PHEEBS LOVES CRUISING IN THE RV:))
Looking out the living room at our Winnie Wagon on a cool overcast Saturday morning a thought occurred to me. Winnie the Bago had not left her spot under the Pines since we brought her home from London a couple weeks ago. Roads had dried from an overnight rain so figured Pheebs & I had better head out & take Winnie for a little RV cruise. Kelly headed off to Deer Park Lodge to spend a couple hours working. It's our big Queen Victoria May 24th long week-end here in Canada & that means it's our unofficial start to summer. The Lodge was booked full & Kelly's help was needed. She headed over for a couple hours Friday as well & that couple hours turned into 7.
<<< OUR LILACS ARE IN BLOOM
Knew I was out of Yogurt so that was a good enough excuse to load up the little Monkey Face & roll ourselves on out of the Park for Goderich. Also wanted to stop along the road & grab a few new Winnie photos for the blog's header & sidebar. How nice to be getting a few more Ford miles under my belt. And looking at the dash I couldn't help but feel I am pleasantly morphing right into liking it more every time I see it. This rig is really growing on me. And what a treat the sound system is with the Jensen radio compared to the troublesome & poor sound quality of the Magnadyne radio in the Sunseeker. And how nice to have a touch screen I can actually see clearly while driving. It’s all in the graphics. Still do not like the touchy-touchy-feely-feely stuff with the screen but that's the way it is. This Ford Chassis has a nice solid feeling ride to it as well.
Walmart was our destination this morning & I knew the parking lot would be crowded with tourists on the long week-end. Hadn't realized they had a big car show going on out front of the Canadian Tire store but I had no problem manoeuvring the Winnie Wagon's 26 foot length through all the traffic chaos skittering about the parking lot. Not quite as agile as the Sunseeker's 23 feet but definitely much better than wheeling the Damon's 33' around in those tight spaces.
Jostled & tussled with the Walmart crowds for about 5 minutes, knocked a couple people over & exited the store with my Yogurt, a couple light bulbs, & an Oh Henry chocolate bar. In fact I think I may have even been knocked down & trampled on a couple times myself because when I arrived home later it appeared a couple of my Yogurt cups were crushed, I was missing one of my shoes, one light bulb was broken, & my baseball hat was in tatters:(( Grabbed a couple hot dogs at a vendor stand just outside the Walmart door & headed for the RV. One hot dog for me & one for the Pheebs. Mine was the one with the fried onions. Snapped a couple quick pics in the car show area & we were on our way home.
I HAD TWO OLD FORD FALCONS YEARS AGO & NEITHER ONE LOOKED AS SPIFFY AS THIS FALCON WAGON
NEVER HAD A CADILLAC BUT DID HAVE AN OLD JAGUAR ONCE…IN FACT I HAVE HAD A LOT OF OLD CLUNKERS & SOME NICE ONE'S TOO
NEVER DID HAVE A MUSTANG BUT THE DASH BELOW SURE REMINDS ME OF AN OLD 55 FORD I HAD ONCE
I’VE HAD 6 PICK UP TRUCKS BUT NEVER AN OLD ONE LIKE THIS
All & all not too bad a day despite the gloomy weather. Pheebs was happy to get out for a ride in the RV & I was happy to get out & drive the RV. And I'm sure Winnie the Bago was just as happy getting out & being driven somewhere as well. After all, that is what she was designed to do……..:))
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Taxiing down the tarmac, the jetliner abruptly stopped, turned around and returned to the gate. After a hour-long wait, it finally took off. A concerned passenger asked the flight attendant: “What was the problem?”
“The pilot was bothered by a noise he heard in the engine,” explained the flight attendant,” and it took us a while to find a new pilot.”
