This is Texas, after all...

The Boss Lady and the kids are driving a hundred miles away to watch a high school football game this afternoon. Seriously. The game is being played in Waco, a hundred miles north of us.

The Boss Lady's niece is in a trumpet player the band and this is her first marching band performance. Plus, the rest of her school's games are played 200-250 miles from here...

The kids are excited to see all of their cousins. And The Talker told me he wants to some "tackling and hittin'!"

Hopefully just not while the band is on the field.



I skipped out on the fun. I had three yards to mow this morning and then I'll be getting ready for company in case Gutsav makes it to Texas.

Right after I play some PS2 and Wii. And watch some college football. And drink a Dr Pepper or four. And...

Well Gustav was here and has gotten mighty strong on it's way to the US. I hope whereever it hits, which is imminent, it doesn't cause damage and take live.

Have a safe long weekend.
