See this picture? As I write this post it is 95 degrees out there. And only about 50% humidity, which means Houston is very hot and VERY DRY!
My flights this morning took me from Greensboro NC to Dulles, VA where I boarded the plane and reclaimed my favorite seat EVER!!
If you find yourself flying on a 737-500, this is the seat to get:
Loved loved loved it! It was about a 3 hour flight, and I even slept, which was wonderful. And since my eyes were closed, I didn’t have to see that the traveling businessmen types were glaring at me for THEIR lack of legroom, when I had it in abundance. It’s a rough life, isn’t it?
((Remind me when I get home, to do a bleach wash on those running shoes!!!))
Upon picking me up, Ginger said that there were a couple different places we could go for lunch. I am always up for something that I “CAN’T” get at home…and we definitely do not have a Rudy’s! What is Rudy’s you ask? See the sign up there? Do YOU know anywhere else where you can FILL YOUR CAR with gas, and go inside and eat amazing BBQ, all in one place?
Talk about convenient! I think the only thing I would add is a place that would rotate your tires and give you an oil/lube/filter while you eat BBQ! I think they could make a fortune on that!
My adorable hostess, Ginger *NOT* watching what it costs to fill up her car!
Upon walking into the restaurant part…I laughed out loud at these tees!
THIS would be the shirt I wanted for the men-folk in my family, but they were sold out of their sizes, so a picture will have to do instead!
In fact…there were other pictures I had to take too! This one, especially for DS Jeff!
HAHAHAHAH!! Loved this! Of course, I loved THIS too:
NO, this was not just MY lunch, Ginger and I shared it, and she took quite a bit home to her son too. We’ve got smoked turkey! We’ve got smoked jalapeno sausage! We’ve got BRISKET…and it just melted in my mouth…that is ONE THING that I can get in TX that I haven’t found elsewhere. Really good brisket! All the other places seem to focus on pork not beef…and, lest you think we just ate MEAT, there was 3 bean salad, baked beans, and potatoes…
After arriving at my hotel, thinking I was going to take a nap? I needed to walk off some energy. Yes, I know, It’s 95+ out there. But there is a Target 1/2 mile away and there were a couple things I needed!
And because I was enjoying the things that make Texas Texas, I had to take a pic of this:
Horse Crossing? ON a BUSY 4 lane road? In between Target…and…
BEST BUY!? Best Buy was in plain sight from this sign….No, I didn’t see any horses, but it made me giggle. I’m in the middle of the Woodlands, just down from the Woodlands Mall! It is hardly rural here!
And this was the last thing I saw on my way back to the hotel. ((Did I mention how HOT it is out there?!)) Remember balking at the fact that gas stations could charge a QUARTER for air? or water? Who would have thought that inflation has even made the price of AIR go up? It now costs $1.00, but never fear, you can use your visa or mastercard to buy it!
When will they start charging us based on how much we BREATHE it?
I’m being picked up in 20 mins for dinner ((How can I eat again?!)) and then off to give my lecture to the Woodlands Quilt Guild….
Back atcha later!
