Bye bye brother, and yep, that's by our house

My brother graduated with his chemical engineering degree and is off to bigger and better things. We had a going away party for him and his wife last night we'll miss them they have been a big part of our lives. But I wish them luck in Texas. I hope they find great success. As a (big) sidenote, we came home to a big fire just up on the mountain by our house. It's not too close to our house but it still was a little close for comfort. I had heard that there was a fire up the canyon when we left for the party and was shocked when we saw it in the dark. It was pretty large and pretty close to some houses. I'm glad we're where we are and hope that no one lost their home.

Here is the link to the story if you want to read more

Watching the news of that fire last night, I wondered if you guys were getting smoked out. Hope they get it contained soon.

Congratulations to the Super-brother!

And I can see how a fire in one of those canyons would be pretty scary. Stay safe!

Hey look! I'm commenting! That means I've had TIME to actually visit a few blogs this morning! Imagine that!? LOL.

Everyone I know that lives in Texas LOVES TEXAS. I bet your brother will too.
