Oh, wait, we ARE Texans! Just renewed our car registrations for the first time.
Happy birthday to my sister in law, Gina. I hope your birthday was a good one yesterday.
Our temperature has taken a huge drop, 30 degrees to be precise. 96 on Friday, 66 today. We were able to open all the windows on the 5er and let in fresh air. Had to close them once because of a passing rain shower. Then I opened them again until it got too chilly. Nice to refresh the air inside Rigamarole after months of closed windows due to air conditioner use to mitigate the heat and humidity.
Today, Bob ran ten miles and said he felt great, actually ran the whole route (no walking). He worked, and then took his truck in to an auto body shop to have them look at a tweaked driver-side door. When we had heavy rain the other day, water came inside the cab. Not to mention, there is really bad road noise without a tight door seal. We certainly want that fixed before our trip!
Then, he noticed that his truck was leaking fluid underneath. Yesterday he had the oil and fuel filters changed. He took his truck back to Goodyear. They said one of the seals on the fuel filter was bad. They have to order a kit and are charging him another $172. That sucks because he had no issues with fuel filter seals leaking before he took it in. We don't understand why they're not paying for it since it happened after we took it there.
Last night we went to Random Beer Garden and Event Center to chill out after the work week. And chill we did. Thankfully I had my sweater with me. And we wore our cowboy boots which protected our feet from the mud, horse d'oeuvres (to be polite) and the rocky, clay-like parking lot. It rained some, was breezy and we had a short lightning show. We ate Z's Wood-Fired Pizza from one of the food trucks and drank Redd's Apple Ale...good combination. The musical duo who played were very good. I especially thought she sang an Adele song to a T.
I ordered a few things before our trip. My old Nike Pegasus walking shoes are past their prime so I ordered a new pair online. Today they arrived. I took photos while they're nice and clean. Still waiting for two more packages.
|New Nike Pegasus 29+ shoes - very comfortable.|
|Nike Pegasus light-weight shoes with Thorlo socks.|
All for now. Travel Bug out.
