Sorry, I couldn’t resist a little Kris Kristofferson here in Houston, Texas, today.
After a cold start, the day’s likely to heat up to just shy of 80. Not sure what Mother Nature’s doing in Northeast Mississippi but it can’t be this balmy. My hairspray is getting a workout.
Got here with the Grandpuppy about 7 p.m. Friday after a long ride from Tupelo. Thanks to my friend Pamela and the massive, 16 1/2 hour audiobook set of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” Great, complicated story. Should serve me well on the way back, whenever that is.
Of course, I’m in Texas to cover what’s next with the Stanford trial. Expect former CFO James M. Davis to take the stand, but not immediately Monday. Two others are on tap, so I’ll be reporting that likely crazy on DJournal.com. Click on our Stanford Trial News icon for more. I’ll also have daily coverage in the Daily Journal. I’ll do my best to give you the nitty-gritty backstage info you can’t get anywhere else.
Meanwhile, went to see the King Tut exhibit at the Houston Museum of Fine Art. It was lovely but not as expansive as the related exhibit I saw in New Orleans back in the 1970s. Perhaps one of the most fascinating pieces in the Houston show is a massive stone statue head of Tut’s strange monotheistic father, Akhenaten, also known as Amenhotep IV.
Stick with me, readers, and I’ll do my best to tell you some interesting stuff from here.
Yee-Haw! … patsy
