Bringing My Baby Back Home . .

First up, my Baby is back home. I got to Brandi’s about 1pm, with Brandi, Lowell, and Landon getting from the flight about 2, all with great tans.

And after getting our hugs, Jan and I  headed for home, with a couple of stops along the way. The first being the Saltgrass Steakhouse in Webster.

We had sour usual great meal of Wedge Salads, Steaks, and Green Beans. Always delicious, especially the Wedge Salad, which is actually why we come here instead of Longhorn Steakhouse.

Then we made an HEB stop at the FM646 location so Jan could stock up for her lunches for the next couple of days, and after that it was finally home.

Next a project update:

The Splendide dryer is still drying. Hopefully the replacement heater blower motor will work for another 20 years like the first one did. Otherwise I’ll have to kludge something like I did when the water pump went out and no replacements were available.

If you want to check out the long-running saga on the washer water pump kludge, you can find it here:









The shower leak repair is still not leaking, so that’s good. One of our blog readers mentioned using a water leak detector and another reader wanted to know what kind it was?

Since I’ve only had two leaks in the rig in 12 years, I haven’t  thought about it. So far my leak detector had been the squishy wet carpet at the bottom of the bed. But we’ll see how it goes.

I also completed the install and setup oft new OTA antenna for all the local channels. It’s amazing some of the old shows that can be found there. Shows like Annie Oakley, Buffalo Bill, Jr., Jim Bowie, and many others, all shows from the 1950’s.

And also later shows like Coach, Wings, Kojak, and Ironsides.

Now I just need to go through the channel list on the TV guide and eliminate all the ones we don’t want, and that just clutter up the listings.
