On Friday, Bob decided to take the 5th wheel out to get the axles greased before we had to change sites in the park. He had called them the day before to let them know he would bring the 5th wheel in. They told him the place opened at 8:00 a.m. When he got there, they didn't have the correct tools to do the job and said the shop next door (which was associated with them) opened at 9:00 a.m. and they had the proper tools. As soon as the shop opened it became apparent they didn't have the correct tools or parts or whatever. Someone had to run out to get what was needed. In the meantime, the original place decided to have their staff meeting, even though they had a customer who had been waiting over an hour already. They finally finished the job at 10:30 a.m. What should have taken 1/2 hour, ended up taking 2-1/2 hours. Sheesh. What has happened to customer service?
After the axles were greased, Bob took the 5er in to be inspected so we could get Texas plates on the 5th wheel. That went pretty smoothly. Then he drove the 5th wheel several miles on I-410 to get the tires moving after being in one site from May to December. Have to get that rubber moving from time to time!
Once Bob got the 5er situated in our new site, he took the inspection and insurance papers to the County Tax Assessor to get our new Texas 5th wheel license plates. All our vehicles are now road legal in Texas.
The cats survived being driven around in the 5er and are now settled happily into our new site. Several pigeons enjoy scratching around the leaves outside our windows, so the kitties "hunt" from their window perch. You can see they are quite content after an afternoon of hunting.
Bowie loves the footrest out. It's right over the heat vent!

For dinner on Friday night, we went to Green Vegetarian Cuisine. I had 1/2 grilled cheese sandwich and a bowl of potato lentil soup. It was yummy and helped me fight off the beginning of a cold, plus I've been drinking Airborne, lots of tea, and water. We watched a re-run of Shark Tank and Bob watched Spurs basketball.
