Where are we today ?
New Hamburg Ontario
New Hamburg Ontario
A wonderful bright sunny day and its time for us to move on (don't want to wear out our welcome!). First thing 8 am to Pettigrew's Garage in town to service our car (oil change etc..)Back to John and Lea's say our goodbyes and thanks for the moochdocking place then on the road again.
From Plattsville to the farm is about 5 miles so not a very long move. Drove thru more scenic country side and past a nice colorful freshly painted barn, so scenic.
Following the paved roads (don't want to get the coach dirty!) past Punkeydoodle's Corners and down the road to the farm.
Got here about 10:30 and Sandy just got back from Tim Horton's with a couple treats sent home for him, Timbits! (donut holes). Of course he is happy for the treats and happy to see us, which way to go??
|all set up pretty quick|
|soon Omer and Suzie are taking it easy|
Yesterday I spent a large part of the day with John Deere cutting John and Lea's grass. Well when I got here the long grass was calling me, but no John Deere, they have a Grasshopper here. Well I really like this machine. more fun to drive (no steering wheel) and a larger cutting deck.
|all fueled up and ready to go|
So got her ready, fired her up and away we go.

|cows watching me|
Now don't get me wrong I have fun doing this, don't want a job. If we are here and it needs to be done I can probably do it.
All done this chore and Sandy invites us to visit her sister's farm down the road. Let's go look at the old house they tore down today, next to the new house they just built.

Back home getting ready for supper. If you notice wherever Suzie is you are sure to find Omer.
|in the Kitchen|
|On the porch|
Just fired up their BBQ and cooked up a bunch of burgers, and some fries in the Fry Daddy a quick easy supper.
Now we have had a busy day, ready to call it a night, then Sandy ran out to say Dennis just called, there is a Balloon landing just down the road. So we hop it the truck and off we go Balloon chasing.
|watch out for the wires|
|can we land here? nope..|
|how about here? nope!|
|this is the spot|
Once they had permission to land in a certain spot they were down, Balloon quickly folded up, packed it the truck and they were gone, such a magnificent site to see.
|All done in a matter of minutes|
We were captives in Sandy's truck with Omer and she decided Mc Donald's for an Ice cream so off we go . Omer placed his order at the drive thru window.
|Omer and I shared this Caramilk sundae|
Now after a very busy day time to wrap this up and call it a day.
Thanks for stopping by.
