Something about this "homeless" guy didn't seem right. This is at Mason and Katy Frwy.

I'm Here

I'm still here. It's nearly 3am. Hurricane Ike came in and slapped us around like he did Tina. We were without power for three hellish days. I've come to realize how granted we take power. I know society thrived for thousands of years without electricity but damn! More pictures and stories to come.

Rush Before the Storm

This was shot a Katy-area HEB on Thursday, September 11, 2008. Roughly a day and a half before Hurricane Ike is supposed to hit.

Can Penicillian Help That?

Found at your local Kroger's in the British food section. Couldn't the Brits have found a better name for this?

Dear Discourteous Driver.....


You saw me heading for that gas pump, but yet you sped past me and took that spot. Fortunately for you, I'm not a petty man to start a fight over a gas pump. However, I'm not zen enough to post a picture of your vehicle and tell the whole world that your mother was probably a man. I also hope you have a flat tire in the middle of the highway and nobody stops to help you. You sir, can kiss my butt!!!!!!

Did Kathleen laugh or cry?


I certainly hope Kathleen has a good sense of humor. I can't imagine many women being happy about turning 40. Much less having it advertised on Kingsland Blvd. in Katy.
Should I mention the grammar error in the sign?

Damn!!!!!


I was in the parking lot at work the other day when three antique planes flew overhead. In the time it took for me to find my camera, get it out, turn it on, this was the best shot I could get.

Looks Like a Sonic


Pulling out of the gas station yesterday (my butt felt a little sore after paying) I noticed this building. Aside from the color, it looked like it used to be a sonic-type restaurant at one time.

Someone's Dream House


The builder in my neighborhood started this house a few months ago. For some reason progress has stalled. Today I noticed this damage. I sure hope they get around to fixing it.

Ewwww Graffiti


Some gang graffiti written on a toilet in a Whataburger on Gessner. I shudder to think what this was written with.

Scenes From St. Luke's Hospital


Shot from the roof-top parking garage.

The day surgery waiting room. Setting to about a hundred
personal dramas every day.


The McDonalds restaurant in the hospital.
