I’m not Older, I’m just BETTER !

Jan and I headed into Katy about 9:30 with a breakfast stop right down the road in Columbus. We had planned to stop at the Denny’s shown on the Internet as being there, but found it was now a Chinese buffet. So our fallback was Schobels’ Restaurant right down the street. Debi and Ed Hurlburt had recently had a bad experience there, but it was the only place around so we thought we’d give it a try.

And all I can say is that they should try it for breakfast. Jan had a Veggie Omelet with mushrooms, tomatoes, and onions, while I had the Spanish Omelet with ham, onions, tomatoes, and cheese. We both quickly agreed that these were the most delicious omelets we had ever eaten, and it also quickly became evident why they were so good.

They had pre-grilled the ingredients before incorporating them into the omelet, and I believe that they then cooked the omelet in the liquid left over. This is such an easy concept that it’s a wonder we’ve never run into it before. Really, really good. And the grits and homemade biscuits just made it better. Hopefully we’ll go back.


. . . And they call him The Streak !

We got to Brandi’s about 11:30 and settled in for a nice afternoon. While Lowell and I talked inside, Jan and Brandi watched Landon play outside in the water with the hose. Since it made it to 79° today, it was perfect for it.

In fact, apparently it was so nice that Landon decided he would be more comfortable sans clothes. Jan and Brandi turned around and Landon was streaking back and forth across the yard. Luckily, with the privacy fence, there were no horrified neighbors.

At that point, it was suddenly Landon’s nap time, so while Lowell took Landon down for his nap, Brandi and Jan watched some TV, and I also took a very nice nap.

Later we watched Landon play for awhile, showing us all his favorite toys.

Later, we all headed over to Wal-Mart for some shopping before coming back to Brandi’s area to have dinner at Little V Vietnamese Bistro. We had first eaten here a few weeks ago and really looked forward to coming back.

The first thing we did was to ask for an order of the Pork Spring Rolls, the best we’ve every had, bar none. Brandi and Lowell ate here the very first day they opened, and the owner came over to say Hi, and offered us some of her off-the-menu sauces. The Garlic-Ginger sauce was fantastic, and her version of the famous Sriracha sauce was even better.

And we found out why the Spring Rolls are so good. They’re made to order by the owner’s mother in back. Talk about your home-cooking.

After we got back home, Landon got to play with the toy we had gotten him at Wal-Mart. A dragon that walks, growls and bellows, and lights up.

Landon loved it.

And even better, it scares the hell out of the cat. It’s a win-win.

Saying our goodbyes, we headed out about 6:30, and after a quick stop for gas, we got home about 7:45 pm, after a really great day.


It looks like the weather’s going crappy again. Although tomorrow’s high is supposed to be 75, it’s going to be rainy, with a low temp of 32 degrees tomorrow night. Then we’re back to highs in the 50’s and lows in the 30’s for the next week or so. Oh boy!

I’ve decided that I’m not older, I’m just better. At least I am according to a TV ad we saw yesterday. It was for a senior citizen apartment complex, and they said that it was “for active seniors, 55 and better.”

So from now on, I’m better, not old. At least that’s what I’m going with.

Thought for the Day:

Plastic Pennies
