What with the money issue and an hour delay from the flight, I’ve made the first sacrifice of the trip – opting out of the (2nd revision) Galveston/Houston Space Center trip and will catch up some time, going direct to Dallas instead.
Currently I’m taking a break in Huntsville, at the statue of Sam Houston. His quote on the statue of ‘Govern wisely, and as little as possible.’ is quite the phrase; a pity not many people in power, follow that approach. The statue itself is 67ft tall and quite striking. While walking up to it, a cat shot through the bushes, scared by my appearance and launched itself into the undergrowth. Later up the road I saw a cat that had been run over so I’m presuming, these people either don’t care about their pets, or don’t keep tabs on their breeding in the wild.
