Dinner and a TV Show.
Last night we went to the Dogwood Cafe. It was good as always. Our waitress was awesome. She was very happy. It made our dinner much more enjoyable.

Harpoon Octoberfest was on tap. Rob Gonzalez was playing tunes on the piano and singing.

We had such a great time that we put a few dollars into the jar that was sitting on top of Rob's piano.

When we got home we watched the first episode of 24. I watched it for the second time and my wife watched it for the first time. For me, the second watching was a good as the first. That show is very well done. We had to watch it before 9:00, because that's when Fox was replaying this week's episode. Fox is so smart. I love the fact that they replay this show during the week on both Fox and FX. This week's episode was as good as the first. It also introduced some new twists and turns. I was shocked at some of the violence. Good stuff. It's just enough to keep the story moving.

Taking the dead guy's finger for fingerprinting was something I've never seen before. Shocking. Especialy for network TV.

How about the ending where they whacked that girl's arm with a tire iron? Yikes!

That type of violence and gore is more palatable to me than the stuff they have been showing on ER recently.
