Old Flint's boat is fine and she's called the Miss-Inclined
and there's no home port painted on her stern
and they say she's like a ghost up and down that Texas coast
but you saw him didn't you Laverne ?

I'm not much of a coast-beaches guy but Renee' and Hallie are! And there was no way I was going to pass up a trip with them there over Hallies Christmas break! The fresh seafood is fantastic and even better is hearing their laughter and seeing their smiles! My idea of the beach is picture number TWO, looking at at it from a comfortable chair, out of the blowing sand, with a good book close at hand!
 I just keep a sharp eye out for Old Flynn & the Miss Inclined, he's been know to lure beautiful women aboard and sail away!

Late New Years Eve

Renee', Hallie, Bailee, Karen, and I headed to San Antonio on New Years Eve with a two-fold goal- tamales from Reubens and chicken from Pollo Asado al Norteno! To be honest B &H don't eat the chicken ( just chic-fil-a for themšŸ˜©) but they were up for tamales AND Pollo Asado also has killer grilled burgers! Someday i'll eat one but stuffed with fresh tamales and that otherworldly chicken a couple of bites is all I've managed so far.
The tamale eating is pretty ritualized- on either the hood of the car or inside it you open a dozen, let the aroma fill the air and then devour them! And sometimes they are so HOT you can barely unwrap them!

because there are tortillas, grilled onions & jalapeƱos, rice, beans, and of course the famous green sauce in addition to the chicken! it goes a little slower!
