Back in the 'Slow Lane'

Yeah team! The last few days we spent with our friends in Ontario were at a more relaxed pace.

Wednesday Wayne and I went to a couple of 'Big Box Stores' for some supplies. He has been replacing the siding on his garage since he has retired and had three sides completed. We picked up some 1x3's, 1x4's, some glue and screws. Returning to the house we measured and cut all the pieces, for the 40' garage, then proceeded to install everything. Whew!!! We worked for a solid two hours straight. I haven't worked that hard in a long time. Just got done in time to clean up then have cocktails. Dinner was at home this evening, followed by chewin' of the fat, then we all turned in.

Thursday Wayne went to work to pick up a truck so's we could make another trip to pick up siding now that the glue had a chance to dry. He returned and we went back to the 'Big Box' for the siding. We had pre-measured and had all the siding cut to length at the store, sweet. After a bite to eat we started puttin' up the sheets o' siding. Glue, place, align & screw, only nine more sheets to go. After two & a half hours we were done, looks like I got in a half hour of OT today. I told Wayne that was going to cost him. In the evening we drove to Kichner so Wayne & Colleen could practice for an upcoming Clogging show on Sunday. Colleen has been a Clogging instructor for many years and holds classes in two cities near them.

Friday was a day of chores, getting ready for a departure on Saturday. Colleen got home from work early today and we went to out dinner at a local restaurant called Kelsie's. Kind of like an Applebee's or TGI Fridays, not bad, but not good either. After dinner we drove over to Duane & Thyra's to say "Thank You" for their hospitality and also "Goodbye" for now. Thyra will be coming to Florida this November for several weeks vacation and we will get to see her then.

Saturday we were up at the crack of 8:30, as usual, for a short travel day. Wayne had to go in to work to check some layout on a job so we had breakfast and got ready to roll. He came back as we were finishing up and started our Goodbyes. "Goodbye Wayne & Colleen, we love you both", and "Thanks again for everything".

Next stop our niece Gloria's in NY for a few days as we promised.

Hope to see ya down the road as we're,

Dancin' on the Wind.
