A Whirlwind Day

Neither of us slept well which resulted in Michael getting up very early and I followed close behind.  I had so much on my mind—a very long to do list.  We are going to Arkansas for Christmas—the time off decision was made so off we go sometime Friday.  With that decision made my to do list got even longer. 

Michael had an appointment over in Corpus Christi this afternoon—something to do with security clearance.  The owner of the car we are buying called about 11:30am and we arranged to meet at a bank near the county tax assessor office.  In order to get a temporary license plate, we needed a notarized bill of sale which the bank was kind enough to do for us.  The folks in the tax assessor office could not have been nicer.  In less than 15 minutes we had temporary license plates and were the proud owners of a 2009 Cadillac SRX.  Cool!!IMG_5613

Quickly dropped the jeep off at the motorhome and made for Corpus.  Michael’s appointment was almost a disaster—seems our VISA company didn’t like the fact I charged something in Montana yesterday morning and was now trying to charge the fee for this security clearance thing in Corpus Christi, TX.  We had this same issue while traveling from MT to TX and thought it was resolved—nope—VISA rejected the card.  We finally got a real person on the phone and the issue was resolved.

Back to Aransas Pass and dinner preparations—and a very disgruntled left home alone Emmi girl.  Spaghetti for dinner—very, very good dinner even if I do say so myself.  Rollie joined us and we had a very enjoyable evening.  Tomorrow’s to do list is even longer!

  7. Oh Oh, bet that Caddy is going to smooth out your bones too much. Without the Jeep jouncing you around all over the place your gonna get out of shape pretty fast. Going from the Jeep to a Caddy will be like going from a young bucking Bronc to an old gray Mare with a super cushy saddle. But, your probably going to love it anyway. I would really enjoy the better sound system & quiet ride for sure:))

  11. We have had all kinds of issues with credit cards because we're full-time travelers and frequently move from state to state... Even though we've called to "report in" we've had embarassing times when our card has been denied. In fact, it happened yesterday when we tried to charge our schooling to a place in Spain. Apparently the card company (Capital One) thought it was a fraudulent charge). If you ever figure out how to circumvent these problems, let me know.... we usually charge with Discover (love that "money back") but Discover doesn't usually work in foreign countries. Now we're dealing with that for our Spain trip. Seems big business just don't understand the life of an RVer! Oh Yes... nice car! And.... Safe Travels!
