...is a restaurant on Central Avenue just north of Roosevelt near downtown Phoenix. I went there tonight as a 2nd choice of restaurants because the place at which I had hoped to enjoy dinner was closed for this one night. So, a coworker, a young agent, who came out to dinner with me suggested Portland's. She made a wonderful choice. We split an appetizer of BBQ ribs, fall off of the bone type that tasted great. She had a couple of appetizers and side dishes for dinner - scallops - au gratin potatoes and such and it was delicious. I had their fillet of salmon dinner over a bed of sauteed spinach and white beans; it was scrumptious to say the least. A delicious dinner shared with good company is an excellent thing even though we just talked about ordinary things like family, married life, work and so on. That over it was then back to the cell room and to my blog for me. I may sneak out later for a whiskey or two, and to enjoy the music of The Waters, at The Turf Accountant for an hour or so. Other than that, I expect it to be a quiet night. Still though, it would be nicer still to be at home for a quiet night, snuggled up close to my darling on this cold winter's night in NY. Oh well, only a month and a half more to go before I am home again and by then the first blossoms of Spring will be blooming.
...has ahold of me even though if I do attend tomorrow's (or Sunday's) Crossroads of the West Gun Show in Phoenix I cannot buy a gun. I don't know what it is about gun shows, but I do enjoy them even when I don't buy a thing. I guess it is simply because I like guns and enjoy shooting as much as I do. So, regardless of the fact that I cannot buy a gun at this weekend's show, I will be there at least one of the two days that it runs. Well, really I could buy a gun, then have it shipped to an FFL dealer in my home state, but the thing is it would have to be an earth shattering bargain to make the extra FFL transfer expenses worth it. Thus, I will attend but not purchase any firearms. Of course, that does not mean I can not buy accessories and the like and as usual I will probably spend a tidy amount when there. If you are at the show, keep an eye out for me and stop me to say hello if you happen upon me.
