El Gran Ausente

The Great One has been playing truant again. Off to Corpus Christi on the airplane early Friday morning on business, and back to Cuidad el Jefe that afternoon; just in time to pack the Heir off on a Boy Scout campout to east Texas (no El Jefe on that expedition, this time). . .then home to pack up the cats and tear-off to the country Hacienda near Columbus in time to meet SWMBO for a late dinner.
Spent yesterday tooling around on the estate, trying out a new rifle (a Henry .22 Lever Action for the Heir), doing yardwork and such around the premises. Off to Bellville with SWMBO for lunch, (a hamburger at The Hill, which is worth the trip if, like El Jefe, you enjoy hamburgers), a visit to an art and frame shop, and a trip down to Sealy for a yard tool. Spent the evenings watching Law and Order and Magnum P.I. on DVD. Consquently, I have had neither time nor inclination for newspapers nor news till this evening; when I returned to Ciudad el Jefe.
I am even now perusing the papers, the internet, and piles of reports from the ever vigilant and loyal Secret Police, and shall no doubt have something to say soon. Meanwhile, I hope everyone had a good weekend.

I don't think SWMBO is letting me go to Carnival or to Mardi Gras...probably ever.
