Life Outside the Blog

Well, I’m back from Abilene, where I badly overdosed on Tex-Mex food. It’s better there than in West Alabama for some reason. And I’m way, way, way behind on the comments.

I had enough energy to post ahead a few days, but it’s getting close to where I have to start writing again or else leave email inboxes empty across the planet. But Friday I leave to attend my cousin’s wedding in Louisville. He was, we thought, a long-confirmed batchelor, but he is taking the plunge and I have to be there.

I have no idea what to do in Louisville. I was there years ago to watch Alabama’s basketball team lose to Rick Pitino’s Providence team — led by some guard named Billy Donovan. So I became a Pitino fan, but have bad memories of the whole thing. It was Alabama’s best chance at the Final Four in my lifetime, and Donovan and company just shot lights out. That’s all I remember about Louisville.

I’ll be on the road Friday, watching Alabama play Arkansas Saturday (on TV), at the wedding Saturday night, and driving back on Sunday. So I may not have time to interact with the comments for a while — and I just hope to have time to type something up for a post or two. In fact, I really need to post something on Ephesians! But time is so hard to come by …

    Enjoy your time off. You likely need the break.

    I hope you feel like attending the wedding after setting through Alabama's first loss in two years. 🙂

    Bama's offense could run over the Arkansas defense with 10 guys on the field. Did you see what Georgia (!!!!!) did to your defense last week?

    For that matter, the team that last beat Greg McElroy as a starter could probably run over the Hogs defense!

    I'm actually trying to catch up on your posts from the past week because of my busy schedule. So you giving yourself a well deserved break will be good for my One In Jesus up to date status too!
