My excite-o-meter doesn't really move for the first one either, but if you liked it, great.

No bugger filmed it for you? :cry:


An afternoon of hot sun, 7.5% strength beer and stomachs unlined with food rendered such attention to detail impossible I'm afraid :D

Well, it was the first time I ever submitted a correction and it concerned the state I live in. The journalist got the capital wrong as well as the county in which the capital is located.

I just stabbed myself quite badly by sitting down with a pen in my pocket. I don't know if I'm going to die of ink poisoning now, or shame.
My epitaph, please

Hopefully it wasn't a fountain pen. Everyone will know!

I had a plate of cornflakes today. First food since Saturday morning.

Food poisoning, meal on plane home likely culprit. Only thing that fits the timeline. Sick as a dog as soon as I got in the door. Two days in bed, mostly sleeping, only water. Still don't feel like eating. Doing wonders for my figure.

Just a gag from Seinfeld. He's in a small grocery store looking at cereal, picks up a box of cornflakes and asks the Asian proprietor: " Do you have these in the puffs?" The grocer adamantly replies: "No puffs! Just flakes!"

I assume you're aware of bowls...

Never watched Seinfeld as it bounced around the schedules and didn't have a steady time slot.

Yes, I'm aware of bowls.

I assume you are aware of local colloquialisms?

Maybe you'll take a trip this way soon? Would be good to see you!


I want to see you guys too and hang out in Austin. I may move to the Austin area next year when I retire or some time after I retire depending on many factors. I have a cousin who lives in Georgetown and my uncle (her dad) lived to in Round Rock for a while. My brother is in the process of building a house in southern New Braunfels. He currently lives near there on the north side of San Antonio. So I have some family for support if I want it. The question is, do I want to live that close to family? I've been away from everyone for so long that it would feel weird to be closer. I know that it sounds like I'm conflicted and you'd be right. I've been 2,000 miles away from my family for over thirty years so while I believe in family and all the give and take that entails but I'm out of practice. I think my family is expecting me to move back to Texas soon after retiring. It would be a good decision for financial reasons as well as the familial support I memtioned. I'm more concerned about being surrounded by people who don't have my political outlook. Of course the flipsIde is, move here and increase your numbers in an area dominated by the opposition. I'm not used to thinking like that but these days are made for such thoughts.

So I will probably be making a reconnaissance trip in the near future. If there is any relocation info you want to pass on, please do.


Well, you would certainly be around like minded people in Austin!


That's very true. For me, the issue wouldn't be my family, it would be the heat, which is relentless from about now through Halloween. If I were more motivated, I would figure out a way to get rich and do a Doug Sahm and split town for five months a year.

It's not as cheap as it once was (even San Antonio and the I-35 corridor is getting more pricey), but surely money would go further down here than in California. Actually, San Antonio has been going through sort of a bourgeoisie rebirth, with better restaurants and that sort of thing. It might be a good option.

Let us know if you have any recon questions and the like!
