    Excellent doctor. Hate to lose him, but I can't blame him.
    Basically west of the Med Center, near the western side of the 610 loop, but south of US-59.

    He still might stay in the Houston area. There's a lot of areas that didn't flood. Or he could just raise his house. That area probably isn't controlled by a bunch of damn HOA Nazis who try to prevent you from doing anything on your house.

    We are under warnings for the sewer as well. The flooding has gotten higher and about a mile closer to the house.
    On every question of construction let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.

    Hey Charles. It's good to see that you made it. I sent you a message a few days ago checking on you.
    I'll be heading back to Houston tomorrow. There are enough open roads that I can make it now. I'll just have to take a few different routs to get back to my RV.
    If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.

    Most definitely. I was out riding my Harley around yesterday and could smell quite a few places where people were doing some grilling / BBQing. And this was in areas where they were dry and had not lost power for any length of time, so it's not like they *had* to cook the meat to keep it from spoiling.

    This was not the first time Houston has flooded and it won't be the last. We will dry out and be back to normal. It's just what we do.

    That place is a complete tourist trap. And I wasn't impressed w/ the quality of the food. I share your sentiment on life. But there is a lot better barbecue in Texas.

    When I was last there, they had some pretty spicy jalapenos and I was impressed with them. But yeah, there are better BBQ joints around, but very few where you can bring your own cooler of beer to drink while waiting for a table.

    But I was mainly just looking for a photo that best illustrated BBQing of copious quantities of meat in Texas.

    This one wouldn't have cut it:

    My experience with eating BBQed gator was that it tasted kind of like chicken -- at least chicken that had been marinated in moldy swamp water...

    Of course, with Hurricane Irma headed to Florida, it's time for some BBQed iguana...

    It tastes like a chicken w/ the texture of a rubber chicken. Not bad but not very good either.
