    Nice one. This is also a true story. There is town between Houston and Austin named Elgin. My wife (who is an artist and a professor of art and art history) and I were driving through Elgin one morning when I remarked that there was a famous glass blowing workshop in the town. "Really?" asked my wife. "I've never heard of it." "Oh yes," I replied. In fact they're world famous and known to be highly controversial."

  3. Last time I saw her was in Seabrook, TX. She had been a fixture on Galveston Bay for several years and was last owned buy a Dutch engineer as far as I know. I don't know if she survived Hurricane Ike. Perhaps d'ranger can answer.
  4. Crews were able to refill the MUD district's water tank, so we were able to turn the water back on. I did finally get to have a hot shower. Power is currently on. Fingers crossed that it stays on tonight. That is supposed to be the last of the really hard freezes.

    The guy on the right looks a like Joe Pesci. Would that make those the three wise guys?
  11. Ah sounds like good times. Definitely not the boat I was thinking of.
  12. D. Did you sail W.P. or was it someone else?
  13. It hardly belongs in this august company, but here is my own small effort.
  14. There was one in Texas in the late 90s. I ran into it on Lake Waco, but it was from Dallas or Canyon Lake. Don't remember which.
