Friday stuff.

Well, here we go again. This one's gonna be short though. Mom's puny, so the dinner tonight will be a Pizza and Beer thing with just Denise and I. We'll head over to Salado so I can get a haircut, drop off my laundry to get pressed in Temple and then head back over here to see a movie. This new thing with Leonardo DiCaprio looks cool. Body of Lies. After that we'll go get some great pie from a wonderful little place here and bring it home. I have better beer here than they sell there, so we'll sit on the couch in our shorts and have a better time.

By the way, speaking of flicks, we saw Miracle At St. Anna a few weeks ago and it was WONDERFUL! You all need to go see it. It's by Spike Lee, so you know it's got a message, but I didn't see anything in there that wasn't true to the way things used to be. Lots of great twists and turns. You'll love it. Check it out.

I went through the paperwork to become a full time Prof at work yesterday and it's gonna be smooth. I'm gonna have to chance to opt out of the Texas teachers retirement system and play with my own fund, but I'm VERY hesitant to do it. My boss and a few of my friends have done that and they all use the same money man, so I can let him do the playin' too. But I'm gonna wait and see how he deals with this current unpleasantness before I make the jump. I have till February, so there's no rush.

This is gonna be a three day weekend, so we'll be relaxing and taking it easy. One thing we plan to do is head down to Florence and do a road trip out to San Saba. I need to find out how long it's gonna take me to get there from my morning classes. There a question in at least a few minds about weather I can make it from Florence between 10:45 and noon. We'll find out for sure, and take the time to check the town out. It's supposed to be really pretty, and a huge hub of pecan growers. I LOVES me some pecans!

Anyway, all is well here. I hope all is well there. So have a great weekend and we'll chat later. Cheers!

I'm a'hopin' to see both them movies. Is Miracle the kind best seen on the big screen?

Chuck - Maybe, if you like the big boom boom of a war movie. Otherwise, there's a lot of character stuff.

And Body Of Lies was EXCELLENT! Don't miss it!
