9/11/11, football, acl fest, bastrop fire

POST 9/11/01

this is a photo of the stadium of war memorial stadium in little rock
arkansas as they played their game on saturday
even the hog was red white and blue
nice tribute

this is a photo of my nephew mac nash in his marine dress uniform
during a 9-11-11 weekend ceremony
mac is home on leave and is due to be deployed to afghanistan soon

the american flag he is carrying will be taken with him on his
deployment there soon

my wife she and i would like to thank mac and all those other
military men and women
who are serving our country over seas and at home
thanks mac
may you have a safe journey
our thoughts will always be with you

will always remember where i was at on 9-11-01
i was coming out of a patients room that day when
i heard the stunning news
everything seemed to stop that day
we were all glued to the tv for days seeing videos and listening
to the commentators discussing what was happening
that memory will always be there of that day

thinking of those lost that day
may we not have more of this to deal with

i oded on football this weekend
my two teams i follow the horns and the hogs both
horns tried to lose in the first half but things kicked in good
in the second half-they are using a lot of freshman so should
only get better as the season progresses
tough schedule though for this young team

hogs just flat out dominated the game-nuff said

then there is the other team i follow-the boys in the nfl
was a good game but the ending was a disappointment
this game will come back to haunt them
its a game they may wish they had won

maybe next week will be better for the boys

the acl fest is this weekend
thats the austin city limits music festival featuring over 100 different
dont plan on coming to austin for other things this weekend as you
wont be able to find a place to stay

one of the websites for information is http://lineup.aclfestival.com/

my wife she and son usually buy their tickets on craigs list

top groups are stevie wonder, kanye west, arcade, my morning
jacket, fleet foxes, allison kraus and others
it will be in the mid 90s
no rain of course but if it does enjoy it
the grass at zilker park is is good shape so maybe it wont be a
dust bowl yet
good music
thousands will attend

the bastrop texas fire just south of austin is 50% contained
it has burned over 34000 acres and has burned over 1500 homes
talked to some one who saw the area and said it looked like
the moon or like a nuclear bomb had gone off there

there are 22 people unaccounted for but only 2 confirmed deaths
many of the unaccounted for people may be with friends and
relatives or out of town

that picture of the big old airplane picture that i posted in this blog
last week-well...
it never got used on the bastrop fire
it sat at the airport for several days then when it took off
it went to another fire near houston texas
the bastrop fire is the worst fire ever in texas
could have used those plane drops of water
to slow this down last week

maybe there will be explanations only good ones please not
excuses for some of the delays that occurred in fighting this
destructive fire

we need rain please
or the first wind that blows here will restart all of this
its drier here now than the dust bowl from the 30s

may your week be a better one
