Lilyfield in Paisley (I finally got caught up with our location!)
On Thursday, Oct. 22nd Bill didn’t have to report to his work. He had decided to take it off anyway but a text first thing indicated that the crew wasn’t working because of the rain. That way, he didn’t feel so bad for skipping off. 😊 I was on the job though this morning so we left the house at 7:50 in Black Beauty and Bill dropped me at Mitch’s before 9.
He carried on and drove to the Ridge. There were a few things that needed to be taken care of so he was busy for the two hours I was in the shop. I ‘puttyed’ and sanded, and then did it all over again. I’d told Mitch I could only work 2 hours today as I had an appointment in Owen Sound with the BMO bank’s financial advisor. I needed to get things in motion regarding Mom’s accounts.

The words say
"Paisley, where friends and rivers meet"
Two rivers (Teeswater and Saugeen meet here)
So, when Bill picked me up at 11, he had drained the Suite of all water, dumped tanks and picked up the DEF from the Hangar for storage here at the house. We stepped inside long enough to change into clean clothes and then pulled slides in and closer her up. 😢😢

Hey Jamie! We're slipping back in Durham!
We cleaned the Mat for an hour before leaving Durham at 1:30. It meant another stop for a fast food lunch at 1 but I’m not feeling too bad about it these days. Yes, another Cheddar Bacon Uncle Burger each. Things will settle down and we’ll get back on track eventually.
The bank appointment took an hour but part of meeting up with Shannon is personal catch up time. We really like her and share our individual updates with each other. I’ll miss our chats when we no longer need to deal with the Bank of Montreal. Bill is so patient while I do what I need to do.
|And here it is from across the street|
We left Owen Sound at 3 and headed home. There is a site along #6 highway called 6 & 6 where online auction pieces are assembled. Bill was interested in looking at a couple of things so we stopped for a quick walk through.
There are two bridges in town, one is being restructured The library, you know I'll make an appearance in there Beside the library is the only remaining building of the original business section
1 1/2 story framed shop
Fitting that now it is an Antique Shoppe

There was nothing that we needed so forged on home. It was a mildish but damp day and by the time we got home around 5, we were worn out. I did some more research online with my Executor’s cap on and then we went down to start supper. Wes and Susan went out for some errands and we were alone for a couple of hours or so. Leftover meatloaf, squash and mixed veggies was supper and it was cleaned up by 6:30.
|This is the Museum but sadly it is closed due to Covid-19|
Hopefully, it will open during the winter
The night was getting late and sitting at my laptop looking things up, at 8 o’clock I remembered that I was going to have my shower. A busy day and another early start tomorrow will prevent me from doing so. I’d accomplished a few things on the laptop, jotting down phone numbers and filling out forms to send off with death certificates so that was good. It has been a fulfilling day for sure.
|I didn't even know these big boys were real until one stood up|
The reflections were everywhere so this is the best I could do
They were quite content just watching
And on that note: Good night!
Thank you for stopping in!
