New Friends and Pizza . . .

After a 35 degree night, we had a beautiful sunny day today. So I managed to get through the last six basement bins, although I didn’t finish getting everything sorted into the final bins. This is because I’m having to rethink my bin categories, mainly because I’ve got too many tools and too much electronic stuff to fit into one bin of each. But it looks like I’ll be able to consolidate some categories that turned out to be smaller than I thought. So hopefully it’ll all work out.

I’ll see tomorrow since it should be another beautiful day.

But the other reason I didn’t get any further with the sorting is that Jan and I met some new friends and spent part of the afternoon talking and getting acquainted over in their very nice Tiffin Allegro Bus. Don and Darlene Couvillon came in this morning and will be here until Friday.

About 3, we started talking about dinner, and since Jan and I had already planned to eat at the Grimaldi’s Pizzeria in The Woodlands, we suggested there, and they agreed.

So about 3:30 we piled into our truck and headed out about 25 minutes away. And as usual, the coal-fired oven-baked pizza was fantastic.

And the company was pretty good, too. Turns out we’ve been to a lot of the same places, and have a lot of interests in common.

After dinner we stopped off for a while at the Barnes & Noble a few blocks over. Jan and I were just looking for a couple of magazines, since we don’t really buy hardcover or paperback books anymore, just KIndle books.

While I was in line checking out, there was a guy in front of me buying Nook. I just wanted to grab him by the lapels, and shake him, “Don’t buy it. The Nook is going out of business. Buy a KIndle!”

But to his detriment, I didn’t.

On the same subject, I read today that B&N is dropping support for the Nook Windows Reader App.

And another domino falls.

On another note, the last couple of days I haven’t seen any quashed snapping turtle parts on the road leaving the park, so I guess my turtle rescue the other day was successful.

Finally, we had a great time getting to know Don and Darlene, and hopefully we’ll be able to get together with them again before they leave.

  1. Your friends might be a bit underwhelmed by your calling their Allegro Buss a Bay.. There is over $200 K difference in their price.. I of course do have the much cheaper Bay LOL…

  2. Rod, You’re right. My fingers mistyped.
