I thoroughly enjoyed a sunny, 92 degree, windows rolled down, hair in a rat's nest, back roads drive from Belton to Fredericksburg today, with a stop for an amazing lunch at The Maxican (correct spelling) in Burnet (pronounced Burn-it). Their salsa is unusual, made from roasted veggies rather than fresh. Yummy, even though the chips were a bit stale. Next was a tiny cup of really delicious tortilla soup with a crispy tostada. Finally, I was blown away by Marsha's Special: shrimp stuffed with monterey jack and sliced jalapeno, wrapped in bacon, grilled and served on rice, along with a huge poblano pepper stuffed with chicken and cheese, covered with cilantro cream sauce, and a cup of tasty pinto beans. The only uncomfortable thing was that the chef's mom (grandmom?) likes to visit tables and rub customers on the back and shoulders. A lot. Even during your meal. And even though I like a good hug, it was just a bit too much. But she's a really sweet woman, so I gently fibbed that I was getting a cold and gave a good sniff. :-)  If I lived here, I'd have to eat here a lot, so we'd just have to have a little chat about all that rubbing.  Probably a good thing I'm passing through.  ha   www.themaxican.com 

Be sure to look at the photos individually rather than in a slide show since many have descriptions.

Well, I've tried these boots on a few times, but couldn't find them in the right color in my size. I let it percolate for a couple of weeks and finally just ordered them online. They're just TOO FABULOUS - like a verdigris leopard. So even though I won't be able to pet them until I get home, it'll be like Christmas!  So be sure to take a gander at my third, and final, pair of  Hot New Boots. (Or at least the last pair on this trip.)

Can't wait to see the verdigris boots! Let me know if you need some help breakin' em in!

Thanks SO much for the vintage Texas glass-you KNOW I loved it!

I'm glad you've decided to get back in the wild-sounds like you'll regain your joie de vivre there!

We all miss you, esp. Will and Jake. They said the other day...'I miss Reka; she's been gone a willy willy long time!'

First yard sale of the season this weekend-wish us luck! Wish you were here to get us organized!

Love ya, Trace, Dan, Jake & Will
