Join us as we travel North America in our
Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August 2006
A beautiful warm night, apparently we had a lot of rain too, (didn't hear it), an early sunrise and some sunshine on and off. Every so often the sun came out from behind the clouds for a bit and it was very hot, but mostly just comfortable and slightly overcast. So coffees and walkabouts, chat with a few people and try to decide what we will do today.
I took the 10 minute drive into the larger town of Forest for some groceries that are not available at the local Arkona Market. My first stop was the Beer Store to pick up our favorite brew, they were sold out in Arkona! Then filled our car with gas and saved $1.50, then went to the large Foodland grocery store to stock up on a few things we needed.
The friendly cashier asked if I get "the discount"?
What discount ?
Are you over 60?
Wow thanks: I got a 5% discount on all our purchases today
Gotta love it, this getting old is starting to pay off.
Then back home in time for lunch and more walkabouts. Still trying to decide what to do today is really a tough decision almost as hard as trying to decide what to make for supper. Suzie wasn't much help making the decision either. We had two choices, lasagne or BBQ a steak. The final deal beaker was the weather, if its warm and sunny we do the BBQ, overcast and rainy lasagne.
So can't do much until its time. I thought I would go for a swim in the pool but there was a bunch of kids having fun, so I let them be. We can enjoy our books and wonderful weather under our awning for a while. Now its time to cook and still nice out, so I fired up the barbie to grill a prime rib steak (they were on sale today), a giant grilled shrimp each, baked potatoes, peas, fresh mushrooms and onions.
Well we never did decide what to do today, we will address that problem again tomorrow. You can see how difficult it is being retired, decisions, decisions!
