Over the past couple of weeks, arrangements had been made for Our Little Group™ to meet at a place called The Lighthouse in Kemah for the Fourth. I personally had my doubts as to the wisdom of such plans, as Kemah tends to be a pretty popular place on ordinary weekends; what kind of popularity it might attract on a national holiday that involves fireworks I could only imagine.

We left the house at 6:30 pm to meet the group at 7:30 or so. Normally, the trip to Kemah takes about 10-12 minutes, and Google Maps estimated about 25 minutes given the traffic conditions at the time. At 7:30 pm, we were still in line to turn left into the restaurant area in Kemah when the police showed up and started setting up roadblocks. It was okay to leave, but entry was being severely discouraged.

We ended up going to the Villa Capri. Dinner was good. I had a martini, the first for many moons. I also spied George Abbey, a former Director of JSC, and wished him a Happy Fourth.

All in all, a pleasant evening,.
