Jheeeezh Huckleberry,

There's no wondering why the girls all run away from you if you always eat like that. You must be running on 100% Octane all the time.





Does look mighty good tho!

Jackhole.

Yup, I eat like that all the time. I can also ride my road racing bicyle



100 miles in 5:17 flat so if they do run, I can catch 'em.

I had dinner at Chili's again last night and had the Margarita Grilled Chicken but I didn't friggin' take a pic, I forgot.

This was lunch just now.

Chips first.


Then the soup.


And finally the fajita trio, shrimp, beef and chicken with flour tortillas.

Okay Doc, we are changing the rules. No more Chili's. You have to hilight a mom & pop that serves real Mexican or TexMex. That app/website that I was thinking of, is UrbanSpoon.

Good night all, long day again tomorrow but I'm taking my camera for pics of lunch to post tomorrow evening.
You know, if you simply packed a lunch instead of consuming a 7 course lunch & dinner, you'd probably get home a lot earlier................

I made country style spare ribs. Pressure cooked for 30 minutes first. Then cooked on the grill with BBQ sauce until they were falling apart. With corn on the cob, biscuits and a salad.

Really? I wake at 6 a.m. six days a week, walk my dog first thing and then get ready, leave the house by 6:30 a.m..drive north 35 miles/45 minutes to an hour to Spring, Texas from Houston to the office, fill out paperwork from the day before, call insurance companies to recieve approvals and authorizations while my schedule/calls for the day are being prepared by the office personel, leave the office at around 8:30-9 a.m. and drive further north to Kingwood and east to Humble, Texas spending the long hours diagnosing hvac systems and then repairing them, to and from supply houses in between and if I'm lucky I get some drive thru before I finally am able to head the almost hour drive home from Spring, Texas at around 5 or 6 in the evening. I make it home at around 7 to 8p.m. each day.

OK, I get it now. Your "14 hour days" include waking up, walking the dog, eating your sit-down meals, commuting, etc.....

At first I thought you were talking about being on the timeclock for 14 hours.........

Our 16 hour days was getting up at 5, being on the job by six, quitting at midnight and getting home at 1...4 hours sleep and start it again. Then sleeping all day on Sunday. Decided it wasn't worth it.

Tonights dinner. They brought out this to munch on while I waited on..


THIS! Blackened Tilapia in a Mango Salsa, scalloped potatoes and freshly steamed spinach.

Think I'm going out now to have one or two of these..

I have to wait until the end of the day or until after my last service call at least to be able to sit down and enjoy something worthwhile.
