I'm enjoying Houston. Yesterday, some shopping and a short walk on Galveston beach, then watching my bro-in-law play volleyball and seeing his house that he will soon be leaving even though he and his wife just bought it in December. Today we went to the Space Center. Then a trip to Half-Price books where I bought Henry James' Wings of the Dove, Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale and Frank Herbert's Dune. At Space Center I got a Space Pen! Tonight we're going to see the Astro's play the Washington Nationals. (They're playing the Pirates this weekend, but we're gone then! Tough luck, kid.) Yeah, it's quite hot here.
