Our Location today is London, Ontario, Canada.
After listening to too many sirens last evening in this urban type environment and then being on the ground floor of this hotel we simply left the Air Conditioning on all night. We had remembered to bring our own pillows which helped us get some sleep but the hard as rock mattress almost cancelled that out. Due to the restlessness Kathy managed to sleep slightly later this morning giving me a chance to start my morning reading.
When we’d stopped at the Dollar Store yesterday to purchase our snacks for the movies we had also purchased a small package of Shortbread cookies. With the complimentary coffee supplied in our room that was more than we needed for our breakfast this morning.
I’d finished shaving before 10:00 and were out the door shortly after. Being unsure of my way around most of London I surprised the both of us when I was able to arrive at my sister Anna’s home without even getting lost once and we’d didn’t use the GPS. Arriving before 10:30 we were even a half hour earlier than expected but that was fine as Anna was still there to welcome us with open arms. We spent the remainder of the morning getting caught up on what Kathy and I were doing now that we had gone Fulltime.

We went to the nearby East Side Mario’s on Wonderland Road where we all chose the Chicken Linguine for lunch. Served with their traditional small Garlic bread loaves hot from the oven the meal wasn’t complete until we each had a chocolate sundae to top off our meal. The entire time there our conversation centered around the kids and how their doing in school and what their future plans are.
Back at Anna’s I changed a bulb in one of the hardest types of light fixtures I’d ever worked on because she couldn’t reach it. Then she showed us the projects that she works on for the missions she is involved with which doesn’t leave her very much spare time. We continued talking about different people in our lives and how they are doing now. She also complimented us for helping our friend Kathie with the Memorial for Ross last Saturday. It was nearly 4:00 when we said our good byes until we meet again but Anna might be heading our way soon and another visit.
Since we’d had to drive through local road construction zone to get to Anna’s she told us how to avoid it by taking a different route out and it worked. We stopped at Len’s Mill Store as Anna had suggested to see if they had any stencils that Kathy could use on the patio project back at our seasonal site at Wildwood Golf and RV Park in McGregor. This was like a textile shop/liquidation outlet on steroids that had unbeatable prices.
When the truck broke down I’d considered changing the battery cable connections because I didn’t like the factory styled connectors that are now used. (Anything to save a dollar.) Amazingly Princess Auto has the ones I wanted to pick up on sale and since we aren’t sure if we’ll make it to the Windsor location before the end of the sale we stopped in their London location and got what I needed.
It was nearly 6:00 when we stopped at Popeye’s chicken for supper. The price was right and the size of the chicken served was much more filling than the competition had to offer.
This evening Kathy noted that yesterday’s blog said we were still in McGregor so I corrected that. Tomorrow we’ll take our time heading back Home from our short vacation and we’ll hope to hear good news about the truck. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It’s about time.
