Saturday, in Houston still . . .

Called the RV place and they said they broke something in the landing gear and had to go out and get a  part.  In the meantime, they wanted to know if we wanted our wheel bearing repacked.  We had them greased, but never repacked and told them to go ahead and do it.  With promises of having it done Friday, we started gathering our stuff for departure on Monday.  Never heard from them on Friday, so Jay called them up on Saturday morning and we were told that they would have everything done by 1:00 Monday and get us on the road. We will see.

We went to HEB, the Texas super store.  They give you samples of all kinds of food and wine.  I had a great time and we bought a King's cake.  It's a Mardi Gras tradition.  Fat Tuesday is next week.

In the meantime, today we went to a local craft distillery that makes gin, moonshine, whiskey and vodka.  I'm personally a vodka person, but tried it all.  The gin wasn't too bad along with the peach whiskey.  The vodka was delish, bought a bottle.

After that, we went to the Blue Water Seafood and had crawfish and oysters.  Everything was really good and the decor was right up our alley. Wood and paper towels.  Superbowl is tomorrow and we  are staying with Broncos fans, so Go Broncos!

King Cake, the filling has cream cheese, not fattening at all.

Whitmeyer distillery, one of the few legal distilleries in Texas.

Bourbon and blended whiskey aging in white oak barrels.

The distillers are heated by hot water heaters from Lowes!

Glenn and I shared a dozen oysters.  Jay had his own. He doesn't share well with others.

Fried shrimp, shrimp gumbo, crawfish, oysters; yummy!
