My office

At least for now (word is we'll be moving to Robinson Tower in a year or so), my office is on the fourth floor of Pat Neff Hall. You can see my office window in the shot below; it's right behind the top of the American flagpole. (Click on the image for a bigger version.) I can look out that window and see Tidwell Bible Building and the Judge Baylor statue. Pretty cool!

The joys of homeownership

Well, we're here... Movers showed up bright and early on the 11th with a REALLY big truck (our stuff filled up 1/3 of it).

We drove down the next two days; got here the 13th, closed on the house the 15th, and I started my new job the 18th. Stuff finally got here this past Thursday, and we're still unpacking.

But on to the interesting story... So, it rained a little here today - nothing we would consider a storm, really - but when I got home from work, part of a tree was down in our driveway. Bethany did not hear said tree fall, but there it was.

We think it was a pecan tree, which makes Bethany very sad. Thankfully, it was not the entire tree, and it didn't fall on anything (like her car... again).

We tugged a little to the right and a little to the left, and down came the branch. We think it's probably a little too big for our compost pile; guess we'll have to call a tree service to cut it up and take it away?

Just thought we'd share. (We seriously do love our new house.)
