Weekend Weather/Severe Reports/James Drury, The Virginian Turning 75!

Severe weather is moving through the southeast as I write this blog this Friday evening. One tornado in Chelsea, Alabama and baseball sized hail in Demopolis Alabama have been confirmed.

Saturday, the stormy weather will be over the southeast with some of the worst being in Georgia and northern Florida. Highs over the northern plains will be in the single digits and teens. There will be snow over a few spots around St. Louis. There will be rain further east. Sunday, a new storm moves onto the west coast and look for rain/snow mix along the eastern seaboard--lookout Boston and New York.

Houston hit 85 on Friday, one degree shy of the record. Saturday will be cool and windy--starting cloudy with sunshine in the afternoon--highs will be in the low 60s. Sunday morning lows will be in the middle 30s. Highs will be in the 60s. There is a Red Flag Warning for counties west of Houston--combination of wind and dry vegetation will make the fire danger very high.

Let's do cowboy or vaquero, pronounced vah-care-ROH. I some interesting information about a beloved TV vaquero (see the AND MORE section).

In our award-winning educational DVD for children, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco, we use horse and rooster puppets to narrate. The horse comes with a Texas twang (even though the voice is created by a man from Iowa). Do you know who it is? I'll have the answer in my next blog. You can get your copy at You can also order from,,,,,, and For our English as a Second Language (ESL) version, got to

This youtube trip down memory lane is for my sister Liz...this is the Season 8 theme song from The Virginian.
Interesting trivia--in this season Tim Matheson is there and in season nine, Lee Majors is there.

Well guess what everyone?! I did some digging and James Drury has a myspace page. Here is the link:
And his 75th birthday is coming up April 18th. Here are the instructions on how you can send him a special birthday greeting:

Mr. Drury's birthday is April 18. We are starting early to get the word out. Making it possible for all James Drury's friends to have time to get their birthday cards in the mail to arrive on time.We are setting a deadline so we'll have time to compile and mail all the cards to Mr. Drury.
The Deadline is April 4, 2009
Mail Birthday Cards To:
James Drury
P. O. Box 822
London, OH 43140 USA

I think he still lives here in the Houston area (oh yeah, he moved here and dealt in oil and gas for a while). I think that London address is for his fan mail staff. This is all just speculation. Maybe he has moved to Ohio.

Have a great weekend everyone!
