My Town Monday

I didn't get a My Town Monday post written up on my days off this week and my weekend in packed full of flag football games and what not so I have no real post to offer this week . Instead I'll give y'all a video from one of the funniest people to ever call the Texas Panhandle home.




Ron White first gained national fame as part of the Blue Collar comedy tour alongside Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, and Larry the Cable Guy.

Ron usually performs his act clad in all black, smoking, and sipping scotch. He hails from Fritch, Texas which is 30 miles northeast of Amarillo.

You can buy his CDs,DVDs, and book here. Or find his official website here. For those of you in or around Amarillo, he is scheduled to appear on Amarillo on October 11th.

Sounds like a busy weekend, Travis, so don't apologize. I took a shortcut, too, but at least put up a photo of foggy San Clemente. Mary is so right about all of us needing a laugh this week.

I like Ron White a lot and this is one of his funniest bits.

Junosmom said...

Mine is up, Travis.

Clare2e said...

Women of Mystery's MTM is up, too.

From the first time I saw Ron White, he reminded me of so many of the local businessmen I'd grown up around in Dallas. Loudmouthed, willing to offend, hardliving, and grinning about it the whole way.

Joshua said...

I got to see Ron in St. Louis and man was that great show. Very cool man

Junosmom said...

Travis thanks for listing me. Forgot to put a link to you on my original post but I've fixed that in one of my many edits.

Travis,

I came over from Barrie's blog, where I read her MTM posts. After a trip to my home town this weekend, I decided to join in on this week's posts.

Beth Yarnall said...

Gotta love flag football! Thanks for the laugh.
I have another MTM post for you from Tustin, CA in The OC. Thanks Travis!

That guy is funny, I have never seen him before. I will have to make sure I keep an eye out for him now.

Mine is up, but I have to edit in a link to you - oops.

Clair Dickson said...

Ron White is quite funny.

My MTM post is up now.

Barbara Martin said...

Finally, a comment section. Blogger has been acting up this last week for me. Blast.

The video was hysterically funny! Thanks, I needed that today.

Anyway, my post is up.
