Potpourri



It's been quiet on Twisty Lane.
I've been busy and trying to cut down my online time.

But, today is Friday and it's time for a little catch up -- some this and that.

*

I went on a rainy adventure with a good friend down to Alvin, Tx and Joe's Bar-B-Q.
I can't tell you how many times I've driven by Joe's and thought the food must be good
because the parking lot was always full.
I've done my own personal research now and can report that I had the best
Bar-B-Q sandwich I've ever had at Joe's.
Then we were off to Froberg's Farm for some veggies and blackberry fried pie.
I didn't get many veggies, but I did get a fried pie (or two), some honey and blackberry jam.

The Rice Baseball Insiders dinner was held at Reckling Park (home of the Owls)on the field. 
Boy was that fun. Some folks had never been on the field.
Lots of room to walk and talk and meet the fine young men who make up the 
Rice Owl Baseball team.

This is coach Graham and the next shot is one of the 18 conference title trophies.
Each table had a trophy as centerpiece.
I'm not sure how much fun the players had, but us *old* folks enjoyed ourselves.

A true cold front arrives today.
We start at 75 at 5 AM and will drop to 50 --probably by noon.
It's supposed to stay in the 40s and 50s the next week.

****
Santa has arrived on the front porch with his tree.
I've plugged them in to make sure they are working, but won't officially turn them on
until Thanksgiving.
The snowman is on the balcony. 

Getting ready to jingle on!

Wishing YOU well and much joy.

Okay, what is blackberry fried pie? What we would call a turnover, enclosed in dough? Or is it fried? Sounds wonderful anyway. And the barbecue too. xox

Sounds like you've been doing lots to keep busy while you've been off line. We really turned cold here, about 19*F when I got up this morning.

I drug out the Christmas decorations this morning, and the boxes are piled up in the living room. Now if I can get my sorry self up off this computer, I might actually get something done!
