You won’t get a charge out of this…..

Today started out cloudy and cold.  Temp around 10 was in the low 40s.  But at least it was not raining!

First thing I did was to go outside and fix a small water leak on our feed line in.  Nothing major, just a loose connection.  Easily fixed.

I watched Oregon beat Wisconsin in the afternoon.  Good game, lots of scoring, and most importantly, great officiating!  The announcers could stand to learn the rules better, but the officials were top notch.

Carol planned to go to Safeway today for some supplies.  However, the battery on the car is dead.  The battery posts were all messed up but some baking soda and water fixed that well. 

Tomorrow I will call AAA to come out and jump start me and then run to Les Schwab for a battery.  Will have it checked as it came from them and then see what is going on and what needs to be done.

I was going to play golf today but it started out too cold, so may try tomorrow or may not. Depends on the battery, the weather, and what else we have going on at the time.

No rain in the forecast, but still cold at night.  We plan to stay here tomorrow night and go to the half price buffet at the casino.  We will leave here on Wednesday and head to Patterson to overnight and then onto Pismo Beach.

Yes, that was a great game, and the officials did an excellent job. We are happy that the Ducks won. Always sad for the losing players, who really played a great game. The Ducks have lost some close games in the past, so we know how they feel. Now, remember what I said about that buffet.

I agree about the officiating...too bad cuz I couldn't yell at them like I normally do!! We sure enjoyed the game and the Badgers played really well too. Enjoy that half price buffet tomorrow and travel safe on Wednesday.
