Sometimes, you just never know…

Yesterday we were driving home from Bracebridge, back to Woodstock, and we usually stop at the highway stop at King City, just above the Wonderland cut off for a rest break.  You just never know what you will find anywhere these days, and check out what I found at the rest stop!

What a shirt!  Any trademark registered product of the Leaf’s sells for big dollars in Ontario, but this stop had these shirts on sale for $9.00… love it!


Today was real warm however a bit overcast this morning, but I did manage to get 1/2 of the driver’s side of the RV waxed!  Only the rear 1/2 to go and the job is done for 6 months!


Bless her heart, Judy was getting her cardio workout this morning… check it out!


In yesterday’s blog I reported on some water problems at our friend’s house up in Bracebridge… Rick from Rick & Paulette's RV Travels wanted to know the outcome.  So, I had to do some investigating today and thanks to technology, I am able to show the picture proof of how it went.

David report all went well and the job is finished and apparently working OK.  The first picture below shows how much they had to dig to get to the back of his yard from the side of the house, just missing the shed.  They had to go deep.  Once they passed the shed, they had to turn left down the swale for quite a piece to bury all the pipe.


This shot below is from the bottom of the swale, showing the big dig…


Starting to get filled in below…


All finished below, but just need to find some new sod to finish it off!


Thanks for sending the pictures up David! 

Finished the afternoon with a bit of shopping at Wal-Mart and that was it for the day!

Today, Ontario and all of Canada is remembering Constable G. Styles, 33 years old, who lost his life today in York Region (just north of Toronto) in the line of duty.  Very unfortunate.  Thank you for your service.

Till tomorrow…


  1. Great shirt. Love those bargains. I cannot believe how much they had to dig up in David's yard. Sure hope that fixed the problem.

  2. That was some trench they dug - almost a canal!

    Canuck shirts are probably selling cheap around here too!

    Saw the report on the news tonight about the police officer that was killed, so sad to see.

  3. nice shirt!..I agree with Rick..we could probably get a deal on some Canucks gear here too!!..
    that is quite the hole they dug..looks like they are 'diggin a moat'!!
    as for the police officer that was killed in the line of duty..that was very tragic..there are no words..just sadness for the family he left behind.
