Texas, Bogie is visting

Postby bogiedr » Thu Jul 28, 2022 8:20 pm

Hello my family! Hope everyone is doing well.

We will be in Kingwood visiting family and interviewing an oncologist. We will be looking at real estate so we can make a decision on whether to move or not. Already made a friend over the phone, Dean at Dean's Rib Shack! Sounds kike a really nice guy! Anyway there won't be a lot of time for much other than house hunting, driving around to see proximity to essentials and such, oh and my sister in law and niece have two fabulous kitchens. They have threaten to beat me up if I don't cook!

We are driving as I am sure you know, a plane is not a good environment for me. Wish us luck, I am sure the good Lord will get us there! I will report back when we return. Oh, I have some pictures to post of smoked ribs 3 weeks ago. Smokes then on the Joe St. Louis style, they came out awesome.

Anyway, fingers crossed on this trip! Chat soon.

Once you get on I-10 it’ll be smooth sailing. Get to Houston and look for 59 North, piece a cake

Bogie, good luck in your search for an oncologist. If you need help with that just let me know.

Also, Kingwood sits along the banks of the San Jacinto river. Any house you may look at, make sure it is not in a flood plane, and hasn't already flooded up there.

Good Advice from G-Rail there, Pard.
When Harvey hit, the San Jacinto offered up some real Damage to a lot of homes that had normally been saved - - - so Good LUck and be Safe.

Amen, Dr. Railsback is right about the flood zones, one buddy of mine was trapped by Harvey and another’s house wiped out, flooded out the whole first floor. If helpful and needed, the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) offers annual flood coverage at not too horribly unreasonable prices and coverage up to $250k for the improvements and $250k for your personal property. And if your Lender is federally insured, they are required to confirm you have coverage by law if the improvements are in a “defined” floodplain. They will be required to run a FEMA map flood determination to see if the house is in floodplain or it just impacts the lot, and you have the right to demand your lender provide a copy of same; ask for the flood map too. If you see a bayou or slough nearby, a good idea to confirm w your insurance that you have good flood coverage, or to consider obtaining same via the NFIP yourself if feasible.

By the bye, MD Anderson is of of if not the preeminent oncology center in the world, but you probably already knew something about that. Best Roto Rooters in the business. Will keep you in mind, and ask the Big Man to lend a hand, if it weren’t for him I would have been legitimately dead at least 25 times and counting now, completely serious. I quit asking why a long time ago, I just say thanks and I guess you must be expecting a lot from a little, Sir.

Hello family!
We visited Kingwood and loved it. Visited with my brother's oncologist of 13 years and both the Mrs. and I came away impressed! We liked what we experienced except limited choices for groceries, it's HEB or Kroger, definitely different from Florida but, bottom line we have started the relocation blues, we are coming to Texas!! Will relocate to Kingwood or nearby. probably around November. I am praying the move will be smooth. Definitely looking forward to spending time with older brother, niece and nephew. As always I'll keep you informed and Rambo, we are coming home to Texas!!!!
Thanks for the love and prayers!!

Hey Brother, good to have you and yours in our State and, as far as grocery stores go, I think you'll find plenty more across the San Jacinto River in Humble Texas. Seems like there's an Aldis, Jo Jo's, A-1, Walmart and of course Dollar Stores to pick from. Gonna be interesting to see if you fall in love with HEB like so many Texans are?

Welcome and Happy Trails to you,
OUP/Emm :cheers: :salut: :texas:
