The feeder is held to the window by a suction cup and lays flat against the glass. We get to have dinner and watch the Hummingbirds.....cool!

As we drove along, there were a lot of historical markers along our route but we didn't get to stop at all of them.
We passed fields with large old trees that were obviously planted in rows years ago. This marker explains that the area was a nut farm.
And here we are at the Tyler Rose Garden
In the Mood below was probably my favorite.

The park was really nice and after getting here I found out that you don't need a fishing license. It seems that as long as the water within the park is landlocked within the Park, you don't need a license.
We continued along on our trek and came across this! You will have to click on this picture to see the sacred tractor.
As we continued down the road, we ran out of road and had to turn around.
Back at camp this was my first chance to clean the bugs from the front of the coach. Note Joyce surfing the web, the tree stub is holding the camera for this shot.
Now I'm fat and happy and calling it a day, see ya tomorrow!!!

Figured I would have a drink but it wasn't that easy. Seems that Applebees is in a dry county.
In order to get a drink, I had to show my drivers license so they were sure that I was at least 21 ........ yea right! Next I had to fill out a form listing my name and address so I could get what they call a membership card.
Once that was all done, they issued my the card below and I was cleared to get drunk.
Hey, now I'm a full fledged member of the Texas drinking club and this card can be used in any of the dry counties that serve liquor.

I come home for lunch because I am only a mile away from camp, then I get out of work at 2:30. I get to rest for a half hour then Joyce and I drive to the track and do our two laps.
Tonight we had turkey burgers with fried green tomatoes and ranch dressing. A lot of premier shows on TV tonight on so got to go.

The track is only down the street so I gave in. But first it's important to stretch so I tried but things don't bend like they use to.
There are stations located around the track. These stations offer different ways to hurt yourself. Here I am working out on the balance beam, you should have seen my dismount!

The track is nine tenths of a mile long around a large soccer field and there were some people there already walking. Now I don't feel that I really need to walk nine tenths of a mile every night because I'm already in great shape!!!!!!
Well half way around the track two young women in their late 40's early 50's passed us and asked if we were ok. What was that suppose to mean???
I told them that I was fine and that I was still breathing in and out. Joyce said that they were just being nice, yeah!

Here we are in our new camp, the one problem is that the trains are not that far away and we can hear the whistle as they hit ALL the crossings. And there are a lot of crossings and trains. Guess we'll have to get use to it.
Didn't get to watch the Patriots play ball but from what I heard, we didn't miss much.
The black tank wash stopped working and I wasn't able to rinse the tank when we dumped at the last campground. I did some online research on the Tiffin forum and found that the rinse nozzle tends to get clogged if it's not used at each dumping. People on the forum suggest removing the nozzle and opening the spray holes out to 3/32". So looking at the coach in the picture above, we had to remove the large panel forward of the rear wheel. Once removed, the wash nozzle is install at the top of the tank on the end and was very easy to remove.
The nozzle was clogged and had to be flushed out which wasn't a pleasant job due to the matter that was clogging the small holes.....thank God for rubber gloves. I opened the holes to 3/32" and had Joyce run the water while I held the nozzle in a bucket. Everything was clear and working fine so we put it all back together and ran it for five minutes to insure there were no leaks. Another job well done!!
Had a problem with our Master Card (What's in Your Wallet), it was showing a charge of $13.15 for a bogus company that we never heard of. I looked it up on the web and found that the fraudulent company was created by the Russian mob, yup the Russians are coming! They somehow get your credit card number and charge a small amount to it with the hopes that you won't notice. When I checked online I found that this company was charging the same amount of $13.15 to a lot of people so keep a close eye on your credit card bill. We had our card canceled and a new card issued.
Oh man, back to work tomorrow after a short weekend, oh well I do get to sleep an extra half hour if the trains go easy.
