Rainy Day

It is raining here and the wind is blowing with gusts up to 35 mph, just a miserable day outside, but a perfect day to be inside and work on my to do list.

We went to Beloit, WI last Thursday to visit Robert, Sarah, Mason and Madyson, it was a lot of fun. The kids told us all about their trip to Disney World and showed us their picture albums. We sure enjoyed hearing about their trip. Friday Robert took off work so we were able to spend time with Madyson and him, then in the afternoon went and picked up Mason from kindergarten. I had a ball playing with the kids however I found out quickly I can’t play very long before they have me tuckered out. Of course if I would lose 50 lbs. I might be able to go a bit longer but I don’t have the energy or stamina I use to have. Must be old age.

Saturday we went to Madison, Sarah wanted some items from the beauty supply place. We picked up those items and then went to eat at Longhorn Steakhouse, Sarah and I split the pork chop dinner. I was impressed the chops had a very good flavor and were very tender. After eating we went over to the mall, I wanted to go to the Apple store to get a IPad but they were out. I expected as much but I figure I will keep checking and eventually I will be in the right place at the right time and get one, unless someone comes out with a tablet for the same price that will get my gmail the way I can on my laptop.

A couple of weeks ago I called around to find the best price I could on a set of four Michelin tires for the truck and the local Ford dealer had the best price on them. Then last week I took the truck in for an oil change and was told the transmission, transfer case, differentials and the power steering was not checked at the 30,000 mile check. Since we pull a heavy camper I wanted those items done, so today the truck is getting new tires and the other items serviced also. Sarah and I discussed it and decided we wanted to maintain a preventative maintenance routine on the truck to hopefully prevent as many mishaps on the road as possible.

Here are a couple of pictures from our trip to Beloit;
