ButterBurgers and Dollar Tree . . .

I spent the morning tidying some client’s website stuff before Jan and I headed out a little before 1pm to the nearby theatre to see Despicable M3. the 3rd one in the series.

As we were leaving the park, I was happy to see that they had started to pave the entrance road from the turn-off, pass the ranger station, and passed the Activity Center, including a new larger parking area directly across from the Center.

Even better, it looks like they’re doing about a 4” layer, thick enough to stand up to the heavy rig traffic.

Our senior tickets were $13.50, and a medium popcorn and a medium drink were $13.50. There’s a problem here.

The movie was good, a little slower than the first two, mostly because they did a lot of character development, setting up the premise for the next few movies. We both enjoyed it.

After that we had Butterburgers at the nearby Culver’s.

Mine had two patties, cheese, bacon, mayo, mustard, pickles, and onions. Really good.

For us it’s pretty much a toss-up between Whataburger and Culver’s. It’s like apples and oranges.

I do like Culver’s big crinkle cut fries better than Whataburger’s shoestring ones.

After lunch, we headed across the Interstate to the Dollar Tree to pick up a jug of Awesome and a container of the new Awesome Orange powder that we’ve seen online.

Supposed to be really good. We’ll see.

Coming back to the park about 4:30 it was good to see that they had almost completed paving both side of the road around the ranger station. So far though, I haven’t seen any sign that they’ll paving the interior park roads, but I hope so.

We’ll see.

My friend Nick Russell’s new book, Big Lake Tragedy is now online on Amazon.

Wrapping up, ESPN has pulled sports announcer Robert Lee from the play by play calling of an upcoming college game, due to the fact that his name is similar to a Confederate general.

The problem is . . . he’s Asian.

And ‘Lee’ is about as common as ‘Smith’ in his culture.

And finally, Anderson Cooper’s relatives owned Michelle Obama’s relatives. What should we tear down now?

Thought for the Day:

The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, without a shadow of a doubt, what is laid before him.” – Leo Tolstoy
