We tried to leave Texas 17 years ago and move to California. It didn't take. When LOML realized that the left coast wasn't going to work she agreed to come back to Texas if we lived in Clear Lake and she could have a Maltese dog. Done deal. Now I'm starting to worry about our choice of where to live. Andrea Yates (lived in Clear Lake) drowning her 5 kids was an aberration. Then along comes Clara Harris running over (multiple times) her philandering husband in the parking lot of the Nassau Bay Hilton (in Clear Lake). Now we've got the crazy astronaut lady (Nowak ?) who lives only 2 1/2 blocks away. I'm really starting to get worried. If LOML starts to look at me funny I may have to find a hiding place.
