We're going to drive down to Rockport (about 2.5-3 hrs.) for the Seafair, Mamie:
.. then back to H-Town for dinner at Rudi Lechner's (it's Oktoberfest, and they have polkas and brats and Hefe Weizens):
Hey famerdude, our Renfest starts this weekend but we won't go 'til the weather gets cooler (and the elections are done):
I love this time of year because of all the great festivals. Last weekend we went to the Turkish festival. The Greek festival was postponed because of that lousy bastard Ike, but I still managed to fill my tummy with lamb gyro and baklava and my eyes with those beautiful exotic dark-eyed, dark-haired women.
(Thank goodness my wife is OK with my being a pig. I just try not to red-line her tolerance meter.)
