Since we're among the 95 percent of Houstonians left without electricity in the aftermath of Hurricane Ike, the long-suffering Mrs. L. and I loaded up the car and headed west to seek air-conditioned lodgings for the next couple days. Fortunately, we found a nifty place where I can use my AARP discount. Meanwhile, our beloved son -- George, a.k.a. Killah G -- is back in H-Town, playing Texas Hold 'Em to win enough money to repair our wind-damaged back fence. Life sure is complicated sometimes.
