3/24/15 Tuesday in McQueeney, TX (Sharon’s driveway)
The jacks came up in good time today. Our DASH I-Pod is working just fine too, probably because we brought the bedroom radio up front :). On our way by 9:40. Nice smooth ride on I-10. Who says freeways aren’t scenic?
Spring in Texas sure does bring lovely carpets of color (wild flowers) along the freeway. I THINK they’re blue bonnets.
It got to 80 degrees here, so by the time we’d settled in around noon, we needed A/C. Well, it worked for awhile, but when we tried to shift things to the living room A/C, it just would not get going. We’re plugged into Sharon’s garage outlet – 20 amps. At one point John pulled the cord out of that outlet and immediately our generator started working. It’d been set on auto. That means there just wasn’t enough power for even one A/C to get started. So we left the A/C and generator on for 2 hours, getting relief from the heat.
Neither of us had slept well last night (John is struggling with allergies to the major oak pollen out now). So I took a nap while John watched TV. Sharon had to work until after 5, so we all got together at a very nice Mexican restaurant in Seguin, El Ranchito. Great food, great conversation. Then John and I stopped at the nearby HEB for groceries, later meeting up with Sharon and Bob at their new home. It’s only 2 blocks from their old one, where we’re parked! It’s beautiful, only 10 years old.
Bedtime arrived too soon, so we took our leave.
Since we’ll be visiting with John’s sister, Sharon, most of our time here, I may take a blog break. We’ll be here for a week.
