A hot fall Saturday, almost warmer than our summer.

Where are we today ?
          Just more amazing weather again today, sure can't beat this for the end of September. A few morning walkabouts, viewing the fall colors here and there as some of the leaves are beginning to change color, making for wonderful scenery.
        As the temperatures warmed up I got in the mood to make use of this wonderful weather. Today's project was to Wax our car, this I do once a year. Its a 2006 Saturn that we tow behind our coach. 180,000 kms (111,000 miles) on the odometer, and about 300,000 kms (186,000miles) when you add in the towed mileage. It still looks good and runs very well, and has never been driven on the salty winter roads in Canada.

          This was the temps we had to deal with today, not a problem at all for us and not a cloud in the sky.
         More walkabouts, chat with a few neighbors, a nice 40 minute work out in the gym, and enjoy reading in the shade for a while. Then shortly after 3:30 we had a few friends drop by for "Happy Hour" with two dogs, Clemson and Lady Girl. Some had met before but we knew everyone. These are fun get togethers, chat with new people and make new friends, solve all the problems of the world , compared or rviing stories and make more contacts with the rv community.

we had a fun time here in the shade on a perfect fall day
         Then every body went their own way (supper time ya know) I fired up our Weber Q, grilled a huge smoked pork chop, some cauliflower and onions in foil and a fresh Jalapeño pepper I stuffed with cream cheese.

We shared the pork chop and enjoyed a tasty salad with it too
          Supper done, a short walkabout and watched Rob playing with his Quadcopter showing the kids how it worked. Such a cool toy, it even has a camera that can take pictures while flying over head.

pretty cool (expensive) toy
          That was another great day outside, then we enjoyed our e readers outside until 8:30. Love the fact that they have built in lighting. Now its time to head inside, relax, post this blog and watch the tube for a few minutes before I fall asleep.
          Would like to thank y'all for stopping in again today and really hope you had an amazing Saturday as well.

  1. Nice to visit with all those friends. It looks like Suzie is becoming a Dog Whisperer.
    Everyone is complaining about the shorter days were getting lately but if you are like us when the sun goes down it feels like it's time to hit the sack.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. It was a good idea to take advantage of the nice weather to shine up the 'toad'. Happy hour seemed to just that; happy.

  5. Can't believe this great weather. Hope it lasts until Christmas. Unfortunate that it didn't visit us more back in the summer, but that's spilt milk not worth crying over. Enjoy your day!

  6. Looks like it would be too easy to get an unwanted haircut if that quadcopter wasn't flown carefully! :cO

  7. Love those warm fall days! You are in an area where you get beautiful fall colors. Glad you're able to enjoy a little of that before it's time to leave the area and head south.

  8. It was great to see you two again and enjoyed the happy hour time meeting new campers for sure! Especially when we find yet another 'twilight zone' connection with Rob and Pat. Small world it is. It was wonderful to relax for a bit after a crazy busy work week.
