Y’all come back now!

So, Tuesday I brushed my teeth and left my toothbrush posed, like so, on the counter in the bathroom.

The next time I looked for it, it was gone. Not there. Missing. Incognito. Wednesday I did not brush my teeth until I went and got a complimentary one from the front desk, along with a nifty little tube of toothpaste. I forgot to buy one yesterday when I was getting my delicious meal, and since I have two more at home still, didn’t really want to buy another.

Luckily, it turned out I had put my toothbrush back in my backpack to take with me for emergency roadside toothbrushing!

I don’t know why I bothered – this is the south, after all. It’s a bonus if you have teeth at all!

So anyway, I worked some, then traveled, and came across this:

So I stopped and looked around, of course. It wasn’t too fancy, a hole-in-the-wall with a bunch of random stuff used guns, some rifles that can’t be bought in California, and a M1 Carbine that had been turned into a handgun. Funky!

All that browsing got my hunger parts a’ burnin’, so I hit kept my eyes peeled for some authentic southern coastal eatin’.

Nothing screams SOUTH like a humongous catfish!

I got the Sudie’s special meal – two seafoods, with beans, coleslaw, and hushpuppies. When the waitress gave me the menu, she asked if I’d like a cold beer to start, and when she dropped off the food, asked if I’d need more seafood sauce. I’m so steeped in the culture it’s dripping from my pores!

I passed on the beer in favor of a Sprite, and passed on the extra sauce, because there’s no way I’m getting through all those fries, crawfish, and shrimp. The coleslaw was delicious, but on the runny side. I’m still hoping it gives me tons of gas. The beans were brown, but tasted like those white beans. I only ate two spoonfuls.

And then I went back to work. This site was located on a street named after the second most famous Texas Ranger.

I’m keeping my eyes peeled for Lone St.

All the work done there, I headed home, and made sure to stop by the Fry’s near the space station. I’d heard they have something interesting there.


And they did! Apparently, Texas is so big, they had to explore it from space, and they still have a space station in Houston. NASA is here, too, and inside this Fry’s, theres a bunch of satellites and space station paraphernalia. Groovy!

On the way back to my hotel, I passed by this humongous building. I’m not sure what it is, but I think it’s where they’re building the robots that will eventually take over the word and enslave mankind. Spooky!
Back towards Houston, there was another huge traffic jam. For how huge the roads are, and how well spaced out everything is, they sure have a lot of accidents. Tuesday morning when I turned on the news, there was an accident on every highway, in every direction.
Also note, these lucky country bumpkins get to ride in the back of their trucks!

Oh yeah, and they have these nifty little happy signs everywhere, giving tips to passers-by.


Some of them say “Drive clean through Texas.” Some incorrigible youths slap new stickers on them that say “Drive clear through Texas.” LOL!!!

  1. they didn’t steal your toothbrush all along?

    Looks like so much fun! We had meatloaf without you here.

  2. I am so not liking your good example in the blogging realm. I have been schooled. I bow in respect to your blogging prowess.

    I am glad the hurricane did not blow you out to sea, that the maid service thought to put your toothbrush in your bag for you to use later, and that the food is so yummy in Texas.

    Keep on posting and bringing joy to our lives.

  3. So what those signs really are, are watch for ice on bridge. But they are high tech signs, and texans don’t like to get that advice out when its like 100 degrees outside. Its just depressing, so they fold them up, and put happy sayings on the back.
