Last week, Liz, Preston, Cooper and I snuck away for some fun. We spent time looking at wildlife, geysers, mud pots and mountains in a couple of America’s wonderful national parks. There was white water rafting, hiking, motorcycle riding, reading and quite a bit of eating.
It was great. And I’m only slightly injured from a wreck I had on a contraption that allows people to speed down a mountain in a bobsled/luge sort of thing.
For the record, this was not a competition between a father and his sons. But I was very far ahead (and almost certainly going to finish first) when I seemed to lose control coming out of one of the steeply banked curves.
I ended up sliding down part of the mountain pretty much uncontrolled.
The boys with their bobsleds/luges just before the run.
Anyway, as a result of the entire week (and not just speed-induced injuries), I’ve written nothing for this Watson Wire. Sorry.
We’re getting a lot of response for the 6th Annual Concert Under the Stars. And I’m not surprised. I’ve got the legendary Mavis Staples and Charles Bradley performing a big night of R&B. It’s exciting.
The concert is on September 15th at Rock Island in Zilker Park. You need to be there. You can sign up by going here.
