    “..Document the condition of your foundation and walls on a regular basis.” I rephrase that to say ”hey frackers..Document the condition of your foundation and wells (casings) on a regular basis.”

      Hon, unless I’m mistaken, the point of this blog post is “Earthquakes” that occurred early this morning south of Dallas, TX! It’s not like we had them that much when I was growing up, so I would like to discuss that if you don’t mind. Thanks a bunch.

          Thank you for asking, Miss Sharon. I am so ready to enjoy my retirement in Midlothian. Can’t wait. But now, today (the Lord’s Day) there’s been another three of those earthshakes. I was really enjoyin thinking about my retirement until they blew up that frackin factory not far down the road from here. Now these shakes…I may just have to stop this darn frack attack. Thank you, darlin’.
