Little Crunchy Meat Nuggets . . .

Jan had her dermatology appointment at 1:30 which only took about 45 minutes, so then we were back onto the other side of I-45 to have lunch at Black Bear Diner once again.

Jan got her new favorite, the Chopped Steak & Eggs, which is actually a breakfast item. But she gets it without the eggs, potatoes, and biscuits. Instead she gets is with their Seasonal Veggies and a Side Salad.

Lately I’ve been getting their Sirloin Steak and Eggs, but this time I went back to my old fav, the Bacon Cheeseburger Salad.

Really filling and only about 850 calories. I always remember to tell them to do the burger part as Medium, because the first couple of times I got it, the meat was Well-Done, i.e. hard and crunchy little meat nuggets.

But it was delicious this time.

Then it was back to the other side of the Interstate again for some WalMarting. We checked out their wings, i.e. chicken drums for our Air Fryer, but they didn’t have any drums, or wings, for that matter.

So we’ll check back again, or it’s off to HEB again. But we have enough for our dinner tomorrow night, so we’re good for now.

Since we started RVing almost 13 years ago, we’ve always had one of these Day Clocks.

Analog RV Day Clock

It has performed yeoman service all these years, including a couple of falls. But a few days ago it quit working. I assumed it just needed a new battery, but it was for naught.

It was dead.

In other words, to paraphrase –

It has passed on!  This clock is no more!  It has ceased to be!  It has expired and gone to meet its maker!  It’s bereft of life. It has kicked the bucket. It has shuffled off the mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible!!


But since we’ve found over the years that it is pretty easy for us RV’ers to lose track of the day of week, I went to look for a replacement, and remembering this is 2020, I decided to go digital, so I ordered one of these that came in this past Friday.

Jan really likes it, it’s easy to read from across the room, or across the rig, I guess, and  you can make the text either yellow or white, and we chose yellow. It really stands out.

It was only after I ordered it and we got it, that I noticed that it was specifically designed for Dementia and Alzheimer’s patients to remind them what day it is. Hopefully it will keep working a lot longer in case we actually need it for that.

But you never know.

Replacing the MicroSD card in my GPS was successful, and it was working fine after I downloaded about 5GB of replacement map data. Glad I got it working again.

I’ve had this one since 2011 and I wasn’t looking forward to replacing it, mainly because I didn’t really like any of the new ones.

Thought For The Day:

Apparently not your Average Bear.     And where’s Boo-Boo?
