Happy Birthday To My Sweetie . . .


Today is my Sweetie’s Birthday, and she wants to thank everyone for all the many Birthday Wishes.

One of her presents she won’t get until we’re down in Clear Lake tomorrow and we pick it up at my client’s.

But this was today’s gift.

Tso 4

We’ve been wanting to see TSO for a good while, but we’re usually gate-guarding that time of the year, so this year’s our chance.

About 1:30 I went outside to take care of a few travel chores, with the first being to check the rig tire pressures. One thing I really like about these Hercules Ironman tires is that they just don’t leak down. Seems like I only have to adjust the pressure twice a year or so, just for the change in temps.

When I replaced our Sumitomo’s a couple of years ago, I chose the Ironman’s due to the fact that I saw so many sets on the trucks coming into our gates.  And so far they’ve been great for us.

Next up was to rewire the taillight cable on the rig, I had done the truck end about a month ago, and since we’re going to be towing tomorrow I couldn’t put it off any longer. For some reason I couldn’t convince Jan to made the 80 mile drive down through downtown Houston following the rig.

This time I did remember to stagger the crimp splices so the flex conduit doesn’t look like an anaconda after a big meal.

Finishing up I added water to the rig batteries to top them off.


About 4:15 Jan and I drove into Conroe to meet up with a bunch of other couples. We were eating at Joe’s Italian Restaurant, a place where Debi and Ed Hurlburt have been eating for years. And it turned out to be really good.

We both had salads with Ranch.]

Jan had the Chicken Alfredo,

while I had the Spaghetti Carbonara.

Both delicious and enough to take home.

Then they brought out a piece of cheesecake birthday cake for Jan,

and we all sang Happy Birthday to my Sweetie. Thanks for settng that up, Debi.

We had a large group which ended up spreading out to an adjacent booth.

Finally we headed home with a quick stop at the Wal-Mart for a prescription, getting home about 7:30.

Tomorrow we’ll head down to the Petticoat Junction RV Park in Santa Fe, where we’ll stay for the next couple of months at least.

The Word of the Day is: Salubrious 

Thought for the Day:

You shouldn’t be checking out at the Wal-Mart Pharmacy unless you’re also picking up a prescription. Getting soap and deodorant along with your 20 grocery items doesn’t count. Just sayin’.
