Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.
The Extra Strength Tylenol almost gave me a sleep filled night after being crammed under the truck yesterday and yet we both struggled to wake up and get moving this morning. Sitting at the dining table with the windows still open from last night Kathy definitely needed to cover her shoulders while having breakfast. With the morning temperature sitting at 52 F (11 C) it was too much for her Neuropathy.
|Along our route the wires were filled with birds ready to fly south.|
It was a weird day because we had lots to do but the majority of it started with phone calls. Of course the first call immediately went to voice mail and the second ended with me being on hold for nearly a half hour. Thank goodness for hands-free headsets. We even managed to get an appointment to have a new set of tires installed on the trailer because the present ones are the same brand of tires that we had two blowouts on our Avalanche and we don’t want a repeat performance.
|Sometimes the air was nearly black with so many birds.|
Once the phone calls were finished we even had time to get caught up on our morning reading and I noted that the problem between Blogger and Word Press had not been resolved. Our daughter Karen had sent us home with a dish of Homemade Ham and Bean Soup last night so we thought we’d sample it for lunch. We ended up finishing the entire container and if there had been more. She did good.
|Sometimes there were more birds than beans in the fields.|
Just before noon I loaded the dead Emerald Cedar Tree that we’d purchased this past April and headed towards Amherstburg with a number of stops to make. The first was at Sun Parlour Trailer where I got some advice from our friend Rob. Then we drove to our son Kevin’s home where we borrowed a pick axe and I returned most of the hand wrenches I’d gathered to work on the Airbags.
Our next stop was Pharma Care Drug Store where I needed to order only a few of Kathy’s medication to last for the next seven weeks before we leave. At that point we’ll get our six-month supply of medications before heading south. Kathy understood exactly what I was saying to the pharmacy assistant but she was turning into a muddle. After finally getting her on track we headed off to the nearby Dollarama looking for some stick-on mirror decorations like we had in our Avalanche. We’d seen them at that store just last week but when we went in today the shelves were being stocked for Halloween and they couldn’t be found.
Thinking we might find them in the Paint or Home sections we went to first Walmart and then Canadian Tire striking out at both stores. We didn’t think we wanted those stick-on decorations last week when they had them but now nobody has them because we do want them. You Snooze, You Lose!
While at Canadian Tire we also exchanged the dead Emerald Cedar for a new one. When the first one was dying we had approached the store within ninety days about it. They agreed to replace it but didn’t have any to replace it with. They told us to come back in September when they would have another shipment. They honored their guarantee to us with a new tree. We also purchased some Peat Moss and Potting Soil so that we will plant all our trees in the ground with hopes they’ll better survive the winter than in the decorative pots. The reason for borrowing the pick-axe is most of the soil on around our site is hard clay.

Back Home after unloading the back of the truck we sat outside in the pleasant warmth. It felt great enjoying the cooler fresh air instead of being captive to the air conditioned trailer like the past couple of months. Even our hearing is improving not listening to its constant drone.
|Last of the Penne and Million Dollar Pie.|
For supper we finished the last of the Penne Pasta and the Million Dollar Pie that Kathy had made yesterday.

When I checked the sidebar of our blog this evening all the other blogs we follow were finally showing which means that by everyone reporting the issue forced Blogger to resolve the problem. Tomorrow we’ll be running errands early and hopefully we might even get Home early and accomplish something here. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It’s about time.
