Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.
After going through quite an emotionally charged memorial in celebrating someone’s life not on his value of worth but what he gave back to the community and the values he instilled in his family and friends we were both totally drained last night. Both Kathy and I were more than happy for the contribution we made in celebrating Ross’s life yesterday and will continue to help Kathie through her grieving.There was no trick photography or excessive Photo-Shop done to any of the few pictures that were posted in last evening’s blog. Our honorary nephew Dwayne does have to duck through any door that he walks through and is sensitive about it but is very active in sports. He also has a job that even the most hardened people that society has produced give him respect.

By the time we’d gotten home last night I could barely get my shoe off and the discomfort required an Extra Strength Tylenol to ease the pain. That and the fresh air we got by sleeping with the windows open had the both of us sleeping until 8:00 this morning. We enjoyed breakfast before going to the computers where we even spent additional time this morning.
Fortunately, when we leave in the morning we’ll be leave the windows ajar and the Air Conditioner turned off but when we return we’d be fools to not turn it on the minute we walk in. The Humidex we’ll be facing towards next weekend will be a test to anyone who works outside in our region.
While Kathy did some reading after lunch I worked at replacing the failed Static Strap on the car. It was quite surprising that a pair of Vise-Grips were required to remove both of the screws. Once that was completed I finished removing anything that wasn’t needed in the trunk. Since we don’t have the truck back from the repair shop yet we’ll be using the car to drive to London tomorrow.
|This one's for you Ross.|
By supper even though I’d kept off my foot to limit the pressure on it was difficult to simply put on Flip-Flops. I needed to grill a couple of Salmon fillets while Kathy was busy baking a sweet potato and sautéing some Spinach for sides. It all tasted great and was served in very healthy portions. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It’s about time.
