See! It Did Happen!

or maybe it’s just me.

I went outside this afternoon to try and pull the Check Engine codes for our Jeep from yesterday’s possible bad gas problem. I discovered that the reason my code reader didn’t work yesterday was that I hadn’t yet Bluetooth-paired to my new phone. So once I did that it worked fine.

The codes I got were P0300, P0304, and P0305. Which didn’t really tell me anything new, since the P0300 just tells me that some cylinders are misfiring. And the P0304 and P0305 tells that it’s cylinders 4 and 5.

None of that really helps me, since I already knew that was happening. And knowing what cylinders doesn’t help either. At least at this point. But just to see what would happen, I cleared the codes, anyway.

When Jan and I headed out for lunch, I made a stop at the O’Reilly’s Auto Parts two stores away from yesterday’s CircleK/Valero. I wanted to get a can for Seafoam Gas Injector Cleaner, and I wanted to ask if anyone else had come in complaining about bad gas at the nearby station. But they hadn’t heard anything.


So maybe my engine problems were just a coincidence, and it’s just me. Or as Freud once said, “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.”

Before we left the O’Reilly’s I dumped about half the Seafoam in to the Jeep’s gas tank, and we headed up to Webster for lunch.

And once again, Jan wanted to have lunch at Twin Peaks. Yep, and unlike last time I have proof.

Jan had the Spicy Chipotle Chicken with a cup of the Tomato Basil Soup.

In my case I went a little lighter than my usual Billionaire’s Burger, getting the Soup & Half Sandwich Combo, a BLT and a bowl of their Green Chile Chicken.

So, see it did happen. There’s the proof we did have lunch at Twin Peaks.

Oh? That’s not the kind of proof you were talking about, you say?

Is this what you meant by ‘proof’? This pretty young lady is Haley.

Proof enough?

Looks like our favorite Monterey’s Little Mexico over in Dickinson is getting closer to opening, since there’s a Now Hiring banner hanging from the façade.

But we’ve still got a temporary substitute, since we’ll be having dinner at the Monterey’s over in Alvin before ending up at the Alvin Opry once again. Really looking forward to both, since we missed last month’s show because we were on the road.

We made a stop at Krogers today to pick up a prescription and I was surprised to see this.

Kroger's CoVid Antibody Test

If it’s not clear, it’s a CoVid-19 Antibody Test Kit, with 2 tests for $24. Looks like pretty much everyone is selling them.

Finishing up I found the another interesting photo on the DailyTimeWaste.com website.

Blue Honey

Apparently this is what happens when honeybees start feasting on discarded M&M’s in a factory dumpster. Looks like they like the blue ones the best.
