Speech class went well; I would say better than expected but we are 5 weeks in to the course and only 3 weeks to go. On another note, I have been following the small moving tropical storm headed towards Houston. It appears it is going to make a direct hit and I hope my distance from the coast will be a factor in minimizing wind damage. On a positive note, the storm will bring much needed rain which has been scant as of late. Perhaps, I'll look at the news more intently tomorrow. Besides the storm I did learn that Morgan Freeman had been in an automobile accident. I hope he makes a full recovery.
