So the Houston Club decided they wanted to try an "Invade a small town day" and I decided on a town that also had a festival as well to add to the things we could do. Our first out of town trip had 4 smarties show up with a total of 9 people.
We met at Sam'd deli diner out on Pin Oak Rd and I-10 to caravan to Halletsville, TX. Started at 6:00 am to meet up at 7:00 and headed out around 7:30 ish.…Continue
Well, I may be entering middle age faster than previously thought, I forgot to post a blog about the August Meet & Greet for our club. Thanks for the reminder Gus.

We met up at the brewery around 11:00am but for me it was more like 11:30 due to the I-10 road construction. 3 smarties showed up and unbeknownst to us, a fourth and new member who was attending for the first time.

The Monday before the event we were finally able to get time off, so I sent off our registration and booked our hotel. We packed our bag and left Thursday evening around 8:30 pm and stayed in Dallas…Continue
It was a dark and foggy night. I just got in my car to go home from my sister-in-law's house. Two stop signs away, there was an open field where the high powered electrical lines ran through the neighborhood; the fog seemed thicker than pea soup on a frozen lake there. From that second stop sign, it couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 houses to reach the field but I managed to get the car up to a cool 30 mph.
Out of the corner of my eye, a flash of white fur comes dashing out…Continue
