The Bakken family and I enjoyed a weekend in Galveston. The water and beach were great but the sun needed to hide behind a cloud or two, but that never happened. Our skin is red, and hopefully won’t peel, but we had a great time.

On the way home, we dropped by daughter Janie’s school, Hogg Middle School in Houston, where she is a counselor. The building was constructed in the 1920’s and reminds me of our MHS in some ways.
