First thing on today’s agenda was to install the new VHF radio Calvin, one of the houseboat guys, kindly picked up for us yesterday when he was in St Charles, MO.
Jeff helped us test the new radio out once Dale installed it.
The radio worked on first try. Dang, you are good Dale.
Half the fun on Sunday is looking for the Vikings Game
The first stop didn’t have the Vikings game. We still stayed for a beer and an hors devours because they tried so hard to find it on their cable TV.
Probably the most unhealthy green beans I’ve ever eaten, but they were good. A side benefit of sitting at the bar is that if the bartender accidently pours the wrong beer she gives it to a patron. Dale scored a beer.
Socially distanced slot machines at the bar. Clear plastic partitions between the stools.
We wandered on in search of the Vikings game.
None of these places looked like they would have the Vikings game.
We never found the Vikings game but my FitBit was happy.
Planning for out next Loop.

Coffee and the radar controls
Now a new VHF radio! It’s about half the size of the old one.
And then there’s the gages like fuel gage, temperature gage, rpm tachometer, volt meter and oil pressure.
