Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer,
since August 2006
Monday morning and another bright sunny Arizona day. After posting our blog, morning coffees and a walkabout , I did some research trying to contact a family friend (so close we called him Uncle Jim) that I have not heard from in a about three weeks. And to my astonishment found out he had passed away Oct.25th. He was in his 84th year (a life long bachelor) and for the last 4 summers we visited him at his cottage in Haliburton Highlands (he had spent every summer on this lake since he was 13!). We were there 2 times this year and enjoyed his company, a swim in the crystal clear water, stories and tours he gave us of the lake. We reconnected with him a few years ago after loosing contact in the late 1960's. Him and his mother were very close to us back then and I remember a lot of sunday dinners and good times at our cottage with them. After we went full time 4 years ago he became a faithful follower of our blog and commented on a regular basis about places we were, telling us his adventures and many travels all over North America and the world. We even shared a few jokes and updates on our lives and weather via email as well. He will be missed.

Now before we knew it was time for supper so I assembled couple of turkey breast fillets lightly browned and simmered in some low sodium cream of mushroom soup, served with a rice pilaf and broccoli with a bit of cheese sauce. Then we chat for a while, relax, read, and a tv show before bedtime.
