Well, there's always next year...

OR New Mexico.

First of all, thank you to everyone who had us in your thoughts over Rita. Sorry I haven't blogged for a few days. I've been filling up ( or trying to ) my brain with Physiology and man, after having graduated from medical school 4 years ago, and not having practised medicine for almost 2 years, things get a little rusty.

But back to the matter at hand.



Abilene was hosting its Big Country Balloon Fest the past few days, which got me terribly excited because I had never been in a hot air balloon or seen one up close. And one of the attractions was tethered ballon flights.

So, I was really disappointed that during the few days that the festival was held, I didn't even see ONE, because of non cooperative weather ( i.e. windy conditions - hey, the fall and spring seasons in Abilene are real gusty, what WERE they thinking.. ).

Well, at least now I'll have an excuse to bug David into bringing me to New Mexico for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta that's starting end of this month..

Letti,

Thank you for stopping by The Cynosural Blog and sympathizing on my debugging woes.

From your post, it looks like you weren't affected by Rita. I have some friends in the Houston area, and we're waiting to here from them.

BTW, our server is hosted in Austin. The server farm doesn't seem to have been bothered by the weather either.

When you get a chance, bug David to bring you balooning in Napa Valley. :-)

yay! Finally! You're going to love the Balloon Fiesta. It's the biggest one in the nation. I'm sure you're going to love it and the temperatures will be nice and cool for ya.

If you get a chance eat at Garduno's. They have the some of the best New Mexican cuisine in town.

Make sure you get there really really early. The traffic is murder.
