    A wake? I love it! rotfl.gif

    Sorry your friends delivery went so poorly. Touch wood, ours have gone very smoothly to date. Just as well as I would be beside myself if I had to drive 2 hours to wait for a no show.

    We are down to the short strokes except that it still looks like a lot to me. In 48 hours the truck will be here and I suspect that we will be in manic mode until then. I am being very clever and loading up my van early Saturday with all of the food in the freezer and fridge - also the beer for the guys. I am going to bolt just before the truck arrives. Six guys loading with at least two of them the 'in charge' types is going to mean a lot of testosterone in the air. I can avoid that. icon_smile.gif

    The dogs are going in the kennel tomorrow morning until Sunday. Dawson will love it as it is a cage free place and he gets to play with lots of other dogs. He gets so excited he never even glances up when we leave him. Madison on the other hand will be body slamming the chain link and screaming as I walk away. It is always heart wrenching. icon_sad.gif

    I won't have internet from late tomorrow until late Monday or early Tuesday so I will wish you all a fabulous weekend now. It's going to be a 'feels like' of 35C (99F sounds hotter) - nice weather for a move and the AC in the van has crapped out.

    See you next week once I'm in my new digs icon_cool.gif

    Good luck with the move K9! Will you be teary-eyed when you leave the old place? I would be, but I am a bit of a suck that way.

    DH and I are helping my friend move on Saturday and of course it is supposed to be rainy. Hopefully it goes smoothly.

    It'll be quiet around here until you are back on line, we will miss your posts!
    Have a great weekend and much happiness to you both in the new digs!

    I'm pretty sure I will have a 'moment'. icon_smile.gif

    I've been here 25 years and when I first got here I was a mess with my husband dying - life was totally upside down.
    This place was first a sanctuary and then a home for me and my dogs. The stories this place could tell icon_wink.gif The last 10 years have included Don and his dog and now we are moving forward in to a house we selected together.

    It is all very positive but I'm sure I will ask him to wait in the car for a minute or two when we are leaving so I can say goodbye and have a little cry.

    It is sooooo quiet in here the last few days. I assume you are all staying cool in the pool! I was in our pool three times today and that is because the temperature of the water was 82F. I'm one of those sucky people who like the pool to be warm. Truthfully though, it was almost too warm even for me.

    I cut the grass early this morning (before 10am) and I was sweating buckets! I often wonder how people who work outside can stand this kind of weather especially roofers and the road construction crews....whew.

    I have been absent as my Mom passed away last week. I did not have time to run in here to let anyone know as her service and internment was in Hastings, 3 1/2 hrs away and as an only child the whole thing was left to me to plan. My Mom had been ill for a long time, living in a nursing home so although not expected at this time it was something we knew would come about some day.
    I am back at home, back to work and feeling still out of sorts. I guess time is what I need. Looking forward to the long weekend coming up as I have 4 days off. My son's grade 8 graduation is tomorrow night so looking forward to that. He is a wonderful young man that I am very proud of. So hard to believe he has grown so much.

    I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    Your son's graduation will be a proud moment and bring some happiness back to you all. Congratulations to him!

    K9 where are you? I saw your post in another thread that you had the "move from hell". Sorry to hear that, do you care to share your story or would you rather forget the whole thing?

    I had the nicest day yesterday. My brother, mother and I went to Aberfoyle to see the Antique Market. We had a blast! I could not believe how big this place was and the number of vendors! We walked, and walked for hours and it was such fun. The absolute weirdest thing I saw was a vendor who had two coffins from the early 1900's icon_eek.gif One was made of wicker and the other was a small child's casket which was ivory, painted with flowers, and there was a little section at the top that could be pivoted so you could see the face of the deceased thru the closed casket. That disturbed me just a tad! If you have never been there and enjoy antique shopping, you have to go!

    Lastnight my hubby and I went out in the boat and we went to Pier 8 in Burlington to see the "tall ships". That was really neat too.

    Happy Canada Day everyone!

