Headed Home to Houston

August 20, 2008

I am in need of a much needed break from work.  What better way to relax than with a few margaritas and a good plate of homemade enchiladas.   Not sure what the next six days will bring, but I am looking forward to seeing the family and catching up with some friends.  I gotta go […]

Not a Drop of Rain

August 19, 2008

Mother Nature is a funny beast.  All weekend the path of Fay was projected to give my area a direct hit.  As a result I stocked up on enough bottle water to last me a month.  I spent all day Monday tracking the storm and was ready for the worst.  I completely expected to wake […]

Tropical Storm Fay Heading This Way

August 17, 2008

Olympic Glory

August 9, 2008

Actually yesterday was the 8th of August and the official opening day of the 2008 Olympics, but I was stuck at work until 8pm yesterday and had no desire to go anywhere near a computer when I got home. Every four years the USA gets to show the world its dominance in everything.  I am […]

Weekend Recap: Me and Gilligan

August 3, 2008

My buddy Arkansas came to visit for the weekend and there were plenty of items on the agenda. FRIDAY After running a few errands and a quick bite to eat and short conversation with Dick VItale at the Broken Egg, we headed for the marina to get ready for our fishing excursion.  We paid our […]
