‘Catch’ing Up . . .

Jan and I headed up the Almeda area to have lunch at The Catch. Our friends, the Hurlburt’s, introduced us to the one up in Conroe last Saturday and we really liked it. So we were happy to find out there was a new one just up the road right off I-45 and Almeda-Genoa.

Blackened Catfish and Shrimp with Green Beans and Hushpuppies. Just as delicious as Conroe, and a lot closer.

Next up was stop at the office to pick up some Amazon stuff that had come in, and take care of some PayPal invoices that needed to be sent out. Then it was on the the WalMart and the HEB down in our area before finally getting home around 4pm.

Want to get out of work or class? All you need is a fake cough and some OJ.

Apparently kids in the U.K. have discovered that using OJ, or other fruit juices, or even Coke, you can fake a positive CoVid test.

Better than when I was a kid, I guess, when all I could do was hold the thermometer over a light bulb. Of course, my mother usually didn’t believe that I had a temperature of 140°.

A few days ago I mentioned that one of our favorite Alvin Opry singers, who we’ve known since the late 90’s, was killed along with her father in a traffic accident while vacationing in Germany.

Finally a local station has a little further information on the story, along with a link to a GoFundMe account.

Leighan, a school teacher, leaves behind a husband and six children. And according to the article, it’s going to take weeks to get them and their belongings back home. The GoFundMe account is up to a little over $18,000 out of the hoped-for $40,000.

Jan and I have contributed, so if you have a few spare bucks, I’m sure it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Finally it appears that a new sequel to Ghostbusters is coming out this November. Delayed a year due to the WuFlu, it ignores the disastrous 2016 reboot and Ghostbusters: Afterlife picks up 35 years later in the present day.

The original Ghostbusters team, and what happened in New York in 1984, are almost completely forgotten and faded away. But it seems that Egon’s grandchildren discover the original ECTO-1 hidden in an old barn just in time to battle supernatural occurences.

There have been a couple of trailers released that really look good, and it looks like a number of old faces, and ghosts, will be back.

Check ‘em out.
