Musings during the Alamo Bowl

Party planning is easier when you have a more solid number of RSVPs - though I am thrilled with the responses so far. The commentators of the Alamo Bowl game (go Cats!) obviously pre-gamed at River Walk ... and it seems to be wearing off here in the 4th quarter Families that lose children of any age are incredibly strong. Please pray for their continued strength Friends who can buy you shoes from many states away deserve massive kudos. Je souhaite mes amis francais une Bonne Annee! Not having to wear a jacket in late December is an interesting weather phenomena Wednesday is going to rock. my. socks off. Distant friends who make an effort to be in touch are some of the best friends I'll ever have I hope that the Jets are supposed to be my football disappointment of the week.

I'm going to try to get up the long lost pictures on Facebook tonight and then I'll do a bit of photoblogging before my next countdown item. Just loved this quote from my scroll today: "Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten." ~ B. F. Skinner This reminds me of Skinner, which reminds me of the X-Files, which
