Atascosa RV Park - Pleasanton, TX - Dec 19, date

Atascosa RV Park - Pleasanton, TX - Friday, December 19, 2014
Morning 52 Degrees, wind N 10, humidity 95%, cloudy with rain showers. We got the rain last night starting about nine as we lost satellite signal for a few minutes. Then again in the morning for three tenths of an inch, a lot for here.



Afternoon 65 Degrees, wind N 10 & gusting to 20 mph, humidity 41%, partly sunny.
This afternoon Bonnie and I took a ride around the west side of San Antonio for lunch and some shopping. To me there is more traffic congestion around commuter time than on the east side where we seem to travel more.

The delivery of our refrigerator to Texas RV Supply, San Antonio, Texas is for December 29. I contacted them today to discuss the installation into Buster so Buster will arrive there the same day for the removal of the Norcold 1200. They then have to reset the floor that the refrigerator sits on and lower the storage draws that are under the Norcold.
 
Today (December 20) is our middle daughter Christine’s birthday, Happy Birthday Christine.

Atascosa RV Park - Pleasanton, TX - Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Last year we were “gate guarding” thru the holiday’s and did not leave until January first. It is another change as we wait for the delivery of our new residential refrigerator here in an RV park.

Afternoon 61 Degrees, wind N 5 , humidity 77%, cloudy.

Atascosa RV Park - Pleasanton, TX - Dec 16 draws



                                                          

Atascosa RV Park - Pleasanton, TX - Tuesday, December 16, 2014
Morning 49 Degrees, wind NNE 8, humidity 60%, partly sunny.
Afternoon 63 Degrees, wind ENE 4, humidity 33%, mostly cloudy.

We are looking at probably not working again until after our refrigerator change in January.  Bonnie and I are trying to use our food stock down so that we have room to redistribute what we store under the refrigerator now to other locations. We are going to lose the two draws (at least part of) we currently store canned goods, soups and other canned items there.
The Samsung residential refrigerator is taller by a about two and a half inches. Texas RV Supply, San Antonio, will lower the floor of the refrigerator compartment, that is the only change of the compartment that is needed

 Buster will probably have the draws reduced in height resulting in us laying down cans in the reworked draw, opposed to them standing upright in the draw now. The draw face will be removed and the draw will be cut down then the draw face cut down and reinstalled.

 I have been the one to ensure that we had canned goods available so as not needing the running to the store when a casserole needs a can of cream of mushroom soup or you want a chicken noodle soup for lunch some day. Surprisingly some things we keep om hand are not on the store shelf’s, read store ransacked or there is a special price, and I pick up more than one for stock. Buster has the weight carrying capacity for these items as there is no weight problem. I did change the bins in the basement where we store canned goods from two large deep to four shallow that are only one can deep, easier to find and I was keeping too much in Buster.

Atascosa RV Park - Pleasanton, TX - Monday, December 15, 2014
Morning 60 Degrees, wind 6 SE, humidity 97%, mostly cloudy with lighter fog.
Computer problems, at first I was only using the mouse - and everything was ok. But when I started to use the key board different keys gave unusual response, p nothing, space bar there was a jump , e was five letters fgebt. I did not test every key but it was not good. At first I was thinking new computer and learning windows eight. Bonnie and I went to Office Max then Best Buy, (right next door to each other in southeast 
San Antonio) looking at computers that I do not want to buy at this time. When we called the guy over to ask questions in Best Buy he asked our problem and I explained it to him. His advise was a USB Keyboard, $ 11.36 out the door. Back at buster I plugged it into the USB hub and waited a few minutes to download the drivers to operate and you can see I am able to type. A little awkward with the extra keyboard but we are still using windows seven, thank goodness. 


Afternoon 79 Degrees, wind 7 NNW Variable, humidity 22%, mostly sunny

Atascosa RV Park - Pleasanton, TX - Dec 13 river walk

After a slow morning Bonnie and I went into San Antonio, River Walk just a nice afternoon for a walk. I parked Tan Jan in a parking garage off East Commerce Street. Exited the garage and tried to get our bearings as the river walk is below street level and the signs are there only small in size.

Afternoon 74 Degrees, wind 6 ESE, humidity 66%, mostly sunny.
Mostly tourist shops and restaurants there and the river boats ride. Bonnie and I just opted to patronize a restaurant for a late lunch.

We had another rain last night after eight o’clock and now partly sunny morning (in the east) still a cloudy sky in the west.

I took a drive to the gate company checking on available gates, very slow now with the price of oil down one-third companies are cutting back on work projected for completing wells. Also it is the time of the year the budget is low and planning next years budget is under way.
Afternoon 72 Degrees, wind Variable, humidity 41%, partly sunny latter in the afternoon.

Atascosa RV Park - Pleasanton, TX - Tuesday, December 9, 2014
Morning 44 Degrees, wind 1 N mph & gusting to 6, humidity 95%, partly sunny. We are on the waiting list to get a gate. I guess that there are fewer gates available and other snow birds have arrived in the area looking for gate jobs. 
Afternoon 70 Degrees, wind N 2 mph, humidity 65%, partly sunny. I am going to start looking for other companies that gate guard trying to get a gate with them. 

We went into San Antonio for some shopping and the gasoline purchased was $ 2.259 did not need much but at that price I could not pass by without filling up the tank in Tan Jan.

Morning 52 Degrees, wind 1 variable , humidity 75%, mostly cloudy
Afternoon 70 Degrees, wind Variable, humidity 67%, mostly cloudy.

It is trying to rain little drops on the windshield this afternoon. Sending more inquires about gate jobs today but things are slow with the oil price per barrel down so much in the past six weeks the oil companies are slowing their new work.
