Police: Rockwall woman had mom shoot her husband
Rowlett officers arrest 44-year-old accused of having online affair

Rowlett police say a married woman who was having an online affair wanted her husband dead.
So she had her mother shoot him in the back of the head after serving him a slice of cake, Rowlett police spokesman John Ellison said.
Robin Handel, 44, of Rockwall was arrested Thursday on a charge of conspiracy to commit aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the Nov. 30 shooting of her husband, Stephen Handel, Mr. Ellison said.
"The investigation pointed to [Ms. Handel] having some type of online relationship with an unknown person," Mr. Ellison said. "The investigation doesn't show that this individual is involved at this time."
Mr. Handel, 38, survived the shooting at the Dalrock Meadows Mobile Home Park in the 8700 block of Lakeview Parkway. The bullet was fired from a small-caliber gun and apparently didn't penetrate his skull, police said.
After the shooting, Ms. Handel's 71-year-old mother, Janelle Thompson, barricaded herself in her home for about 90 minutes. When she came out, police noticed she had shot herself twice in the chest.
Ms. Thompson underwent surgery and was arrested the day after the shooting on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, Mr. Ellison said. She was being held at the Dallas County Jail on Thursday night in lieu of $5,000 bail.
Ms. Handel was being held at the Rowlett Jail, where her bail information was not available.

While you are working at work so late,
A snack is a must when working past eight.
Being from Seussville and loving to eat,
I wonder if I could offer you Potted Giraffe's Feet?
I know you are tired and want to just get it done,
but working is not fun if you "just get it done."
So allow me to offer you one more fun snack,
It is one of my favorites...it is called Blackened Jack.
I know it does not sound good but I thought that too,
until I took a bite and my mind was changed, Lou.
Now Jack is not a veg or a meat or a cheese,
Jack is a piece of the penguin's left knees.
Do not feel for the penguin whose knee that it is,
because some birds like to donate this for the enjoyment that it gives.
Some penguins like humans much more than they should,
they donate one knee because it just makes them feel good.
The knee is then sent to the south, south, south pole,
When it is beaten and beaten and dipped in yellow snow.
We all know that the yellow on the snow is tee tee
from some "thing,"
but when drenched on that knee it is oh! so enticing.
Now you may not go for the potted feet or blackened jack,
I have one last suggestion...how about Polar Bear Crack?
Polar Bear Crack is so sweet and quite smooth,
A lot of us eat it because of our sweet tooth.
You may prefer meat to any sweet thing we know,
So how about Hedgehog Pits to fill the void in your toe.
If eaten correctly, it goes straight to the toe and there it will stay
till the toe is so so.
I have eaten it often and enjoyed it a lot,
but just do not eat it if you are real hot.
It is not for the summer or spring for that matter,
If eaten when hot the stuff sticks to you bladder.
This causes a reaction that is hard to believe,
but the bladder will continute to relieve and relieve,
Then people will make fun of YOU as you "go"
because then you will be causing all the yellow in the snow.

We were all just bored and decided to go fishing behind our house. There is this little pond back there and we just dug up some worms and made a homemade fishing pole. It was so fun!!!! Everyone caught fish. Jakob caught the first one a baby perch. Then Kora was next also catching a baby perch. PaPa was next catching a five pound catfish. Austin came later catching a massive fish.
Kora caught this seven pound catfish and it almost pulled her in the water but PaPa caught Kora
and saved her.

I will try and list a few things that most people do not know about me but my wife knows it all.
First everyone knows I am a big Dallas Mavericks fan. I just totally love basketball. I love to watch it and play it. One thing you may not know about me is that I never touched a basketball until I was around 19 years old. Scott Pierce introduced me to basketball in his driveway. He was patience with me and taught me a lot of things about the game. Scott played high school and college basketball and was very good. He showed me that you didn't need to be tall to play good basketball. He was an excellent point guard and could drive to the basket against the best of them. Thank you Scott for teaching me a game that has changed my life. It gave me the confidence that I needed in life to succeed. My secret is that I always wished I had been able to play some level of school basketball. Not that I think I could have but I sure would have loved to try. It is kinda sad but now I can only play basketball about once every two weeks because my knees hurt to much and require time to heal. What also is sad is we now have a new Stake building only seven minutes from our house with a full wood floor court (I have been playing on a small carpet gym at church for 15 years) and I am not sure I can even enjoy it very much for obvious reasons.
You all know that we have three beautiful daughters. What you may not know is that I wanted each one to be a boy. Well I didn't get my wish but I did get three great son-in-laws and now have three wonderful grandsons. Thank you Daughters for bringing me these sons.
I have never smoked a cigarette but when I was 15 I did puff on a cigar once and decided it was just a stupid thing to do.
Some people may already know this but I will just post it anyway. My favorite book is The Richest Man in
I only must say this because my wife has crushes on George Srait and Johnny Depp.
I am a fan of Keira Knightley.
I know I was only suppose to post five secrets but I had to do one more. I have always wanted to get to know my sister better but it seemed like she would never let me get to really know her. I now feel like I know my sister and I am so excited about this. She is such a great sister. Thanks Sister for your Love and support. I am a better person because of you.
I don't really know how this tagging thing works but I tag David Herfurth, Austin Lowe, and Enos Heinzen.

There you have it. That was "mama fore she was mama." Not much dirt there, though, huh?
Again, thanks my dear Pooh for letting me play. I tag Nancy Pierce, Amy Herfurth, David George, and I do not know anyone else who does a blog. Sorry, I tag only 3 humans.
