"The Devil went down to Texas"
I heard a funny conversation take place the other day on CH 13 around the ICW and Texas City Channel.
The “Risen Savior” was Eastbound coming out of Pelican Cut bound for Texas City.
The “Diablo” was Outbound Texas City Channel bound for Houston.
“Come in there, Risen Savior.” (Diablo transmitting)
“Risen Savior, back.”
“Yeah, Jesus, this is the Devil. Hey, I’m plannin’ on cuttin’ the Texas City Flats bound for Houston. Think I could catch ya on da 2?” (Diablo)
“Yeah, Jesus back to da Devil. Well, I ain’t ever cut a deal with ya before and I and I am not sure if I should start now.” (Risen Savior)
“Yeah, ya got a good point, der. I am known to be kind of a trickster. But then again how do ya know I will catch ya on da one?” (Diablo)
“Yeah, that is something true comin out of your mouth for a change.” (Risen Savior)
“How about we just stay as far away from each other as possible?” (Diablo)
“Yeah, ok, I reckon my Dad would be ok with that. You go your way and I’ll go mine.” (Risen Savior)
It was light hearted and there could be heard some chuckling in their voices.
They got serious and agreed to a 2 whistle and off they went, I am sure chuckling to themselves all the way to their destinations.
Just struck me as funny.
Thought I would share with you all.
