I spotted some kind of creature in our house today… I was only able to snap this blurry image before it disappeared.

“Chicken Sh$t Bingo” Austin, 2019

こんばんは。How’s it going?

My brother and sister-in-law were in town and one of the places they wanted to go was Ginny’s Little Longhorn Saloon to play chicken shit bingo. Mariko and I had never been there before so we were very interested in going and seeing what it was all about.

As you might have guessed from the name, it’s a game where a chicken is placed on a large bingo card, and the number he poops on determines the winning ticket. If you have one of the winning tickets, you get a share of the prize money. Surprisingly, my brother and sister won! We had no idea what the prize would be, but it turns out that it was a not insignificant amount of cash. What a score!

If you are in Austin, you should check out chicken shit bingo at Ginny’s Little Longhorn Saloon. It’s a real Texas experience, with live music and two-step dancing, and buckets of Lone Star Beer. Lots of fun!

Why the Sink?

“Cat in the Sink” Cedar Park, 2019

Anko’s favorite place is the sink. Not only can she get a drop of water, but the stainless steel material must be nice and cool. Also, a decent view of the squirrels playing in the oak trees must be interesting to her. 😀

I hope you are having a great day!

Party Watch

I was looking at this Casio “Royale” in my wishlist (as I often do), and I noticed the display says “PARTY” on it! I guess it’s really “Paris”, T-4, but it cannot be a coincidence that Casio used that setting for the photo. 😆

Trapped? Or Just Waiting?

“Trapped or Waiting?” Cedar Park, 2019

Here’s a photo of Anko, looking at us from the room where we keep the cats’ food bowls. It looks as though she is trapped inside, but actually the door isn’t fully closed so she can pull it back if she wants. I thought that maybe she’s hungry and wants us to feed her… but when I check her food bowl, it’s not empty. I guess she just needs attention. Oh, cats! 🐱
