It's 2:30am.

I can't sleep.

Actually, I'm a bit nervous.


And no.

That is NOT me buzzing.

There is a bee in my motorhome....

And well...YIKES!

I be allergic to bees.

I just heard gunshots.

Maybe someone out there also has a bee in their house?

Or more likely, a Coyote in their pasture.

Oh please bee, leave!


Now the cattle are mooing.

At least the donkeys are being quiet tonight.

They bay a lot at night.

There are two catty corner across the street to protect the chickens and ducks from the coyotes....or maybe bees?

Maybe I need a donkey in my RV???

Oh crap!


I think it's stalking me now. off bee!


More silence...

Maybe it's just a fly...

Nite all.

The cows are singing again. And this darn bee fly is buzzing again.....

Yea, so this is what you get to see while driving in Houston & sitting at a traffic light. 

Aren't you glad I was in the right spot at the right time?

There's even a phone number for those that wish to apply!

Good luck!!

What's for dinner?

Shish ka bobs! And they were good! 

I marinated some boneless chicken breasts in regular old italian dressing today.

Along with button mushrooms, onion slices & bell pepper. 

My friends got a new grill. What a fiasco that was! 

But we scored a good deal! 

I went around with her yesterday looking at grills. We went to our close WalMart first. I thought they'd be marking them down by now to clear them out for other seasonal items. 

But not many places are doing that yet. 

So we looked, took pics of the grills & price tags. 

Went to WalMart, Home Depot & Lowes. 

WalMart came closest to what we were looking for pricewise & what type we wanted.

But we were in another town (towns here are all clustered together anyhow), so went to the Walmart there. They had grills on sale! Cool. One that was already assembled had a little paint chipped area that showed just a little bit of rust. So we talked to the manager of the lawn & garden department. She gave us a 10% discount. Cool! 

The grill was on sale for $158, regular price was $198. The first WM had theirs still at $198. Then we went inside to get a cover & noticed how many boxes they still had of the grill on sale. BUT, the boxes were marked $147. Hmmmm....Texas law has it that items must be sold at the price they are marked & well, they were marked at $147 from a previous sale that they didn't change back! So, they sold us the grill for $147, then the 10% discount. So that covered the price of the cover, so it was like getting the cover for free. Cool Beans! 

Last night, their friend, Aaron cooked pork ribs. 

Tonight, I cooked chicken shish ka bobs. 

Tomorrow night, no cooking -- I get a break! Even better! We have leftovers anyhow. 

Hope all is well with everyone!

How can an ice cube save you from getting sick?

Yes, that's my title & I'm sticking to it! ;-)

So now you are wondering what in the heck am I squawking about?

Well ice cubes & your RV fridge or even home fridge for that matter!

How would you know if your freezer defrosted, then refroze your food again?

Well, an ice cube can tell you that. 

Simply put an ice cube in a container that would show the effects of it if it were to melt. 

If the container has a puddle or a sheet of melted & refrozen water instead of an ice cube, then your food is probably no longer safe to eat. 

This sure can save you from any food poisoning! 

I'd like to take credit for thinking of this on my own....but I saw it on the internet. 

So it MUST be true!!

Hope all is well with everyone. 

Not much has been happening in my life. 

But I got a new toy that I'll blog about soon. 

Not a new RV or expensive toy, just one that makes my life just a little bit easier!
