The Camping Life...sorta...

Well, hubby is ensconced in Leroy, Texas once again for the annual fireworks selling binge. This is so that he can pay for what he himself shoots. We may actually see a profit this year--finally. But that isn't the subject of this post.

We have a pop-up trailer with a small pull-out section. It can sleep up to six (un)comfortably. And praise be--we had an A/C installed on the thing when we bought it back in '01. So hubby and son have the pop-up pulled up next to the fireworks stand. Can't leave leave those suckers unattended once you get them stocked.

It's like camping--only more high-tech. We have it hooked up to electricity--you can't run a fireworks stand for ten days in 100 degree plus heat and not have access to cold air--unless you're a masochist. But I digress...

For the past two years hubby has made a daily early-morning trek to the Chevron station for ice to keep the drinking water cold. This year, we bought a small fridge. We now also have wireless Internet access for hubby and xBox 360 for the son to while away the days...not to mention the Nintendo DS (a hand held game) and the new game mom (that's me) was coerced into buying. Well--he offered, without complaint, to stay with dad and help--I thought a little reward wasn't out of line.

So they are there for the duration now, while the girls (the daughters and the canines) and I hold down the fort. We got plans, but I'll mention those in a day or two...
