Mi Ranchero, Hole-in-wall, no, a hole in the wall would seem more attractive at first sight. This place came recommended by Lydia (Church secretary) and had it not I would never have gone in to the previous Pizza Hut location (just a wild guess). Inside you almost leave the country, it still looks like a pizza hut, but few waiters speak english and soccer is playing on the two televisions. Real soccer with teams like the Aguilas and Chivas. No pink Sicilian teams in this establishment. Anyway, the place is not quite Tex-Mex, but dethrones Jose Peppers for the following reasons. Quality of Food is just as good as Peppers, it even comes with that odd Mid West Mex ball with flag thing. The price is cheaper, you can split a meal due to the size and free coupons for Espinaca Dip that come in the mail. The waiters are friendly and even brought free ice cream for Beckham to eat and exchanged broken trash talk about about the US national team vs. Mexico. I highly recommend this place inspite of the scary exterior. However for Jay and George, stick to Gloria’s sweet goodness.
Laura’s future sister-in-law has asked Laura to be a bridesmaid in her wedding to Todd (Laura’s Aggie brother who lives in Dallas. He hates big overpasses, spiders and measures his confidence level by holding his had at some point between his head and toes). Do do so she sent out Barbie dolls that look like each girl and a picture of all the barbies representing the wedding party. For the record Laura is Beach Glam Barbie. Anyway I told Laura that if we let Beckham play with the barbie he may grow up to be gay based upon this one single event. Surely allowing your son to play with a Barbie will bring about covenant cursings (just a joke). Anyway, let it be known that I objected to his playing with Barbie and I must say I was a very proud father when he grabbed her by the head shook her around and finally threw her. I wouldn’t recommend it as gentleman behavior, but any rejection of Barbie at this point is a good sign. All this being said I did play with a She-ra (he man counterpart) doll as a kid and I’m not gay.
