Tuesday, January 16, 2018 – The State is Closed Until Further Notice

To the other 49 states, please note that because of global warming, the state of Texas is closed today due to sleet, snow, ice and well-digger cold temperatures.

Plans call for parts of the state to reopen after midnight. Until then, stay indoors, cover your petunias, and hunker down with the four basic food groups – sweet, salty, alcohol and chocolate.

To my golf friends – don’t forget our tee time Saturday; it will be 67 degrees. I love Texas!

I am calling attention to my blog post from Sunday regarding the PBS programming of Ken Burn’s and Karen Novik’s documentary – The Vietnam War. https://drdrd85.me/2017/09/17/sunday-morning-september-17-2017-vietnam-and-constitution-day/

If you are not watching this series you should be. If you are watching, then you know it is powerful, painful and critically important to watch.
