Last Day, at Last

Today we FINALLY went out for Texas BBQ! We went to a place called Hard Eight, which was very good, but not the best I've ever had -- and I have to admit, I was rather disappointed in the choice of music in a Texas Roadhouse BBQ joint-- plain Nashville pop, the usual boring crap. I'd been lead to believe that in Texas, Texas music was king. Maybe that's only in Austin (pouts). I wanted to hear Joe Ely or Robert Earle Keen over the speakers, not Toby Keith and Taylor Swift.

Anyway, the work is done and I head home tomorrow. I'm eager to be there, I miss my cats and my wife and even the dog (not necessarily in that order, sweetie! :) ).

After the Midday Meal of Tasty Meats (I had some smoked turkey, a few ribs, and a little sausage) I went down this evening to the "Social" and filled up my plate with salad. I don't recommend Banquet brand's "spaghetti and meatballs." No flavor at all. I'm glad I went down for the salad. They had a nice complimentary Chardonnay, too.

I guess I'll watch the Veep debate. I only hope Ryan doesn't run roughshod over poor ol' Joe.

Yay for BBQ! If we ever get to Austin, this is the place I told you about: County Line BBQ.

I'll check in with you and Barb tomorrow to see if you're up for company or if you just want to collapse.

If Austin was closer to Dallas I'd have taken the car and gone down there, but it would have taken FAR too long with too little sleep, especially with the snooze-fest days I was working through!

Next time for sure.

Austin > Dallas, for sure. I agree with sillymagpie about County Line, but I'd also recommend The Salt Lick, which is EVEN BETTER. Unfortunately, BBQ's one of those hit-or-miss things. And Dallas is all about the country pop. Austin is far more true to the Texas roots. Because Austin is AWESOME.

Yay! for going home, and have a safe flight back!

Joe Biden is friggin' fantastic. And Martha Raddatz was the best moderator I've ever seen.

I should have gone over to the Salt Lick, there was one not far away. Ah, well. Next time!

And DEFINITELY Austin.
