We Got Plucked . . .

No much new happened at work today. I did get a call from my client yesterday evening saying the Shipping area machine was down.

I asked if he wanted me to come and take a look at it, but he said no, just wanted me to know for this morning. And I’m really glad I didn’t to in since it only took me about 5 seconds to fix it.

The machine was offline, so I just unplugged the USB WiFi adapter and then plugged it right back in. And Bingo!, it was fixed.

When I got home about 4:30, we turned right around and headed back up to Webster to get Plucked.

At Plucker’s, a wing place that just opened a couple of weeks ago.

In fact, I just noticed them a few days ago as I was going into work.

Plucker’s has a pretty varied menu from wings, burgers, sandwiches, salads, and apps, but why would you go to a place called Plucker’s and get anything but the wings.

But we started out with an order of their Fried Pickles, free for a limited time. Really good. And even Jan, who doesn’t like dill pickles, liked them.

Next up was Side Salads for both of us,

with their really tasty home-made Ranch Dressing.

And finally the pièce de résistance, what are advertised as the largest wings available.

Plucker's Ginger Peach Sriracha Wings

And they are big, much bigger than Hooters or Buffalo Wild Wings. Jan got 10 wings, half with Honey BBQ and half with Buffalo Medium.

I got my usual all drums with Ginger Peach Sriracha sauce. along with a side of their Fire in the Hole sauce, the hottest they have. The wings were delicious and Ginger Peach Sriracha is my new favorite sauce, topping Buffalo Wild Wings Mango Habanero, my past favorite.

However I was disappointed in their ‘superhot’ Fire in the Hole sauce. It was not as hot as BWW’s Blazin’ sauce and all I could taste was the vinegar base.  And that vinegar taste why, though I like really hot stuff, I don’t care for any of the standard hot sauces, like Tabasco, Frank’s, Louisiana Pete’s, etc. All I can taste is vinegar.

However I do really like Sriracha. Although it has vinegar in it, it’s not enough for me to taste.

So as it stands now,  Plucker’s is our new favorite wing place, and we’ll go back soon.

Tomorrow is a busy day. I’ve got to stop by Cracker Barrel around 11am to pick up the big pan of Cornbread Dressing that we ordered the other day.

Then in the afternoon, we’ll head into downtown Houston for Jan’s Birthday Present. Although her birthday was back in October, her present starts at 3:30 tomorrow afternoon at the Toyota Convention Center and the

Trans-Siberian Orchestra

We’ve both wanted to see TSO for years but this is the first time it’s worked into our schedule.

And then afterwards, another favorite of ours, Longhorn Steakhouse, when we get back to the Webster.

Looking forward to a great day.

The Headline of the Day: Wal-Mart Planning Stores Without Cashiers.

Somehow I thought they were already doing this.

Thought for the Day:

Funny, but I always thought that growing old would take longer.
