Dinner with Marina Bob is on. We'll dine Tuesday in celebration of his newly installed teeth. According to Bob, the teeth are feeling most comfortable and able to tackle a steak dinner.
For those of you just tuning in, Marina Bob is in charge of the docks where our sailboat, Sparkle Plenty is berthed. Marina Bob lost most of his teeth following many years of Meth addiction. He's been without chompers for many years, too.
When Marina Bob told me that he was finally going to have teeth it was definitely cause for celebration. I'm also very proud of Marina Bob for no longer being a practicing addict and that he's pledged never to return to that lifestyle. And that's what this post is all about.
Cattlemen's Restaurant advertises a Tuesday special. There are also specials on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Thursday would be the last choice. Actually, eating on that day would be a deal breaker. There would be no going to Cattlemen's on a day called Kids Eat For Free. Forget putting up with a bunch of kids. Noisy. Bad manners. Running up and down the dining room. You know what happens.
Tuesday's special is a 20 ounce T-Bone steak for 20 bucks. This special comes with all you can eat salad, sourdough bread, ranch beans and choice of baked or mashed potato or rice. That should pretty much do Marina Bob's craving for a steak dinner. That's too much steak for me. It will be more like an eight ounce New York cut steak. Back in the day it was go big when it came to eating steak. When you get older you gain a bit more sense when it comes to the consumption of red meat.
Marina Bob and I will suck up a few beers in the bar. Scarf up on some bar munchies and then hit the dining room. We'll do after dinner drinks in the bar. I'll have a wheelbarrow in the bed of the truck in case one of us needs transportation out of the restaurant.
I think you could call this a hell of a celebration for Bob's new teeth.
Here's hoping that Marina Bob isn't camera shy so that I can snap a few to post here.
Show those teeth, Bob. Click!
