We were up at the crack of dawn and off we went for that retail fix for Sandy. To our surprise traffic was light on our way to Deerfield Mall. Upon arrival at the mall Macy's was open but lacking the traditional Christmas shoppers. For the most part it was this way everywhere we went. The anticipated crowds just didn't happen. Maybe it was the time of the morning 7am and Houstonians just don't get up that early or most everybody has already got their shopping behind them.
While at Macy’s I decided that enough was enough and decided to venture back to the Jeep while Sandy continued to shop. The Deerfield Mall is not to far from the George H Bush International Airport. Must have been the peek time for Sunday morning as there must have been 20 or so aircraft that landed in a very short period of time.
After our shopping experience we went to my sisters home. Her son Wade was in between jobs and was leaving for Oklahoma Tuesday to be with his family for Christmas. Sis invited us to join them for some pizza and good fellowship. Our visit was great as it has been awhile since we last saw him. Wade is a inspector for a large pipe line company and travels from job to job with his 5th wheel. We returned to the motorhome and watched a little of Ice Bowl 2 between Chicago and the Vikings. Hated to see Brett Farve return and get knock out of the game again. I hope he realizes its time to hang the cleats up. There is life after football.
We have always had a problem with glare of the sun coming into the front windshield with the beige curtain drawn. Sometimes it was very annoying when trying to watch TV during the day. We solved the problem by purchasing some black sunscreen that had a 75% blockage. We cut it to fit the front and installed it with five clips to the curtain rail. It slides open and close with the curtain and blocks that annoying glare. We will remove it for traveling and from the photo below it doesn’t look that bad either.
Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers.
