A few days ago I wrote about a few memory difficulties for both Kelly and I referring to us as Swiss Cheesers. (now just to be clear here I am the one with the more severe Swiss Cheese brain) Today it happened again to both of us although two different situations at two different places about the same time of day. Forgetting to make a coffee for myself Pheebs and I headed off to Goderich so grabbed a coffee at McDonalds to go. A short while later we go for a walk east of Goderich and I take my coffee with me. Finishing it and instead of folding it up into my pocket as I usually do I set the empty cup on the ground beside a fence post meaning to pick it up on our way back to the Jeep. The coffee cup has a sticker on it which Kelly collects and after a certain number of coffee stickers she gets a free one. Well of course you already know I forgot to pick up the cup. Now about the same time as Pheebs and I were out walking Kelly was also in Goderich browsing around her stores of which one was the Thrift Store. Also with a stop at McDonalds for a coffee to go she stops at the third of three Thrift Stores. Inside looking at some things she sets her coffee on a shelf and purchases some kitchenware. With her stuff in hand she heads back out to the car and remembers the coffee she left inside. Back in she goes but doesn't see the coffee on the shelf where she 'thought' she left it. A lady store clerk helps Kelly look for the coffee but it's gone. It was important to find that coffee because it had a free coffee sticker on it. Finally giving upKelly goes back out to her car...….and there's her coffee right where she had left it in the first place. The coffee had not even made it into the store. Yes we're getting to be quite the two Swiss Cheesers alright. Oh and I do plan to go back for that coffee cup with the sticker on it I left alongside the trail earlier today............if I can remember to do that of course. Well no problem. Due to the big threat hanging over my head right now about retrieving that 'coffee cup sticker' I will be sure not to forget it if I know what's good for me!!!!
|REWASHED PART OF THE MOTORHOME THIS AFTERNOON|
|PICKED UP SOME GAS IN CLINTON TODAY|
It's sometimes amazing what a little sunshine and warmer air can do for a fella sometimes. When Pheebs and I got home we hopped into the Motorhome and headed over to Clinton and back. Had installed the dining room table backwards a couple weeks ago so today I rectified that problem. Hauled out the hose along with a bucket of water and washed the bottom half of the Motorhome plus wheels again. Also cleaned all the outside glass.
