We regress just a little. On our trip from Alabama to Tennessee, we set our cruise control at 58 MPH rather than 62 and that increased our miles per gallon from 11.2 to 12.7 while towing; based on $4 per gallon, that that will result in a $500 per year savings in the fuel budget.
The greater Nashville area has been experiencing unusually high temperatures with Saturday setting a new record high at 91*. For us, it has been just wonderful to be able to sit outside and enjoy the warmth.
Yesterday we enjoyed a nice family cookout with “hamburglers” and hot dawgs along with Momma’s ‘tater salad and Duke’s baked beans - It was all so yummy! Mike and Peggy joined us as they are part of the family, after all. Around three o’clock, Judy made up some of her world famous frozen margaritas; just right for cooling us down a hot summer’s afternoon (it maybe spring here, but for us northerners it feels like summer).
I think Mike, Peggy, Judy, and I are planning on a nice relaxing day. This afternoon another severe weather pattern is suppose to pass through the area. It seems that the nation has been experiencing one “severe” weather pattern right after another this year. Thunder storms are predicted in our area around three which is “Tea Time”, so we’ll just have to have a Margarita Thunder/Lighting Party – any excuse will work.
Take Care Until Next Time - - - - - -
