Wasn't that Barry Manilow's favorite place?
Um, I think that was the Copa Cabana.

Boy, I'm back home, there was a huger snow fall, I spent the afternoon out with the snow blower, and I'm back on my diet. Anyone been to a Coco cabanas

Check out the menu... the waiters just walk by and peel off layers of meat. You have to try them all. The Parmesan Filet Mignon is to die for. I'm never going there again, they totally pooched my diet. I was too full when I left. I was expecting someone to offer me a wafer thin chocolate mint.
There's a place in Sioux Falls called the Brazilian Grill that serves that way. The salad bar alone is worth the price of the meal.
"Pooched my diet"? Can we assume that's a play on a common phrase which, if stated fully would be inappropriate for a family friendly forum?

Pray tell, what could that possibly mean?

I was told not to eat too much at the salad bar, to save room for the meat. But the salad bar was fantastic. These guys keep turning up wafting delicious smelling meat in front of your face and then asking if you want any, how do you say no to that? He's asking you and he seems like a nice guy.

Doing what the nice man asked just seemed like the civil thing to do.

I was soooooo stuffed.

Pooched [verb]: protude or cause to protude

Sounds more like norm's tummy was pooched. What's so family unfriendly about that?

Well, I was thinking more of a term common to military pilots when something goes terribly wrong.
I probably should apologize to Norm, though. I'm sure he would never think along those lines. His thoughts are far too chaste for that.

Yeah, I don't know what you're getting at. Possibly because every dog I've ever owned was neutered when I got it, and thus un-poochable.

Otis says...."It was 80F on Christmas day....what the hell is this?"

He also invites his friends Jim and Donna to come on down....they'll feel right at home...just like last time!



Regards!
We saw several inches of snow in the Los Padres National Forest in Southern California today with temps right at freezing. By 1:30 or so were were on the Ventura Highway and it was 68, sunny and warm, barely 50 miles from the snowy coastal mountains.

And we make terrible patients!
Mrs. Racer and I left for a holiday vacation the day after Christmas.

A nice drive down I-5, a stop in Rice Hill Oregon, then on to Sacramento to see my sister and her husband, and stop in Lodi. Then Bakersfield, and visit a cousin of mine I haven seen in over 40 years. Today up over the Grapevine and across the Los Padres Mountains to Ventura, then up the coast through Lompoc, Pismo Beach and tonight in San Luis Obispo.

She fell ill yesterday.

She makes a lousy patient too, especially while we are on the road.

And she is not a nurse.

She is a trooper though. She keeps to herself in the passenger seat, takes a cold pill twice a day, and I got her a couple bags of cough drops.

I think I'm gonna need to get her a box of Kleenex tomorrow though.

And tomorrow we go through Big Sur, Monterey, Santa Cruze, the Golden Gate, Point Reyes, and might make it to Mendocino.

Mendocino.
