When Tony and I got in Saturday night, my step-son and daughter-in-law weren’t home so they left a key for us. Only one problem. They have a pug dog and they were not sure how the dog was going to react to strangers coming in the house. So we walked in the house, and just stayed in the foyer for a few minutes.


The dog was absolutely fine with us.  I really love this dog.  He is so friendly and affectionate.  While Ed liked to be near us, he wasn’t an affectionate dog at all.  I told Joe and Lizz that if the dog goes missing when we leave, I have no idea what happened!  And the dogs name is Cinnamon Bun, how cute is that??

So we bought a lap top so I could blog during vacation.  Only one slight problem.  It uses Windows 8 which is a piece of shit in my opinion.  I downloaded my pictures from my camera.  I went to enter my first picture into this blog post, and its pulled every.single.picture off my blog into my media library.  WTF?!  In case you were wondering, that’s 22,000 pictures in nearly five years.  Ugh.  So I had to upload the few pictures I had on my camera phone using my WordPress app on my phone, then can type the post out on the lap tap.  Ugh.  Here are a few quick pics – me and my daughter in law:


We met my brother and his family for lunch.  He just makes me laugh so hard when we are together!


Charlie is working on a big project at work, so I was glad he was able to meet up with us.  We drove around town, stopped at Joe’s work to say hi and have a beer.  I have always wanted to try Shock Top and it was delicious.  We just started getting it in Illinois.

Tony and I have seen shows on Salt Lick on Food Network.  Tony said he just wanted to lay beneath all the meat as it was dripping down!  Sadly, the amazing pictures I have are on my camera, but this was really good.  Hands down the best sausage I’ve ever had.  The brisket came in second, and the ribs came in third, but all good.  However, many blog readers say that Rudy’s has the best BBQ, so we are going to go there tonight.


I’ll try to blog again on Wednesday.  We are going boating on Lake Travis tomorrow, should be fun!  I have plenty of sunscreen so I should be good!  Hope everyone had a great weekend!  Hugs!
