I know there are other cities that pride themselves on their weirdness (Asheville, NC, and Portland, OR, at least), but Austin Texas has a special place in my heart since i have 2 grown children who are raising their families there..... "Keep Au... Read more

My knee ached when I woke up this morning, so I may have overdone it yesterday.... I didn't INTEND to, but sometimes it happens. Every week I attend Bible Study Fellowship, an international non-denominational Bible study that has around 140... Read more

Well, that manicure I gave myself yesterday is still working its residual effect on me, and I still feel like the Girly-Girly Pod People may have taken over this body, at least temporarily.... And I got out the old curling iron and actually... Read more

Today started out dreary and dark, and I thought the day was going to be drizzly and wet, but by midmorning the sun had burned away the clouds, and by noon it was a glorious day. But before the darkness had turned to day light bright, I w... Read more

Our minister was sick this morning, and so the day was a little different from the usual, but very satisfying... we had a guest speaker who is a pastor from Moldova, and his talk made me especially grateful for the freedom we have in the US to w... Read more

Black Friday was pretty wild here in Houston, and I hardly got out in it at all.... Since my brother and sis-in-law and I try to take my 95 year old mother out to do the errands that get saved up for us, we really only had one stop at the Contai... Read more

We drove from San Antonio to Houston this afternoon, and Wowsers! The Interstate highway was so packed that it took us close to 4 hours, instead of 2.5 hrs as usual. My goodness! There were some slight collisions, but nothing really bad, th... Read more
