¿Tienes un mapa?

Jan and I headed out about 12:30 for a WalMart run but since we were in the area we decided that, with the rainy, overcast day, another big bowl of King Food’s Hot & Sour Soup was in order.

Since we were planning on having dinner with friends later tonight, we each just had soup.

Hot & Delicious!

Next up was a quick stop by my client’s office to pick up something I forgot yesterday, and then it was on to our WalMart stop.

Coming home we made a gas/lottery ticket stop, finishing up at the Santa Fe Post Office for our mail, and also to pick up a Change of Address card. Now that we’ve gotten our new address from Dakota Post, I can submit an address change for our old My Dakota Address address.

In our mail was my renewed Passport America card and a paper PPA park catalog, which I didn’t want. I didn’t want the catalog because it’s pretty much useless, since it’s out of date pretty quickly, and I can get all the info online. But I had to pay $5 shipping for it anyway.

What I don’t understand is why my account number changed? I’ve had the same PPA number since I first joined in 2007. But suddenly with this new card I’ve got a new number for some reason.

About 5:15 Jan and I headed over to the TGI Friday’s in Pearland for a get-together of a lot of our Alvin Opry friends.

We’ve known most of them since the late 90’s, but don’t get to see them as often since the Opry closed a while back.

Jan had the Dragon-Glazed Grilled Chicken with Veggies,

while I had a bowl of their White Cheddar Broccoli Soup.

Guess I’m on a soup kick recently. But it was all good. As was the company.

Hopefully we’ll be able to do it again soon.

My Duolingo streak is still alive at 248 days, without a repeat of the time they lost my streak and I had to pay $14.99 to regain it.

One thing I wonder about is who compiles the phrases that they give us to translate. Some of them are really cheesy pickup lines. Like this one.

¿Tienes un mapa? Estoy perdido en tus ojos.

This translates as:

Do you have a map?  I’m lost in your eyes.

I mean, does this ever work?

Thought for the Day:

“Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend”. – Bruce Lee
