Where are we today ?
If you read yesterday's posting this is the rest of the day after our broken car. We made it to Phil and Joyce's for supper after all. Below is a a picture of the group except me, (I took the picture as you probably figured out). Way back when Suzie, Joyce and Darla all hung out and got into a lotta trouble, then they all settled down and are still friends. Phil is Suzie's second cousin and from there I get all confused. Ben and I are from wherever? But hey we sure have fun together.

then Ben and Darla.
Phil cooked up a bunch of excellent farmers sausage on the BBQ, and Joyce made a wonderful potato salad, brocoli salad and caesar salad, and then some warm garlic bread to top it all off. Oh did I mention we had homemade mustard too!
|strawberry/rhubarb , my personal favourite!|
|Their cat (whose name I forgot) likes to drink the water from the fish tank,|
but is afraid of the fish! so cute!
It was so nice to get together with friends, share stories and enjoy a wonderful meal. The evening went way too fast and before we know it, its after 10 pm, (way past my bedtime). So we head back home to crash. There is still a few people that have to go to work in the morning (We do remember when we had to to that too).
That's the end of Tuesday
now fast forward to Wednesday Morning
Colder this morning but we did have some sunshine. No news on our car yet so a quick trip to the garage to see how they are doing. Have not had a chance to look at the car yet. So gave Ma a call and headed into Waterloo to hook up a new cordless phone for her. She can't hear the old one that she has had for 19 years. New one not much better so took her with me to find a better one. Stopped at Staples, nothing, but at Walmart had the perfect phone, large numbers and very loud volume, perfect for us older people that are short of eyesight and and can't hardly hear anymore. Forgot to take a picture of her new phone but I think it is awesome. Hope she can get used to the new technology.
I almost forgot my appointment for hearing tests and 1 pm today. Its been 5 years. Went thru the tests and yes I am still hearing impaired (deaf). So new (hearing aides) or hearing appliances as they call them nowadays are now on order, make me happy and Suzie, well she will just love it, maybe, just maybe I can hear her again.
Then finally back home and gonna whip up supper. But its cold and blowing snow. The picture below did not show the snow, but it was blustery.
|just plain cold|
cooked to perfect on our Weber Q-100

Glad you could drop on by again for a quick visit. It's gonna get warmer soon right?
