The Things I Do . . .

for Nick.

Like get up at 9am, a whole hour early, so I can go out and pick up door prizes from other people who also got up very early.

This morning Jan came with me, and after we had picked up several prizes, we decided to have breakfast at the next one, which was The Fountain, a nice little family diner on the downtown Celina square, just to the south. The food was very good, inexpensive, and plentiful. And they gave us some door prizes to boot.

After hitting several other restaurants, Jan and I came back to the rig about 11:30 and sorted through the coupons and gift certificates/cards to be sure we didn’t miss anyone. Then a little later Nick came over for a while so we could talk over upcoming rally stuff.

About 1:30 Jan and I headed back out. But our first stop was at La Carreta again for a quick lunch of their great Chicken Tortilla Soup. Some of the best we’ve eaten.

Finally getting home about 5pm, we headed back out about 5:45pm with Nick and Terry for dinner. We ended up going to the one of the places we had collected door prizes from, Big Bamboo’s Dockside Grill.

This place is right down the road from Bella’s Italian Grill, where we ate last night, And like Bella’s it’s right on the lake with a great view.

And the food is great too. Mostly sandwiches, and dinners like Jerk Chicken, Shrimp Scampi, and Fried Catfish. All really good, and not real expensive either. Dick, the owner, and our waitress, Stephanie, were really fun, and we had a great time.

And even better, part way through our meal, the Geeks on Tour, Jim and Chris Guld, along John and Jean Watson, showed up and pulled up a table right next to ours, and the hilarity ensued.

Jan is attending a Computer Boot Camp given by the Geeks for 6 hours each of the next two days, and she’s really looking forward to it.


Thought for the Day:

"If we do not fight when we know we can win, we’ll have to fight when we know we will lose"
