chorizo cabrito

Daylight Savings Time comes once a year. Accordingly, one would imagine that, post-time-change, 7 a.m. would not seem so dark and early. This morning I arose at 4 a.m., after a dream in which I was married to someone else who had instructions from a malevolent higher being to cause me bodily harm. It was all a bit like an episode of the Twilight Zone merged with a comic book merged with a 50s sitcom.

I read about the small town of Albany, Texas, which I wish to visit soon. Its art museum in an old jailhouse sounds fascinating. I'm also gearing up for Saturday's Dallas Auto Show. My car is nearly at 155,000 miles.
Soon I hope to get a new car, and this particular auto show will provide valuable intel about cars with high gas mileage and a fun sound system. The paper says that Gen Y kids want their cars to be wired up and interconnected, and that they eschew traditional driving pleasures.

We ate good sushi last night at Allen's new Chinese buffet place, Grand Asia Palace. As I read this morning about this place to stay or that on the road, I recalled a woman at a place we stayed saying "It's so nice to meet fellow bed and breakfast people!". I must admit that I am not "bed and breakfast people". I'd rather have raisin bran at the Holiday Inn Express than eggs benedict with goat chorizo at the bed and breakfast. But it's good to be able to converse with people, no matter their choice in accommodated meals.

Ah, for a hook, a line, a rod, a reel, some worms, and a stray afternoon on the Blue River in Oklahoma.
