Here's your quiz:

  1. Q:  Name Sissy Spacek's cousin, who served in the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M and also played "Artie" on the Larry Sanders show:  Elmore Rual "Rip" A:________________________ 
  2. Q:  What rhymes with hibiscus and also throw the discuss?  A:________________________
  3. Q:  Where can you have the most fun riding dirt bikes and ATV's in the state?  A:_______________
  4. Q:  Where's the best place in Austin to listen to live music?  A:  ________________________

If you answered:

  1. Torn
  2. Meniscus
  3. T.O.R.N.*
  4. A.C.L.**
you would have the answer to why this post is titled "Hobble."  Davis injured his knee playing soccer about ten days ago.  He saw a doctor, then had an MRI last week.  Results?   He will see a surgeon Wednesday morning, and Walter and I will each make an unplanned trip to Columbus to engage in some postoperative bedside nursing sooner rather than later.

If you want to send him a note, he is on Facebook and his email is

*Texas Off-Road Nationals
**Austin City Limits


  1. Columbus is lovely this time of year and cooler than Texas, but if it heats up, my son has a pool. Let me know if you want his number.
    I have a feeling you're reneging on your offer to rehearse with the trumpets. That's okay, as long as you're back by the week-end.
    You are one of two of my FB friends to post about hobbling today. What are the odds?

  2. Oh no, wishing him a speedy and full recovery!
