Clute, TX

I have been on a pursuit for a few years now to find the best kolache in Texas. This is not an original pursuit, but it is, I think, a noble one. If you don’t know what  a kolache (ko-lah-chee) is (which means you probably don’t live in Texas), then ask your friend Google. I can tell […]

Road trippin’ Oct 2013

I’m trying to get back in the groove of this. A routine is needed. A blogging routine. Or not. But let’s jump back into it, shall we? Last October we took a big honkin’ trip up over yonder to Yankee land on the east coast. Usually when we drive up that way we go through […]

A roadside classic: Mammy’s Cupboard

After contemplating the mysteries of the Abita Mystery House, we found refuge at a hotel in Mandeville during a torrential downpour. We sat in the common area drinking beer and wine and ordered some ‘za. The pizza delivery specialist was a real trooper bringing us pizza during a Looziana monsoon. The next day we headed […]

Feed the feminists

Anyone who knows me knows I am a kickin’ ass and takin’ names, spear chuckin’, hairy legged, lesbian feminist takin’ a sledgehammer to the bullshit patriarchal paradigm, every single day, yo. Ok, well, not so much the hairy legged thing though I’m not as diligent a leg shaver as I want to be, I do […]

This is not a duck

And you’re saying, “Of course it’s not a duck. It’s a windmill.” Very true. BUT, if it was an establishment that sold windmills, it would be a “duck.” And you’re thinking, ‘wha?’ It’s true. An establishment whose building is the shape of what that establishment sells – is a ‘duck’. This particular business sells hot […]

Sunday in Houston: Revival Market

Breaking from the Epic Eastern Journey of 2012 to talk about Houston, because who else is going to talk about Houston? We get no respect. EVEN THOUGH half the country is moving here because, ca-ching – jobs. I’ve even seen people from Indiana here (according to the license plate). It is my understanding Indianians don’t […]

Good, fast, cheap

You can have two, but not all three. Good and fast? It won’t be cheap. Cheap and fast? It won’t be good. Cheap and good? It won’t be fast. I’m sure there’s a joke about a cheap hooker somewhere in all this, but we won’t go there, Gentle Woodland Folk of the Blogisphere ™. We […]

Texas stop sign

We crossed southern Wyoming. Not much to see. By this time it was all about getting home. Castle Rock, just outside of Denver, afforded us a comfortable place to crash. The drive into New Mexico from Colorado was quite lovely and very scenic. You’ll just have to take my word for it. We did come […]

Sunday in Houston (but not)

Getting back to the Sunday in Houston blogs –  but today we were in Galveston, just a 45 minute drive from the Bayou City. I took “Nellie” with me. Nellie is a little bear on a key chain from Ireland. I “friend” the page World Irish on fb and received Nellie the key chain bear […]

‘Bout time for a brew

Looks like this is going to be the longest, drawn out trip story ever in the history of long, drawn out trip stories. I’ve been out of blogging mode and in serious gardening mode. We’ve got a vegetable garden now and a compost dealeo. It’s all about sustainability so when the frackin’ Cylons attack, we’ll […]
