Work today was one of those days where I did a lot of different stuff, but didn’t seem to get a lot done. It was mostly just stomping out small fires.

About 6pm we picked up my client’s office manager, Jennifer, to take her out to dinner with us.

Jennifer Gio's

I’ve known Jennifer since I first started working for him in 1998 so we’ve been working together for a long time.

We asked her to suggest a place in this area that she liked and she picked Gio’s Flying Pizza right down the road on FM517 toward Dickinson. And a great choice it was.

She’s eaten here a number of times, but it was our first.

Jan and Jennifer both started off with a small salad, though they looked pretty big to me. And, of course, being an Italian restaurant, the salad had pepperoni on it.

While they went the salad route, I had a bowl of their Pasta E. Fagioli soup. Different from other places, like Olive Garden, for one. but delicious anyway.

Jennifer had said how good the Lasagna was, so Jan copied Jennifer’s choice with a big serving.

For my entrée, I got the Grilled Chicken with Sautéed Veggies. But since the Veggies consisted of Zucchini and Squash, not my favorites, I asked for the Sautéed Green Beans that I had seen go by on someone else’s plate. And it was a good choice.

Finishing dinner we hung around for a couple of hours just talking, especially Jan and Jennifer getting to know each other. We did talk some about RV’ing and some of our friends, We mentioned some of the hobbies that people have, like Nick Russell’s Miss Terry, who weaves things like this beautiful shawl she made for Jan a couple of years ago.

Jan always wears it on special occasions.

Tomorrow, depending the weather, I’ll do some more prep work for our RV trip that we’re planning for Sunday. I got distilled water last night so I’ll take care of the rig house batteries, and then take down our weather station’s anemometer that’s mounted on a pole tied off to the ladder at the back of the rig.

Thought for the Day:

My mother was a English teacher. So I’m always silently correcting your grammar.

    With reference to your thought of the day, I do the same thing.  What bothers me the most is that it seems a lot of people don’t know the difference between there and their.  It makes you wonder what they teach them in school?

      Or accept and except.

      Or to, too, and two.

      Or affect and effect.

      Or its and it’s.

      They’re not teaching them much.
