Another superbly gorgeous Autumn day here in Southern Ontario. Busied myself raking up pine needles & puttering about the rig a bit. Coach batteries checked again. Generator & engine oils checked. Windshield washer fluid added etc. Probably will not do the final bin loading until about a week from today.
My Doctor’s appointment this afternoon went well. All prescriptions for 6 months of travel taken care of. I hadn’t expected any miracles when it came to my cholesterol levels being down but was pleasantly surprised when my ‘off the charts’ bad LDL had dropped substantially into the acceptable numbers range. In my case a miracle after years of high cholesterol levels. My Nurse Practitioner was very pleased about that. So, I will stay on Crestor.
After picking up my prescriptions at Walmart I immediately opened & popped a couple Arthrotec pills in hopes of quickly getting my legs feeling better again. Don’t know what kind of magic is in that Arthrotec medicine but it sure has helped me over the years with my stiff, achy, & sore legs.

Pheebs & I headed over to Deer Park to say good-bye to the Vancouverites about 5:30 this afternoon. Kelly was already there. Little Adara was crying because she had to say goodbye to Pheebe. Hugs all around & it may be a long time before I see Sarah, Bradley, Adara, & Gabriel again. Kelly will see them once more this Monday when she drives over to Cambridge for Thanksgiving. All of Kelly’s 5 kids will be under one roof. A rare event not to be missed for her. Pheebs & I will hold the fort here in Bayfield.
Thanks to everyone for responding about my blog’s background color. Seems everything is OK & it apparently just depends what ‘readers’ some folks use to read my posts with. FRED did confirm the ‘white background reader’ thing. I’m not familiar with those ‘reader’ programs so not exactly sure what they are or how they work. Probably just as well I don’t know. Just something else to confuse me.
PHEEBS WAS BEING A LITTLE SHY AT FIRST
A special thanks to BRADLEY SHENDE for climbing aboard our Blog Follower’s list. Nice to have met you these past few days & thanks again for the blog tweak. Take care my friend & I wish you all the best:))

Going to start monitoring the weather now west of Chicago & out across the plains of Iowa, Nebraska & Kansas. May already be too snowy in Colorado for any kind of mountain crossing through there so may dip down New Mexico way. If weather isn’t good across the Plains we may just slip down into Arkansas & pick up a few parts of our old route we used a fair bit a few years ago. We’re not in a real big hurry so we probably will not use the shortest, fastest, route through St. Louis & Oklahoma City. In the end we’ll likely just opt out for the warmest route on our roads west a week from Saturday:))
Sure has been a long summer but yet it seems to have gone fast in some ways. We didn’t get to do the traveling we had hoped to do because of medical issues etc. By next summer we should be outfitted with a solar system again & for us that will make a big difference to our style of travel. We need our freedom, our space, & our serenity:))
GROANER’S CORNER:(( An inexperienced real estate salesman asked his boss if he could refund the deposit to an angry customer who had discovered that the lot he had bought was under water.“What kind of salesman are you?” the boss scolded. “Get out there and sell him a boat.”
