An Arm and A Leg . . .

Yesterday was pretty laid back, starting with lunch at Gator’s once again. Jan got her usual Grilled Chicken Strawberry-Walnut Salad,

while I got out of my Loaded Baked Potato Soup rut and got the ‘Egg In The Hole BLT Bagel’ once again, but this time with a side of Bacon instead of Fries.

Always delicious!

We finished up with an HEB stop before heading home for the day.

This past Friday morning when I was on my way into work I noticed that that Chevon station on the corner had diesel for $4.69. But by the time I came home that afternoon their diesel was going for $4.99.


Of course that’s not as bad as when we were on our way up the AlCan Hwy in April 2008.  At one of those little towns out in the middle of nowhere we paid a little over $9 a gallon (based on liters) for diesel.

Double Ouch!

Or it could be like this, I guess.

Had a nice surprise show up in our bank account the other day. Our $600 deposit was finally returned by Holland America. We had an Alaskan Cruise booked by back in September 2020 which was WuFlued Out. So we rebooked it for May 2021, transferring all our deposits to that trip. Which in turn, also went away.

Actually I had forgotten about our deposits, so it was a nice surprise.

Money is always a nice surprise.

I got this package from Amazon last night. Looks like it’s a little overkill on the packaging.

Amazon Big Envelope

The address label is bigger than the purchase.

Tomorrow we’re heading up to Conroe to meet up with Debi & Ed Hurlburt and Janice & Dave Evans at the Golden Corral there. Both couples are long-time RV friends, all of whom are off the road and in Sticks & Bricks now. It’ll be good to catch up again.

Finishing up, I mentioned the other day that I couldn’t post any photos from our visit to Twin Peaks because they were too ‘cheeky’. But I found this one on FB so it should be OK.

Twin Peaks St Patty's Day

What’s kind of ironic is that you can see more skin than this any summer weekend on Galveston Beach.

But then they’re not refilling your iced tea.

Thought For The Day:

You ever watch some people and wonder how they found their way out of the birth canal.

Yeah. Me too.
