Lots of good comments on last nights blog about the cell phones. Sara asked about whether an American Trac Phone works up here in Canada, she is down in Az. The answer Sara, is no… the U.S. phones do not work as soon as you hit the border, too bad, as they are a lot cheaper for Canadians.
Bill and Karen left a comment, about a nightmare of a storey with their Bell Cell Plan. The phone agent indicated to them they had a data plan for their smart phone, when in fact they didn’t, and ran up a $2,500 bill in TWO days! Yikes… One thing that I forgot to mention in last night’s blog, was that Bell made a MAJOR update to the web site, and you can easily now track your daily usage, and when my phone flips over on Oct. 28, I will be checking to make sure I do not run into the problem they had… you can go to yesterday’s comments and read their whole story.
Still up in Bracebridge today, and helped David with a whole bunch of yard work. It was raining here all morning, but we got started right after David treated me to a great breakfast out at a Family Restaurant! Thanks David!
It was cool and wet here as David makes his way to the back yard to clean up the shed… David had surgery on his arm this week, so that is why the vice-grips we needed are in his mouth! He will be flying on one wing for a while…
Now for all the full time residents of Az. and Ca. this thing below is a snow blower… Start motor, turn on auger, drive forward, and all the snow disappears! Every Canadian has probably owned one of these in their lifetime! We got this one all fired up and ready to go when the snow comes here, which will be soon.
We fully serviced the John Deere Tractor for grass cutting, changing the oil, greasing and lubricating every piece on it that moves. It is now safely tucked away in the baby barn.
We also cleaned up the garage, (aka man cave) put away a bunch of stuff in the basement, and did all the good things that needed doing this time of the year.
Looks like all the work is done here, so soon will be heading south to Orillia to have dinner with my Mom. After that, it will be due south to Woodstock and back to the RV.
