I got an email from one of the readers concerned about me and Hurricane Ike. No, I’m nowhere near the huge hurricane, though I do have some friends who are in the area. At least one of them is pretty much directly in the path of the hurricane, and he decided to stay home. I talked with him a few times yesterday.
Over on the Texas-Mexico border, there is not a single drop of rain, so life is going on as normal. We had a middle school football game on Thursday, a high school game last night, and I have a couple of mariachi gigs this weekend (both outside).
I also have some family members in the Houston area and I haven’t heard from them. Thank ytou to everyone who was thinking of me, though!
