Italian sounded good (especially to us because we tire of eating Mexican food...AGAIN). Options were Macaroni Grill and Zio's Italian Kitchen. Zio's is in the area; Jerry and Carol had never eaten at Zio's so that's where we went.
As is the case in most instances of RV bloggers meeting other RV bloggers, we chatted and chatted around mouthfuls of food. We love that Jerry and Carol used to work with miniature show llamas in northern Georgia. While they worked there, we followed their blog and learned about their charges. Adorable pictures of llamas were in almost every post. They are full-time workampers (RVers who travel and work, like us).
The food we ordered went something like this: Chicken Piccata, Chicken Parmesan, Chicken Pomodoro, and Strawberry Salad. (Which of these isn't like the rest?) Bob was the healthy one who chose salad. The food was enjoyable, but instead of serving our salads first, we had to ask for them when they brought our entrees. Oops! Someone fell asleep at the wheel. The service could have been better. After we'd been there two hours, we had to ask for our checks. And then I forgot to take my to-go box. No yummy left-over chicken pomodoro tomorrow.

As for the rest of my day...I worked 7-1/2 hours as office assistant at a State Farm Insurance office in north San Antonio. I'll be there again tomorrow.
A few days ago, before it got frigid again, we put bird seed out and I swear the birds know cold is coming. We had eight white-winged doves on the feeder at once and sparrows pushing in underneath them to get to the seed. It was a bird feeding frenzy and, once again, we have very chilly temperatures in South Central Texas. Low tonight will be 37 (with wind chill will feel like 29); tomorrow night 31 degrees.
