There's a little museum in Galveston that just fascinated me. It featured a small video on the Galveston hurricane of 1900 that inundated the island. Understandably, there was no Weather Channel at that time, with live-action footage documenting the tragedy. But what this little city has done is piece together a video of photos, with a narration of old letters that were written by survivors of the storm.
We had to wait a little while to get into the museum, and to get out of the heat, we dunked into this little bar for a drink:
Now, this next photo may be of interest to all you smart phone addicts (you know who you are!) We took a dolphin tour by ship just off the Galveston coast, and one would think that Doug and my brother, Robert, would be mesmerized by the dolphins. . . .
. . . but being the intense multi-taskers that they are, they managed to tear themselves away from enjoying the boat ride to talk into their smart phones to this very essential phone ap: Talking Tom.
Talking Tom is an animated cat! You talk into the phone, your voice is recorded, and played back to you in the voice of Talking Tom, a high-pitched, squeaky, little feline.
Ummmmm, these two highly intelligent, very accomplished, men spent HOURS doing this!
I stand in awe. (Or I stand aghast. Something like that.)
