More Ernest Nunley News ::

This from an anonymous poster earlier this afternoon:

Howdy y'all, it's 4 o'clock Friday afternoon and Ernest left our shop in Austin a little while ago heading out west towards Dripping Springs. Thank you Lord for having our paths cross. He has enriched all of us as I'm sure he does wherever he goes. My heart is happy and I can't remember the last time I had a smile this wide on my face. May his journey be filled with blessings and please give him and his horses safety on their travels.

The Owens Crossroads Volunteer Fire Dept. ::

is currently involved in an on-line competition with seven other volunteer fire departments around the country and the prize will be a much needed pumper truck. You can go to www.e-one.com and vote for the OCR department once per e-mail address.

I visited earlier today and voted once for each of my 2 e-mail addresses and I urge you to do the same. Pumper trucks like this are extremely expensive and Owens Crossroads just doesn't have the money available to make this purchase.

Buying Coffee ::

Actually that's not what I was going to post here, but I was in downtown Huntsville around noon buying some Sumatran Decaf coffee at the Kaffeeklatch (I highly recommend it) and I passed by the courthouse on my way back to work and what did I see on the sidewalk but a guy with a hot dog cart in front of the courthouse. I didn't have the opportunity to stop, but I love the idea of being able to walk out and get a hot dog from a vendor! I would rather buy from someone like this than go to most of the restaurants around the square!

Computer Woes! ::

My modem died over the weekend plus somewhere along the way some seriously bad malware decided to take over my desktop computer so I've been gone for the past few days. I finally got the laptop back up, but I'm still working on getting the malware off the desktop. Hopefully I'll have everything sorted out shortly and I'll be back soon.
