Weekend Craving . . . hunting burgers!

This weekend’s craving was for the perfect Veggie Burger. Now, don’t immediately click off the blog. Veggie burgers can be great. Case in point, the one that was served @ Mellow Mushroom until last week. (Note there’s no link, because they’re on my bad side.) Apparently, the powers-that-be @ Mellow Mushroom didn’t find sales of their Herbed Veggie Burger high enough and it’s been pulled from the menu. Hubby and I went for lunch today, ordered the burger, then after a 25-minute wait we were told the burger had been pulled from the menu. 1st – shame on waiter/management that it took 25 minutes to tell us what we ordered was no longer available. 2nd […]

Texas Roller Derby

Richland Hills. 4 teams — leagues — skated. Two separate matches. This was at the beginning of the match and the National Anthem. Doesn’t appear to matter what the sport in the good ole’USA.

Snow Day

Nightfall in the snow!8 o’clock at night and still the flakes are falling. I’m not sure this bush will ever be the same. Not sure what she’s digging for. Maybe, it’s all the times the squirrels were busy in her yard. She just wanted to try it out. Snow . . . snow . . . everywhere. 45 minutes out of the garage and already hubby’s car is turning white. This picture is for my daughter. The green van was her set of high school wheels. The old car looks pretty good under a drenching of white. Too wild . . . snow in Texas is a dusting, but this, 5inches and counting. Snow Day […]
