I Know What The ‘Carrot’ Is . . .

We’ve got a busy week coming up. Tomorrow we’re meeting Brandi, Lowell, and Landon up in Katy at Astor Farm To Table on Mason Rd., near their house. We went there once before in their old location, but now they’ve moved to a bigger place right down the road. And they have a very interesting menu.

It’s a fusion of South African and Latin America food, with a twist on everything. You can check out their menu here. Astor Farm To Table Menu

Where else can you get an order of African  Lamb or Goat Curry or a salad made with Buffalo Mozzarella? But you can also get things like Steak, Pork Chops, or Breakfast. So even Landon is happy.

But what I want to know is who has to milk the Buffalo to make the Mozzarella?

Then Monday Jan’s driving me into work and then heading up to the SH Tollway and Westpark area to meet a friend for lunch. On Tuesday, we’re meeting our friends Debi and Ed Hurlburt up in Conroe for lunch. After that, on Wednesday, Jan’s having lunch with an old friend from her working days. So she’ll be driving me into work that day too.

On Thursday Jan has a doctor’s appointment. Next up, on Saturday we’re meeting Janice and Dave Evans down here in Webster for lunch.


So next Sunday will certainly be a needed day of rest

About 3:30 we headed down to Galveston to see Yakov Smirnoff at the 1894 Grand Opera. And as we were told, everyone had to wear a mask. It was the first time I’ve worn one in months, and I had forgotten how much I hate them.

And it seems most other people didn’t want to wear them either. So much so that before the show started a ‘mean’ lady was roaming the audience making people put their masks back on, or pull them up over their noses.

But as soon as the lights went down and the show started, the masks started disappearing again.

We didn’t get home until almost 10pm, so I’ll save talking about the show and dinner afterwards for tomorrow’s blog.

Thought you’d find this video funny. I don’t know what started the fight, but this young lady certainly finished it.

She’s A Real Bad Ass

When I posted the stuff about the Glass Octopus the other day, I wondered about the ‘carrot’ inside the body.

Glass Octopus 1 -500

Well, now I know what it is.

It’s the octopus’s digestive gland/organ and they can move it around in their body. But apparently they normally keep it vertical to make it harder to see them from above or below, helping to hide them from predators.

So now you know.

Thought For The Day:

Don’t judge a person for drinking and swearing. Judge the quiet, sober ones. Those are the ones that are up to something.
