Am I a lucky guy, or what?

She said I could look, but I couldn’t drool.

Since we leave for the Colorado River Thousand Trails tomorrow morning I had some things that I wanted to take care of this morning. First up was to top off my rig tire pressures. With the lower winter temps, I needed to bring them all up about 10# or so, as well as my one inside rear dual that usually needs about 20# or so after we’ve been parked for a week or so. I say ‘usually’ because sometimes I won’t have to add any air for a month or so, and then suddenly I have to again.

I’ve had this Porter-Cable Air Compressor for about 5 years now and it still works great. It has no problem taking big rig tires up to 120 # in no time. Check it out.

Next up, I checked the water level in the rig batteries. I try to do this once a month or so, but only have to add distilled water ever now and then. The engine batteries are sealed so they don’t need any maintenance, just keeping the terminals clean.

One thing I wanted to do before I forgot about it was put my 2015 tag stickers on the rig tags. They expired the end of November, but this is the first time the rig will move since then. And while I was thinking about ‘tags’, I wrapped the truck’s EZ Tag in foil and put it away in the console. We have Toll Road EZ Tags for both the truck and the rig. But when we’re towing the truck behind the rig, we have to disable the truck’s tag, otherwise we’ll get charged twice for the truck, since the system detects that the rig is towing a truck behind it.

After I finished up a few other things, Jan and I headed out about 1pm. Our first stop was back at the Twin Peaks down in The Woodlands, where we just ate about a week ago.

Jan wanted another bowl of their Creamy Tomato Soup, and I got to eat lunch around a bunch of scantily-clad young ladies. And Jan said I could look, just not drool, but that was more difficult than usual. Because tonight is the night for the Annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on TV.

And in honor of that, all the waitresses were dressed in lingerie, and in some cases, not a lot of it.

I did mention that Jan said I could look, didn’t I?

Our next stop was right down the road at the Toys R Us. We were looking over some times for Landon, checking out some things we were interested in, and trying to get some new ideas.

Then it was across the street to the Post Office for some Christmas stamps for the Christmas cards that Jan’s almost finished with. After that, and a stop at Kroger’s, we got back to the park about 5pm.

As I said, about 11am tomorrow, we’ll make the 120 mile over to the Colorado River Thousand Trails at Columbus. We’re scheduled there for two weeks, but hopefully we’ll get a call from the Galveston Bay RV Resort saying they’ve got a site for us before then. Otherwise, we’ll be back here at the Lake Conroe TT on Christmas Eve.
