Cathy Clark, Brandon, the Astros, McKee St Bridge and the Porch Swing Pub!!!

2371941305_07b85111b7.jpgAnother amazing day out at Minute Maid Park! Lou and I went to the Astros game today. We had a great time. The game was great and the Astros won! It was really nice to see so many nice people. Like Brandon, who saw me on TV2371932691_f9d3cf8d99.jpg and came up to introduce himself. Thank you for doing that!

I saw Cathy Clark, who was my bus driver when I was in school. Lets just say it was over 25 years ago when I used to ride the bus to school.

Cathy remembered me by name. I was so happy when she told me she use to drive me to school. Cathy works at the concession stand in Section 409 of Minute Maid and, I got to tell you, I’ve never been treated with more love and respect than from that entire food area!

2372768826_593ba917eb.jpgI think Cathy is a supervisor or some other type of important person because she was definitely in charge! What a great representative for the Houston Astros staff. Cathy, you made me feel so special and it means the world to me! Hope both you and Brandon will be a regular on my blog. Thank you both for making my day!

After the game, Lou and I went to the fabulous McKee Street Bridge and took some photos. WOW!!! 2372801080_fa310a4cba.jpgWhat a beautiful bridge and park! Lou’s friend, Kirk Farris, had single-handedly transformed this bridge and bayou area into a place that is totally cool, beautiful and peaceful! It’s just a few blocks north of Minute Maid Park on McKee Street just south of I-10.

2372900182_24194a87771.jpgOf course, taking all those photos at Minute Maid and McKee Street made us pretty hungry and thirsty so we went to the new Porch Swing Pub at Washington and Waugh in The Heights for crawfish!!! Man, oh, man, were they good! Lou had beer. I had Coke.

It was a beautiful day!

  86. Will it be a feel good morning?

  87. Probably not. By the way, I just went to Reggie’s YouTube account and found the most obscene message.

  100. hey Reggie I also think that is cool that you ran into your school bus driver after all these years that is cool

  101. Yea she remembered me first.

  102. #104 I hope you weren’t in the car when it happened.

  103. Gee you are so funny. You should be a writer. Oh I forgot you are a writer. 😉

  104. where is Patricia and Emily

  105. I don’t think they love us any more.

  106. Haven’t seen Mere here lately either. I hope she’s all right although the last time I talked to her, she mentioned that “I NEVER, EVER WANT TO SEE YOU AGAIN, HEAR YOUR VOICE OR BE ANYWHERE THAT YOU’VE BEEN, ARE AT OR WILL GO…EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” I think she may have been upset.

  107. dang Lou did she really say that what did you do to her well everybody I am having surgery tomorrow I will be back on tomorrow as soon as I can

  108. Lou it’s not the first time you have been told that.

  109. What about when they say to you, How about never? Is never good for you?

  110. What a come back. shut up. wow.

  111. You know, Reggie, nobody really likes you! The only reason people come to this blog is because I pay them to be nice to you. It’s true. Ask anyone ( well, except for Brian, Shelley, Patricia, Mere and Emily. They’d probably make up some story like they’re interested in what you’re doing on the blog.) Oh, how original!!!

  112. hey Lou, I don’t know what your problem is, but I’ll bet it’s hard to pronounce. LOL. 🙂

  113. Lou , that not true, you never paid me one red cent to come Reggie’s Blog .

  114. Hey Everybody Im on here now

  115. Well Shelley, welcome back.

  116. That’s right Tim tell him about it.

  117. I went out today got a haircut / highlightjob went to Walmart loaded up on my koolaid Starucks and 2 totebags

  118. On comment 120 Thanx Reggie

  119. Shelley you had a great day.

  120. On comment 116 Hey Lou Sweetie that wasnt nice we all like Reggie

  121. Yeah Reggie

  122. I wonder if Lou likes to be call Sweetie

  123. welcome back Shelley hey Lou you never paid me either I have no money unless you want to start paying me but I like Reggie we will be buddies 4 ever now back to Shelley I am just getting ready for my surgery tomorrow but its nothing really big it will only take about 15 minutes

  124. Hi guyes, I have been busy busy busy, alot been going on, some good some bad, but I just want to talk about the good, I sold my Kawasaki 650 and bought a polaris 2-up 800 4 wheeler it drives like a cadalac for 4 wheelers we bought and then took it out driving sat. and did not get in until after 1am in the morning that is way past my bedtime, then it took me most of the day sunday to clean it up and my husbands too. Mud can be a mess. fun but yak to clean up. It seems like we have been just going and going. My daughter asked me if she could come home for a week after she has her baby that made me feel so good, sometimes I feel like she just does not need me in her life anymore I really do miss haveing her at home. Well maybe things have calmed down a little bit, I hope.

