It was time for The Calvinator's annual checkup and he needed some shots. While he was being weighed and having a blood draw, I was left to my own devices in the exam room. I noticed that one of the walls was covered in artwork with an animal theme. It was sort of like a micro-museum.
It's always fun to catch up with Margo. We walked from her place to Dry Creek (which isn't dry anymore) and had a great time catching up over brunch. We needed a reason to celebrate so we toasted losing an hour worth of sleep.
There has been quite a bit of construction happening in Houston. Cranes are everywhere and for the past year or so, I have watched this piece of Post Oak Blvd. change. The street isn't a straight line so the bend in the road makes these buildings look like they are on top of each other. And driving thru them feels like going into a canyon. .
I was behind these two cars about a block away from The Calvinator's Crib. It's nice to know that I'm surrounded by likeminded folks. And in case you can't read the bumper stickers, there is one for Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Remember when I mentioned this? Well today was the day to wear it! It was Dr. Seuss's birthday.
Walnut Bend Elementary School was the host for the press conference for Read Aloud Month. Neal Bush, son of Barbara and President George Bush was there so it was cool to meet him. His mother was in the school reading to students but we didn't get to meet her.
Also, at several Legacy sites volunteers and staff took time out of the day to read to some of pediatric clients. Thank you to everyone who participated.
Back in the olden days, or back in my day, Texas held its Democrat and Republican primaries sometime in May. From I what I can tell, Texas joined Super Tuesday in 1988 because it wanted to be a player on the big stage and wanted to have an early voice in the selection of candidates.
And so, this year Super Tuesday was held on March 1. My girl Hillary won Texas and the evening! Here's hoping she makes all the way to The White House!. Oh, and if you want to see all of the results for the evening, click here.
In February of 2015, it was announced that Legacy Community Health's Body Positive program would be the recipient of funds raised by E.R.S.I.C.S.S. Reign XXXI. This group raises money for various causes in Houston and they raise the money $1 at a time.
So...the grand totals were announced and Legacy received $15,616.86! And that was only our portion!
A big thank you to Empress XXXI Angela Mercy, Emperor XXXI Susan Hayes and the members who raised this money for us. Y'all are stellar!
For the second time in three months, I have traveled south of Houston and outside the Beltway to make my way to Baybrook Mall. I had a favor to ask of someone and she lives down that way so I went to her. I was thrilled when P.F. Changs was one of the restaurant options. I love me some P.F. Changs!
March 2 is the birthday of Dr. Seuss and I have been invited to a press conference for Read Aloud Month. Rather than resort to something costumey, I found this online and I think it is the perfect accessory to wear in honor of Dr. Seuss.
Monday at lunch found me back again at la griglia for a meeting. I decided to be adventurous and try the sesame crusted tuna. Normally when I eat tuna, it is out of a can and added to salad or it is the salad put between two pieces of bread. There was no need to do that with these pieces of tuna. The meal was yummy.
I read that someone had painted a mural in memory of David Bowie. I couldn't quite remember where it was but I remembered the general area, so off I went to Houston Avenue and Dart Street. I turned the corner onto Dart and poof there it was.
So, I wasn't exactly in Vegas. I was still in Houston on Old Katy Road for OutReach United's Casino Night fundraiser. Two of my friends, April Ayers and Bryan Hlavinka, were co-chairs for the event. I'm not big on casino nights but it is always fun to mix and mingle with friends.
