Kelly's a newspaper buff but we haven't had a newspaper delivered for many years. Here at her Mother's house a morning paper is dropped in the driveway every morning & Kelly is right out there to quickly snag that paper & bring it inside for a peruse. The newspaper even takes precedence over her computer. Fancy that.
KELLY’S OLD SCHOOLYARD WHERE THEY TOBOGGANED DOWN THIS HILL AS KIDS
Nary a cloud in the sky as I watched this morning's sunrise lightly tickle the tops of tall Maple trees across the street. A mighty fine looking Saturday morning on a quiet little street in Spencerport New York. However, the clear sky soon gave way to heavy cloud & we never got out of the 50’s today. A brisk wind made it feel even colder.
I THINK THIS MUST BE THE STREET ‘LEAVE IT TO BEAVER’ LIVED ON BECAUSE IT JUST HAS THAT HOMEY FEEL TO IT
Kelly’s Mom & Dad’s property backs onto Spencerport’s elementary school property where Kelly attended school & where her Mom was the school secretary for 21 years. This mornings walk took us on the short walking route Kelly took to & from that school many years ago.
THAT’S KELLY & PHEEBS DOWN THERE ON THEIR WAY TO SCHOOL THIS MORNING
Not often I am ever in a Big Box Store like Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware, or Costco, etc. Only ever been in a Costco once & it was probably about 6 years ago. Had a few things to pick up so Kelly & I headed off to a big Lowes west of Spencerport first thing this morning. I'm always like a tourist walking around in these big places with all their interesting scenery. I stand gawking up at this & stand stooped over staring down at that. The shelves are like towering mountains with narrow canyon walkways running in straight lines between them. I see so many interesting shapes & colors on the these mountainsides with scenery changing every few steps. I suppose if I hiked these narrow cement canyon pathways frequently I would in time become somewhat oblivious of the many wonders to see. I enjoy being an in-frequent visitor here in the land of many products. Keeps me wide eyed & attentive when I do come to visit & for me that is an enjoyable experience.
At risk of sounding like an old broken record again I must say how much we are enjoying all our new space in the rig. We just kinda look at each other across the room & smile:)) I've already gone on about how smooth the rig drives so I won't repeat myself about that again. But speaking of the rig.........we came across some ZEP products at Lowes this morning & I remember a reader suggesting that for restoring the shine & sheen to the white portion of our rig which is in various stages of oxidation & looks splotchy & spotty. I remembered the stages one has to go through with the Zep method & of course figured maybe I didn't want to get into that much work. But I have been doing some thinking on that. The previous owner put a lot of time & effort into keeping this coach in top-top shape so I can at least do the same with the exterior finish. The exercise would be good for me & besides it’s been a long time since one of my arms have fallen off from so much much scrubbing & polishing. It also makes sense to me that all previous waxes & cleaners have to first be removed before starting with the final shiny & protective coatings. Did a lot of reading on the internet this morning & read a couple forums where many fellow RV'ers have used this method. Did not come across a single negative remark about the products or final results. Products are much cheaper here in the States & it might be well for us to pick up the materials we need while here. I will sleep on it overnight & make a decision on the whole cleaning & restoration process tomorrow. In fact I'm getting tired already just thinking about it........................
Finished up our day by going out for supper at a German type restaurant/brewery that I can't remember the name of. Kelly’s Mom, sisters Cathy & Becky along with husband Norm as well as brother Peter & wife Leslie. Popular place with lots of people. Lots of people means lots of people noise but the food was good. Service was slow but I guess that had to do with lots of people making lots of noise. Well I hope that’s what the excuse was……..
NORM & BECKY ALONG WITH KELLY CHECKING THE MENU
THESE FOLKS REALLY KNOW HOW TO DIG IN…NO PEANUT BUTTER SANDWICHES FOR THIS GANG
More visiting after supper & a few good-byes to a few folks we probably won’t see again for awhile. Kelly’s sister Cathy, brother Peter & wife Leslie.
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Q. Who is more satisfied, a man with a million dollars, or a man with six children?
A. The man with six children. The man with a million dollars always wants more.
A husband and wife are getting ready for bed. The wife is standing in front of a full length mirror taking a hard look at herself. "You know, dear," she says, "I look in the mirror and I see an old woman. My face is all wrinkled, every thing else is either sagging or bloated. I've got fat legs, and my arms are all flabby." She turns to her husband and says, "Tell me something positive to make me feel better about myself." He studies hard for a moment thinking about it and then says in a soft, thoughtful voice, "Well, there's nothing wrong with your eyesight."
Services for the husband will be held Saturday morning at 10:30 AM at Morris Memorial Chapel. Female friends of the family are invited.
