THIS Thurs – Cheryl’s Gone at Big Bear

I just found out I’ll be eating at Thai-Xing beforehand.  What a day.

This is the first image of Thai-Xing a Google search yields. I used to work with the guy on the left at Garden District selling plants. He was a good guy. And the reading will be as good as the food the high level of camaraderie and general good feelings this picture implies is.

Here’s the announcement for Thurs:
