Hey Gang,

I am in Texas with Walt's family on a 5 day escape. The trip is a graduation present for Walt's son Jimmy. Jimmy graduated from the 8th grade on the honor roll and received a scholarship. For a present Jimmy picked where he wanted to go.

I was a little apprehensive about leaving because of how busy I am but I couldn't disappoint .Jimmy really wanted me to come along plus all the planning Walt put into the trip' I couldn't say no.

The flight to Huston was OK but there were times when the turbulence bounced us around quite a bit and we were delayed from landing because of a storm. We were in a holding pattern until the weather broke. It added an additional 45 minutes to the flight,

On the plane I sat next to a very informed person who said he wasn't that much into politics. Yeah right. He knew more than most people who are informed. His name was Don. He was heading to Peru for business and to visit family who are from there. He was an intern at Bear Stearns during the collapse. I learned quite a bit from him. He likes Ron Paul because he is far right and thinks if Paul is elected he won't be able to implement everything he wants which means Ron will end up closer to right of center rather than far right which is good. Follow that? And Hugo Chavez is a nut and must go.

After the long delay from the storm we landed to what looked like Cleveland weather, I wasn't sure if we even left Hopkins. Dreary sky's, raining and about 70'ish. Then we had another long delay. Walt rented a full size SUV to fit all of us and our luggage. Hertz made a mistake. There wasn't any full size left in their lot. So after some frustration Hertz agreed to give Walt 2 midsize SUV's with one being free.
So that's the lowdown on arriving.

We are staying at Dawn Condos in Galveston. The condo I am in is on the third floor with a nice balcony and a bedroom large with windows that open to a view of the Gulf. What a view! The sound of the ocean and the breeze – heavenly.

That's all for now.
Gotta GoGo!!
