The battery is low, the battery is low
John is in the bathroom and annoyed I yell at him
"shut that thing off already or put a battery in it"
What thing he replies... He didn't hear anything talking.
The battery is low, the battery is low.
"That thing!"I say, can't you hear that thing talking?
The battery is low, the battery is low.
Well finally he does hear it and I am glad I am not crazy but heck if we could figure out what in our house talks that has low batteries.
After ruling out the cameras, phones, alarm clocks and even the sleep apnea machine, the talking thing gives up her warnings and we went back to sleep.
The next day John looks up at the smoke alarm..maybe?
I pushed the test button and guess what??
The battery is low!
How was I supposed to know the damn thing can talk?
Now where did I put those batteries??

Gosh it hurts just typing it.
The Astros game was fun, even if we lost.
The people 2 rows in front were so drunk they could not function and that provided some entertainment until the jerks bought out the beer vendor of his 7 dollar Bud Lights before he could get to me..argh!
It was Christmas in July and they gave aways some Astros Santa Hats, one of which has already been shredded by one or more of our resident Kitten Clauses......hohoNo bad kitty.
I can't leave anything out.
They photoshopped the players into Santa on the Jumbo Tron as they came up to bat and that was pretty cute.
They did the Padre players like Rudolph with red noses and that was a little rude-- but funny.
There were supposed to be fireworks and I was looking forward to that but it was cancelled due to the rain.
At least games can not be rained out here.
We play baseball inside in Houston.
All in all it was a good day...for a birthday I mean.

Jack, Sawyer or Charlie.
We are in the Houston area, but would be
willing to travel a few hours if a good home is found.
He has an infection and the lesions are still forming.
We are treating him at home with antibiotics and fluids.
He seems a little better this morning.
Everycat got weighed and checked over.

We got up early for the drive home.
We didn't think we could make it all the way but pushed hard and
got home around 8pm.
It was nice to sit on the porch with a beer
and be surrounded by kitty cats.
Now I have to buckle down and sell some homes!
Thanks everyone who stopped by.
No pictures today just driving.
We got pretty tired and trying to avoid the higher
prices went off road to the Fort Payne Inn.
It looked kind of old, but the price was good so got the room.
Well, they say you get what you pay for...not true
this place was really gross.
I should have gone right back in and
demanded a refund but we just did not feel
like movin' on down the road and figured
we could handle it for a few hours sleep.
I went looking for a pen and paper and
wouldn't you know if found an old
piece of pizza in a drawer....YUCK!
From now on we will remember Ft Payne as Ft Pain,
or maybe Ft PigSty..ha.

Looking for a room that takes my roomsaver coupons.
It was good we started looking early because a couple of
hotels said they are out of coupon rooms and wanted to
charge us double the price.
We ended up in Mt Jackson, VA
We found this Civil War Cemetary while looking
around for a place to eat.

You know I am going to put my feet in the water.
that you do not speed in VA. There are cops Everywhere!
drive in 4 states in one hour!
Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvannia!
After we got to PA, we looked at the map and John realized that
Gettysburg is not so far off our trail so that's where we ended up.
This is the Gettysburg Hotel
We are not staying here.
We have a $49 room up on the
he did not appear to need help with his address.

We spent the morning at Rock City.
Suspension Bridge...not scary
The falls off "lovers leap"
Notice I did not say "fall"
From the summit you can see 7 states, but there are
no lines like if you were looking a real map
so I just took their word for it.
After the fun hiking we got back on the road and
made it just over the VA state line before calling it a day.

but when we got to Alabama the sun was shining.
We stopped in Birmingham for a little rest and walked
through Vulcan Park
No other tourists were there and we got our own private tour!
This is Edward, he runs the place....well runs around it
We then proceeded into Georgia for all of 20 minutes and now are
kicking back in Tennessee where it is pouring down rain
