Summer is Over

The Gulf Coast temperatures have lowered a bit and are hovering in the upper 80's low 90's instead of the 100's as in prior weeks. Rain is still a stranger but it gets very close now and then. I did mow today, over the septic drainfield..the rest of the grass is too dead to grow. We can't burn, we can't water so no need to fuss over the grass.

Our trip to the Isle of Capri to see the Beach Boys was fantastic. Our good friends, Skip and Bobbie, from the Hill Country of Texas met us there and we played, ate and laughed the whole time. We did our share of singing too. One thing the Beach Boy group has managed to do is to maintain the "sound" of the "Beach Boys" and to do a tireless and exciting show. What an evening and to be able to share it with friends...PRICELESS.

The plan was for Skip and Bobbie to follow us home to High Island and tour the beach for a bit so they could get back on Saturday night. We got a call about half way home from Lake Charles and our mutual friends Chris and Brenda from East Texas called and they were flying into Houston from a trip to New York and wanted us to meet them near the airport for dinner. To there surprise we had Skip and Bobbie in caravan too. What great timing. We met them at the Saltgrass Steakhouse near the airport and had a great meal, lots of catching up and a genuine good time.

After our catching up session we left heading in almost every direction. Skip & Bobbie to the West, Chris and Brenda to the North and us to the East....with a pledge to gather again soon.

What a full couple of days we all had.
