Things I didn't know

  1. It would be interesting to check the local hospitals around the time you think the window-smash happened, and see if they had anyone show up in the ER needing stitches (and maybe some blood.)

  2. I thought about that, actually. (calling hospitals) — but then I decided that there are far too many of them around the Houston area. I also figure somebody stupid enough to cut himself on safety glass would probably just put a dirty sock or something around the wound.
    Maybe it’ll go septic? Here’s hopin’!

  3. Polimom – FYI, the links you put behind the pictures are to Flickr pages you have marked as “Private” – you need to reclassify the pictures as “Public” if you want people to be able to see them.

  4. First photo: EEK! SNAKE!
    Second photo: the watercolor (and other painting) filters are fun to play with – but except for the large size, it is difficult to tell that it was used. Nice shot, btw – especially the reflections of the trees in the water.
    Third photo: EEK! BLOOD! Actually, just think of how much worse it would have been had it not been safety glass. Especially if a sliver had landed on the drivers seat unnoticed by you (until you “got the point”.)

  5. Sorry to hear about your car. I’ve canoed/kayaked Buffalo Bayou since the mid 90’s and have never had a problem leaving my car parked. May I ask where this bridge is?

  6. Glenn — This particular bridge is on Westheimer Pkwy in George Bush park, towards Katy.
    I can easily see why you would canoe / kayak it. It’s a perfect waterway for that. Unfortunately for me, I’ve kind of nervous about going down there again. Too bad; there was some great hiking down there — this time of year, anyway. I suspect it would be a bit much in the August heat.
