- I'm writing this on Monday night while at least I feel adequate. Sickness is no fun. Reminds me of how much we need to cherish our health.
- I kept the TV on in the background a lot on Monday. All I vaguely recall is the Texas Hammer yelling at me.
- Thanks to a lot of folks at the courthouse. They did some schedule juggling for me -- no questions asked. There's something to be said about small towns.
- I did stumble down the stairs this evening (after literally doing it in the morning and almost breaking my toe) to see Mrs. LL watching one of the Twilight movies. Let me tell ya, not bad.
- A Decatur girl wants some "blog love" for some venture of hers. She's read this thing for years so I said OK.
- Had someone chastise me for joking about contracting the West Nile disease.
- There was a time when I thought there was no way Facebook would fail. Now I'm not so sure. Between games and "inspirational graphics", that thing has turned into a beating.
- Five children were killed in Van Zandt yesterday after an auto wreck. Twelve people were in the Envoy - ten of them children. I've owned an Envoy. Twelve people cannot fit in one.
- Hadn't thought about Phyllis Diller, who died yesterday, in years.
- The great Ken Burns is releasing a two part documentary, The Dust Bowl, in November. I'm there.
- It looks like Rep. Todd Akin was in a room full of friends one second and the next second looked up and said, "Hey, where'd everybody go?"
- Augusta National invited two women to join the club yesterday: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Darla Moore. I had never heard of Moore but learned that she's the wife of Fort Worth billionaire Richard Rainwater. I also learned that Rainwater is very ill and requires 24 hour care.
- The Top Gun director who jumped to his death over the weekend had inoperable brain cancer. He simply was not going to go through that.
