2015.06.08-12: Galveston Vacation

The last photo we took in Galveston (Copyright © 2015 by Wil C. Fry. Some rights reserved.)   In the middle of M’s 17-day stretch of paid leave, we took a five-day jaunt to Galveston, having enjoyed last year’s trip to Corpus Christi Bay so much. M booked the hotel back in February when she[…]

Cold all day (21-37°F), windy, cloudy. No precip. RnB played well with their toys. BW’s favorite game is “chase”, in which he runs away from RL — or anyone else who will chase him — and then occasionally turns around to tackle whomever is chasing him. Lunch: pancakes, sausage, eggs Afternoon: solo grocery trip Supper:[…]

2014.11.11.TU: Day Trip to Watauga

(Sorry no photos for the past several days. They’re on Flickr, but I’ve been prioritizing my time and haven’t posted any here. Hopefully I’ll do that later today. It’s probably not a big issue since most of my family was on the road this weekend for my Uncle Gary’s memorial service in South Texas.) For[…]

(UPDATE, 2014.09.26: I’ve edited this entry to include only my daily observations. The full list of known temperatures at my house for 2011 is now on my website.) Finally, the rain! Yesterday afternoon, it finally rained enough for Rebecca to really see, feel, and experience it. And then during the night it began raining again[…]

Birth Certificate

Thursday, I picked up Rebecca’s birth certificate, driving to Temple for the task. Personally, I think the state could do a little better job with this process, since a birth certificate is required for so much later in life. But as I thought about it, I realized they may already be doing it the best[…]

Read About Day 1 Read About Day 2 The next morning, Saturday (July 17), I checked the car and realized that my left front tire was wearing thin. I should have replaced it days earlier in Killeen, but it had simply slipped my mind. Looking at the map of the roads ahead of us, I[…]

Saturday, my wife and I wanted to take a drive to see wildflowers. We initially considered the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center , because we’ve heard so much about it. The Center has an excellent and informative website, which informed us that it would cost $16 (total) for the two of us to enter. That[…]

High School Football in Killeen

Published on: 2009.10.16

Tonight, we saw our first-ever high school football game in Killeen, Texas. For me, it’s been 20 years since I saw a high school game in Texas; my last one was at Smithson Valley High School, in the fall of my senior year. For my wife, it was her first experience of any kind with[…]

Evening Shift

Tonight, my wife begins a short series of evening and night shifts, so it felt like the day was reversed: I was home with her in the morning, but had the evening to myself. A couple of nights this week, she’ll work overnight. Hopefully, she’s young enough to handle it. *** We saw something on[…]

Lights Off

Not long ago, I mentioned that Killeen had a high accident rate (hearsay), and today I found out why. People don’t turn on their headlights when it’s raining. Despite arguments to the contrary, it is state law in Texas, according to the state’s driver manual (.pdf). The manual says you have to have your lights[…]
