Sending PRAYERS, Mr. Mudge.....

Sorry to hear. This 'Holiday Season' (and year!) has been wrought with angst, not much joy.

Hope you get back to good (well, GREAT!) SOON, good sir.

Hopefully Melody the Wonderpup is still giving you joy. Puppers do help; mine does me.

Best to you;

~ Anne ~

Jan 18 was not bad news, and I guess passably good news. Things look stable. If no further regression of the screw-heads, MD will give me a no-holds-barred return to work authorization Feb 15.

Until then, it is more of the same. So... The Beloved gave me to green light to go BBQ Walkaboo. A buddy of mine for over 40 yrs and I are taking our "20 year old guy epic road trip". It's Mick Dundee's "Walkabout". But it's BBQ. And catching up with family and friends / coworkers I've not seen since I retired so many years ago. Much like that old dude's band, we are ALSO "Ten Years After (Times Four!)" We are shipping out of Beaumont, TX in another few minutes, already over 2200 miles into it. Heading for Central TX by way of Houston, then Galveston (fresh shrimp and seafood), and Lindale/Tyler/DFW to look for the perfect brisket. So far, Rodney Scott in Charleston, SC has pulled pork for the win! Baked beans and jalapeno cheese grits from Smoke Pit in Concord, NC. May have to hang around until NEXT Saturday to try snows, but Austin is calling, as is Kerrville, and Fredericksburg, and... you get the picture.

If I can get an app in before Feb 18, I should be good to go for a reinstatement. That is if I don't have any get another "screw loose".

Safe travels in the west and midwest this weekend and early next week folks, looks like Mom Nature is trying to stifle my run into the Canyon and back to Cawker City, KS for the biggest ball of string!!!

Peace to you all!!

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Mr. Curmudgeon, you will make a big mistake if you come to Texas looking for B-B-Q and fail to make a stop at Snow's. I warned you - you have got to get some Brisket from Snow's!

thank-you.gif Old School, that's what i have heard, but they only run saturdays, So, we're guessing the next seven days are fairly likely to be a "Texas Tornado" - swirling around in a brisket fueled frenzy, waiting to land in Lexington on the 30th. Sure miss my sleeper tho... smile.gif

Get to Snow's early. You will be standing in line for a considerable time. The folks at the back of the line don't always get to eat!

Here's a few recommendations...

Franklin's in Austin - order online - really excellent Brisket.

Stanley's Famous Pit B-B-Q in Tyler has amazing ribs and brisket.

Llano. TX (40 minutes north of Fredericksburg) The original "Coopers" Old Time Pit Barbeque - an excellent place - really great pork chops.

Try Salt Lick in Driftwood or Round Rock - both of these are outside Austin.
