We were on our way to Harlingen to look at few RV Park for the month of
So, while we were on the interstate towards Harlingen, I noticed our AC
in the car no longer worked. It was 29°C outside.
I selected the option to look at the actual temperature of the engine
when the overheat light came on.
Darn! We took the next exit (200 meters away) to get off the
interstate. The first thing we saw was a Nissan dealership.
Further down the road, more dealership. In less than 1 kilometer
we were at a Chevrolet dealership.
We talked to the service manager and he told us they would be able to
look at the car in about one hour. 45 minutes later he came back
and told us a coolant line had been rubbing for a while and it finally
punctured, releasing the coolant. The service manager told us the
replacement line could be here this afternoon if we chose to get it
fixed here. Of course we wanted fixed. So we waited.
They drove us to the mall close by, we spent a few hours there.
We got back to the dealership by 3 pm to find our car fixed.
It only cost us $194.00 US, not bad at all. After we got the car
back, we went back home without looking at any RV Park.
This is the line that was changed. The line is part rubber and
Both end of the line are made of rubber with the center made out of
We had a nice sunset.
It was bingo night tonight. We were lucky tonight, we won
$22.00. Not bad since we paid $4.50 for our cards!
Our pool and spa at night.
What a day!

This was our second try to visit RV Parks in Harlingen and this time we
Love this sticker.
We visited 3 or 4 RV Parks this morning. We had lunch at
Wattaburger and talked about which RV Park we like the best.
We picked the RV Park Tropic Winds. This RV Park is part of the
They have an introductory price for people who stray in the park for
the first time at $299.00 (US) for the first month.
We are pretty happy with our choice.
Now the bad news. Michele started to have a sore back and it got
worse as the day went by. By the time we got home, she was in
She took some medication and went to bed for the rest of the day.

Today was the day I went back to Mexico to get my good crown put in.
Michele was not with me because of her back pain.
My dentist is at the big purple tooth.
We skyped with Jeremy again today.
This is his ankle. He now has another cast on his lower leg.
Slowly, surely he is getting better and better.
Michele was moving a little more today and the pain has lessen some.

This restaurant was recommended by some campers from our park.
They make very good breakfast and not too expensive either.
On my way back from breakfast, I stooped for gas and on the next stop I
purchased some coax connectors for our TV.
At home, I did fix the coax problem and now we have great TV
reception. I also found one knife we taught we lost during the
summer. It was in the back of a cabinet, hidden from view!
After all this work, I went to the pool, but Michele stayed at
home. Her back is getting better, but she still was being careful.

We simply did what we do all the time

Another day of enjoying the pool, reading, biking, visiting and
enjoying the weather (30C). Sounds like yesterday!
Michele even came to the pool today.
The moon was 12% brighter tonight as she is the closest to the earth.
By the way, the dentist did a very good job on my crown.
