Join us as we travel North America in our
Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August 2006
Now this is more like it, sunshine and warmer again! Up early enjoying the sunrise and fresh air but no juice, no coffee, no food we are fasting before going to the Lab in Strathroy to get our blood work done for our yearly physical. So we get there first thing in the morning, in and out in 10 minutes then to the 7-11 store to check out a new cell phone, but first a coffee! They have pretty good coffee there.
Let me tell you about this cell phone. We have our main cell phone thats good in Canada and the USA no long distance and no roaming. In the USA we purchased a cheap Track-fon for $9.95 with no contract and found it works really well but only in the states. I was trying to find one similar for Canada, and after searching the internet the other rainy day I stumbled across Speakout Wireless available only at 7 eleven Stores in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Manitoba. Well we think this is a pretty good deal. We bought an basic tiny cell phone (with built in Flashlight, cool) $49.00, but with $50.00 purchase of airtime we got the phone for $29.00. No contracts, no system access fees, free call waiting, voice mail etc... The $50.00 airtime is 200 minutes good for 365 days! and as long as we top up our time before the 365 days any used minutes are carried over. So for $29.00 and $50.00 or less a year I can have an emergency phone of my own, Suzie can now find me anywhere! This is handy because many times one of us has been out somewhere and need to contact one another, but we only had one cell phone, this should eliminate the problem. No I won't tell you the number only Suzie knows that.

Back home to putter around, enjoy the warm air, sunshine and chats with a few neighbours outside, read for a while (in the shade) its quite warm today. Emile and Monique stopped over for happy hour then we fired up the barbie to grill a marinated cornish hen, potatoes with onions, broccoli and my favourite Swiss Chalet dipping sauce on the side.
