I like change, otherwise I get bored and feel stagnated. Change, or the idea of change, is unsettling for Kat. We have been experiencing change good, and bad.
It's unlikely we'll ever see a consumer vehicle of this size again.
We never planned to sell our 7.3 liter Powerstroke (diesel) Excursion. It's known to be one of the best tow vehicles ever made, and that's what we used it for. It also saw use if we ever needed to seat extra people when we had guests and didn't want to use two cars. We were pleasantly surprised to find the Excursion had held its value. It was worth nearly the same as we paid for it eight years ago. I listed it for sale, and then the transmission started to slip. Even with the failure of the trans, we still managed to find a new owner. He flew in from Missouri and limped the truck all the way home.
The new yard area:
Hard to imagine we couldn't even walk across this area before.
The first completed area has been Xeriscaped.
Working my way around the perimeter before we attack the center area.
Marvin is no longer with us. Wildlife is returning. Raccoon have been getting into the koi pond, skunk have been up next to the house digging in Kat's chive garden. Kay-so is still busy killing mice. But we sort of like the Fox.
We have a family of Foxes that I see almost daily. Kay-so the cat is comfortable with them as well. I don't believe she is in danger. She's twice the size of that fox. The fox often stops to look at me through the kitchen window.
We drove down to Wimberley for lunch at the Leaning Pear and then a quick dip in the river at our place down there.
Weekly Family HH report: St Philip
St Philip has been a regular stop for us but we'd never been able to make it for Happy Hour. The Labor Day Holiday enabled us to make it for their Monday HH 3 till close!
We found eight items on the $4HH menu. There were six of us. Kat loves to sample an entire menu when she can, so we did. The waitress was a little shocked when I told her "one of everything" and pointed to the HH menu. She was certain I was joking. It turned out to be plenty of food and we got to sample it all. Everything was delicious and I'd not be ashamed to order "one of everything" again!
Texas craft beers are also $4 a pint during HH.
