This past Saturday one of the Garage Sales I had attended in Wiarton was located in part of a barn. How could anyone not notice the Village and Train also located within the barn walls???? Of course I had to inquire .... upon doing so, I was told by the owner, a Mr. Don McCallum of Wiarton, to contact him by phone to set something up, as I had mentioned our Grandson was visiting this week. I did so call him with the "surprise for Aiden" being arranged after yesterday's Vacation Bible School had ended this day.
Many thanks to Mr. McCallum from Aiden, Rob and myself. We look forward to visiting again sometime.
Back I go to this day at hand .... my morning began with the first blooms of this Year.
This day consisted of much running the roads again for me. Once the usual morning duties were finished, it was off to drop Aiden to VBS, then around to drop off a jar of my Homemade Beets as thanks to Mr. McCallum, to coming back home to get a load of Aiden's clothes hung on the line. By this time my niece and her friend, Russ, had arrived to go along on the trip into Owen Sound with me.
Owen Sound was a trip into the Mall, a grocery store, then off to an Auto Body Shop for an estimate on my Van from when it got backed into on Sunday.
Finally we made it back to the house around the lunch hour. Jo and Russ headed on home to her house, while I made some "Crabby Cabbie" business calls before Rob and I made a trip down to Port Elgin. Run, run, run ... I am pretty sure the total of time I spent at home today between the hours of 8:30 am and 5:00 pm was less then a hour.
The highlight of my day was going in to the Saugeen Township Building on some "Crabby Cabbie" business with me inquiring about a person working there who I had gone to Grade School with. Sure enough she was there, as one of the other staff had told her someone was out front to see her ..... as she came walking towards me from a distance she called my name ! OMG ... my friend, Rhonda and I hadn't seen each other in at least 40 Years !!! It was like we had been caught in a Time Warp as we chatted as there had been no time whatsoever having lapsed between us. YAY !!! I am so happy we have "hooked up" after all these years. We are going to get together for lunch next week ..... I can't wait.
Back home thinking about Supper ... I had taken a pound of hamburger out. Rob loves Hamburger Helper, which I hate ... however I love Pasta. I compromised....
