I was not too bad once I got going. Did my usual first thing in the morning chores before I headed downtown Wiarton. I was putting in a bit of time while waiting for my sister-in-law, Delores, to call. They were coming up to Sauble Beach for a funeral as her husband, Darols brother, Garwood Hammel of Wiarton had passed away. I was meeting them there to also pay my respects.
I did get the call from Delores, and headed on over to the Whitcroft Funeral Home for the visitation. After paying my respects to the family, having a wee visit with our Nephew Jody and his wife, Lauren, and their children, and a bit with Delores and a hug to Darol, I made my way back home.
Driving home it hit me like a brick. My muscles started pulsating and feeling heavy, as did my whole body did. I got home where I attended to all the Aussie, then hit the couch to lay my head back to see if my muscles would settle down. Finally after a couple of hours the pain withdrew to a dull roar from the heights it had been at.
By this time Rob was heading home.
The phone rang at 4 pm. It was Delores, someone wanted to speak to me. Ha ! the voice on the other end of the phone was Robs oldest brother, Wayne. Him and his wife, Marjorie, had come up also to pay their respects. Wayne wanted to know if we would like them to drop around. Of course I did, as in the 10 years we have been here it was the first visit from them.
Rob arrived home shortly after I had gotten Waynes call. We headed downtown to grab some burgers, as I really had nothing otherwise as quick to serve them up some Dinner before they headed back home to Elmira.
We had a nice little visit, as well as a dinner of burgers, coleslaw and a relish tray of homemade pickles. They enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed having them.
When they were here, Rob called us out onto the deck where he was barbecuing the burgers to say the Crane was back today.
With Wayne and Marjorie heading South on their way back home, Rob and I sat on the front stoop together for awhile watching our youngest Australian Shepherd Female, Mercedes, run around having fun for a bit.
Rob has now left himself down the highway South with his Crabby Cabbie hat firmly set upon his head, while I stayed here behind to let the rest of the Aussies out and about for the last time this evening.
The wind got up and dark clouds rolled in with the Sun still in the West we had a Sun Shower. Maybe there will be more rain later in the evening, but it was not serious enough that my laundry I brought off the line had still been dry.
YIKES ! I almost forgot ....

I am going to put my feet up, relax and call it a night in another hour or so here. I have only two more sleeps before my trip when my friend, Toni with an i, and I fly down East. I am getting pretty excited here, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
