What a great Tuesday. It seems like it was just the other day that Mikal and Tim stopped through Kilgore on their way back to his hometown. Mikal drove over and we were just planning hanging out and eating some great fun, we did and it was better than ever. I was really happy that he made it over. We, I, decided that we would have a little Cajun food to celebrate his Louisiana roots. He had a plate of frog legs, alligator, oysters and catfish. I am not there yet, but as long as he was happy, I was happy. I stuck to my usual shrimp and fries and they were great. We would spend most of the afternoon driving around Kilgore, giving him an idea of the layout of the town and I think he got a better understanding of why I really enjoying living in this town.

We also looked at some real estate that was on the market. If you have never just gone around town looking into other peoples homes, it is a lot of fun and I would suggest that you do. It sounds childish, but it is pretty cool looking at how other people live.

 

It was a hot day and so we decided to take a quick power nap, ok, power sleep. We got up and had a great dinner. I cooked some really good burgers made with black truffles and truffle oil stuffed with blue cheese. It was going well until my grill ran out of gas and I had to transfer then into the broiler inside, not bad. We ate and had some pretty good wine to go with the burgers along with some fresh strawberries and sorbet. We played this game called, ‘who can stay up the longest” or as they referred to it in other parts of the country, “I not sleeping, I am just resting my eyes.”  I think I won. We had a good night sleep and got up and went to another one of those places I reviewed, the Burrito Shop, and enjoyed a good breakfast before he headed out on the road. It was another great visit with a great friend. I hope we will see each other before he heads back west and then east. Be safe my friend and thanks for a good visit
