Dec 14, 2019 - December 8-14, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas

December 8-14, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas December 8 – I got the coach cleaned today. That took most of the day since I’d work for 15 minutes or so and then sit down and read. December 9 – I decorated today. I discovered that I hadn’t gotten all the bins with Christmas decorations. I’m missing some pillows and a couple of throws. I ran over to the storage unit and got the rest of the decorations and then took all the empty bins back. I had to get the car cleaned out since I’m driving tomorrow for the ladies lunch. It was a nice day, and I...

Dec 7, 2019 - December 1-7, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas

December 1-7, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas December 1 – It was a quiet day today. It was cloudy most of the day and too cool to have the windows open. December 2 – After exercise this morning, I came back to the coach and spent the rest of the day reading. It was a nice day but a little too cool to have the windows open. I played bingo tonight and won the final game which is blackout. It has the largest jackpot. I won $8. December 3 – I called the repair folks to see when they might come to fix the dryer. They don’t have the part yet. They...

Nov 30, 2019 - November 24-30, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas

November 24-30, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas November 24 – It was a nice day today, and I had the windows open. I spent the day reading a very interesting book. It is The Santa Claus man; the rise and fall of a jazz age con man and the invention of Christmas in New York by Alex Palmer. It was published in 2016. I highly recommend it. It was certainly a side of a charity which was eye opening. Unfortunately, I think there are still a lot of charities that are as big a con on the one documented in this book. November 25 – After exercise this...

Nov 23, 2019 - November 17-23, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas

November 17-23, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas November 17 – It was another beautiful day. I ran to the grocery store here in Aransas to pick up a couple of things. When I got home, I opened all the windows. It clouded over late this afternoon, and I had to close the windows, but the coach got aired out before then. I worked crossword puzzles today. Somehow, I just wasn’t in the mood to read. November 18 – I finally got around to pulling the information on the washer/dryer out so I could call the repair folks. The dryer had stopped heating last...

November 10-16, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas November 10 – It was a nice day today. I was up and out to the grocery store by 7. I got my shopping done at both HEB and Sprouts and was home before 10. I put the frozen stuff away before taking off for the Market Days at the local convention center. I picked up a Christmas present for next year, bought a couple of bottles of wine and some cooking spices. I had lunch at McDonalds before heading home. Margaret came over to let me know that we can’t exercise in the activity hall in the morning since...

November 5-9, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas November 5 – I slept in today. After I finally got up, I put some of the books which had gotten wet from the leak in the bay out in the sun to begin drying out. I spent most of the day catching up on email and looking for GAdventures trips in Japan that would work for us. It was really nice so I had all the windows open. November 6 – I walked around the park this morning. Afterwards, Margaret and I did our exercise in the activity center. Velda forgot about it until it was almost over. The rest of...

Nov 4, 2019 - November 4, 2019 – Aransas Pass to Livingston to Aransas Pass, Texas

November 4, 2019 – Aransas Pass to Livingston to Aransas Pass, Texas I was on the road before 6:30. I stopped at Buckee’s which is a travel center which is well known in Texas. Not only do they generally have the cheapest gas, but they have a take-out restaurant, and lots and lots and lots of tchotchkes. I filled up the car, got some breakfast and wandered around the store for a few minutes. I sailed through Houston on the way up, but it was a different story coming home. There had been 2 bad accidents about 2 miles apart. It took me an...

Nov 3, 2019 - November 3, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas

November 3, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas Today was laundry day and emptying the black water tank. I also worked on getting my maps dried out. I had a leak in the bay where I had them and the books so they all got wet. I’ve got most of them dried out, and I only have to replace 4 of them. I’m heading to Livingston tomorrow to talk to the county clerk to see if there is some way that I can vote before the cruise next year. It will be a long day as it is about a 4 hour drive up there. So, I’m going to make an early night of it. jnd

Nov 2, 2019 - November 2, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas

November 2, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas The sun was out today, but the wind was blowing so it felt a little cool. Margaret came over this morning to talk about when we would start the exercise sessions. She will check with Velda who is the only other one here so far. Then, we’ll see when we start. One of the ones who exercised with us last year has a bad back which they were supposed to do surgery on this past summer. They didn’t because they told her that it wouldn’t do any good. So, she has to give up exercising because she doesn’t want to...

Nov 1, 2019 - November 1, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas

November 1, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas The sun was out today, and it warmed up into the low 70s. I went to Lowes to pick up a couple of things. I stopped at the storage unit and picked up my electric heater. I can use the heat pump, but the fan makes a lot of noise so I prefer the heater since it warms the coach just as well and doesn’t make a lot of noise. I stopped at Sonic for a couple of corn dogs before going to the grocery store to pick up a couple of things. Today I saw a couple of rigs come in, but I was gone during the time when...

Oct 30, 2019 - October 30, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas

October 30, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas I managed to pull a muscle in my back yesterday so I haven’t done much today. The weather has been overcast and threatening rain. The forecast was for partly cloudy and a high in the low mid- to high-70s. It finally made it to 67, but that was it. And, the temperature began to fall almost immediately. After 5, it sprinkled a little bit, but at 6:02 (I happened to be working on the computer and looked at the time), a gust of wind rocked the coach, and it poured rain. There were a couple of people out...

Oct 29, 2019 - October 29, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas

October 29, 2019 – Aransas Pass, Texas I have spent a pretty lazy day today. I got the water hooked up and some things unloaded from the trunk of the car. I got the bay opened which had a leak and got the books out. Some of the books will be salvageable but others will just have to be tossed. I’m going to put them out in the sun and see which ones will I will be able to keep. It rained during the night last night and a little early this morning. It was overcast until about noon when it finally cleared up, and the sun came out. I’m so glad...
