Flu Shot Today for Me in Katy TX I got my annual flu shot today at Costco in Katy. I writing this post as getting the shot had slipped my mind for several weeks. My Doctor who is Internal Medicine specialist tells me at my age I need to make sure I get the annual flu shot. This guy is an excellent Doctor and I do whatever he tells me to do. He is a Doctor who does not just write prescriptions.  I know there are several folks who last year told me about how they never get a shot. I totally get it and understand. I had the flu several times in my lifetime and while shot is not absolute protection getting one in my case is a good thing to do.  I am writing this post to remind folks it is flu season and if you get annual shots and have done so as of yet you might want to put on your to do l...

It Must be Christmas Time during October in Katy TX Last Sunday October 2, 2016 I was in Costco Katy TX to find there were numerous Christmas decorations and gifts already displayed for sale. I had to shake my head as we have not even got past Halloween yet and but we are already getting polluted with Christmas stuff. Frankly the Halloween decorations were few and far between.  I had been in Costco the previous Sunday and there were just a couple of Christmas items for sale. Don’t get the wrong idea as I like shopping at Costco in spite of all the people who show up, especially on Sunday,  to essentially chow down on the free samples. These folks are not hungry individuals who need to stuff themselves with the free food. The majority buy very few items based on the seeing their empty sh...

Saturday Shopping - Trader Joe’s Katy TX One of my favorite places to visit and shop is Trader Joe’s (TJ’s) in Katy TX. I usually go on weekend as I do not have time to visit during any given week. Yesterday I went as I had specific items to purchase for a Sunday dinner.  October is Pumpkin Month at TJ’s as all  month long they feature numerous products containing pumpkin. The fact is TJ’s features something special every month. Just a few of the Pumpkin items include Pumpkin bread mix, honey roasted Pumpkin Ravioli, organic Pumpkin Spice Granola bark, and list goes on and on.  I usually try something unique they are featuring every month. This time I bought Pumpkin Soup Crackers which are brown rice crackers infused with Pumpkin puree.  Saturday Shopping - Trader Joe’s Katy TX

Almost Wordless Wednesday - National Dog Day August 26, 2016 Friday August 26, 2016 is National Dog Day and I wanted to reach out to everyone a little early. I think this is a great time to go to a local shelter and make some poor homeless pup a very happy dog and adopt him or her! Way too many dogs are left to die on the street or in shelters or be horribly abused. It hurts my heart as these poor dogs cannot control their own destiny but you do! An adopted dog will be extremely loyal and loving to you for the rest of their life. If you want to adopt a dog in the Katy or surrounding areas and do not know what to do and or where to go contact me at 281-904-6772 or bobgilbert2003@msn.com and I will hook you up.   The above pictures are of our small dog who is a rescue dog. She is fiercely...
