Good evening to everyone,
It was a smoker today. Our forecasted temps were 70/102dgrs with 40% humidity. The winds are out of the SE @ 12mphs. There's a little chance of rain moving through the area these next few days but nothing above 24% chance.
The wife and I spent the morning down in Georgetown, TX. Its a small city between Belton and Austin. We checked out the historical town square. Stopped in a couple shops and had lunch at one of the restaurants there in the town square. We took our time driving home as we drove through one of Dell Webs Communities. Down here its call Sun Cities and it is a site to see. Everything is well maintained, Its a Golf Cart driving around city. They have different neighborhoods or cottages like areas. The houses are nice some were duplexes. They have it well laid out with activities center, tennis courts, golf courses, and small shopping center with gas station. Just driving around looking the only thing we didn't like was the houses are too close together for my taste. It reminded me of living on a military installation. But then this being a Retirement Community I guess it doesn't matter. Close quarters is good sometimes.
Made a stop at Stillhouse Lake Cedar Gap park. The water is down and the parking lot and ramp is open. The hydrilla has taken a hold and it looks great coming out of the coves and running down the old river channel bank line. There were a few trailers parked in the parking lot.
Got the Silverado worked on yesterday. I took it in to Good Year to get the Tire Pressure Maintenance Sensors replaced. The tech called me up telling me the both front hubs bearings were needing replaced. The cost of repairs went from $400.00 dollars to $1400.00 dollars. They did a front end alinement and tire rotation beings they had the wheels off. It drives better for sure and that darn flashing tire maintenance ICON isn't flashing on the dash anymore.
Bud; I remember when I was retired the first time everyday seemed like a Saturday at first. Then it changed to me not really caring what day it was cause I didn't have a job. I did what I wanted to during the week and stayed off the water during the weekends. Yep same thing here school is starting up on the 18th of Aug. Back to school sales will be starting up.
We got lots of people starting to school up at school now > Monday for meetings. Football camp & practices starts on Monday as do other sport venues. We still have contractors doing some repairs to the areas damaged during last Winters cold weather ordeal.
We still have ya'll in our daily prayers for the upcoming surgery. Best Wishes my good man.
Top; Tks for checking in and letting us know you're vertical and breathing. Every place I was deployed one of the rules we had was No Messing around with the local pets. Hopefully ya'll wont' have any issues with diseases or someone getting bit.
Rodney; Well buddy that sux that the pump went out. Good luck getting it replaced. Yep the knee is feeling a lot better today. New pictures for sure are a priority on that left knee. Yep back to the ole grind here starting next week. Grown people acting like pigs and wanting you to wait on them hand and foot. Gott to love working for a school district especially a High School.
SHC; Wow no misadventures to share with us for the past couple days
