It has been a while since I caught you up with the Traill doings. Sorry about that. It has been a very busy week. Most of the week was used up just sorting stuff for the Running Away From Home Sale. There has been nothing amusing, dramatic or even interesting to share. We did make a trip to Houston on Friday to see the Pirates beat the Philly's.
Our 5-year old grandson Bryce is a Pirate in Pearland, TX Tee-Ball. It was an exciting game with the Pirates willing 22 to 11. Bryce is about a foot shorter than the rest of the team but what he lacks in stature he more than makes up for in enthusiasm. He struts his stuff everytime he gets up to bat and while the ball rarely goes past the pitcher, he does get to first base. It is intense sports action for the discerning fan.
Bryce's 5th birthday party was on Saturday and we bowled up a storm. We really had a good time and the kids scored higher than we did. We both had bumpers up so it was kind of embarrassing. That will be something we will miss while on the road. Trips home to see the young'uns will have to be worked in there somewhere.
We stopped at PPL Motorhomes in Houston for some things we had been looking for to finish out the RV purchases. That place is really a gold mine of "stuff." We found the bicycle bumper mount racks we had been looking for on sale, which is always good. One of the things we were told was a must is a Tote-Along. We want to stay in State and Federal parks most of the time and they usually do not have sewer connections. I am not an expert on waste materials but my DH seems to know quite a bit about it. Anyway, we got a good deal on a 4-wheel 32 gal. tote that hooks on the trailer hitch ball of the truck to take to the dump station. Finish that off with a sturdy, comfortable folding chair for Tom and it finished up our shopping list. If you are passing through Houston and need anything RV, check out PPL. They have everything there.
Guess that is about all for today. See I told you it was not even interesting. Thanks for hanging in there though. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
