So THAT'S why he's famous...

Well, I think it's safe to say that Tag was impressed with Famous Dave's Barbecue last night. Let's recap...

Left out about 8:00 for Kyle's yesterday morning. He called and asked me to bring my monitor, since it's smaller and thus, easier to lug around. Ate breakfast at Cracker Barrell. Then it was off to Columbia State in Tennessee for the All That Dance recital. Once we got off the interstate, it appeared we were getting farther from civiliation, so I spotted a hottie at a Shell station pumping gas and told K to pull in and ask her for directions. Turns out we were on the right track. There were two shows, at 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM. Each of them lasted just under two hours, which was nice.

The arena was really nice, much nicer than the Princess. I got a spot in the balcony on the left hand side. I don't know why, but hotties came up to sit beside me for both shows. For some reason, T and K found that ever so entertaining. During a break between the shows, we headed to a gas station for some funyuns, hot fries, and combos--lunch of champions. While there, we spotted the Back to the Future car, which was apparently there on display... or not.

Three observations from the weekend:
1. The college campus was definitely the nicest part of Columbia, that we saw, anyway.
2. The dancing at Dancers Inc. and RCE was a lot more advanced.
3. Lots of hot attractive ladies have daughters who take dance lessons.

We got out of there around 6:30 and it was time for Famous Dave's, an olfactory delight most people only dream of. The wait wasn't too long, maybe 20 minutes or so. The food was even better than normal.. tender ribs, juicy buttery corn, tangy buffalo wings, delicious fries, etc. etc. etc. We had a confusing conversation with one of the servers about Dave:

"Is that Dave?"
"No, that's Larry."
"Dave's an Indian."
"Did she say Dave's in India?"
"No, Dave's an Indian, a native American."

After dinner, Tag wanted to stop off at this ice cream place called the Marble Slab Creamery. They mix your ice cream flavor on this frozen marble slab, as the name would indicate. We discussed the brain-storming session that must have led to this idea:

"I'm telling you, people will come. If we put a frozen marble slab in there and mix our ice cream while they wait."
"That's crazy."
"No, I'm telling you. People will come. We can charge four dollars for a small cup. People from Alabama will come. They will be amazed."

There were lots of other funny exchanges, but for some reason, I can't recall any at this moment. Tag, K, and I seem to get along really well. Amber called while we were at Famous Dave's. I was like, "What are you doing?" She said, "Walking on the boardwalk." Don't tell me that! lol I got home around 11:30 last night. Just been relaxing mostly today. Bobbie called today. She is home just for the day, and is heading back to Montgomery tonight. In other news, it looks like my beach trip may be called off. What is it about me and beach trips? Oh well.

One more funny:
"I'm gonna be honest with you."
"You're dating someone else?"
"I'm gonna be sick."
"I'm the one that should be sick. YOU broke up with ME."

"Shed a tear cos I'm missing you. I'm still all right to smile. Girl, I think about you every day now..."


  1. Yes Indeed... FD is the best BBQ place on the planet. I was thinking today,last night was only the second time in my life I've eaten ribs. The first was during the MG2001 trip when we spent one night in Mobile and ate at Dick Russell's Famous BBQ joynt. The ribs there sucked.

  2. man...stop it!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your making me hungry!

  3. why does tag not have a blog?

  4. Good question. My best guess would be that his wife won't let him blog. LOL Just kidding. Why does everyone not have a blog? It's free, it's fun, it's a pleasure.
