P. F. Chang’s And More . . .

For the last several days our shore water pressure coming into the rig has been good, intermittent, or nonexistent. However, whenever I looked closer, it all started working for a bit. But after a process of elimination, and the fact that water from our internal tank going through the pump works just fine, the only thing left really was the shore water inlet/check valve.

And when I went to Amazon to order a new one, I found I had ordered one back in June 2013 while we were at the Bend/Sunriver Thousand Trails park in Bend, OR. And for the same reason, as I found out when I checked the blog for that date.

It should be here tomorrow morning, along with a new hose splitter.

This one is solid brass, so it won’t crack/rust like my previous plastic/steel one. So it’s going to be a busy weekend, I guess.

This morning we left the rig a little after 1pm, with our first stop at Esthela’s Barber Shop over in Bay Area Blvd/FM528 area.

Up until about 4 years ago, it had been Lou’s Barber Shop, where I had been going for about 30 years, not too long after it opened. Then Lou sold the shop and retired to Corpus.

Next up was our lunch at P.F. Chang’s, our first visit, but probably not our last.

It was that good.

When we sat down, our server dropped off a platter of their Chicken Lettuce Wrap for us to sample.

So good that a couple of us ordered it for their meal.  Probably the idea for the sample.

Jan ordered the Mandarin Crunch Salad with Chicken.

Which she said she would order again.

I got the lunch version of the Kung Pao Chicken Bowl, which was listed as Very Spicy.

Yeah, right!

Though it was pretty tasty.

And here is this motley bunch.

Bob and Maria, on the left, we known since the mid-80’s. while Connie, Harry, and Sadye, we known since 1997 or so. And Jan of course, I’ve known since July 1967. July 5th to be exact.

And we’ve already got next month’s get-together scheduled, this one at the Black Bear Diner down in our area.

Already looking forward to it.

Thought For The Day:

When one door closes, another opens. Or you can open the closed door. That’s how doors work.
