Winding Down . . .

Jan and I headed out a little after 10:30 for another ‘last meal’, this one at Twin Peaks, our new favorite restaurant. Our regular waitress,

Twin Peaks 4Lauren, took her usual great care of us, and we got a chance to talk and learn more about her.

One thing I was disappointed to learn about was upcoming menu changes at Twin Peaks, because my favorite Average Joes are going away. They are mini Jalapeno Sausage Dogs with spicy mustard and jalapeno/onion relish. Really good.

Twin Peaks Average Joes

An order of Average Joes and a cup of their Venison Chili are my go-to meal whenever we go there. Guess I’ll have to find something else when we go back. Of course I  may find something I like just as well on the new menu.

Leaving Twin Peaks we stopped off at a local carpet store to check out carpet samples for a upcoming bedroom carpet replacement project, but they didn’t have what we were looking for. We’ll try again somewhere else.

Next, after dropping a letter in the mail, Jan and I headed over to Friendswood to visit a friend and take a look at the intermittent audio problem with her entertainment center.

Leaving Connie’s, our next stops were Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club for a few things, and then after quick stops at a client’s and a hardware store, we headed back toward home. Getting back to the Dickinson area, we realized that it was after 5, and we were getting hungry, especially since we had eaten lunch at 11, so we headed over to Monterey’s Little Mexico for some of their great Tortilla Soup, and Chips and Salsa.

Back to the park, I stopped off at the park office to pick up my external HD enclosure that had come in from Amazon. At the rig, after putting stuff away, I pulled the HD from the client’s computer that I mentioned yesterday and installed it the new case.

Finishing it up, I plugged into my computer and confirmed that it was readable as an external drive, so it goes back to the client tomorrow, as well as a rescued laptop for one client,  and a new video cable for yet another.

Tomorrow, besides delivering stuff to clients, I’ve got a lot of small chores around the rig that I need to finish up before we leave here on Monday. Then we’ve got a dinner date with some more friends tomorrow night.

Another busy day.

  1. Greg I would like ask a question, Sandy and I are coming to Galveston
    in May for our daughter’s wedding. Could you suggest or recommend
    any good RV Parks?

  2. Jim,

    If you want stay on the Island, there are two nice parks, Dellanera and Jamaica Beach.

    The park we’re at, Galveston Bay RV Resort is only about 15 miles from Galveston, as is Marina Bay RV Resort. Green Caye is also nice, as is Bay Colony, both in Dickinson.

    Also, Oasis RV on I-45 is about 10 miles from there.

    Whereever you chose, it’s important that as soon as you have a date, make your reservation. The parks around here are all staying at pretty much 100% occupancy, due to a lot of plant construction in the area, and it can be hard to get a space.

    So start early.

    Let me know if you need any more info about the area.
