Now We’ll See How It Works . . .

Today I finished mapping out our upcoming Alabama trip, and making the reservations that we’ll need.

We’re leaving from Colorado River on Wednesday with a stopover in Breaux Bridge, LA and Theodore, AL. Then we’ll spend two nights in Montgomery, AL visiting old friends from when we moved from there to Houston in 1978.

Then it’s on up to our relative’s RV park in Athens, Al for five days or so, visiting relatives. And while we’ll there, we’ll make a day trip down to Birmingham to visit friends from when we lived there too.

Then on the 4th of August we’ll head back home by a different route, through Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Meridian, Breaux Bridge again, and then back to Lake Conroe on the 6th of August.

About 4pm today Jan and I drove into Conroe to have dinner at El Bosque, probably our favorite local Mexican place, although Mama Juanita’s is pretty good, too.

Jan got her favorite Pollo a la Parrilla,

while I got my usual Fajitas a la Diabla.

Both delicious as always, with plenty left over for dinner tomorrow night.

Then it was next door to the Home Depot to get the last few things I needed for my AC Baffle project up on the roof,

Coming home I waited until a little after 7pm, hoping it had cooled off, and with the overcast it really had.

It only took me about 45 minutes to mount the Plexiglass sheets on the top and sides of the AC cover.

I used heavy duty packing tape to seal the edges and lock the pieces together. In hindsight I should have used a rod or something to bridge across the two top sheets, but that’s for next time. If it works this time, of course.

So tomorrow we’ll see how it’s going to work on our trip back to the Colorado River Thousand Trails.

Thought for the Day:

I’ve always thought that the freezer deserves a light as well.
