Cupcakes and Sweet Peas . . .

I’m not sure what’s happened, but our Internet access here at Verde Valley has gotten really sucky the last couple of days. And it’s across the board. My Verizon 3G air card, the 4G LTE hotspot on my Galaxy S5, and the Wi-Fi here at the park, it all sucks.

At least until sometime after 11pm, when it all starts working better. So I don’t know if everything is just overloaded here at the park, and most everyone goes to sleep by 11, or if Verizon is working on something during the day and not at night.

Whatever it is, I wish it would stop . . . or go . . . or whatever.

Jan and I headed out about 4pm to have dinner at Georgie’s, a highly rated local diner. But we discovered it closes at 3pm every day except Friday. But we did find Bing’s Burger Station.

We never found the place open when we were here a couple of months ago, But we enjoyed it with Nick and Terry when we were here a few years back. Nick and I both really liked their Ribeye Steak Sandwich, but we’d been told they don’t have any longer, which turned out to be true.

So Jan and I went with burgers and accessories. She had the regular Cheeseburger and onion rings, while I had the Bacon Cheeseburger with Green Chilies, and their really good chili.

Then being so close, we had to stop off at the Wild Rose Tea Room for some cupcakes. Jan got a Chocolate Chip and a Blueberry Chocolate Chip, and I got Salted Caramel and a Key Lime. YUMM!

A few weeks ago I mentioned the Sweet Pea trigger mod available for the Ruger LCP .380. The only real problem with this pistol is the very long trigger pull, and Sweet Pea mod takes care of this. It allows you to adjust the trigger to exactly like you want it, You just dial in the feel you want.

They also have several other products for your LCP, including a new magazine spring that allows your magazine to hold one extra round, and several different types of holsters.

In addition they all carry modification products for a large number of other pistols. Check ‘em out.


Thought for the Day:

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”  – Samuel Adams
