Road Trips


Nothing defines a road trip quite like a bag of Cheetos Puffs.

Just a Tease

The draft ..oh my goodness.  Nothing but a tease for what is to come! Football season can’t come quick enough, but until then Ginobili and the Spurs have all of my attention.




Brrr … what to do?

IMG_0898Last week we were freezing.  Another “Ice Storm” we had.   Over the weekend our temperatures reached in excess of 70 degrees.   Now we will freeze again.  This is ridiculous. This is what happens in Texas when it gets cold.  We are not able to function.  We go into a severe depression.   Our electric companies can’t handle the grids from the heat we are pulling.  Our skin dries out.  The schools shut down.   The government offices shut down.  And there is no line at Starbucks.   Why do Texans want their hot coffee when it is in the 90’s but not when it is in the 20’s?   We are spoiled.

Sometimes, you just have to laugh.

Sometimes, that’s all you can do.


Houston On Ice

Reasons why Houston should never have weather below 40 degrees:

My new widget … Kind of New


As a participant in the Zero to Hero challenge my 10th task is to add a widget.   I added the Zero to Hero tag and removed the tag from all of my posts.  I also added a new tag for my blog Every Day in 2014 where I am trying write every day based on the WordPress ebook, 365 Writing Prompts.   I think I may have over-committed myself.   There are so many widgets available that my whole page could be nothing but widgets.   Maybe a theme for another blog …..

What? I’m from Texas.

Does this say I’m married, from Texas and drink a Bud Light on occasion?

Good, that’s me.

Day of the New

Listening to 90s on 9 this morning on the way to the gym sparked some memories.  I remember those club hopping days in Houston when every cover band played this song and the place went crazy.  Years have gone by and my choice of music has changed. I still like the old rock but Third Day, Daughtry, Chris Tomlin, Cassadee Pope and Kelly Clarkson is more my preference these days. But I must admit .. the Bose speakers in the Tahoe got a work out at 5:30 this morning.

Wordless Wednesday


Class Act


We all know Houston needed a change.

Kubiak exits with class, something most people can’t do as they are too busy pointing fingers and blaming others.

Best of Luck Kubiak! Many Houstonians will miss you.

My last game with Kubiak. Houston’s last home game with Kubiak.
