A First Cousin Once Removed . . .

About 4:30 we headed out to the nearby Denny’s, for what else, breakfast again. They don’t have Jan’s fav Avocado Toast, so she gets an Omelet with Mushrooms, Tomatoes, and Onions, along with Fruit and an English Muffin.

Of course since mine is pretty plain jane, I get my usual Two Eggs Over Easy, 4 slices of Crispy Bacon, Fruit, and an English Muffin. The only downside at Denny’s is that they don’t have The Egg and I’s Hazelnut coffee, but they do have Hazelnut creamers. If you know to ask for them,

Don’t know what’s happening with gas prices, but when we passed the HEB and the WalMart today on our way to Denny’s, I noticed that the HEB price had jumped 9¢ a gallon and 6¢ at the WalMart across I-45.

But the Costco, where I just got a fill-up at $1.67 a couple of days ago, is only up to $1.69. Hopefully we’re not seeing gas prices reversing direction.

When you leave a comment, be sure and give me your real email address. No one can see it but me. And I don’t share it with anyone.

Twice recently I tried to send an email back to someone who left a comment and found the email address was not valid. Don’t do that.

In the past I’ve posted artwork from my niece Stahlie who lives back in Alabama. And here’s one of her latest pictures.

Her take on the recent Blood Moon.

I refer to her, and her sister Darby, as my nieces, but actually they’re my First Cousins Once Removed. Since they’re the daughter’s of my first cousin, I always thought that they were my Second Cousin’s, but apparently not. And so they’re referred to as my nieces, and not my cousins.

Tomorrow, having given up on the Post Office finding our missing package at work, I’ll be back on the phone with eBay and the sender to get us a refund on the machine.

Thought for the Day: 

If you choose dishonor to avoid war; you shall have war also.