  125. Hi Patricia glad your back. I will respond more after I finish eating. brb

  126. man Reggie I wanted to be the first to welcome Patricia back oh well welcome back Patricia glad to hear about your new wheeler but be careful

  127. Oh I will, my husband told me not to trash on it then he takes to one of the biggest mud holes, I was not ready to get it real muddy just yet, I was going to baby it a the first few times I took it out, I don’t even have a wrench on it yet! My friens were laughing at me, in the beginning of the day when we were all on our own bikes my husband was the leader in he heads straight to the mud I am cussing him under my breath and shaking my head, I was just not ready to get my preety new bike muddy.

  128. I used to have a 4 wheeler I had a Honda 4 trax it was a lot of fun I took mine in the mud and had a blast but then I sold it and wished I never would have it was a lot of fun my neighbor wants to sell his Polaris but he wants to much for it I think I think he wants 6,000 for it and I cant afford it

  129. I never had anything like that before. My brothers had a mini bike. I think that is what it was called. I think it was called a CAT. I was able to ride that a few times. That was pretty cool.

  130. You can almost get a new one for that price, I agree that is a lot. How old is it and is it a 800 or a 500?

  131. 4 wheelers are a blast, they are so much fun.

  132. I am not sure Patricia I can find out Patricia but I agree its to much I agree you can almost buy a new one for that

  133. I tell you my new drives better then any that I have been on so far, it is also fuel injected, so if we ever get to go to Moab Utah we won’t have to do any thing to the carbarator which will be a good thing. We are always talking and dreaming of going to places like Moab, Tennesse, and other places, up high in the mountains, and with some of the bikes you have to adjust the cararators, but with my new one you don’t have to cause it it fuel injected, and since is built for two we can load it up in the back of the truck, and just go. we will have to take out the tool box, but we would not have to trailor it, only thing is we no longer have the camper, but there are hotel rooms ever where and that gives me a good excuse no to cook. lol 😀

  134. there you go Patricia I agree well I am having surgery tomorrow so I am headeto bed good night everybody

  135. Good luck, I will be praying for you

  136. thanks Patricia

  137. Good Morning to all. Hi Patricia it will be fun having you here again. I hope everything goes well for Brian today.

  138. Don’t tell me I’m going to be stuck with talking to Lou all day. God I hope not. 😉 Whats going on Patricia? You going riding this weekend?

  139. Nothing much dude. What you say about it?

  140. hey everybody I had my surgery and all went great now I am home and going to lay down for a while and try to rest a bit but I will be back later

  141. Glad your back Brian. Rest and hope to see you here later.

  142. Hey everyone! Hope you all are doing well! I have a free minute while the baby naps so I just wanted to drop in and say hello.
    Also, we got a phone call a couple of days ago from the Ghost Hunters production team, they are considering using us in one of their episodes. We are still having problems with whatever is in our house so I will gladly be on tv if it means I get some help, lol.
    I have some news about Elijah but I am going to update his website with that so make sure you read it!
    I’ll get back when I can, I just cannot believe how busy its been around here! My husband is having surgery again next week also so I will be extra busy 🙁

  143. Emily,

    I will be sure in pray that things get better for you all. I’m sure it’s busy around there with taking care of a new born baby. Make sure you take good care of yourself. Keep us updated on your husband and Elijah. I will go and read the up date. Let me know when its posted.

    Oh keep us updated on the ghosts. We love you and come back soon.
    P.S Lou keeps winning, about where is Emily, I want to chat with Emily. Well Lou now is your chance. Don’t mess it up for the rest of us.

