Kip and I had a long day in Dallas yesterday, but we had a plan for after my doctor’s appointments.
Our anniversary was last week and since we knew we had to go to Dallas this week, we decided to wait to celebrate. We wanted to stop at one of our favorite restaurants on our way home.
Bubbas in Ennis serves really good Texas barbecue, but we love their steaks. They season them just right and we always have them with a baked sweet potato that’s slathered with cinnamon sugar butter. They serve it with a fresh salad and Texas toast.
Barney was always in favor of stopping a problem before it started, which is where his catch phrase came from. He always said, “Ya gotta Nip it! Do you hear me? Nip it! Just nip it in the bud!”
I asked the server if she would snap a picture of us. I said, “we’re sort of celebrating our anniversary.”
Kip said, “Sort of? That’s a funny thing to say.”
Yes…we ate it all. We were starving and we nip, nip, nipped in the bud. That phrase can help us get through more than one life situation.
If you’ve got a little problem, you’ve got to do your part to nip it before it gets out of hand
Thanks, Barney. I’ve missed you.
