  1. I agree with Steve. It is difficult to see the work site from Harborside. It sits much farther back from the street than the other terminals. There's always cranes and equipment around there so it is difficult to tell what's "new" and what's always there. We need someone who works at John Sealy across the street who can see into the worksite from the top of the parking garage.
  2. More than likely she would be towed. Her hull has definitely seen better days and multiple repairs over the years have been made. She actually pre-dates WWII. She was commissioned just before WWI. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Texas_(BB-35)#Museum_ship She has been turned over to the Battleship Texas Foundation for repairs, so we will see if they can get her going again to actually sail. https://battleshiptexas.org/
  3. Great news about the Battleship. She's currently a "stone's throw" from my house (maybe 8 miles as the crow flies), but I'm glad they are moving her to a location that will see more traffic. They need the funds to repair her and more visitors will help with that. If you choose to visit the Battleship once she's there or the offshore museum, I highly recommend Katie's Seafood House at Pier 19. The location used to be Hill's at Pier 19 for OG Galveston people. Katie's is super fresh, delicious seafood (like caught within hours of being on your plate.) They are attached to Katie's Seafood M
  4. Glad to hear y'all made it through last week. I lost power for about 36 hrs, but I have a Generac generator. Put it in for hurricane season this past summer and never thought its first extended use would be for a winter storm. However, not having water for 4 days sucked! Collecting snow and ice melt in mop buckets to be able to flush the toilet sucked! ERCOT sucks!
  5. I live in Texas and they don't give a hoot about what I think because I don't donate to their campaigns. If this past week's experience isn't example enough of who Texas politicians listen to, I don't what is.
  6. I live in Baytown (about 45 mins. from Galveston) and I agree with Steve. Gaidos is so inconsistent that I don't recommend it anymore either. If you are a local and haven't tried Top Water in San Leon, I recommend it. Treking out there might be daunting for a visitor to the area, but well worth it if you are accustom to "off the beaten path" local places. A friend recommended I try out Flip Flops in Galveston. I'm an SFA alumni and it's owned by one as well.
  7. We should be leaving on one tomorrow ... L&S'd it to Dec. '21.
  8. A little late, but DW served 4 years in the Marines and then 8 in the Army. She was like, um, "Go Team!"
  9. I remembered this after I posted earlier...Same cruise as "Sparkly Boots". It was a Christmas cruise and there was a couple in their late 30's to early 40's who wore Christmas pajama onesies all cruise long, day and night. They also had their own "custom" metal "Yeti" style cups and straws that they drank from at the R Bar. Rarely did we go to/through the Centrium and not see them there in their pajamas and drinking from their Yeti's. Needless to say, the Centrium was THE place to people watch that cruise.
  10. I always see it in the Windjammer for breakfast.
  11. There was a couple on board with a us a few years ago that danced in the Centrium every night. She was always in sparkly/sequined boots, either bunny or cat ears, and hot pants/short shorts with fish nets. He was always in cargo shorts or Demin shorts with a Hawaiian shirt, sometimes the sleeves were missing. Didn't matter the song, they were dancing and had some signature moves. They were definitely the star of the show whether they knew it or not. As we were waiting for our departure group to be called, two ladies were sitting behind us talking about "Sparkly Boots" and wondering if they had
  12. Room service tried to kill me on Rhapsody with a quesadilla that had been on the tray for the better part of an hour. When I lifted the cloche, the sour cream had separated, the guacamole had a brown film on the top, and the salsa had a thick dark red skin that had formed. It was clear that the cloche had trapped the heat and it sat under a heat lamp for a while before delivery. Needless to say, I didn't eat it.
  13. If I detailed the quantity, I would come across as one who needs an intervention. Therefore, my response is that we get our money's worth out of the DBP.
