2/15/13 Friday at Marathon, TX (Marathon Motel and RV Park-weekly rate)
Woke at 4 am to wind pushing our rig from all directions. At least this time I’m not as worried about awnings, wheel covers and falling over. John had tied on the wheel covers and the RV didn’t suffer lasting problems with the bigger gusts in Deming. Still, it’s hard to sleep. But we gave it our best, sleeping in until 8 or so. French toast for breakfast, laundry started, dishes cleaned, then we settled in to watch our tape of Thursday’s basketball game between Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s. They are Gonzaga’s major rival in that conference, so it’s always a nail biter. John knew the score, so I let him tell me. We won 77-60. SO glad I knew. I could enjoy the game without all that fear. Really good game. St. Mary’s pulled ahead at the half, but we kept up our pressure and stayed ahead for the majority of the game.
The rest of the day I spent working on the blog for the last 3 very busy days. John played with numbers on the computer and watched old TV shows. All day, until supper.
Even after supper I worked on the Valentine’s Day blog, then washed dishes and enjoyed a warm shower. Good day to catch our breath.
