Hurricane Gustav is churning around in the Gulf of Mexico, and I worry about what's going to happen to Louisiana and the rest of the Gulf coast. If New Orleans goes under again, can it possibly come back a second time? Robert Skinner, mystery writer friend, finally got out of his FEMA trailer and back into his house last December. And now this. How much can people take?
Here in Alvin, big things are happening. Judy and I will be going to Austin on Thursday. Not because of the hurricane, however. Our daughter, Angela, is getting married there on Saturday. I'm not too sure about being the father of the bride. Speaking in front of large crowds doesn't bother me at all, but the idea of walking down the aisle with my daughter on my arm scares me a lot. I'm too old and emotional for that kind of thing. One of the groomsmen is in New Orleans. Will he be at the wedding? I have my doubts. This should be an interesting experience for all concerned.
