Gentlemanly Calling

My best friend visited this weekend. You may also refer to him as Not Craig, the Gentleman Caller...

He used to live in Houston. Before we met, for many years we worked just buildings apart, probably passing each other in the tunnels on our daily lunch runs. We never knew each other while in Houston, meeting once he had left to live in the grand city of Austin.

An amazing time was had. We were able to hang out with some of his oldest friends. We hung out at some new spots, visited old haunts, including one of the infamous spots of my past.

We discussed what we want to do in the next couple of years at greater length than we have in some time.

A Summary of the Visit by the Gentleman Caller


Dave & Busters

$40 steaks

$45 half bottles of wine

3:10 to Yuma

A bar named Stetson’s (The Legal Beagle in me wondered…is that copyright infringement?)



More Freebirds

St. Arnold’s

Conversation, lots of wonderful conversation

Cuddles, lots of wonderful cuddles

My favorite Sunday event – sleeping in and football

I don’t believe I am poetic enough to say how wonderful this visit was. How much we both needed it. And how hard it was to watch him leave.

Fianna and Not Craig sittin' in a tree K.I.S.S.I.N.G. First comes love then comes MARRIAGE then comes Fianna pushin' a baby carriage!

Oh you took it off too? Wow that WT sure has some power over us!

Sounds like a great weekend! Hopefully you'll have many more just like it....only without having to watch him leave at the end of it.

It's perfectly fine to use Stetson's for a bar. As long as they don't use it for a hat.
Think of Rainbow bread and Rainbow vacuums.

Not Craig is a lucky man.

Oh, and the whole "Not Craig" thing is double funny if his real name is Craig and he told you not to use his real name on the blog. :P
