Saw a rainbow, Doggie fix, a visitor from Germany, now ready to begin our migration in the morning.

Where are we today ?
         Last night went for a quick visit with daughter number 2 and the grands, here Suzie got her doggie fix. And a huge one it was  2 large dogs and 13 puppies. This is my Daughter's dog he is the father of these 13 puppies that arrived on Saturday night. Pure bred Bullmastiff pups so cute.
he wants to be a lap dog,
kinda big though such a suck
13 puppies here so cute
         Actually quite mild this morning, very little heat needed and my early morning walkabout very nice. Even saw this rainbow at the west end of Plattsville's Main street, so wonderful. A good omen for sure.
         Back home to check out our entrance door handle, kinda seems broken. Hmm what now? Well I pulled it apart and found a broken spring. Down to the Home Hardware in town and yep they had a spring in stock that I could make work. Nice and easy fix.
works perfect now
       Ok that was done before 8 am and we secured our coach to move down near the road, just in case it rained. Don't want to get stuck in the lawn up here. Not a big deal with Suzie's help we secured the coach moved sites and all set up satellite dish included in 30 minutes.
Back to our usual spot
        Then at 10:30 headed to New Hamburg to have a nice lunch with her Mom and Dad before we hit the road. They serve very nice tasty meals here. Being a farm community the larger meal is served at noon, that suits us perfect. Today I had veal parmigiana with linguini and snap peas small portion.
so tasty
          Of course desert included that I don't need but was very tasty, fresh made chocolate cake with cherries.
so moist and tasty 
her Mom and Dad at lunch
        Then we headed home picked up our mail on the way and puttered around a bit. check out our coach, tire pressures etc.. Noticed that these Asian Lady Beetles have returned and want to invade our coach again, it was that warm.
Asian Lady Beetles all over
the sunny side of our coach
         About 2:30 got a message from Suzie's cousin Heather from Germany is going to visit her aunt and uncle (Suzie's Mom and Dad). So we gotta go see her its been about 3 years.

Thats the bunch of us in the tea Room
        Got a picture of Heather, Suzie, Heather's son Tuscon and a friend he brought along from Germany. So nice to see everyone again even if only for a short time.
so nice to see them again
         Now we back home for supper ? hmm not gonna happen tonight we fed up. Think some popcorn and share an apple will do the trick very nicely.
         Tonight we relax a bit and ready to get on the move tomorrow. Not far only a couple hours away but crossing the border to Lewsiton New York meet up with some friends for the weekend and then head out on our southwest migration.
          Glad you could drop in again maybe see you on down the road somewhere. Don't be afraid to drop in for a visit. Take us as we are, nothing fancy here.

Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this Spring and Summer.

  1. There must be a gazillion of those beetles in North America. We have bunches of them. Not a problem, except when they find a way in the house. Then they are a pest.

  3. We are watching the birds as they migrate through the Klamath Basin in real time, and watching the snowbirds as they begin their migrations in blog time. It is all great.

  14. That puppy pile just makes you want to lay down with them and snuggle. So cute. We had an invasion of those stupid bugs last year in Virginia and it took us all year to get rid of them. Ick. We are way ahead of you in our journey south - so hope your weather is good for you. Safe travels.
