The one thing that strikes me most about Houston is the apparent lack of zoning. Industrial across the street from residential and commercial on the other side. Up here, you'll never see that. It's funny there are so many hoops to jump through to build something on your own property but they don't seem to have much in the way for zoning regulations.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

i've never known it any other way, and some of it really stinks too.

One of the facilities I used to visit in Houston was a facility where my company re-lined steel tubes with rubber for progressive cavity pumps. The first step in the process was to "burn" the old rubber out of the tubes, essentially by heating it up so that it off-gassed and broke down the adhesive. You can imagine the smell from heating up hi-grade industrial rubber.

What amazed me about the location of the plant is that there's a short stretch of industrial buildings on the street where it is, and behind the building is a big residential neighborhood and behind the buildings across the street is a big residential neighborhood.

had some family that lived in deer park, we went over there and the first thing i asked is what stinks. his answer was i don't smell nothing. he came home with us for a couple weeks and when he went home he said it does stink around here. i'll bet you there are schools close to them too.

Odie, we haven't been to Jasper this year. We went to Tupelo for a Friday/Saturday get away, but we haven't made any other shows or cruise ins this year. Heck, I didn't even go to Berry this time. It's so hard to find a sitter for the grandson we haven't been able to get out and go like we used to. We sure can't take him anywhere like that. We might try to go on the 4th of July weekend, but no promises there, either. I like the little Firebird we have, but it's just not comfortable to me. Hope to get my car going by the fall if I can get this carport finished soon.
