Sunday in Houston: Revival Market

Breaking from the Epic Eastern Journey of 2012 to talk about Houston, because who else is going to talk about Houston? We get no respect. EVEN THOUGH half the country is moving here because, ca-ching – jobs. I’ve even seen people from Indiana here (according to the license plate). It is my understanding Indianians don’t […]

Sunday in Houston: It is balloon!

Sunday in Houston found us grabbing some Barstuks for chai and Old Town Kolaches for some Sunday breakfast kolache goodness. It’s pronounced co-lah-chee. On the way the queen informed me of a sighting. Yes, a sighting. These days such a sighting is rare. As such, it was imperative to grab a camera and document the […]

Sunday in Houston: Bagels

We interrupt the epic road trip out west for a Sunday Houston post. Just because you take a mega trip doesn’t mean the home stuff ceases to exist. Today we talk about bagels. I do not consider myself a ‘foodie’. I like food, but the sophistication of my palate would rival a 10 year old, […]

That’s the only way to describe the heat that has enveloped Texas this summer. I’ve wanted to blog but upon arriving home, all I want to do is eat ice cream and sit in front of 100 fans. Our house is old-ish and the insulation is way thin. I guess we need to fix that. […]

Ok, once again, it’s a Sunday in Houston post and it’s not Sunday. But, these pics were taken on a Sunday. Ergo, there ya go. Earlier this year, these statues, which reside at the west end of Allen Parkway, were unveiled. This always reminds me of the George Carlin observation wondering why we drive on […]

Let me take you back to the thrilling days of yesteryear – 1986 to be exact. At the time I lived with a guy who would, a year later, become my husband. Yeah, that didn’t work out too good. But, we were having a lot of fun – at the time. We had season tickets […]

Sunday in Houston: Op art at the MFA

Ok, so today is Tuesday, not Sunday. You know this because you’re paying attention. Unless, of course, you think it’s Monday because somehow you’ve lost a day or you think it’s Wednesday because you really want it to be Friday, and Wednesday is closer to Friday than Tuesday. If that’s the case, then I’m here […]

Sunday in Houston

As promised, a business balloon this Sunday. Not just any balloon, a patriotic bunny. Looks like that could have been the flag flying over Fort McHenry. Can you see the rockets red glare? The bombs bursting in air? Holidays and business balloons go together. Like peas and carrots. This bunny was sitting atop the 59 […]

Sunday in Houston: Big, shiny diller

Used to be, in another blog in another time, I did ‘business balloon Sunday’. That’s because, used to be, in another time in Houston, business balloons were everywhere. Houston was the business balloon capital of all creation. And it was good. But then, some wiseacre at city hall decided business balloons were unsightly and lowered […]
