noticed several keys to his property were missing, as well as two Allen wrenches used to lock his bedroom doors. He estimated damage to his house at around $1,100. The couple was taken to HPD for further questioning. The homeowners also went to HPD to identify their missing keys. Not only did the homeowner find his keys, but said he believed the other keys belonged to the vacant house.

The police report states during her interview, Cave said she had been staying with Hines for approximately a week. She said they were walking to a house where Hines’ friend lived, when they walked by the home on Orchid. Cave said she thought the house was empty and Hines left her for a minute, then came back and walked her into the house.

Cave said they were in the house for about 15 minutes when they noticed people outside. Cave said she and Hines got dressed, ran out the back window and hid in the vacant house. When asked about how the keys landed in her purse, Cave reportedly said she did not know.

I would think that every city has a genuine person. This is the story of of ours that we just lost recently. He was just so cool is all I can say. In my book if I think you’re cool. Then your rock solid with me. That’s the effect this guy would give every person in my community.

Most Hobbsans know EJ Stokes, but never really knew who he was.

That’s because we never talked to him. We just waved hello or goodbye as we drove by.

With his pointy broom in hand and a smile on his blonde bushy face, Stokes, known to most of Hobbs as “broom man,” did everything he could to gain the attention of drivers as he danced and jumped on various corner streets advertising any of businesses. Always sporting a bandana and sunglasses, Stokes looked like a skinny version of famed professional wrestler Hulk Hogan.

Last seen publicly on the corner of Turner and Grimes advertising for an election candidate for a local office, Stokes passed away Saturday in his home in southeast Hobbs. He was 69. On Tuesday his passing was shown on social media, causing a flurry of “sad” emojis and replies of “RIP.” His son, Emory Stokes, of Lubbock, said his father’s health had deteriorated over the past couple of months.

The Stokes family spent Wednesday afternoon going over options for funeral arrangements.

Stokes got the “EJ” from his actual name, Emery Stokes Jr. Emory said Wednesday he was supposed to be Emery Stokes III. “But they spelled my name wrong,” he said. “I never bothered to get it changed. So I’m Emory with an ‘O’ not an ‘E.’” Sadly, for most of Emory’s life his relationship with his father was less than what EJ’s relationship was with many of the Hobbsans he saw on a daily basis. In fact, EJ’s sister, Barbara, didn’t know much of her older brother of years. Emory said EJ left home about a year after she was born and never kept in touch with his family.

“My grandfather, who my dad was named after, raised me,” Emory said. “My father and I were estranged for most of my life. When I was born my father was around 20 and not able to take care of a baby , so he and my gave me to my grandparents and they raised me. Barbara is technically my aunt, but she’s only years older than me and is more like an older sister than anything else. I didn’t know the truth about my father until I was in my teens.”

Father and began reconnecting in 20 when EJ’s passed away. When EJ heard his was sick, he returned home to be with her and then attended her funeral. Emory said the glue that brought him and his father together was the laughter they shared from EJ’s stories as Broom Man.

“Over the past or years that I’ve known him and reconnected, he talked about being the Broom Man,” Emory said. “He just loved it. I asked him once why he liked Hobbs and he told me he just loved Hobbs.”
EJ came to Hobbs in the late 1960s, early 70s because of the oilfield industry. He worked all the time and often found ways to get into trouble.

“Dad was a bit of a wild child,” Emory said. “He was always charismatic, but he found himself in trouble from time to time.”

Barbara’s , Samantha Banks, only met her uncle twice, but she could tell how smart of a man EJ was.

“He’d make you think he was dumb, but he was a very smart man,” Samantha said. “I think people underestimated him a lot and he liked that.”

Barbara and Emory said EJ had a fiscal mindset and would have done well had his life turned out differently.

“Had he had the right opportunities in life, he could have been someone like Bill Gates,” Emory said. “He had all these great ideas. He just didn’t have a very good childhood.” But he loved to make people laugh, Barbara and Emory said. “Which is why he was good at being the Broom Man,”

By 2008, Stokes had become permanently disabled from a career in the oilfield. He became the Broom Man about that time when Callaway Furniture on North Grimes was closing. The business hired people to advertise on the sidewalk. EJ signed up and got more attention when he used his broom.

From then on, EJ was hired by several businesses. He was seen in front of a Mexican food restaurant on South Dal Paso near Snyder, or on Bender near Saturday’s Restaurant. Most recently EJ was seen smiling and waving to southbound drivers turning from Turner onto Grimes.

