I went to pick up one item at The Container Store on Post Oak and six items later and one pair of shoes later from DSW I was on my way. Thank goodness I didn't go into Sports Authority.
As I returned to my car, I noticed this illusion of the clouds in front of the BBVA Compass building being reflected into the mirror exterior even though there were clouds behind it.

The timing was odd.
We were at Mt. Olivet Cemetery. My brother was inside purchasing some flowers to leave at my father's grave for Father's Day. I was in the car with my mom listening to NPR. I received a message alert from KPRC that Casey Kasem had died.
Casey had been in poor health; it was all over the news. His children had entered into a legal battle with Casey's 2nd wife Jean. And as with all things media related, it had turned ugly. Enough about that.
The timing was odd because when I was a kid, I would listen to American Top 40 on Sunday's to find out the #1 song of the week. If I didn't listen to it on a transistor radio, I would listen to it in my parents' car on our way to or from visiting my grandparents.
Casey would always tease the listener before a commercial break with little known facts about an unidentified recording artist. You had stay tuned because if you didn't you would never know who he was talking about.
There are many people within the recording industry that can thank Casey for talking about them on the air and helping them sell records and thank you for keeping me up to date with what was happening in the music industry.
Thank you Casey for the memories.

"Werewolf? There wolf."
The Calvinator was almost out of food. The mix he had been eating is no longer available so I did some research and came up with this as a replacement. The dog on the bag mind of creaks me out.

So the Blue Book isn't really something you can meet; it's a bit misleading. Meet The Blue Book is an event that gathers members of Houston's HIV/AIDS service providers for an evening to gather, network, and honor a colleague.
This year's recipient of the L. Joel Martinez Memorial Award was Charles Henley. Congratulations Charles and thank you and everyone else for the work you do!

It's the little things that make me happy! On Saturday I received a letter that my neighborhood would be receiving the big recycle bins. I've been waiting for this day to arrive and on Monday it happened. I even tweeted my thanks to the Mayor.
