Joe, power is back! I've had it back since Wed. Both of my food delivery orders were cancelled this week that I get on a regular basis. Groceries are pretty bare right now. I think I've got enough to get by the next few days. I've got a friend headed to HEB right now to see if they've got any food left. Groceries should be restocking now because it's melting and hopefully the trucks can get in. Temps will be freezing again tonight, but warming up above freezing tomorrow during the day, as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Jessie:

Happy Friday Joe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Candy-O'67:

I have my tub filled with water for water to boil right now, too. So, I should be fine with that. Now just worried that some pipes aren't damaged as things thaw out!

Glad you are managing Candy-O!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Candy-O'67:

Awww, thank you, Bob! I wish you could, too! There are a few places giving free food right now here on the East Side that I know about, restaurants that I frequent. I'm still ok. So, I'll let those meals go to people who are out of food right now or still freezing. I'm praying the grocery stores get restocked over the weekend! I'm sure as the road are better, they will.

"Different Drum" makes me think of Allen Hill. Which makes me think that I discovered today that the last #1 on The Billboard R'n'B chart (which ceased in 1963) was "Sugar Shack"!
Avatar 3:19pm Joe B:

speaking of all this monkee business, our own Andrew Sandoval is taking preorders for his new Monkees book!
Avatar 3:19pm Joe B:

and that mention of sugar shack makes me think of Allen Hill referencing Jimmy Dale GILMER and SHAKE SHACK
