“My high school guys called me ‘Chester Good from Hollywood,’ I think because I always stayed so clean when I played. I was a pitcher, and I never got dirty.”

“‘Butch,’ because I was so ornery.”

“‘Love Bug,’ because I would go to just anyone when I was a small child — just wanted love from anyone.”

“I got a better nickname now. A version of Holroyd turned into ‘Hemorrhoid.’”

nothing irregular down at my end of the neighborhood, or with the dog.

And what a nice surprise.... Hawk has admitted to all of us what we knew....what he is full of.

In Dalhart, he wont' have to drive to a Walgreens or a Walmart to get his tubes of relief. They have nice independent drugstores downtown..

Not too far from the Big Texan Restaurant. 72 oz steak for free if you can eat it. Kind of the way that Hawk thinks government should work.

'not_holroyd" had a hard time getting to post as the Suppositorie wouldn't fit.

And yes, "commentator_on _the axe" I have been working on this for some time. Wait till you see the campaign buttons, well shall we say, campaign logo tubes.

Preparation H is the solution to city hall. The welcome mat is about to be taken up and replaced with a new one. The present mat at city hall, needs to be laundered as it hasn't seen a scrubbing for years. Lots of dead weight trampling on it daily.

I hope "not-holroyd" got the right dose of suppositories. Too much and the poor thing will be in trouble and won't be able to sit still at The Moronic Temple of entertainment.

German food is that I smell or is it "not-holroyd".

Either way, it 's shchnitzel to me :)

Let's see, with the name Deja I was lucky to have many nicknames from Dejavu, Deha, to D.J. I had a math teacher who for some reason couldn't say my first name and just called me by my last name. My mother called me fat baby because I was a.....fat...baby. Then there was freshman year. Right after basketball practice in the locker room changing I declared to all the girls that my chest was uneven. Thinking this was nothing more then girl bonding time. Unfortunately the freshman boys were changing in their locker room and heard the whole thing. One of them came up to me when I left the locker room, looks at me and goes, "you're right! They are uneven....Lopy!!" Yes, I had the nickname Lopy in high school. While my chest changed, the nickname remained. Luckily I was popular enough to just go with it and have fun. But of all the nicknames, it had to be Lopy. Geez.

My latino friends called me "El diablo blanco," whatever that means.

I got a better nickname now. A version of Holroyd turned into ‘Hemorrhoid.’”  — David Holroyd, retired, Lawrence

Is it any surprise one of the community's largest pains in the you-know-what has such a nickname?

This is much better than hawkperchedwithapoleupmybuttontheriverfront

More accurate too. Is Checkers where he goes for dates?

He ought to try out the Red Hat ladies in Dalhart. They have a meeting on Thursday.

R_I, I think it is the cost of doing business, so probably just a deduction of income. Yea, that is double taxation, like the oil and gas severance tax/ ad valorum tax. Join the club.

Cooney Man. It's not a racial slur. It's old fashioned southern slang for "clever and crafty like a raccoon." You can look it up in the Dictionary of American Slang.

My brother started calling me Trobs when I was....6 or 7. Somehow it got that from Robert. It has stuck around forever. Now it's just part of my name. Can't get rid of it.

Just a hypothetical question: The Drug Stamp Tax... Is that considered personal property tax , or do you claim it as a large ticket item tax for deduction purposes.

Must be church member on staff. Way to be objective journalists. I guess it is easier to erase questions than have to answer them.

When I was in grade school, they used me "shrimp" or shrimp-o at recess during our "soccer" game, because I was so short and small. Didn't bother me too much because it was true.

hawkperchedonriverfront, It doesn't look like your little friend is biting today. They did take a nice picture of you shopping as you were, brave of you! Bet you were enjoying that moment. I would have expected a big %^&* eating grin to go along with that. Did you have that "Hemorrhoid" line planned out, just so you could say that about not_holroyd and City Hall? Have you planned this for years, just hoping to be asked someday? Do tell, I'm sure you probably have a few more lined up after that "doozey".

And the Preparation H needs to go to city hall, with "not_holroyd' administering it. Then that welcome mat will open up :)

An early job was driving a NAPA truck. You can guess the rest.

Fortunately, for all involved, the nickname did not stick.

Hmmm... let's see.

When I was in 6th Grade they called me Patricia for a while when I forgot to put my name on a book report and had the author's on the top instead. A substitute came the following day and called out the name of the author and when I went up to get it after everyone had a moment of confusion there was some huge laughter when I went up to claim it because I am a male and the sub had to wonder and did not want to give it to me because everybody knew that there was no Patricia Lauber in the classroom and I was very clearly a male in addition to that. I guess I forgot to put my name at the top.

The other nicknames would give away my real name because it is really easy to rhyme with and I had nearly a million of them.
