Greetings, y'all! I am in San Angelo, Texas for a week visiting my parents. My sister is here, too, making this a rare occasion in which it doesn't run up a long distance bill to have a good family fight. Seriously, though, my mother is cooking and the house smells great.
It's a smallish town (we had to drive 2 hours from the airport to get to town), and there ain't much to do. Is there anybody out there?

Yes honey, we're here. It's just that Texas is so big. I'm in Austin, which isn't just across the river, although there are some who might try to compare the desolation of San Angelo to New Jersey. :-) Just kidding. BTW, what airport did you fly into?

I was so sorry to hear about your friend. :-(
If you come to Austin to say goodbye to your friend and need any help, let me know. You can access my e-mail address from my profile.

Thank you Anna and Tina for your kind words. It has been more relaxing here than I thought possible this past week.
My friends and I went to a western bar. This is no gimick. People were wearing cowboy boots and hats because they serve a purpose here. It was great. I two-stepped and they served 25 cent tap beer, Coors and Bud, thanks very much, in pint cups. They did have Stoli for me, though. Had to dust it off.
Most of the boys are those corn-fed ones that know how to use a tractor, but occasionally you'll get the khaki-wearing oil heir - Steel Magnolia's Jackson.
The girls are all variations of the Dixie Chicks, with a few Mexicans tossed in for color. That goes for the guys, too. It's like being in a country music video all the time!
I found a little something for Mike Ford while I was here, but I'll let him tell.

Thank you and someone else is jumping out of his skin, too. I can hardly wait for you to meet him!
Texas is still something. We were talking about racism here in Tay-has, and she told me something straight out of the movies. Long story short: A black man was found burned in his truck in a parking lot a couple months ago. It was ruled a suicide. Eek
