EVERY SINGLE MIZZOU GAME I WATCHED ON TV OR IN COLUMBIA, THE TIGERS LOST. Every single game that I missed MIZZOU won. I'm afraid that I'm bad luck for the University of Missouri...

Last Saturday Mom visited a Methodist Church in a bad neighborhood of Kileen and in the 1st 15 minutes she was in the Church someone busted out her window and stole her purse. They didn't get her home keys or cell phone, but they did get her cash, credit cards, work keys, etc. She has already cancelled everything. I don't like her living out in the country by herself. Tif & I are leaving early Wednesday morning. Tif's Mom is sending some Pumpkin Bread with us and Tif is making some Gooey Butter Cake. We may go to the Dallas Zoo or Botanical Garden while we are there. I really miss my friends at the Bookstore.

My Mom attended the Memorial Service at Ft. Hood yesterday to honor the victims of the shooting. She left at 9:30am and got back to the ranch at 4:30. Most of that time was getting onto and off of the post. Security was high because of our President attending. Mom just told me that the lady that sang AMAZING GRACE at the Ceremony was the same lady that sang at my Father's funeral. I watched the highlights on the news but I didn't see Mom...
Prime Minister: "Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaking suspicion... love actually is all around.
