Pic Of The Day - 05.25.15 - 12 Inches

By friends and family, I have been called a food snob because I tend to post photos from fancy restaurants. So with Monday being a patriotic holiday, I decided to eat at James Coney Island (JCI) and treat myself to a footlong chili cheese dog with tator tots. And you know what? It was yummy!

Pic Of The Day - 05.24.15 - Branches

This tree resides in The Calvinator's Upper Kirby 'hood. If you look at it you will notice that its branches are thick, extensive and hang low.

I don't go to Memorial City Mall very often. They have an eclectic mix of stores. I'd probably go more often if they had a Nordstrom but that discussion is for another day.

What they do have is this cool carousel. I enjoy looking at the craftsmanship that went into creating this piece of art.

Pic Of The Day - 05.22.15 - Frost Paws

From time to time, it can be difficult to find Frosty Paws. Sometimes they can be found in the novelty ice cream section at the grocery store. Sometimes they have their own small freezer in the dog food section. Sometimes they cannot be found at all. However, the Kroger on Buffalo Speedway has designated half of a full-sized freezer for Frosty Paws. They're a bit pricier at Kroger but anything for The Calvinator.

Pic Of The Day - 05.21.15 - Red Nose Day

This is a doctored photo but it is still my pic of the day. You see...

Thursday was Red Nose Day. This is a day designated to raise awareness and money for children living in poverty. The movement actually began in Great Britain. This was the first time for the event to take place in the United States. Click here to learn more about Red Nose Day.

Pic Of The Day - 05.20.15 - Storm Clouds

When first looking at this photo, it may look like a puffy, white cloud against a dark blue sky. What it really is, is a grey cloud against really dark storm clouds.

We've had some really wet weather in H-town. It is a stark contrast to the drought of 2011 that changed the landscape of Houston. I'd rather have the wet weather than a drought but it would be nice if it was done in moderation.

Pic Of The Day - 05.19.15 - The Price Of Gas

I watch the price of gas. Part of my reason for doing so is because of budget reasons. Another part is because Houston is The Energy Capital of the World and many of the people who support Legacy Community Health are in the industry sector or have investments in the energy industry. So, when the price of gas is up, we all breathe a little bit easier.

Around the end of 2014, the price of gas was dropping. That was a good thing to have happen around Christmas shopping time!
