Something Strange Is . . .

Going On . . .Ghostbusters!

Well, not quite Ghostbuster strange, but still strange.

About 4am this morning, the three different vehicle alarms all slowly started working. And by the time I left at 5:30 they were all working with no problems. And they continued working all day and into this evening.

I did confirm last night that the sensor part of the Mighty Mules is working.

If you take the cover off the head, there is a red LED that flashes when a vehicle is sensed going by. And that is happening.

But the signal is not getting to the receiver inside the shack. Which takes me right back to the idea that some sort of interference is happening in this area.

I’m not sure there’s really anything that I can do about it, but it does explain a lot.

Well, the rig didn’t get moved today either, but tomorrow for sure. Yeah, right. The move was called on account of having lunch in Cuero.

We headed into town about 11:45, but before lunch we made a stop at Donut Palace for some more of their great pastries and breakfast croissants. I take one of their Bacon, Egg, and Cheese croissants into work every night and it makes a delicious meal. Then I’ll have half of one of their Cinnamon Twists about midnight with some coffee to keep me going the rest of the night.

Lunch today was Maya Mexican again, with this time having beef, chicken, and shrimp fajitas. But accidently. We actually ordered the same Fajitas Regias that we ordered last time, with beef, chicken, and grilled sausage. But something was lost in translation and we got the shrimp instead. But it was still good and we have leftovers to boot.

After lunch we drove over to the HEB to get gas for the truck. I don’t know exactly why, but the HEB here is consistently 10 cents a gallon cheaper than any station in town, even the Wal-Mart right down the street. Then after topping off the tank, and get the discounted carwash, we headed back to the rig, just in time for me to be able to get in a couple of hours more sleep before I leave for work about 4:45pm.

As far as the rig move, the scheduled rain has been pushed back to Sunday now, and the longer we go without rain the dryer the ground gets, but we’ll probably still give it a try tomorrow.


Thought for the Day:

Movie theater popcorn costs more per ounce than Filet Mignon. But they won’t let you eat Filet Mignon in the theater.
