Apr 21, 2012 - Football Game

We were off and running by about 8:15 am to get to a football game. Unfortunately, the GPS led us astray and we wandered over a good deal of northwest Houston before finally arriving just as the game started. Our guys won, 34 to 0. I really felt sorry for the losing team—they only had about 14 or 15 boys on the team while our Bengals were able to field completely separate offense and defense teams. Home to grill burgers and collapse for the afternoon.

Apr 20, 2012 - Thunderstorms and Bicycles

We had a leisurely day until 3:00 pm when the deluge started. I remembered my daughter-in-law, Lynne, saying something about picking the boys up at school when the weather was bad, and this was way beyond that. Thunder, lightning, and rain that was blowing sidewise so hard that I was drenched to the skin just getting to the car even with an umbrella. It is only three blocks to the school, but the traffic was so heavy (all these moms picking up their kids) that it took a solid hour to inch my way down the street, around the corner, and to...

Apr 19, 2012 - Baby-Sitting

We are now in the midst of babysitting for the triplets—although at nine years old, “babysitting” hardly seems an appropriate term. They are very independent young men: they ride their bikes to school on their own, they remind their addled grandmother when she forgets to make a lunch for them, and they supply her with all sorts of “where is whatever” information. The parents are off on a three-day combination sales conference (for Al) and vacation (for both of them) in San Antonio. Hope they're finding time to stroll along the river walk...

Feb 19, 2010 - Cypress, Texas

2/16 Cypress, Texas It took 3 days to get here. One night we spent at Walmart in El Paso,TX the second night at a roadside rest and the third night at Walmart in San Antonio,TX. Tonight we are parked in Jan’s driveway for a week. It is so good to see her again. I miss her so much and our morning coffee together and walks with the dogs. She looked great, never seems to age (wish I could say that about myself). George has been very sick; he has Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, and heart disease and lots more. He has declined since we saw him last and...
