Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August. 2006
Again bright sunny and hot. Good for the farm, Dennis can get his hay off the land if it stays like this all day. I left at 8:00 am and went to visit Ma in Waterloo and put a fresh coat of blacktop on her driveway before it gets too hot and a new cartridge in her kitchen taps. I was back at the farm for lunch then we relaxed a bit and puttered about.

About 3:30 pm our friends Marc and Erin returned our phone call and invited us over to their house in Plattsville for a swim. We had an excellent visit with them, their son Jason and neighbour Alex (he sold our house). Their backyard is like a resort with the shade trees, pool, hot tub, cabana, bar, gazebo, chairs and lounges and huge BBQ. Before I knew it Marc (loves to cook) was throwing together an awesome meal of beef with peppers, beef & gravy, hamburgs, potatoes, tasty tuna salad, coleslaw and veggies and insisted that we stay. And so we did, having a great visit with old friends, discussing how we are enjoying our retirement. Then we returned to the farm at dusk with the guys still working on the fields until after dark, but they did get the hay off.
