    Another warm night for sleeping and our last warm one for a while. Looks like down to 45F overnight and a high of only 45f tomorrow, Our heat wave is history. We enjoyed it while it was here though.
     I will start you off will a few colourful fall pictures I took around town today.
         First thing this morning we took our coach to Pettigrew's garage in town for service for 8 am.. Lube oil and filter and Dale goes over the coach thorughly for us, Brakes  should be good for another winter's travels. Belts, pulleys, hoses etc all look good and he replaced the rear sway bar bushings we had replaced about 5 years ago in Arizona , but they were not installed with the supplied lubricant like they should have been so were worn again. Ford does not sell these bushings separately, only the sway bar assembly for over $500.00.  But I found the bushings on e'Bay for only $55.00 cdn. much better deal.
new sway bar bushings
these look good 
the old ones not so much
          When got back up again at Camp Awesome by 9 am and connecting the BBQ . The annoying compartment door  kept falling. The spring lift (strut)was worn out so a quick trip to Leisure Days Rv down the road I grabbed a new one and installed it, much better now, this compartment now stays open like it should, no more hitting me in the head.
much better now
    A light lunch then to New Hamburg for a few groceries and home to relax outside for a while , not too bad at 62 F but mostly cloudy with a west wind behind us.
yup much cooler today
     We did get to read outside for quite a while , just need some warmer clothes, At 62 f not that bad compared to the upcoming weather.
still nice enough to read outside, with no sunshine
     About 4:30 a preheated our Weber Q made a tasty salad and grilled a small pork loin roast we had on our grill mat.
reading beside my Weber smelling the roast cooking
not long this was done perfectly,
pork loin, salad, home-made applesauce
and rhutabaga, yummy
      Supper done some more leftovers , dishes done and finish this posting, Read for a bit more and watch a detective show on tv. then soon time to call it a night.
      Oh we put our 100 pound comforter on the bed to keep us cozy with this forecasted cold weather coming, may even turn our heater on in the morning as well.
       Thanks again for stopping on by .
