All kneel. Eric Clapton. The rock god is 67 years young today. Rock on.
And the Great State of Texas was readmitted to the union on this day in 1870.
Most of you adults out there remember the song “On the Cover of Rollin’ Stone” by Dr. Hook. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ux3-a9RE1Q
It’s running through my head….I made the front page of the Galveston Daily News!
A new neighbor is in the market for a boat slip. If you are interested drop me a line and I’ll introduce you.
This is from our friends in Kemah:
SOS For ALS
This event is aimed at raising money for ALS research to help the Greater Houston Chapter of the ALS Association, ALS commonly reffered to as Lou Gerihg's disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually lead to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. So, Come out and enjoy a challenging work out in a team (partner) setting and a great post WOD Party with some live music, vendors, and the Kemah Boardwalk with all its activities! The WOD is tough, but doable for everyone, there are two groups scaled and RX... teams can be Male, Female, or a mix... FOCUS is on community and raising awareness for a great cause!
Speaking of Kemah, one of our neighbors got in trouble over there last week. It cost her a lot of money for not driving her buggie just like you would drive your car. No rolling stop signs!
Here’s next weeks agenda.