His charisma is what Emory will miss most about his father. If there is a silver lining to their relationship, it’s that they finally got to have one in the past couple of years.

“I felt he deserved a better life,” Emory said as tears formed in his eyes. “I think he just got dealt a bad hand of cards. He deserved a better chance at life and I’m glad that I got the chance to get to know him a little bit.”

I am one of the many people that knew The Broom Man just as well as anyone else, but as the story says didn’t know a thing about him. It was always a pleasure seeing him with his broom. You see him up ahead and you automatically say “Check out Broom Man” I have to agree with his and niece how smart he was. He had a making idea with absolutely no overhead than an old broom. Now tell me that’s not a smart man. To me it was a novel idea.

“Broom Man” RIP brother. I will miss seeing and your broom showing the true meaning of Free Enterprise. Michael Hastings

The U.S. economic system of free enterprise operates according to main principles: the freedom to choose our businesses, the right to private property, the profit motive, competition, and consumer sovereignty.

The Broom Man was a man show in advertising and competed with everyone in that field locally.

This was in our local newspaper a few weeks ago from one of our local historians. I found it interesting, and hope you’ll like it as well.

Back in the early years of the 20th Century before there was a Lea County in New Mexico, the country that is now northern Lea County (then eastern Chaves County) was referred to on census records and in newspapers as “The Plains.” Although the nation was becoming more industrialized and “civilized” there were still areas where the Wild West of the 19th Century came alive from time to time.

One of those areas where the Old West reared its head was in the Ranger Lake area on Jan. 29, 1916, just a year and a couple of months before Lea County would come into existence.

The incident occurred on the Oscar Thompson ranch which is more commonly known as the old Underwood place. It was located about 12 miles northeast of Ranger Lake in what was then the eastern edge of Chaves County. Oscar Thompson was a well respected rancher, prominent businessman and banker in the Lovington area from 1898 until his death on June 29, 1928.

Lemuel R. (L.R.) Burleson was a nephew of Oscar and Annie (Burleson) Thompson and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Burleson of Bastrop, Texas. L.R. was born on April 23, 1871 and was 44 years, 9 months and 6 days old when he was killed on Jan. 29, 1916.

L.R. was the foreman for the Thompson ranch and apparently liked to tip the bottle a little or maybe a lot for it was when he was pretty much under the influence that his life terribly went wrong and came to an abrupt end.
After supper that fateful day Burleson already had a couple of sheets in the wind and had driven two young hired hands off the ranch by taking pot shots at them with his .45. The cowhands had to spend the night at a neighboring ranch.

Burleson’s bottle tipping continued into the evening and about midnight he proceeded to a windmill located about 200 yards from the house. It was there that earlier in the day he gave a man by the name of Emmet Goodin and his wife Maud permission to camp there for the night with their team and wagon. The couple was passing through on their way to Texas and needed a place to bed down for the night.

The Goodins were sleeping but Maud Goodin had awakened and saw Burleson standing on the wagon tongue with a lantern in one hand and a six-shooter in the other, Burleson told her to lie down or be shot, she screamed and her husband got up and armed himself. About that time L.R. took a shot at Mr. Goodin but missed, it is now pretty much all over. Before Burleson could cock his thumb buster and get off another round Emmet Goodin applied his single shot 12 gauge to Mr. Burleson very effectively. L.R. was hit over the right eye causing the removal of a major portion of the top of Burleson’s head. In an instant the fight was over with blood and whiskey being spilled in the dirt of the “Slash B.”

After the shooting Emmett Goodin contacted the authorities in Roswell and informed them of the shooting. Deputy Sheriff Frank Young left bright and early the next morning to bring Goodin back to Roswell to be charged with murder. His preliminary hearing was held in Roswell on the following Saturday, Feb. 5, 1916 before Judge Andrew J. Welter.

Once Emmett Goodin had been deposited in the Chaves county jail Deputy Young returned to the Plains to summon witnesses. District Attorney K.K. Scott was personally investigating the case and felt it certain that there would be important developments in the case……..he was a man of excellent foresight.
After the Feb. 5 hearing the charges were dismissed and Goodin was found innocent of murder (he and his wife being the only eye witnesses).

Now you would think that with the demise of L.R. Burleson and everything being on the up and up and justified that the story would be about as over as Burleson was, no, it gets more interesting.

It’s not over yet; totally unexpected and unrelated facts came to light during the hearing. It seems that Mr. Emmett Goodin (age 28, 5’ 4” tall and 160-plus pounds) was guilty of something else and this crime would result in Federal charges being filed.

