CVFD Oyster and Fish Fry: Last Sunday in February...

Anyone out riding this Sunday between Houston, Austin, and San Antone might want to drop by the Knights of Columbus Hall off IH-10, exit 693 for our annual Fire Department Oyster and Fish Fry.

Exit at 693 then stay on the North Feeder, headed eastbound and follow the crowd to the KC Hall. A million better ways to get here on any of the many country roads in the area.

Serving begins Sunday, February 23 at 1100 and ends about 1300.

Plates are $25 at the door, but only $20 if bought early.

Enjoy a ride through rural Fayette and Colorado Counties, enjoy a good meal, and support a good cause.... one that you hope you never need...

NFE

Hey NFE, what's up? (Except for the fundraiser.) We have a bunch of work in the bee yard on Saturday, Coupland VFD's fundraiser on Saturday night, but I'm really going to push the wife to catch this Sunday.

For those coming from the South of Houston who don't want to ride I10, old 90 from Richmond to Eagle Lake and then north will work.

Lots of good gravel between Brenham and Fayetteville as well including a couple of secret water crossings.

Bender... hope to see you there. I've been detailed to the drive-thru line. Please enjoy the meal, then come outside to the drive thru line to say hello. Just ask for the goofy, old retired city manager. Be prepared for oysters, fish, sides, and plenty of small town gossip.

Meriden... long time, no see... how are you? Hope to see you there.
Don't tell anyone about Dungen's Mill Road and the low water crossing of Cummings Creek. Don't mention Zimmerscheitt Road or all of the roads south of La Grange.

We don't want anyone crowding up our best routes...

Rman, hope ya'll are having a quiet year in the FD.

Ours was reasonable until this past weekend.... two horrific accidents requiring difficult extrications.

Come by for oysters and fish.

Howdy NFE, end of the year was pretty slow around here, it's been busy since the 1st though. Mostly medical calls, a couple traffic calls (1 bad, 4 car hit and run) and a couple grass fires.
Seeya on Sunday.

Thanks for posting the GPS co-ordinates...

"These 'sters were swimmin' in the bay yesterday..."

Same pitch every year... from the same monger at Port Lavaca...

Fish is cut, equipment prepped... we've been busy today.

Weather is gonna hold... 20% chance historically means we'll be dry...

Hope to see a few of ya'll tomorrow.

Hope y'all had fun and put some money in the bank. Sorry I didn't get to make it, but I spent the better part of the day prepping for Uncle's in two weeks.
