Football and a Water Filter Hunt!

I didn't even watch the Hawkeyes today.  I knew after the big win over Michigan State last week, they would be oh so flat!  And yes they were.  Indiana had us beat fair and square, but then we got a final touchdown to go ahead in the last few minutes.

They roared back and thought they had the wining score at the end of the game, but the receiver dropped the ball as he fell to the ground.  No score!  I'm not going to say Iowa won, but rather Indiana beat themselves, and we were the recipient of the good fortune.    Iowa is now 7 - 2.  With 3 games left.

I went out in search of a water filter for the filter cannister in the motorhome.  It is slightly bigger than the normal filter that is available at the big box stores.  I drove all over, and never found the right one.  I didn't want to buy the slightly smaller one as it seems to be,  well,  less of a filter.  Maybe I will have to call Red Bay and ask what the brand is, and where to get it.  But of course they will want to sell it to me.

That passed the rest of the afternoon after the football games. That is until we headed over to my son Chris' house to have a birthday supper for Loyce, in honor of her birthday.  So non stop conversation and more football on TV, where we cried as Missouri lost their game rather handily.

Turn your watches back tonight, as tomorrow is standard time.  That will be confusing for the first week as we get used to it.  And me, I have to go thru the watch collection and turn them all back.  That will keep me busy for a while tomorrow!

  1. Like you, I watched a few football games as well on Saturday. Some really big scores yesterday!!

    As for watches, I don't have to worry about changing the times back on the 2 wristwatches I own as they both have dead batteries.

    I haven't worn a watch for about 4 years now and I'm kind of used to it as I normally have a cellphone with me. I guess you could say I've gone all the way back to a 'pocketwatch' with my new techie device!!

  2. We just bought all new water filters for our RV. We can pick one of ours up at Wal-Mart, but the other has to be bought at Camping World. Pretty big price difference.
