Quick update from Texas

September 13th, 2008 at at 2:32 pm by Brian

Hey everyone

I didn’t have time before I left to post the plans and I haven’t had enough time here for all of the details, but I’m down here in Texas for the month of September to help my parents with house repairs and medical/legal stuff (Dad was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s last year).

First, I want to apologize to the folks who had posted comments to the “Pink Ribbons” post who didn’t see their comments show up for quite awhile. Computer problems, travel, and Texas insanity kept me away from the site & the comment approval panel. I’ll be responding to you guys later (hopefully tonight) and sending emails to the late approvals too.

Also, quick apology to the people who had commented before those folks and I still haven’t responded too – I think that was right about when the computer problems started. It’s been a wild couple of months in Moondoggieland.

Last thing – I’m in West Texas, but do have relatives in the Houston area who we’re keeping an ear out for. They have voicemails, texts and emails waiting for them whenever they can access stuff, so now they have a blog post too. Jaz, Sydney, Chase, David and everyone else – we’re hoping you’re all safe and sending our love, both from Odessa & Connecticut.

We’re watching the hurricane coverage on DirecTV’s apparently ultra-PC channel 361 and wondering what the difference is between “scavenging” and “looting.” I have two theories. 1) If someone has something that doesn’t belong to them and is running from the cameras, they’re looters. If they’re walking, they’re scavengers. 2) Looters steal things from buildings, scavengers steal things from rubble.

This just in – got a text from Jaz – they had a tree crash through their backyard and lost power around 6AM, but are all okay.

    Hey there-

    Tom Whiteside here. We emailed on MySpace once or twice. I’m Sherry Talley’s godson.

    What part of Tejas are you in? I’m from Lubbock, and Sherry of course lives in San Angelo. I live in Austin now, but just wanted to see where and when you’d be around.

    Hope you’re well.

    PS- I work at Planet Cancer now; you came to a couples’ retreat a while back, right?

    I think your blog is great, and I would like to feature you on the new
    Wellsphere. We feature only the best health bloggers on our WellPages,
    which are special pages that our Health Knowledge Engine crafts to give
    our users answers to their health questions. We would feature you on all
    the pages on topics that our knowledge engine finds are related to your
