Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatar ended June 1, 2012, but the memories will always remain. It's back to Texas where I have decided...Qatar isn't cornering the market on "quirky", as I once believed. Thanks for opening my eyes to the world, Doha!

In less than a week, my wonderful in laws will be here trying to shake off the jet lag that 8000 miles tends to create. No mercy. When you're here for only a week it's chop chop. The only problem is that I haven't figured out what "chop chop" will be. It's getting a little warm here for desert excursions, but I guess when you travel that far, it's a no brainer. Like I said a few days ago, I haven't melted yet. David and I need to sit down and map out an itinerary so that next week we're not sitting here staring at one another twiddling our thumbs. But for some reason, I think if we just drove around the whole time, we would encounter some pretty unusual sites. Let me rephrase that, we would run into some usual sites. Some of those scenes we are already taking for granted, but those "new eyes" will spot them instantly. I'm thinking in the eating category, we'll do the extremes...all the way from Turkey Central to The Ritz. I'm sure we'll throw Ric's Country Kitchen in there somewhere, as well. Note, eating out is near the top of my main objective list. In the words of Gomer Pyle, Surprise, Surprise, Surprise.


A clip from an old Gomer Pyle episode for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

Not enough? Ok, here's another one...

  1. You left off their favorite restaurant. Isn't it called The Pnderosa or something like that?

  2. OMG...I let that one pass me by! I must have been blogging in my sleep. Talk about a no brainer. Can't wait to take Joan, Bill, Sherry and Bob to The Ponderosa. Maybe we'll do that for David's birthday on the 29th. Thanks, Regina!!


I always love hearing your comments. Go ahead make my day, be it the good, the bad, or the ugly...
