It’s Tough Being a Black Gold Texan

Well! I’ll never look at pumping gasoline into my car in the same way again!

There’s this new TV show– broadcasts tonight actually– called truTV BLACK GOLD, and it’s about a bunch of Texas oil rig and drill operators who have only 50 days to drill four oil wells. My advice to these guys– QUIT fooling around and knocking your heads together, and get drilling!!! America needs her oil, dudes!!

If you ever saw the very popular Deadliest Catch show, then it’s JUST like that. I’ve seen that show, at the fitness gym where they have TVs. And I liked that show! But I just LOVE seafood. šŸ˜€

Here’s a sneak preview of the truTV BLACK GOLD. Be warned, half of the audio on this video is *beeped* out. Boy, these guys talk WAY too much and drill WAY too little! lol! :smarty:

You know– are these truTV BLACK GOLD characters for real?! I mean– all these guys are hunky and tough roughnecks, and seem to feel mighty comfortable in front of the cameras… is West Texas REALLY like this? With sweaty guys pushing each other and banging their hard hats together?! Their truTV BLACK GOLD Healthcare must be outta this world, man oh man. Hmmm. I know I have a lot of readers from Texas. You tell me.

So… WHEN are we Upstate New Yorkers going be featured on ACTUAL TV, huh? I mean– dodging the deer on the highways, and beating off the black flies of summer, and paying ALL these taxes is pretty ROUGH around here!!! I think we need some equal time.

    I have never seen the show Rebecca but i am a native Texan and yes there are some pretty wild and crazy men there. West Texas really is big oil country and there are really a lot of good looking men that hail from Texas.

    My hubby is one of them. He was very handsome when we married. He wore the tight jeans, fancy cowboy boots and yes even a cowboy hat. But the movie, I won’t mention the name, but it’s a story about 2 supposedly cowboys….has completely and forever ruined the entire cowboy look and way.

    Now Walter never wears his hat anymore. That movie made a mockery of the real cowboy and in my opinion was a disgrace. I miss my man all dressed up in his hat and boots. But, he refuses to wear them now all because of the movie.

    oh my I apologize for rambling on so the other night. I am finally over this cold and rested and hopefully more coherent now. Benadryl and I just don;t mix well.
    Happy weekend to you!!

    Hey, Jackie! Thanks for clearing this up. I’m trying to remember if I have ever even MET a Texan, and I don’t think I ever have! I don’t think too many Texans come to New York. It’s usually the other way around.
