What the heck did we do today???

One thing that I did not do was take any pictures!  What a bummer! 

Turned out to be one of the best days yet, are you all sick of hearing that yet???   It was about 85 deg. F. or 35 deg. C. and just sunny and hot.  What a perfect day!  

Tom and Cheryl ended up in a bit of an adventure getting back to Toronto.  The flight they were booked on last night, was overbooked by American Airlines.  They offered Tom and Cheryl a free Cab ride to L.A., plus a big meal allowance, plus a bag full of money, if they were forego their flight, and fly home overnight instead.  Oh ya, and they would also fly first class!  So they decided to take up American Airlines on the offer, and took the cab from Palm Springs to LAX and sat in the first class lounge drinking Crown Royal Black, until the flight took off last night at 11:00 from LAX to JFK.  The first class seats recline into beds, and they get blankets and pillows, so it was a nice ride over to JFK in New York.  Then, early this morning they flew from JFK to Toronto and got home around 11:00 a.m.  All is good, and they have a bag of money to boot!   Happy Campers!   Only fly in the ointment is that it was minus 15 degrees C. today in Toronto!  Ouch!  That hurts.  End result, they are home, and report they had a great time.  When I told them it was warm and sunny here, I could not read back the text message I received from them, not wanting to offend any blogging rules!

I spent 2 1/2 hours out at the flying field this morning… it was spectacular.

After lunch we decided to go into town and pick up a few needed supplies… this included a couple items that little Gwenny will require, as she is going to show up this Friday!

Actually got to wash the Jeep this afternoon, once the sun crept behind Mount Jacinta… nice to have it cleaned up for Gwenny!

Till tomorrow…


  1. Glad their home safe and sound and with extra money hanging around. But I sure don't envy them their weather. And I know how much Gwenny is going to appreciate the clean Jeep.

  2. nice deal that Tom and Cheryl got!!..I think I would take that even with the prize of -15 when they arrived home!!!..enjoy the sunshine..dark and rainy here!!

  3. Toronto was a degree warmer than the Windsor Tecumseh area last night the wind chill was bowing inat -28 C.

    It's about time.

  4. nice to hear they arrived safe and sound and in style no less..with a bag full of loot to boot...you could send us some of that weather here in Florida we're freezing...take care
