Finally . . .

Although Jan really enjoyed her Pumpkin Pancakes at Snooze yesterday, she was still jonsin’ for her fav Avocado Toast, and since we both like breakfast any time of the day, any day of the week, we left the rig about 12:45 to have brunch at The Egg and I once again.

We were hoping that with Snooze open right down the street, we were hoping the Egg wouldn’t be as busy as usual, and though they were busy we got seated in just a few minutes.

After a delicious as usual breakfast, we drove by our old house to check it out. We found the sidewalk still ripped up just as it was a couple of weeks ago.

Looks like this had something to do with replacing the water meter box, which is new. Though now it looks like someone is living there.  Also there’s now a big dent in the left side garage door, to match the one on the right side that Jan put in it  about 20 years ago.

Our next stop was the Oasis Car Wash over on Bay Area Blvd for a rainy car wash. We were trying to get the last of the rig oil leak residue off the Dakota. And because it was raining we’ll get two washes for the price of one, since if it’s raining, or rains in the next 48 hours, you can get a 2nd wash free.

Then it was on down the Interstate to League City Cracker Barrel to order a big pan of their Cornbread Dressing, or as Jan calls it, the only ‘real’ dressing. Jan says CB’s is ‘almost’ as good as hers, and she doesn’t have to fix it, so it’s a win-win.

I’ll pick it up Wednesday afternoon to take up to Brandi’s on Thursday morning.

Our last stop was the Victory Lakes Marble Slab for a couple of small Coffee ice creams, the perfect to finish off a rainy, cold, overcast day.


The truck is still running fine, with no problems. I do hear a slight high-pitched whine that I assume will go away as all the new gears settle in. We’ll see.

The new Lasko heater is working well with the recent 30’s weather we’ve had. And the old Lasko is also hanging in there, maybe because I threatened to rip its guts out to try and fix it.


Yesterday afternoon I noticed that my head has finally started to peel after my recent Photo Dynamic Therapy.

Head Peeling

It’s about time.

Tomorrow afternoon I’m taking Jan up to Brandi’s to Landon-sit while he’s out of school this week. Then I’ll go up on Thursday (with the Cornbread Dressing) for Thanksgiving Dinner and then bring her back Thursday evening.

Really looking forward to it.

Thought for the Day: 

Veni, Vidi, Visa.

I came, I saw, I shopped.
