Burgers & Toilet Lids

Because we missed our movie of the week last week, we decided to take in two movies this week.  On Thursday we tried a new theater, Santikos Rialto, which is closer to us and cheaper too.  We saw Blade Runner 2049 and both enjoyed it.  It was a bit hard to follow at times and … Continue reading »

Got a Gate…

We got a call from Shawn at 7:20 Monday morning letting us know that he need us on a day gate immediately.  It just so happens that the gate was one that we worked January for a couple of weeks (out of our coach) and then in March Michael worked there a couple of times … Continue reading »

A Day Gate Is Better Than No Gate

*Some of you may have gotten a ‘draft’ version of this post a few days ago…sorry about that…this is the REAL/FULL version. Tuesday morning we were up bright and early…ok….so maybe not bright since it was 4:45 am and the sun doesn’t come until after 7:00 am! We followed Shawn to the location of the … Continue reading »

Too Good To Be True…

We had a nice, quiet weekend again….especially since we ‘closed’ at 7:00 pm.  Once 7 o’clock comes round Michael heads outside to lock the gate while I pull all the shades in the coach and unplug the bell and then we’re  in our own little world. We’ve heard a few trucks come and go ‘after … Continue reading »

Storms, Storms, Rain and Sunshine!

Thursday 4/16 We had a pretty good storm blow through in the afternoon but it only lasted about 10 minutes.  The last crack of lightning knocked out our power.  I couldn’t figure out how to open the power box to flip the breaker back on but shortly after the guys in the park with us … Continue reading »

Guess Who’s Expecting??

Michael had 3 VA appointments in San Antonio this afternoon.  The first was at 1:30 and it’s about an hour and a half drive from her to the northwest side of the city where the clinics are all located. The first appointment was just a blood pressure check and didn’t take long at all.  The … Continue reading »

That’s A Wrap!

Tuesday 11/18 Today we had a new company man come in as the old one went on days off.  He thought that if everything went according to plan he’d be releasing us tomorrow.  He was only here an hour or so to check on the flowback crew and then left again. You might remember that … Continue reading »

A Little Local Flavor And Some Munzees

We relaxed the morning away and had plans to do nothing today.  However, Michael said that we needed ice (dang icemaker’s on the fritz again!) so we decided we might as well cap the 11 Munzee‘s here in town. Canton isn’t big so capping the Munzees around town went pretty quick…a stop at Walmart (all … Continue reading »

Another One Bites The Dust!

In the middle of the night a heard a ‘SNAP’ and new that we’d caught mouse number 2.  Sure enough when we got up the trap that Michael placed close to where we’d caught one yesterday morning contained a dead rodent.  Michael disposed of the little beast and now we’re down to 2 snappy traps. … Continue reading »

Impromptu Potluck & Church Of The Week

Today we continued with our ‘attend a new church every weekend’ quest.  Today we chose to attend mass at St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Mission.  We had a full house (standing room only for some) due to a bunch of teens that attended a ‘Relationship & Sexuality’ Retreat.  At the end of mass the kids … Continue reading »
