Bumped. - BN Eds.
Since the UH game was put on the schedule, I've been planning on hosting a BN get together in Houston, my home town. I thought I'd do some down home BBQ (low and slow -- not grilling) and drive my neighbors nuts by flying my UCLA flag.
But, Houston is rapidly becoming my ex-home town. We are in the process of packing for a move back to CA. The plan is to live in Sebastopol or somewhere else in West Sonoma County. With my kid at UCSD, and very happy, and the remainder of our family in CA, it's time to come home.
The moving van leaves here on Sept 8, and so do I.
Not convenient to hosting an event. But, if enough people are coming, maybe we can put something together at a restaurant or bar. (Also, there's a BN mainstay who moved to Houston this year. She's had her hands full lately but if there is interest in a get together, I'll call her and see if she and I can pull something together.)
I love Houston. It's a great and diverse city with good people. Other than the current weather, it's a great place to visit -- lots of attractions and some of this country's best restaurants. I'll do whatever I can to advise and help anyone coming in for the game.
And, maybe, if all my packing is done, I'll get to go.
If you're coming, leave a note. If we hit critical mass, we'll try to plan something.
