It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Making Progress and A Free Steak.

Our Location today is Amarillo, Texas, U.S.A.

After driving 1369.5 Miles in less then 78 Hours it was like we were Zapped of our remaining strength. Enjoying a warm leisurely shower was like a treat but it wasn’t enough to help us fall into a deep sleep. We both kept waking on and off throughout the night. Maybe it was because we didn’t have the sounds of idling engines to lull us to a higher level of unconsciousness. 
Beautiful Texas Sunrise.
When we finally got up this morning I realized that we had risen before the Sun and there was nobody outside waking around the park That’s when it dawned on me that this was the first Sunday of November and we were no longer using Daylight Saving Time. The time had shifted back along with the Longer Daylight Hours. Gone are the Warm Temperatures from 15+ Hours of Daylight and we are back to the 10+ Hour Days with High Winds and Colder Temperatures

After finishing the last of the Rhubarb that Kathy made last Tuesday on Toast for Breakfast we spent time catching up on other RV Blogs. It is sad to see the numbers of people writing has dropped considerably.

Kathy managed to get some of her Data Entries put into our Expenditure Spreadsheet while I took over the table to fill our Pill Doucettes. As most of our readers know Canadians are not allowed to bring our medication across the International Border in anything but their original containers though we did cheat a couple days worth. Another thing most of our readers know is that I can set up to Forty-Five Days worth of medication so the chore does not always happen on a Saturday Evening

I finished packing away all our supplies by 12:30 which allowed Kathy the chance to start plating our Lunches. It was nearly like a small feast a Chicken Thigh and Leg along with Macaroni Salad for a side.

After lunch while Kathy did the dishes I went outside to work on the truck. On Older Vehicles all the Fuses and Relays were easy to get at inside the Vehicle itself. Using the Owner’s Manual I located the Fuses and Relays that control the Trailer Lights under the Hood. Then part of the Cruise Control Mechanism had to be removed before the cover could be released from the Panel Box. Once the proper Fuse was located it took a Screwdriver to pry it out of its spot. Nothing is simple, so that you will have to go back to the Dealerships to get it fixed. “Not!”

The timers are for anyone wishing to try for a "Free Meal."
Having located an Auto Zone not far away Kathy and I drove over to pick up the replacement parts. While Ivan helped me with the Fuses and Relays that I needed Kathy found a new Steering Wheel Cover.

We then drove over to the local Walmart where we planned to get our groceries. Every store is laid out differently and because Kathy forgot her Shopping List at Home she only got what she could remember. Once we were back Home the Forgotten List showed Kathy had only missed three things. 
Lots of Trophies along the Balcony
We then headed for the Big Texan Steakhouse down the road. They offer free Limousine Service from the RV Park but with our plans to finish our shopping afterwards we took the truck.

When we walked in all the Booths were already taken so we had the end of a table to ourselves. We were very satisfied with our stop here in April but this time someone grilling our Steaks didn’t know what Well Done meant. We were satisfied with their 8 Ounce Sirloin but some people just want more. If you can eat a Salad, Three Dinner Rolls, a Baked Potato and a 72 Ounce Steak in less then an Hour it is “Yours for Free”. There were two men at the Table of Honor on the Stage trying to eat their way to a Free Meal

We took I-40 across town and were at Walmart in less then Five Minutes. It took us Ten Minutes to finish our shopping.

After we get our chores done tomorrow we’ll see what else we can do. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

You permanently had chocolate around your mouth until sixth grade.


  1. Glad to see you moving along. Did any of the guys get a free steak?

  2. We enjoyed the couple of days we spent at that same RV park and checking out the Big Texan. Enjoy the time and hope you are relaxing.

  3. I have always enjoyed going to the Big Texan. The two times I have been there, no one has ever been taking the challenge. Will have to drop by the next time through. Safe travels.

  4. I love that place! It would take me five days to eat that much steak!!

  5. Glad you guys made it with only the trailer lights acting up.

  6. We were at the Big Texan and watched the husband of a woman sitting at our table eat the whole thing. She says he does thing kind of thing regular. I aked how he recovered from such a feat and she says he goes straight to bed for 24 hours:)