It seems Goodin got crossways with the Mann Act, this young entrepreneur was guilty of White Slavery. It came out in the murder hearing that he had been crisscrossing the country with his new bride Maud and had been using his bride of 4 months for “commercial purposes.” He would travel from ranch to ranch, town to town and for a small fee invite the cowboys to the wagon to “visit” with his wife.

This was what had taken place on the Thompson ranch, the two cowboys had been invited to the wagon but Burleson got their attention and had scattered them like quail before any business could be transacted.
Emmett and Maud had married in Duncan, Okla., only four months prior to the shooting. In those four months they were married in Oklahoma, traveled to points unknown in the Texas Panhandle and New Mexico and were on their way back to Texas when they stopped at the wrong ranch house. Maud Goodin was described as looking younger than 16 years of age, having the features of a child and no doubt the mind of one.

The charges of White Slavery were investigated by special Investigator Fred E. Dennis and Goodin was taken to Santa Fe to be tried before Federal Judge William H. Pope. Goodin was found guilty and sentenced to four years, being allowed 336 days goodtime. Later while awaiting transportation to the federal prison at Leavenworth, Kan., he stated that he did not know that commercialization of one’s wife was against the law. But later, he slipped up and said that in some localities he was afraid to conduct business because of the presence of United States Marshal’s. He further stated that he did realize it was wrong, but they were broke and had to live. He must have made his Mother proud. …

While at Leavenworth he spent his time working in the stone shop and when he wasn’t doing that, he would suffer from illnesses such as the grippe, diphtheria, scarlet fever, constipation, quinsy, orchitis and coli cystitis.
Dang, all that in under four years, but this was not to be the end of his time behind bars.

When Sheriff Sam J. Rogers of Jacksboro in Jack County, Texas found out the Feds had Emmet, he contacted them to inform them that he wanted Goodin just as soon as he was time served. Seems that Mr. Goodin was wanted for burglary in Jack County and Sheriff Rogers would be coming after him at his time of release. Emmet Goodin was returned to Texas to face trial on burglary charges, convicted and was the guest of the State of Texas at Huntsville for a couple of years. This is where I lose the trail of Emmet Goodin, maybe he went back to the farm and stayed on the right side of the law – but I doubt it.

Footnote: As with most of the interesting stories I come across, I like to go and try to find where the incident occurred and this one was no different. One Sunday afternoon some years back I picked up my friends and fellow history lovers, Walter Beverly and Royce Smith and we headed out to find where the Burleson killing happened. We found the place without much trouble and stopped to visit with the family living there and to tell them the story and pass along some information on the killing.

It was a young family, mom, dad and three youngsters all under 12 years of age as I recall. We all stood out in the front yard and I told the story, I pointed out the location of the windmill, there’s a mill there today. The middle boy at my right side was about seven or eight years old who was listening very intently with his ears perked and his eyes wide open.
This young man was hanging on every word, if someone had said BOO! I think he’d jumped out of his boots. After I finished the story the Mother looked at the boy and said, “That might explain the chains rattling in the barn for no reason.” I thought the boy’s eyes were going to pop out of his head. I think they have moved away.

David L. Minton is the Lea County Historian.
A special “Thank You” to David for this interesting topic of Lea County History.

THE MANN ACT: Congress passes the Mann Act, also known as the White Slave Traffic Act, which was ostensibly aimed at keeping innocent girls from being lured into prostitution, but really offered a way to make a crime out of many kinds of consensual sexual activity.
The outrage over “white slavery” began with a commission appointed in 1907 to investigate the problem of immigrant prostitutes. Allegedly, women were brought to America for the purpose of being forced into sexual slavery; likewise, immigrant men were allegedly luring American girls into prostitution.
The Congressional committees that debated the Mann Act did not believe that a girl would ever choose to be a prostitute unless she was drugged and held hostage. The law made it illegal to “transport any woman or girl” across state lines “for any immoral purpose.”

Hey Everyone,

It looks like I took more of an extended break than I anticipated. I only went over about four months. When you’re having fun who is counting the days. I left off in Nov. 2018 so it’s been six months. My annual gold membership ends in a couple of months so I turned off my auto renew. We’ll see what deal they will offer for renewing the annual gold. You know ’s how you get your best deal. If you let the auto renew do it you premium. The last four I got a better offer turning it off a month early. Hopefully I will get the same offer for the fifth time. We shall see.

