THREAD 1) If you’ve wondered, THIS is where the trash you see on the street ends up. It doesn’t just disappear. Rain washes it down stormwater drains, which typically feed in the bayou (#BuffaloBayou in this instance). Our waterways shouldn’t be trash heaps. #KHOU11 #HTownRush
2) Just a few feet from that waste puddle, filtered stormwater cascades over rocks to reach #BuffaloBayou. #KHOU11 #HTownRush
3) In the sandbar next to that stream, the stones tell part of #Houston’s history. You have Pleistocene-era sandstone, older oyster shell-concrete and the modern concrete mix, which uses gravel. #KHOU11 #HTownRush

So ... I have been planning something a very long time that I haven't shared here - it used to feel like a silly dream, but now it's my retirement plan. I'm buying land and building a home - with no loans. Lemme tell u-this scheme has taken some dedication, discipline, and magic.
I've "owned" 2 homes b4 in my life - I lost both during times that coincided w housing market problems and break ups w my children's fathers - they were both heart aches to lose. I can barely talk about it.
The first home that I bought was built for Frank Phillips of the u know big Phillips Oil Corp - it was built in the 20s and had a speakeasy built into the basement ... it was like a small castle, stunning w wood floors and amazing architectural features - huge corner lot

I was eight when I learned the word ‘shrapnel.’

Our teacher told us that someone had brought a gun to Thurston High School. And gone to the cafeteria. And started shooting. She looked extremely sad, but her teachers’ aid looked sadder.

Her son went to Thurston.
She was crying, and told us that she would have to leave to go to the hospital. “He’s going to be OK,” she told us through tears, “it was just shrapnel.” And then she left.
Shrapnel is when something explodes, I told my mom later. It's when a bullet breaks apart and some of it hits you.
