What is up with the random Chief’s game today? Might be convenient back in KC, but that is 2:00 in the afternoon here. People got work to do! Oh well, I can listen I’m sure. Famous last words.
Quiet weekend. Friday night we sort of geared up to go out to happy hour somewhere, but just didn’t quite get out the door. It was a pretty nice evening, we had plenty of food to make dinner, we were both a little worn down… So we just hung out on the back porch. Hey, same thing as going out, and a lot cheaper. That lack of effort carried on into Saturday, when we also did a big nothing. My excitement for the day was trying scrambled eggs on my breakfast sandwich instead of the usual over-medium fried egg. Whoa, slow down there big fella! Hey, times are a little slow here lately. For the record, I didn’t care for the sandwich, I’ll be going back to the tried-and-true fried egg. For evening entertainment, I treated Donette to a showing of the recently released “Welcome To Sudden Death.” Ummm… Not recommended.
Sunday we finally left the compound, and met some friends at a new brunch spot. We selected PJ’s Roadhouse for a destination. It’s one of those spots you frequently drive by and say, “We should stop in there some time.” And so, we did. I did not poll the rest of the group, but I’m going to give it a B+. I’ll likely go back, but if I had to drive as far as everybody else did, I probably wouldn’t make the trip. In the “plus” category: 1) Price. Hands down one of the most inexpensive places I’ve been to out here. 2) Food. Definitely on the “basic” side; Biscuits and gravy, eggs and bacon, stuff like that. But hey, I like basic, and the sausage gravy was very passable. Minuses: 1) Smokey. As Donette said, if I am going to insist on visiting dive spots, I am going to have to live with smokers. I don’t have to like it though. 2) No table service. I can’t believe I’m actually saying that. But, I have gotten so old and lazy that I really can’t be troubled to walk over to a bar and order. Remarkably, I did survive the ordeal though, and the sausage gravy quality outweighed the minor inconvenience.
