Full Tank & Ready To Go

We use Fry's grocery store (Kroger) as our main source of groceries and they give gas points for every dollar you spend in the store.  The last couple months they have been giving double points on weekends and 4X points for gift cards.  We having been shopping on weekends as much as possible and also taking advantage of the gift cards.

We've accumulated an $.80/gal discount over the past month and today was our opportunity to take advantage of it.  We woke up around 5:30am and prepared to drive to the station at Fry's to fill up the tank.  We took on 90 gallons of diesel at an average of $3.39 a gallon and now have enough fuel to drive 1100 miles.  Of course, I will use the Gas Buddy website to check for cheap fuel on the way back.  So far Odessa, TX has a Texaco fuel station that is an easy in and out and has the cheapest fuel in that area.  Every penny counts  when you have a thirsty fuel tank.

The car is hooked to the motorhome, brake buddy ready to be connected and we will be hitting the road around 7:00am to avoid some of the 104 degree heat on Monday.

We met Gerry's sorority sister Katy for lunch in Green Valley and had a nice long lunch with non stop chatting going on.  Katy is very interesting and has some well known friends.  She is always surprising us with her wide circle of friends and interests.  Katy is one very active and interesting 92 year young woman.  She is recovering from a fall at the present time and seems to be doing well.

When we returned from fueling the motorhome this morning we decided to go out for breakfast.  Gerry must have been hungry since she suggested the Tucson Truck Terminal (TTT) along I-10 east of Tucson.  They serve the largest breakfasts and if you ate there every morning, you would surely gain a ton of weight.  I had a nice omlette and Gerry ordered a huge waffle with strawberries and whipped cream.  Now does this meal look fantastic or not?

Trust me, it is as large as it looks and every bit as tasty. 

That was our day, how was yours?
