Today in South Texas, we are celebrating the second day of fantastic weather with the 100 degree and above temps finally cooling off, and mourning the fact that the state is basically scr*wed. Months of drought followed by fires all over and now some 500 families without homes just to the east of us. Bleak times my friends.
If it would just rain, things could get a whole lot better.
Anyone out there who knows a magical spell to summon the skies to open up and pour down, please e-mail me directly.
That said, Labor Day and the fact that at any moment dry bush could spontaneously combust around us had me preoccupied yesterday, so I am only now getting to the Great Monday Give.
Written by one national treasure and illustrated by a Texas one, I am offering up for grabs today a practically brand new 1991 hardcopy of The Adventures of Isabel. All you have to do to be entered to win this dandy of a book is comment on this post between now and Sunday, September 11 at 11:59 PM. A winner will be selected at random and announced the following morning.
Sooooo, without further depressing news and dates, the winner of the Awesome Mystery Give from two weeks ago is Lisa! Congrats and send me your info to webe(at)soon(dot)com.
Godspeed Bastrop friends.
