Went to Olive Garden for takeout. Coming back we drove by a large sign that said “Dine In” at



Other than the 1 car (I assume was the manager’s) in the lot, the lot and building was empty.

Dude... Waffle House.... Chicken & Waffles... one car in the parking lot....probably could have had an all you can eat plate ...a stoners dream.  :rocknroll2: Olive Garden pales in comparison.

Seriously a few years ago I picked up a friend at George Bush International. He talked me into stopping at a Waffle House at 4AM  for chicken and waffles which sounded ghetto to me. Not ashamed to admit I took a to go box home.

A&M students had a petition going around a couple of years ago to urge Waffle House to build a restaurant here. Seems A&M is the only school in the Southeast Conference, SEC, without a local Waffle House. Still waiting.

When I lived in Houston, close to Memorial City Mall right off Interstate 10 and Gessner Drive, was a place called Champ's, that we would hit after the bars closed. They had the LARGEST breakfast buffets I had ever seen. And the food was pretty danged good too.

Closest Waffle House to us is over in Corsicana. Ate breakfast there many a morning when I was working out of Corsicana for the railroad.

This afternoon, another trip to Lowes! More materials. Should get the shingles done this afternoon too. I REALLY hate roofing!

Another trip to Lowes for more materials. Then I went to Tractor Supply Company and bought a new Porter Cable 20V, four tool combo, with a 1/2" drill, recipricating saw, 5 1/2" circular saw, light, two batteries and a charger, on sale for $179. Then back to the house to get back on drywall repairs.

I don't miss much about Houston, like all the people, or the traffic, or traffic jams, or the crime, but one thing I do miss about living in Houston are the restaurants. Lots and lots of great places to go out to eat, and lots of choices. Whatever your taste-buds desired, they probably had it.

Speaking of AC filters I invested in one of K&Ns reusable household filters.
I have ran K&N air filters on many cars over the yrs. My Mustang is still on the one I installed 16yrs ago when I bought it new. Remove and wash/oil it as needed. Same for their house units. Installed in 9/19 so far cleaned it 12/19 03/20. Wash it out let it dry reinstall it.If it lasts (which I dont doubt it will) I should get many yrs of service from it for $49.95. I live in a fairly dusty area as I have a cement plant less than a mile away and well it is S Central TX as well.

I tried some of the expensive filters in years past. But, they were TOO thick and whistled. Made the unit work harder too.

When I got my last house (before my exwife got it), I talked to the people who installed the a/c. They told me to just use regular filters (not super cheap, but regular ones). He said all these HEPA rated ones and allergy specific ones make the a/c strain too hard to get air in.

So, that's what I have done. I just change them often.

It sucks when I walk around the backyard and my sinuses run wild the next day because there are 6 large Junipers there.
Would someone please come to Plano and cut them down without my knowledge, then I don't have to deal with the HOA :)

Shield is on the right track. Get something to kill the roots. Do it under the cover of darkness!

When they die off, the HOA will MAKE you cut them down!  :rocknroll2:

Apparently your not FEEDING them the right stuff.

Cheap,,,,  Salt, ice melt with calcium cloride, round up, weed killer,, all make trees thrive.  :th_thicon_idea:

Had a problem with some pine trees that were dropping needles and cones on my NEW building roof rusting it.  :P

Not a problem anymore.  :th_thicon_idea:

Wow, the last two weeks have been non-stop. This afternoon is the first time I’ve actually been able to sit down and relax a little.  Life’s too short to be this busy

It's actually a very simple concept. Been going on for centuries! Pay someone some money for a service or product, and they give it to you.   :P

You're welcome!  :thumbsup1:
