  Articles: Weddings and Parking Tickets _POSTEDBY cat -  
Sunday morning, December 16th, 2001

Aha! I knew John's essay would prompt outpourings of Habershon news. We have sketchy details of Kate's wedding (from Paul, via Jean). She is marrying a certain Pat Fry on April 20th. Does anyone know him? Paul mentions that Clare also got a parking ticket on Friday but that hers was for £30. I feel better now. Mine was especially upsetting because I was running a ten-minute errand at the County Clerk's Office downtown for my boss. The building happens to be next to the street they're tearing up for Houston's new light rail line and there are very few places to park. It was 8 a.m. and there were other cars on the street, so I thought there was going to be some leniency (the sign admittedly did say no meter parking until 10 a.m.). I was the only one to get a ticket. Clare, I hope you also have a good sob story.

  Articles: Weekend Update _POSTEDBY cat -  

Saturday, December 15th, 2001

Well, I've had very little news from any Habershons this week. I could tell you about mine -- let's see, the low point was getting a $30 parking ticket yesterday, and the high point was finding out I passed Business Statistics (won't tell you the grade). Surely someone has something more interesting than that? Your punishment for lack of news is to read one of John's essays. HAH!

I did talk to Dad this morning. He's still tearing up the bridge circuit, and is also playing Mahjong with three lady friends.

Clare has returned from her trip to Genoa. How about a report, Clare?

Keep those recipes rolling in!

Good morning, Habershons. I expect you've noticed a few new navigation bars to the left of the screen. Click away. I'm especially happy to get a picture of Coleford House from Ricky and decided to give it a page of its own. Keep sending me pictures -- I'm waiting for a good one to put in the banner.

  Articles: You may have noticed . . . _POSTEDBY cat -  
. . . that I've started pasting in all the old News & Thoughts articles.

You may also have noticed that they are pushing the new articles to the bottom.

You may have noticed that John figured out how to fix the dates on the articles.

You may also have noticed that fixing the dates of the articles does not make them re-sort into date order.

You wouldn't like me right now.

Filled my car at a Shell station today for a mere 99 cents per gallon. I'll
let you convert that into pounds per litre. Just thought I'd taunt y'all a
little. Hey, nobody's sent me any news. What do you expect?

  Articles: Habershon of the Month _POSTEDBY cat -  

Monday, December 3rd, 2001

We have a Habershon of the Month! Stay tuned for the big
announcement. Meanwhile I'm accepting nominations for January.

I heard from Nick today for the first time in about four years.
That's okay, Nick. I'm just as bad, and your baby sister certainly
makes up for you in the communications department. Anyway, check out his
page
for all his news. I'm slowly updating everyone's pages and
plotting as to which Habershon will be embarrassed next.

Oh, and I also heard from Sarah (for the first time in ten
years). Her e-mail address is now posted and she's promised to write
when she gets some free time. I presume you're working for The
Guardian
, Sarah?

  Articles: George Harrison _POSTEDBY cat -  

Saturday, December 1st, 2001


It’s rare that I shed a tear when a celebrity dies. I can only think of Princess Diana and Charles Schulz in the last few years. It happened again yesterday, though.

These days, if John gets up before me in the morning the first thing I say to him is “Did we catch him?”, and if I get up first, he’ll say to me, “Did we catch him?” Yesterday I was up first and reading the news on my laptop at the kitchen table. John wandered in a few minutes later. “Did we catch him?”, he asked. “No,” I said, “but George Harrison died.” And with that, I burst into tears. Such memories I have of the Beatles. What a major part of our lives they were. I always remember (brother) Paul being extremely pleased with himself because he bought their first single, “Love me Do,” which only went to number 15 in the charts. I wonder if you still have that, Paul? It must be quite valuable. Paul also brought the Sergeant Pepper album home first and I was mortified that Mum and Dad listened to it before I did. Mum was already raving about “When I’m 64” before I’d even heard it.

I also remember receiving a letter from (brother) Paul when he went to school in America. He wrote about how everyone thought he looked like George Harrison, and when he went to Las Vegas with some friends they made him walk down the street in front of them. Within a few minutes there was a whole crowd of people following him. Incidentally, Paul, that letter you wrote was the beginning of my determination to live in America one day, even though I’d never been here. Everything you wrote about, from the “rest rooms” on the Greyhound buses to the carpets on the pavements in Las Vegas had me mesmerized.Back to George Harrison. We knew his death was imminent, but how sad it was when we actually heard the news. I’m playing all my Beatles CDs today.

Catch who? Bin Laden, stupid.
