Semitough is a
fortysomething fiftysomething (Ouch! That hurt) male who lives deep in the heart of Texas. This blog will chronicle the ups, downs, and goings on of the Semitough family as they navigate the perils of suburban life.
Semitough has varied interests which will be reflected in the posts found here. Also reflected will be Semitough’s tendency to refer to himself in the third person.
Cast of Characters:
Semitough: Fortysomething nouveau redneck who is semi-tough and semi-literate.
Mi Esposa: The ravishingly beautiful life partner, soul mate, and opposite gendered special friend of Semitough. Esposa has been tolerating Semitough since 1988 when they met on a blind date. She is also the world’s greatest sales guru, rainmaker, and general all around phenom in the drill team/cheerleader/flag corps/dance market. If you find yourself in need of outfitting a whole whack of prancing dancers, drop Semitough a line and he’ll have the Esposa hook you up.
The Princess: The sixteen year old daughter of Semitough and Esposa. The Princess is a lovely vision, like her mother, who is not only beautiful but smart and a dedicated high school athlete. Although she is easily distracted by pretty shiny things.
The Energizer Buddy: The eleven year old son of Semitough and Esposa. The Buddy is also an accomplished athlete, following in his older sister’s wake. Highly competitive, too smart for his own good, too smart for Semitough’s own good, and good looking to boot, Buddy’s ambition is to become an Abercrombie model so he can get free clothes.
ShidZoo: The quadrapedal canine housemate of the Semitough family.
The Westsider: The Westsider is the opposite gendered special friend of The Princess. Westsider is a student, tennis jockey and works at one of those high tone, au naturel, organic, range fed type stores. Sprockets or something like that. RIP. Curb kicked 8-31-06
Reggie “Flycatcher” McFly: Semitough’s baby brother. Mobile DJ, bidnizman and entertainer extraordinaire.
Niece Lovlee: First and only born child of Brother Reggie.
Number One: Semitough’s firstborn offspring. Padre to the lovely Tinker Belle
ACE the Deuce: Second in line for the Semitough “throne” an honor for which he would probably not wish to vie for, ACE is Semitough’s second born male offspring.
Tinker Belle: Number One’s number one. Smartest, sweetest, prettiest little girl on the planet. If you don’t believe it just ask her Pappy. Go ahead. Ask me.
