Made it to Houston. Man, that was a boring drive over from Louisiana, but I didn't have the time or energy to go sightseeing. And what did Music ever do to Texas to deserve such shabby treatment on the radio? (I forgot the cord to plug my iPod into a car stereo.)
Once again, I found a nice B&B, this one about 1/2 the price of the Best Western by the hospital (where I'll stay the night before the surgery, most likely). Now I have to find a good place to eat, of course. I won't bother you with meal photos this time. Unless it's something really good.
