Orange Beef and Little Debbie . . .

Well, the rains have moved on from the Houston area, but the flooding continues in many places due to overflowing dikes and levees.




And in some places, the flooding is unfortunately deliberate. The Corp of Engineers has had to release water from the Barker and Addicks reservoirs which caused flooding in areas that hadn’t flooded from the storm. But the reservoir release was necessary to prevent the levees from failing and causing even more catastrophic flooding.

Again, damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

And here, according to the official Lake Conroe Kitty Litter Rain Gauge, we had at least 28” of rain here at the park.

I had a couple of comments and emails with questions about my use of the Wireless 4 Channel Remote Control Unit, wanting more info about how to wire it up for their use.

So if you have any questions about these modules, just let me know.




A little after 4pm Jan and I headed into Conroe to meet up with Debi and Ed Hurlburt at China Delight, our favorite local Chinese place.

Jan and I again both had the Spicy Orange Beef.

Delicious and big enough servings that we had more to bring home than we ate there.

As seems to be normal with our Hurlburt get-togethers we once again spent over 3 hours for dinner. It’s amazing how much we can find to talk about each time.



Coming back to the park, we again saw these Code 3 Animal Rescue trucks that are staging here at the park.

But rather than rescuing dogs and cats, they’re handling horses and cows. Don’t know where they’re putting them though.

Wrapping up, regular readers know that Jan has a thing for pumpkin . . . anything pumpkin. So when we were at Kroger’s yesterday she grabbed up these Little Debbie’s

Later, as I was waiting to check out, I read though the ingredient list on the back of the package.

Note that the word ‘Pumpkin’ does not appear anywhere on the list.

I guess it you parse it correctly, the box says they’re ‘Pumpkin Spice Rolls, not Pumpkin Rolls. And it does have pumpkin spices in it – cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. But I think the reason they’re pretty tasty is that the first two ingredients are Corn Syrup and Sugar.

But I still think Little Debbie is a liar.

    Glad Harvey finally left the area. My brother and his family in Friendswood could not escape from the flooding. Less than others but still major damage. We keep praying for those affected.

    Had a great time as always! We love you kids…♥ Lets do it again real soon.
