[tcb] Re: PsycoBlooie

The flood on a 300' cliff is because it keeps raining here in Biblical
freaking volumes. Not just rain, I'm talking shake the house for two days
and then a two day break and then even more rain for two days. The ground is
saturated and the water runs on the top and hits my house and comes in
through the concrete footings. I have been shoveling water out the back
door. There was an actual current that you could see running across the
garage floor. Things are still damp. It rained yesterday and is threatening
more today and tomorrow.

I'm still trying to decide about making the drive.

That fire that Sammie is typing about is not quite between me and AR.
It's around Hwy 69 and I travel up hwy 96. And it's moving NW so that's
away from my path. BUT, there is another fire that's at about 1,000
acres now that appears to be right ON hwy 96 north of Jasper around Sam
Rayburn Lake.

Denis, the pic came through on the list. Cool artwork. I'll post it
somewhere too.  http://texasvolksbus.org/psycoblooie/psycoblooie2011.jpg

Does Chad still have the annual live-band party?

Somebody find me a cute 20 ... no, make that 25 year old (so Haggerty
will let her do some of the driving) to make the trip with me. It's
gonna be a longer drive without using the truck to pull. More spots
where I won't be able to hold 60+. Be sure she understands that in a
'70 there's essentially only one bed so she'll have to sleep with the
scary hippie. <grin>

G2 (who is still trying to wrap his head around the idea of flood water
getting over the top of that cliff)
