Just Like Doc

That hat looks like it’s gonna be about $450. The shoulder holster about $300 and the belly holster about $150. The guns are $900, the suit about $400, the vest about $200, shirt, tie and pearl tack around $200. I haven’t even priced the boots, yet. Growing out my mustache a bit and growing a soul patch will not take long. I will not be taking up cigarettes, though. Being able to say “I’m your huckleberry” and look the part? Priceless.

Five Guys Coming Home

The Houston area has some decent burgers. Nothing legendary and nothing dependable, though. I was driving home from an appointment the other day and noticed construction of one of the holy temples of gluttony. My heart leaped. I stopped and thanked the construction workers and asked them very nicely to hurry up.

Five Guys started in and around the DC area and have quickly spread to over 300 restaurants in 25 states. That happens when you are a friggin’ Zagat rated burger joint. So I will be able to properly address my burger fetish near my home. What I did not know is that I could have been doing this already. There’s one already open about20 miles away from me and another that is about 40 miles away. Of course, you can drive all day in Houston and not get across it… and miss half of everything that is new along the way.
