Laid-Back Saturday . . .

Not much at all happened today. Just a nice, quiet day around the rig.

It was nice enough outside that Mister stayed outside on his leash until it got hot enough for the AC in the rig to come on, then we brought him inside, much to his displeasure. He really likes being outside, but we’re always outside with him, or leave the door open, at least. Many times we leave the screen door open and he just comes in on his own. Otherwise he knows to bang on the screen door to be let in.

Jan spent part of the afternoon making her Sausage Balls and Squash Casserole for tomorrow’s Easter get-together at Brandi’s. If we showed up without the Sausage Balls, there might be rioting. The first thing some people ask coming in the door is, “Are the Sausage Balls here yet?”

While she was working on that, I went into Conroe to get $5.00 in quarters and ten $1 scratch-off tickets. Jan puts the quarters and scratch-offs into individual plastic eggs that will be hidden for the kids to find at tomorrow’s Easter Egg hunt.

The scratch-offs are for $500 a week for 20 years, i.e. $520,000. I told Jan I wondered how we’d feel if someone won the big prize from a ticket we gave them. Then I figured we could just tell the kid we’d give him this whole bag of candy for that piece of cardboard. Hopefully he’d fall for it.

For dinner I heated up some of the Rudy’s BBQ we got on Wednesday. Along with that we also had a can of Bush’s Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin’ Beans. Even better, we’ve still got enough for another meal.

Later, for dessert, Jan and I split one of the Tres Leches that we got at Randall’s yesterday. Very good Tres Leches.

Tomorrow Jan and I will head down to Brandi’s about 10am for the big Easter meal. Then Monday morning we’ll head back over to the Colorado River TT park for a week or so.

Thought for the Day:

If you put the Federal Government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there’d be a shortage of sand.” – Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize-winning economist.

  1. Sounds like a fine day all around for everyone, including Mister.

    Heehee…had to laugh at your quote…more truth than poetry there.
