 clic a pic to enlarge it
      Another gonna be rainy day, but did get a couple of short walkabouts before the rain began.
then it rained and rained
      Then shortly after 10 am we secured our awning as we will be away most of the day. Going to a visitation at a funeral home in St. Catherines Ontario, Should be about 2 hr and 30 minute drive. Left at 11 am and arrived 3 hrs 30 minutes later due to very heavy rain and many traffic slow downs. We drove in very heavy rain for the first 2 hours, wipers barely keeping up. Arriving at 2:30pm met up with both my daughters, and all 3 grand daughters. Visiting for my son's spouse's (Jane's) father who passed away at a too young age of only 68.
      We waited in line all the time chatting with relatives, our son and DIL and meeting more,  for over 30 minutes met Jane's family and expressed our condolences.
our 2 youngest granddaughters
        We left there around 4 pm and decided we could stop for a bite to eat as we all had long drives home. Duffs is a neighbourhood bar that Jane took us to last fall, they have great wings and pizza and just down the road.
this be the place
       Arriving early not busy yet so we got a table for the 7 us and our friendly waitress was right there to get our drinks and take our food orders.
pictures and plaques all over the walls for the local hockey teams
nice and quiet  an lotsa room
excellent service as well
I could not resist their wings (suicide sauce on the side), fresh cut frys
 and celery carrots with blue cheese
no carbs or calories right?lol...
Suzie ordered an excellent medium Pizza so
we could take leftovers homeand we did.
nice to see these guys again, even it
it was for  funeral visitation,
and a short visit but better than none.
        We left there shortly after 5 pm and arrived back at Rock Glen just before 8 pm. Just before the rain began again! It was a long day. Now kick back relax finish this posting and call it a night.
        Thanks for dropping in and hope you a nicer less rainy day than we did.
