Yes, peanut butter on my hotdogs. And a big change in the weather.

Where are we today ?

          No that was not a typo, I do love peanut butter on my hot dogs. How did I discover that? About twenty years ago I had a regular customer in my restaurant that always ordered a foot long hot dog with peanut butter. So I tried it and got hooked. 
          Then a year or so later our neighbor had a bunch of friends over around a backyard campfire and they get out the hot dogs, sticks and peanut butter. Well about 16 or 20 of us got right into and completely finished up three dozen hot dogs and two small jars of peanut butter. Now we were not really young kids, all in our mid to late 40's. Fresh air, good friends, a campfire, late night and maybe even a bit of alcohol was consumed by some, but we all enjoyed the dogs. 
          To this day I still enjoy peanut butter on my hot dog and a few other things too like pancakes and an awesome sandwich I have made for many. Tired of a boring sandwich try this. It sounds weird but the flavors are awesome! Sandwich builds like this, peanut butter, jam, ham or bologna, mustard, cheese slice, tomato, lettuce and mayo a touch of salt and pepper too. There ya go now you know I am weird right? Try it !
        So that explains the peanut butter thing? 
this where we are
        Lets get back to here at Abita Springs (small town about 2,400 people, love small towns). Yesterday when we arrived it was like 90f (32c), but the weather Gods tell us severe weather is on its way here. Tornado watches and all that stuff, around 5 am, but the path is thru Baton Rouge LA, about 75 miles west of here. So we do the usual check the weather channels, local weather station on TV, weather radio etc.. just to keep an eye on things. 
        Not much happening in the morning other than its getting cooler, windy and dark skies. It was very warm overnight had the windows open for a nice breeze and also if it rains the water on my face will tell me to close the windows.
        About 7 am going for a walkabout at the far end of the campground and all of a sudden the skies opened up! Man its coming down, cats, dogs and buckets, know what I mean? Its pouring out, we getting rain. Luckily I am right by the pavilion/laundry so I can seek shelter hoping it will stop soon. Well I am watching and waiting, and waiting, and waiting some more. Power goes out, the rain is not letting up, the temperatures drops about 10 degrees. I'm getting chilly, no rain coat and no umbrella and I really don't want to get soaked to the skin and catch a cold, been waiting an hour now. So I phone Suzie and ask her to come pick me up with the car, please. What a woman, hops in the car still in her nightshirt she drives to pick me up, yup I love that woman, no I did not wake her up. Back home and hardly wet at all. Then guess what? The rain lets up, didn't stop just let up.
this keeps up will need a boat to get back to the RV
        Any who, shortly after 9 o'clock into Abita Springs for a Chiropractic adjustment, just a tune up to keep me going. By the time I get back home its soon time to make lunch. The winds have died down and the rain stopped but really cool here 55f (16c) just about the same temperature as back home at 1:30pm.  Weird weather for sure what huge extremes everywhere.
        Afternoon just hanging out, reading, computing resting my back a bit, hot shower and a few walkabouts the resort. Almost nice weather but not quite, know what I mean?? Overcast , cool, drizzly a bit, but hey not real cold so thats just alright!
a broken tree carving, pretty cool
         So its soon time for supper, not nice BBQ weather, but I can whip up some comfort food. We have leftover chicken with gravy, boiled potatoes and peas. A very tasty hot chicken sandwich.
hit the spot  tonight
         Now can kick back relax for a bit, let the TV watch me and call it a night.
         Thanks once again for stopping in and checking us out, 
         Y'all, have a good day hear???
