A Windy Thursday

It was a very windy day...per Weatherbug, we had gusts up to 41 m.p.h.  Thankfully we also had mild temperatures.  High of 78 and low of 62.

Had errands to run, so I fired up dad's old car and headed to town.  I have mentioned many times before that I only go to Walmart on Thursday.  In my personal experience it is the perfect day because people have not been paid yet and are waiting for Friday and the weekend to hit the store.

Shoeless Joe,  if you are reading this and think that 4:00 a.m. is good any day of the week to visit said store...you are probably right...but that was when I lived in Houston and could still see well at night.  I now limit my visits to daylight hours :)

My rain catchment system for Dummies yield 4.5 gallons of murky water.




Gasoline prices have been holding steady this week.  Of course,  if you buy a store cash card at HEB, Stripes or Walmart they will knock .12 cents off the price per gallon...I don't play those games...I like one price whether I choose cash, credit, or any other form of payment!



Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

  1. $3.73 is not a bad price for diesel. It all cost a fortune when you have a 100 gallon fuel tank and only get 6 miles per gallon. Will head down to Terlingua tomorrow. That is if I can make reservations somewhere. I will try BJ's RV park first cause it is close to Terlingua and I have been there before.

  2. $ am is only good if your parked in the lot in your RV, to get up at 4 am to drive to Walmart is not right.

    1. I suffer from insomnia...at 4:00 a.m. I am usually up since I have not gone to bed yet.

  3. MsB, it hasn't been real windy here, but with the cooler temps what wind there has been has made it a little uncomfortable. I think the high yesterday was only in the low 70s and is supposed to be about 90 today. Right now its 62 degrees, sunny, no wind and beautiful.
