Fat and Happy . . .

As usual we started out with coffee this morning, but didn’t sit outside since it had rained last night so all our chairs were wet.

We pretty much goofed off all morning before setting up a get-together time for this afternoon with Nick and Terry. About noon, I tried out our new Toaster Oven by making Jan some cheese toast for lunch. So far, so good.

At least as far as cheese toast goes.

About 1pm, Jan and I, and Nick and Terry, headed over to the Shipshewana area and the Flea Market there.

We spent several hours walking up and down the myriad of rows, and only covered a small part of it. Jan bought some specialty breads and some Skin So Soft. And I found a couple of tools, and Mister got a new engraved collar tag.

After the Flea Market, we stopped off at E & S Sales, a local Amish bulk food market, where Terry found a few things.

While we were in the area, Nick dropped off some bundles of Gypsy Journals at a couple of local RV Parks.

Then it was on back to the Elkhart/Goshen for dinner at Mancino’s Pizza. We had eaten here a few days ago with Dave and Lyn Cross, and it was just as good the second time. And again, we have leftovers.

As we left the restaurant, Nick noticed this large groundhog about 100 yards away in a big field across the street.. I think fat and happy about covers it.

Of course that about covers Nick and I too.

We got home about 7 pm after a really nice day with good friends.


Many of you know about the Big Texan Steakhouse in Amarillo, and their 72 oz. Steak Challenge.

If you can eat a 72 oz. steak, as well as a Shrimp Cocktail, a Baked Potato, and Salad, and a Roll and Butter, and if you can eat it all within one hour, then your $72 cost is refunded. And yes, you have to pay up front.

Well, this is Molly Schuyler. She’s 5’ 7” tall and weighs 125 lbs.

Recently she set not one, but two new Big Texan records.

Molly - Big Texan 1

She ate the first meal in 4 minutes 58 seconds, a new Big Texan record.

Then, apparently still feeling a bit peckish, she ate a second meal, but this time taking a whole 9 minutes 59 seconds. Thus establishing a new record for eating two complete meals in less than an hour.

You can see a video of her performance here.

You can follow our visit to the Big Texan in June of 2010 here. Check it out.

Tomorrow looks to be goof-off day. Looking forward to it.


Thought for the Day:

When I’m not in my right mind, my left mind gets pretty crowded.

  1. Molly would not be a “cheap date.”

  2. Someday Molly will be 40 or 50 or 60 and have to watch her diet! Oh, those were the days….

  3. George,

    Well, she would be as long as she won a contest every time you went out.
