New Year's Resolutions

Be it resolved that in 2003, I will not drink from empty bottles, or swim in empty rivers.

I will not compete in team roping contests. I will not run for public office, or join a religious order.

Usually, I don’t make resolutions. I hate to disappointment myself. But 2003 may be my last chance to become a new man. I have really worked on these, and you’re welcome to adopt any that might work for you.

The Gilagator Is Not A Croc

Ervin, a new graduate of Texas A&M, thought that if he was to give himself a proper start in life, he needed a pair of alligator cowboy boots.

This was more than 30 years ago, when Texas A&M was not the sophisticated university that now presents itself. Today you can hardly find the words “agricultural and mechanical” on the Aggie website, but back then it was a cow college, and Aggies were the butts of many rude jokes.

Even that long ago, a good pair of handmade alligator boots sold for $700, which was beyond the means of a country …
