On the road again...

(Thanks, Willie.)

Yep, we headed out for our out-of-town weekend on schedule, stopped along the way outside of Austin at a Macaroni Grill (one of our favorite Italian Restaurants) for some carry-out, and set up our camper in time to enjoy some cannelloni, chicken parmesan, and lasagna (called “Mama’s Trio”) and a glass of red vino. Oh, and don’t forget the salads and warm Italian bread dipped in olive oil.

Hungry yet?

And this is just our first night! Hey, who ever said that camping had to be rustic? You never heard of “roughing it, smoothly?”

Tomorrow we golf in Temple, TX. The weather should be hot but breezy. I’m sure we’ll survive. And I’m sure you’re concerned, so I wanted to reassure you.

Ah, well, enough of blogging for now.

There’s another half-glass apiece of red wine in the bottle, and we’re going to slip in the DVD in a few minutes and watch a Netflix movie.

So, as the South African Goddess Michelle often says (paraphrased):

The Duke has left his blog. As you were.

Being married to an Italian woman, I have learned to love Italian food. Once you get used to a home-made sauce, you tend to get picky about Italian restaurants. THe secret of good Italian food, as I'm sure you know, is the sauce!
(Good meatballs help too.)

I'll think about you while I'm out sweating in the yard digging holes and re-arranging plants.

Yeah, we'll be thinking about you too, while we are relaxing and sipping an ice cold beer on St. Pete Beach! Maybe we can get some more video of the grandkid for you too.

I hope you are enjoying yourselves and am looking forward to seeing a whole album of photographs. No pressure! For the first time in a very very long time I can actually blog about being COLD. It has rained on and off today and the cold has gone through to my bones.

As you were.
