Friday, November 18 - Sure glad we are heading South on 59 and not North into Houston. We witness this scene every morning as we head down 59 to workout at Anytime Fitness. These poor commuters are still about 15 miles from the city just creeping along and frequently stopped in traffic. Each side of the highway is SIX lanes wide. Just crazy!

We get a kick out of watching the morning traffic report. Almost every morning there are extreme delays. We are talking up to a TWO hour delay getting into Houston.



Here are two maps showing the traffic this morning. This one shows all the real-time accidents. The big green circle is I-610. The inner circle is I-10. It is only 6:30 in the morning. Rush hour goes on until 9:30 a.m.

Same time of the morning but this one also shows road work. Put those minus signs (accidents) + the road work signs = A MESS. Actually this morning was rather quiet.

Marsha can publish one of her Christmas gifts. This pine needle cracker basket is for someone who does not read the blog, because she DOESN'T have a computer….what? (I thought everyone had a computer of some sort.) This is Marsha's first attempt to put handles on a basket. Those are walnut slices in the handles. She did not use her nice new long needles. If you look closely, you can see on the rear-side, at the very top the gold "special" pine needle that she got from the sapling that went to the moon. She is pretty happy with her final product.




Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!
