18:55-- yesitsme: @Bill; That is my hubs Pet Peeve too - in spades. When he has time he reports them to the store or Security people at the store, or police if they happen to be there.
18:56-- yesitsme: I see 'em and just fume to myself.
19:18-- DebbieKay: Tex, notify the principal of the school and the Kaufman Co SO/SRO. Give the vehicle description and the license plate and they can talk to her about how she is endangering her grandkid's life by having him/her cross through the pick up lanes.
19:25-- yesitsme: heh - maybe you CAN 'do something about it'
22:10-- yesitsme: HEY! What kind of gang fight or kid fight happened over here downtown about 25 minutes ago??
22:11-- yesitsme: Seen anything on facebook? It was at Guest & Gray office.
22:12-- yesitsme: (I'm assuming fight --- because I don't know another reason 25 HS age boys gather at a time on the street - and then 3 cop cars show up.
22:13-- yesitsme: The weird part is that many boys don't normally 'walk' home from school that way.... it was something they 'knew' about ahead of time.
22:14-- yesitsme: oH.. Well.. a lot of them could have stopped by in their cars too... the side-of-the-building lot was pretty full for a few minutes.
22:14-- yesitsme: "I'll meet you at the tracks!"
15:11-- ranger1: seems like their are less busy places to meet up to fight
15:35-- Gonzo: Thats a pretty big assumption, isn't it?
15:38-- Gonzo: A great battle for playoff spots has been brewing in District 10-4A baseball this year.
15:38-- Gonzo: Gonna come down to the last games.
16:23-- yesitsme: Yes it is. That's what I (tend to) do. It was something though... 3 youth were given criminal trespass charge-warnings out of it whatever it was.
16:23-- yesitsme: When I first saw them I thought it was a school group meeting or something. On the sidewalk.
16:24-- yesitsme: (Until 3 FP vehicles showed.)
16:25-- yesitsme: Ok - admitting and admit it might have been no 'fight'. I didn't see that going on.
16:26-- yesitsme: I just know that office gals being interviewed were pretty worked up. (Body language)
16:28-- yesitsme: The baseball is exciting right now.
17:55-- Gonzo: Forney is making a late charge at this thing. They need some help, but they have done their part this week. For the first time in forever, I am a big Terrell Tiger fan tonight.
16:00-- Bill: Tomorrow is Easter and it always makes me wonder - Whatever happened to white sport coats?
20:01-- yesitsme: Haha.. nothing. Wear one. .. if you want to look like Col.Sanders or a doctor or a chef.
20:04-- yesitsme: You would certainly stand out!
20:25-- yesitsme: ... or WAIT! Hahah.. I know! You could bring it back the 80's style a'la Miami Vice; Remember Don Johnson/Sonny Crockett wearing them? :P
20:26-- yesitsme: I actually think HE is what happened to the men's white jacket!! (Sports coat)
20:29-- yesitsme: ... and no socks w his dress pant.
20:47-- yesitsme: Hahah-this
20:48-- yesitsme: Retro. Even back to the 70's. NOT 2010's. (Unless you start it back)
22:52-- Bill: LOL @ YIM - that's funny - When we were kids, we wore White sports coats, black trousers to church on Easter - everybody got decked out - Pat Boone had a song about it - I actually like that look
22:54-- Bill: Then in the 70s we had white shoes and white belts. Maybe late 60s. I guess we could only wear those after Easter. What happened to white shoes/belts for guys? BTW - I did have a White Leisure suit (similar to your picture) that I wore to the Disco - one of my old part time jobs before college graduation was as a "host" at "The Point" at NorthWest and Shady Brook.
22:55-- Bill: Got the Leisure Suit at a department store called Levines in Mesquite - bet you don't remember that store.
23:28-- DebbieKay: The first thing that popped into my mind was the song lyrics, "A white sport coat and a pink carnation. I'm all dressed up for the dance".
23:28-- DebbieKay: Levine's is still in Mesquite. We buy school clothes there.
23:29-- DebbieKay: Marty Robbins sang the song I was thinking of.
23:47-- Bill: DK - I had no idea that store was still around. So much else has changed in that area. Texan Theater and City Drug gone from the square - Tobies Men's stores all gone - Moon's Restaurant where I used to eat - good to know something survived.

I wonder how that happened??? That looks like the straight shot out of the park. I assumed it was back by the curve.

Someone on Facebook posted about seeing the kid take off from the parking lot(I assume down by the courts) then heard a crash.

The dumbass HS kids think they are cool and will take off from down there through the lot like it's a drag race then turn onto the main road coming into the park. I heard he was 17 and didn't have a license.

Maybe parents need to have a sit-down with their teens to remind them about the rules of driving---before we have another tragedy in Forney this summer. Teenagers driving is just scary, I think I had 3 minor accidents between 16 and 18 years of age--and I was driving like a grandma!
“They're called 'facts', and my role is to amplify those, not cheerlead. And I don't care at all...
