Shell Bowl


Here is a nice shell style bowl. It is great color and form is pretty good. I made a companion piece to this one too. If you need a set of three let me know.

Dinner at Cafe Nova


Great food, great friends, great atmosphere, great waitress, great manager, even a great website.
This photo was after desert. I did not get one of the meal. I had a cheese plate that was outstanding. Three cheeses for $12. I had the swiss, hard goat, and the blue. wonderful presented the cheeses satisfied the palate. This is a must have item if you are into cheese or even like cheese, or even if you are afraid of cheese.
Angela got the Fried things and they were tastey. She also had the soup of the day and found it could have been the whole meal. She also got the Beets.
Joe and Joy our friends got salmon and the fish for dinner they like it muchly.
I had the Pasta Entree. I do not dig red sauces so they changed it up and went with a penne pasta and butter sauce. Rarely, have I been to a place that will make something off the menu so easily and happily. The pasta had shrimp, mussels, and lobster. It was coated in a nice parmasean cheese that melted in nicely. Probably one of the best pasta meals I have had in a long while.
The Manager Wade brought us out desert. Chocolate tort with some chesscake layer and graham cracker crust. It was a delight. Smooth and tastely. the chocolate was understated and sweet without being sugary. It was no trouble to finish it off. Everyone liked the lemon tort except for Joy. The filo dough something was good too but if chocolate is on the table why eat anything else.
So Cafe Nova located on Western and like 43rd is my most recommended new place to eat in OKC. The price may be a bit out of reach but for a treat it is most worth it.
Ice will like the bar to be sure.

Flying J


This is from the Flying J 11-15-05 around 9:30 pm. I think it is still the best price in town at $1.91. Predictions? Will gas go back up next week to gear up for Thanksgiving travel or stay low so at least George won't get any more heat for the price at the pump?

Ray at the grinder


Here is Ray grinding some glass. It is very difficult work. It takes a steady hand and a lot of patience.

French Toast for Breakfast


I had my french toast for breakfast at the 501 Cafe this morning. I really dig their FT. If you make in on a Sunday morning get there at least 15 minutes before 11 or there is a wait. Ask for Bill if he is working and tip him big as he is going to be a teacher some day.
Good coffee, too.

Turbine Blades


At the RR crossing at Britton Road this morning we saw what could be the blades of a wind turbine. These things were huge. Not a great photo as we were back a ways.
