Yesterday morning I think everybody’s hand would be raised in my home town in Newfoundland when they woke up to this !! These are ‘real’ photos I took off the weather website.
They did have an unusually warm month of April – as my Mother would laugh at me ‘cause the temps there were warmer than I am experiencing here in Ontario.
But clearly Mother Nature had the last laugh !
Yesterday my friend Bob came to visit and took me out to lunch and we tootled around various stores in Barrie. Sure was a nice way to kill a couple of hours.
I ‘met’ Bob on one of the RV Websites – he is Canadian, travelling South for the Winter AND a fellow Rider. And sure enough, not this past Winter but the Winter before we met up in Arizona and went on a COUPLE OF GREAT RIDES. He only lives about 1/2 hour from where I am now.
You get to meet some great Folks while on the road – but in most cases you’ll likely never see them again. In this case, It was really nice re-connecting with Bob again.
After lunch we browsed around Canadian Tire; Princess Auto etc. etc. Then we went to McDonalds to take advantage of their free Wi-Fi so I could show Bob a few things regarding his Blog. Bob is embarking on a motorcycle ride to Alaska and then South America. Personally I think he’s NUTS – certainly something I could not do nor would I want to. Check out Bob’s Blog HERE.
Spoke with Jenn, The Body Shop Manager, when I got home and she said she feels my rig will be ready TOMORROW !!! OMG I can’t wait !!
I’m VERY GRATEFUL to THE HITCH HOUSE for letting me stay here onsite in one of their older rigs that they have for sale – however, I sure will be glad to get back into my own.
I’ve been sleeping on the coach and not getting a good night’s sleep at all. The bed is worse. AND poor Bennie has to sleep in his own bed at night ‘cause there just isn’t enough room on this teenie couch.
Today is supposed to get up to 15C/59F although you’d never say it if you looked outside now (9:00AM). It’s only 5C/41F, overcast and foggy. If it doesn’t rain I’ll get out on the bike for sure !!
Cross fingers that my next Blog Post will be from the comforts of my own home.
