Shaky Beef and CorrosionX . . .

I spent the morning working outside on my coach batteries, pulling all the cables off, wire-brushing the terminals, and then spraying CorrosionX on all the connections. I also topped off the water while I was at it.

We got these Interstate U2400 batteries in March of 2008 to replace the Trojan T-105’s that were original to our 1999 coach. And after 6 years they seem to be still going strong.

About 3 PM Jan and I headed up to the Katy area to Brandi and Lowell’s to spend the night. Our daughter Brandi is at a business conference in Miami this week and we’re going to help out with Landon. Monday is Lowell’s busiest day and he needs to leave the house a little after 5 AM, earlier than Landon’s daycare is open.

So we’ll get him ready and drop him off at his normal time. Then after lunch at the nearby Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, (YUUMM!),  we’ll head back down to the Clear Lake area for Jan’s 2 PM eye appointment.

A little before 5 PM, Lowell and Landon, and Jan and I drove right down the road to the Little V Vietnamese Restaurant.

Lowell said it was his and Brandi’s new favorite place. And for good reason.

It was GREAT!

Lowell had his usual Pho, while Jan and I tried a couple of other dishes. I had the Shaky Beef Wok,

while Jan had the Chicken Vermicelli dish.

Both really, really good.’

My beef dish came on a bed of noodles, as did Jan’s. The beef was marinated and very tender. And they had a homemade hot sauce that was really good.

We’ll definitely go back when we’re in the area.

Little V Landon

Landon didn’t eat much, but pretty much entertained himself with his iPad, and was really good.


Thought for the Day:

The World According to Student Errors

“Eventually, the Romans conquered the Geeks. History calls people Romans because they never stayed in one place for very long. At Roman banquets the guests wore garlics in their hair. Julius Caeser extinguished himself on the battlefields of Gaul. The Ides of March murdered him because they thought he was going to be made king. Nero was a cruel tyrrany who would torture his poor subjects by playing the fiddle to them.”

  1. Got a spry bottle and pressurized can of Corrosion X in 2009 and use them as needed. The stuff is fabulous. That Vietnamese food looks really good. I’ll think about it when I have my Boost shake for breakfast.

  2. Is there a better way to contact you? I have a question or two about where you are staying. We will be coming up from Aransas Pass, TX, probably in late March or April heading for LA and TN. You can email me.
