Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.
Even though it was not quite two weeks ago that we traveled to London, Ontario to do some visiting our stay in the Hotel didn’t feel anywhere like staying in our daughter Karen’s home did last night. First the Hotel room was much smaller than just their living room. Second it has been quite a while since either of us have heard the tapping of pet’s toenails on the floor at night. Third poor Sanford was so happy not to be alone that it didn’t matter which one of us left a room he stuck to us like glue.
Knowing that Sanford has never seen anyone wearing a CPAP mask we had to come up with a plan so he wouldn’t think some alien had just taken over our bodies. We each made certain that he watched us apply the mask and spoke to him as we did it. That didn’t stop him from standing at alert before sniffing our legs before he relaxed.

The saying “There no place like Home” still held true because when we began our Fulltiming Adventure and moved our trailer to Wildwood Golf and RV Park we no longer had to listen to the dozens of emergency Sirens going by in an evening. While living in the apartment we were hardened to that but not now. Another thing we don’t hear at the park are trains. Again while in the apartment we heard quite a few each day sounding their horns as the approached crossings. Where Karen’s home is located the moderate speed Via passenger train passes only feet from her backyard and because of its speed the whistle is sounded long and hard many times a day and night.
It wasn’t the worst night’s sleep we’ve had but it truly wasn’t the best so it was nearly 8:00 this morning when we got up. With a fenced in yard it was easy to let Sanford do his thing while we started prepping his and our breakfast. After eating we didn’t have the same amount of time to read at the computers because someone impatiently wanted to play. Of course he had me more tired than himself so there was only one other thing that could be done, take him for a walk

As soon as we took his collar and leash from the closet Sanford almost bowled me over so that I’d put it around his neck. As soon as I open the door to head out Sanford also felt that it was his duty to grab the leash in his mouth and start leading. It took some doing but I finally got him to slow down and let me lead the way. Another thing we are out of practice is cleaning up after our friends but I managed. After our two-mile walk in warm temperatures was over I finally got a chance to finish my morning reading with one very tired little guy sleeping at my feet.
Around 2:00 this afternoon Karen called to let us know her friend that we were filling in for would be able to stay with Sanford for tonight. We could have stayed but being tired from our restless night of sleep we agreed. Luckily Sanford was playing with his buddy Allen another Furkid, so we wanted to get everything packed up and load it in the car to avoid some of the sad eyed puppy look we’d be getting later.

Once we called Sanford for supper, we left him in the air conditioned house while we went out for Chinese food. The place we went was right next door to the apartment building we just moved from back in April. The service was fast and courteous, plus both are meals tasted great with enough left over for another meal all at a very reasonable price. After supper we returned to Zehrs grocery store where Kathy used her list of things we were running low on back at the trailer.
At Karen’s home we took Sanford out for another run in the backyard but as soon as we got inside we got the look that said he knew were leaving. Even with our explaining that Joe was coming over he just lay by the stairs on his blankey and watched us leave. We even felt sad!

It was past 8:00 when we got Home and I’d barely got in from unloading the car when the skies opened up and the rain came down. It then took another hour to set up all our equipment so we would feel like we were Home again. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It’s about time.
