Where have we been this winter ?


  1. It was a perfect day again. We had fun with you at the market and fun meeting new followers at Happy Hour. No way could this day be any better!

    1. Yes Patsy it was a perfect day and meeting new followers was a bonus as well.

  2. Nice sunset pictures.
    Tom and I were just thinking we need to take time to go over to that market. It would be nice to have a sunscreen to attach to the awning. We will definitely have to check it out.

    1. You will really like those awning shades, perfect addiction to your rig!

  3. Lotsa stuff at the Marketplace. You could spend half a day there and not see it all.

    1. That is so true always something there to checkout, and lots of deals to be had.

  4. We love the zip off shade. It's so easy to put on and take off. Of course, not being Canadian, not so fond of the shirt. Love the weather.

    1. These zip off shades are wonderful even though we don't have one. They have been selling a lot of those shirts here, with all The Canadians that find refuge here for the winter.

  5. the t-shirt!
    Paul bought a sunshade this summer. We love it!
    Happy New Year.

    1. Thank you U thought is made sense to me. These sunshades are so easy to use, We can use the one we have for now easy to use as well. Got it before we knew about these ones.

  6. The Marketplace is one of my favorites. I always find stuff I need there, whether I need it or not!!

    Peanut butter on your hotdog? How in the world did you come up with that? I think I'll pass.

    1. It is a great market place for sure.
      I had customers in my restaurant that requested it so I gave it a shot and really enjoy peanut butter on my hotdogs.

  7. Sounds like a fun day! Glad you are having some nice sunny and warm weather. It is always nice meeting up with blog readers and those look like some yummy date rolls that they brought along with them.

    1. Blog readers are always fun to meet and we have met a few , just like you guys.
      The date rolls are very yummy! It was a pleasant surprise.

  8. Thank you so much for your hospitality and allowing us to crash your happy hour! We had a fantastic afternoon visiting with all of you!!
    Peggy and Frank

    1. It really was fun meeting you and glad that you had a great time. You can crash our Happy hour anytime no problem. Thanks for the hats and date rolls, so very much enjoying them.

  9. That is a great shirt but will you be allowed to wear it back in Canada? At least the six bucks it cost will go a long way in stimulating the U.S. economy! ;c)

  10. Allowed or not I will wear it. We do spent quite a bit here for the economy for the 6 months we are here, every little bit helps.

  11. If we were there we would buy one of those sunshades!! They look very nice!!
    The Market Place sure looks interesting....lots to see and buy like a cool shirt!!

    1. It is a awesome marketplace one of our favourites, The sunshades are wonderful.

  12. As they say, sleeves are for sissies. Happy New Year!

    1. Happy New year, I don't wear sleeves when it gets too hot out, old I am a sissy, lol....


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
