What a lost day! I sure am glad we extended our stay here a couple of more days. My day started out trying to get the satellite dish set up. Then about another hour trying to find the instruction manual for the receiver. Then a half hour driving around trying to find an RV store (which was closed), then an hour at Walmart, then the rest of the afternoon working on the satellite again. I can't even get any signal on it.

Tomorrow I'm going to run away. David just called. He went to get something to eat, and now he's lost. And it's dark.

I'm going to get Lukas his supper, and I'm going to have a salad, instead of the Shrimp Creole that David was going to pick up for me from the restaurant here at the campground, that's only open until 7:30 (less than an hour left), that is only serving it today.

Tomorrow I'm running away.

It cooled down a bit. It's only 55° and cloudy. A nice break from the heat. I know, I'm being a stinker, but it's easy to be smug when a week ago it was going to be -16° at night.

We're in a very nice campground south of Houston, very small but good cable and wifi, and only $21.50. If we come down next year, this is going to be a place to check out for staying a week or two.

I really haven't taken any pictures yet. Nothing too inspiring, other than Squeaker.

This is Lukas' new dog. We adopted her in Corpus Christi. I need to get to a Petsmart and get a couple of harnesses. Both dogs have slipped out of their collars, and it's scary! Squeaker is very slowly warming up to us, and Lukas is very slowly warming up to her. She is a sweet little thing, very hard to resist, and hopefully the vet at home will be able to do something with her teeth!

Well, I'm going to surf the net and see if there's anything I want to see down here before we head to Louisiana.
