I was preparing to turn right out onto the road, checking it out to my left and saw NOTHING coming. So, I turn out and about 6 seconds later this road ragger is on my ass, in my blind spot tails me all the way to the 4 lane busy intersection and then gets in the right hand turn lane, stops next to my SUV. I hollered out window U NEED TO BACK OFF LOUIE!, He calls “me” a b-tch, I then exercised my constitutional right to flip him the upside down bird and yell back Hey I Got Your B-itch Right Here!! He drove off.

Jonathan posted your Claire Danes blog on FB.
Coincidentally I’m visiting them & just brought Jenn the Feb 2017 issue of Bazaar with Claire Danes on the cover!
Hope all’s well.

You’re such a badass writer!

It’s awesome that you’re the second generation of your last name. I am too, since Pait was the name given to my dad even though it was neither my grandmother or grandfather’s last name. Any other Pait you would meet in Texas will definitely have my DNA! I like having a unique name, even though there are always red lines under it every time i type it..

It’s amazing how you were able to find so much detail about your heritage. I used to think learning anything about my dad’s side of the family was a lost cause. But not anymore 🙂

It’ll be repaired with VW factory parts and should be ready in two weeks!

But I’ll take it a step further and say that it’s the demands of friendship that make us human.

It must have been the one we hit. No blood, no gore, just frozen and covered with snow.

Comment on Prospecting by jnyveen http://blog.jeffnyveen.com/prospecting/#comment-10 Thu, 16 Aug 2012 20:25:00 +0000 http://blog.jeffnyveen.com/?p=234#comment-10 Took a first look at 2012 numbers last night and came up with some fresh names to watch. My very early pick for future star is Joey Gallo.

The 18-year-old has only batted 200 times in rookie ball, but it’s a very impressive 200 times.

Others off to hot starts and near the top of my list, all with very limited playing time, are Mike Zunino, Paul Hoenecke, and Daniel Vogelbach.
