Saturday May 30, 2009

Bill and I went to the donut shop this morning to pick up breakfast for everyone. Ornell worked last night and had just gotten home when we left. They had some different donuts here. Have you ever had a boudin kolache? Me either....It was very good. Boudin is a cajun sausage that is made with spicy meat and rice and is very tasty. I have had it many times before, just never in a kolache.

One of Bill and Ornell's granddaughters, Lily, is playing in a baseball playoff in Texas City this weekend. They won their game last night and will play at least two games today.

Bill and I got the CB radio mounted in my truck. It went in pretty well, but Bill and I had to relieve each other when we got stiff from the cramped working areas. His shoulders bother him and my back bothers me.
We got it in and got the power run to it, so we went to a CB shop that is run out of a motel room beside the Petro truck stop. The price on the antenna was the same as the Petro's price, and he included the setup of the radio and antenna at that price. He also "juiced up" my radio so it puts out more power (making the Tim the Toolman sounds) and also extends the range of the radio to about 5-6 miles. We got it all set up and immediately blew a fuse to the radio, so I had to go into the Petro to buy a box of fuses. Now it works just fine. It will come in handy on the road.

Bill had started making a beef stew in the crock pot this morning, so we had supper fixed. Stella made some cornbread to go with it, so we had a very good meal. Some of Bill's grand kids also came over and ate with us, along with daughter Tara and daughter-in-law Jackie.

We sat outside in the cool evening on the back porch until the skeeters got bad. It was a very nice day and pretty productive.

So long for now.
