Giddy Up

There is a lot going on. The Houston Livestock and Rodeo is in town, and remember when I told you that my car makes me smile? Well now I am downright giddy.

Linda and I were walking down past the old saloon when all of the sudden there was dust everywhere and a lone guitar twanged in the distance signifying something significant was about to happen. The guttural sound turned into a roar like the noise a 300hp V8 would make if it were to be let loose rounding a corner. I had to think fast, convertible - check, GT - check, automatic - check, heated seats (hey, it can get nippy out here on the plains) - check! I made my move and lassoed that Mustang. Can I keep it Linda? Can I? Can I?

So now when I pass by the same trees and small imports, my smile is a little wider, my foot a little heavier and life is even better.

Hello there !

I know it's been a long time between posts. No, we were not involved in a nuclear accident and all of our fingers are sill attached to our hands . . . . in fact . . . . . Katie is using hers this weekend to perform at the Texas Music Education Association state convention this week. Remember several months back we announced that she was among the best HS bass players in the state? Well, this week they (all the best musicians) gathered in San Antonio to me, practice, play and buy merchandise. She went west on Wednesday with the other kids in her region (including, band and chorus) on a charter bus.

We will be joining her this weekend to hear concerts, gush over our offspring and buy merchandise. I would post a picture of the tearful departure but it's on the camera Katie took with her so you will have to wait until she gets back for the visual proof.

. . . As promised, here is a picture of us after the concert. Katie had a great time, met some new friends and hung out with some old ones. She is getting to be an old pro.
