Good morning, Box. :) Muggy start to the morning but I just got a nice walk in and now it time to contemplate errands and what order to do them in.

For those keeping track in other threads, this post has absolutely no substance and should not be counted towards any post totals. I apologize in advance.

With respect to errands, I usually enjoy starting at the beginning and seeing them through to completion. I am trying to comply with your footnote.;)

That is interesting, because I usually prefer to start in the middle and jump around a bit.

Safe travels today and enjoy your free beer. :-: Inspired by the GME's pictures, we are going on safari today.*

Top Of The Morning, Box.....

Well, it's way beyond muggy here in south Looziana.....

Our very tropical air is too thick to drink and too thin to plow.....:eek:

And our lawn appears to be taking on jungle-like characteristics (the cat is out there, somewhere, locked & loaded and waiting for prey).

So it's time to refuel the riding lawn mower (affectionately known as "lil' tractor") and have at it.

To be followed by a suitable beverage iced to perfection, of course.....:p

Unfortunately I'm visiting you 6 weeks prior to OMGBBQ. If there is an outlet in IAH from which you want anything, however, let me know and I'll happily fill a carry-on bag with all sorts of scented goodness for the IAH-ANC flight. :D

RNE Aug 7, 11 9:02 am

After a long, lurid love affair with Chase, I am preparing a Dear Jamie letter because I applied for the Marriott Premier Rewards card a fortnight ago and I'm still waiting for a decision—which after this long probably means no dice. :mad: Yes, by the way, I called Chase to verify they have my application.

Now, I admit I have 10+ Chase cards of various stripes and the bank may rightly balk at giving me another one, but I push upwards of $70,000 annually though all my Chase cards. That's not chump change and upsetting my applecart (yes, "applecart" is one word—despite what spellchecker may say) is just plain bad business. :td:

Mornin' Box....

BBQ joint recommendation in Houston: Luling City Market, www.lulingcitymarket.com

Some of the best in town. They've been in operation for many years and still serve superb BBQ (had lunch there several weeks ago). Downside: they are not real close to IAH, being located on Richmond just "inside" the I-610 West Loop freeway near the Galleria district.

We will hold this reservation until midnight Mon., Aug. 8, 2011 in Cleveland, OH
 
Ummm. Is it well known how to "hold" a reservation on CO.com or did I stumble onto something unknown?

This is not a secret. About 6 months ago, they would hold only until 5PM the next day although the reservation said it would be good till midnight, but this seems to have changed back to midnight. I use this to hold the reservation until I can get to the office and have my secretary put the flight into my master calendar. I have not learned how to do this on UA.bomb but I am sure someone out there can tell me.

Haha, that's cheating, given the actual world-famous City Market in Luling, TX is 140mi away. :p

Roger that, but the Houston location has been there for a long time as well.....although it would still be a stretch to attempt to have lunch there during a connection at IAH!

You could always load up at the IAH Salt Lick. Wrong, just wrong.

Woah, WHAT? Where is there a Salt Lick in the IAH airport?!?!? I know there is one in AUS.

ACK! I totally confused my airports. Sorry. You're right, it's at AUS. I was thinking that sbm12 was in AUS as part of his "little" trip.

Unfortunately the one in AUS is no replacement for the real thing. :(. They do have an awesome little taco stand near the first checkpoint though.

The Salt Lick in Driftwood is the Real Deal.

I've been going there since I attended U.T. Austin the early 70's (I also believe I actually graduated from U.T., although details are bit hazy from those ancient days when the Armadillo World Headquarters was still around).......

No one mentioned anything about free beer. Next thing you know you're going to start mentioning bacon.:p

I was ready to buy a fully refundable ticket just to clear security to go get me some BBQ! Hahaha

Love love love me some salt lick. I do believe that it is one of the stops at the Austin Do in April.

Ah, I misread your post. I was wondering how OMGBBQ and IAH were tied together but just assumed I was missing some connection. :p

As for edible souvenirs from down yonder--well, nothing specific, but feel free to consider the recommendations of anyone else who posts their suggestions. :)

Welcome indeed! Was nice to meet you at the IAH DO. I didn't get much chance to chat with your side of the table. We were too busy being loud on our end...
