Gizmo with Claire's lollypop
Well ive been off the road for a week now, its a mixture of a few reasons, firstly 2148 is still sick, it looks like she burnt out a computer and fused a few wires together, the computer has been replaced but they cant get hold another wiring harness, i popped into the shop last night and had a chat with the fitter, he has no idea when the part will turn up.
The second reason is obvious, Claire & Andy are over and i would rather spend time with them than be on the road, my origional plan was to have 4 or 5 days off when they arrived, go back on the road for a week then take another 4 or 5 days off before they left. Well now they will be gone by the time i get back so im taking more time off now then cancel my next few days off.
Thirdly i have got tons of stuff t0 do, all the paperwork is done for the house now, the mortgage, the garage build, the insurance and the handover. Also there is quite a bit of work to do in the garden, Claire and Andy were keen to help so it got done in half the time, Claire, who dont forget is pregnant, as if we could forget 8¬), insisted on cutting the lawn, not to worry though, though because it's one of those lawn mowers that drives its self, so it's pretty effortless, you just pull the lever and hang on.
Andy and i painted the fence and i got one of those gas run weed whackers ($89 from Canadian Tire) not bad eh?
Once all the work was done we had a BBQ using the firepit, on the way back from Lethbridge we had a call from Kev & Lisa so we asked them to come round too. A great time was had by all and we got the food cooked minutes before a torrential down pour. Gizmo got the chance to meet Shelby but i dont think he was to keen.
Anyway this morning we had a little tidy up and Jan (to her horror) managed to find a Garter Snake in the flower bed. Andy was chuffed to bits as he loves stuff like that and even got Claire to hold it.........................
Oh and im going to Laredo TX tomorrow.............
