For a number of weeks

starting in August of last year, yes 2017 is now last year, I had to live with my wedding band removed. When I had surgery in August they took it off after I was unconscious. I don't know how, it wouldn't come off after many attempts while I was conscious to the great frustration of all the surgical prep people! And unfortunately my hands became very swollen after surgery and it wouldn't go back on for weeks. I didn't feel right with it off. Its back where my wife put it 39 years ago now. I like that.

Having Driven

down to San Antonio this morning with intentions of eating the FANTASTIC Chicken at Pollo Asado we were pretty depressed to learn that it was closed down again! This happened last spring as their neighbors complained about "too much smoke" ??? This is San Antonio, the East Side not Austin! So they made monstrous modifications ( see all that silver apparatus on top of the pit room??) and were allowed to reopen! All was right again in the universe!

It seems the Texas Air Quality Board isn't satisfied. Maybe someone should take them down to Pasadena, Texas and let them get a whif of the air ( or maybe just go sniff the Texas Capitol during a legislative session!)
Anyway it wasn't a total washout -we only had to wait three hours at Rubens for tamales! And that smile on Renee's face should tell you the Sold Out Sign didn't apply to us! However the dozen tamales shown are long gone!!

This is what happens when you decide to wrap "fairy lights" around your head and set the controller to pulse! All of a sudden your are trapped in the Eighties!