    Yes it was the move from hell. I don't like a lot of clutter so our bungalow wasn't cluttered. Almost everyone involved took a look and said it could be done with a 28' truck. We also had a huge pick up truck and my van for cargo.

    Everyone underestimated the basement - it was triple stacked from 25 years of stuff. We were closet hoarders it seems. icon_redface.gif
    It took two days with all three vehicles on both days - we got the last box in around 5pm Sunday and then I fed the crew. The distance makes 2 trips in one day difficult. That said, as I am unpacking I am filling boxes of 'things' to donate. It was absurd.

    On June 12th we made arrangements with Bell to move the TV and the internet service to the new location to take effect on the 24th. Two separate techs were coming and we had a confirmation email. That was set for Monday and the TV guy was done around noon. By 3pm there was no sign of the internet guy so I called Bell. Two separate phone calls taking a total of 4 1/2 hours and speaking to 11 people, mostly repeating the same info as we were transferred from pillar to post. The kicker is that at the 4 1/2 hour mark I was told that they do not service the area.

    They didn't know this on the 12th? No one thought to call once the work order was picked and they realized it could not be fulfilled? I was displeased. icon_evil.gif

    The provider for the area was able to come Thursday and thus far I am very happy with them.

    At the end of the day I will say that I am never moving again.
    Mind you, it was totally worth it. I love living here. icon_cool.gif

    Well hopefully all is settling down now Leslie and the task of unpacking isn't too too bad. You have the rest of the summer to slowly work your way through them as you relax and enjoy the slower life of a small town.

    Hope everyone had a great Canada day weekend. Instead of fireworks for us last night, Jordan had a regularly scheduled baseball game, go figure. We then headed off to our new local CC Swirls, a frozen yogurt bar, which may become my favourite place this summer icon_wink.gif

    Tiggrr - My DD and I went the CC Swirls here a couple of weeks ago. Ours is decorated really cute, I was impressed. There was a birthday party going on and all the little kids were choosing their toppings with eyes as big as saucers! I thought it was a different idea for a kid's party. Expensive though, by the time you weigh it and pay by the ounce. YIKES! Abbey's little dish was about three quarters full and it cost me over $8. She loved it though!

    K9 - Well that sure stinks! I told you the fun I had waiting for the gas man who showed up over 4 hours late to my friend's house....what's with these service people? Geez! Apparently none of them has ever moved and understands what it is like! icon_rolleyes.gif

    I forgot to mention to y'all that my son graduated from high school last Thursday. I had a bit of a melt down when the grads walked into the auditorium with their caps and gowns on....waaah! How did he grow up so darn fast? The Valedictorian lead the pack carrying a torch which he then used to light candles on stage. I thought that was neat!

    Wow, he looks like you! What a nice looking young man!

    I'll try to post a pick too but for some reason I was unable to even email copies to family the other day. My email would show the photo attached and then when I hit "send" the photos would disappear and it would say "unable to load". If you have any idea what my problem is, could you let me know. I am computer challenged. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I posted something similar in CC but as some of you don't go there.....

    What ar you up to this weekend. Any projects on the go? Places to see?

    At Casa K9 the unpacked boxes can stay unpacked while we take some time to explore our new 'hood'. There is an Amish Farmers Market nearby and I'm told to get there before 10am. That may not happen this weekend. icon_smile.gif

    There are also a number of places listed under Agri-Tourism for the area.
    Over the next couple of months I want to visit them all! I'd like to pick at least one from the list and check it out.

    Tomorrow there is an annual Biker event for charity. It is expected that about 1,000 bikers will visit Port Burwell - a small village of 1,000 people right on Lake Erie. This will double the population of the village and it is also an excellent opportunity for local vendors. There will be live music on the beach. icon_cool.gif
    We definitely want to check it out but first we will get to watch the show. The road that they will be traveling down is only a couple of hundred metres from our house and clearly visible. The neighbours tell me that it is quite a sight to see as hundreds of bikes roar past. I worked in the Motorcycle industry years ago - I like bikes. icon_smile.gif

    So, what's up?
