That’s Hedley!

Jan and I left the rig about 11:45, heading up to the Clear Lake area for lunch and new brakes.

But our first stop was at our old favorite, King Food. So good that after almost 40 years we still love it.

I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of photos of our fav Chicken with Hot Garlic Sauce and Jalapenos, XXXXX Spicy, so I’ll spare you this time. But it was as delicious as usual. Especially with the Hot and Sour Soup.

Then it was on over to our son Chris’ for our scheduled brake job. As usual Chris was well prepared with his floor jack  and jack stands at the ready. And once he got started it only took him about 45 minutes per wheel, replacing both the rotors and the disc pads.

In between Jan and I started going through stuff from the attic, especially a bunch of old slides and photos from over 50 years ago.

Here’s one of me and my little sister Beth in 1965-66. I was probably 16 or so.

Brake job finished, we drove over to the nearby SuperCuts so Jan could get her hair cut. Jan still uses the same lady that’s been cutting her hair for about 15 years, as well as her mother’s when she lived with us.

Then after a quick stop at Krogers for a few things, our last stop was at Tuesday Morning for Christmas cards. Jan likes the high end, expensive cards she finds there for very cheap prices. Apparently they’re last year’s cards, but with no dates on them, who knows, or cares.

This is a Frilled Shark.

Supposedly it died out about 80 million years ago. Or maybe not. Last week scientisi caught one of them off the coast of Portugal.

With over 300 teeth arranged in 25 rows it makes short work of its prey. However like a snake, it can open its mouth wide enough to swallow prey whole.

Tomorrow Jan and I are meeting Brandi, Lowell, and Landon at Sugar Land Ice, the rink where Landon does his ice hockey. It’s starting up again so we’re going to be at his first practice this year.

Then we’ll have a late lunch at the nearby Floyd’s Cajun Seafood where we eaten several times before. Always good.

Then Jan will go back home with Brandi, et. all, while I’ll come back to the rig. Jan’s going to be Landon-sitting until Tuesday since Landon’s out of school all this week.

I’ll go back and pick her up around Tuesday noon and drop Landon off at Brandi’s work.

Really looking forward to it.
