On Wednesday, Nov. 3rd we woke up around 6:30 as per our usual, regardless of any work schedule. Goodness! Maybe, if we’d known what the day would bring, we’d have stayed in bed. Once we got over the second shock of the week with the snow, Bill cleaned Black Beauty off. 4 ½” of new white stuff! Yah yah, say it’s pretty but we really didn’t need to see this covering everything.

We drove to town to stop at RBC to get some cash changed into US funds. I needed some cash too because of my hair appointment. We returned home but, on the way, Bill commented that our ‘check engine light’ was on. Oh-oh, that can’t be good. ☹ He dropped me at the Suite and so he drove back to Grey Bruce Fleet to have Jeff put the diagnostic on her. After he left, I took Ptooties down the road to Northline Repair where Bonnie has her in-home hair salon.

I could still type this way and he really isn't as squished as he looks
Today, I was getting a perm! That was my final decision and I was quite excited about the change. Bonnie was ready for me with a client just leaving when I arrived. We hit it off well and didn’t stop talking the whole hour and a half that I was in the salon. The best part is that I walked out looking totally different and loving the full result. 😊 With my fine hair, I never know how hair maintenance/treatment will turn out.

was a wonderland
I found Bill down at the Hangar with Black Beauty when I returned and when I did a rotation in front of him, I got a “Wow! Sexy!” so that was even more than the response I was hoping for. Bill gave me the word from Jeff with a new problem on the truck. 6

the last of my blonde
He knows of our plan to leave on Saturday so has promised to order the required part tonight, keep the truck for a couple of days and fix it by Friday sometime. LOL I guess things have been going too smoothly for us and that just couldn’t be allowed. ☹ There are worse things, of course, we understand all that.
|the drive to Murray's|
Bill has already called the insurance company to remove the coverage as of today on Ptooties so we have to take her to storage. We had some tomato soup for lunch and then called Pat to inform her of the change of plans. This afternoon we were set up to visit them for Happy Hour at their place. We wouldn’t have a vehicle after someone from the shop brought us home. It all worked out in the end, we were dropped at our buddies’ where we still had a wonderful 3 hour visit with them.
Laughs are always part of our time together and today was no exception. Gibbs was entertaining enough but within this foursome, there is never a lull as we share good (great) memories and discussed our plans for the winter. We left around 5 with hugs all around. I can’t help but wish they were coming with us. How did we leave? Well, sometimes little elves look out for each other, and these elves are looking after us for the next few days so we can carry on with our last few errands. ♥
|Murray had some creative hands to decorate|
Because of the delicious spread of food that they put out for us, we didn’t need much for supper at all. That made it easy and we just had snacks at home and a piece of cheesecake. This was surely a mixed-up day.
|Bye buddies ♥|
Some good things, my hair for one, the visit for two, and also some upsetting things. Not much we can do when the Jello jiggles but hope for it all to work in appropriate timing. Gibbs was quite good for the most part of the afternoon and slept as soon as we returned home. 😊
|The sun sets|
Thank you for stopping in today. PS, the snow is disappearing slowly which is good since we may be getting more overnight. Blimey!
