Visit from a Friend

About a week and a half ago I got a phone call from my friend Virginia who lives in Memphis; we work for the same company and used to be in the same workgroup but when her boss have been promoted to VP and moved to the HQ in Memphis, she hired her there as her admin. So we keep in touch and meet about once a year (last year I stayed at her house when I was there for training). V said she was coming to town for a meeting of her boss and would I like dinner with her? So we agreed that we go to our house after she is done with her meeting at 1700 and go and have Mexican food with The Husband.
Boy, that was good. Our usual hangout, La Mexicana y El Gringo in Irving on Story, a little hole-in-the-wall with simple but impeccably fresh and delicious dishes did not disappoint this time either; V polished off her enchiladas verdes with delight, and even though they were out of flan, she declared that the sopaipillas were pretty good too.
And it looks like even though she is definitely a dog person, as she declared, and does not much care for cats, BooBoo, my pencil-headed pixie-bob started to have her perhaps changing her mind regarding kitties. As silly and affectionate and pretty Boo is, he keeps winning hearts over to just how cool his breed is! Yay!

There's something fundamentally wrong with anyone BooBoo can't soften up :-) He's a most excellent ambassador for cat-kind.

Wow, not only did I find the quality much diminished from the last time I went there (including, um, some south-gastric fun the next day), but it was the enchiladas verdes too.

And boo-boo isn't pencil-headed! He's just preternaturally free from worry. :-)

Dunno, Jim, I had no problems at all. Except once one year ago with the bean dip, but never again...I guess we are just different.
And sorry, BooBoo has a much small head... especially compared to St. Marco...:-)
