Tuesday morning we headed to Carson City to pick up the generator we had put into the shop before we left. After 13 years of use it needed a tune up and new rope and handle. For $87.00 we've got a "new" Honda generator. Ken was happy with the price and they didn't charge us for the rope and handle. Nice guys and good service!
From there it was time to head for Walmart for groceries and the RV Antifreeze Ken needed to winterize the trailer. It was nearing 1230 so we headed for our fave Chinese restaurant there. The best hot and sour soup ever! I ate my veggie sand some chicken and the rest came home so Ken had it for dinner later that evening.
While in Walmart our neighbor Karen texted and wanted to get together for Happy Hour. Sounds good to us! Once we were home, groceries put away we headed over. Even though it was really chilly outside, we had a huge bonfire and enjoyed catching up on everything that had gone on in the last couple of weeks. After a couple of hours we haded home.
Wednesday morning dawned clear and cold! It was about 15 degrees upon waking..brrr. After breakfast and a little cleaning it was tax day!! I've set the day aside to get it done for Adam and Bryan and Cheryl. After hearing some horror stories, including one of our son's I was scared for them! These new tax laws certainly cater to the welfare and poorer people, but not to the normal working class! Long story short they don't have to pay as they've certainly paid enough to the federal government so that's a better ending than Eric and family!
While I was at the computer for hours, Ken came in and said he had an idea. Obviously I was working through lunch so he said "Let's pretend we're at CVI and i'll bar b q burgers for linner" So sweet and it sounded perfect. I didn't finish until almost 1500 or so. He got my wine, put it into a 1/2 carafe and served me. :) It was a special treat! He bar b qued the most delicious burger. I made some low carb chips for me, with a little guacomole and he finished the homemade potato salad from the other day. We had a nice afternoon pretending to be at CVI. :) Life is good!

By the way, he did get the gray water to drain and the trailer is winterized once again!
Thursday morning, we caught up on our reading of blogs, had our coffee and now we're getting ready to head for Carson City once again. The Tundra has its 70,000 mile service today. I'll take the Patriot and we'll do some running around. They usually get to it quickly, but the one time we waited it took hours. So we don't do that anymore!
|Ken's brother Don and wife Dana are into the egg selling market|
in their little town of Cornersville, TN. They just sold 6 dozen to
the local RV park. We are very proud of them and their Bar-K Farm!
|No, this isn't Nevada it's Fort Huachuca, Arizona where our|
niece and family are stationed!

Have a wonderful day everyone!