TJ who is my FWB has been a friend for 25 . It’s a long story how we met. Maybe something to write about later on. I couldn’t ask for a better person at this time to fill the empty void I’ve had in my life. As far as using other titles to describe our relationship friends is good enough. Lovers, Significant Other, Special Friend.. fuck all shit. We’re friends and ’s it.

Actually TJ is one of my few friends in life my parents enjoyed, welcomed, and trusted whole heartedly. If I were to us one of those mentioned, what we have would be over as fast as we started. With said, I would be considered a Serial Killer of Relationships. Whether it was a wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or whatever as soon as it starts getting serious for some reason I fuck everything . So I just leave it as friends and go with .

I won’t be posting like before with porn reviews and songs. It was fun back then. But I will share with you the websites I found them on and you can check them out if you’re not familiar with them. The main one was 1. dvderotik. this one carries everything but gay vids. The others: 2. falcon. 3. wicked. 4. cockyboysstore. 5. dvdgayempire. 6. evilangelempire. and 7. avn. (1) Those were my Lucky 7 sources for the hottest porn out. So if you enjoyed my porn reviews those sites are the ones to visit.

As for my music posts I went to just uploading on youtube. ’s what I’ve been doing in my absence here. Check it out if you like all you have to do is put my username here in the search bar on the tube and you can find me. As for my future postings? Stay Tuned!

Robert Cabot Sherman Jr. (born July 22, 1943) is an American singer, actor and occasional songwriter, who became a popular teen idol in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He had a series of successful singles, notably the million-seller "Little Woman" 1969. Sherman mostly retired from music in the 1970s for a career as a paramedic and later police officer, though he still performs and records occasionally.

Sherman graduated in 1961 from Birmingham High School in Van Nuys, California. He attended Pierce College in Woodland Hills, California. His interest in music began at age 11 when he learned to play the trumpet.
He eventually progressed to playing 16 musical instruments. At Birmingham High School Bobby played football, joined a dance band, and discovered his love for singing.

In 1962, Sal Mineo took Sherman under his wing and wrote two songs for him as well as arranging for Sherman to record the songs, then in 1964 when Sherman was asked by Mineo to sing with his old band at a Hollywood party (where many actors and agents were in attendance) Sherman made such an impression at that party he was signed with an agent and eventually a part on the ABC television show Shindig! as a regular cast member/house singer.

Shindig! ran for two years keeping Sherman busy from 1964-66.

During that time Bobby made several records with Decca and another smaller label, and landed in all the teen magazines, but it did not seem to catapult his career. Sherman's luck changed drastically early in 1968 when, out of hundreds of actors, he was selected for the role of the bashful, stammering logger, Jeremy Bolt, in the television series Here Come the Brides 1968-1970 ABC.

Sherman appeared on an episode of Honey West 1964 entitled "The Princess and the Paupers" as a kidnapped band member and an episode of The Monkees entitled "Monkees at the Movies", playing a pompous surfer/singer named Frankie Catalina in the vein of Frankie Avalon, performing the song "The New Girl in School" (the flip of Jan & Dean's "Dead Man's Curve", co-written by The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson, Jan Berry of Jan and Dean, songwriter Roger Christian and Bob Norberg, who was a roommate of Wilson at the time.

Sherman released 107 songs, 23 singles and 10 albums between 1962-1976. In his recording career he earned seven gold singles, one platinum single, and five gold albums. He had a career total of seven top 40 hits. In 1969, he signed with Metromedia Records, the new recording arm of Metromedia. In May 1969 they released the single "Little Woman", which peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart #2 in Canada and spent nine weeks in the Top 20. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A. in October 1969.

His other hits were "Julie, Do Ya Love Me" US #5/AC #2 Canada #3 Australia #3 written by Tom Bahler, "Easy Come, Easy Go" US #9/AC #2 Canada #6, "Jennifer" US #60/AC #9 Canada #32, "La LaLa (If I Had You" US #9/AC #14 Canada #7, and "The Drum" US #29/AC #2 Canada #7 (written by Alan O'Day). Some of these songs were produced by Jackie Mills, a Hollywood record producer, who also produced the Brady Bunch Kids.

In Canada "Hey, Mister Sun" reached #19, "Cried Like a Baby" reached #10, and "Waiting At The Bus Stop" reached #31. "La, La, La," "Easy Come, Easy Go," and "Julie, Do Ya Love Me" all sold in excess of a million copies and garnered further gold discs for Sherman. "Julie, Do Ya Love Me" was Sherman's sole excursion in the UK Singles Chart, where it peaked at #28 in November 1970. The song competed there for chart space with White Plains' cover version, which eventually placed higher at #8.

