We drove over to Houston on Friday to spend time with Len's daughter and her family. WHEW! The weather. It was 85 and very humid. Yesterday was much cooler, thankfully.
We've parked our rig about an hours drive from here on the opposite side of town nearer to Katy, TX at our friends Olga and Lola Halbert. They are fellow NOMADS whom we've worked with twice. They invited us to park there whenever we are in the area which we did last June also. They set us up with 50 amp and water. They are away at a Good Sams rally so we probably will not see them this them this trip. A disappointment. I took a picture of where we are parked but OOPS forget to bring the camera connection with me.
On Saturday we drove the 160+ miles each way back to Sulphur LA to attend the funeral of one of Len's cousins. When we got back to Houston, Len helped D'Juana and Joe, who have gutted one of their bathrooms and are in the process of completely redoing it. I contributed by ordering delivery of Chinese food for dinner. And staying out of their way.
Today Len will assist some more. I will do as little as possible.
Tomorrow we will drive back to our rig to check on Lucky and spend the night to return here on Tuesday night.
The computer in the truck tells us it is time for an oil change so looks like we will have to find a place to have that done tomorrow. Also, yesterday we heard a cracking sound and we now have a foot long crack on the windshield. Nothing hit it that we noticed. It just cracked as we were driving down I10. Should have expected it. Last month for the first in a long time we were under budget.
We need to be in Austin TX on Saturday to start a NOMADS project next Monday. So our plan is to continue our visit here in Houston until Friday night when we will once again return to the rig and get ready to pull out Saturday morning.
