Gas Price Plummets! - Mon., Oct. 28

Last week we paid $3.00/gallon for regular unleaded. Yesterday we filled the tank with gas that cost $2.94/gallon. We haven't seen prices that cheap since 2009.

It's a busy week. I'm working every day through Saturday. On Sunday, we're doing a New Braunfels Wurstfest Volksmarch with our good friends Jim & Peri who are back from their summer road trip. All paid walkers ($3 per person) get free admission to the Wurstfest ($8.00 value). Sounds like a lot of fun.

Bob felt good during his 11-mile run on Saturday and on our 10.2 miles of walking yesterday; however today his knee hurts and he's putting ice packs on it. Not good timing because he's training for the San Antonio Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon on November 17. Hopefully it will go away with rest, elevation and ice.

When I arrived home at 6:00 p.m. Bob was already here. What a nice surprise. He had replaced the blue water filter on our incoming fresh water hose, took out all the recycling (boxes from Costco and cans from making chili), and made a nice salad. I told Bob how nice that was and he said, mocking me, "Where is my husband and what have you done with him?"  Well, Bob, I don't have to say that because you're always helping out around the 5er. <3

Short little blog today to balance out yesterday's long one.

Yesterday Sunnie was in a box. Today, it's Bowie in a boot box...

Travel Bug out.
