Wires are fun

An electrician came a few days ago to install wiring for some hanging lights. I love wires. I think it goes back to my childhood days hooking up and disconnecting stereo components. Oh, and playing with my old Radio Shack 200-in-1 Electronics Project Kit. (I could never get the “build your own AM radio” to work right.) Anyway, some of our old outlets were crooked in the wall, so Mr. Electrician pulled out the old outlets…

… and installed new outlets and breaker boxes. Here, Mr. Flashlight says hello to the new outlet.  Hello, Outlet.

In other goings-on, I gave a lesson on Friday to a high school student named Jason Mulligan who was visiting from the Dallas area. Very nice, talented guy. It was fun teaching a lesson again. I miss teaching. Anybody in the Austin area want composition lessons?

    Oh wow, I live in Brenham which is pretty much right between Houston and Austin.

    I would totally take lessons if you were offering!

    I’m a student here at UT who is very much so interested in composition. A lesson would be fantastic!
