Monday started with “Walking Away the Pounds.” Wasn’t too bad with my thick socks and walking shoes. (Explanation later) Walked two miles this morning!
Next, the usual MMM, followed by the church board meeting. I didn’t attend. Came back to the Q and decided to trim the dead seed pods and limbs from the trumpet bushes by our site. The ice storm got them, but they are beginning to put out leaves.
Don came home with Nurse Barbie with him. You see, yesterday, as I was sweeping up some broken glass, I must have swept a sliver into my sandal, then promptly stepped on it and drove it into my foot. I was helping Carilyn and JoAnn with the tea honoring all the widows in the park when this happened and hobbled around the rest of the afternoon. Don was determined to find someone to help me get the glass out of my foot and we learned this morning that our neighbor across the street was a new member of the First Response Team… she’s a nurse!
At the MMM this morning, Sarah, activity director, had told us about Gamba’s Grill just down the street, where you can get the Best hamburger. She said they also have really good shrimp. Gamba is Spanish for shrimp. Well, Don was now hungry for a hamburger, so away we went to find Gamba’s Grill. The owner said they have been at this new location for about six months.
Don’s half pound hamburger was served on a fresh bakery bun which he said was, indeed, very good, as promised by Sarah. Sorry, I got side-tracked and didn’t get a picture of the burger. Don didn’t eat his fries and neither did I… applause, please… that’s a big deal.
I had the grilled fish filet and three gambas with rice and salad. I added a little hot salsa and a little gamba cocktail to my rice and, MAN!, was it good. The fish and shrimp was also delicious. Again, no picture. Hmmm. I was hungry. I also did not eat any chips with salsa…. more applause, please.
Gamba’s Grill was a very enjoyable experience and we will be back.
