Fish, and Shrimp, and Oysters, Oh My . . .

Sorry. I couldn’t resist.

We woke up to 38 degrees this morning, so after coffee and Dunkin’ Donut’s Munchkins, I worked on client stuff for most of the morning. It was just too cold and windy to get anything done outside.

About 2pm Jan and I headed out for a bunch of errands and then dinner. After stopping for gas and the bank, our next stop was a client’s office in Clear Lake for a while to go over some website changes.

Then it was on up to the Almeda area to Johnson GT, a truck accessory company. I had picked up some new locking handles the other day for the lift window on our truck cap. But I ended up;with two differently keyed locks, and keys to only fit one lock. So I went back up to get two new locks both keyed the same.

That accomplished, we head back south on I-45 and stopped off at the Sam’s Club on El Dorado to pick up the prescriptions we dropped off yesterday, and a few other things as well.

Finally, with 5pm looming, and with our stomachs rumbling, we headed over to Kemah to have dinner under the Kemah Bridge at Outrigger’s, one of our favorite local seafood places located right on Clear Lake Channel

And lucky for us it was 50 cent raw oyster night, so we started off with a dozen. With lemon juice and horseradish for the cocktail sauce, it can’t be beat.

I had the Fish Sandwich, with a big piece of Atlantic Cod. Eat your heart out, Filet-O-Fish.

Jan had her usual two Grilled Shrimp Tacos, the real reason we come here.

It’s hard to tell from this photo, but it’s just solid shrimp underneath the fixin’s.

Getting home about 6:30, it was already down in the  40’s, with a low of 36 or so expected. But tomorrow’s supposed to be sunny and in the high 50’s so maybe I can get some things down outside. I’m running out of time before we leave on Sunday.

But we don’t have it as cold as our great-nieces and nephews do. At least not according to this photo and video.

Redneck Skiing

Nothing like a little ‘improvised’ skiing using plastic garbage can lids. Maybe the next Olympic sport.


And of course, sledding behind a one-horse (well, maybe about 5) open golf cart.

Kids can really have a lot of winter fun up north.

Of course, by ‘up north’, I’m talking about north Alabama here. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that much snow there, at least not when I lived there.

Thought for the Day:

Where do I go now that I’ve gone too far?
