    Hurricane Watch

    Folks, due to the situation at hand, my good nature , fire fighting, rescue & medical skills I was asked to stay and guard our plant against looters, terrorists and the Rita..We are right up against the Houston ship channel.

    It is not easy to be seperated from our families and loved ones at a time like this , our wives and loved ones have been evacuated to other safer areas of the state and my son and his faithful Akita dawg Bear are standing guard duty at my house ..

    Please keep us in your prayers, as our brush with death draws near, should I not make it out of this situation please keep the boards alive and free of charge with all of the same rules and policies we have now .Randy, Piper, Steve, Jerrynta , Bigdave,Jonw, wayne saudnez, Hammer Killer,algonzo HPJ KittyFox,LarryG,and danTyler thank you all very much for all the time which you have taken from your families to maintain this boards

    I want to thank everyone who has had a hand at building and supporting this Fishingtx websites and for tolerating me....
    Thank you and we'll see you again either on this boards or on the other side.
    Remember one thing , if am wrong in my belief, then what have I lost, but if you are wrong in yours,then what have you lost?? :multi: :multi:
    Make AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!

    Prayers to all, I am boarding up some houses for family members just in case, the winds are going to get high here, but not nearly as bad as first predicted.

    Ben have faith and be safe, we will still hit Gibbon's sooner or later.

    Take care everyone
    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

    I just spoke to Ben and he is OK. We made it through here at work (Missouri City) with very little damage, and I've received word that my house survived with minor damage and some trees down.

    Ben also talked to T-bone a little while ago and he was OK, but currently getting hammered. I'll call him in a few minutes and check on him.
