Hiya, Rose! How the hell are you? University is closed today because of the ice storm, thought I would drop in. I am practically never making the rounds here anymore. Work, work, work. I hope you are well and happy, drop a line one of these days and tell me how it's going. Meanwhile, take care.
November the 18th is the 10-year anniversary of the deadly Aggie bonfire that left 12 students dead.
Texas A&M students traditionally constructed a 59-foot tower of logs for the school's annual bonfire. It was a celebration of the school's big football game against their arch-rival, the University of Texas Longhorns.
On November 18, 1999, the tower was poorly constructed. It collapsed, killing a dozen students.
