TODAY WE MET FELLOW RV’ERS RICHARD AND KATHY ROUSSEAU
A beautiful Autumn day. We slipped down to Mitchell, loaded up Uncle Harry in his wheel chair and headed on out the door and down the street to the Dentist. It’s a short half block walk along some sidewalks, across a highway and through a parking lot to reach the dentist and all went well. Harry enjoyed the ride. Tomorrow morning we do it all over again because the Dentist, while cleaning Harry’s teeth found a cavity (don’t they always) and said for us make another appointment. Hard enough on Harry today getting him out of his wheel chair into a dentist chair and now he has to do it all over again Tuesday morning for another short half hour appointment.
KELLY AND UNCLE HARRY CHECK OUT THE SPORTS PAGE AT THE DENTIST THIS MORNING
Took the Motor Home in to STORMRUNNER RV SALES AND SERVICE when we got back to have some caulking done on the roof. No sign of Dianne or Harry but I’m sure they will call us when it’s done. Home again and soon as I sat down for a minute in my big chair I was out like a light for a couple hours. Seems my world is slowly tipping over for whatever reason with me sleeping more during the day and less at night. Maybe I should just get myself a night job sweeping floors at Wal-Mart and be done with it!!
TWO LITTLE BUMS ON AN OLD COUCH
Late this afternoon we met a couple fellow RV’ers for supper at THE DOCKS in Bayfield . Richard and Kathy Rousseau live in Tecumseh near Windsor Ontario and haul a big new 38’ Avalanche fifth wheel. They have been reading my blog for awhile and had emailed a few months ago saying they would be passing through our area and wanted to get together, say Hello and buy us supper. Thought that was pretty darn nice of them.
Fresh from the rain soaked Ohio Gypsy Journal rally south of the border they were sure glad to see todays sunshine. They had also been to the RV Dreams rally. Their rig was parked at THE OLD HOMESTEAD RV Park not far from us and they invited us back to their unit. Beautiful 5th wheel complete with a very clever outside kitchen tucked away in the bedroom slide. Richard is one of those ‘jack of all trades’ kind of guy and has already made many great renovations and improvements to their rig. Some guys just got all the smarts!!
As is typical with all RV folks we have ever met, Richard and Kathy were very friendly and easy going folks. Eager to share ideas, stories and travel adventures. RV’ers have a special bond and whenever together there are no strangers. I have a feeling once they return home and become settled, they just might turn their sights towards the blogging world:))
