The last of the rig is out today, then we rested the rest of the day. We will go into town tomorrow as we have not been shopping in ten days and our supplies are low now. My first thought was to go last Sunday but two things changed that plan the rig finished drilling mid day and my wife got up late from her day sleep, I didn’t try to wake her early as she needed the rest. Besides I had been to the store on Tuesday only five days ago. Sunday afternoon after being informed the rig had completed the drilling about ninety minutes later I was busy the rest of the day with vehicles leaving, their work was now complete and others coming to start the rig down job. With the rig out we have no expected vehicles for the weekend. I did not go on Monday as I was too tried after a very busy day of letting vehicles in and out. The rest of th week just did not have the personal drive to make the grocery trip.

there were two vehicles today, the "gager or pumper" comes every day to check the completed well and a transport truck delivering a large backhoe and a return trip with a bulldozer, It was almost one-thirty by the time he was done.
We did it today, “it” we both went to town. Bigger than that we went to a restaurant to eat a late lunch together. Rio Grande city does not have much to offer so we drove further east on US 83 ending up in McAllen, TX . The way home was via the grocery store to stock Buster for the coming week. Additionally I was looking for a coffee maker the one I “had” the switch failed. The switch ps supposed to lock on then release after brewing the coffee. Most of the past week required me to hold the switch on and I released it when I heard the water finishing the cycle. We did not find a single cup to replace that one but in the second store we found a five cup that has a metal carafe that I liked besides the switch is just on and off. Ok now I have to remember to turn the coffee pot off when I am done. Yes there is a warming plate that keeps the carafe coffee warm until the switch is turned off.
