First thing this morning its cold again ! -2 c (28f) had frost on the roof of the house and car windshield. Not a good sign, we are really getting the itch to head south. So headed off to Pettigrew's Garage in Plattsville for 8 am, to get the rear brakes done on our Toad (tow car) at 250,000 kms (155,000 miles) our 2002 Saturn is just about due (great tow car). Dale is our reliable mechanic.
Got to the garage and the work has begun. If you care to look, the two pics below are the old brakes then the new ones. You probably don't care much but I had to take the pictures anyways. Got them done before any damage was done.
While the car was on the hoist I checked out our right rear tire that has been making a noise and not wearing very well. So decided to whip into Waterloo, and vist ma maybe get a new tire.
Well stopped by ma's picked up a bite to eat for lunch and Danny was there. Local Handy man from Plattsville working on ma's front walkway. Have known Dan for 25 years or so and is a hard working trust worth guy and does good work. Just gotta wait until he gets around to it if you are not in a hurry.
I have enough back rpoblems, don't need to compound them by doing this heavy work.

After lunch and chatting with Dan for bit I headed off to Canadian Tire to replace the right rear tire on our car. Bought a cheap one in Arizona18 months ago after a nail did in our other one. The belts are shifting and it was vibrating so time to replace. The good thing is we have Candian Tire Money that we earn all year long so the tire and install was free! Yep who does not like free? Got three almost free last year.
Now back home after 3 o'clock, puttered around a bit, then soon time to start supper. Tonight is simple good garlic sausage, fried up, mashed potatoes, mixed veggies, and a tossed salad filled the bill.
|some Dijon Mustard and all is good|
Just another day in the life of us fulltimers, not much different than everybody else, except we do no have time to work and love every minute of every day.
Thanks again for dropping by to check us out, hope you had a good day too.
