Houston- Hurrahs and Hurricanes-

September 18, 2009 at 2:53 pm 3 comments

In between visits to the medical center I have managed to visit a couple of places Target where, at least in the one I went to, was way more expensive for some items ( tea kettle for instance) than the Lorain store. There are suburbs with the Village tag :).. such as Rice Village.. which is more upmarket and has a British shop where I was able to purchase tea and crumpets 🙂 even if the flag was backwards 😦

Since yesterday was a free day we went to Galveston to see the effects a year later of Hurricane Ike. It was interesting in the fact that the storm surge created so much damage but the wind damage was picky almost what you would expect from a “tornando”. Fish Tails, where we had lunch, only received a couple of broken windows. I can’t upload the photo of the Flagship Hotel that was directly across the street but you can see the damage here http://swamplot.com/tag/hotels (I so miss my own computer!!!!!!!) . There is not a lot of litter but the bugs and lizards YUK!!!!!!

    I think I have asked this before. What is a crumpet? I assume it is something you eat.

    Yes you have and yes it is….it is similar to an English muffin but nothing like it really except you toast it and butter it ….however the “other english slang for crumpet is sex….although they don’t sell that at the British shop.at least I don’t think they do 🙂

    We can start a new saying, “You can have your crumpet, and eat it too.”
