On Friday, Mar. 19th Bill and I were both up around 5:30. The sooner we got going, the sooner we would be back with our home. We ate some breakfast, packed a few snacks and drinks and left the house by 6:30. It Was a beautiful day for a drive, cold at -8C/20F or so but the sky was clear and, on the drive, I was able to see the sun rise.
It was 9:04 exactly when we pulled into a spot at CanAm on the west end of London. The traffic was expectedly busy, especially on the 401, well, it was a work day for many.

We had picked up some tulips and wine for Peggy, as a thank you. In our humble opinion, she went over and above for us. Not only this week, getting the Diamond Kote (?) on the Suite and having it pulled out front for us on short notice, but every time we've called to ask for help on the Suite. 💛
|When we arrived, there our home was waiting for us|
She, our home, was sitting in the front lot waiting for us. 😊 We did a walk through with Todd of the things he did inside and outside the Suite. The new floor is awesome and blends nicely with everything else. Four thumbs up! We closed her up and drove to Costco for our few groceries. Really, we did better than we’ve ever done, coming out with a bill less than $150! Our $52 credit voucher helped too. With those fridge stuff loaded into our travel cooler, we headed back to CanAm.
Bill hooked up easily while I stayed in the truck. He hadn’t done that for a while so I wanted to stay out of his way while he went through the routine. That’s how mistakes happen, he didn’t need me out there nattering. And no, he didn’t say that at all, I did. Ha ha. One last trip inside to say goodbye and thank you to Peggy and I used the facilities before the drive home. On the way out of London, we stopped at Denny’s for lunch.
We weren’t overly impressed with the meal but mine was because I ordered soft eggs on a poached benedict. I should have ordered medium but other than that, I didn’t have to cook it and it tasted okay. Bill’s toasted clubhouse was pretty dark so he didn’t enjoy his so much either. ☹ Bummer. But, we were full and the food was at least nutritious. Bill had fueled up at the Flying M so we hauled butt for home.

🐦 This was in the CanAm lot
It was a nice drive, listening to country tunes, guessing the artists, and chatting through our excitement to keep each other awake. I had a weird night, awake every couple of hours and I can only put that down to how much I was looking forward to today’s adventure. We pulled into the Ridge at 3:05 which was 2 ½ hours from leaving London so we made great time. The snow was almost completely gone from the lane and we drove through it easily.
|Now, we're truly ready to head for home|
out of the Denny's lot
Bill didn’t stop, just made his circle around and put the Suite on our ‘site’. It took a couple or three back and forth jaunts just to get the wheels placed on the boards and at 3:30, she was sitting pretty with slides open. There was no wind up there, which totally surprised me, and we set to work straightening a few things and unloading the groceries that we could leave there.
The Bunky is so full right now as is the storage shed so we need to decide what to bring tomorrow. First thing, is to bring our cleaning stuff so I can wash cupboards and dust the woodwork before putting things away and then unload a few boxes that we’ll pack in the morning. The weather is on our side this weekend for sure and soon we’ll be in place, crawling into our own bed. 😊
Our supper tonight was not healthy, with potato chips and cheddar, except for the cheese, as neither of us was hungry for a meal after our lunch. It sufficed. The evening was quiet and we plan on retiring fairly early. I hope your day was at least half as good as ours!
Thank you for popping in!
