    We got hit by a particularly nasty storm while living in Euless. Lighting hit the building, etc. What really scared me about there vs. Indiana: No basements.

    Went north and south of us... moving FAST... south being Waxahatchie, Cleburn, Duncanville, Cedar Hill. I'm on the north side of Ft Worth (near Cabelas) and a strong cell went thru Keller and Roanoke.

    Anyway... I appreciate y'all keeping us in your thoughts! I hope everybody down south keeps safe. and Stravinski is right, May storms are wicked in TX/OK/KS. Evil.

    Now, where's that pipe and Dr Pepper???

    Ah, yes. HEB. Or the Mid-Cities, right? A long time ago for me, too.

    Thanks to FnB, I'm smoking MacBaren Plum Cake in a 1975 medium bend sandblasted looking, smooth on the sides yellow Pioneer meer. Ice tea for a drink. Vin's three innings on radio are over, so Charlie Steiner and Rick Monday are doing the radio work the rest of the way, with the Dodgers leading the Nats 2-1 in the 4th inning. Red Sox win big, Yankees and Giants wish they stayed in bed - losing 12-2 and 11-3 respectively. The Braves lost again (they are not pitching well), and the Pirates beat the Brewers.

    Mid-Cities is correct sir! I doubt you'd recognize those places now.

    As a Cubs fan, I can never hear Rick Monday's name without thinking of the American flag.

    And I think the Cubs lost that game . . .

    Evening, folks. Astley's 44 in a magic Dunhill Shell Briar. Tastes like honey.

    Wrote a piece for the paper and it didn't get published due to a layout nightmare. My poor friend, the editor, had a hell of a rough time of it this week, I do believe. Whatever, no big deal. 960 measly words, and I thought the thing was rather porous anyway. We'll get 'em next time.

    On perhaps an overly personal note: May 15 is always the longest day of the year for me--the anniversary of Mom's death. Thanks(!) to you all for helping me to pass the night very pleasantly, and in such good company.

    Edit: Somewhat relevant Mom story: When I told her I was applying to grad school. One of the first things she said to me: "Well, I bet you'll start smoking a pipe now."
