As always, first the chronology:

10/02/19 – Wednesday – Up a little early, usual morning routine and out to pick up Gary to go get a TV at Walmart for him. Brought Gary and the TV back to the house and carried the TV upstairs in the barn. Home and did some more packing for next week. Lunch, had a nap and got my new WiFi shields around 3PM. Took them downstairs and started working with them. Got all three configured and was able to talk to them. Kathy made me some dinner then was off to Mike and Julie’s to help Dee babysit the grand kids. Knocked off a little before 8PM. Up to bed, Big Bang, some reading and sleep.

10/03/19 – Thursday – Up a little early again, usual morning routine. Kathy got a call that Shelby had issues at school so she headed up to get her. I took the truck over to Bachmann’s Chevrolet for a recall and get the oil changed. Kathy came and picked me up and we went shopping at Best Buy then an early lunch at Big Boy. Kathy dropped me off at Bachmann’s and went for more shopping. I got the truck back and stopped at the Dollar store for some things, then to the auto parts store for a cover for my hitch receiver. Home and worked on my Arduino project. Chatted with the guys on 2 meters. Kathy went to Bell Choir practice and picked up Subway for a late dinner on her way home. I shut things off downstairs and did some chores. Bed, TV and sleep.

10/04/19 – Friday – Up at usual time and usual morning routine. Out to get the truck fueled up for tomorrow. Inside and finished packing. Had a light lunch. Did some computer research. Cleaned up and took Bella to our friend Dee’s house. She is going to keep her while we are gone rather than put her in a kennel. Had dinner at Bob Evans. Stopped for donuts at Krispy Kreme for dessert. Home, ate dessert, bed, computer updates, TV and sleep.

10/05/19 – Saturday – Up a little early and usual morning routine. Departed the house at 8:45AM to head to Texas. The plan was to stop in Little Rock, AR for the evening. We arrived in Little Rock about 4:15PM local time which was 5:15 Eastern time. We drove a total of 521.1 miles. Made two potty stops and a stop at Wendy’s for lunch. Went to the local restaurant in the Holiday Inn for dinner. Did some computer work, the blog, Big Bang and sleep.


Now the particulars:

I can’t believe I have had the wrong date for the last month and no one bothered to tell me.  I am disappointed.

Anyway, welcome to October the 10th month.

Kathy got home last Saturday from her trip.  Spent a lot of time this week cleaning things up from that and getting things ready for our trip to Texas next week.  I am anxious to spend time with an old friend Lynn.  Kathy has 3 bucket list items.  She has never seen the Mississippi river or been west of the Mississippi.   Also, she has never seen the Alamo so we will try to see that while in Texas.

Haven’t heard anything one way or the other about Todd.  Seems the tests did not definitely determine a thing.  Needless to say he is very disappointed and needs to take a break from all the probing.

Spent some time changing eye insurance.  We had VSP but we went to Lens Crafters for our vision needs.  But Lens Crafters is out of network and VSP keeps limiting their coverage for out of network providers.  So I did some shopping and determined that Eyemed was less in premiums and Lens Crafters was in network to them.  Hope it’s worth all the hoops I had to jump through to accomplish that.

Had a recall on the truck so I took it to the dealer for the recall and got an oil change and tire rotation in preparation for the trip.

Got the new WiFi shield for my Arduino project.  Works like a champ.  I’ll get time to work on that after I get back from Texas.

OK, that’s it for this week.  As always, I hope this finds everyone in good health and I wish you all a good week to come.
