Landon and the Ostrich . . .

Brandi sent over some photos of Landon playing with the horsey we got him for Christmas. She says he gets on and off of it all by himself now.

He’s such a cutie!

Nick Russell called about 12:30 to double check the directions to our park. Unfortunately he will have to cross over two big bridges, so I guess we’ll be lucky if he shows up at all. They should be here Monday afternoon, staying for five nights. We’re really looking forward to it.

Jan and I left the rig about 2pm on our way up to Brandi’s, with a quick stop at O’Reilly Auto Parts for some electrical connectors.

Then, after playing with Landon for a few minutes, Brandi, Lowell, Jan and I headed up to The Woodlands about 3pm. They wanted to show us around the Woodlands Mall and take us to the Kirby’s Steakhouse for dinner.

And when I tell you this is a high-end steakhouse, how many places do you know that have Ostrich,

or a $120 Wagyu Beef steak on the menu?

From the Fried Asparagus appetizer, to the fabulous steaks, and the Lobster Risotto, Garlic Mash Potatoes, and Sautéed Mushrooms sides, finishing up with Crème Brule with fresh berries, this was a meal to remember.

And somewhere there in the middle, we killed off a delicious bottle of Moscato d’Asti. And that’s all I’m saying about that.

Even the bathrooms are high class.

Afterwards we walked off dinner, sightseeing around the Woodlands Mall Outdoor Courtyard.

The place even has a Tiffany’s. Lucky for Lowell and I it closed about 5 minutes before we got there.

Whew! Dodged a bullet there.

Unfortunately a few minutes later, Brandi and Jan came across a Baby Gap store, and about $150 later, we were again on our way. But I guess it was still better than Tiffany’s.

After a wonderful evening, we headed home, finally getting back to the rig a little before 10.


Thought for the Day:

  1. You never take me places like that.

  2. Hey, you’re the one selling a thousand copies a day of your book.

    Buy your own $120 steak.

  3. Howdy J&G,
    Did you have a great day or not?? Landon’s almost too big for that horse!! I thought it was going to last a while from the pics, at first, but he’s growing sooooo fast!!! Why didn’t he get to go to Kirby’s?? He could have eaten a Wagyu steak!!!
    Kirby’s was a ‘to do’ place, when it was in Snyder Plaza, but small.. The Ingrams have sure UPGRADED the ambiance and looks of the locations.. Although I’m not sure Mickey Mantle’s is a good name for one(He went broke in the restaurant business)… $150 ain’t nothing for a stepper for my g-nephew.. I think he NEEDED the steak!!!
    Have you checked the weather for Tuesday on?? NICK’S COMING &
    RAIN!!!!! FOR THE WHOLE STATE!! Bless his old heart!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Are those TVs in the restroom. What will they think of next
