Boo!

We were hankering for some Mexican food this afternoon, and normally we would have headed over to Dickinson to Monterey’s Little Mexico. But that location hasn’t reopened since the Harvey flooding.




So our next choice was the location up Hwy. 6 in Alvin, so off we went about 1:30. We were also hoping we might run into some of the other location’s employees, and we did, finding one of the managers working there.

We got our usual Chicken Tortilla Soup and Beef Fajita Nachos, both just as good as the other location. In addition we were told that the Dickinson location will reopen in March. Not sure why it’s taking so long, but at least it will reopen.

After lunch we drove over to Webster so Jan could stop off at Half Price Books and browse for a couple of things she’s looking for.

Then after a quick stop at my client’s to pick up a couple of things and then headed off to look at awnings.

I had found a place on the Web that  looked like they might be able to make the new awnings for our rig. But when we drove by the address we couldn’t find any sign of them. So I’ll give them a call tomorrow to see if they’ve moved. They do carry the Sunbrella fabric that I want to use.




Next, coming down I-45 and heading for home, we decided to check out a few RV parks along the way. First up was Space City RV Park just off the Interstate below League City. The last time we were here was 4 or 5 years ago when I dropped off a bundle of the late, much-lamented, Gypsy Journal RV Newspaper, and although it’s improved since then it’s still not very high on our list for an extended stay.

Then it was on down to Dickinson to check out Bay Colony RV Park. We have friends who used to live there and it seemed nice. And it still is. Very neat, with no trash and junk scattered around.

Last up was where we almost stayed down here, Safari RV Park. But lucky for us, our friend’s Janice and Dave Evans told us about Petticoat Junction. Safari turned to be a mostly rundown mobile home park, with some trashy looking RV sites thrown in for good measure. Definitely not for us.

Coming home I decided we better get some Halloween candy for all the expected Trick or Treater’s. So we pulled into the Victory Lakes HEB to stock up.

And of course when you’re stocking up on Halloween candy, always be sure to buy candy you like too. In our case , Mini Snickers is the candy of choice.

And what do you know, but here it is10:30pm and not a trick or treater in sight.

Can I plan, or not?



Brandi sent over this photo of Landon’s Halloween costume, courtesy of his uncle Chris. It’s hard to tell in the daylight, but all those buttons light up and flash in different colors. Also note the mechanical motors on his legs and knees.

Tomorrow it’s back to work, with El Pollo Loco chicken that I’ll pick up on the way home for dinner.

The Word of the Day is:  Bonce


Thought for the Day:

Google Maps really need to start their directions at #5. I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

    So funny how tastes differ, ’cause we don’t mind Safari in the least. . .and love the location.  Space Center is way too close together to stay there long term.  Loved our three years at Bay Colony, and subsequent visits over the years, but almost impossible to ever get in there anymore. . .thankful for Petticoat Junction as well.

    Your Landon has a fabulous and talented uncle. . .awesome costume!
