I had a very unusual dream this morning. It was about me trying to get contacts for my daughter when she was under 10 or so I would say. They were huge things and I was suppose to put them in her eyes. I only got to the part of getting ready to do it and then woke up. Usually my dreams seem to be the same ones I’ve dream’t over and over again.
Work was slow again today, brought in the left-overs from my onions and sausage hoggies I’d made last week.
Texted Becky about possibly meeting up for lunch and possibly also giving her a ride to the airport. She called back saying that she has rented a car to get some last minute errands taken care of and then head to airport. We decided to hit Buckhead and the Stillhouse for lunch @ 11:30. When she arrived there a bit earlier than me she found that the Stillhouse was closed for lunch. Actually, she never found the Stillhouse. There was a sign out on the large sign out front of the Andrews Building but neither of us found the actual restaurant. There were only about 2 or 3 places actually open for lunch. I walked down south a bit more and found a place called “One Star Ranch, texas BBQ” and we decided that would work.
The One Star Ranch, is basically a hole in the wall place. Not bad BBQ actually and a very rustic feel. Lots of rough wood picnic tables and vinyl covered tables inside. It has a bar and a ton of bills on the walls. I should have take photos of the walls but we ate outside and I only went inside for a short time. The gals working there were cute in a very earthy kind of way. One gal had the outline of the state of Illinois on the back of her arm, didn’t get a chance to ask about it and tell her I was from Chicago. Our waitress was a cute auburn haired gal, more normal looking than the rest, another was tall and thin with faded leopard pants, like I said, unique. When we arrived only a single table was there, two guys from an office. When we left about 8-10 tables were seated. One full of female YUPPIES.
Becky felt bad that she may not get what she wants from the house, also the place was a wreck compared to what it was before she left. I feel bad that she has lost so much on this and used her frequent flyer miles to come here and accomplish so little. The real estate dude she has sucks bigtime as well, not a go-getter. She left today about 3pm and will be back in Seattle by 8pm.
Met a cute gal, Susie (Susan) who has two young boys and is a single mom. She’s a speech therapist and went to school in Illinois somewhere. A Bears fan but not a Cubs fan. Had also lived in the Wrigley Field area of Chicago for a time. Also met a nice guy, Drew who has a daughter and the same political views as I do. We both think term limits, laws created apply to ALL, & no lifetime benefits are a way to start cleaning up our political system. I was also asked again tonight if I know that I look like Billy Joel.
