2008 version is here.

In the picture above, to the right of the picnic table are two trees and a sign. You can barely make out a horizontal line, that's the railing for the steps that are suppose to lead down to the docks. You can see one dock out of the water to the right of the rails. The lattice at the far right is the fish house, its used to clean fish and at the time of the picture had a few inches of water in it. You can see how high the water was by the debris in the parking lot. You may need to click on the picture to enlarge it and see everything.
The picture below is from our trip to Lake Texoma in April. You can see the same fish house in the center of the photograph, and the steps that were attached to the railing. The water level is where the vehicles are at. The docks we were on are now behind the fish house and part of the dock is what you can see in the top picture that has buckled.
Other than the high water and sunburn, we had a great time. I'll post a few more pictures the rest of the week.

Also taking the oath of office (again) was Mr. Jack Jones. Mr. Jones is my Council Member, and ran unopposed in the last election. He has served on the Council since 1988 except for one 4 year period.
I did learn something new at the meeting, that directly relates to my day job (the one that pays).
My position at work deals with negotiating leases for space on communications towers for antennas. In order to be able to place antennas on towers or on rooftops, we have to get building permits or Specific Use Permits (SUP) from City or County governments. I don't submit for the permits or have to appear before any boards, but I do have to track the progress and report the status to our higher ups.
At the Council meeting there was a public hearing and then a discussion about a request for a Specific Use Permit for a company that is looking to do business in Terrell. The next time I ask for the status of a permit or SUP from a field tech, I will not get aggravated when they say there was no action taken. I found out last night, its not something that's done quickly. With almost every answer there is a new question.
Have y'all been following Astro_Mike on twitter? Its astronaut Mike Massimino sending down tweets from the space shuttle. Here is one of his messages from yesterday: From orbit: Listening to Sting on my ipod watching the world go by – literally. How cool is that?
I don't live very far from City Hall so I walk up there and back. On my way home. I saw a car coming up the street and turn on the street I was going to be walking down. It was a nice night and they had their windows down. Just after turning, I heard a ladies voice say "stop". I thought she was talking to me so I stopped. I was on the sidewalk and then saw the car stop. I was about even with the back bumper. I started walking again and when I got even with the window, I heard the lady in the passenger seat say "you didn't turn on your turn indicator, you have to signal before turning". I smiled and kept on walking. The car started moving again and as it passed me I heard "turn on your right turn signal" thankfully the young kid did as he was told. When the car reached the stop sign that was ahead of it, it sat there FOREVER. Long enough for me to almost catch up to it. I then heard the lady say "now turn to your right....I said right!". I got to the corner and waited for the car to turn, trying not to laugh. Once it got past, I could only wonder is that what my Mother went through while trying to teach me how to drive. My mom used to say she was going home to take a Valium. That was way back in 19 somethingorother.

I love this license plate. This was the van that signed up day riders.
Volunteers lined up to distribute food, supplies and drink.
Terrell Mayor Hal Richards was on hand presenting donations.
He seems to be everywhere.
After getting fuel the bikes are lined up while the riders took a break.

This is a group shot of the cancer survivors in attendance.
This guy's name is Andrew, he raised the most
money for an individual, raising over $5000.
He's only 6 years old, and a survivor.
College Mount United Methodist Church raised the most
money for a group.
Cancer survivors start the first lap in the you tube clip below.

I am not sure what the goal was when the season started, and getting swept in the first round of the playoffs is not the way you want to end your season, but, I would guess everyone is proud of the teams accomplishment's this year. Coach Rush did an excellent job. The seniors were able to go out on a playoff team, and the underclassmen have something to build on next year. I am ready for 2010. I love daytime baseball.

Congratulations to the Panthers and good luck the rest of the way.

Don't forget, the Terrell Tigers take on the Midway Panthers in game one of their best of three playoff Thursday night in Waco. If anyone wants to text or tweet updates, send me an email. Or you can add me on Facebook using the link to the right.
The Forney Jackrabbits will take on the Waxahachie Indians also on Thursday night in Forney. Game time is 7pm. That's probably the game I will be able to got to. Forney will will be playing under an interim head coach after Coach Boxley resigned last week.
Waxahachie has one of the best High School players in the country in Colton Cain. He is listed by Rivals.com as the #23 high school player. Hopefully, I will get a chance to watch him pitch. He is a lefty like me.
