Where are we today ?
Another cozy night with no wind, thats good. Some sunshine today and temps got all the way up to 41f, but the weather channel says it feels like 36f (2c). Also had a couple light rain showers, just because it could I guess.
A comment yesterday mentioned that we like the heat in the southwest and are OK with the cooler temperatures as well. Well its not that we are ok with the cooler temps its just that we do not have a lot of choices. We are allowed only 182 days a year in the USA and we have pretty much used that up from October to April. Need to spend 5 months on Ontario Canada to qualify for our government health care. So thats why we are here now so we can head back south the end on October in search of warmer weather. We did miss the real bad winter weather here.
We got stuff done a few walkabouts, replace one shock to hold a compartment door open and Suzie got to brush the dogs (Molly but mostly Buddy) for a bit, in their garage.

A bit more computing and read a while, just an almost perfect day except it could be a lot warmer. Daughter number two stopped by to drop off our dinner tickets for the fundraiser and we were able to give her the hand made quilt that Suzie had worked on for years, cross stitched all nine squares buy hand and was hand quilted by her Suzie's mother and a few friends.
Then we met up with her and family at the Plattsville Christian School in town to check out the silent auction, the buffet dinner with live entertainment and the live auction afterwards. This is a yearly fundraiser for the school two of our grandsons attend.

|Lots of larger items for the live auction too|
We arrived shortly after 5 pm, check out all the interesting items until 6 pm when the buffet was ready to go. Lots of great tasting food salads, roasted tiny potatoes, carrots, corn, stuffed roast pork and roast beef. Over 200 meals served.
|oh so very tasty, all you can eat too|
The silent auction ended at 8 pm (Suzie got her tiny hand made trinket boxes) that she has a use for. At a decent price, remember this is a fundraiser. Then the live auction began, they are a lot of fun too and we stayed about another 1/2 hour then time to get home, almost bedtime! I am sure they would be at it for at least another hour.
It was a fun day despite the weather, the auction meal, fundraiser and some more time with daughter and the grands.
Thanks for stopping in again, we do enjoy your company.
