On Wednesday, Sept. 6th, hump day, Bill was up and off to work at 6:30, with Black Beauty. I was up and off to work at 6:45, arriving at the Mat a couple of minutes before 7. It was quiet in there until one regular arrived when I was half way through. A nice gentleman but I’ve only seen him a handful of times. I had stripped the bed sheets and duvet cover so put them into two machines. When they were done and when I was done, I loaded them into the basket damp to hang at home.

Coming home Baptist Church Road
is even prettier with some leaves changing colour
A stop at Foodland, before it got busy and too hot, to get Bill his bread and a bottle of ketchup. The Compliments brand was $3 cheaper but I can’t bring myself to buy it – Bill would shoot me! Ha ha, not really, but Heinz is the only ketchup for us. 😊 Some things, we can live with the ‘other’ brands but others just have to be the ‘best’. It’s true and we’ve earned the right to choose, haven’t we?! Yes!
Ptooties up into the shade nice and snug to the Montana as that sun was
barreling down like gangbusters already at 8:30. Bill had bumped the a/c down
to a temperature where it would kick in first thing, it was already warm in
here. It remained on for the better part of the day. I made my coffee and left
the Suite for M’s at a few minutes before 10.
Second trip to town with M
His Lincoln is almost ready to go
but we both liked this classic Mercedes. Purty!
We did a town run and then some of his personal business stuff back at the shop that he needed help with and called it a ‘shift’ after 2 hours. Too hot to work on a vehicle. Tommy, the 1929 that I’ve (we’ve) been working on is gone. Wes’s family had a meeting and decided they could not afford to have us finish it. ☹ I’m very sad because I so wanted to see it painted BUT at the same time, this is their call, I’m sure it wasn’t easy.
I’m glad it will now be stored indoors. Hopefully Wes will bounce back and be able to make his own decisions again soon. For the rest of the afternoon, until Bill returned home at an earlier 4:30, I read my book with Gibbs. We did go for a walk to check mail around 3:30 but both of us were almost running up the steps to get back to where it was cool. Aaaah!
The sky darkened, winds picked up and the rains came before Bill got home. I brought his flag down because of the wind and Gibbs and I stayed inside listening to the thunder and watching the lightning flashes. Safe. 😊 We had chicken nuggets fried potatoes and corn on the cob for supper, no dessert required. Bill went to the Hangar and after posting this, I’ll finish my book. We are both off work tomorrow, yay! so I’ll finish with the last bag of apples.
This has been a good day, no complaints. After the rain, we opened windows, it dropped from a stifling, humid 31C/88F to a comfortable, refreshing 20C/68F. Nice sleeping tonight.
