Just back from three days in the Houston area. Almost like a vacation - a great concert - Steely Dan PLUS Michael McDonald, great friends, an evening cruise on their fabulous sailboat, and just plain flat out fun. On the way home we detoured to look at a furniture store which we thought might have something to go with what we have here... driving right by the old places I used to eat lunch, a block from the old radio station (circa 1990).
More fun: seeing our old neighborhood and even a former neighbor! Her then 12 year old is now a DOCTOR. Time flies.
Houston is one seriously big city. You get used to the pace of Austin and forget... actually, it's pretty darn impressive. It does take a while to get used to the traffic again, though. And distances.
What a show! What a time!
