Day 36, A Day of Errands

On Sunday, Mama and Daddy got their hair cut.  They used that app that Great Clips has where you can check-in online. Mama said the place was crowded when they got there and she felt a little bad moving ahead of the people that were waiting, but that is how it works.  She heard other people asking about it as she was getting her hair cut.  

They stopped at Petsmart to buy us more food.  Daddy said he thinks we are going over our food budget and we need to chip in on the air conditioning bill.  He is so funny.  LOL  We haven't seen the Petsmart here, so Mama took photos to show how classy it is.

You can see these if you look closely at the first photo.

Mama said she laughed and laughed the first time she saw it.  The inside is just normal, but the outside is so classy. 

They ate lunch at Pappas Seafood House.  As you may remember Mama is allergic to shellfish and she really doesn't care much for other fish.  She eats at seafood places with Daddy because she can always find something to eat.  She was surprised that she only had two choices yesterday.  One choice was a steak that was $35.  She thought that a a bit pricey for lunch.  She chose the Chicken Linguine Lafayette linguine tossed with grilled chicken breast, mushrooms, spinach, broccoli, garlic & extra virgin olive oil.  She said it was the best chicken she has ever tasted.  It almost tasted like a steak.  She brought some of it home for us and asked us if it was the best chicken we had ever tasted and we said it was.  What did she expect us to say?
It tasted much better than it looks in this photo.  This is the lunch portion.
They had mozzarella sticks as an appetizer.
The mozzarella sticks were huge!

They also had dinner salads and they were very large.  No pictures because Mama forgot to take some.

Dad had the Blackened Catfish with Pappardelle Mardi Gras

Andouille sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes & basil in a tomato cream sauce.  This is the lunch portion.

Dad said that he really liked the catfish.  Yes, Mama took the photo of his food even though he doesn't like that.  The portions were huge at this place, but the prices were on the high side.  Actually, Texas does seem to give huge portions of food.  They are not sure if they will go back even though it was so good.  Mama said she can't imagine the chicken being that good again and she would be disappointed.  She still wants to go back to Saltgrass and Willy's before we leave Houston.  Mama jokes that she is eating her way through Houston.

Mama called her bank to see about having a debit card sent here.  It is not going to happen.  The bank will only mail it to our home address and since our mail is being forwarded, it would just be sent back to the bank since it can't be forwarded.  They cannot mail it directly to us.  Dad's debit card is working, but Mama was hoping to get a back up one in case something happens to his. She will just have to be really careful with it.  She plans to use it at Walmart and that is all.  She will get cash when she makes purchases and she will pay cash everywhere else.

She asked the bank lady how the crooks use stolen credit card numbers and she said that they make new cards. The bank lady agreed with her in that the crooks used a skimmer at the restaurant and that is how they got our card numbers.  It happens all the time.
