There were a few workers at the pad today but no sleep overs tonight as the flow back operation completed today. Our street gate couple asked for a chance to have dinner out together, I went to their rig and watched their gate while they went to dinner. No one came to the gate and there was only one exit vehicle. This Is hard work with no one coming or going from the gate. Bonnie was up early today to “man” our gate while I was at the front gate.
NASCAR is in Alabama this week Talladega.

Bonnie was off to bed early in the morning and when she got up I went to town for shopping. We have been having battery problems with the car so my first stop was Auto Zone for a battery. When I had the charger on the battery and it is charged removing the charger I could see the voltage drop and the volts continue on down. There is no problems with the charging as the voltage goes up to fourteen when the engine is running.
Thinking it is a bad cell in the battery that was only two years in service. That battery did not give us a good run as we have had many times come with low voltage condition and had to get a jump start.
Our rear hatch door is electric and I am thinking sometimes that the door open too long is placing a load on the battery. I know the inside the car lights are on but I think the open circuit also is loading the battery “discharging”. I did not have the electric door opener in the HHR and left it open for long periods of time and the lights would go off after a time out period.
