sewer repair

 this is what the yard looked like after the sewer repair was done. even through i sold my house at the end of May, I'm still responsible for this repair. The plumber has finished the job, just waiting for the ground to settle so the sidewalk and sod can be installed. The poor new owner had a 3 foot pile of dirt in front of her front porch since July.

Food truck Tuesday

Rita and I attended a food truck evening at the riverfront. This was our first venture to a food truck experience.

I ordered a pita at this truck
it was a beautiful evening; tons of people, good music, great food, a real community evening. reminded me of city centers in Ireland and Scotland.

brave souls dancing to the music
Rita and I took a stroll down the Katy Trail that runs through the park. This is the high water mark along the trail. The mark was about 8 feet above our heads as we stood on the trail.

one of the buildings of the American Car foundry that build railroad cars.
