Gone Gone Gone Is This Day

Holy Moly it seems like we were gone gone gone the whole day long.  We just arrived back home sometime after 6 pm ?

My day started out pretty good, although the dampness was taking its toll on my body I still kept moving.  I had all the Aussies looked after first thing, a shower, a load of laundry in and some Crabby Cabbie paperwork going.

My poor Crabby Cabbie had a very late night, or should I say "early morning" having not arrived home until almost the crack of dawn.  Again he was up and out the door coming to a man's rescue who called and was stranded in Owen Sound where he had stopped his vehicle off for servicing, and his friend had not shown up to collect him.  No phone book at hand, and no answer at the one Owen Sound Cab Company number I had given him when he had called.  Yes he was thankful Rob went out to collect him and deliver him to his home in Sauble Beach.  I have a good man with a big heart most days when he is not too tired otherwise to have one.

I was waiting for Rob to arrive back home as we were meeting up with our Driver in Southampton early afternoon, when the phone rang.  It was a friend who was in town at her daughter's whom wanted to drop something around to me?  Really what could Alice be coming all the way from Shelburne way to visit with her family and think to have something for me?

Here is dear thoughtful Alice with a tray of goodies in hand that she had made, with a tray in mind for me and my Rob.  You can well imagine my surprise !  Alice thought I was deserving of a treat or two for all I do in supporting my Community.  I am truly honored.  Thank you, Alice, I have consumed 2 of the marshmallow and one of the shortbread this day and ....  "Let Me Tell the World", oh so good !

Rob had pulled in shortly after Alice had arrived.  I was sorry we were not able to have much of a visit, but hopefully there will be another time.

Off we headed to Southampton where our first stop was where I got to meet Summer.

Please meet Summer.  She is a 11 year old Great Dane, one of 5 Great Danes her family has had over the years.  It is most unusual for a Great Dane to live much past 8 years, never mind 11 !  Truly she is very lovely.  One of the groups I belong to on Facebook had not long ago posted a Live Cam to an organization who trains Danes as Service Dogs.  Some might enjoy watching it by *clicking* HERE.

Rob and I then headed down to the Bulk Barn to pickup some Candy Canes to be handed out at Wiarton's upcoming Santa Claus Parade on the 7th of December.  Details can be found HERE.  Then we headed out to meet our Driver, Ron, which we did, thereafter getting a call to go on a run to Owen Sound.

By the time we had arrived back in Wiarton it was late afternoon with us both being starved (or thinking we were starving).  A quick stop into Foodland solved the problem, and good thing as we got home to find our hydro was out !

Today I also was using my Crabby Cabbie Business Card holder to hand out a few cards (Sharon I LOVE my Business Card holder), while we were purchasing our "store bought" meal of Deli Chicken and salads.  

We had barely gotten settled in after eating when Rob was called back out again.  My poor Crabby Cabbie is truly "over tired" more then anything else, with most of knowing what a not nice feeling that can be.

Spelling, Grammar ... so sorry, just too tired.

I am tired, my Crabby Cabbie Rob is tired, and you got to know that can't always be a good combination, so I sit in my corner and he sits in his, all peaceful and quiet (Smile) with bedtime not too far from either of our minds, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".


  1. I love great Danes (I love all animals!)...and Summer is a beauty!

  2. What a delicious variety of goodies! You surely deserve them :)

  3. Danes are really such magnificent dogs.

    And those treats look scrumptious!

  4. Lovely Great Dane . Yummy home made treats ! Hope you two get a good nights sleep after your busy weekend ! Thanks for sharing . Have a good week !

  5. My dear sister was just telling me about the Harlequin (Black and White) GD who lives in her building and what a lovely dog she is. There is also a Bull Mastiff there, the size of a small pony, LOL, but also a lovely doggie.
    This damp weather is really kicking us isn't it?
    We had another good dump of heavy, wet snow overnight and this morning, but fortunately we didn't lose our power this time. I better watch what I say, it might still get knocked out overnight.
    I don't know how you and Rob keep the "schedule" you do!

  6. Take care Cindy I do not know how you both do it. Hug B

  7. What a beuatiful tray of goodies, I could get use to sweet surprises like that!! You and Rob sound like hubby and I. Sometimes just sitting in a room alone is the best we can do with all the work and travel his job requires.


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
