Just more of the same with a twist.

Where are we today ?
        Again more hot wonderful weather. Ever seen the movie Ground Hog day? The days just keep repeating them selves. And with this kind of weather we don't mind at all. Temps got to 28c but with humidity feels like 37c (98f).The twist was my project today, remove our Lazy Boy recliner and fix a broken handle on the release cable. Last night it was reclined and would not release when I went to bed. So it remained reclined, problem with that it almost completely blocks our entry door. Makes it pretty tight getting in and out.
        Struggled with unbolting it from the floor. Think it weighs over 200 lbs. But a few hours later got things repaired (nice to have spare parts) and all is working good for now.

       That project done puttered around a bit more in the nice cool breeze we are having today. Did the usual, check tires, stow our Weber, roll up our awning and then can enjoy our books in the shade. Loving this hot weather with a nice refreshing cool breeze.

Canadian Flags everywhere, Canada Day tomorrow
      We had planned a nice salad for supper tonight, use up our leftover Turkey and pasta salad. Perfect meal for a hot day. And I can stow the Weber Q and awning early.
yummy
         After supper more warm weather and a nice breeze, enjoying our books and chatting with people walking by. Then Jim dropped in with their dog Max to give Suzie another doggie fix before we leave in the morning. Another couple puppies dropped it too, we having a doggie social hour! Then Sharon and their grandson joined us for a while too, but getting dark so time to pack it in. Time to relax in my fixed Lazy Boy.
         We are heading out in the morning, back to Plattsville. Been here two weeks already and have that hitch itch, gotta get moving again. Also need to get the rear brakes on our coach done too.
         That was it for our perfect summer day, thanks for stopping by. Not too exciting but worked for us.

    1. Welcome back Sharon. We prefer the hitch itch much more than your kind, even though you enjoy what you do.
      Love my Lazy Boy, it came with the coach.

  3. Seems a feller has to be a Mr. Handy Man no matter what kind of dwelling it is. Not much fun wrestling with a beast of a chair, but you got it sorted out.
    I can't say I'd recommend the "Ford" brand of disks for the coach. (Seems to me it's a Ford Chassis you have?) When I did the brakes on our coach, we were able to do all four disks for what Ford wanted for just two. Well almost. Can't remember the name of the type, but it's a very common brake manufacturer. Your mechanic sounds like a common sense kind of guy, so you'll get the best price I'm sure.

      Dale is an great mechanic and does get us the best price on good parts for repairs.

  5. I wish Paul liked cold pasta. I love pasta salad but hate to make it just for me.

    Safe travels.

  6. Happy Canada Day George and Suzie. Safe travels back to Plattsville. I was through there last week delivering to the public school, one of our drivers was on holidays so I was out covering for him. The main street was being paved after the construction that was being done. We have our first visit to Rock Glen booked for July 11-13, looking forward to it. Take care.

  7. Pasta salads are amazing for a hot day. There are so many things out of the refrigerator you can throw into them. Have another great day!
