      A cooler nights sleep but we both slept very well. Up at 6 am and put a pot of coffee on while I enjoyed my oatmeal. Then just before 7 am a small tap on the door. yup I figured Rob was here for some fresh brewed coffee. We always enjoy our morning coffees and chats with him when we are together. He headed back home shortly after 8 am. We puttered around a bit more computing just before 9 am then we headed to the Pinery Market in Grand Bend  today is their 3rd annual Bark-toberfest if you like dogs and Beer this is the day to go.
     And there was lots of dogs of all breeds and sizes all on leases and very well behaved, what a fun time enjoying all these dogs together seeming to enjoy this fun friendly day. I took way to many pictures and narrowed it down to still too many. But we had a very enjoyable morning.
     Ran into Ron and Loree there (they did not bring Freddie) met the people along with them and carried on checking our all the dogs.
this be the place

     Lots of dogs everywhere.
then of course some pepperettes for me and friends
       Now to check out the craft breweries , They can't serve until 11 am and was only 10;30 we had to purchase coupons minimum $20.00 for 14 samples. Hmm I only wanted to try one or 2 not $20.00 worth so we passed,

On our way out grabbed 2 more of these wonderful light Pizzas

     We left here before 11 am getting busier, so time to go, Stopped at Juicy Fruit Orchards on the way home to pick up some Honey Crisp Apples that we love that have just come out, oh these are too good. Got a good supply for now and to take south with us, we are allowed to take these across the border , that's a good thing.
yes it's fall, Pumpkin season
lots of fancy ones too
gotta love these
a couple of bags Honey Crisp
to tide us over for a while

       We enjoyed a light tasty lunch then a relaxing afternoon outside enjoying our pages turners, overcast , no rain and a cooler 65F with next to no wind. Just need long pants and my sweat shirt. I had just finished the boxed set of books I had been reading the LEI Crime series  4 books by Toby Neil I really enjoyed. My next Book is by Carolyn Arnold  ELEVEN FBI 01.
       At 3 pm Happy Hour at Rob and Pats, to celebrate Pauls' 70th birthday only the 7 of there today others have either left or made plans.
Tucker brought Gerry over for some treats
   We enjoy outside until about 3:30 them the rains began to come down , so inside we headed. lots room in there.

 Where have we been this Summer ?


  1. Lots of brewery comp out there today for barktoberfest. You had a nice day.

    1. Yes there is so many craft breweries around now and so many different types and flavours of beer, And seeing all the dogs was fun too.

  2. What a busy day you both had. Loved seeing all the pooches and their owners. In Texas we have to wait until noon to be able to buy beer.

    Looks like Paul had a nice birthday celebration. Why do you torture me George? I have been wanting a steak seems like forever and yours looks delicious!

    It is currently 2:23 a.m. Central Standard Time and its 83 degrees in Del Rio!

    1. It was busy and fun too, The market with all the dogs was a nice treat too.Here in Ontario 10 am during the week 11 am on sundays to by beer, I think Paul did have fun. Sorry Ms B but the steak was excellent too bad you can't have one.
      Some day it will cool down for you .

  3. Meant to say 12 noon on Sundays.

    You can purchase wine and beer in Texas Monday to Friday 7:00 a.m. to midnight. On Saturdays 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. and Sunday noon to midnight.

    Liquor has other hours but since I do not drink liquor I do not know what those might be.

    Have an early morning appointment so barely slept. It is 6:32 a.m with a temperature of 80 degrees at this hour.

    1. Your hours there are much longer that our for beer,
      You did not get much sleep good luck with your appointment .

  4. Barkfest looks like a lot of fun for sure..but yeah I don't think I need 14 tastes of beer! I'd like to walk out of there lol! Happy Birthday Paul! What a nice spread Pat put out..very sweet! Your dinner looks so yummy!!!

    1. It was a fun day we enjoyed it there, but even sharing the 14 tastes with Suzie was more that we wanted, so had to pass. It was a nice birthday celebration and lots of tasty snacks as well

  5. What a great fun day. I'd go just to see the puppies, since I'm not a beer person. Looks like some great food too. Love the cow picture!!

    1. It was a fun day aan buy it cheaper at the beer storend the puppies a real treat as well. We do enjoy beer but can buy it cheap at the beer store.

  6. The birthday celebration at Rob and Pat's Happy Hour was a nice (unexpected) surprise. Thanks for being there, George and Suzie. It's always nice to be with friends for special occasions... and other times, too.

    1. You welcome always nice to celebrate with friends when we can. And your birthday was a nice surprise as well.
      It was a busy day we enjoyed the market and all the dogs as well.

  7. Easy to get a doggie fix at Bark-tober fest! Only 7 at Happy Hour? The others missed the feast Pat put together ;)

    1. Yes lotsa doggie fixes there for sure. The other missed the feast Pat made these had other planes or had left the park.

  8. Those twisted squash sure look interesting.


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