A couple of short notes today then I’m slipping back in to my Nyquil coma. First and most importantly
This is from neighbor Dottie..
“This is serious!!! Val is going in for some SERIOUS heart surgery. She will be in Methodist starting EARLY Tues. morning. Please send an e-mail to everyone to keep her in their prayers and thoughts. The doctors told her to get everything in order so that tells us something, I took some flowers over there this evening and she said it was OK to tell everyone.”
I know I probably don't need to say this but. Saturdays 30th annual gathering is first and foremost a BIRTHDAY PARTY. Say it. Say it again. Say it louder!! What that means is, it's a
POLITICS FREE ZONE.
Anyone found talking politics will be made to eat a bowl of Robs Chili. A second offense and it's Larry Chili. A third offense and we'll give you a bat so you can beat the tongue out of your head to get rid of the smell. That is all.
This from the National Weather Service
Here's an update on the potential for severe weather over the next few days. We expect showers and thunderstorms to develop on Tuesday along a warm front. Heaviest rains and the best chances for flooding Tuesday night will likely be focused over northern and northwestern counties say north and west of a line from Groveton to Huntsville to Brenham although the forecast position of this heavier rain area may shift as we get closer. There will also be an isolated severe wind and tornado threat Tuesday night. On Wednesday, a line of thunderstorms will likely move from west to east across the area...with damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes possible. Stay tuned for updates. -- Dan n Reilly

From the local PTA…
Would you mind spreading the word on the blog about our Bayside Knights on the Run 5K? It is Saturday, Feb 25 at 8:30a.m. and we need sponsorship names for the back of the T-shirt. Any business owners with kids at Stewart, Mossman, Bayside or Falls please consider buying a spot on the shirt for $300. This would be great advertising as the shirts are considered part of the Education Village Uniform and can be worn by all students and extras will be sold in school store. The cost to run or stroll in the 5k is $20 and includes a long sleeve T and misc goodies in the registration bag. You can register at www.signmeup.com or go to
the website at www.bayside5k.com for more info. We are also looking
for businesses to provide coupons, koozies, etc for the registration bags and door prizes. This is our only fundraiser and we really need parents and local businesses to help in any way possible. We appreciate support in any form, no matter how large or small. I am not having much
luck in the sponsorship dept so far. Please contact us with any
questions or ideas. We have registration forms at our houses and hope to leave some at the city office also. Thanks so much.
This from Me. Ya’ll take it easy on J-Bob. He is obviously new to the blog so cool your jets. Jfishing, I say you are new because assuming otherwise would indicate you have chosen to ignore so much info presented here. In two days this blog will be one year old. I have posted 252 times and have received 2,457 comments. Of those I have removed exactly two. One request was from the poster of said comment and the other posted too much personal information about one of your neighbors. If I limited this blog to only people that agree with me I would have killed myself out of boredom 11 ½ months ago. As it turns out Google has a SPAM filter they employ to protect their blogs. For reasons unknown to me your post tripped the trigger and off to SPAM world you went. It happens so infrequently that I rarely check it. When I saw your statement on the premature death of free speech I started poking around. Voila! Have a little faith my brother. I too have served our country in defense of free speech. Wander n back to June of 2011 and I guarantee you will find statements from people who disagree with me. As I have stated before this blog is about the dissemination of information. Not bullshit but pertinent information. Yes. I do get to define Bullshit. Someone has to and it’s my blog. Type on neighbor.