  144. hey Emily be sure and let us know when they use yall for a episode of ghost hunters I want to watch it

  145. lol Aww, does Lou miss me? 😉

  147. Maybe a little bit…but not too much!!!!

  148. hey Emily hows the baby doing

  149. Brian, tha baby has a name…it’s Morty!

  150. thanks Lou

  151. Cute little bugger! Reminds me a lot of me!

  152. well I had my surgery all went great but I dont know if I will be back on tonight I got a terrible headache and do not feel good at all

  153. Hi, We probally won’t be ridding tonight my husband has to much work in the garage plus he need to replace the top on my Miata, I have had the top for a few months now, I just need to get it replaced, I need to get caught up on house work yak!!!!!!! Good to hear from Emily I bet she is busy with Morty, it is amazing what work such a little person can bring into someone’s life. But all the work is so worth it.
    Good to hear Brian surgery went well, hope you get some rest and get to felling better, I don’t like surgury, sometimes it takes a while to get over them, I could do with out them.

  154. OK Everybody Im here to see whats going on

  155. well Patricia I have had 6 brain surgeries I had 6 tumors removed from my brain including one that was real close to my brain stem well needless to say nothing phases me I was up walking around 5 minutes later like nothing happened I am superman

  156. whats up Shelley

  157. You are tought Brian, when I had my neck surgery, I had to get 2 disc replaced in my neck, the next morning when physcial therapy came to check on me I had already been up SEVERAL times on my own, with a little help from my husband the first few times, I walked faster then they did around the wing of the hospital I was able to go home the very next day after the surgery. They was shocked that I was able to push my IV by myself and move as fast as I did, I really don’t like hospitals.

  158. I agree Patricia I hate them to I have been in and out of them since 1995 and believe me its getting old but then again I have been blessed with great Dr’s I had a surgery one time and the Dr said he would probably keep me over night just to be safe well after the surgery he said go home I said why I thought you were keeping me overnight he said why you will be walking around in less than 5 minutes like nothing happened so why should I keep you here I said by I aint stayin

  159. I think you heal better at home, I actully had a doc tell me I had a better chance of getting a staff infection if I had a operation and stayed in the operation overnight then if I had it in the surgery center and went home, WOW, I took his advise, I had the operation as an out patient and I would never go to that hospital, that is scarry when a doc will tell you that.

  160. LOL I agree well I have NEVER been told that thank god

  161. Last night I was at the Dallas Dining Out in Dallas. It was a great fun event. Instead of going out to indivudual resturants, they came to one place and had samples to eat from various resturants under one roof.
    In October, there going to be a event, called SPAM O RAMA.
    Not the computer spam, the SPAM that comes in a can. There will be juded competition of SPAM sculptures, including cocktails, food ( hope there something beside spam), carvings and prozes. This will be October 18 in Irving.

  162. Yea, NEVER EVER go to Huntsville Hospital, that is not a good hospital. That hospital has a bad reputation.

  163. I go to Patinets its a very good hospital that just opened close to my house I like it its good they treat me great and its very very clean

  164. I mean Patients I think that is how you spell it

  165. Clean is good :D, Time to go to bed, thank it is friday!

  166. I am on my way to bed to Patricia I just always like to check the blog before I go to bed good night everybody

  182. You don’t scare me, Reggie. I’m armed! In fact, I have two of them!!!

  183. Don’t give me that crap, Reggie, you know you’re going to steal the above comments somewhere down the line!

  184. Well excuse ME!!!!! I didn’t know you had it Paton.

  185. See, you even stole “Excuse me!” from Steve Martin. I rest my case, you, you…plagiaristic philanthropist!!!

  186. Brian – The baby is doing great, except that he has a cold right now. There isnt any medicine I can give him at this age so we are just having to deal with it til it passes. I must have totally missed about your surgery, I had no idea you were having surgery, did everything go well?

    Lou – Have you been misbehaving? Do you need a good old fashioned spanking??

  187. You just made his day. I bet he will answer YES!

  188. Emily, you just made my day!!!

    : >)

  189. Thought I’d steal something from Reggie since he’s so intent on using my words all the time!!!

  190. How’s little Morty other than the cold? Probably growing like a weed, handsome…just like his Daddy!

  191. Thank you. We’re all refreshed and challenged by your unique point of view.

  192. Emily and Reggie Lou allways needs spanking

  193. Shelley, are you offering your services?

  194. Oh you are just telling off you yourself blogger.

  195. Hey Lou Where’s My Money?

  196. lol Uh oh, I think I got Lou a little excited. He’s such a dirty old man 😉
    “Morty” is great, he really is growing like a weed! The outfit we brought him home from the hospital in doesnt fit him anymore and its only been 5 weeks. Here are a couple of new pictures:
