Down Home Alabama . . .

After sleeping in a little our first day back in Alabama, we headed out about 10:30 for lunch and some errands in Huntsville.

But our first stop was at the Athens Post Office where we dropped off our South Dakota Absentee Ballots in a Priority Mail envelope. They’ll be there Monday just in time to go to the polling place on Tuesday.

Next we headed about 20 miles over to Rosie’s Cantina in Huntsville, our favorite Mexican place in this area. Jan says their Chili Relleno ranks up there with some of the best,  and my combo Chicken/Beef Fajitas were great, too. They also have a great Tres Leches, but we were just too full.

After that great lunch, we headed down the road a couple of miles to Sam’s Club to pick up a few things, mostly vitamins.

Then heading back toward Athens, we stopped off at Books-A-Million, probably our favorite bookstore. They have a much wider selection of magazines than Barnes & Noble, including many I’ve never found anywhere else.

We got back to the rig about 2pm and after putting things away, we had plenty of time for a nice nap.

About 4pm we drove right next door to my Aunt and Uncle’s house for dinner. My Aunt Jan fixed a great dinner of Chicken Wings, Cole Slaw, and Potato Salad. Really good.

Later we were joined their son Wes, my cousin, his wife Helen, and their kids, Stahlie, Darby, Luke, and Harland. We had a great time talking and catching up with the rest of family. It always feels good to come back home here.

We finally headed back to the rig after everyone started yawning. Tomorrow we’ll be getting together with some other branches on the family tree.


Thought for the Day:

The only thing “Green“ about Green energy is the mount of money that is invested into it.

  1. Just wondering, are you still using Diesel Kleen. I started using it after reading your blog. I haven’t seen any increase in mileage, but I believe the engine runs better.

  2. OK wait…what about the relay and the five amp fuse? Didya get that sorted out?

  3. Bob,

    Since we’re spending so much time getting together with relatives here in Athens, I may not even look at it until we’re down in Gulf Shores for a week or so.

    Since everything works fine except for the house batteries not charging from the engine, it’s not a big problem.

  4. BTW, it’s Harland – not Harley.

  5. Jim,

    Yes, I am.

    But I normally only use it every other fill up.

    Seems to be working good.
