Fun Day

Once every couple of months, we make a Costco run. There is no Costco in Temple, but, being long-time, loyal Costco customers, we have found the drive to Austin, every other month, not too bad. We always come home with a trunk-full of non-perishables that carry us over until our next trip.

Yesterday was one of those Costco days. Before we headed down I-35 we called our old college friends, Milt and Susie, who live in Georgetown (north of Austin), to see if they wanted to have dinner with us that evening. They were happy we'd called, and we made plans to be at their house around 5:00. And they told us, in that phone call, that a BRAND NEW Costco had opened up in Cedar Park, another community north of Austin. That was good news! We could shop at Costco without going clear into Austin, which would make it an easier drive.

We found the new Costco without a problem, and successfully completed our big shopping spree. Then we went to the VW dealer, in Georgetown, to have a couple of small adjustments made on Dan's car. Because we didn't have an appointment, it took longer than anticipated, but we were still able to get to Milt and Susie's by a little after 5:00.

They took us to a wonderful little seafood restaurant, Fish City Grill. I think the fried shrimp I ordered were the best I've ever eaten, anywhere! Yummm. And, we all opted to have dessert (I know . . . not what I should be doing, but a girl's got to have a little fun now and then!). Dan and Milt both had key lime pie. Susie and I had hot beignets with honey for dipping. Oh, my goodness, they were scrumptious!

We went to Milt and Susie's house for a short while after dinner, and then headed home, arriving a little after sunset. 

Fun day!
