I Saw Sunshine

Kathi and I enjoyed our lunch with my sister, Carol and her husband Lloyd on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at Luby’s Cafeteria on the Gulf Freeway. Do people still call it that? I-45 South may be the term used for that stretch of highway, now, but I still think of it as the Gulf Freeway. Either way, the Luby’s is in Webster. Luby’s was crowded, but there was no line, just a steady stream of customers moving in and out. I noticed a few people going into the Fuddruckers next door, also. Our conversation was mostly about current events and granddaughters, but we did manage a few travel stories. Carol, Lloyd and Kathi ate fish and I had a bacon cheese steak.

After lunch, we stopped by Walmart to pick up a few grocery items, but we also used the shopping trip for exercise. We walk a lot in Walmart. It seems like on every trip we need at least one item on the opposite end of the store from groceries.

I spent most of Thursday writing. Along with the two blogs I write, I am writing a book called “Memories of Larry.” It is a memorial to my brother-in law, Larry Clark that succumbed to leukemia last year. The concentration of the story will focus on the time between when he found out he had leukemia until he passed less than two years later.

Kathi called for our mail on Monday and it was in the Kemah post office on Wednesday, but we forgot about it. We went to pick it up Thursday morning. They gave me an application for a post office box and told me they did not accept general delivery. We used to get our mail delivered to Green Caye, but they stopped that service for new arrivals last year. They still accept mail for people that have been here a long time.

After getting our mail, we drove through Starbucks for a tomato and mozzarella panini for Kathi’s lunch and I went through McDonald's for my lunch. It was a quick fast lunch, but I was on a roll writing and wanted to get back to it.

Friday was a great day. It was cool outside and we had sunshine. The fresh air was invigorating. We drove to Rudy’s and ate barbecue sandwiches there. After lunch, I continued writing.

I saw sunshine this Saturday morning, but it was gone in a flash. The wind picked up and it looks like it a winter day, except it is too warm and humid. We are having lunch with our son Christopher today. We always give him a choice of restaurants, so I expect we will eat at Jimmy Changas. Everyone like Mexican food.
Picture of some of the duplex homes at Green Caye. Lots of palm trees.

Near sunset at Green Cay last year.

Another good week at the Boozer home and looking forward to our second attempt to move north this year. We plan to leave Green Caye in mid-March for more travel adventures. Our first stop will be in the Austin area to see our son AJ. I expect we will share a few lunches with him while we are in town. Good times.


  1. I am glad you are getting so many opportunities to see your sister now that you are retired. I hope you have a nice visit with Christopher for lunch today. I am sure you will. If you see this comment on your blog before you go to lunch please tell him I said hello.

  2. Thanks for your comment, AJ. Will do.