Sherman toured extensively through the United States and the world in support of his many records and albums. He gave many concerts to sellout crowds of mostly screaming young women from the late 1960s to the mid 1970s. The screaming by the young women was so loud that Sherman to this day has experienced hearing loss.

Sherman was a frequent guest on American Bandstand and Where the Action Is. He made local and regional TV performances. A March 1971 episode of The Partridge Family featured Sherman, serving as a back-door pilot for the ABC TV series Getting Together, which aired starting in September 1971. The show competed with All in the Family on Saturday nights and was canceled after 14 episodes.

Sherman was a guest star on television series such as The Mod Squad, Ellery Queen, Murder She Wrote and Frasier. He has also been a guest on The Ed Sullivan Show, American Bandstand, The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour, KTLA Morning News, Visiting with Huell Howser on PBS, Good Day LA, The Rosie O'Donnell Show, Good Morning America, and The Tonight Show with both Johnny Carson and later with Jay Leno. He was featured on 20/20, VH1, Entertainment Tonight, and Extra, among other television shows.

Sherman was a regular cast member on the television show Sanchez of Bel Air in 1986. He was also cast as Jeremy Bolt in the series "Here Come the Brides" from September 25, 1968 to April 3, 1970.

In 1998, after a 25-year absence, eager fans flocked to see him in concert as part of "The Teen Idol Tour" with Peter Noone, and Davy Jones. Fellow Monkees member Micky Dolenz replaced Davy Jones on the tour in 1999. He did his last concert as a solo performer in Lincoln, Rhode Island on August 25, 2001. Bobby has retired from public life; however, he still does corporate events occasionally as well as his ongoing charities. He was ranked #8 in TV Guide's list of "TV's 25 Greatest Teen Idols" January 23, 2005 issue.

Asia is the self-titled debut studio album by English rock band Asia, released in 1982. According to both Billboard and Cashbox, it was the #1 album in the United States for the year 1982. It contains their biggest hit "Heat of the Moment", which reached #4 in the US on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Alpha is the second studio album by British rock band Asia, released on 26 July 1983 in the United States and on 12 August 1983 in the United Kingdom by Geffen Records. Recorded at Le Studio in Morin-Heights, Quebec, and Manta Sound in Toronto from February to May 1983, the album was produced, like its multi-platinum predecessor, by Mike Stone.

Guitarist Steve Howe left the band in 1984. Thus, Alpha was the last album to feature the band's original line-up until Phoenix which was released in 2008. The original line-up re-formed two years earlier in 2006.

The cover artwork was designed by Roger Dean, known for his work with Yes, which Howe and keyboard player Geoff Downeshad previously been members of.

Alpha has been re-issued numerous times, especially in Japan. Platinum SHM-CD with a DSD flat transfer from original master tapes was released by Universal Music in 2014 and included "Daylight" and "Lying to Yourself" as bonus tracks. In 2017, the album was released on Audio Fidelity hybrid SACD remastered by Kevin Gray.

I never meant to be so bad to you
One thing I said that I would never do
A look from you and I would fall from grace
And that would wipe the smile right from my face

Do you remember when we used to dance
And incidents arose from circumstance?
One thing led to another, we were young
And we would scream together songs unsung

It was the heat of the moment
Telling me what my heart meant
The heat of the moment shone in your eyes

And now you find yourself in '82
The disco hot-spots hold no charm for you
You can't concern yourself with bigger things
You catch the pearl and ride the dragon's wings

'Cause it's the heat of the moment
The heat of the moment
The heat of the moment shone in your eyes

And when your looks are gone and you're alone
How many nights you sit beside the phone?
What were the things you wanted for yourself?
Teenage ambition you remember well

It was the heat of the moment
Telling you what your heart meant
The heat of the moment shone in your eyes

It was the heat of the moment
Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment shone in your eyes

Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment

Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment

Hard times you had before you
I knew when I first saw you
You girl you've always been mistreated, cheated

So leave it all behind you
It took so long to find you
I know that we can last forever, ever and more, more, oh

Don't Cry now that I've found you
Don't Cry take a look around you
Don't Cry it took so long to find you
Do what you want, but little darling please Don't Cry

I knew I'd never doubt it
I was so sure about it
Don't think of all that's been before

I'll hear you when you're calling
I'll catch you when you're falling
Don't worry I will always be there, like never before, or, oh
