New shocks

I have ordered new front shocks for Sherman! I'm pretty sure that the front shocks on our motorhome are the original ones from 1995, and now have 66,000 miles on them. Now, that number of miles is still pretty low for a 1995, but when you've driven on Mexican highways you can probably double that!

Anyhow, I've ordered Bilstein HD shocks at a cost of $93 each and hopefully they'll show up by Friday so that I can have them installed during our trip out to Cape Breton Island.

Out and about

Well this past weekend I have been out and about visiting.

On Saturday, I went out to breakfast with two school friends that I have known since Grade 1.  That was so long ago, but we always manage to get together at least once a year.  It was nice to get see them and catch up on all the news.

I was looking through our pictures over the years, trying to figure out when the last time was that Ruth and I were apart for a full two weeks. Ruth will probably pipe in and answer that question real quick, and I can't recall offhand but I have a feeling it was quite a long time ago.

Everybody loves a parade

I stopped in town this morning to pick up some clips that I needed in order to put Sherman's dash back together. After that, I was on the way to Lindsey and Justin's because we were going to the 79th Annual Apple Blossom Parade.

Guess what?

It's been raining again.   I know, I know everyone is tired about everyone's post complaining about the weather. I guess we are lucky, considering we just have to deal with wet weather while others are dealing with floods and tornadoes.  We really feel for those people, some have lost everything or are trying to save everything from rising waters.

Almost like summer

Less than a week to go until Ruth returns and we can hit the road again. When she gets back, we're heading to Cape Breton Island to explore the Cabot Trail. We were there in the summer of 2008 and it's a beautiful part of the world so we're looking forward to going back there for a couple of weeks.

We're going to have a contest!

With a valuable RV related item as a prize!

No rain!

Well I think I have gone about 5 days here in Ontario with no rain.  I think that is a record!  It still hasn't been real nice spring weather, except for Saturday when I went to Plattsburg to pick up Alex, that turned out to be a beautiful day.  It is still cool and more overcast than sunny, but I will take that, it helps keep the mosquitoes at bay.

Almost BBQ weather

Yesterday turned out good enough that it almost felt like barbecue weather. They had been calling for showers again, but it never did rain. Good thing, because Lindsey and Justin and Cameron came up to visit and go for a hike.

Motorhome repairs

I spent some time yesterday afternoon working on Sherman. You know, that "to do" list that I am going to get done before Ruth returns!

School is Over

Yesterday was a long day for me.  I was going to Plattsburgh, NY to pick up our son, Alex for the very last time.  After 5 years of college and university in the States he is finished for good.  He has graduated with honours with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Math.  Way to go Alex, we are so proud of you.

Online medication

Whiskey (now 15 years old) has a heart murmur that has essentially caused congestive heart failure. She has been prescribed a medication called Vetmedin that makes her heart pump more efficiently.

A Nice Hike

This is the second post for the day.  To read Kevin's earlier post just click on the previous post.

We I didn't do very much yesterday.  I woke up to rain and it continued off and on throughout the day.  So I stayed inside for most of it.  I did make my dad his favourite cake and later took KC, my dad's dog for a short walk while there was a break in the weather.  Then later on made a nice fish dish for supper.
