Most Valuable Things You have Learned...

Learning is valuable in of itself. A visit to the 92 year old Guido's Restaurant in Galveston, Tx where you see Cathy and Coraline being welcomed by the big crab on the roof, reminds me of something a waiter at this storied dining establishment taught me years ago as I looked over the menu to make my dinner selection. That nugget of wisdom is when the water is hot (in the summer) order the crab, when cold (winter) order the oysters. I have held to this code, this commandment, this screed ever since. It has served me well and again on this visit as I had the blackened fish, shrimp and scallops topped with crab and a fried soft shell on the side.

Another angle with Guido's companion restaurant, Casey's, and it's big shrimp in the background with just a small sliver of the Gulf at dusk visible upper right of the frame.

Guido's and Casey's share a kitchen, what's the difference besides 100 bucks added to your bill? You can go in Casey's in a tank top and shorts up to your butt. Guido's is a little dressy, the kind of place where your country band would feel right at home after gig, all dressed up in glitter suits.
