We've offended the surf gods. . .

The surf has been up in Galveston all week so we made arraignments to go today; we shopped, cleaned the house, Paul and Robin arraigned to get work off. As the week progressed however, the forecast projected worse and worse conditions until yesterday it said, "Friday, flat" Booooo!

The surf was up on Thursday and will be up again Sunday and Monday but Friday and Saturday when we can be there . . . nope. This has left us wondering if we have not given proper homage to the surf gods (we can't help but be a little superstitious) in any case, we had to give up.

not us


So instead of going to Galveston, we are going to mow the lawn, weed the garden and finish getting ready for our party tomorrow night. . . did I tell you we are having a party?

A friend of ours is turning 60 this week. Since I just turned 40, his wife and I, and Robin, planned a 100 year old party. It won't be too fancy but we will have a night with good friends and good food and at least 100 balloons.

You should come!
