Bundle Up. We’re going to the Beach!

Last night after we got home I got a call from our friend’s, Bob and Maria, who we had just had lunch with earlier in the afternoon.

When they got home, they found that their refrigerator had lost power. So I led them through pulling the fridge out from the wall and checking the outlet, which was dead.

At this point I told them to find an extension cord to power the fridge for the night and that I would come over this afternoon.

So this afternoon Jan and I drove over to their house in League City to check things out. What I found was a funky breaker that had blown and was very hard to reset. But after I got it unstuck, it moved just fine and power was back on the outlet.

I told them to keep an eye on the breaker and if it acts up again it may have to be replaced.

Bob also has an older model Kindle with the keyboard that won’t charge. It feels like the connector inside the Kindle has come loose and fallen back inside the case, so I bought it home to take it apart and see if I can do anything for it.

Leaving Bot and Maria’s we headed down to Galveston for our meetup with our friend. But we were going to get there about an hour early so we decided to drive the Seawall for a half hour down and a half hour back.

The first thing we noticed was all the people on the beach. The second thing we notice was that since it was 53° every one was bundled up in heavy coats and sweat pants. You’ve got to really want to do the beach thing to be sitting out in the sand at the water’s edge swaddled like an Eskimo.

We drove all the way down to the Galveston Island State Park before we turned around and headed back. I guess I was expecting to see some Harvey damage but everything looked fine.

We got back to The Original Mexican Café, about 10 minutes before 4pm and got seated, just as our friend Linda showed up.

Jan and Linda started working together back in 2001, and then a few years later she up and moved to Billings, MT. So when we started RV’ing in 2008 we stopped by every time we were in the area. Then a few years ago she moved back to Galveston where she still owned a home.

Normally the food here is always great, but Jan got a Pollo ala Parrilla with a chicken breast  that died of old age . . . in the Stone Age. It was thin, tough, chewy, and even hard to slice. She almost sent it back, but had enough other food to make up for it.

After finally saying our goodbyes about 6:30, we headed back home, on the way passing by the Houston Magical Lights that I’ve mentioned in the past.

Really looks great, and hopefully we’ll get to take Landon there soon.

Do Sheldon and Leonard know about this?
