Thanks to Everyone . . .

First off, I want to thank everyone for all the Birthday greetings. It was nice to hear from everyone.

The other day I mentioned the new Amazon warehouse going up over on League City Pkwy (Hwy 96).

Amazon Hwy 96 Faciltiy

I was amazed at how quickly it had gone up, because I thought it hadn’t been that long since we were by there, and I sure didn’t remember any big construction going on. And when I checked our HEB receipts (the reason we go over that way) the last time we were by there was Aug. 3.

Lloyd, the blog reader who brought this to my attention, said they started construction on the building right after that, and that they’re planning on hiring almost 250 people to work there.

So in less than two months they’ve gone from a bare lot to this.

Short blog tonight because we have an early day tomorrow.
 


Thought For The Day:

From The Andy Griffith Show:

When the hobo told Andy he should just let Opie decide for himself how he wanted to live…

Andy said, “No, I’m afraid it don’t work that way. You can’t let a young’n decide for himself. He’ll grab at the first flashy thing with shiny ribbons on it. Then when he finds out there’s a hook in it, it’s too late.

Wrong ideas come packaged with so much glitter that it’s hard to convince them that other things might be better in the long run.

All a parent can do is say ‘Wait’ and ‘Trust me’ and try to keep temptation away.”
