A Very Windy Wednesday and Dinner!

It was warm and breezy overnight and although warm today it was very windy. We had a few drops of rain this morning but that quickly cleared away. It was already 69F (21C) at 8 a.m. and it warmed up to 77F (25C) but a cold front is coming in tonight again.

After my walk/run and breakfast, Gordon took the truck into Port Lavaca to get the oil changed and I sat outside in my lawnchair and finished my book 'Corruption of Blood' by John Tannenbaum. It was okay. It's about finding out who killed John F. Kennedy and presents the facts in a different light from the Warren Report apparently. Not really having concentrated much on the Warren Report, other than, Oswald did it, I don't know much about it but it was different from things I usually read and true or not, it did provide a different angle on things.

I was just getting dinner ready when the owner of the campground (AKA Grandpa) knocked on the door and said they were having a fish fry tonight and would cook it in cornmeal and buttermilk if we wanted to come. This is the 4th invitation we've had for dinner so we decided we'd better go. They really do go to a lot of trouble to be sure that Gordon can eat it. Gordon's not big on fish but I love it and never have it. We had a delicious meal of fish, shrimp, french fries, roast potatoes, cauliflower, deviled eggs and chocolate cake! Now I'm stuffed!

  1. Sounds good. They must have a great time feeding everyone there. I should come and stay a while and eat some fish!! I love sea food and can't wait to be down there to get my share.
