We had a brief, but intense hail storm this morning in Houston. I took this picture outside an office building, not far from the office.
Travis and I showed up at about 06:00 for the grand opening of the new Houston Highland Village Apple Store. When we arrived there were about 150 people in line in front of us. The time passed quickly until the exciting opening at 08:00. This is a beautiful store and it’s only a couple of blocks from my office!
Pics of the Day
2011 CreekFest Chalk Artist Festival
Mikie was one of the featured artists and she got tons of positive feedback during the 8 hours that she spent working today. This was a really well-organized event and everyone associated with it was just delightful.
Here are some pics from this morning’s commute:
It’s been an exciting evening at the Willow house. First of all, Mikie found a possum hanging out in a bird-house on the side yard.
Then, shortly after that, we lost all water pressure at the house. Went outside to investigate and saw some emergency vehicles down the block. Found out that the water main for the neighborhood ruptured and they are having to dig up the street to repair it. It’s a work in progress.
Mikie just told me about this cool site. The idea is to post one photograph every day for a year. I just signed up today – it doesn’t cost anything – and have uploaded a couple of pics. On weekdays I’m going to post pics of things I see on my commute to or from work. On weekends, anything goes!.
We stopped by Asian City today. They have a couple of small, inter-connected Koi ponds out front.
Afterwards we went to the Barnes & Noble to enjoy a cup of coffee and browse the new book selection. I made a pit stop in the men’s room and was surprised to find this pile of clothes in the corner of the handicapped stall. Looks like enough clothing for several people. Mikie suggested the rapture might have come late and these were among the chosen ones…
Got in an hour walk first thing this morning. By the time I got back to the house it was already hot outside!
