Just how cold was it this morning? Well Dennis stopped by about 6:15 for his morning coffee and comments it was cold! So I get the flash light and look outside at our thermometer. It was 0 c (thats 32 f "freezing"for our American friends). Either way its cold out there. Guess that means that fall is really here. Good thing we have only 24 days left before we begin our southern migration (wish it was sooner). Let's hope for some "Indian Summer" in the meantime.
Then early morning coffee fix with a bunch of guys at Pettigrew's, back home and work on the first leg of our route to Florida We are meeting up with Rob and Pat in New York state and travelling together to The Good Sam Rally at Daytona Speedway arriving there the morning of Oct. 31st for some fun times. Then will probably make our way slowly to Arizona.
After lunch just puttered around doing a bit more maintenance outside on our coach, lube the tow bar, hinges etc.... And I hooked up our Mr Heater propane heater. Nice and quiet, more efficient than our furnace, just because we are going to need it soon anyway.
By about 3:30 this afternoon it was almost warm in the sun, except for the cold north wind 15c (60f).
So a very tasty easy meal, Sloppy Joe's salad with veggies and dip. Everybody pitched in to make it easier for her mom and dad and we had a great time.
Then the cakes came out, our favourite Angel food with boiled icing and a chocolate cake made with spelt flour for Dennis. Believe it or not she did manage to blow out all the candles, guess she is a windbag after all ! (oops, I gonna get in trouble for that one).
Then relaxing on the couch all of a sudden a great niece Sienna wants to sit on my knee and we got to play for a bit.
But now its time to go to Suzie's Mom and Dad's we have been invited for cake and ice cream for a belated birthday celebration. As it ends up most of her family was there from Grandma (97), her siblings, aunt, uncle, nieces, nephews to Gradmas great, great grandchildren 5 generations in all, 24 in total by my count.

Now to finish off with cake, strawberries and ice cream, yep its was all good.
But soon its getting late and we need to get home to post the Blog, Aunt Delores gave me heck today for not having it posted by 10 o'clock some nights, as she waits up wanting to read it. Well here it is tonight, hope its not too late for you. But as my fellow bloggers know some days its just not possible and not always easy to come up with some thing to say.
Anywho, glad y'all stopped by to see what we are up to.
